There is absolutely no requirement in the GPLv3 for developers to release any private keys, they just have to provide the ability to allow users to run modified code with no loss in functionality if the original makers themselves can do so also.
So the developers would have to give me a key, which enables me to run the modified code - even if the modification means that I've removed the anti-theft features like the "calling home" thing. Which would brake the whole anti-theft concept. Or is there something I'm missing?
