This probab...

Re: Source code for bootcode.bin?

<t>Greetings,<br/> <br/> Is the source code to bootcode.bin available somewhere?  I looked through the github repo and couldn't find it.  If I remember correctly, this runs on the GPU so the instructions are not in standard ARM machine code format (objdump produces something incoherent).<br/> <br/> ...

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14)

<t>I just finished a chat with a support rep and they said my order would be shipping at the end of the month/beginning of next month.  I ordered on Feb. 29th and had my date end up in mid-august as well.  However, I went ahead and canceled my order and placed an order with RS instead since they exp...
