Apollo 1240 repaired sought off, Now for the 1260 upgrade

Had a few spare hours today and decided to have a crack at running my Apollo 1240 as a 1260. I recently purchased a 060 from China and wanted to know if it was a Rev 6 or a fake ;) I just had to come up with a voltage reg to feed 3.3v to the 060, the ROM and CPU socket were already taken care off. H...

Re: TF536 Sales ... Batch 3 No Longer Available.

SOLD OUT! I hope to obtain some more over the couple of weeks. I will move to a new thread as Batch 3 is now finished. That was quick, just for info, the PCBs I obtained from the terriblefire from the first batch shipped to Australia in just on 3 weeks, I have received a number of parcels from the ...

Re: TF536 Sales Suspended

I have run a few customer service businesses and there is always those few that are just A-holes, hence farming is the go now. Totally understand your frustration terriblefire hobbies should be soul building not stress enhancers. At least in business I could hurt the buggers at the pocket level when...

Re: 128MB on the TF536

@PaulJ_2.0 I ordered some of those chips as well (AS4C32M16SB-6TIN) just experimenting, 64mb is heaps, just thought I would have a fiddle, not a problem if never eventuates, might use it as a programming exercise if @terriblefire opens up the code further down the track :)

Re: Apollo 1240 memory not showing up in Workbench

Try using the addmem util in Wb to add it and see if it crashes... Well that worked :o I read the documentation for AddMem, put it in the startup before SetPatch and what do you know Working2.jpg I checked the old Seagate 40Meg HD (still serviceable) that was in this machine when the card worked ye...

Re: Apollo 1240 memory not showing up in Workbench

What address range does the apollo put the ram in? can diagrom tell you that? $01000000 - $02000000 let the test run to about 8M without any issues. mem_range2.jpg I probably still have clock issues somewhere I removed the Fastram and the Ram Jumper, and WhichAmiga shows the 040 running at 0.0Mhz :...

Re: Apollo 1240 memory not showing up in Workbench

After mid-night time for bed, diagrom did give the range of the fastram, but I can not recall it off the top of the head, will check it out tomorrow, too cold out in the shed ATM to check it out. Yes the Ram option jumper is shorted, I have the manual for the Apollo, the same one as the link above. ...

Re: Apollo 1240 memory not showing up in Workbench

Which KS are you using... i think there is an issue with pre 3.0 systems. I tried with both KS 3 & 3.1, I did read somewhere that even 3.1 can cause some issues with the Apollo cards. When I initially purchased the Apollo back in 2002 it worked well with KS3, but life then took over raising 3 sons ...
