I really don't think that releasing this was a good idea. Maybe it would have taken years, but TI could eventually have changed their mind after they see we don't do anything against their interest. Now they'll think they can't trust us.
Moreover, it is a matter of days before Ndless is blocked so I really don't get the point of releasing it now
One thing you coould have done is a video of it working, but with no release, to tell TI "I don't harm your interest while I could". But I guess it is too late
(feel free to downrate me if you think that post was not constructive, I was explaining my point of vue)
