Yeah dude with out you the scene is pretty much quiet...
Mathieulh and Kakarotoks are not telling anything because they are scared. And other people have no clue how to run code on 3.60... anyways f that

I hope you are holding well against that bitch ass Sony...

so.. what does this blog post really mean ?
I don't see their blog being defaced not your blog being censored as far as I can tell.

@kalaba: before accusing someone of something, get your facts straights. Also, having geohot back in the scene doesn't mean that it will be any more active either.

Without you on the scene, the "dev-team" has run out of solutions and are fucking around. No iPhone 4 unlock, no iPad 2 jailbreak, no any kind of downgrade, NOTHING! Probably we'll never get another genius like you. Thanks for all what you did for us and I hope I can pay you back some way in case you need it.

the difference being the info Julian Assange released put peoples lives in danger, when you have a brother in harms way then let me know how you feel about him, beyond that George I love ya man! Just wished you posted more often, look forward to reading your thoughts.

Its just a good quote for the situation - he quoted Hubbard early on if I remember correctly.

I am a bit confused as to what he's referring to though?

@Kakarotoks I mean, I don't know if u are just bored or scared? But the real truth is if you weren't scared a little by what is happening to geohot you would have released what you had with tons of people who need it... I myself am not whining for it, or updated it myself, I bought it like that... So you and Math who is a little bit ignorant in his behavior should not flame people for things like that... Because obviously there is only a couple of people in the world who can do this...I myself would like to start to learn about their security architecture but dunno where to start and what to look for, so if someone can point me into right direction, thanks...

And btw I don't mean anything bad Kakarotoks, thank you for what you've done... But right now people need 3.60...

And @geohot beat the fearmongerers... When is the end of this trial? I know you will win... We are all backing you, thousands of your fans... But I'm wondering since I'm a psychologist how does this affect you? How do you feel does it scare you a lot?

Geohot got paid a billion dollars to leave the apple scene

i dont think its about what he did or didnt do for the scene. he's a human who has had his rights infringed on. he thought he was doing everything legally and went out of his way to try his best to stay legitimate and this is his reward.

What does the injunction mean exactly? that you cant post anything else about the workings of the ps3's security stuff?

Am supprised you settled for that, what happened to our rights? lol

Maybe id have done the same, i dunno, weird situation to be in i guess..

but like your quote suggests they must have been a little worried or unhappy with all the negative press to change there tune

Anyways, all the best from the uk

@sixteen64 The terms of the settlement agreement are "confidential" and the matter requires that they be "confidential".

Your rights and my rights are two very different things.

"Your rights and my rights are two very different things"

yes, you have just lost a load after signing that settlement

That quote would be true except Sony is protecting its intellectual property. It's not censorship, it's preventing people from stealing. Great quote, just doesn't apply here.

Oh that's right, I forgot that free speech doesn't apply when piracy is involved.

I feel you, man. Pity it turned out to be such a crappy day. Had high hopes for it. I take it you're leaving Sony scene for good?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. What happened to fighting for EVERYONES rights. Your rights and my rights are constitutionally the same, and should be fought for in the same manner. I was under the impression, that you and ANON were fighting for OUR rights. What happened to that "screw the man" attitude? Hmmm...

I blame Anonymous for getting you in hot water with Sony.

They were probably drooling at the opportunity to pin some collateral damage on your jailbreak.

Free speech applies when Geohotz is robbed the same way but hey he has an excuse for that lmao.

As a post script on a less noisy post, I mean it about the beer. Columbus Brewing Company does a great artichoke dip, too. And bread pudding.
