Hi all,
I am writing a hex editor for a while. One of my user remind me about UBCD project
I trying to make it best hex editor on linux. This hex editor could open HUGE files and devices up to exabyte sizes.
I think it's good for your Ultimate Boot CD too.

wxHexEditor supports Linux, Mac OSX and Windows platforms also...
It's Open sourced and free program under GPL license.

It still in alpha state due lack of some functions but will release v0.10 soon which is first beta.
But it could already write on disk devices directly on Linux.

Version 0.20 Beta Released
