- Palm IIIx: os & bootloader interaction
July 16, 2005, 9:52 pm
rate this thread
I'm preparing to put my own OS on my PalmIIIx--got the tools working &
I can load embedded programs into ram that write to the micro's
I need to know where to place my OS in flash (where the bootloader will
jump to). It most likely goes in the 2nd sector of flash
(0x10C08000--after the remap by the memory controller). What concerns
me more is if there is some magic number or (worse) checksum stored
somewhere in rom that the bootloader uses to verfiy there's a legit OS
image in flash. I REALLY don't want to reverse engineer the bootloader
Can anyone help me out on this?

You might find something of use from LinuxDA, which had Linux running on
a Palm IIIxe.
