Including the fact that people who debrick regularly (developers) use images they already downloaded before, there may have been thousands (certainly more than one thousand) successful debrickings by now.
And this PDF file is so new, it is interesting to see that versions of it have been downloaded over 200 time JUST from the mirror (plus more from the original site).
Amazon knows we are helping them (I have spent hours on the phone with their "deep" techs discussing firmware and debricking issues). They tolerate our firmware images because they know we are helping them, but their legal staff never sent the written permission I had requested.
Anyway, let's not add roadblocks to newbies in the form of suggestions in the "poll". It is already hard enough, with needing to create an MR account to post here.
I included "0" as a choice for that reason.
I just wish I could have added that: 156,000-9 "No comment" entry.
