I know alreday two ROMs which do not work, one I know why, for the other not.
Would be nice if some ppl can test and tell me if there are more.

Ah yes, the title picture is skipped on purpose.

The file has to be renamed and copied to the directory the emulator looks for it.
For mednafen its $HOME/.mednafen/lynxboot.img

I'll give it a spin. I've got some other things running, so I do not know when that moment may be. If you have particular questions, PM me.

Question: which two ROMs do not work? What is the reason you know?

original games work fine, but the troyan horses might make problems, at least one of the roms is done with an old lynxer version, most like on the ST, which differs from the one I (and most others) were using.

What will not be working is the "variety of boot schemes" ThomH wants to use, while Dave's micro loader will work in the next version (I just have to change a few lines).

My goal is not to have a rom which is a complete and identical replacement, but one which loads the commerical ones fine (therefvore can be shipped with the emulator) and can be used by _myself_ for developing.

Now cc65 created images boot fine (Karris "micro" loader).

And finally, I found out why it did not work in handy, while it worked fine in mednafen.

for some reason handybug throws three bombs if it used.

I have tested the first and latest release against some official and homebrew cartridges. No issues so far.
Is the source code to the replacement Boot ROM available for review?
