Lord Pall had trouble creating a full image of the disc due it's bad physical condition; he was however able to copy (parts of) the squashfs filesystem file (which spans 95% of the disc and contains the OTP block). A tentative OTP block was subsequently extracted from the squashfs filesystem.


This appears to be disc 8 out of 9 Black OTP CDs.

OTP block SHA-256: 34b7a1d6ba98120acfa2f3ccd998fdf7ccee29a380e2c72650028c446b9dd73e

Note: the block above was extracted from a partial dump of filesystem.squashfs.
