He wasn't behind the jailbreak. It was a completely different entity or more like entities.

1) is an undetermined finite amount. He can't determine how long this will last. It could end tomorrow or it could end in 3 years.
2) Again undetermined finite amount. See 1)
3) Completely agree with this one, but he may not wanna publicize just how much as it could add more flame to the barrel for sony. If he's making tons for a legal fund sony could spin it to their advantage even though he has said he is giving excess to a charity afterwards.
You can't put a time stamp on a legal battle between an average joe (in terms of the grander scheme of things, no disrespect intended.) and a huge corporation with millions of dollars burning a hole in their pocket.
Well if your Sig is true then you should care who wins. As said before this is bigger than Geohot, we already know that sony can see your every move while your on your PS3. If they win this case it could be made so that any custom firmware is illegal and they can do what ever they want to your playstation remotely. They cannot do it now but who knows how low they will stoop if they win.

guess I am in the "ingrateful minority" here, but it just seems Geo's views on homebrew are in opposition to my own. I am not even talking about piracy, but I don't want "I'm also willing to accept a trade, a legit path to homebrew for knowledge of how to stop new firmwares from being decrypted.". since that would put the future of homebrew in Sony's hands, kind of defeating the point. All they have to do is play nice, let Geo help them patch security, then say "no homebrew anymore, and now you can't get past it. Kind of like the "netflix requiring PSN access to operate", I just have no faith in them, and the above statement pretty much reeks of selling out.
So do your thing Geo, but putting your trust in Sony to sudenly become reasonable and not locking out future homebrew opportunities, well, if that's what you want then do it on your own dime.
Here's $10 dollars to the cause. Good Luck Mr. Hotz.
But if it's put into a legal agreement and they violate it geohot could easily win the case in court if they were to be that stupid. I think it was merely an optimistic gesture. I doubt geohot really meant it in all honesty with how things are going. In other words it was a public voiced pipe dream.
