Could be something interesting coming for us PS3 owners. A program written by mathieulh has been released by a rogue developer.
In a nutshell, this should allow someone to get the Metldr key, which from what I understand, is what GeoHot never released.
I'm actually fairly saddened by this. Math (whatever his ego) is an extremely talented hacker and someone seems to have leaked the work without his consent. Then again I've been noticing that the PS3 scene seems to be particularly political, bitchy and driven by a really weird mix of competition and one-upmanship.
I suppose it all boils down to piracy, some people want to play with their tech, understand it and make it do interesting stuff while others - an increasing majority it seems these days - are simply concerned about video tutorials telling them how to let them download play free games.
Sad but then again what did you expect. This isn't exactly something civil and legal to begin with. He is very good at what he does, you cannot trust anyone especially in scenes. I bet sony is "lol" how do you like it when your stuff is leaked. karma...
yea but honestly i buy more games because of piracy. Piracy exposes me to games that I never would of even tried. I end up liking them a lot so I buy them. If it wasn't for piracy game developers would make less money off me.
I always thought the idea of forums like this was to enable people to learn, it just seems that as methods of "unlocking" consoles have become more mainstream that there's less interest in learning and more demand for ever easier ways of bypassing security. The problem with this is - to quote a user on another forum I frequent - "design a foolproof method and someone will design a better fool".
In fairness this particular forum is pretty good, the signal to noise ratio is fair and the regulars are a decent crowd. Guess I'm just bitter and cynical
very old news !!! certainly not n00b friendly. my ps3 is a coaster by the way .... " the piracy issue" i have 5 members in my family and we all like the same artist does this means i have to buy the same cd 5 times? HELL NO we're gonna share it.am I a pirate? its up to you! sharing is caring

you dont get the point! but here it is .The BIG corporations and their minions consider the regular consumer a pirate if they share or just simply back up their license content with anybody even my own household . here's an example i bought a computer from a big corporation with bluray burner included i know there's software out there to make my self a back up of my efing licensed product. there IM an Efing pirate. so all these spoiled kids saying i buy more beacuse being xposed to piracy adds fuel to these corporations going after hard earned folks that like to back up their investements...... so i have 3 kids they like the same singer does this mean i have to make 3 purchases of the same cd? thats what the big corporations are saying.... Aholes
ps3 scene is dead, wrong secction!
