Smile CD32 Kickstart 40.56 - did it really exist?

I know of some old CD32 models with 40.58 on it, but even Google is very stubborn with infos about 40.56.

Some dude from a 1995 usenet post claimed to have 40.56 on, but who knows what the actual kickstart was. Not all revisions of the command 'version' resp. the 'version.library' must necessarily be 100% correct in everything they output.
If he dumped it and hex-edited the resulting file, this would maybe be a better proof then, with the revision date visible in clear ASCII output ...

So does this version of KS 3.1 really exist, or better, does anyone have a real CD32 with which he can prove its existance at best?

Yes, it does exist. I have a CD32 with that Kickstart, but it's broken... It was used for Rev 1/2 boards only afaik.

But 40.58 does not exist, at least not officially. The part number of 40.56 is 391640-02, the next one (391640-03) is already 40.60. So there's no room for something in between.

That's sad to hear.
Those CD32s are scarce as hen's teeth. Well, maybe one of those will eventually show up on e-bay.

Thanks for the info.
BTW, in case you're interested, there were some errata and illogicalnesses due to typos on Greg Donner's site regarding KS 3.1 / ROM component IDs. You may want to re-revise them as well, perhaps you have another (better?) details to support.

At least the previously messed-up table now contains lots more plausible info, i. e. not 2 different version numbers with one and the same ROM ID

Dump the kickstart first; then look for WindowsKillers "KickTools" to identify the ROM.
(I hope you will NOT identify it - this would mean it's indeed a new one )
