Hi,

I'm a highschool freshman that Is starting to Tinker with everything. I have some basic knowledge of electronics, software, computers, and random crap. I have been reading the hacked gadgets Feed for quite awhile learning as I get inspired. I mainly do something based off of someone else's work and build off of that or I conglomerate more work into one. i joined this forum to try to receive help for current and future projects and try to help others.

My dream is so one day all software is open-source and requires attribution.

welcome to the forums.

Thats pretty much the same way I started, working off of something, making a small improvement, or following a step by step guide and making a bunch of improvements along the way. Everyone needs to start somewhere. Glad to have you onboard.

So far I have installed rockbox on my sansa e260 (way too easy),
USB fan(almost as easy as the sansa) , simple portable usb charger(regulator and a 9v), and a frets on fire (open-source guitar hero clone) guitar which was the purpose of joining to get some help. I probably did a lot more simple mods just making things function to my liking.

I have also done a lot of quick software mods and I attempted to install linux on my ps2, but I couldn't find enough information about a boot loader or actually anything for that matter since I never did have an official HDD kit.

So really I never really did anything that I would say the average person can't do, but I'm working on learning more to do something a little challenging.
