True. But a smart man, a man like Geohot, is enough able to take a look around. "WTF is this trash here, do you want your console hacked in a few months? Improve immediately this trash PSN here. And close debug access immediately (this one is more recent but i bet Geohot saw it too). And hell, what is this FAT 60 with so many hardware holes?
Call me the hardware division and change immediately the structure here and here, so the SLIM model will be impossible to touch." That's how things was going to happen long ago, if Sony was smart..
Conspiracy theory? Uhm, not so impossible, looking what happened.
