Am I correct in assuming that the setup without zeropic only works on a naomi and not on a chihiro or triforce? If you check the python script, you will see that something is ran periodically to prevent the system from checking the presence of the security chip. In some py programs, this was remarked out. (so it's no longer running.) Another thing I noticed was that on a dual chihiro 3 setup, communication with the netdimm has to start within 15 seconds after powerup. If you are 2 late, the game starts and takes over the network port so that no further communication with it is possible.
