 Hello!
I'm trying to guess what are the files that contain the low level code
of the boot.img/recovery.img images. I tried modifying the .S files in
the sub folders of "/bootable/bootloader/legacy/", but after a re-
compilation the boot image are exactly the same as before my edits to
the file(s) (Checked with shasum before & after the re-compilation).
Also, I'm trying to avoid a "make clean", because a full compilation
takes me about 3.5 hours :(

Thank you very much!

 kR105,

boot.img = boot header + Linux kernel + ramdisk/rootfs
system.img = Android user space applications and libraries

 Oh *thank you*!.. I was confused with the "boot" word.

BTW, do you know for what are used the files *.S in the "bootable" folder?

 No idea.
I find only init.S, maybe it's the initialize before bootloader starts
