Geohot Responds to Sony With a Rap

For those of you unfamiliar with Geohot (George Hotz), he’s the man behind the PS3 Jailbreak as well as one of the biggest names in the iPhone Jailbreaking scene. If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone, this is the guy that made it possible. He is currently being sued by Sony for releasing a jailbreaking tool for the PS3, which has since been modified by other hackers to play pirated games… Let me say that again, Geohot did not release a utility that allows people to pirated games, his original tool was modified for that purpose alone. It’s the same with the iPhone jailbreak. When he first jailbroke the iPhone there was no App Store so jailbreaking was the only way to get apps onto the phone and since Apple has locked down the phone to only allow certain apps through legal means, the jailbreaking scene still exists, thankfully.

Either way, the video above is Geohotz’ response to Sony suing him. Sure, it’s a little childish, but so is asking YouTube to give them the name of everyone that’s ever watched Geohotz’ video related to the PS3 jailbreak… Sony, I’m looking at you. I’m actually kind of surprised at GH’s flow, I was expecting this to be absolutely terrible, but the guy isn’t bad. Best of luck man.
