I have to agree on the entitlement issue. If per say a developer in a group (there are lots of groups; you can't just slam them all for ones possible collective actions) does indeed know how to run un/self/signed code on it allowing for homebrew and copies to be played this person and/or group has ZERO obligation to share it with anyone. If they figured it out then the method they figured out is theirs and not yours even if it was built using open source and free information. If you build a house with lumber from a friend that gave it to you does that then mean he has a right to your house and to do what he pleases with it? No, that's just silly and so are these self entitled trolls who beg, cry and wine about how *inner circles* won't share with them. Why not put some of that negative energy into doing something positive? Well, that would be difficult and God knows kids these days don't want anything to do with helping themselves - they want handouts. So go stand in the scene welfare line and vote for the person who is all talk, but thus talk is full of lies and broken promises and keep doing that as you have for over two years.
If there is a method for a CFW for newer firmwares I would love to have it as I'm on OFW, but I do not expect anything from anyone. Back in the day we used to all hang out and participate, but then comes in the negativity that broke the scene into pieces such as hatred for your fellow scener and lust for fame and fortune (or free stuff).
I see no lines. I don't see "us vs anyone". I see a scene with different groups of people who are alike that communicate in small groups, IRC chatrooms, Wiki's and on the larger scale popular website forums. Most are more alike then they wish to admit and some are so blinded by their hate for their fellow man that you can barely have a civilized conversation with them and they use this anger to pursue their agenda's that have nothing to do with helping the scene grow or making it a better place.
When did people forget about how fun a scene can be when you all work towards a common goal, respect eachother and your differences and instead of trying to pass the next car only to run into a car in front of it you could just be blowing off any steam you have from being in a group of people who love to play video games.
What happened to that? Why must you use what little effort you have for hate? It takes a small weak man to do bad things, but it takes a much stronger one to admit they are wrong. There's no "sides" - there are just groups of people all over the place who are different, but come to the scene for a common goal.
When did this get forgotten? Where you not even aware a scene could be a great place to be.
Take a look at the Wii scene and contrast it with the PS3. I think you'll see that the unity and cooperation of sceners, developers and hackers produced one of the most open, versatile and "fun" environment to be in. The fruits that grew from that strong tree show in the quality and quantity of homebrew and exploits. I think the same could be said about the XBOX1 and NDS.
Grow up and act like men otherwise things will continue to get worse - that is unless you do something about it that doesn't involve being a complete arse.
