Assembly Programming in Pine64

Getting assembly level programming info for something closed source like the Mali 400, you can probably forget that. Not trying to sound discouraging just dont want you to get surprised.

You've hit the nail on the head with that statement. Bare Metal programming is possible on any system, and I've used assembler on ARM since the Archimedes days. But without knowing how the memory controller, video controller and all the other hardware is addressed by the CPU it will be difficult to do anything.

I do disagree about how many people would be interested in doing this though, there are lot of metal heads out there.....
