163w ago - Here is a video demoing my "custom firmware". I would have added something showing off the new features of 3.21, but oh wait, there aren't any.
This can be installed without having to open up your PS3, just by restoring a custom generated PUP file.
It's possible this CFW will also work on the slim to actually *enable* OtherOS; I'll know when my infectus gets here.
No release date yet, use the proxy hack to play online with 3.15
Note to the people who removed OtherOS, you are potentially turning 100000+ legit users into "hackers."

The only way to cover up this hole is removing otherOS. BECAUSE geo's exploit isn't software based, it's hardware based it's a memory bug you know? unless they either remove otherOS or return every ps3 in the market open it and change it lol and that would be impossible of course... I'm not defending them!
what they did is considered illegal in some countries, but it was a stupid move anyway because why bothering? when in reality a gameOS hack isn't really that impossible, who needs the otherOS when he already dumped the gameOS?
Well my friend, let me kindly ask you. Do you know the Twilight Hack used on WII ?
If something similar shows up on PS3, let's imagine an exploit that runs using god of war 3 first boss posseidon (just an exemple) $ony can disable this game that I bought to be played ? Or even better does the company can disable my blu-ray player ?
There is a good way to prevent piracy in the console, prevent it from powering on. Isn't that a very good idea ?
And thank god there are people like aries2k6 that think a little further over the problem.
I have noticed something about Geohot's post about 3.21OO... He said you have to stay on 3.15, but shouldn't you be able to just reinstall a new current version? On recovery mode it says "With a firmware 3.15 or higher" so shouldn't you be able to flash a 3.21 on a 3.21 system?
Although the EULA might be a legally binding agreement it does not supercede the Laws of a country. So even though it says they have the right to do ALL to protect themselves from piracy, it does not give them the right to break the law to protect themselves from piracy.
After all when Sony placed a rootkit on their CDs, it was to protect themselves from piracy. Unfortunately that violated consumers rights and was found to be illegal. The rootkit is just an example, the removal of the otheros is another matter but we'll find out if it's illegal or not through the court cases that have been filed against Sony.
Personally I hope they lose. I think, we the consumers, should have some rights also. What piracy?? as of now there is none. the Slim never had the otheros so all the consoles that are in retail are exploit/Piracy proof. So Sony is doing a preemptive-retroactive strike on my PS3?
Total BS in my opinion. Plus just because Sony said they removed it because of piracy doesn't mean they're telling the whole truth. they have been known to lie or omit the truth before.
what is illegal? that they decided to protect there console of getting hacked? no its not my friend. if you would read the user aggreement of sony, you would see that till the first day sony said if there is a possibility to get to piraciy functions with an exploit in the console, sony have the right to do all to protect the console.
i'm pretty sure you didn't read that, so i think your not in the position to post like this.
