[GEOHOT] coming to the end

It seems, Sony has finally decided to fight back and its the only way they know how...legally! Today, they have filed lawsuits against George Hotz (geohot) and members of fail0verflow! Geohot has updated his site with several court documents which were issued to him today by Sony's legal goons. He has also removed any and all PS3 hacking tools and keys. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out! Stay tuned for more updates.


Update: This isn't technically a lawsuit against geohot and company. It is actually a legal restraining order. Which, if approved, would force geohot and fail0verflow to hand over their PC's and related equipment, as well as force them to cease distributing tools and keys.

Sony has finally decided to play their poker hand today!

Their MIB (lawyers in black suits) have landed, and the target is of course Mr. George Hotz aka "geohot"!

Recently "Geohot" had published the PS3 'root key' on his website, along with various 'signing tools' and samples of possible ways to install and run 'homebrew'

It seems Sony has decided they have had enough of this, and as of Jan. 11, 2011 have filed a lawsuit against Mr. George Hotz, which will be filed under the court docket of 'C 11-00167 JCS'!
UPDATE: My Wikileaks Fax machine just finished dumping the finished E-filings for today by Sony, with the official Court Stamp and Signings, and included now is what SCEA wants to claim in damages and their reasons, and dates of when the info was released by Team Fail0verflow and Geohot and various other info like sharing of work via twitter, posting youtube videos, etc.
Geohot has updated his website with two court papers

As of 1/11/2011 7:20 PM EST, I have been served with papers, see below...

old front page, with relevant info removed, is here
"The new court files released by Geohot on his website, show that Sony is also going after the members of Team fail0verflow and are listed as named aka Bushing, Sven, Marcan as defendants!"

Tut mir leid für diese Ausdrücke ...
Aber, diese scheiß kleinen A.Löcher von Sony.
Jemand hat ihr System geknackt, angeklagt.
Und wieso?
Tss..hoffentlich wird die COM noch einfallsreicher in Sachen Homebrew :]
Nunja, ich werde mir das mal durchlesen.

Hallo liebe Apple Freunde, seit heute ist es "offiziell" : George Hotz (Geohot), einer der berühmtesten Entwickler des Jailbreaks kündigte auf seiner Facebook Seite den neuen Jailbreak für iOS 4.2.X und 4.3 an! Er wird auf den Namen rubyra1n hören und ist untethered, d.h der JB wird permanent sein. Auf den Unlock muss leider immernoch gewartet werden. Was haltet ihr davon?
