I don't want to say much. I don't know how SXOS verifies that the license you buy is being used in the Console that you activated it. But in a hypothetical case, now that it is possible to use EMUNAND, it is possible to trick the SXOS so that the active license in one console can be used in another, making it believe that it is what activates it.

What does SXOS verify that the console where I activate the license is using?

Not possible at the moment, the license gets tagged with the console that it is activated with, even if you use the same license key on another unit it wouldn't work. Just buy the license if you want SX OS.

He doesn't check the PRODINFO participation where is the console ID? Ex: "XAW-XXXX ...." or also does other checks ?.

Well, it's only in the interest of using XCI Mount, for nothing else.

The licence is non-transferrable between units, it seems to be tied to the serial / ID maybe even size of your Emmc.

I`ve done eMMC size upgrades for people and in EVERY ONE of them, the licence.dat was no longer valid.

I change back to original eMMC via my test device and it boots perfectly.

It seems to be if you can spoof the emmc IDs then you should be at the races. But it won`t be that simple. More likely it is a hash made of emmc id, console sn, tsec key combined or something.

RSA2048-PSS message of the SHA256 of the MMC CID.

Doubt it'll ever happen. I don't think SX OS offers much more than Atmosphere anyways at this point. It's just not going to be worth anyone's time.

Maybe it is possible somehow but SX implemented brick code that could be bad for NAND.
Probably not as the older versions have a more hardcore brick code.
Brick code got removed with version 1.3:
see changelog:
-Removed eMMC password lock
It seems a perfectly safe and easily reversible hacker challenge we put in place for aspiring hackers has been blown out of proportion. We are sad to see so many false claims on the internet and to avoid any further false accusations and 'fake news' we decided to get rid of it. -

Wasn't an older version of sxos cracked & the people that cracked it changed the name & started selling it as a paid cfw?
yep right: xkns: https://www.xkns.net still up but servers are slow :)

Read before you post.

Also, XT (which i will call the XK OS Devs) didn't even try to hide it was sx, lol :P

And the brick code was already discussed here, TX said that they removed it, no proof. Just statement, and there is still the brick code. Its just less hardcore.

As an SXOS customer very early on, it's honestly not worth it anymore. If SXOS was going to be cracked it would have been cracked a long time ago, anyone that cared about bypassing their DRM has since given up and it's honestly pointless to try and bypass it with what we have in the open source community now.
