    You can check the hashes by installing Hashtab on your windows PC/Mac or using the "sha" or "md5" function in the terminal/console if you're using Linux/Mac.
    This way you'll be able to check the MD5/SHA hash of your Launcher.dat file.

    The Gateway launcher MD5/SHA:
    1.0 MD5: 062b40817fa7e1ec4b12fb8c1a9b4310
    1.1 MD5: 3a06e08a703c5ca2d43cf5ff7fcd3526
    1.2 MD5: 5A0775D695FFF7C2F2F1574220E25E21
    2.0b1 MD5: BF354D2616601715EE10269BB6DCDA8D
    2.0b2 MD5: 6361C5D4935AF6D888FFC0646548F5DD
    1.2 SHA: A114D5A166BA3C4B2979C9DEE6093DD7D96614FB
    2.0b1 SHA: 89EDB4D7EC657D0B8FA6FED3E9AB32701EAE5014
    2.0b2 SHA: 3508A54DD3B1FF903FBF18ECF97B075205B67D0C

    Hashtab:
    Right click the file, click on Properties and then on the File Hashes tab.​
    [​IMG]
    Linux/Mac:
    Go to the console/terminal and type in "sha" or "md5".​
    Drag the launcher.dat into the terminal/console.​
    The "bricking" only occurs on the beta 2.0 launchers due to a special code.​
    There are reports of bricked consoles with unmodified launchers, however most of the bricks occur from cloned launchers and modified ones.​
    Here's a thread with more MD5 hashes. ​
    Cheers to Green cat for the console/terminal method and various people for the various MD5/SHA hashes.​
    Anyone that got Mac/Linux screens, feel free to PM me!​
    Thread under construction.​

    However, this has no purpose because there have been reports of bricking with the untouched (and hash verified) launcher... if the launcher is corrupted, it just doesn't load.

    Ofcourse it won't be that effective and extreme paranoid people will avoid it at all cost, but for the ones that do take the risk, it's helpful to reduce the risk more.

    What about 1.2? It was hard to find a link for a download and its not from any official source so I'm curious if I downloaded a legit version.

    I unfortunately don't have the old launchers.
    Keep this thread watched as I update it over time.

    1.2 isn't available on gateways link anymore so it would be nice to know if you found a legit link since you can't link it on here.

    It's purely the launcher that corrupts the NAND.
