You claimed that it isn't possible for software to access the ROM and that only
hardware reads it on boot AND that the ROM "decides" (to use your words) what
is accessible and what is not. After that, you claimed that dumping the kickstart
is not possible without external hardware.
*ALL* of the above are wrong...
Let me C&P some stuff you wrote...

I don't think you seem to realize how a ROM works. Only the hardware can read from it which it does when booting up, everything else rus ontop of it but that doesn't mean all applications has access directly to the information stored in the ROM directly. Only the ROM itself decides which information is available to the applications. In order to get the information in the ROM, the information needs to be dumped somewhere (normally in RAM or on the HD), accessing it directly is impossible.
Think of the ROM as when you launch an application, what is available to you is only the running process, not the actual ROM file.
BEEP! All wrong.
How can a piece of software dump this ROM as it appears to be "directly impossible" according to this post ?

Through some kind of special interface linked to the ROM itself whereby its internal code can then be "dumped".

Besides, if this was true, that it's mapped into physical RAM, then why do applications like Blizzkick exist at all?
To allow the ROM to be RELOCATABLE to RAM, that is, for applications to be able
to actually find it, after it's in RAM.

BTW: Yes, patching the ROM is illegal as well.
Beep, no it's not, it's perfectly legal.
I won't go on... You posted WAY too much nonsense there... That's not one minor
technical detail, you got the whole concept wrong and kept spreading your clueless arguements. Face it... You're incompetent.
Almost nothing you said was valid. More precisely... *NOTHING* technical you
said was more than 1% valid. What does this show?
