iPhone hacker publishes secret Sony PlayStation 3 key
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12116051The group, which has previously hacked Nintendo's Wii and says it is vehemently against games piracy, said that it had developed the hack so that it could install other operating systems and community-written software - known as homebrew - on the powerful machine.
"The details we provided and information and techniques we disclosed would have been enough to install Linux," he said. "We have no interest in piracy."
Sony sues PlayStation 3 root key hackers
http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/gener...ot-key-hackersSony decided that enough was enough and resorted to using its lawyers bringing a court case against Hotz and more than 100 other hackers. In its case, Sony asks for an injunction against the defendants, asking that they be prevented from further hacking, distributing any software using the root key. Sony has also asked for all hardware involved in the hack to be destroyed.
In the meantime, Sony has said that it can fix the problem with updates to the console, although Fail0verflow says that this is impossible without new hardware, because changing the root key on older consoles would prevent legitimate software from working. Time will tell.
Sony will also nicht wahrhaben das man Ihre Hardware "Usertauglicher" machen kann, sprich das Kids mal neben der zockerei, Linux auf derer Zockconsole installieren könnten!
Ich finde es wird Zeit das die Verantwortlichen SONY Chefs/Mitarbeiter Ihre Posten räumen
