Introduction

The goal of this project is to gather information about the Reciva 'Barracuda' radio module, in order to understand enough of the hardware to be able to provide alternative firmware. We are not interested in reverse-engineering or hacking the Reciva applications, only in running our own software on the device.

I'm an embedded firmware engineer, and I'm planning to spend some time on this project to see how hard it would be to get my own software up and running on the Barracuda hardware. If you think you can add anything to this project, feel free to use this wiki to share your information: add and edit!
