This tutorial will help you build a custom Linux distribution for your IoT/Embedded project using Buildroot (i.e: a Raspberry Pi). There are some other options out there but I find Buildroot to be consistent and easy enough so we’ll stick to it for the propose of this article.
Buildroot is a community-driven and open-source set of tools that will help you generate an entire root file system that you can then flash into a device.
It can build toolchains, rootfs, bootloaders, kernels and libraries all by its own.
You can read more about it on its official page:
To start with Buildroot you can download the proper version from the official page and access the official documentation uing the following links. …
The Game Boy uses a 8-bit computer chip similar to an Intel 8080. As it has only 256 instructions it’s an interesting candidate for experiments such as writing an assembler from scratch — and that’s what this article is about.
Here I’ll describe the process I went through when I wrote this Game Boy assembler in Node.js.
In case you want to try it just issue the following:
# option 1: using npm
npm install -g game-boy-assembler# option 2: using docker
docker run -ti alanvivona/gameboy
Now let’s jump into the process of writing such a thing!
The first thing we need is to analyze the instruction set and write a list of them. I extracted the instructions from this awesome manual and generated a file as the one you can see in the screenshot below. …
Today we are going to generate a simple keygen to crack this beautiful crackme named “Get The Password”. Here’s the beast:
Cool graph, isn’t it?
In the top part we can see there’s a pattern, right here:
So, what’s going on here? Well, basically…
cl is being used as an index, compared against a hardcoded value which increments each time (0,1,2..9) …
