Default Decompiling firmware?

Is there any known way to do decompile the .bin file, or is this a trade secret of samsung's?

You can open it with an hexa editor but you won't find anything interesting I guess.
Everything is close and secret.
And before upgrading with a new firmware, the P3 checks the firmware file so if you modify it and the size of the file changes, it won't install it...

Decompiling doesn't really work in general, but if you know the CPU type, you can disassemble the binary to recover the assembly instructions.
