    Go Geohot! I support you 100%! Sony already knows they have NO case and NO chance to win. They are doing this only to make a point and to try and punish Geohot. Sony has plenty of money and attorneys already on retainer, while Geo is asking for donations for his defense. Sony figures if they can Bankrupt Geohot it will make him go away. Keep fighting Geohot! We're all behind you! F Off Sony!

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.
    By giving that rant but still donating are you not the definition of hypocrite?

    Do you have any idea of the amount of work it takes to make an unlock?

    Tell you what, YOU create an unlock for 2.10.04 and I'll send $500 your way. I won't hold my breath, because I highly suspect you wouldn't know where to begin.

    The stress a lawsuit puts on you isn't fun at all. I've been sued by smaller legal firms, so being sued by a company like Sony is very stressful.

    You all are more than likely aware that geohot already has money out the *** and can afford this without your help, and more than often itll settle out of court then geohot walks away with your 500$ and so on donations

    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.
    I agree so many UNEDUCATED people to put it nicely on this forum who are clueless, they don't understand the fact they he got access to copyrighted information in the PS3 OS and leaked it when its in the T&C that its illegal, making a CFW and distributing it is totally different to what he did with the "keys". If he didn't want to get sued, he should have released the firmware from himself but leaked the "PS3 master key" anonymously like the iPhone Dev Team used to with the "Bootloaders" back in the iPhone 2G days, the BL3.9 and BL4.6 had to be obtained by yourself.

    I'm not donating anything to him either! Until MW2 online on PS3 isn't fixed I'm not giving a cent, I didn't mind people using the 3.41 PS3 Jailbreak to Data Transfer to hack MW2 but since Geohots jailbreak everyone's hacking and its damn right annoying.

    This is an iPhone hackign site so majority of the people on this forum know nothing about PS3 jaibreaking.

    I think that Sony are going about this the wrong way. Then again I want them to sue EgoHot for everything that he's got so that he finally takes his head out of his arse.

    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

    Ive donated too, $50 may not be a lot but it's all I got

    And it brings me to the post I made before about some people being stingey and ungrateful. Geohot has done a lot for the jb community. And whether he brought it on himself or not he's still a jb genius.

    My goal is to reach $355.00 as ps3's OFW 3.55 was beasted by geo. It's a landmark statement if you will.
    There is no reason to do something anonymously if it is believed to be legal and it will benefit our rights.

    @j.eck.arc.3d you hit the nail on the head..... it's the legal precedent this sets that's important to everyone in the Jailbreak community! Forget about the freedom of George Hotz and think about the future freedom of your iDevice....
