!findclaim cipher lmao

### Step 1: Axial Symmetry Transposition

In this step, you are going to create five 4 by 4 grids.

#### Grid #1:

Take the battery count modulo 2. If this value is 0, fill rows 1 and 2 with 10101010, otherwise 01010101.

Take the port count modulo 2. If this value is 0, fill rows 3 and 4 with 10101010, otherwise 01010101.

#### Grid #2:

Take the 16-digit binary number shown on the bottom screen of Page 2, fill the 4 by 4 grid with these digits, then *horizontally flip the grid.*

#### Grid #3:

Take each cell in Grids #1 and #2 in reading order. If they are the same, this position in Grid #3 is a 1, otherwise it is a 0.

#### Grid #4:

Take the 16-digit binary number shown on the top screen of Page 1, fill the 4 by 4 grid with these digits, then *horizontally flip the grid.*

#### Grid #5:

Take each cell in Grids #3 and #4 in reading order. If they are the same, this position in Grid #5 is a 1, otherwise it is a 0.

Example:

Battery count: 2

Port count: 5
