Hp Slate 7 bootloader

Hi,

 

I want to be able to make my own update.zip or customise the one I can download and allow it to change some of the contents on my tablet. 

 

I tried modifying a small line of the latest update.zip, and unfortunately it won't work because the recovery on the bootloader says verification failed.

 

I suspect that the update.zip is signed or something, and I was wondering could I get the key to sign it? That would help me with what I want to do. So, my first question is a request to HP to offer us the key so we can sign our own update.zip and customise our updates ?

 

I also want to be able to load a new bootloader onto the device too if that is possible.

 

Fastboot with ABD tools does not work, and I was wondering did anyone else get it working?

 

I also was thinking is there a way to unlock the bootloader. I want to try some embedded programming, and was thinking of putting webos on it too -- hps open source OS.

 

I was just wondering, the bootloader seems to be the weakest link here. How can I find out more about the bootloader? Is it possible to change?

 

How do I go about that? 

 

I have been playing all day with trying to do this, but no success.
