Congratulations on documenting the 73 assembly support! I don't know anyone who has a 73, but I'm sure whoever does will be happy once games start getting ported. :)

As for the calculator bricking program, wtf? I get that it's proof of concept, but someone could easily take that code, change the name, and put it on a calculator website, pretending that it's a game. This sort of thing happened with DS homebrew, and lots of DSs were bricked. I've written some potentially malicious code myself, but I don't post it online for just anyone to download, and I'm not sure why you're doing it.

Bah, don't spoil his fun!

Well, maybe it could be dangerous... Does it have confirmation screens and such?

Nope. As soon as you run it, your calculator is bricked.

Also, I just realized that although in Brandon's readme for FlashDrv he said he didn't release its source because he didn't want to tell everyone how to unlock flash, in the source code of this program there is a specific segment of code that can be easily used to unlock flash. It's even labeled unlockFlash!

So, how was Mallard implemented if it wasn't run with built-in assembly support? Was it a hacked OS file or something?

I care. :) Even though I don't have a 73, I think it's awesome that you can disassemble these OSes and find cool stuff like this. I wish that the 83+ series also let you put assembly in-line with basic...

Well, I'll just continue posting on your newest release here. The certificate patcher for the 73 sounds really cool. You mentioned that it'd pave the way for third-party OSes on the 83+ series... Does this imply that the same workaround on the 73 for apps will work on the 83+ series for OSes? This would be good news, since I have an 84+SE, and I'd like to be able to try out Vera OS if the new team comes up with something good.

Once again, great job! You have wonderful skill at writing and reverse-engineering assembly code! I'm sure if you had been around when Windows, Mac OS, Linux, etc. were becoming popular, then today a few of us would be dual-booting Tortoise OS on our PCs! :D
