Technology will usually find a way -- if people can update the firmware - they could conceivably change the serial number etc etc etc. - Whether its "Flashing" or "Chipping" I think the meaning is clear -- the device has been "unofficially modified".
They could even put a brand new hardware chip into it I suppose -.
The biggest problem of course is if your IP address is blocked - then you'll have some serious explaining to do if yo want to connect again to that server from the same IP address.
