    What is available about the Passports device drivers?

    I am seriously aware that we are talking about a closed source device, while I guess somebody knows something.

    I am especially interested on keyboard and camera drivers and their specifications.

    Also clear namings of the used (hardware) interfaces, the API`s and everything that is useful to target these parts is helpful to me. Thanks a lot:

    P.S: Thanks on this place to Bla1ze, who mentions about the different sensor chips for the front camera between the initial Passports and the silver edition in his review of the second one. ;)

    I am sure I would have assumed that one is exactly like the other. ^-^

    A quick search showed this.... https://forums.crackberry.com/blackb...rdware-980021/ on some of the major components.

    Drivers... while I've seen a few threads that were considering replacing the SoC and using a new chipsets to install another OS. Never heard of anyone going beyond dreaming. And thus never really have seen anyone tackle trying to come up with specific drivers for these components.

    The current chipset is blocked, yeah?

    So on the existing hardware is no way to install any other OS, even with the correct drivers, yes?

    Correct. All system software requires BlackBerry signatures to install.
