    No offence to Geohot, but he should just step down before he gets into even more shit.

    He thinks because he won against Apple that he can do it again. However, there is a bit more at risk here. This case should define all future modding regardless of which console.

    yeh. and they have nothing on him. did you read the court cases? they are saying that his jailbreak is the reason why people can pirate games on the ps3. but as he said when he first released the jailbreak. (it doesn't have any level2 pkg resigning software enabled!) so there is no way you can pirate any games with his jailbreak alone.

    other hackers like team fail0verflow, KaKaRoTo, Waninkoko, graf_chokolo, Hermes and Kmeaw are the reason why piracy is now possible.
    sony jumped the gun and sued the wrong guy. if they would have waited for the piracy to be running rampant and strategically sued the right person for copyright infringment then they might have a case

    but instead they are idiots and this is the reason why console hacking will become legal and more and more prevalent as the years go on. bring it ps4 and xbox 1080 or w/e you wanna call yourself. (*** wii btw)

    yeh but 360 softmodders just used exploits to manipulate the software.

    geohot can write his own software and sign it with sonys signature and run it.
    so really any source code he writes can be run on ps3.... see why its a big difference?

    Except the code of conduct is not a legally binding contract.

    I think the only good reaction any company has had to homebrew is MS with their Windows Phone 7. Go google it, cause I'm too lazy to elaborate...

    Geohot won't win the case since he is acting childish.
    Plain and simple as that.
