Safe-T mini Bootloader and Firmware

The Safe-T mini firmware is based on a fork of the proven software by Trezor. The Safe-T mini uses a CrypoMemory (AT88SC0104CA) chip to protect the valuable information stored on the device even better.

How to build the Safe-T mini bootloader and firmware?

  1. Install Docker
  2. git clone
  3. cd safe-t-mcu
  4. ./ BOOTLOADER_TAG FIRMWARE_TAG (where BOOTLOADER_TAG is bl1.5.1 and FIRMWARE_TAG is v1.0.7 for example, if left blank the script builds latest commit in master branch)

This creates the files build/bootloader-BOOTLOADER_TAG.bin and build/safet-FIRMWARE_TAG.bin and prints their fingerprints and sizes at the end of the build log.

Note however that you will not be able to run a firmware built this way using the CRYPTOMEM on a regular device, as the bootloader will drop permissions for unsigned firmware that are needed.

How to build Safe-T mini emulator for Linux?

  1. Install Docker
  2. git clone
  3. cd safe-t-mcu
  4. ./ TAG (where TAG is v1.0.7 for example, if left blank the script builds latest commit in master branch)

This creates binary file build/trezor-emulator-TAG, which can be run and works as a trezor emulator. (Use TREZOR_OLED_SCALE env. variable to make screen bigger.)

The emulator uses the "left" and "right" arrow keys from the keyboard to emulate the device buttons.

How to get fingerprint of firmware signed and distributed by Archos?

  1. Pick version of firmware binary listed on
  2. Download it: wget
  3. Compute fingerprint: tail -c +257 safe-t-mini.bin | sha256sum

Step 3 should produce the same sha256 fingerprint as your local build (for the same version tag). Firmware has a special header (of length 256 bytes) holding signatures themselves, which must be skipped while calculating the fingerprint, that's why tail command has to be used.

How to install custom built firmware?

WARNING: This will erase the recovery seed stored on the device! You should never do this on Safe-T mini that contains coins!

  1. Install python-safet pip3 install safet (more info)
  2. safetctl firmware_update -f build/safet-TAG.bin

Building for development

If you want to build device firmware, make sure you have the GNU ARM Embedded toolchain installed.

  • If you want to build the emulator instead of the firmware, run export EMULATOR=1
  • If you want to build with the debug link, run export DEBUG_LINK=1. Use this if you want to run the device tests.
  • When you change these variables, use script/setup to clean the repository
  1. To initialize the repository, run script/setup
  2. To build the firmware or emulator, run script/cibuild

If you are building device firmware, the firmware will be in firmware/trezor.bin.

You can launch the emulator using firmware/trezor.elf. To use safetctl with the emulator, use safetctl -p udp (for example, safetctl -p udp get_features).
