Cheers for the props a1ex, Vicne & Coderat have been banging it out.

There is still much to understand (currently trying to  find/identify the SD card chipset etc), but it's pretty exciting to see it come together.

I wish we have soft memory patching... (vs full system reflash)

yeah, really nice progress :)
i guess the difference is that we want the whole OS to start up, not just the GUI related tasks.

Its arm? You probably can do cache hacks... but if there is no mechanism to load something like autoexec. bin then I can see it being a big issue.

I'm not sure how well they understand the file I/O side, but if they can do a one-time flash with a custom-made bootloader, it may be a good option.

For file I/O we just use the high-level routines, but g3gg0 did some very nice research on low-level CF commands.

Only the newest camera's are ARM, the older (aka non D5300 or D7100) camera's are Fujitsu FR based.
