There's no real benefit to having an entirely custom bootcode over a slightly patched TI bootcode, at least in terms of custom OSes. It's like nine bytes difference to disable all OS validation checks. You also couldn't load any OS you wanted - most operating systems rely on processor features like virtual address spaces to run processes, so you could probably only run OSes specifically designed for embedded systems.
So does this mean stuff like Alpine Linux or really smally versions of linux could run with some hacking?
