Depthcharge is a toolkit designed to support security research and "jailbreaking" of embedded platforms using the U-Boot bootloader. It consists of:
More information can be found in the online documentation for the Depthcharge project.
The Depthcharge source repository contains two primary branches:
main- The latest release. This corresponds to what is available on PyPi
next- "Bleeding edge" changes scheduled for inclusion in the next release.
At each release, the contents of next are merged to main and tagged accordingly.
Under some circumstances, selected fixes may be merged to main in order publish an interim patch release.
Depthcharge uses a Semantic versioning scheme for both the Python API and the Companion Firmware. The version number for published releases will follow that of the Python API version. The CHANGELOG shall document the current version state of both, along with any compatibility information.
Currently, this project uses "unstable" version numbers; API-breaking changes may occur within this minor version series, if deemed to be sufficiently beneficial for the future of the project. Refer to the CHANGELOG for guidance on handling any API changes.
Each published release will have a "codename". This serves no real purpose, other than to amuse the author and add a little fun to preparing releases. (Maybe they'll even be useful to remember!) The codenames are song titles from punk bands, increasing alphabetically with each release.
