I'm pretty broke myself, but my paypal account had a little bit of money in it, and I can't think of a better cause, then to Geohot and the defense of consumer rights.
I donated. I've had an iPhone 3G and currently own an iPhone 4 and PS3. Geohot has made my devices usable.

I don't even have a PS3 so I don't give a **** but donated.

You sow your own fate ...
I'm getting married this year if anyone wants to donate money to me, I'll set up a website where you can donate via paypal!!

I just donated $200 alot of you guys are making great points, alot of others are small minded. Look if you have never used a jailbreak a hack etc... Then feel free talk all the crap you want. But this guy has done so much for our community that it would be irresponsible not to help him out. If you love ur hacks themes cydia for that matter then donate at least one dollar. Because if sony wins we could soon loose cydia and the ability to jailbreak out apple products period. And if u don't like him personally your an idiot you never met the guy, but he gives u stuff for free. Get over yourself this about bullies picking on the little guys and we are those little guys let's go after the bullies
02-20-2011, 01:14 PM #27I donated.....
I support the cause for consumer rights!!!! [email protected] just donated
02-20-2011, 01:22 PM #28I'm in for $500
Confirmation number: 55H117822H9379454
Donation amount: $500.00 USD
Total: $500.00 USD
Purpose: SCEA v Hotz Legal Defense Fund
If you are on this site, and if you have EVER jail-broken an iPhone or iPod, and you don't think you should send money to this kid, something is very wrong with your reasoning in my estimation.
This has nothing to do with how you feel about Geo personally, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know a corporate bully when you see one. This is what the internet is for- to allow individuals to come together to combat an oppressive force in a way that has never been historically possible. The kid needs help, I for one sent him some.
Did anyone notice that all the people saying this guy should be strung up or is gettin' what he deserves are running MSFT OS's? What's up with that? :-D

I'm definitely throwing some sheckles his way. He's done a ton for the JB community and deserves our support. This isn't just about his rights, its about all of ours!

I am donating. I don't even own a PS3 but I do believe in consumer rights. He is being singled out and Sony is trying to make an example of him. Lets not let the big corporations intimidate us with these scare tactics. We as the consumers DO HAVE the right to modify our equipment. I bought it I own it I can do whatever I please with it.....screw off!!!

Yes GeoHot has the right to mod any system he owns, as do well all, but he did not have the right to distribute private information belonging to Sony. (i.e the PS3 Keys)
He knew perfectly well that by posting them on his own website that he would kick off a lawsuit from Sony. If he wanted to let others avail of his work he could have very easily "leaked" the necessary information anonymously.
Btw, Sony also have the right to protect their games division from piracy which what all system modding eventually leads to, whether the original hackers like it or not.
So I'm sorry but I'm not giving this guy a cent. In my opinion he brought this on himself.

Acting out for more attention, spread the word..? Wtf.. Grow up. If these hackers had such strong feelings toward how Sony operated -- they would've attacked the issue from the get-go. The big crusade for all thats wrong with the world always starts *AFTER* they get stuck in a tight situation.. Like a child. It's never your fault, it's the big evil corporations! Those are people's jobs, PC's and home gaming consoles are two completely different things, yea it came with Linux.. You abused it to the point where it had to be taken from you, and everybody else. Take some responsibility and you might get taken a bit more seriously, the evil corporations supply JOBS for people who have families to support while you devise ways to manipulate systems to your advantage, now it's the legal system and all for what? Some childish need for attention so people can see how clever you are? Sadly, I do agree Sony needs to be taken down a notch but after the silly battle rap and constant whining I already know Sony will win. You're not Robin Hood looking to make information free for all, its always the "GeoHotz Show", if that were the case you would have banked on the iPhone unlock and approached this thing with the intention of making permanent change. You're not the only hacker out there, you're just the loudest. Egomaniac. Even still, I donated anyway.. I wish you the best, I just know you can be much better if only we could update your bloody firmware.
Godspeed & God bless.
