Thanks to Corf for the news, you can continue discussion on this in the thread here :)
We should raise money for this guy and get him out of JAIL!
What is wrong with modchips? why are they illegal?
What is sony going to do? what are they doing?
What is Microsoft doing? what will they do?
Will modchips die soon? forever? whats your opinion on this?
**** them and anyone who looks like them I say we all fight for this as it is America and we do have the right to do whatever we want to our own personal things that we own. So nextime I throw a controller at the ground and it breaks into small pieces then They will come "take me away" as I broke one of s@ny's products. I think Isonewz got shut down because of there games/chips/warez if they only had chips then I think it would have been diff
Just my thoughts
Did you red the article Krawl420?
He was arrested for selling Xbox modchips.Quote:
pleaded guilty to breaching the DMCA by selling illegal copyright circumvention devices last December.
I think in the future we will see more modchips being sold totally blank, this way, they could be sold as like, like switches and stuff. There's always a loophole. I had an idea for a totaly flashable modchip, but it could only be flashed when a jumper was put into position. This way, they could not make software to erase the flashable data.
thats what it says but I think the combined three software/hardware/nfo's on realeses Is what made them target iso newz in the first place
Regardless of why they targetted the site, he was arrested for selling chips, so even if all he did was sell was chips they still could have arrested him though they might not have gone for him like this
I hope for him that he'll not drop his soap ^__^ anyway, 5 month is better than 5 years! anyway, I hope he has a lot of patience!!
A little K-Y does wonders :p
easybuy is right on the banner why not get it also ;)
