By now we all know that Sony filed a lawsuit against Geohot and fail0verflow for their distribution of PS3 jailbreak firmware and asked the court for a temporary restraining order (TRO) to stop said distribution of the offending code. Well, according to Geohot, the court denied Sony’s motion earlier today, though we’ve been unable to confirm the ruling as the docket doesn’t yet reflect the court’s order. Geohot has reposted the code online, so it seems safe to say that the TRO was shot down and the jailbreak can once again roam the internet unencumbered by any legal decrees. The ruling, while favorable to the defendants, has little effect on the outcome of the litigation itself, so Hotz and company aren’t out of the woods just yet. We’ll keep you posted on the status of the order, and will also watch as the case progresses for the real fireworks to start.
