cant blame them. they dont want their method to be stolen xD ida hexray is maturing now xD one hit of an f5 and some common sense u can duplicate their method. claim it as yours. and i dont think emulation is a stupid trick, one good thing about it is you can leave the application untouched if you just proxied it or emulate it.. cracking dongles requires that sometimes xD I mean the method of cracking is not just 1 and theres no standard for it. .but they all share the same goal.. its kinda like speedrun xD tons of category but you may or not disaggree with it. but the end goal is to beat the system / target :slight_smile: isn't that what cracking means to begin with? to break it. regardless of the method.
