Woah, pretty cool, is it an amnesic OS too? What are the main differences? Just that you need 2FA to log in? I didn't understand the hardware part. Why did you break a resistor? Do you have to sold your components in something really specific in order to use it or what?

Except for the when I broke off one of the 0.3 mm resistors to the left of the chip and had to hand solder that back on. Be careful about those. :/

Also, do you mind if I copy paste this into the PTio forum? I'll give you the credits. Ima create a GH issue to see if they can list it, it will help with the development which seems a bit dead now.

Nope! It’s actually a bios replacement. So it’s mostly related to tails in that it’s a tool for securing your computer. It’s based on coreboot so looking into that could give you some insight.

To respond about the resistor and the soldering thing. I was just being clumsy with the soic chip flasher. And then had to clean up after myself. I’d love a link to the forum first, if you don’t mind.

Look into coreboot and check out some of the links. I think a lot of your questions will be answered that way. :)

Oohh, so Heads can work with different OSes? This is really interesting, I'll try to read a bit about coreboot and see if I can understand something.

Yeah, still no idea about what that means, I lack the knowledge, lol.
