For whoever knows this... (i tried on the development forum but no one answered, so here it goes...)

I've got this file called 2309osos.fw . I need to disassemble it but when i try to the dissasembler gives me a "this is not a valid win32 application" error. So i opened it with notepad and read the first couple of lines which read "If you wish to dissasemble this file for reverse-engineering purposes please chop off the first 512bytes before loading it into your dissasembler".

Question: how do i "chop off" the first 512bytes? this question may be stupid i don't know, im fairly new to this.

I'm not smart enough to give you the correct answer, but what I would do is save the original file so it's safe, and actually edit 512 bytes off in notepad retrying each one. Hopefully, someone who knows what you are doing will answer with better help.

Ok, i got it, all i did was load it into a hex editor go to line 512 and chop off everything from there up. Know i need to decrypt it but can you guys help or does G2G's Terms of use prohibit that??

More than likely it is at this point as you haven't given much info about what the file is, why you are disassembling/decrypting it, etc., etc.. Hard to make a decision on so little information. Or at least info I don't have.
