At any moment there is a limited number of human engineers working at skill 26 (18 (skill)+4(assistants)+4(versatile 4)). By selling just some TL10 technology they would be rolling at -27 (-22(amazing)+5(working model)-10(TL+2)). If they were to take 30 times the basic time, that would be rolling against 4, which means 1.85% probability for success, or about 1418 years to reverse anything. And this presupposes that the androids, being artificial intelligences, consented instead of resorting to self-destruction.
