Never, never ever, mix FBlit and friends with P96. This will not work - it will only create chaos. If you want to use P96 and release chip ram, use the "Native" driver for P96 from Aminet.

With 3.1.4, I believe Prepareemul should no longer be necessary. However: "MuMove4K" goes before SetPatch, MuFastZero goes after. Ideally, you should install one of the corresponding CPU libraries...

Yes, it does. Just that the drive LED workaround is not responsible for the delay. I just wished I had never added this option. It just takes a while to setup MMU talbes.

Not on a physical level, but on a software level, you can "lock" a partition such that writes are declined. However, this change is not permanent and does not persist booting.
