This case is being influenced by outside of the court room politics..the federal government is now more active in dmca issues...if not this case would've been thrown out long ago..Sony does not have a leg to stand on 3.41 from geohot was and still is one of the hardest installs to use to install anything but emulators or homebrew..outside of that across all forums all I see is questions about how to install b.m.'s and no fixes so he did them a huge favor because those people could've easily done any of the other mods and would've just stopped buying games altogether. Now i'm not sure if anyone sees the timeline of this case...tuesday psn goes dark on dns and here we are thursday and seize records. Now as someone stated if geo was crazy enough to not have masked his contacts with alias names sony is in prime position to go after whomever circumvents 3.56 or even 3.56 when that comes about. I guess this is why wanin/kmeaw and nobody else has posted one single piece of information dating back to 11 days. I'm seriously thinking of just backing up my modded drive and going onto ofw 3.56 for the time being.
Totally Agree With You

Plus he could of said i don't have any hard drive as i used a live linux distribution that runs off of a cd lol. No trace then as once you reboot all info from memory is gone.
I hope he goes to jail:o
Actually Piracy does very little to hurt the industry specially consoles and heres why
I understand Sony's wish to keep pirates off their machine. Fair enough. Piracy severely damages the industry, and there are plenty of families reliant on their jobs in the games/hardware/retail industry.
Most people dont know how to install a CFW and a BM, now out of those that do know will either download the games, Hire them or borrow from a friend
-Downloaded games most pirates will download anything have a look at it then never go back to it.. in most cases they would never have even thought about buying that game (sony didnt loose a sale here as they wouldnt have bought it in most cases - some are lost but its still a very small percentage.. much less then the over priced games in the first place cover for such piracy)
- Hired games - the copy has been bought 1 time .. only people that are going to miss money here are the video shops from rehires from the same person (but in the end probably make more money from people hiring more games they wouldnt have now they can be backed up)
- Borrowed from a friend.. same deal here 1 copy bought but instead now yer mate can have his original back quicker
- Buy and return method.. once agin sony gets the 1 sale then EB games makes the money back from selling pre-owned
The main reason Sony would be going about it this way is because developers would pay a premium to Sony to cover copy protection makes developing games quicker and in some cases probably cheaper (many protection systems have very hefty licensing fee's)
now Sony would have a legal obligation to the developers to make sure the system is secure from piracy
the other reason is for online gaming hacks if the system is secure you dont need to develop Anti cheat within the game itself.. (again making it quicker and cheaper to develop)
I see GeoHot being an extremely rich individual in under 5 years..i'm sure he's already gotten tons of solicitations about software and hardware security plus he's been working on that brain thing of his that has already been awarded several times...Like him and his ego or not he's a smart dude. I'd pay anything to be in that room when sony scans his drives and finds nothing but jpegs of middle fingers with the words F.T.W under it.
hey **** U BRO, I don't even know what the hell you are still in this site if you don't like hacking and hombew....u should get kicked of this site.....ass

dude you are missing the point there are softwares available that can wipe the whole HDD and data in it can never be retrieved. if geohot is smart enough to hack ps3 he is smart enough to wipe all sensitive info and keep just the jailbreak code..... that wont make sony suspicious at all... dont be dumb
