Motorola VIP 1910 fail

I managed to acquire the source code to the Motorola VIP 1910 iptv box. It went much smoother than I expected. Turns out that the box only accepts code signed by Motorola. Mkáking it impossible for a normal user to run custom code.

Nice way of supporting the spirit of the GPL motorola!

I haven't opened the box or started to reverse engineer anything. I've only examined the source code for the firmware which I requested from motorola.

If you want access to the source code, let me know
