  • rpi-open-firmware

    Open source VPU side bootloader for Raspberry Pi.

    Sure, and it's been done: https://github.com/christinaa/rpi-open-firmware - but that doesn't involve ThreadX source, just some standard reverse engineering work. ThreadX is really the least interesting part of this whole operation in terms of the Raspberry Pi.

    It's very cool that ThreadX has been open sourced as it offers an additional battle tested and mature alternative to FreeRTOS for new projects, but in terms of reverse engineering or open sourcing the Raspberry Pi VideoCore blob, it's pretty much a non-event IMO.
