Legal Defense Fund

Donations here are for legal defense ONLY
I checked with my lawyers before setting this up

(donations were big success, see this)

Wow, I'm impressed with the response, thanks so much!
Now I'm confident they won't win the win this war via attrition :-)
I will discuss transparency of legal bills with my lawyers.

Yeah. I think this should be easy if everyone donated at least 1$. 100k people donating 1$ shouldnt be hard, and 1$ doesnt make you poor. It's just the number of people that donates that counts. Support this cause, why sue people who did nothing harmful to other people and let free people who kill, abuse childs, and stuff like that?

0 $ from me because:

1. You are the Julian Assange of hackers who cares too much for press attention

2. Because of you the SHAtter bootrom hack was blown (reason probably 1.)

3. You didn't hack the PS3 this time, fail0verflow did but you were just carelss enough to post stuff on your page (reason probably 1.)

In the end you brought yourself in that situation, now stop crying for help and get out of it again... alone!!

Regardless of what you say, Sony is still being babies about the whole things and they are mainly brining things out and blowing them out of proportion. They should have never taken away Other OS. I'll donate as much as I can yo. Keep it up yo, I'm sure you'll do well. People don't seem to see that this whole things is about more than "hacks" and "piracy". Sony is trying to control everything you do w/ a console yo spent your money on.

Hi i want to donate some money but i having troubles with paypal at the moment. As soon as paypal works for me again you gonna get some money from sweden to support you George :=). I support this because i still wanna own the ps3 i did buy and do what ever i want with it and not to accept that sony owns a ps3 in my house that they can controll and spy on me. And i havent got the new tos yet but when i do i will not accept it.

Geohot, im going to write a new petition to address our freedoms when it comes to the exemptions of circumvention placed in the DMCA and why they protect us and benefit a competitive market. You will be stuck in the california courts for years regarding an issue that can be addressed right now by consulting the anti trust department of justice or congress. We need to get a petition spread that will inform people why our cause is so important to everyone and send it to congress. You will end up having to appeal over and over again, and sony has deep pockets. This is a battle you can not financially afford without the support of the nation. If you are interested in helping me with this, you can contact me through my email to give me a way to talk directly to you. I have already written a petition that is gaining support to the cause. But its ps3 specific, more of a rant, and certain legal discoveries have brought to my attention about a whole new legal approach to this. We need to organize, and gain supporters! This is how i will donate to the cause.

Screw Sony >=[


1) Do you work for sony?
2) SHAtter wouldnt have worked on anything less that the fourth generation and therefore would be useless to let it be known to apple. Limera1n works on all devices so far. Geohot gave us sumthing thats better than SHAtter so screw you too.
3) So what if he posted something on a blog? Does sony have the right for a certain combination of letters and numbers? thats pathetic

Sony, I know you're reading this. You've lost your minds. This is not Japan. You can't do whatever the hell you want and think people will be fine with it because you have more $ or Legal defense.

This is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...and you've pissed us off.

I am not for piracy. I am FIRMLY against it. I am for my freedoms. I am for my liberties. My grandfather was a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Signal Corp. He put his sweat and blood into decrypting things so that we could have our freedoms.

We will continue to do the same.

Let me make a suggestion. DEV-TEAM is telling us lies about the unlock of 4.1 baseband. Release one (matter of days for your brilliant mind) and many people, including myself, WILL donate. Your words were "as long as they lock the baseband, I will unlock it". AND YOU QUIT. Release an unlock and I will donate 50 euros. READ IT.

"Sony is lame, and is suing me for hacking MY OWN PS3" You released the code to do it.
"My PS3 goal has been to provide users a legitimate path to homebrew" yea, you did that, and people used it for evil.
"I had no idea this would happen, and am in full support of the cheaters being permabanned from PSN" So you thought, doing homebrew can only be used for good! Nothing bad can come out!
"I'm a poor college student, what can I do to help?" Well seeing how CFW users can steal other CFW credit card info, why not just steal some credit card numbers?

