Just because it is trivial to make the modification in a single, specific firmware for one particular device does not mean it is trivial to get it done on *billions* of devices. Even if each one was as trivial as your example, it would still be ludicrously difficult.

Beyond that, I am still not understanding what you are actually trying to propose here. Your refusal to follow simple mailing list etiquette even after numerous requests makes it very difficult to decipher what you are saying.
