That depends on the country actually. In the U.S. cracks are a grey area. Depending on the situation it might fly, but generally not. I know it's a bad example, but trainers aren't. I don't think you can go to court over a trainer though... lol I'd like to see that happen: "You cheated in our game, your save file is invalid!" Oh that would be awesome, not for the guy of course but for the hilariousness of the situation. Naw, I might even laugh if I got charged with unauthorized use of a trainer. That just sounds funny.

I read GeoHots list of achievements and I have to say, he is very intelligent and I have respect for his skill, but why not use it to work against the pirate industry?
Because that's not how you become famous and loved by freeloaders, you just become hated by them.

It's actually not about the freeloaders, he's getting his name out. I guarantee he'll have a better job than any of us in the end. Did anyone here get the best quote/theme from the movie about Facebook? The guy who created napster, Sean Parker? The whole idea about it doesn't matter how you get your name out, as long as everybody on this earth knows about it you have a life to live. What's a good way to do that? Freaking hack the PS3, let people know you hacked it, let Sony know. Either you'll get a cookie or put at the end of a shotgun, either way your going to be rich when you die.

Good job!
I was talking about morality not truth...often morality is confused with prudency.
Me twisting the truth?!
Come on, I expect more open mindness from a mod of a forum as large as this!

Like a licence agreement when you install? Yeah, like every single bit of software you install. Who ever forces someone to buy a product? If you don't agree to the terms yu don't buy the product.

I read GeoHots list of achievements and I have to say, he is very intelligent and I have respect for his skill, but why not use it to work against the pirate industry?
probably becuz he's immature and still in his " fight the man" phase.

You do know that his jailbreak for IOS got the ******* millennium act modified right? So you can NOW freely modify phone OS's legally. Now that is worthy of donation. LONG LIVE XDA DEVELOPERS!

Mmmmm actually, the PS3's terms of agreement are certainly on many Sony pages and are very easy to find. If you disagree with them, don't buy a PS3. In addition, when you sign up for a PSN account, you agree to a totally different agreement, being for the use of PSN.

I completely agree with the MOBILE PHONE jailbreak exemption, and it doesn't even benefit me as I use Android and can install any third party app I please thanks to Android being open source. I completely DISAGREE with the PS3 "jailbreak" (it's not a jailbreak) and it DOES benefit me because I can pirate apps. I still lol so hard when I see so many people defending this. You folks are so blind at the differences between jailbreaking a measly phone and tearing up the security encryption of a PS3. The strongest argument everyone had against Apple's defense is that the iPhone was locked to only one carrier, which "we" (Apple sheep) should not be forced to be on as that is monopolistic. We should have the ability to unlock the phone to be activated with any carrier we please, especially if the phone is sold unsubsidized. The PS3 isn't the same situation AT ALL. You can use any valid qualified internet provider to use the PS3's online capabilities.

That being said, the iOS jailbreak exemption needs to be reviewed and re-approved every 3 years. Don't be too comfortable that Geo succeeded; the exemption isn't permanent.

Does anyone here think its fair that I pay for a game that someone else doesn't have to now?

Does anyone here think its fair that I play online with people who can now use the assistance of aimbots, wallhacks, or any type of exploit in any games?

Is it fair that Geohot violated the EULA/ToS that Sony has without any form of repercussion?

Some think this is fair because certain users can now install Homebrew? Or get back OtherOS (originally lost due to the L2 Cell exploit) feature in some earlier models of the PS3 units?

This is not fair to any paying consumer, publisher, developer, or Sony themselves. The primary reason people play a particular title online via console and not a PC is so they don't have to deal with cheaters, and now we are losing this feature, console by console.

A jailbroken iPhone doesn't interfere with the call quality and use of other peoples phones, but an aimbotter does interfere with my gaming quality on a PS3.
