Facts about IKS – Accessing Nagra 3
Nagra 3, which BEV and DN are using on their systems, and many fear is unbreakable is….well, broken. Its just a matter of implementing it in FTA, if this can be done because the current break is being used in Europe with Card-sharing (IKS) as well as in Nfusion in Canada/USA and Mexico.
For those who say Nfusion did not hack Nagra3. your right they didnt. They don’t have to because this is the way they designed their equipment to work.
Nfusion can operate in 3 ways. (Although most people are only aware of 2).
IKS/Card Sharing – The involves sharing working key data, almost as if you were running a subscription. This is Nfusions primary method.
Emulator – Nfusion can run in full emulation which most receivers cannot. Most are partial, although they claim full. CNX is an example of Full Emu. Although Nfusion does not currently allow both emulator and IKS. Although they have in the past, and they will again in the future. This is a “card hack” that is the same as using an FTA receiver and Autorolling bins. This is Nfusions secondary (or backup).
KS – Yes, just plain old Key-sharing, which is pre-loaded and not maintained by internet connections. Some IKS boxes already do this (I believe Neo-IKS does this) and SonicView is currently in the works of designing a circuit board that can be added inside SV boxes. It is the same as IKS, except users are downloading the data, lets say to USB and loading them to the boxes. A mix between Emulation and IKS sort of.
At the moment, Nfusion is running IKS, but when problems occur they can release an Emulated bin, they have done this before when having issues with IKS. At the moment we have only seen Nagra 3 operate on IKS, but that is not to say they don’t have an emulator working on it.
Now, I keep reading posts and whiners saying “NFUSION NEVER HACKED N3, ITS JUST A TEMPORARY WORKAROUND.” and/or “They can only access some channels, they suck/have no way to carck nagra3″.
-Their goal was not the crack Nagra 3. They use key/card sharing and they have proven themselves in IKS as no other box has accessed Nagra 3 yet. Nfusion intended to use IKS to access Nagra 3 and its working. Yes at the moment they can only access some channels, and yes the list is growing daily. No one receiver coding team can snap their fingers and all the channels are there. Even when cards were cracked, we have Football Cards, Hockey Cards, Movies, Locals, etc. We didn’t get “wide open” right away. Also, it is not a temporary fix, IT IS THE FIX. Some believe the job they have done is incomplete. IT IS COMPLETE. Now they are just adding channels.
The reason they don’t have all the channels is because they are acquiring key data for each and every channel. It is believed they are using subscription cards (new N3/G3 cards) and sharing them amoung IKS followers (nf) allowing them access to whatever channels that card accesses. Remember when you get a sub, you dont a card and then EVERY channel is open. You get packages like sports, movies, dish 500, etc. So even if they are using Subscription cards, and people believe this will be caught and removed, they are so far the ONLY known people to read a Nagra 3 card and/or data. So before you go bashing Nfusion, they have done more than anyone else and are the only ones with a working Nagra 3 system. They have done an outstanding job. Basically, yes Nfusion has cracked Nagra 3. No they didnt release a wide open emulator. But this was their intentions, even their Nagra 2 runs on IKS not emulation.
