Quoted from C0untDeM0net:
The very last line of sterns warning says if you downgrade from 1.08 you will brick the node boards.
I'm not sure you understand what bricking means because you keep using the term incorrectly and at best you're speculating. Bricking means your device is completely useless unless sent back to the manufacturer and replaced. Curious how you get this interpretation from this line:
"If someone DOWNGRADES their new game from 1.08 to 1.07 these newer node boards will no longer work."
The obvious interpretation here is that they simply stop working because the old code doesn't reference them and you need to go back to 1.08 for them to work again. This is not bricking.
