Now for the part about hackers keeping their identities a secret and Geohot being the only one to take the fame... you probably wont want to use Cydia anymore because a lil hacker by the name of Jay Freeman made that app that is probably the most well known hack store in the world. Like i said not trying to talk down to you but please make sure to understand what you are saying before you say it.
P.S. I'm glad you at least donated to something in the end, thats what really matters

GeoHot can act like an @sshole and he can be an idiot too, that's called being human. Not a single one of us is perfect in every which way.
We all know what he's done for the iPhone community, regardless of any of his flaws, he still gave to the community free of charge his hard work.
So what if he wants a bit of recognition to show off his genius and pride in his work... Nothing wrong with being acknowledged or wanting the acknowledgement of something you accomplished. It is well-deserved.
If you don't agree and don't want to help him, don't jailbreak your iDevice. If you can't stay away from that, the least you could do is not talk about him like he's undeserving of anything.

Self dug hole? C'mon some of you, it's just stupid to think that. It's no different than if the Dev team released a jailbreak and Apple sued them. Sony is just being stupid.
Just my two cents.

Geohot, you ruined MW2 online for me.
"I know I'll release a custom firmware so that 99% of people who will use it are kids and then they can ruin online for the casual player."
You got yourself into it but seeing as I'm 20 years old and as soon as MW2 patch comes, I'll probably donate. I still like Sony, I love Japanese technology and will carry on buying Sony TV's and PlayStation's.

He should have blocked access to the Game Data folder if he didn't want people to hack games or pirate them.

Yeah GeoHot! You show those guys that what they're doing is not cool! I'm gonna go play my PS3!How come they can't play fair with US instead of the other way around?

If you don't get my point----what's the point of hacking something, then locking a hacked file--- and furthermore, those same modders after the file is locked, can unlock it.
Yes, I play ps3 too, and I understand it can be frustrating, but think about that logic there.
Hack a firmware, and just lock it back up?
Forgot to mention, I totally support geohot.

It's touching how many ppl care about someone they don't even know. I have nothing against GEOHOT, FYI, I am just impressed at everyones kindness. The comments just prove it.

this is a very very intriguing case and I hope the best for Geo. I donated immediately after reading the first article on here over the weekend. Like the other people have said, even if you don't donate for themes(which is rediculous if you don't), the LEAST you could do to show appreciation to a jailbroken device is throw a couple of bucks his way.

As many of you are upset at Geohot for what he was able to do, he is giving you freedom of choice. Jailbreak, don't jailbreak. If he did not jailbreak the PS3 someone else would have. All PS systems have been hack. almost all game systems have been hack. Someone would hack it and we would have the same issues going on. It is Sonys responsibility to fix the issues. Thay should thank Geohot for showing their mistake. Plug the hole and move on. I understand Sony, but they are going overboard. It's my PS3 I should be able to do what I want with it. All my old PS systems i modded so I could back up my games and use the back up. They just scratch to easy. My XBOX is modded so I can save my disks to the hard drive and not have to change them every time. My PS3 is NOT jailbroken and most likely will not ever be jailbroken unless new cool functionality comes to it. I am not going to save my games to the hard drive as they are getting bigger and bigger. I will how ever FULLY SUPPORT GEOHOT. If Sony gets their way this is just a stepping stone for the future.Sony has a right to ban jailbroken systems from the PSN. That I agree with, but not every thing else. NO COMPANY should have the right to tell you what you can and can't do with your system. Next it could be computers. Microsoft telling you you cant put 2 video cards into the computer or stupid stuff light that. Ya its far fetched but this is the direction its going.
Its like this. If i buy a car and modify it, i can, why because its mine. If a dealer told you that if you change the stereo in the car to one with GPS they woudld Sue you because they want to sell you the GPS you would tell them to go **** and buy it some where else. This is basically what Sony is saying. You buy my stuff and change it they will sue you because they are going to loose money other wise.
My 2 cents.
I FULLY SUPPORT GEOHOT. GO AHEAD AND CLOSE MY ACCOUNT SONY. YOU WILL LOOSE MORE MONEY FROM ME. LETS SEE. I HAVE SPENT ABOUT $500+ LAST YEAR ON THE PSN. (Dam Rock Band and Movies).

apple... ms... someone give this kid a job after this ordeal... isnt that what usually happens to hackers that get into bigtime trouble? if anything this will end good for geo even if he loses the lawsuit (i hope he gets something out of this anyways)
even when he released the ps3 jb.. he added the disclaimer to sony that they should hire him to amp up their security.. but instead of giving this kid a 40,000$ salary, they wanna waste millions trying to make an example.

"Self dug hole"? You seemed to have no problem jumping into that hole to jailbreak your phone there skippy...
Cause you know that the only reason a person Jailbreaks is to pirate apps right? So you must be a pirate too!
What the hell happened to this forum anymore?!?!?Herp a derp a derp a doooo!
