well, i'm studying(?) MIPS's assembly, and C/C++... I'm not like "OH
MY GOD, HE HAS THE SKILLS!1!!!!", but i have a pretty good logic
reasoning, so i think that i can do something... Even it is an "Hello
World" message on the screen... =]

I just want a way to save the current firmware, so i can restore it
when i want to use the poor device...

I dont have eletronics things like multimeter, and i would not like to
open the "mp4" to reverse engeneer it... but i think that i don't need
to, because of that documentation in the first response i've got...

I would like to know if someone already tried something on the
Satellite's m118, so i can learn something with his code...
