Does this one have a decent GUI? The last one I downloaded for use with Jailbreak just had a text menu. Was hoping for something a little more like the psp version of Snes9x.
I'm not sure what you mean by "decent" but it seems nice to me for what it is. I've not tried it on the PSP.

fail0verflow is being sued by Sony!!!

There goes my skype on psn dream :(
Pathetic. What the fuck do they hope to get out of this? The hackers are hardly going to have the cash to pay for any outlandish claims or legal fees. Not to mention the situation is tricky at best, meaning the potential time and costs of litigation are not small. And then the worst part of course, is that the software and subsequent homebrew/piracy results are well and truly "out" for people to use - no amount of litigation will stop it now.

Can someone summarize the motion and proposed order? My iPhone won't seem to connect to the links/PDFs.

Sony isn't going to win this. At best they'll slow things down for a while.
That's the most important thing right now. Taking out the major players, even for a short period of time, is just going to benefit Sony.
 
It's on engadget now:
We knew Sony would be non-plussed about the PlayStation 3 jailbreak, and now we have a better idea as to the full extent of its anger. The company has filed suit against George "Geohot" Hotz, the "hacking group" fail0verflow (Hector Cantero, Sven Peter, "Bushing," and "Segher"), and numerous John / Jane Does over the exploit and its release. To be more specific, the company cites violations of Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, various copyright infringements, and other acts of binary malfeasance. A temporary restraining order has also been sought, asking that all "circumvention tools" be taken offline and his computers and related media (i.e. anything storing said tools) be impounded. It looks like Geohot's servers are being slammed at the moment, so we've gone ahead and hosted the relevant PDFs ourselves below. We're still sifting through ourselves and will let you know what we unearth.
Here.

Asking this here too because I need an answer. I am desperate.
Why don't you just use the computer you're on until there are more developments? It's going to take a little while for everything to be perfect.
 
So far you're pretty much limited to what was developed under 3.41 JB which is limited to what's been successfully ported to 3.55.

It will take a while to see new developments.

They have every legal right to sue.
I'm surprised Sony didn't do this earlier. It won't stop the development of more cracks and tools to break open the PS3, but if they can scare away the best, most knowledgeable hackers through legal action, they've won themselves a temporary respite. This development had gotten far too much good press in the media, there were far too many reports on how to jailbreak the PS3 yourselves. Sony should never allow this thing to spread because it will cost them money. They *know* that the markets for PS3 games in South and East Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East will completely collapse if they don't act now.

Not really, no.

I'm wondering if this is implicit confirmation that Sony can't fix it. Intruiging.
It will be part of the fix. Their statement of intent they hope will act as a deterrent. Going to court with big companies is expensive and will tie you and your lawyers up in knots for years as they drag stuff out with constant requests for info and data. They can get as technical as they want.

The software and hardware fix will still be in progress I guess, and when its releases they'll wanna put people off looking at it.

No, it's a precedent. I'll carry on in the other thread, missed that.

It did really backfire in Spain though, they even need to pay a fine to the psjailbreak distributor and the thing is "legal" there now. :lol
 
I'm not a lawyer, but even on a brief scan I can spot some gaping holes in Sony's argument. They're trying to shoehorn completely irrelevant laws into their case.

Sony said:
Under 18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(5)(A), SCEA will also likely prevail on its claim that Defendants “knowingly caused the transmission of a program, information, code or command, and as a result of such conduct, intentionally caused damage without authorization, to a protected computer.” Defendants knowingly transmitted SCEA’s proprietary information or code via the Internet, which has greatly damaged SCEA and threatens to cause immeasurable damage to the PS3 System. Bricker Decl. at ¶¶6-7, 21, Exhs. E-F, T.
Quick, let's ignore the "to a protected computer" bit of the law and hope people are dumb enough not to notice!

Yeah, their claim is, and I think this is the legal term, full of shit. Also posted on the other thread, but here is a quote:
Indeed, in the last few days, people have already started copying, playing and trafficking in pirated copies of video games using the 3.55 Firmware Jailbreak.

Lawyers probably hope to keep their job.
Other then that it's an obvious knee-jerk reaction (And likely way too late to change anything, even if they win).
Also it's to discourage people from participating in "the scene". The threat of a lawsuit works as a deterrent for some wannabe-hackers, I think.
