OzMods on PS3 Homebrew, PS JailBreak Contains No Sony Code

Sponsored Links
226w ago - Yesterday we reported that Sony halted PS JailBreak Australian sales and distribution, and today OzMods (linked above) confirms PS3 homebrew will still arrive next week while the PS JailBreak folks stand by their claim that the PlayStation 3 modchip contains no Sony code.

Below is an image from the PS JailBreak discussion via ConsoleWinkel.nl and OzMods full statement, to quote:

"28/08/2010 - Hello Everyone. On Friday the 27/08/2010 we where given some documents from the Lawyers representing Sony. The documents are Federal Court orders for a temporary injunction.

The Injunction states that from 24 hours of receiving the documents to the 31st of August OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier and anyone else in Australia:

• Give up all stock in our possession, including our sample

I guess it was lucky that the device was delayed by a couple of days. While many people that have received their sample and sent it off to cloners....we sent ours to a well known homebrew developer.

The developer we picked showed us various homebrew applications that he had already developed for ps3 dev units, that he wants to port over to retail units. Yes, PS3 homebrew is real and will start flowing through at a steady rate as soon as next week.

• Give up any stock we get between now and the 31st

We are not getting any between these times

• Ozmodchips also cannot:
or deal with PS Jailbreak devices

These are from the Federal Court of Australia.

All 3 Australian stores we appear in court in some form on the 31st of August. On the 31st the court will decide if there will be a continuation of the "ban" or if we are allowed to sell them.

Our views are the same as Quantronics who posted this info here. This is not OzModChips Vs Sony. This is not OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier Vs Sony. We would go as far as saying that is not even everyone in Australia Vs Sony. This will effect everyone that plans to buy such a device world wide.

It already sets a dangerous precedent. Everyone that was using OtherOS, everyone that has had a faulty PS3 laser... and those interested in PS3 custom firmware and homebrew applications. We cannot do it alone, we need the support of everyone the homebrew community, the media, engineers that understand the inner workings and anyone else that can provide support.

Regarding orders:

If the injunction becomes permanent we will refund everyone that has ordered from us. If it doesn't then we will send all orders as originally planned. There will be no delay to the planned shipping date. We would ask everyone to wait until then.

We have the money sitting in our account which will cover 100% refunds for everyone if that needs to happen. We kindly ask everyone to just hold off until the 31st, as we need all the time we can to prepare.

Thank you for your support!

-OzModChips Team"

Here is what the image says.. I corrected some typos, though not grammar.

Unknown: is your price still the same Psjailbreak?

Psjailbreak: Yes

Unknown: companys in Australian get a lot of problems ...Sony Halts Australian ReSellers..this is a big problem

Psjailbreak: It is a temporary injunction until Aug. 31

Psjailbreak: Will be reached then

Psjailbreak: Nothing illegal has been done

Psjailbreak: It is just a scare tactic

Unknown: cracking bootcode of Sony is in all country illegal. we selling consoles now for 10 years..we had problems with Sony aswell

Psjailbreak: There is no copyrighted code, and we have not interfered with any intellectual property law

Psjailbreak: Device is designed for homebrew

Psjailbreak: Nothing illegal

Psjailbreak: Product is designed very well so no problems can arise

Psjailbreak: This product is very different from every other mod


Unkown: yes..but all these shops returning customers money back...people in forums says order cancelled

Psjailbreak: It is just a scare tactic, and it is obviously working

Unknown: it will work in Europe also soon

Psjailbreak: Then everyone will be missing out on lots of profits

Psjailbreak: Too bad for everyone who gets scared easily

Psjailbreak: The strong willed ones will make more now

Unknown: yes but technically shops do not know how the Usb stick works..bootcode or something like that..because of this people scared and they think they cant win..we dont want to take the risk

PSjailbreak: But once you understand you will see nothing to be scared about

Psjailbreak: No copyright infringement

Psjailbreak: No interfere with intellectual property laws

Unknown: okay i will tell people

This is why I don't care to wait for 3 more years for an alternative solution to this dongle!

Unless of course it has the stolen code that has been mentioned in previous posts.. All Sony needs to do is prove that a small portion of the code on there is theirs and they will probably win.
