Reverse Engineering Platform
« on: February 18, 2020, 02:07:32 pm »
Hello,
I was wondering is there a unified platform where people can post reverse engineered products?

I'm asking because these days I was trying to repair an iHealth Edge "smartwatch". The problem with it was a unsuccessful firmware update, making it bootloop. I was thinking that maybe there are some hardware problems, like dead battery since there were some mobiles that would have similar behavior. Upon opening and inspecting it, the only problem is the software. I contacted the company and they showed me the middle finger.

I'm diverging from the main question. The fact that I liked is that I was able to disassemble the device easily thanks to https://www.ifixit.com/ , the style of "guides" that they have are very clear opposed to forum style that I could find on reverse engineering.

If there isn't such a platform, I'd be happy to make one.

Even if you don't know of such platforms, I'd be happy to listen to your opinion on creating such a platform.

Isn't iFixit itself such a platform? They even have a section for tear downs.

In a way you're right, however what I meant is reverse engineer of circuits, firmware. A great example would be BigClive channel.
