In "Elysium", Carlyle programs this "reboot code". You can see a short sequence of him doing the coding, and I think I recognize Intel 386 assembly language (something like MOV EAX, EBX). Can someone (dis)confirm this? I looked for screenshots or videos of that on the Net, but nada. Anyone?

This question is unfortunately off-topic here because it's an "unimportant trivia question." You should probably grab a screen or copy the code and post it as a language identification question on stackoverflow or some other SE site where there's a better chance of someone recognizing it –  Tom Aug 19 '13 at 22:19
I'm quite positive that it's Assembler, though it's hard to say for which processor family. –  Vedran Šego Aug 19 '13 at 23:07
It is indeed x86 assembly, I confirm this hereby, yet you're not supposed to make any sense of it and it doesn't matter in the slightest sense. Even if Elysium would run on a good old 32-bit x86 processor in 150 years, nobody would ever write x86 assembly to program it. The only thing that code snippet is needed for is to show that Armadyne is doing something pretty complicated and computer-related. For that matter he could also have programmed that thing in Javascript, directly in binary, or using some of those cool green Matrix-symbols. –  Tom Cody Aug 21 '13 at 1:10
I disagree with the closing of this question. It's far more on-topic here than on StackOverflow - THAT will get you warned -> blocked. –  Dan Dascalescu Jul 19 at 8:22
