If he wanted to use his PS3 to the fullest potential fine. Either write your own software or don't tell the world that your engaging in stealing Sony's intellectual property. Also he should be smart enough to know that this would lead to piracy and bad online play due to hackers. Which Sony can't ignore because of pressure from publishers to have a secure platform.
Your pretty lost in the whole situation. His argument from the beggining has always been the same.
-He found out how to load homebrew on linux when it was available. He knew how to backup games to the hdd, but stated he does not pirate or condone it.
-Sony locked down the system by removing other OS.
-He vowed to figure it out, because that was a feature he PAID for when he bought his ps3.
-Since then Sony has been on him, like flies on ****.
-Every move he has made Sony puts out a "security" update within 1-2 weeks.
-He discovered "the code"(lol), and released it.
-Hackers did other things with it, he just released it.
Which I see as fair. Sony made a big deal about the other OS and released my system with it, then takes it away?
Thats like buying a car with auto-park or GPS then the manufacture just removes it one day. BS.
I love sony products, but they are being douche bags.
FYI: GH kept an open offer for Sony to hire him on and he would help with the security of their system. He had that offer since the beggining and kept it even after the "war" started.
