Temporary Restraining Order Issued in Sony vs. Geohot via Engadget. This means three things 1) The GetHot team cannot link to, distribute or really do anything with the jailbreak code while the case continues. And 2) Sony wants all the computers and tools used to hack the PS3. And 3) All this is really going to do is encourage everyone to share the code like the DeCSS days. In fact, a Research Professor of Computer Science Carnegie Mellon University already has.

Mirror of GeoHot’s PS3 Jailbreak
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/GeoHot/

Jailbreaking is already legal in the USA, this seems like a waste of time and money for Sony to pursue and it’s likely only going to get worse for them. Sometimes I think Sony sits around and thinks of new ways to damage their company with their biggest fans. The Magic Gate Memory Stick Duo Pro Plus Sony, c’mon! Now this?

    The CMU mirror has been taken down.

    Seems the only way to stay safe is to stay anonymous.

    “Jailbreaking is already legal in the USA”

    This is incorrect. Jailbreaking phones is allowed, but jailbreaking other devices (while it makes legal sense that it should be extended to other devices) were not expressly permitted, and thus are still in a gray area, sadly.

    p.s. please hurry with the move away form movable type. every time I try to leave a comment, it says I’m logged in on the article, but when I click submit it tells me I’m not logged in. every time, without fail.

      I was going to say the same thing about jailbreaking. Unfortunately we wont see anything about consoles brought up for another couple years (they only bring disputes up every three years I believe)

      As for the comment system, yeah. Seriously the worst comment system I have ever used. I love comments on websites like slashdot. I am always shocked to see a couple hundred people liking it or tweeting it, and have zero comments. I don’t think it has much to do with the fact that people don’t comment on your site, but that its really hard to do so.
