It is true that it doesn't have any Sony code in it. The dongle merely fakes the jig ID and uses a stack overflow. The hack is just that, an exploit in Sony's system.
or instead of overwriting code, it overwrites the return address with the address of an opcode which will cause execution to jump to the user supplied data? e.g. PsJB code to turn it into DFU mode?

Don't think they will be able to sell the devices.. Which would also be a good thing anyway, as 9999 out of 10000 will only buy the device for playing illegal games.. It's only a handfull of people who actually would buy it for developing/playing homebrew.
well they removed OtherOS to prevent hacking, what are they to do next, disable the usb ports? The deeper they hack the greater chance of Sony releasing updates and bricking systems.
It doesn't bother me that people are trying to hack it but Im just concerned because I've heard older "fat" ps3 are the ones that are failing and I have one of those. But everyone has a purpose in life so more power to you guys. Keep up a good fight!!
Then just keep your firmware low and let the scene do what it does best
CFW may be a possibility.
From Ozmodchips twitter: "Hearing postponed till Friday bc the judge is bz.... :|"
Bad news, lets hope the shipment of PSJailbreaks doesn't arrive during that time? Wonder what the conditions are on the date moving til this Friday.
