I just added an open board view file for the TF534 to the github page.

Note by default it opens on the bottom of the board.

A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.

My lack of focus:
[ 3 * Amiga 500 ][ Amiga 500+ ][ Amiga 600HD ][ Amiga 2000 ][ Amiga 4000/030 w/ 64 MB RAM hack ][ CD32 (NTSC) ][ VIC-20 ][ 4 * C64 Breadbin ][ 2 * C64C ][ 2 * C128 ][ Mac Classic ][ Mac Classic II ][ Mac Colour Classic ]

Beeped my way throug the CPLDs, RAM, buffers and resistor networks, and can’t find any shorts.

Next I will try to work my way through OBV to see if somethings not connected right. But that’s for another day.

try this firmware

https://www.dropbox.com/s/icxg3d8a2rbov ... g.zip?dl=0

I havent tested it but it should make the TF534 think the RAM is already configured so the OS will not try to allocate it to the system pool.

Then you should be able to diagnose if the issue is IDE or not... and finally use

http://aminet.net/package/util/cli/AddMem

do

ADDMEM START 40000000 TO 40400000 PRI -100

this will make the fastram low priority and not get code run in there . You should then be able to load systest from a cli.

That didn't work out as planned. Wish me luck tomorrow!

Hi TF,

This firmware now works for me 3.1 boots with IDE , no issues :yay2:

Next step with addmem START 40000000 TO 40400000 PRI -100, @ the moment I press enter ,and gives a softwarefailuer and reboots.
Will try to resolder/reflow all the ram chips..


Thanks a lot for this nonautoconfig firmware ...,Very helpfull

I needed a hot air station and thought that I could use an extra soldering station as well, so I bought a combo :)
