i'm happy that failoverflow team and geohot did what was needed and im not interested if geohot or failoverflow release the codes, it only has to be done.
and with this release, geohot saved his place at one of the three big console developers (microsoft, nintendo,sony). and pray to god that he is not responsible for the security, because then you can be sure, there will be no piracy.
You don't wonder at all why he is showing up NOW when someone else has just done what he didn't? The guy was gone, someone hacks the ps3 further and he comes up trying to take some credit? If he hadn't post these things the fail0verflow guys would have and still might. He was not necessary unless he and mathieul are already part of the fail team...
Even if he is a member of the ps4/5 etc security team I am sure the system will still be hacked. Do you think the people who worked on it are idiots? that they haven't got the talent that geohot and others might have? You do and learn, they can learn from their mistakes this gen and improve without geohot. The hacks werent even real security holes but mistakes and leaks from sony.
As far as leaks go, if geohot isnt the leader of some secret ninja clan that will protect sonys stuff he can't help them. Doing things right instead of being sloppy is not something he can help them with either.
anyway, this means you won't need a jailbreak right? A loader, media player etc can run on any ps3 once they are signed?
think about it. the ps3 got hacked because of the initsiation of geohot. i don't want to say that he is the only one who would be able to initsiate, but he did.
and i would put my hands in fire, if a person like him, works for sony or microsoft or even nintendo. this console will be unbreakable. even if sony picks him up, they will improve the hypervision, upgrade the securitysystem, dont use "randomnumbers" for keys, and wolla, there will be more then 4years to try to hack the system.
i dont want to say that i dont like backup gaming, but if people like geohot work for sony or the other two. the systems will getting harder to hack.
