Great guide RJ.

I'll have to dig my 800xl out to check, lol.

Thank you 😁 More to come later today.

Re: Atari 800XL: Ultimate 1MB upgrade

The upgrade is progressing nicely and will definitely be finished today. The instructions on Lotharek's website are great, and you should visit his site first before proceeding.

Re: Bad resistor?

As tzok said, zero ohm resistors used as links. I'm guessing they were moved to change or upgrade the TOS ROMs. As exxos said, looks like a poor soldiering job, but you can probably clean up the flux with isopropyl alcohol

Am surprised no one has done the Dark Phoenix

Re: Atari 800XL: Ultimate 1MB upgrade
