He said it once to appease fans, get over it.

You geohot fanboys/fags are retarded
not only that, but this is more PS3 related then android in anyway...if you read ANY of the legal docs you would know all of geohots computers/equipment was confiscated during the trial, and i doubt that he would go out buy a pc just so he could crack the bootloader, AND not only that, he said the REASON he bought the x10 was to get a feel for the security so he could crack the play. BUT since the play's bootloader should already be unlocked it really doesnt matter.

It's not bragging it's informing.

Did i insult him? no.. only weak minded fools would attack someone for talking about something that is not even related to himself.

Or let me guess he's emperor of sony, bow down to him and give him a oil change.

Can we please go back to the subject topic.

How am I not related to Sony Ericsson? I have an X10, among other Sony products.

You are the one who went completely off topic, and turned them dropping the charges to pissing on their own customers.

This action by Sony is the third step in recent weeks to right their former mistakes. Whether the GEOhot decision is directly related to the bootloader opening or the gingerbread update remains to be seen, but they most certainly are not pissing on their customers. It is actually quite the opposite.

For someone who brags about an IQ of 170, you really seem to be illogical and immature.
