This program 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 enables 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.
Version 1.6 of Kickflash OS4 is now available for download on Individual Computers website and our webpage. This is a major update with many improvements over the last version.
The firmware now supports multiple Kickstart remapping. The remapping of 512KB Kickstarts works with the MapRom feature of the Cyberstorm MK1/MK2/MK3/PPC, A3640 and the BlizzardPPC boards. Additionally it supports Retro Remapping to make any Amiga start in Kickstart 1.3 mode when the joystick button is held during reset. This requires a 34.005 Kickstart ROM and uses Relokick's internal relocation table to rekick the system. This lets you disable the caches by pressing the left mousebutton during the Kickstart 1.3 floppy boot screen, which makes a lot of older programs compatible with faster systems.
Many more resident modules can now be installed at the same time, and many more filetypes are supported, such as the latest (non-public) ram-handler version 51.6. Other changes have been made to the hunk handling, AmigaOS 3.9 reset handler code, memory handling and the OpenOXYPPort support code.
Special thanks fly out to Peter Riede, who has helped a lot during the development and testing of this product.
