PS3 hacker raided by German police

German police have raided the home of a PS3 hacker, seizing his computers and PlayStation 3 consoles and handing them to Sony for use as evidence in its legal campaign against PS3 jailbreaking.

According to a post on PSX Scene, German police officials accompanied by a representative from Sony raided the home of PS3 hacker 'graf_chokolo'.

Police confirmed that the computing tools were seized to look for evidence too support its upcoming court battles against Geohot and others.

But just a few hours after Sony raided his home, the German hacker posted his archive of work, detailing methods of how to jailbreak a PS3 and install third-party Linux software, online providing a DIY jailbreaking guide for those interested enough to look.

“Guys, i don’t joke, it’s serious. And to prove it, i kept my word and uploaded all my HV reversing stuff," graf wrote in the PSX Scene forum post. "Upload it everywhere so SONY couldn’t remove it easily. Grab it guys, it contains lots of knowledge about HV and HV procs,” he urged.
