Kickstart switcher: A500Flash
A500Flash is a Kickstart switcher allowing Flash-memory reprogramming. The device should be installed inside the Amiga A500/A500+/A2000.

The design of the Flash memory enables loading another Kickstart image by running additional software on the same Amiga computer and subsequent switching between available ROM images by holding down CTRL+Amiga+Amiga keys.



The A500Flash is available in two versions, either for 512 KB or 1 MB ROMs:
