while helping someone here on the boards I ended up thinking about secure boot, and though not related to the issue at hand (im fairly sure its not a windows RT device) but this question is about specifically the windows RT, an arm device where secureboot is locked, I assume that it would be ungood to discuss the hows of unlocking the secureboot on these devices?

djdunn,

The Gentoo Foundation is registered in New Mexico, in the USA.
Gentoo is therefore subject to American Law, even though the Forums are not currently hosted in the USA.

I'm sure there are laws in place that make discussing circumventing secure boot illegal, in the USA anyway.
Unless one of our American admins (I'm English) says differently, its something we will discourage, to comply with Amerian law.

Of course, an soon as secure boot has been broken, it will be all over the web, weather its discussed here or not.
Much like DVD region encoding.

thanks Neddy

it hasn't really been an issue since it only gets locked in the "enabled" position on the windows rt machines, apparattly they didn't really sell many of them.
