I can see why Samsung did this as it provides a rock solid way for a ROM to check that it is running on a device that has not been tampered with.

It is not a good thing for those of us who like to install 3rd party ROMs but want to have the possibility to return the device to factory condition but, let's face it, we are a tiny minority.
