Beginning with an issue [boot loader]
I began developing the boot loader about a week ago. I read the tutorials on BrokenThorn and followed the examples given, yet I’ve been having trouble with the code of the boot loader. Perhaps it is a consequence of my neglect to read and understand what parts of the code do. Instead, I wanted to jump to the kernel code, because I was excited to have some sort of substance to call “my” OS. But with that mentality, I’ve come to realize that I need to take a slow pace and learn as I progress.
Nonetheless, my problem still exists. The only solution I have is to do what every other developers before me have done: by trial and error! Among the next few days, I will spend some time investigating boot loaders, understanding code snippets, write my own boot loader and keeping updates on my progress.

Jailbreaking, Rooting, Bootloader Unlocking Phone Is NOT Illegal!
There has been tons of missinformation swarming the inter webs as of late! Tonight at dinner i over heard someone from the table behind me say to someone else at the same table “Didya know that it is now illegal to Jailbreak your phone?”. My wife also overheard it and could tell that I was a little more than uncomfortable as I was squirming trying not to turn around and let them have it. She told me that she had heard it. I then said in a fairly audible voice, “They are misinformed! Jailbreaking is not Illegal!” The Library of Congress ruled under the DMCA back in October of 2012 that it should be illegal to Unlock your phone from your carrier without their permission. They extended a 90 day grace period so that anyone would be able to unlock their phone from their carrier. This grace period has now ended. It is now Illegal to Unlock your phone from the carrier that you purchased the phone from without first getting their approval. This has nothing to do with Jailbreaking, Rooting, or Bootloader Unlocking which are all still very much LEGAL! This is still not the best news. If you want to go to another carrier even if the phone was bought out right and you own it you won’t be able to do so without first getting the approval to unlock the phone from that carrier. Also it will now be illegal to unlock your phone to use it on overseas networks. Instead you will be required to roam. This could also affect the resale value of your phone. So sound off below what are your thoughts on the Library of Congress ruling? http://droidmodderx.com/jailbreaking-rooting-bootloader-unlocking-phone-is-not-illegal/
