Another question,what happens if some one has counterfit board and calls in the id number and the number is ok!,now the next person that calls in with the none counterfit board and gets told its fake cause someone has allready rang in with the same number you will autothink the second board is fake but the counterfit people got one number right by chance ? how do you know wich board is fake? and doeas the first person get told say in the futer when the second person rings in with same board id that one of them is fake? has that ever happened.? i know it probably unlikely but it may cause someone to belive that there boaard is fake when its not and then seller on ebay or wherever gets in trouble,just a thought. :roll: :idea:

The firmware was not fully opened but a useful interface was provided to the core that was wrapped. It is true that users can build their own application without source of the core.

First of all the ID number is random so it is very hard for someone to guess a correct one. Even if someone does and the second one come in with the same ID we would ask both to provide supporting proofs like receipts and photos. It won't be too difficult for us to tell which one is genuine if we go to that point.

I've got a board that came with firmware -042, but no ID tag, that was purchased recently. I'm guessing it old stock as it has the JYE logo (NOT Sainsmart), and the assembly instructions have two 1.5k resistors (R38, R11).

P.S. The board is red not black.
