Oh that is right, there isn't a legal way of doing that.

There are many legal ways of doing such. Your attitude in this thread has been terrible. You should back the hell of and look at yourself. Sure you have an opinion but can you put it across nicely and without offending someone?

And I think anything with a Pre-Slim PS3 has a right to install Linux on their PS3 given that they were sold as Linux baring machines and Sony will have a hard time in court fighting against that one.

I would like to know what this guys options are, because he sure as hell doesn't have to give Sony his computers so they can collect evidence on him. He didn't promote piracy and did not enable piracy on his hack. He did the ethical thing of asking for a job with Sony in order that he could help them tighten their security. This is one of the things you're taught in University about ethnical hacking. If you find an exploit, you let the company know and they often offer you a job. Sony just trashed years of education.

Game? I'm talking about a computer.

And I'm going to say what I said in another thread that was deleted. What Geohot did was extortion. He didn't nicely contact Sony. He threatened them with the option of "If you cooperate, I can save you from people like me". That's extortion and there is no way around it. He was trying to use illegal means (distribution Sony's software) to scare Sony into doing what he wants them to do. Had he contacted them nicely before contacting the world, he may have had a job by now. He went about it the wrong way and will suffer the consequences for it. Sony is making an example out of him and anyone in the future will know the correct way to handle this.

If I was him, I would back up the PS3 hack onto a memory stick, Hide the memory Stick, then wipe a magnet all over my Hardrive's, then give it to Sony

After 'debating' with him in a different thread, I've come to the conclusion that he's a

Sure, he has an opinion, but unless he's 10 he knows [or ought to know] that having an opinion and stating your opinion as fact are two different shades of two totally different colors.

Be that as it may, I think he handled it properly.

Sony made the first move by removing the other OS function. GeoHot retaliated, and rather than give Sony the chance to cover up the knowledge, he released it to the public.

Besides, it's true that this would be a much simpler matter if Sony gave him the job rather than throwing this hissy fit. What GeoHot did was legal [an there is legal precedent about unlocking devices], and Sony is abusing the law to try and make an example of him, when all they're doing is making him a martyr.

But keep in mind that its that very same "system" that allows you to do that in the first place

It certainly allows you to but (in the majority of cases) only if it likes you or if you have the influence, wealth and knowledge of legal affairs for white collar crime or if you 'sell' or if you are a puppy.
Or else such harsh measures are taken to terrorize the rest.

Those parents made an appeal but to no avail. They had to pay half a million in fine i think.
So that guy is extremely lucky for the time being.
