In v5, the whole packet was encrypted. v7/v8 prepends just another byte.
This has the advantage that the first byte in all cases tells you what kind
of a packet this is. So you encrypt everything after the first byte that
contains the value 2 (which actually encrypts only the first quarter...).
The key ("checkcode") will at last be written at the beginning of the
encrypted area.

Sometimes it is easier to sniff on other clones that already have this
