    thank you for your time godsend85, i've had a look and spoken to xsacha and seems the bootloader is in a ROM on the OMAP processor itself.

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to swap out the memory chip on a 16gb from a non-booting/5 blink 32gb, provided the right tools and skills were available or is there something on the OMAP that has the size "hard-wired"?

    As I recall, the memory is tightly bonded to the underside of the CPU, or vice versa. If that's true, you don't have the right tools or skills. Nobody here does. ;-)

    vice versa, but its ram top bonded to a 4430, the mem is down board a little , but today's electronics are Ball Grid Aray bonded (solder balls, generally 200 to 1500+ balls)
