Y'know I had a thought... rather than filing a class action lawsuit against Sony which truth be told, would be hard to win in any court due to $ony's C.Y.A campaign with their EULA and TOS, maybe people should consider a class action against George Hotz himself, for ruining our gaming experience.
Hear me out here... George clearly DID violate $ony's TOS, causing them to go apecrap and put out these hastily thrown together updates, which in turn has not only stripped many users, INCLUDING the federal government, of Linux usage ability on PS3... it has also caused irreparable damage to other systems that have been bricked, that are out of warranty.
It would have been one thing had he kept his promise of CFW and effectively "jailbreaking" the PS3, but he didn't. Now, thousands upon thousands of users are screwed, one way or another.
Thats like handing over your prized Ferrari to some guy who "claims" he can increase the speed and horsepower... and three months later when you go to pick it up, the car's now a pile of scrap, and all he can say is "My bad."
Just out of curiosity has anyone ever executed arbitrary code or controlled specific code flow with RAM glitching? I know Geohot claims to be able to load a SPE with that metldr or whatever AND use it, but I've yet to see any proof. Everyone else seems to still be trying to perfect dumping.
it seems to me like no.. the people who have figured it out seem to get pulled into the group of people who are not sharing any info.. demonhades is the only other group i see trying to do stuff but they are insisting on using cold boot attacks to get to info they could easily get if they would just figure out how to use the loaders.. and even if they do get what they are looking for using cold boot attacks it seems to me like in the long run they are still going to need to use the loaders to use the info they MIGHT find using cold boot attacks.. so i dunno.
Yeap, 3.30 to play it. In a game company sense, other OS is nothing, so they support sony such as rockstar with red dead redemption, unless we get a "Ubuntu 10.04 the game" haha but as a consumer im still pissed that they removed a feature that i had already had and owned.
Ya, me neither for now. It´s alright though there´s still a great library of games to choose from and I still have to catch up and get a few. I already picked up GOW3 but I still need heavy rain. Gt5 might be the turning point for me.
meh, might just pick up a slim or a second hand ps3. I can´t see myself permanently losing the OS feature. It´s just not going to happen to my phat babies.

well we pretty much learned from this that ppl should either share or keep their mouths shut until they archive their original goals! it just has been awhile since geohot's last update, and we already know that what geohot is claiming to have these days devs have probably done it and tried it in a long time ago (messing around with PUPs files)... so i guess we should just move on and forget about him.
let's focus on more honest groups like jaicraB and demonhades look at geohot what's the point of posting videos without releasing? i can make a fake video and i tell ppl that i don't wanna share lol, but we all know that geohot isn't a faker!
anyway i think he sacrificed his reputation for the sake of his ego... but honestly he's quite hard to understand, sometimes he gives you those promises and sometimes he give you this "mind your own business thingy i don't wanna share" lol i guess rather than call him "god of the iphone" we should call him "the god of hypocrisy."
Hi, i just purchased read dead redemption and didn't know that i had to update to 3.30 for that and there are no news from ps3 devs neither from geohot about cfw, so i would like to ask you all whether i should update or i should keep my game at my shelf and wait until any further news comes.
i don't wanna lose other os and i too want a fully hacked ps3.
