Yes, this has been changed. Now you're almost guaranteed to get a key if you don't have a key in your inventory yet. Otherwise you will never get another key.

comment What are the odds of getting a portal key through hacking?
Actual probability theory suggests that the chances of getting a portal key for a friendly portal on 4 hacks, given a 1/6th chance of getting a key is: (1 - (5/6 * 5/6 * 5/6 * 5/6)) * 100 = 51%. On 2 visits it would be 76%.

comment What are the odds of getting a portal key through hacking?
So I can estimate that I will need 7 hacks (or in my case 2 visits, because a portal burns out after 4 hacks) per key. So for 3 keys (2 incoming links and 1 for recharging / defending) I would be looking at about 6 visits (depending on luck). Thanks! May I ask how you recorded the hacks? Plain pen and paper or something more sophisticated?
