I can't believe how many people on his blog are flaming PS3News for criticizing him. Feeding his ego will not help move things forward. Until him and his monkey share what they know, the PS3 scene will suffer the same fate as the iPhone scene. Unless you start a wiki, right guys?
And @mathieulh even though the dump may not be complete they still managed to do something "ON THEIR OWN"... And this dump can be definitely improved if at all there's some problem. And i think that's more important.... You should be more of a helping hand rather than criticizing their work... I think we would be getting lots of updates now about the various vulnerabilities...
Yep, I give it between a few days to a week before a "proper" LV2 dump is done and shared publically.
It's amazing how immature Mathieulh is though, and easy to see why GeoHot chose him as neither enjoy sharing with the PS3 community and prefer to act "elite" while half of the scene is laughing at them with the other half remaining in the dark.
If the people only knew what is in store for them though... I tell CJPC this often, sad but true. When Mathieulh (through one of his fictitious groups such as M33) finally ends up releasing something for PS3 end-users, the "rush" from all the users thanking him will be shortlived.
Just as he aided in crippling the PSP scene over the last year and a half, it won't be long before his attitude turns from "be sure to praise me" to "hey, I'm bored of this now" to "I'm against warez now" and finally to "you don't deserve this" and the releases will stop. Why bother in the first place, eh?
For those who don't know, this is why it's critical for such things as the HV dumps to be in the hands of many others, so that a single group doesn't 'control' the PS3 scene as they did with the PSP scene for so long.
The PS3 is a hobby, and while normal hobbyists are more than willing to freely exchange information with those in their field GeoHot and Mathieulh tend to only do it when they can show off and get attention. Way to represent, eh?
As for updates, if I guess right GeoHot will post a lot more of what he's done over the last six weeks soon (all we've seen is an RCO Edit pic since then) in a vain attempt to reclaim the limelight from JaicraB and DemonHades... and he will, but not with PS3 Devs unless he shares more than pictures and videos with no relevant details to go with them.
However, while GeoHot will be remembered years from now as doing some things "first" with the PS3, nicer folks like xorloser, JaicraB and DemonHades will be remembered as those who actually contributed most to public PlayStation 3 development.
i think someone who can do this dump (i can't do) should try to update the retail ps3 to debug update and then see where he gets the error so after that he should dump the level2 immediately and find out what did ps3 look for when its updating before gets the error.
