Re: issues softloading riscos 5 on riscpc

Great i was missing the HardDisc4 now works fine, and i see theres all kind of problems using it.
But at least allowed me to confirm that ADFFS works on Riscos 5 and not on riscos 4.

Does riscos 6.1 is any good ?.
Also i read that to use 128mb simms on the riscpc you need riscos 4.2 at least ?

Re: StrongARM CPU refurbish

Found out that the easy way to get the caps out is use pliers hold the cap and then twist the cap this will rip the plastic part and the top.
Then use the solder wick to remove the legs.

Re: Installing SmallyMouse2 internally onto an A3000

I super easy grab +5 from the cap "yellow wire" on the pictures.
The rest of the pins follow the pinout in the schematic, the smallymouse have etched on the pcb what the pins are.
Just connect the same pins following the text on the smally mouse and the schematic.

After the Ctrl-Break step it comes up "NoMBR!" on the top left of the screen followed by "*". I'm guessing this is because the ADFS image file isn't in the format that eitherMMFS or...
