Is there any clear evidence that Gateway really put in a killcode in their launcher?

    From what I have read so far, people said that there is a killcode because the r4i and region free launcher users bricked at about the same time and some other reasons. So I wanted to know if the killcode has been found yet and what are the conditions for it to activate since if it really is time wouldn't all the r4i users got bricked by now?

    The kill code (at least the first one) got discovered and from what I heared here it gets activated if
    -The Checksum isn't right
    -a random number dependend on the time is generated
    -You exit EmuNAND

    This portion is more speculative based, but based on earlier announcements from the team, they have alluded to some event happening in the case that a user continues using the cloned software. Either that or I suck at reading between the lines.

    They claim that the bricked GWs are fake but they never denied having a bricking code.

    I can see it now, a bunch of axe gangs going around posting on the scene forums. I would think they would have something better to do, like sharpening their axes.

    The flashcard companies are larger than you think. There are not many out there (at least Another World said that).
