Lightbulb IDA Pro - New ARM decompiler

I don't know who can be interested in that (for me it's a nice news!) but IDA developers will release con an ARM decompiler. You can look at a preview here:

Cheers,

I am sure that when this thing is released, many shops that make big money off unlocking mobile phones will be buying copies to aid with finding unlock tricks for the newest phones.

And when it eventually leaks, iPhone OS jail-breakers and hackers will be using it to hack the device even more (for jail-breaks, unlocks etc)

With the number of devices running ARM chips (and the large amount of those devices which are locked down in various ways), I am sure that this new tool will be a hit.

I wonder how different this is to just using IDA 5.5 + HR Decompiler?

EDIT: Errm, ignore me. Current HR Decompiler only support x86. Doh!

Yeah, maybe we could open a new forum discussing embedded hacking?

Deeply-embedded software these days doesn't use any anti- method.
But, I'm quite interested in it. (After all, their code is in flash, and ARM is a RISC.
And RAM is limited.)

Time ago, I've integrated a library for DVB descrambling running on an ARM based processor. All names and strings are obfuscated (even thread names) and it add many anti-debugging tricks like RDTSC equivalent instruction. I've tried debugging it remotely using a gdb client but it always detect my debugging session.
On the other side, I've worked on projects (embedded linux) where companies linked their executable against libraries with debug symbols included (not stripped and with -g or -ggdb flags activated) and they are not aware of the security risk.

Cheers
