Ok, so I'm not content to let Tesla dictate what I can and can not do with my own property. They are not a regulatory body, and they also have no contract with me saying that they have control over my property. Many people have told me to shut up and bow down to the Tesla overlords, and how dare I question anything they ever do. This thread is not for those people. If you are one of those people, do us all a favour, stop reading now, and go elsewhere. I don't want your replies, and I will not engage you in this thread. This thread is for those who believe they should have the right to tinker with their cars, just like every single other car ever built. Several people have got root access to their cars, but none so far have been willing to give back to the community and help others do the same. In any other enthusiast forum this would be unheard of, but it seems to be the norm around here. I intend to change this. I won't be posting enough detail for people with no knowledge of electronics or computers to hack their car, but I will be posting enough for anyone "skilled in the art" to follow in my footsteps. I don't know if I'll succeed, but I will try, and I welcome anyone with helpful and constructive input to post their insights. I also welcome anyone with an interest in this, and an intermediate knowledge of electronics, linux, and computer networking to come along for the ride. My next post in this thread will explain what I know so far, and where I will start. Then we'll go from there.
