I hope you may see the viewpoint that if it cannot be done by hand and
if it is too obscure that it defeats itself by principle. In my
opinion every user with average building skills should be able to do
it. I was programming in machine language on 65C02 CPU back in time,
and by using BASIC, I could peek and poke with memory and enter
machine instructions, and program games and software for advertising
this way.

May I again ask, if possible, please define the very first step, or
point to documentation that I can understand how to start with the
very first step, so that this steap is clear and becomes transparent
by all means. 

I have downloaded stage0-Release_0.4.0, is that the very first step?

Is the file stage0_monitor.hex0 the very first step?
