asciilifeform: fromloper: your probe works
asciilifeform: you may have to update gcc though
asciilifeform: ( you need the one from 2014 , no earlier )
fromloper: If I run sage_pill again, it seems to show the old CRCs and lets me update again?
asciilifeform: unplug the probe and plug back in
asciilifeform: what fw ver was on it before you ran 1st time ?
asciilifeform: fromloper: also please do as ben_vulpes described, and paste the barf in the paster
fromloper: (and gcc)
asciilifeform: you want 7.8 or above
fromloper: One moment.. seeing if I can scrollback that far
fromloper: Spew for current version: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/umk7h/?raw=true
asciilifeform: is this from the first run ?
fromloper: Looks like the original has scrolled off, so I don't know
fromloper: No, rerun
asciilifeform: anyway this is proper
asciilifeform: 'old' is the fw image
asciilifeform: it gets patched to match the hardware id of your box
asciilifeform: you have a cured probe, enjoy
asciilifeform: update your gdb and follow the examples on my www.
fromloper: Thank so much. Do you know if there is a bypass for the EDK?
asciilifeform: ( sagepill.py always breaks off, because the probe resets!! )
asciilifeform: probably i ought to add this to the article.
fromloper: Should the probes normal startup status be blinking?
asciilifeform: as for edk, it is garbage and i never use it, so i have nfi
asciilifeform: it's java liquishit
asciilifeform: decompiles ok , though, so you can crack it without breaking a sweat if you felt like it.
asciilifeform: i posted the raw command set, theoretically you can use entirely straight gdb for any conceivable use of the box.
fromloper: Ahh just say the manual you posted, thanks. That was my main concern (power, etc) for the edk
fromloper: Now to see if I can find a gdb that works ;-)
asciilifeform: fromloper: out of curiosity, hiw didja find the pill, and for what do you use the probe??
fromloper: Found though google. My main use for the probe is to have a cheap x86 JTAG device for VMM development
asciilifeform: which board are you using ?
fromloper: The Gizmo Explorer that came with the probe. In theory it supports AMDs VMM extensions
asciilifeform: it does.
mircea_popescu: fromloper consider getting a proper name / registering your pgp key with deedbot while at it.
fromloper: Also looking at trying to get a Skylake/Kabylake with DCI enabled (JTAG over USB) since that just requires a USB 3 debug cable. The Intel NUC's have a bios setting "Silicon Debug Feature" but although it sets the debug MSR, it doesn't appear to set the PCH register correctly, and the PCH register is locked by the time it gets out of BIOS.
asciilifeform: funnily enough, #trilema is wuite likely world's largest sageprobe user group today
asciilifeform: !!up fromloper
mircea_popescu: well, at least as far as non-whispering/public
mod6: sounds like what i'm tryin to get into
asciilifeform: fromloper: intel is mostly a waste of time imho
fromloper: There is a bug in Gigabyte's NUCs where they left DCI half enabled. Unfortuntly I bricked the one I had.
asciilifeform: their debug isn't fully out of band, hostile os (e.g. winblows) can interfere
fromloper: Because it had intel bootguard and didn't like my customized bios
mircea_popescu: they actually brick the board ?!
asciilifeform: fromloper: pull the chip and reflash
fromloper: Yep, no recovery possible.
mircea_popescu: that seems improbable. tried what he said ?
asciilifeform: ( if it's soldered down, use a crocodile )
fromloper: Chip was soldered on and it's within Amazon's 30 day so easier to return and get one without vPro
mircea_popescu: ah i guess there's thart
asciilifeform: even if they actually take back mutilated boards -- this promises to be slow
asciilifeform: get a rom burner and crocodile clip like normal people
fromloper: I tried seeing if I could reprogram it via a TL866a but VCC isn't wired for in system programming and I didn't want to cut the trace on a system I might need to return
asciilifeform: usually works anyway
mircea_popescu: you don't have to cut the trace do you ?
asciilifeform: trick is: gotta power up the board
asciilifeform: then chip is alive
asciilifeform: forget the burner's vcc.
fromloper: I powered it up, which got rid of the overcurrent error, but it couldn't read the chip. Maybe a bad clip and or the TL866a isn't up to the task. Kind of a novice at these things.
asciilifeform: either bad clip, or you out it backwards.
fromloper: I tried both ways :-/
asciilifeform: pro tip: don't buy board with soldered rom
asciilifeform: and if for some peculiar reason you ~must~ -- pull it off and replace with socket
mircea_popescu: they've been moving that way slowly but surely hm.
ben_vulpes: forgive me but what is a vcc?
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: +
fromloper: I believe USB DCI is only on their Skylake+ U-Series chips which are geared towards mobile and those tend to have soldered SOP8s since they tend to either be laptops or NUCs
fromloper: The ideal will be if Intel fixes their BIOS, because then it would be a supported option on a mainstream system.
asciilifeform: for the reason described earlier, i have 0 interest in intel's debug
mircea_popescu: not like it got broken accidentally.
asciilifeform: so cannot help there.
fromloper: Do you avoid Intel all together then or have another recommendation for low level debug?
asciilifeform: hardware ice is useful precisely because os has no say in whether it gets debugged
asciilifeform: avoid intel
asciilifeform: it won't work for your purpose. and the docs are very, very thin.
asciilifeform: and full of disinfo.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: aha ty
fromloper: Ahh. Well no choice if I want to use intel's VMX instrutions but to use intel. Just trying to avoid having to spend $3000 for the standard ITP-XDP device and needing special expensive boards with an XDP port.
mircea_popescu: what is his purpose ?
asciilifeform: their soft is winblows-only, also
asciilifeform: and why the fuck would you use intel-only opcodes.
mircea_popescu: http://qntra.net/2017/05/usg-asset-gavin-andresen-pretends-to-meaningfully-inspect-your-random/#comment-95936 << am i thick or is the guy entirely ignoring the quote.
fromloper: I have NDA access, so I have slightly better documentation (but still shit and incomplete). Business decision. Intel only because that's where 95% of the market is. Also easier to do security research on ME and AMT if you can step through, which needs JTAG as well.
asciilifeform: fromloper: if you paid for the seekrit docs , ask ~them~ for support, not me.
asciilifeform: i have 0 seekrit docs.
mircea_popescu: but why ? he just wants to, and you seem to be free! and the market ended up 95% usg for entirely unrelated reasons.
fromloper: NDA doesn't cost anything. You just need to be a company.
asciilifeform: ( and come to think of it, dun recall being paid )
BingoBoingo: seekrit docs just have more frustrating disinfo
mircea_popescu: fromloper why'd you make any promises to those assholes ?
fromloper: I'm not paid. It's my own startup. Other than the sage thing, wasn't specifically asking for help just discussing.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, MOS 6502 does all the computing necessary for most purposes
fromloper: mircea, because their public docs are shit and NDA just means I want share their secret shit. It's not a big deal to me.
BingoBoingo: But you don't get the good seekrit shit
asciilifeform: fromloper: and you wonder why the public tools are shit, and you're stuck with winblows idiocy ?
mircea_popescu: hey, the miracles of reification.
fromloper: I'm at an inital research stage at this point if it pans out they have a heavier NDA and you can buy the private tools. At this point I'm just doing proof of concept so I don't want to invest too much if it doesn't pan out.
asciilifeform: humour my curiosity-- what's a 'heavier nda' ?
fromloper: Their private debugger is $5k a year though.
asciilifeform: if you like spending money, as it seems you do, why not buy arium's -- 35k/yr
mircea_popescu: and it still doesn't work worth a shit.
fromloper: They have a "restricted" level NDA which is above the normal. You need to acually talk to people about your project insead of just signing up a webform. I'll look at Arium / Lauterbauch / Intel PDT if I get past POC and find some investors ;-)
asciilifeform: fromloper: and when intel steals your project, then what.
fromloper: If I liked spending money I wouldn't be worrying about getting the $15 debug cable to work or an abandoned $200 probe.
mircea_popescu: hey, maybe intel capital invests. acquihire cheaper for them than actually hiring and they've been doing all that song and dance about hiring in the us.
asciilifeform: it so happens that the abandoned 200 box is the only one that works.
asciilifeform: i.e. runs with plain gdb, and 0 winblows liquishitware and nda.
asciilifeform: and isn't overruleable by microshit os.
asciilifeform: !!up fromloper
fromloper: Unfortuatly potential customers are most likely using Intel + Microsoft. Also in US we have Trump now. World sucks, but still need to live in it.
fromloper: This is all really my attempt at having to avoid working for someone else again.
mircea_popescu: how's it coming along ?
asciilifeform: funnily enough i have an intel xdp probe and even one of their seekrit dev boxes (complete with 'not for sale' sticker)
asciilifeform: but 0 software.
ben_vulpes: in other reversing adventures: https://arxiv.org/abs/1704.07715
asciilifeform: because of schmucks who all honoured their pact with hitler
asciilifeform: and won't release docs.
asciilifeform: so the amount of sympathy i have, is 0.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes actually the time symmetry approach is very intelligent.
fromloper: You can get a trial of System Studio which comes with System Debugger. System Debugger sucks, but the debug layer is there underneath in python and C#, so you have pretty direct access to JTAG if you want to RE it.
fromloper: The ptsecurity guys did a talk on it.
asciilifeform: fromloper: and driver for probe where ?
fromloper: Driver comes with System Studio (which is free trial)
mircea_popescu: https://github.com/hannorein/rebound << better link
asciilifeform: fromloper: this ain't the xdp one
asciilifeform: but the winblows-disableable usb3 debugger

asciilifeform: nah, rectangular box
asciilifeform: xdp 1.
BingoBoingo: fromloper: Anyways prolly more money in debugging John Deere's firmware than Intel's
asciilifeform: fromloper: it ^
fromloper: I don't think the current version does anymore. All the FPGA images are XDP3 or XDP4. I know older versions of System Debugger had support for older XDPs. If you have a student email you can get System Studio for free and it has access to older versions which might support it.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: my box came with no disk.
fromloper: asciilifeform. Thanks again so much for your help and hard work on fixing the probe.
asciilifeform: nor does intel's downloadable crippleware, support it
mircea_popescu: yes. his idea is, and perhaps not without merit, that by getting the bundle he names you might be able to salvage a driver.
mircea_popescu: either out of the box or with some minimal assembly at home.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this, tried. fail.
mircea_popescu: ah, ok. that's what i was asking.
BingoBoingo: fromloper: You'd be surprised. Many people want out of John Deere's rootkit so that they can fix their tractor cost less than $newtractor
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: back when i actually gave a shit, i looked for a copy of the relevant shitware. never found.
fromloper: Bingo, I'm not saying there isn't a market, but it's not really where my interest is. The ideal is to find interest and market fit. If it was just about money I would just go work for google.
asciilifeform: today i give ~0 shits re intel.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i've long wanted to design a ~new~ 68k box.
asciilifeform: with, say, 16 of'em
asciilifeform: but -- 0 supply.
BingoBoingo: pop them out of performas? Or did performas get expensive?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: how many grid chips have you personally desoldered ?
asciilifeform: hiw many worked after ?
asciilifeform: what would you charge for this process ?
fromloper: There are open source FPGA 68ks that are pretty small. You might be able to fit 16 on a relatively small one.
BingoBoingo: none, I thought that's why god invented chinamen
asciilifeform: fromloper: problem is, there ain't a usable fpga
asciilifeform: all want shitware.
mircea_popescu: what, reflow oven burns the chips ?
ben_vulpes: fromloper: but it is about money with the "not wanting to work for other people"
ben_vulpes: muh passions
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one doesn't desolder in an oven. but -- yes.

gabriel_laddel_p: Just wanted to report that I'm in a house with the SSID "Thiel Master", there are no interesting books, the pool is broken, the front yard is destroyed and some idiot was "dirtbiking" on it when I showed up.
gabriel_laddel_p: Walked into the room of the girl I came to see (over here to do laundry) -- absolute squalor. Filth everywhere. Flies.
gabriel_laddel_p: Someone more powerful than me please kill all of these idiots.
gabriel_laddel_p: Real estate in one of the most exclusive / ritzy / whatever zip codes (atherton) and they stock it full of retards.
mircea_popescu: what's a ssid thiel master ?
gabriel_laddel_p: The wifi network name
gabriel_laddel_p: I suppose this one of Thiel's houses
gabriel_laddel_p: IE associated with one of his startups, the "thiel fellows" or something
mircea_popescu: would you think the same if it were "kardabutt" or such ?
mircea_popescu: how can a pool be broken anyway ? someone drove a truck into it ?
gabriel_laddel_p walks out to review
mircea_popescu: i got this poor guy here, cleans the pool every day. (it rains, tropical torrential rain. thing gets washed full of everything. he pickls them back out). whole thing gives me trouble, on one hand i'd like to tell him to nevermind, on the other im not sure it's such a good idea.
gabriel_laddel_p: childrens play equipment (?), broken chairs, the pool itself is full of brown/green alge-water

ben_vulpes: not to give the impression that i think the vpatch in question is particularly useful.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes dude ends up having to pick leaves and shit out
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes here's the thing : without review of what the compiler spits out of it, you can't actually know whether the change won't create a split down the road.

asciilifeform: ( it was dead for about half a day )
phf`: actually come to think of it i've never been to an american house with books either. i think that maybe i just associate with wrong kind of americans?
phf`: oh i lie, i have a friend whose parents are an astrophysicist and a literature something or other phd. they have a hoard (but much smaller hoard than say an equivalent russian botanik family, where the house is nothing but books)
asciilifeform: aha, i've been to professors' houses, typically very spartan, 1 b00k case at most.
phf`: i always imagined that there are houses out there of tenured professors, who like to "appreciate" wine and go to opera and such, they i'm sure have "exquisite" collections
asciilifeform: i haven't yet american with 'wall to wall' b00kz, nope
asciilifeform: and don't expect to.
phf`: it's very odd, considering how much space those mcmansions have. i mean, you could devote a whole room to a library!
asciilifeform always wanted to do this
phf`: move to boingboinglandia, have space for electron microscope also
phf`: errm, bingoboingolandia
asciilifeform: if moving, why not to mircea_popesculandia.
phf`: give it another 6 months before "puerto ricans are unfit for living"
phf`: completely unrelatedly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvUU8joBb1Q
Framedragger: very nice. not a lot of uhh modulation (i guess is the word) possible. but cool
Framedragger: (or hm, not sure.)
phf`: crazy gutta from teh nodick culture
phf`: relatedly back when i was part of a hackerspace we had a visitor from a scandinavia with all kinds of whacky projects like that. part art, part "direct action", part prank. i asked him how he got paid for this, he laughed and said that everything that he does is funded entirely by government grants
phf`: amusingly that was back when the left loved pim fortuyn, who was a homosexual and ran on a platform of transparent government through technology. he was also fiercely anti-muslim and anti-multiculralist.
phf`: he was assassinated by a muslim, roughly the same time when another dutch, theo van gogh got knifed by a muslim for making anti-muslim short movie
phf`: from where i stand, same people who supported pim fortuyn and theo van gogh, i.e. anarchists, leftists, etc. 15 years later are supporting multicultural europe and nodick values. etc.
Framedragger: anarchists? hm.
Framedragger: i guess i need to educate self more. (also, e.g. bakunin called himself "socialist" heh, but that's just change of value of term over time)
Framedragger bbl, sleep
