Hey goat

I don't know of any tuts offhand, but I did find some info on MS's site.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/embedded/ce/guide/processors/all.asp -> lists all supported processors
http://developerstore.com/devstore/product.asp?productID=7568&store=TOOLBOX_NA -> order form for eval version of the development kit for CE
(includes a debugger)
BTW... find me on IRC or icq sometime!

Hey goatass..
There is stuff about WinCE cracking out there..
Remember Ghiri's strainer a couple of years ago?
Well, he wrote some stuff about WinCE reversing..
I'll check my hd and let you know.
Bye now!

Hello mate!
i've just returned from a long journey into my Hd..
and guess what?
I found a bunch of stuff that can be considered collector's items nowadays since Ghiribizzo's page has been down for quite a long time.
I once had downloaded all of +Ghiri's site and now i'm the happy owner of his leet stuff
Not only that, but i found lots of info about coding and developing on the CE platform.
All this stuff was downloaded a couple of years ago, this means that there must be some more updated stuff. But as starters, this is more than what you need.
The whole package is about 40 megabytes. If we chop down the devel stuff we get a 1 or 2 megs weight.
What should i do? mail? ftp?
You tell me.
Bye goatass.

I only have once CE target behind me, but I will mention the sole difficulty I had (apart from the normal wierdness I seem to suffer).

That was getting info on the Hitachi SH3 processor found in the HP Jordanas.

It's all well and good being able to dissassemble it with IDa, but WTF is the hex representation of the change I want to make

Apart from that it went pretty much like any normal Win32 target.

If somebody wants to cover the Win CE scene, i reccomend getting some processor documentation online first.

hey guys thanks for the help, Killby I have the HP Jornada 548 and I'm trying to learn to crack/code programs for it. I'll look around for some info on processors and post them for people to check out.

Latigo I will e-mail you now and I'll put up my personal ftp server for you to dump it on there and if you don't mind I'll post it for others to check out. Only with your permission that is
