Yeah, PS3PROXi doesn't work anymore. DAMN IT! Now's the time where only the strongest withstand the urge to update.

Hopefully we'll get a REAL CFW soon.

Wow, that's all very elaborate, I figured that I would show my disgust by not buying any more games...hit 'em in the pocket.

BTW...I am no pirate, and I normally do not support piracy. It is theft, or at least half a theft. However, sony removing OtherOS is a theft as well, and should be punished in kind. I truly hope that the PS3 becomes a fully-cracked, pirate-ready platform just like the PS2 did...to the point that it is easier & faster to run a pirated game than a legal one.

Would this teach sony a lesson? NO - lacking linux support on the PS2 was the primary catalyst for it being broken (this is a big part of the reason why the PS3 launched with linux support in the first place!). Now they kill linux support, and in the process start a whole new revolution. And guess what...the PS4 will probably launch with Linux as well; and it will probably be removed by a firmware update too. Sony never learns...

You know guys, when the PS3 does become openly accessible to consumers, let's just think out of the box here.

We'll have our own network to let our ps3's connect to. PSN won't be our only option to go online anymore. Sounds like an idea that would/will be released for us. I mean it's the only option that will keep us off sony's network and allow us to share/play/chat/etc/

I'm sure we'll have filesharing apps on the PS3, XMB mods to allow custom friends lists, servers, etc.

If people don't want to be controlled, we have the brain power and audacity to get out of it.

Plain and simple

tl;dr = I doubt we'll be under $ony's control after the PS3 exploit is publicly released, patch as they must - the users that aren't on their network cannot be affected. Show them who's boss.

Solution: PACKET INJECTION using a PC middleman.

How? Will have to study how. But then, the more experts here should be way advanced than me and can do this sooner. I will not claim to be an expert but my work is with linux, unix, and networks. If any help I can extend, let me know.
