Coyote Flux (ANF)

New KickFlash-OS4 Update
As Coyote Flux announce, there are new versions available of the KickFlash OS4 Firmware and the CoyoteFlash tool.

CoyoteFlash is a program that has been developed for the Individual Computers KickFlash OS4 Card. It allows full management of the flash card and can install AmigaOS ROM Updates and other modules on machine startup. This allows booting of an OS 3.5 or higher system without any resets involved. More information about this project is available on the Individual Computers website.

Changes of the new version:
  • Now works with any resident modules
  • Supports multiple modules in one file
  • Supports the OpenOXYPPort command for OxyPatcher 3.13, just add the file and it will be installed on bootup
  • Supports the last BoingBag 2 AmigaOS ROM Updates. Since our main developer machine broke down, it was hard to test the compatibility with other systems. Please give us some feedback!
  • New advantages are that you can install AmigaOS ROM updates with different modules. For example, you can install all the updates except scsi.device and use a different scsi.device as a seperate module.
  • Should work with some of the PrepareEmul like programs, but has not been tested intensively yet. Please let us know if it works...
  • The NOROMUPDATE command is no longer needed for Setpatch, it should detect the install automatically now.

New superbundle registrations for Pegasos-I-Boards without serial number end
On 14 March 2004 the new superbundle registrations for Pegasos-I-Boards without serial number will end. If you should have a Pegasos-I-Board without serial number und if you should not have ordered your superbundle then please do it as soon as possible.

Owners of a Pegasos II or of a Pegasos I with serial number are not concerned.

After expiration of the mentioned time as a owner of a Pegasos I without serial number you will still only have the possibility to get the superbundle by registering your Pegasos at an authorized Genesi agent. (snx) (Translation: (dr)