You really jacked up the whole online experience for some games and it's only going to get worse. Way to go. This is why we can't have nice things, cause of fuckers like you. So what good have you done with this homebrew?

Blogger iosmodifier said...

sorry for this long comment george, but it is needed for all to see.

adapted from

this post is dedicated to any geohot haters. leave geohot alone. if you don't like him, then you don't like him, but please, keep your comments to yourself. he has never done anything to hurt you, only stuff to help. if it wasn't for him, your iPhone would have most likely never been unlocked. you probably would not even know what a unlock for the iPhone was. i see your comments on his blog posts, i see your comments on his videos. if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all.

i started a petition a few days ago, for people to sign if you believe sony was wrong, for starting a lawsuit against geohot. thanks to the 100+ who have signed it, but it looks like it has slowed down. this is because it is not being advertised anymore. if you wish to advertise it still, you know the link. i still believe in #freegeohot that i created and wish to keep it going. Sony, drop the lawsuit, you know your roll, stick to it and leave geohot alone. maybe give him a record deal?

i had more to say, but this pretty much sums it up in a short post.

remember, nothing is official from geohot, unless verified on

Blogger rogerdodger91 said...

sigh, people that think geohot ruined the ps3 online are sooooo naive.
1. Sony took away otherOS pissing off failOverflow, thats kinda is geohots fault but he had no idea they would take such a drastic step as that.

2. Failoverflow released the algorithm and the vulnerability. Anybody could have figured out the key codes, and i guarantee you there were probably people that already had them and were going to release. its just geohot released his first.

3. Sony fucked up their own systems security, and were cocky about how they couldnt be hacked. Ooooooops.

4. If we didnt hack the ps3, we wouldnt know that our credit info is exposed.
But who cares about your credit info when your k/d ratio is at stake right? because we all know thats how you going to pull some bitches. lol ice-t

Geohot, just some advise, empty your paypal account into your bank account regularly. Sony will ask paypal to freeze your account and paypal will do it.

By the way, do you have a way to get in touch with you. I would love to do an interview with you for a site I write for.

And, just so you know, when you win this suit (not if, because we all know Sony isn't going to win this), you might want to sue some of the sites that don't police their comments that call for your death and pillage. I bet you would be able to win THAT one....easily.

If this is not about personal legal trouble, then come back to jailbreak and unlock scene for Apple products. If you talk about our rights to hack, unlock, smash, burn, brick, or anything else what we want to do for something we own, you should ask GeoHot's fans of iPhone scene as well. This is not only about Sony, but also Apple stuff, etc. is still closed anyway...

Re-open your iPhone's blog and post something new and worth it, I will help you to spread the word on my iPhone blog, too.

i hope you lose and go so far into debt that you can't pay for shit you did ruin online play for many people cause you release the codes why you did that cause your a media whore.

This isn’t about Sony trying to bully him. They’re trying to protect their investment and of course he’s the fall guy. He’s getting what he deserves for being such an attention whore, if you want to hack things, great, more power to you. But it’s a risky game, especially when you mess with companies that have more coin than Scrooge McDuck.The moral here is, if you’re going to be a hacker, be anonymous. Don’t try to be a celebrity because you might become an example. Geohot is that example; Sony is going to ruin him. Everyone knows this except him, he should have kept playing with iPhones.

Here goes...Please read this for what it is. I'm normally a low-key kind of guy. That is what you should have been, you are a genius for god sakes. I think where you got into trouble is all of the threads like this, created by the same people that contributed in your getting caught and being so open about your exploits. Your mind is a gift that was givin' you. I know you have a right to do whatever you want with it. I am personally glad you hooked us all up and shared the knowledge but after apple you kind of built up a imaginary bulletproof vest in your head. Things like twitter came along and made it easier for you to network but at a price. Anyone can see what you post. Making that Rap video was just the wrong thing to do. If you get out of this mess, I'll still continue to follow you because...well... "I ain't no saint." Just as a suggestion, lose the media tie and go underground and use anonymous outlets to push your work.

Well piracy exists and will not disappear... Besides the things said and done, people worldwide continues to buy the products because someone figured out how to jailbreak the ps3 or an iPhone and both Apple and Sony sells tons of iphones iPads ps3 ps2 psp bad for business maybe but not totally cos several hackers when discovered are employed by them to find future security breach ... I believe that if steve jobs wanted to block iphones jailbreaked worldwide when everytime someone connects to iTunes lot of iPhone users started to cry wolf they tolerate it cos depends from us to buy their products.

I agree with your fight against sony on the ps3 issue and if you had no way to get funds this would be a great way to raise them. But you have in your hands the power to raise all the money you need to fight this and then some. what am I talking about ? Simple release unlock for baseband 02.10.04 at $ 5.00 a pop. Thats right you have had people sweeting ( me included ) the release of this unlock since october. Read the Blogs and comments people have been putting out there about this release. People are pissed, and they beg you to release. If you really cared about the people who are affected by this then you would do what ever you had too to raise the money you need even if it ment the release of an unlock earllyer than you wanted too!!!!! I for one, and I’m sure meny others would be more than willing to give up the $ 5, $10 buck for the unlock insted of getting our dorks pulled about the possible release of this unlock in the future. Me personaly I would be embarrassed asking for donations knowing that I had the means to raise the money I needed to fight this. There’s no shame in getting paid for the work that you do even if your a hacker. I know that there are a lot of people out there who would agree with me. And I sure you’ll be hearing from these people in the near furture about this issue. How can you expect people to help you know when you have been leading them on about the release of the unlock for baseband 02.10.04 ????? This is food for thought

I thought of you George Hotz how you can win your case against Sony would look
If you remember on ps2 that came out of spring JB sandwich games downloaded from the Internet is the first argument you can present to the "Sony" Until now Sony is not dealt with this issue for what? Still continue to leave games for PS2 and still people bring the games to the Internet Madoasona not take a position here?
Here comes my answer: (I guess) Sony is not taking ways to prevent it because she wants to stop the production of games for PS2 and people will buy the PS3 and it will have a lot of money (we are talking about billions of millions of dollars)
So this is a pretty good argument not like that?:) Now about the donations I have an idea how you can make money I can insert advertisements in popular sites to add the advertisements would be glad to donate the money you earn is acceptable to you? Do you agree? If you answered yes please email me so I can work for you

In my eyes, this tells me that Sony truly is a buggy, overpriced box. I've been saving for the last 5 months to purchase the ps3 but after watching sony's actions pertaining to this case, I'm no longer going to purchase there product. I'll just buy xbox instead of sony products. I'll donate more cash when possible. Thank you.

For your information mr v I have donated geo 50 euros when the unlock for my 3gs was out. I thought it was better for everyone that instead of paying apple 50 euros more for a factory unlocked iphone, I would donate the money to the genious GEOHOT, who promised to release an unlock on every locked firmware. A year later, and as soon as the 3.1.3 unlock was out(4 months delay), I sold the 3gs and now I have a factory unlocked one. Remember that 370z, the porche and the expensive house geo bought with his well earned donations from us. And now he has to earn his allowance with the unlock. All of you waiting for the unlock, go ahead and donate him and as soon as a new device comes out, geo will leave you hanging with your ps3 because he will move on to the new console.For the jackass comment,I am from Cyprus and in Cyprus we have the largest kind of jackasses in the world (fact). But I prefer being a jackass than a sucker like you. Give him money....yeeeeei. lol.And ask anyone this 'someone I dont know is going to court, If you give him money to win what animal are you?' You will get your answer.
IN CONCLUSION. I am a fan of Geo. His programs are the best. EARN your money for gods sakes.
