Because hacking a sophisticated device like the PS3 is not like riding a bike.

I don't see some 15 yo kid having that knowledge to be honest (or the boy is a genius, but he would be occupied with something much more important than hacking a video game console in my opinion).
Most of the hackers in the scenes are usually peoples with noble intentions who have spare time, and use that time to share with others and make some stuff free.
They are usually talented peoples (sometimes work for big companies) and know what they're doing (they don't do drama, nor make crappy releases, some of them don't even stamp their names on it, wanna remain in the dark, and just release it).
This is how you recognize real hackers, meaning, peoples who actually know what they're doing, and wannabe's, who manipulate themes and a few lines of codes and call themselves "hackers".
I find this pretty pathetic, but well, just my opinion.
I'm gonna download that FW maker, spawn some 3.55 with some nice shinny colors and rename it "CS super kickass CFW" and release it. Then i can call myself a hacker.
And no one will be bitching with my release, super ninjas will defend it saying it's a good addition to the scene and it's making things advance ... LOL.
Sometimes i'm shocked, seeing how peoples can be naive.
Cant people just be happy for what they have? You have to buy a few new games and maybe a new console so what? The stuff you bootleg is a small fragmant compared to the amount of money that you saved
haha this scene is so funny, I mean come on, you want people to share, but when they share you complain...
