BoostedBreak – The Boosted Board Reverse Engineering Project

Overview

BoostedBreak aims to be a comprehensive reverse-engineering project for Boosted Board products, created by axkrysl47.

Currently, BoostedBreakCAN is the first and only project under BoostedBreak – more projects to come later.

BoostedBreak was made as an attempt to be a spiritual successor to rscullin’s BeamBREak project.

BoostedBreakCAN

BoostedBreakCAN is the latest reverse-engineering breakdown of Boosted’s CAN protocol that exists between V2/3 batteries & electronic speed controllers.

(A special credit goes to David Wang, founder of XR General Hospital, who helped source me the parts I needed to get this project off the ground.)

Latest Release – v0.0.1

v0.0.1 is the initial published release of BoostedBreakCAN, a Visual Studio C++ project that interfaces with a PCAN-USB adapter from PEAK-System.

What’s Next…

BoostedBreakCAN

I (axkrysl47) am currently in the process of acquiring more Boosted products for testing. I will be sure to update BoostedBreakCAN with any new findings I make.

Further, the SRB and XRB emulators, as well as ‘brief mode’, are not yet implemented and will require a good amount of effort to complete. If there is high enough demand, I can look to push those up my task list.

BoostedBreakBLE

As soon as I acquire another remote for testing, I plan to start BoostedBreakBLE to attempt to reverse-engineer Boosted’s Bluetooth protocol that exists between V2/3 electronic speed controllers & remotes.

Finally…
