I seem to remember that someone eventually did pinpoint the cause of the OTPless bricks, but I can't find the relevant post. (It was some sort of unexpected memory corruption on reboot.)

EDIT: Here it is: https://www.reddit.com/r/3dshacks/comments/6cu4ri/the_reason_for_the_otpless_bricks_has_been_found/

@Y2K btw
about OTPLess
the reason it was causing bricks was discovered
boot9 does a variable length XDMA copy over that area. The length is based on something that changes PER BOOT
so, it was random chance if you bricked or not.
