    Lightbulb Distributed Firmware Decryption

    Has anyone considered writing an application that would allow for distributed decryption of official firmware releases? Many people have contributed extra cycles to listening for alien life, performing genetic research, or participating in RSA contests. Although this idea is sure... I mean guaran-f'ing-teed to piss $ony off... I mean REALLY piss them off... It's a great way for the community to further itself.

    It's an interesting idea; whether or not it would actually work would depend on what kind of encryption the official firmware releases have (maybe somone could fill in some details here).

    If this would actually work and it ever got going, I would contribute some free CPU cycles to it. It would be nice to get 2.80 emulated in DevHook.
