that depends on which part of the hw.
most of the generic soc is kinda 'public documented' anyways.

the gsm modem and the gps in case of gta01 for example will need to stay
blackboxes for what i know.

i do not really know what you mean.
our policy for hw-informations needs to differ depending on the
questions you're asking (due to 3rd parties).

so it was much easier and less time consuming to document whats
obviously of interest and let the rest open for 'on request'.
if you want to do a exact and detailed photostory, draw stuff and do
proper documentation and so on, be sure nobody will stop you aslong as
you try to keep gps and gsm a 'blackbox'. in the end people without a
high-end-lab can't do much with the pure hw of a 'well-hung' gsm chipset.
in case you're unsure if one should publish a specific information, just
ask. we do not bite
