Re: Nintendo vs Sony
Was that Geohot? I thoght his task was to re-implement the 'Other OS' Function, that got striped out, Because he managed to slowly work out how to address the RSX Chip from the userspace.
Where as Team 0verFl0w were the ones who discoverd the bug in S0NYs code that bascily made the RNG, well slightly less random. And, in point of fact, were able to fully extract S0NYs supper secret Private Key (FW 3.55), That way. And the rest as they say was History.*
*Though I understand it most of this actually came via the PSP, and not so much the PS3 itself. in as far as they both shared much of the same underlining Kernel.
