This is the most informative post I had seen so far.
In addition to the same /proc/idme reference you mention, it also shows where idme writes (on that device; the offsets may vary,
but you could probably get the source code from Amazon and check for your particular device), and outlines the procedure for
passing variables from idme to the bootloader.
