N has done me well. Sent a brick in that did not have a vulnerable boot1. They sent back an older console LU5X and it had sysmenu 3.4 installed. I would've thought it would have a higher version but guess not. And only 4 bad blocks on NAND. I wanted to post this in case anyone has been hesitant to send in, you may get lucky as I did. Also the turnaround time was less than 5 days. I would've paid for the repair had they determined foul play but I'll take things the way they are.
