Update SDX on SIDE2?

Recommended Posts

Is there some docs that explain how to update SDX on the SIDE2 (and presumably the original SIDE)? The update files that I've seen are XEX files.

 

I have looked here, but have found nothing about updating SDX. IF it works like the IDE+2, then I should be able to boot to the internal SDX then load/execute the XEX update file. But I'd rather hear from someone that knows instead of guessing.

 

Thanks,

Larry

I have a working SIDE2 update ATR here, if you can possibly hang on for about a day until I get everything packaged up. I'm working as fast as I can. Evidently people are waiting for this stuff...

 

There's a ROM currently on my website, but no means to actually get it onto the cartridge without a PLCC programmer. This is all about to change.

Sure Jon, that's no problem, but I still need to know how to do it. I don't see any explanation at your web site, so I asked the question. I presumed that folks have used the XEX files in the past...

edit: my mistake -- it is a ROM at your site. The older one that I saw (somewhere) is an ATR.

No problem. Regarding the HOW, just boot the ATR... in a day or two. :)

 

 

what about side 2 update for Ultimate 1mb ?

You mean the PBI BIOS? That'll be available at the weekend also, as a uflash image and a stand-alone XEX installer. You can also update Ultimate's SDX with uflash, or using an ATR similar to the one for SIDE.

NO. THIS WILL NOT WORK. SIDE1 AND SIDE2 FLASHERS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE.

 

Please wait until the weekend.

Whatever works for you. But the new ROMs aren't out yet anyway, so I'd recommend Aking waits 24 hours or so until I release them, and thus saves wasted effort.
