its not just the japs its probably just the north american branch that did it the japanese probably would have hired geohot where as the NA branch took him to court
Well i said this a few times before, and i knew this would happen sooner or later, i think we all saw this coming, removing a advertise feature from a product sometimes backslashes, and i guess in Sony's case it just did and did it hard , but wow the irony.
Finally, im also interested to see if sony used any open source code in their firmwares, i mean after all isnt linux open source? did they violate by not distributing the linux source code that they used in their otheros?
i did not have a ps3 with linux so i have no real idea how other os worked. except it allowed linux.
Howard Stringer, an American, is president and CEO of Sony.
This case has been going on for almost a year, hasn't it? Why hasn't been a judgment yet? Either way, Sony is wrong. How can you accuse someone of the same thing you are doing? WHERE ARE THE FANBOYS AT??!!! I'm surprised a certain someone hasn't went ahead and defend Sony after getting butt plugged by them.
Finally! Sony can have a taste of their medecine.
The XMB had the option Other OS in the settings where you could install Linux in a seperate partition.

PS3 slim owners are of course ****ed in that regard.
well what i dont understand is since they say if you wanted to keep it you shouldnt have updated then why do they make it where you cannot downgrade you can only upgrade what if someone else did it while using your system or you didnt know since im sure that it didnt say in the upgrade txt hey listen we are taking out otherOS feature so if you upgrade you lose otherOS but get psn. and if they left you that option and let you backtrack to whatever fw you wanted then we could just be like ok fine if we want otherOS then we have to use old FW but guess what since i bought mine and it came with 3.4 how can i use otherOS and how can i downgrade to a FW that supports it i bought a ps3 slim not knowing that otherOS was even taken out until i go tit and started to research because i knwo that you could install linux on ps3 then i found out oh well they removed that part and im like WTF is that shit
here turkish turkish....i got your scooby snack for you!!!
