Disassembly bug with LDR addresses

Postby Siguza » Mon Apr 18, 2016 4:36 pm

jtool and disarm both disassemble LDR addresses to 1/4 of what they should be.

bash$ cat one.S
ldr w0, #4
bash$ aarch64-elf-as -o one.o one.S
bash$ aarch64-elf-objcopy -O binary one.o one.b
bash$ disarm one.b
0x00000000 0x18000020 LDR W0, #1

bash$ cat two.S
.section __TEXT,__text,regular,pure_instructions
.ios_version_min 9, 3
.globl _main
.align 2
ldr w0, #4
bash$ xcrun -sdk iphoneos as -arch arm64 -o two.o two.S
bash$ xcrun -sdk iphoneos ld -arch arm64 -ios_version_min 9.3 -L$iSDK/usr/lib -lSystem -o two two.o
bash$ jtool -d two

Thank you! Noted and fixed. Needed a <<2 there.

Reason why jtool/disarm report same is because they are both compiled with same library.

Updates to both coming soon
