Pre 2.0 it was possible if you stuck it in gear and extracted it, you could RE the armoring with a chance to learn the schematic. Is this still the case?

I haven't tested it myself...but best bet would be to buy the cheapest green item on the gtn that you don't know the blue version as a test. Then when you click RE, the tooltip will either say ''20% chance to learn a new schematic'' or else ''no research available''.

I don't think you can anymore. There was a big "uproar" about it around the time 2.0 came out and Bioware sided with the people who didn't want that functionality.

If I remember correctly.

I believe you can still do this. And Bioware basically said it wasn't intentional but that they where not really bothered by it either. I can't remember where the thread is, but I do believe this is how it went down. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Even the smallest of light sources can light up the darkness.

That's pretty much correct. They also said that they might prevent it in the future, but I haven't personally seen any announcement of it having been changed.
