Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

t was Hotz who released the vital information/tools and enabled piracy just to earn some more fame.


Proof?

He did nothing to "reimplement OtherOS".


He released modified firmware that re-enabled OtherOS. In other words, you are lying.

Obviously, master key to decrypt and re-sign hacked executables is intended for piracy, but not "OtherOS" feature.


You are lying again. Those keys were needed to sign executables. FOR HOMEBREW. OTHER people used this information to enable piracy. You would be okay with suing the hardware store becuase the sold an axe that would later be used to murder someone.

Thom, please stop painting him as innocent sheep.


If you give me proof instead of lies, I might.

He knew that Sony may take appropriate steps because of his actions. And that didn't stop him.


Wouldn't stop me either:
