As ‘scene’ developers are finding ways to ‘return’ Linux to Jailbroken PS3 Consoles, that Sony forcely removed from all Consoles last year, Sony has decided to use the 1st year Anniversary of this sad event, to move the courts to dismiss the ‘Other OS’ lawsuits that had been filed by ‘legit’ PS3 owners! One of the ‘legal’ grounds that Sony seems to be using is the wonderful new ‘ToS’ that also had recently forced down PSN owners with the switchover to ‘SNEA’, read more from extracts from the ‘Groklaw’ site: Quote: There’s news from the class action litigation, In re Sony PS3 ‘Other OS’ Litigation, where the plaintiffs are suing Sony Computer Entertainment America for removing OtherOS from Playstation 3s. SCEA has filed another motion to dismiss [PDF] the class action case, once again saying that the plaintiffs’ newly filed First Amended Complaint is insufficient to state a claim

Well with the coming launch of Sony’s first Playstation Phone called the Xperia Play to be released tomorrow! Sony has called in their ever hungry for fresh meat their ever fateful Giant Enemy Crab’s , and this time it is the Google Android Market that will be game for the kill! Xperia wants to play here, go somewhere else Quote: ZodTTD’s PlayStation emulator was unceremoniously yanked from the Android Market by Google today in a move the developer suspects is partly down to the launch of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play ‘PlayStation Phone’. PSX4Droid had been available on the Market for almost half a year before it was removed due to, “content violation.” ZodTTD reveals on Twitter that he has been, “working like mad on a psx4droid update,” and that Google’s action effectively spells the end of the program for existing customers of the emulator. ZodTTD believes the takedown was influenced by Sony

Recently, there has been alot of chatter on various sites ever since Graf_Chokolo released his petitboot tools which all tho very complex and only for true PS3 experts, allows for your PS3 to branch out to different boot-up paths during start-up! :D Now, Kmeaw (world-famous now for releasing the most-stable PS3 v3.55 Custom Firmware with all the ever needed Jailbreaking patches already in place for the end-user!) has stepped in saying that he is also looking into this new dual-boot feature, but wants to know if there would be a high enough demand for it! :dance: Quote: I was thinking of a CFW that has bootOS integrated so it gets executed when you power on your PS3 (and switches back to GameOS on user’s request via menu or ssh). It’s not hard to make it
