Hacker Demonstrates Homebrew on PS3

George "Geohot" Hotz releases a video showing homebrew software running on a jailbroken Ps3 using a modified version of Firmware 3.55.

Hotz, who is known as one of several hackers that cracked the iPhone’s security, decrypted "root key" for the PS3 and posted Online. While Holtz has no regrets about doing this, he has emphasized publicly that his hack is intended to enable homebrew software (and the use of Linux), and not for enabling piracy on the system.

Check out the video to the left.

    I would imagine sooner after that whole R4 mess. Even the possibility of someone ever pirating, even if the device was never intended for that, seems to get the lawyers drooling.

    If you know so much about console’s electronics, surely you can think of more legal ways to save time and money, yes?

    About as long as it’ll take for some dumbass pirate wannabe to make a video that says "Hey! Here’s how to play a bunch of free games!"

    As much as I know most people don’t want to admit it, homebrew = piracy.

    Why people want to do such things to their systems is beyond me.
