One could effectively argue Sec. 103(f) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. 1201) allows reverse engineering, and this would fall under that section. But lets not play armchair lawyer, and just hope that people can start resurrecting their CPS2 B boards without resorting to Phonexing the roms.

>The post specifically says "without hardware modification".  So I'm assuming that MAME and the de-suicide stuff was a hack and not actual decryption.<

Slow your roll, player. By hack, he meant "work around". He's not talking about the actual act of getting the game code.

Why is 'phonexing' the roms undesirable?

I think it subtly changes the gameplay?  I had a phoenixed MVC once, I honestly couldn't tell a difference.

personally?  I hate the "Phoenix Edition" branding and website ad ,but in general they have a lower "value" when buying/selling
