    I don't believe that you can modify COD files. As for SFI files I will leave that to the master of masters to address

    You can modify cod files, but you would need a decompiler first.

    which essentially means... building hybrids would mean selecting right number of relevant files from each os... and putting them together in the most suitable ratio...
    i'm almost sure there is some editing or modification done... !!!
    i just want to know if they use any tool ...

    I would recommend not manipulating the cod files or the sfi. It would only cause problems.

    Yes, they can be modified. But I think from what I have read, they will not load to a device. The digital signatures of the files prevent modified files from being recognized through DM loader. I think?

    If BBC says not to manipulate them I would leave it at that IMO.

    You are correct Shanepark, if you decompile the cod you corrupt the digital sig and therefore they would not be allowed to load to the device. Hence problems!

    there is also a checksum file issue that needs to be decrypted. Not all lines of code have a valid checksum. Why? this is where the encryption comes in

    tried working on this a couple years ago and trust me it has only gotten better

    the digital sig can be recreated

    that wold explain why, when I tried to change, (read delete) the shutter sound from the camera .cod file, it wouldn't load, and reverted to the earlier file.Hmmmm, gotta work on it s'more....
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?
