Also, do people really think Sony can just put out an Firmware in such a small time? ofcourse not, they first have to come up with a solution, then test it with a lot of revisions, and also with different devices.. Also it is possible for them to already check if you had run the hack, so they can block your PS3 and your PSN-accounts which are linked to your PS3 after a while.
I'll just wait for a while and continue with FW 3.15 and OtherOS and see what the future brings, before trying any USB-hack..
little concerned, modchip central and canadamods have removed the psjailbreak from their sites.
hope my order is still good to go...
if not i hope at least a refund.
Isnt this basically the same thing they ruled in favor of about a month ago with apple? They have no legal right to go after someone for using the console the way they want.
[email protected] off. They did however try to sell me a newer discontinued model for full retail price after telling me it was a special deal lol. Unbelievable. I HATE the way they operate and treat customers, and I'm all for any way to screw them over.
Seems modchipcentral remove psj from its product line too...
This is the only thing I like about Microsoft, they don't sue.
They just ban lol.
Also interesting, the first post says "While not specifically mentioned in the court documents ... has been attempting to sell the new PS3 Jailbreak modchip, which allows users to circumvent the PlayStation 3's copy protection"
Because of the iPhone jb decision, suing for a jb i.e. being able run unsigned code isn't legal, so Sony can't argue on those grounds, instead they are trying to go for intent i.e they WILL copy our games. Good luck trying to prove that though.
An update, to quote from: http://psx-scene.com/forums/799596-post1.html
SCEA is submitting its own statement since none of the defendants have appeared in this action.
The Court has entered a Preliminary Injunction. Since that time, counsel for SCEA has conducted extensive third party discovery and has been engaged in settlement discussions with certain of the defendants. Thus far, defendants Tom Nooker, individually and doing business as buyps3jailbreak and Thanh Nguyen, individually and doing business as USATechCity, Ltd. have entered into settlement agreements with SCEA and have agreed to entry of consent judgments and permanent injunctions. SCEA will be filing those documents with the Court shortly. SCEA is currently awaiting responses from the other defendants regarding settlement.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that in the event that Defendant violates this Judgment or assists others to do so, Defendant shall pay to SCEA $5,000 as liquidated damages per violation of this Judgment no later than forty-five (45) days from the date on which SCEA notifies Defendant of the violation.
Such liquidated damages shall be an optional alternative to demonstrating actual damages. This optional alternative may be elected in SCEA's sole discretion. Both liquidated damages and actual damages are supplemental to obtaining equitable relief to which SCEA may be entitled as a result of Defendant's violation.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that this Court shall retain jurisdiction for the purpose of making any further orders necessary or proper for the construction or modification of this Judgment or the Settlement Agreement and Release, the enforcement thereof, or the punishment of any violations thereof.
The latest court documents in their entirety are attached for further reading.
A hearing date has been set for April 21st, which makes one wonder if Sony has finally managed to track down the individual(s) behind Zoomba and PS Jailbreak.
