Re: Is it possible to reverse engineer the Pi with ASM?

The IP lawyers could be knocking on his door any day. Reverse engineering is illegal in the United States and European Union in most cases. Poking the hardware in funny ways to discover how it reacts may not be illegal depending on the licence conditions of the hardware manufacturer. Publishing you...

Re: Is it possible to reverse engineer the Pi with ASM?

I think you need to read up on nondisclosure agreements and IP and IP Law. It's a horrible minefield and heavily protected. Then how come documents such as: http://www.agner.org/optimize/microarchitecture.pdf#page182 Exist? If I read this correctly; the maker of this document is not in partnership ...

Re: Is it possible to reverse engineer the Pi with ASM?

To learn how the ARM processor works read the 771 page reference document from Broadcom. http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0301h/DDI0301H_arm1176jzfs_r0p7_trm.pdf That explains everything you need to know about the CPU in exquisite and concise detail. Thanks for the link but that ...

Re: Is it possible to reverse engineer the Pi with ASM?

Assembler is a programming language where you write lots of mnemonics that each translates directly to one machine instruction. You are in complete control of the machine and even the simplest things like reading a keyboard or writing a character on the screen are your job. You get macro code and o...

Is it possible to reverse engineer the Pi with ASM?

Looking to use the Raspberry Pi as an educational tinker-er computer for mainly assembly, CPU architecture and networking. Wondering if I could mash two of these together and reverse engineer the ARM11 in the Pi with assembly to learn more about CPU arch (a big passion of mine) as well as some ARMv6...

Re: Want to get a Pi. Have some questions!

1. Oh so assembly is referred to as "bare metal" definitely didn't see that coming :lol: 2. I'll be redirecting my question that-a-way! (the bare metal section-a-way!) 3. Thanks for the resources! Although that doesn't answer the exact question :( 4. Simply; can I use the Raspberry Pi as a server/cl...

Want to get a Pi. Have some questions!

Howdy there guys! So, I'm currently looking for a little "tinkerer" computer that I can mess with and learn with. The Pi seems to fit the bill perfectly; however, I have some questions that I need answered before I take the plunge: 1. Can I effectively learn assembly on the Pi? I know I can learn as...

Re: Crashcorse me.

<r>Ah so thats it for Windows CE as for now. Well no problem I suppose, I wasnt aiming specifcally at Windows CE, I just thought it\'d be cool to have a Windows system on a super compact device, but Linux has always been good to me in terms of speed <E>:)</E><br/> <br/> Also, any word on the overclo...

Re: Crashcorse me.

<t>@abishur<br/> Hardware upgrading is a definite nono? Fair enough. Sorry if this sounds noobish, but I\'m not familiar with ARM processors so much; is it possible OVERCLOCK one? (accounting for the extra heat by adding a heatsink or something obviously if the heat was soooo much)<br/> <br/> I was ...

Re: Crashcorse me.

<t>@kme<br/> Yeah I know that Raspberry is just the board. Which is why I asked about mouse, keyboard, and screen =_=. And I\'m very familiar with HDMI and Composite alike. And yes, I have seen Windows 98, I was actually wondering if maybe Windows CE was right for this project of mine.<br/> <br/> @ ...

Let me give you some backdrop as to what I want to get out of Raspberry Pi, and if what I want is possible out of this little board.<br/> <br/> I\'m a 15 year old highschool student in Cabot Secondary in Mississauga Ontario.
