    Well? It would be nice if there was a subforum for more advanced iPod enthusiasts/developers to discuss ARM Assembly, decompiling, reversing, etc.

    Please take it into consideration : )

    Thanks.

    We don't have an excess of experienced iPhone developers, forget about assembly programmers.

    That said, I myself am interested in this, and I'm sure others are as well, but the demand is not nearly significant to warrant the creation of sub-forum.

    If you have anything to post about ARM assembly, reversing, or anything of that nature, post it in the "regular" development section.

    As I said before, this is cool stuff, and pertinent information is hard to find, so it would be great to share some knowledge here.

    Yeah, I see what you mean. But don't you think that it would be of more use than some subforums that aren't used at all? I mean, there are plenty of subforums that never have posts, so yeah I don't see how one more could hurt. Plus adding an ARM Assembly forum may possibly bring back some developers who have left IPTF for various reasons. You are correct, it is hard to find pertinent information. That's why I hope that bgizzle includes this : )

    I'm not against the creation of the sub-forum; I am an advocate, but only if a need exists. I suggest we get some lively discussions going, and if its sustainable and there is sufficient interest, bgizzle can create the sub-forum and we relocate.

    Just discuss it in the general development section. If there is heavy activity on this topic a section will be created.

    IMO, the only use for disassemble code is to hack games and whatnot

    if this was made then hacks would become more available and might ruin gaming to some

    Your opinion is fairly narrow then.

    But this would be a low-level development section, as in directly communicating with hardware, opening up possibilities for major advances in third party development.


    Nothing to do with hacking 'games and whatnot'.

    That would be interesting, although if the idea does pull through perhaps to appeal to the less experienced there could be informational posts.
