Geohot has appeared live on AOTS (Attack of the Show) yesterday where he had talked about the lawsuit that had been filed against him by Sony on jailbreaking and disclosing the security codes for the PS3 console along with the fail0verflow team.
He made it very clear regarding his jailbreak that it only enabled homebrew and yet did not allow piracy to run on the console. When asked “what exactly the issue is, what are you being sued for here?”. He had firmly replied, “For making Sony mad”.
Just a reminder, Geohot was the first person in the world to jailbreak the Apple iPhone. He had recently released his jailbreak tool back in October named Limera1n for iOS 4.1 and above. And is rumored to be currently working on another iOS jailbreak tool named Rubyra1n.
