That was fast, here is s1axter’s how-to on getting the code off the Esquire E-ink’s PIC…

  • Find a PC with a pic assember on it.
  • Get/borrow/make a ICSP programmer (parallel programmers will work, just lead out the Vdd,Vss,MCLR,CLK,DATA pins.
  • Remove the battery since it is only 3v and most likely you will be using 5v.
  • Hook up the programmer and read the HEX (Code protection is NOT enabled).
  • Disassemble the code using your assembler of choice (mine is gpasm).

Here’s our post with some tidbits too…
