If raspberry pi puts the binary blob on a rom, does it means that never
will be possible to free raspberry pi?

I'll like to help you with a device, but money is not my strength.

I'm working on a device that a friend let me use with the condition that I
develop something useful or interesting for him, of course, I'm trying to
hack it meanwhile.
