Slow. We know how to generate a firmware image that the device accepts, but we
don't know how to control the LCD and hardly any other HW-related stuff
either... and since we can't access the flash nor LCD it is hard to display
debugging information.

I think we'll manage to get there in the end, if we just have patience to keep
on trying different approaches and read more disassembly.

no

no

But we have a board with a JTAG cable attached that we will try to figure out
things with, once we get time to actually do it.

It is far from dead, it just started and we're not that many people working on
it and it is a pretty rough barrier we still need to get through to get up to
speed.
