- Today George Hotz aka GeoHot
has announced he is retiring from Sony PS3 and Apple iPhone hacking, citing that the demand for updates from end-users will never stop.
In his exit from the PS3 scene, GeoHot left many legitimate PlayStation 3 users without OtherOS
and without the promised 3.21OO PS3 Custom Firmware
The good news? Others
whom GeoHot shared the PS3 METLDR info and LV2 dump with are currently using his work to continue hacking the PS3 console, with rumors from IRC (for what those are worth LOL) indicating a public "end-user" PS3 hack may arrive before September 2010 from their camp.
Unfortunately though, just like the past Dark_AleX
and "M33" PSP releases, an incoming PS3 hack will probably be from a fictitious group and won't include anything useful to PS3 Devs such as dumps, reversals, sourcecode, etc.
Hopefully once a hole that Sony can't block is public, other PlayStation 3 Devs will begin working on the PS3 though... and sharing all the juicy...
