PS3 just came out, if more than anything they will crack the PS3 first. Sony is so open with that console...

I believe this is to downgrade the kernal on the 360 so you can run the shader exploit from the King Kong game. MS left some unsigned code and opened the door a bit from what I understand.

I don't see anything wrong with hacking a console for homebrew. Some incredible innovations come out of the community from this. Maybe you heard of a program on the original Xbox called XBMC? It is by far the most complete and impressive Media Center ever. I would love to see it come to the 360 and support HD content. However, I don't want to see it used for piracy. Homebrew = good Piracy = bad ! MS has done a good job this time around with their protection. There hasn't been a console yet that hasn't been hacked and the PS3 will have it's time.
