    This is pretty sad. The Wii scene has had people leak stuff before but this sure is not a good start for the PS3 scene.

    Proud to be Portuguese but live in USA.. for now.
    I hope that it will stay this way and no leak. Not worth!

    Did you even read the article? It WAS leaked.

    And then System menu 4.00 is released. How did I know that was going to happen this quickly?

    It's apparently contained now.

    And I just read that the PS3 is having an update to 4.0.
    This is exactly the sort of thing that KaKaRoTo was worried about.
    I remember him saying in his blog that Sony will patch the jailbreak even before he were to release it.
    Question now is if Sony caught wind of this and whether the 4.0 update actually patches the jailbreak...

    EDIT:

    There's actually been an update from KaKaRoTo regarding the leak. Turns out, it wasn't a leak, but a misinterpretation.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Dreamland.


    This isn’t “breaking” news or a “big-incoming leak“, just pointless scene drama that everyone is jumping the gun on and spreading misinformation. KaKaRoToKS claims the leak was “incomplete”, so whoever decided to leak it know that it pretty much ruined his work.

    This is a pretty contained/internal leak, most of you won’t find it.

    Also read the "Update" part, nothing has been leaked.

    can the title be changed and/or this topic be locked?
    there was no leak, just miscommunication.
    thanks

    I haven't really followed PS3 hacking that much mainly since I didn't have a PS3. Now that I'll have a black friday 2011 ps3 slim bundle.

    Well, what would be so bad about his jailbreak/hack being leaked? I assume the worst thing would be that sony find's out about it and releases OFW to disable the method, but isn't it standard to not update your systems if you want it hacked at all? I assume someone else might try and take credit for it. But 1. this is the internet 2. humans can be dicks 3. he's hacking the PS3 which people use to pirate games.

    If it was leaked and he decided to quit. I would call that akin to a kid playing basketball with his friends, getting mad and taking his basketball home. That;s just my thoughts though.

    That's not a proper comparison at all. That's about some people who are working together on something.

    With this, it's him. It's his work.

    But I still don't see why he would just quit if it was actually leaked. Sure it's his work but all he's doing is hacking a system, if he can't handle his work getting stolen and have it passed off as someone else's. Then hacking just isn't the field he should be in, he already has fans as it seems and they all got their panties into a bunch over something that actully didn't happen.

    again, just my thoughts.

    I think people have the right to be
    The entire existence of copyright law says hi. It's an entire title of US law (title 17, not sure what it is in other systems like in the UK) about how it's bad to take somebody else's work for your own without permission, so obviously it's considered an important factor in our society.

    Piracy may seem to be contained in that and legally it is (though only via a few works), but there's a difference between taking a copy of something privately, and proclaiming it's your work.

    You think the US Government would grant him copyright over something specifically and solely designed to hack a PS3? The last time I saw someone try that the person was named GeoHotz and Sony seemingly very nearly destroyed him. As I've said before i'm basiclly a total noob when it comes to the "PS3 scene" and other hacking scenes as well. Though, if I was him, I'd kind of be more worried about Sony breathing down my neck then if my code gets leaked.

    also it's clear whatever was or in this case wasn't leaked was unfinished by his standards. I'd love to see him finish his work since I look forward to making full use of my PS3.

    I didn't mention it being copyrighted, I brought up the fact that there's an entire title of US law dedicated to the concept of intellectual copyright in order to show that it's considered important in our society, so it's not like it's out of hand that somebody would get mad if they think their work is stolen.

    Yeah I totally agree with you, and if I was in his position I would be upset over a leak of my own work. but at the same time i wouldn't act surprised that it happened. I got my PS3 black friday bundle in today from amazon, but sony got me to update to 4.00 since I couldn't log into PSN store otherwise. I bought 2 years of PS+ from target during that ad misprint.

    I'll just hack my PS3 when its "dead".
