1 Software repository and developer toolchain on Wed 10 Nov 2010 - 15:55

Hi all,

I'm relatively new to this platform, but not to FW hacking/rev-eng (see for example my *glorious* [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and I'd like to start working on this one too.

What I'd like to know is if there's a common software repository, for our creations, or if you have some good reference to provide about. Also, I'd like to understand what is the most common developer toolkit that one should have at hand, for both WinCE and Linux.

thanks
Fabio

PS _ hoping to gain as many points as possible soon. Smile

Welcome!

AFAIK, there is no such repo for us "newcomers", but I don't know if such exists for the Knights. But it would be extremely welcome, since for example I am almost absolutely virgin when it commes to disassembling/rev.engineering, but have general programming skills (as I make a living out of it...). So under the supervision of some people more knowledged regarding the architecture, I could be useful... But that again needs a CVS.

As I know, for WinCE platform development, the Platform Builder is to be used, there is a free 120 day trial version.

For WinCE app development, there is the standard Visual Studio, but GCC is also available for WinCE, see the CeGCC project on sourceforge.

As for Linux - I don't know... The problem is that the core is a standard run-of-the-mill ARM926ej-s, but the other peripherals are not that well known. HaRET is a must, and I think some of the knights succeeded in firing up the kernel, but AFAIK, that's where the projects stand right now.

It won't be me, who stands in the way Wink
