Don't get your hopes up. After all the information (stolen video, sending the modchip to someone whose webpage is on the same server, etc.) that was posted in this thread it would be healthy to stay suspicious.
I think this is definately fake until proven otherwise, maybe idone will get a reply, but i'm thinking it may be very vague if he does. There should be at least some proof or images to show it works. The website looks very generic.
