    SO i ahvent been online for a couple days and now that i am, i have seen like huge threads about this new ps3 key released by geohot. I am completely confused as to what they are. Can someone please tell me what they are and how to use them? Any insight would be great. Thanks

    How douchey of you. The guy asks a question and you post a smiley? Very useful.
    Rydian explained the uses of keys in his thread.

    EDIT: Bulit beat me to it.

    Not yet, but I suppose some people are in the mist of making something.

    I think someone posted someone posted something about some sort of homwbrew in the thread... I'll go check.

    EDIT: Can't find it, maybe I'm just imagining it.

    The corner in that dark alley.
    Geohot went to Sony headquarters in Japan and on the desk, he found a key. Puzzled, he took it home and tried jamming it in his PS3's USB slot. Upon several attempts, he managed to get the key stuck inside. He realized he found a PS3 key. Now, people everywhere around the interwebz are sticking keys up their PS3's asses and finding out it fits, and thus, they are able to hack. The end.

    AYEBEETROLOLLIN.

    Nah, just kidding. Go here, foo! o3o

    Not much use, seeing that they already posted the link up there, but now people everywhere (who have PS3s) are going to be looking forward to homebrew, and unfortunately, more online cheaters and pirates. o3o=b
