Well this may be disappointing news for many who were looking to Geohot to hack the PS3. Over the last few hours Geohot has announced his retirement from hacking. He posted on his Twitter
"it was a cool ride, and i've learned a lot about a lot. perhaps one of these days i'll do a more formal goodbye." You will find now that his PS3, iPhone blog and Twitter page or no longer accessible.
I guess we can thank him for the removal of Linux and then letting us hang out there to dry.
, Another Tweet before blog shutdown:
Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.
The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake
