WRONG! DO NOT SPREAD MISINFORMATION. There have been ZERO POSTS of having received a kill switch if nomoreota.zip was correctly used. All posts were from those who DID NOT follow proper procedures, which is to delete TegraOTA BEFORE booting into the system (See FIRST bullet point!).

OK. and what does mean "[BUSTED] Pyro got killed after flashing recovery image!" ??

or

Here is what I think happened: i had Recovery erased..you know why. So I were on stock with nethunter and suffered from random reboots. That's why I tried reflash it. Once the regular Recovery was installed i got Killswitch es ???*

There's zero indication Nailyouh deleted TegraOTA after flashing recovery. Like I said, the few posts I have seen regarding a bricked tablet since the Marshmallow update have been from those who didn't correctly remove TegraOTA.

On Marshmallow, once TegraOTA is deleted, the "System updates" function is some stock Google updater that doesn't do anything on the tablet.

Are you sure that the normal google update does do anything?

All I can tell you is I dirty flashed my US LTE tablet from Lollipop to Marshmallow using the RoW-LTE Full 4.1 OTA zip, deleted TegraOTA, and my tablet is still alive. I've tapped System updates many times and nothing has happened the last few weeks I've had this installed.

Thats the stock update screen. That means you're safe.

Never fully boot your tablet with Stock Recovery or without deleting the TegraOTA folder.

I was able to update my original tablet from k1 stock rom to original tablet stock rom 6.0.1 without an isse via TWRP. I was pretty amazed when I learnt it is possible to do that. Updating to original tablet stock rom also restored the stylus functionality which is another epic win for me.
