[PS3Crunch] Geohot is Asking for Your Donation

If you happen to read this post, you should know that geohot has done a lot to the scene, especially with those metldr keys. Not sure what i can do with it though, but it’s a big lot of contribution, period. So, when he asked for help, we help.

Furthermore, George Hotz has wrongly been accused for piracy. He didn’t want you guys to patch lv2, there is no app_home in his CFW and he keep for himself the npdrm keys – thing. That’s, i think, a huge effort to prevent of what Sony said to prevent in the court.

Read further here for an excerpt of Geohot's plea for help:

No thanks. Yeah what he has done is great and all...but I've never used anything that he's done, and I never will. But in all fairness Sony are just trying to protect what's theirs. They should allow homebrew applications to be used, because I remember them saying in a press statement a few years back they would release a game engine for anyone to use on the PS3. But then again, piracy is possible with what GeoHot has done. They're just scaring anyone else from taking it that one step further. But it's unfair the amount of penalisation they're putting on him, because he did not condone piracy, in fact was quite adamant that that's no what it was for. Meh oh well.

Jailbreaking an ios device with geohot's tools makes piracy possible. Wy don't apple care? Perhaps they will if sony succeed.

Right, I will donate to the person who was responsible for the removal of "Other OS" and the same person who told people not to upgrade from firmware 3.4 because he will release a custom firmware "soon". All he did at that time was preventing people from enjoying PSN by a broken promise.

How many times must this be told to ppl.

The main reason Other-OS went bye bye is because pre-PS3 Slim, Other-OS was losing Sony money due to companies and Government institutions buying them up for their cheap Cell CPU.

On-Topic: Who does this guy think he is, Julian Assange?

Uh, proof?

From what I see, it was removed because it was being used as a means to open the console up further.

I'd help the guy out since he was kind enough to provide a jailbreak for my old iphone. There are people that charge for that, and yet he did it freely. That's what some call returning the favor.
