Could Sony have placed an injuction/court order on the makers of PSJB thus the reason behind the delays? Push the delivery date back a week and it goes past the August deadline on the Aussie injuction and maybe the PSJB injunction. Just theorising here though
I preordered via ozmods but havent got any email about a refund.. wtf?
The refund email is not from OzMods. That's from ModSupplier. No word yet on what OzMod and other Australian retailers will be doing.
Check this out:
Not only do they have to cease selling them but they have to hand over all stock to Sony or the courts!
4. ORDERS that the First to Fourth Respondents and each of them deliver up to the solicitors for the Applicants, to be held up to and including 31 August 2010, any and all PSJailbreak Devices in those Respondents’ possession custody or control.
Ah! apologies for the confusion, I've amended the original post...

Shi*! That's really bad news. Especially for OzModchips - the first one who get the whole thing started. Hopefully they are not forced to submit the names of the PSjailbreak costumers. I remember that was the case when a german modchip shop had to do with Sony, back in the PS2 era.
31st August..so 3 days? :O
It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.
That includes the one ozmodchips used to make the youtube video.

If it were me I'd say it was sold on before the injunction kicked in, but then they'd ask for the details of who it was sold to.
lmao, I'm glad I didn't go rushing to pre-order this device, sucks for those who did though (should get your money back if it goes in Sony's favour).
Updates on this topic:
Update #3: According to Inaudax on IRC, Ozmodchips has just cancelled all of their PSJailBreak pre-orders and is refunding their customers money back.
Update #2: According to court documents from the Federal Court of Australia File #VID727/2010 Ozmodchips Pty Ltd & Ors is also involved in the IP claim by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited & Anor with a hearing scheduled for August 31, 2010.
Update: Australian reseller Quantronics has removed the notice (outlined below) from their PS JailBreak PS3 modchip page, and has now changed the item's status to "no stock" to comply with the court order.

It was a good thing to announce the PSJB before it actual was available you could see this coming...
So goodbye preorder
It's status changed to "Sold Out" on the Ozmod website.
