You know, GeoHot hacked the console’s firmware to allow custom firmware to run allowing homebrew games and apps to kick in.
Sony updated their firmware to lock the system back and fix that problem And seizing Geohot’s stuff.
Apparently, KaKaRoToKS was able to crack the thing again but a custom firmware isn’t out yet because the lock-down keys aren’t statically stored like before, they’re randomly generated. And, as expected, Sony sent a DMCA compliance to KaKaRoToKS to take down their stuff.
I know what I’ll say is going to cause a flaming war and all, but I don’t really believe in opening up a console firmware for homebrew apps\games… If you want to make a homebrew stuff, you have a PC you can work on with free tools y’know… But hey that’s what I believe in, what do you think?
