    as far as i know, geohot only needed otheros for getting the key to sign his own pup file containing his own custom firmware. but he was able to update it through a normal restoring over the system itself.

    All of this is because geo scremed like a child "I've hacked the ps3!" but wait, he didn't.
    There is no doubt we'd be far ahead if he shared his info and worked with others in private. It's been almost 2 months since his last update, it seems like he's tucked his tail and ran away. Thanks for screwing things up George.

    I would like to see the ps3 hacked... you know, homebrew, applications, and all the custom goodies... But I bought my console to play, play online... so I'll be one of those that followed the Homebrew scene... but made the hacking moves late.

    I use to follow Geohot's work, both his reverse engineering and his robotics, but recently quit. I agree he's pretty much tucked tail and run. To be honest I don't see him ever doing anything else with the PS3 and maybe not even Apple products again. It's a bad idea to wait on him.

    Also his custom CFW video as others have stated is easy to emulate by editing unsigned parts of firmware. I wouldn't put it past him to do something like that to keep himself in the spotlight, especially since he's old news now in the Apple scene, other people got tired of his BS there too and went ahead and did a untethered unlock.

    All his his 'exploit' has done is destroyed functionality for end-users. Right after he screwed up what we paid money for he decides to retire. That's kind of ass-kicking worthy..

    It requires to have a certain fw version to play, that is not easy to spot before buying a game.. i personally have internet though so i have no problem with the updates.

    I'm asking... Why in this topic as other option there is to buy a second PS3 (for me give to money to a company that absolutely not deserve it) rather than take a beautiful XBOX 360 ?

    Like said before, this is no surprise. $ony has cleverly handled the whole situation since EgoSnot's supposed hack. They have done all the corrective steps to dissuade devs to hack away on what they perceive as "their system" - even against the odds of class action law suits against them.

    And if you sit back and think about it, they seem to have been prepared for this a long time ago - even before the supposed hack. Yet, if you don't upgrade, you have the most beautiful doorstop what can play games prior to 3.21 with OtherOS. And if you do, you have everything except OtherOS... $ony is playing the game and seems to be winning - but there is still hope (but not from EgoSnot).

    Well - at first - by purchasing (another) PS3 alone Sony is still catually loosing money anyway. And - secondly - having all the games and accesories for PS3 it's still cheaper for most to simply get another PS3 (at cost 4 to 6 new games) and keep the first "hackable" one in the box for the neaar future. You can alway sell one or another down the line - either the new one if the old one would be succesfully hacked, or even old one with pre 3.21 fw as there will be still increasing demand for those as they will be slowly "eliminated" by Sony. You can even decide to sell it now with some small profit after purchasing let's say new slim

    i bet you where one of those who posted on his blog "wah you are such cool geohot! can't wait for your custom firmware."

    and now flaming him because he did what was needed for getting the way. without geohot there would be still a otheros yes, but without him there would be no dump of lvl1 and even lvl2.
