Hey all, I've moved on over to @lethalbit, you can find me over there.

Working on importing the following, but misskey is kinda futsy with that.

I... I wonder if I could make a really janky-ass BGA ZIF socket with some laser cut acrylic and pogo pins.

So that's the flash, 256MB CMOS NAND EEPROM.

there look to be a few test points around it, but it looks like you need full access to it's parallel IO/Address bus to actually pull the data off it.

Womp Womp.

Looks like I could just run code on the thing if I had a JavaCard and knew what it wanted. Fun.

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with serial to b̸̝̏͂̒͗͑̇̚͝ͅt̵̟̦̬̪̲̯̳̑̀̓̐̚͘̚ẻ̶͓͚͈͉̑̎̄͜s̶͖͋͋̏̆͐

Looks like it's got an anti-tamper switch in it. That's gonna be fun.

Looks like it's got a few ASICs, or at least rebadged chips in it.

That's kinda a pain.

A good place to start is to look at the FCC documents for things you want to poke.

Lots of good stuff.

Christmas came early it seems~

Yet more firmware to dump~

Aaay there we go, that looks nice.

Still so much empty space on the PCB, Ideal spot for a logo.

I am distraught to find that the 8-position SmartCard contact footprint I made, that I thought I updated to make better, was in-fact, not updated. RIP, well I guess I'm fixing it again.

I'm still trying to find a project excuse to use SMA connectors.

I don't have one, but I'm trying.

I still need to figure out a nice logo for lethalcard. It's a shame I can't do graphic design, RIP.

Here I am worrying that a trace is too long, zoomed in like 500% only to realize that it's only like, 1cm.

Found a draft of a blog post I was writing ages ago, have a sneak peek.
