Can we also keep a PDF backup of it in the CRCEKL?

I immediatly changed the core android to the barebone version provided by the manufacturer..So I started to investivate,first things first what do I need to program in asm for ths processor,ie wtf pickle sauce....

http://mobile.arm.com/products/processors/classic/arm11/index.php?tab=Specifications

And for those wanting more here is a pdf I dld that gos well with this.

Apparently can't uploadwith current setof tools from pda...This works though..

Regardless some of the features of the processor vastly interest me,also opcode spec for the instruction sets would be nice addition..

These pages were of great help when I took an ARM course at university:

http://www.ee.ic.ac.uk/pcheung/teaching/ee2_computing/
http://www.heyrick.co.uk/assembler/

Some stuff will be already known to you but the ARM specific stuff is good.
I'd also recommend getting a copy of Steve Furber's "ARM System-on-chip Architecture" it's like the ARM bible.
An instruction set is also available at the pages.
