    Because Sony is so prone to keeping their golden child from having any vulnerabilities that they'll patch anything that seems remotely possible to be hacked. They know the guy is a hacker for the iPod at least, so it's not some nobody saying "HEY LOOK WHAT I CAN DO". They'll go to any lengths to patch up holes, even ones that aren't yet proven.

    And doubters aren't haters. Doubters are just those who ask questions.

    Hey, if there is CFW, we can install our own PS1 onto the PS3 >_> or download ones we don't have onto the full screen.

    He is the one that started it all in PS3 hacking, which is advancing really slow but it is. I just hope a CFW comes out just to play PS2 games. That's all I care. PS3 games are too much hustle to download (too dang big of a blue-ray)

    [​IMG] I want CFW on a ps3. Provided I buy one and can hack it. I wouldn't pirate ps3 games but I'd pirate ps2 games and hopefully could put them on a hard drive.

    @ragde You also have to buy blu ray disk which are $10 at least each and a burner. Which I think the burner is $100+?

    Actually PS3 scene started a lot earlier. You know, most hackers out there don't like to dangle winner's banners out of their windows if they still don't have something concrete in their hands first.
    Amongst all those lots of fake hacks, there were also serious hackers working on it. And it's not like what GeoHot has done now wasn't already achieved by others in the past.

    Maybe they had a exploit. Maybe it wasn't for kernel-mode, just user-mode. Maybe it only worked on a specific version of the OS.
    So why waste a good exploit doing stupid videos just to show that you have it, so to make Sony patch those holes?

    You see, it's not like everything that's happening behind the scenes gets blatant advertising like this.

    Not if you never planned on buying those games in the first place, if you were never going to buy them, you were never going to lose that money so in essence you still paid.

    Is he really the one that started it all in PS3 hacking? What developments have you seen from anyone besides the screenshots and videos by GeoHotz himself? It may very well be true that he's actually hacked the PS3, but until I see actual proof(maybe this CFW) I'll take his words with a grain of salt.

    well, i just glad that he doesnt go around telling people what were those exploits... God knows how many fixes were made by sony thanks to those tards(although i am thankful to them for finding exploits, but seriously? Is there really a need to go around telling people extra information).

    Anyway, like what they have mentioned, i will just look at it and take it with a pinch of salt.

    I don't see why so many people are like

    "Who this fuck would believe this little noob troll. Lololololol, I'll believe you when you release it you huge troll!"

    Do you guys realize who geohot is? He's like the creator of the ipod touch 2g jailbreak (iirc) and the ipod touch 3g/3.1.2 jailbreak. He made jailbreaking incredibly fast and simple by just clicking a button and waiting 5 seconds.

    As a side note to the people saying what's the point about CFW on a system with huge ISO files.

    That is the point. That's probably why geohot is interested in the PS3! It's a gold mine for a piracy free homebrew world. People won't see the point for USB loaders/backup loaders, so they'll make excellent homebrew instead!

    You know why people are like that? Because he hasn't released anything. This is the PS3 not the iPod touch/iPhone. I'll admit though, it seems like he'll release this "CFW", and his words will seem a bit more believable after that.

    Yah but people need to learn the difference between "Yo dudes chek dis shit out, i copied a file to mah pstree and it auto haxed it i'll release it 2night dawgs" and "Yesterday I correlated the mismatch of the registry check sums and found an obvious exploit just waiting to be taken advantage of!"
