This region is an arm7 bootrom overlay, over the vector table at address 0. Once the ARM7 is taken out of reset by <code>TwlProcess9</code>, the reset vector will be jumped to, beginning execution. <code>TwlProcess9</code> uses this to put ARM7 in a loop (TWL), and to set the <code>POSTFLG</code> and branch to more copied code (GBA). Execution is started by writing <code>0x8001</code> to [[CONFIG11_Registers#CFG11_TWLMODE_0|CFG11_TWLMODE_0]]after setting the mode via <code>ARM7_CNT</code>. Later, this overlay is disabled by the ARM7 via the "biosprot" register (0x04000308).
Reading uninitialized data in this 32-byte region leads to both screens displaying solid green (exception), and the CPU locking up.
