Boot1 is held in ROM, which is currently impossible to modify.

That is all. Well, actually, that's a lie. TI has them, but we don't advocate... retrieving... them.

Given the current 2048 bit keys and classical computations, the scale of the problem is vastly more difficult than even the largest keys broken today (768 bits). By vast, I mean volume of the known universe measured in nanometers cubed vast*. The chance that anyone will solve it is so exceedingly slim that the only mathematical tool I have available to calculate it has to work with arbitrary precision operations simply in order to present it. Unless someone gets their hands on a massive quantum computer running Shor's algorithm**, it is, in short, an impossible problem.*Even this is an understatement.**It'd take about 30 seconds for a quantum computer to break the code, since the computations necessary increase according to (lg n)^3 for an n bit key.
