I wanted to try VBoot but the last trial ended on jan 15th. Is the project still alive? It sounds very interesting but if it's dead i don't want to give it a try.

vboot is actively being developed. We haven't updated the trial version because We found some cracked versions based on our trial version. For now, you can try to change the BIOS date to be earlier than the expiration date, and test it.

We are trying hard to release a better protected trial version.

So you basically actively developing protection, as opposed to the actual software?

Don't you think that no matter what you do, somebody will most likely crack it anyway?

Make good product that works, with good support, easy to try, logical price for enthusiasts home users & it will we will sure buy it

I watch the vBOOT project since the beginning. Unfortunately the author obviously doesn't cope with development.
It is time to think about go vboot project to open source community. Consider this thought.

Excellent idea!!!
Obviously with current development speed the author will not get rich (or will not even make ends meet)

So give the good product a chance...

I visit every few months on the off chance that there might be a release of something meaningful. There never is. Just promises that it's almost ready..starting months and months ago. It has been obvious for a very long time that this project is, in reality, pining for the Norwegian fjords.

It stinks of a couple of guys trying to do something outside of their day jobs, and failing.

For God's sake - sell your IP to someone who can actually execute a product that will see the light of day. Or open source it. Or something. Anything but more of this.
