    Official PS3 hack/mod thread (READ OP)

    In light of recent events, it has been decided that it is best to have all discussion on these matters in one place, stickied. There has also been a revision of the PSU rules with regards to these issues and these are stated below:

    5. No hacking/Mod discussion - All information regarding hacking/modding the Playstation 3 will go into one sticked thread in the PS3 Discussion sub-forum. All information regarding hacking/modding the Playstation Portable (and any of its subsequent successors) will go into one sticked thread in the PS1, PS2 & PSP Discussion sub-forum. In these threads, no links to forums or news sites discussing how the hack/mod can be achieved will be tolerated. In addition, links to websites selling hardware pre-hacked/modded, or offering to sell equipment that can be used to hack/mod the PS3 and PSP are banned. Members are forbidden to post information or instructions that would enable another user to hack/mod their PlayStation 3. Similarly these rules will be upheld for hacking/modding the Wii, DS and the Xbox 360 for those respective systems. A stickied thread will be created in the appropriate sub-forum if members wish to discuss these matters. Linking to or naming websites that provide ISO's, ROM's or their related software is also not allowed.
    All posts in this thread and the rest of the forum must adhere to these rules.

    Discuss the topic within those rules.

    Because now all the non-sense is in one thread! It's illegal, and Im just glad we aren't allowed to talk about how to get it etc. Sony have rights to sue these people, as it uses there code, which isn't what the jailbreak community are about. For example, iPhone jailbreaks are not released until none of it is Apples code, as Apple can sue them and shut it down. These guys have just done just that, releasing something using Sony's code, and are also operating on a profit margin.

    I can imagine Sony have a Firmware Update being made as we speak!

    Oh and btw, I'm not against the idea, just the team that have released this one.

    It's so this new thread begins with a clean slate because of the revised rule. If I just randomly posted in the other thread the new rule, some people would see it and some people wouldn't. In addition, the revised rule only allows for one thread on these matters.

    What we have now is a clean cut. A new thread with a revised rule that everyone can see (they've been told to read the OP after all).

    Where's all the info gone from the other thread?

    I mean people (not me) take their time to try and explain stuff to others about this and then it all vanishes and it gets replaced with an empty thread.

    Anyway there's a funny story on N4G about the pirates being pirated already. They're begging you to buy the original device from them 'cos you get warranty

    There's gotta be a hefty dose of irony there.

You were the one who questioned me on it and I showed why I think he was being dishonest but you go on later to deny that he even did that and so brought it up again and now you want talk about me? lol how is that going to prove anything to anyone about geohotz?

    He lied about where he stands on piracy. He lied. If he lied about not having a PSN then he lied again. We'll just see....

    And before stating all this, I did say that I am not saying that he enabled piracy despite his lies about where he stands on the issue.
    Yes, I understand where you're coming from,and I'm not trying to make it out to be you. I was using that as an example. People claim he's dishonest, untrustworthy, etc., etc., and I'm just wondering how that fits into the world outside of geo; because most of the people here hate him because he "hacked the PS3", and not because he's dishonest. Case in point, some members here dislike him for jailbreaking the PS3, while they use the jailbreak for the iphone he created... smh

    Don't feel sorry for me. I don't need your sensationlistic charity, or sympathy. I gave money to someone I don't even know. Period. If someone donates money like that without accepting the possiblity that it might not be used for what he claimed, then that's their own fault for being so dubious. Again, you're assuming he used the money inappropriately, or misapproprated the funds to something else.

    UPDATE

    Update: Stewart Kellar, Hotz's attorney, has responded saying the missing hard drive parts have now been delivered.

    "The 'integral components' SCEA is talking about are stock controller cards, not the hard drives themselves," Kellar told IGN in an e-mail. "The neutral subsequently had to explain to SCEA the form and function of hard drive controller cards. Those controller cards have since been provided to the neutral so the point is moot."

    Kellar also states Hotz is using the donation money he received for the lawsuit only and will donate any leftover funds after the case has been resolved.

    "You can never take a vacation from a lawsuit. Mr. Hotz has had to make himself available 24/7 for this litigation, which has been quite demanding on him," he said. "You have to remember that Mr. Hotz didn't choose to fight this battle, but now that he has been sued, he has put his heart into fighting this case that has enormous implications for consumers world-wide."

    "As for any question as to whether Mr. Hotz has used donation money to take a trip to South America, that's pretty silly. Litigating against a massive company like Sony, who is represented by five attorneys, is very costly for a 21-year-old," Kellar added. "The donation money George has received is being used exclusively for his legal defense. If there are any funds left after the lawsuit, George is planning to donate the money to the EFF [Electronic Frontier Foundation]."

    I don't see how that 'settles' anything. He dances around the issue. He calls it silly, but doesn't actually say that the donation money wasn't used for his trip. If I have $5,000 and I end up getting into a lawsuit, I would exhaust all of my funds on that lawsuit before I asked for a hand out. And if I did end up getting donations, I would then use all donation money to cover the lawsuit expenses. Anything left would be given back and/or donated.

    I see no room for a 'vacation' in this scenario. If he didn't have enough money for lawyer fees, how did he have enough money to take a trip?
