R80 roms!

Post by rrjim1 » Sat Jul 20, 2019 5:04 pm

Is there any where that has the 4 R80 Roms in separate files. I know I can separate them but this would be much faster. Jim

Here you go. I went through the trouble of splitting these to update an old console a while back.

Just for the benefit of the un-initiated like myself, what are the R80 roms?

They contain the system OS kernel (EOS) and the SmartWriter ROMs.

Got it. Why do you need them? Have your roms been damaged?

Thanks! Tekman

Wmaalouli, A person heard that I was looking for a Adam console so he stopped over with a R79 Adam. The console works great so I wanted to upgrade it to a R80. Tape drive needs some work. Funny how I was down to one working console now I have way to many. :D

How can one tell which rom version is in the console?

When the ADAM boots to SmartWriter press <CONTROL> + R and the revision will show on screen under SmartKey IV.

I highly recommend that you read thru "The ADAM Survival Guide" that is available in PDF from numerous Adam sites including the Archive as it will bring you up to speed on the basics. The NIAD and N&B newletters will as well, but there is a lot of them to peruse.
