JFW-DH beta features Root Kit to BRICK your Playstation?
JFW-DH beta features Root Kit to BRICK your Playstation? –
I was reading up on the upcoming JFW-DH beta and the article says it can brick your console if you are not an actual beta tester.
I am really not happy about hearing this. Does this product contain a Root Kit? So what are they going to scan our every move via internet connection like Sony, then once found out you have their firmware they can give us a brick without knowing? If so I really want nothing to do with this custom firmware. They seem very sneaky right now. I cant think of another way they can brick you if you are not even connected to the internet. Maybe they have feature that links your mac address?
The beta test shall undertake not to publish the beta, and have a mechanism that anti leaks, this means that not only would find the informer, but you use it the users activate the safety mechanism to make them shiny bricks (Forewarned is a traitor)
I have a good feeling this is going to be a paid for custom firmware. I see in the future everyone trying to reverse this custom firmware. They are doing alot of work on it and seem to have built in anti leaking features so I feel this is going to be a for profit system? I just don't like the fact they have the power to brick consoles. That is ****ed up.
If this is going to a paid for custom firmware it better be at a good price. And even if, I am still weary they have any power over the Playstation I own.
Any thoughts? Boycotts?
doubt someone could get away with selling sce/modded fw.. and just dont use it if you suspect this.. i personally wait until small bugs are cleared up and everything is covered
Jailbreakscene is the worse site to read stuff on.
For the real truth see this post: JFW-DH Moves into BETA Tester Stage - Page 2
Besides it only in the BETA release, which noone should have except for a few dozen people, it designed to install on their machines only. -- It not a BRICKing system, just a closed BETA test to remove any remaining bugs, best to have a few dozen people test it and make sure it is perfect before millions go and install it and run into problems.
