Let me disagree with that, it's still a nice tool for broken camera diagnosis :)

And I predict we will see that more often in the future. At the moment all those not-so-versed-in-coding-people get stuck when they try to make ML code run on unsupported firmware or trying to install ML on unsupported cams. We had a lot of "discussions" how to make it run anyway by gifted fellows (renaming the file for example ... hey, it will work: Checksum is identical! Hooray!).
Canon Basic Script however is plain text and word will get around. All safeguards implemented (if any) checking for proper firmware or camera type can be disabled with just a few characters (' -> You are a comment now). And here we go poking the hell out of a 1D X Mark III by using a script for M6 II!

I suggest a1ex to switch to billing per starting hour for those <censored> if there cams have to be reanimated.

It will happen. It will happen soon. It will happen quite often.

If this bothers you, why don't you force new users to read the FAQ before they can post on the forum. It would also be possible to hide links and attachments from unregistered visitors.

I'm not a mod, I'm not an administrator. Therefore I have no permissions to change anything on this server. And even if I would: I absolutely have no intention to do so.
I extremely dislike hidden content forcing readers to register. And it doesn't work. You can't hide such things forever. Security by obscurity is a flawed concept.
You cannot make a system fool-proofed. Another flawed concept.

I simply wanted to express my opinion that we will see abuse of this gem and we should be prepared to handle it.

You are in second on this forum by the number of posts, so I confused you with moderator. Sorry.
But aren't you tired of answering the same stupid newbie questions over and over again?

I also do not prefer "security by obscurity".
But forcing users to read the FAQ formally shifts the responsibility for the negative consequences of their actions on them.

Hey. Don't know how significant this is, but when I try to place the sd card with portable rom dumper into the R6, the camera locks up in slot 2 AND slot 1.

But when I run the basic dumper, the sd card only works in slot 2.
