I'm working with an secondary ARM bootloader from Huawei "oemsbl.img" for a phone that comes with a locked bootloader. I was going through the output of strings oemsbl.img, and towards the end, I found this:
& / 1 2 0 " $ : < ! # 9 ; * %
I'm wondering if it is some code in some language. I wouldn't expect it to be any mainstream language, but it is likely that it takes at least 3 inputs and produces one output.
If anyone has any idea what code it could be, or any general suggestion, please reply!

Considering the total lack of duplication of characters, what makes you think its code at all? Looks to me like a list of characters....

J code that I have seen in the past did look similar, and then there are esoteric languages too, so I wondered. I disassembled the file, and turns out that in ASM, they are strings.

That was the output of `strings`? You do know what strings does, don't you? Why on earth would you expect it to be code?
