In other words, if I purchase some broadcom sample SoC's, they will boot properly as long as I include those two pieces of software you indicated? Thanks!
Yes, but that's a very big if. Also, the firmware the raspberry pi uses is compiled for the raspberry pi. We don't try to support other devices, although it might work anyway. IF
you get the chips from broadcom, I think they'll also provide you with the firmware source code and tools to compile it.
