This hack enables third party licensed technology, and since this is a result of an unpaid license fee to these third parties, we have the risk that either one of these parties take legal action or that there is a signed contract that forces its licensees to do so.
Therefore there is a legal risk that has been marked by our legal team as unacceptable as it could result in legal problems for CD Freaks and individual developers.
As the development of the tools and firmwares are a hobby we feel that in case our legal team notifies us that there is an unacceptable risk we should not take the risk of legal implications for this individual issue.
Therefore we limit the discussion on this subject to certain rules that will ensure our future.
