lokivanishes

Method of discovery: Somebody named "lokivanishes" posted a hint in a forum at neowin. The content of that hint is this:

Well, I don't normally do this, but since you guys were first on the scene, here's a cypher key for you. Impressive job!

More to come....but not delivered like this. Keep your eyes on the Post.

Good luck!

Cipher Key 4

Method of discovery: A poster at a Halo site received a mysterious Puzzle Box Package containing a grid. (See his post.)

12/23/2006: Earlier today I received a package from Microsoft containing a puzzle box, which after figuring out the puzzle and opening it, contained a small 256MB USB Key. The Key contained a video, a letter, and a cipher key, which I have attached below ... the key seems to be related to the image on the Internet Explorer blog. Anyone figure it out?

Cipher Key 5

Method of discovery: Doug Stockwell performed cryptanalysis on the entire ciphertext, scanning through various possible decryptions. Later, an official key with the same information was discovered by Gear Live.

Cipher Key 6

This key was mailed to people on a 256MB memory stick in a silver envelope. However, apparently an error was made as it should have read "Rot -4" rather than "Rot +4" in the picture:

This key is not the "word" it should have been. Apparently someone realized the mistake and posted a corrected picture as lokivanishes in the Neowin forum (post was later removed):

Result:

However, the website will still accept both keys, and both lead to the same page:

This picture again has two errors in it (is Loki that sloppy?):

1) The numbers at the end of the second row have to be: 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1
2) The numbers at the bottom of the 11th column have to be: 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1

Ignition Video

A new YouTube video, Ignition, was discovered. (ref) It hints pretty strongly that a key is "formula" and entering that key gives the following result:
