I installed 3.1.4 on my A500 with TF534 yesterday, including burning the rom chip. Two questions:

1) CPU Fastrom option is no longer supported. This option is kind of essential for this type of system, since it makes you gain a big speedup. Why was it removed? Is there an alternative for copying the ROM into RAM with accelerators that don’t have a dedicated feature for doing so?

For the moment I reverted to using the old 3.1 CPU command.

2) what is the purpose of the modules disk? How are these modules intended to be used?

To update intuition.library, I had to add “LoadModule intuition.library” to the startup-sequence since LoadModule ROMUPDATE (as per FAQ) gives an error message since I use a 3.1.4 ROM chip.

It's for making your own kickstart. But there's one question: why they didn't share all contents of new kickstart? I enlisted above all missing modules and residents that are in kickstart but not on Modules floppy. We are lack of ROMplit that will be able to extract missing modules. Of course we can take modules from 3.1 ROM but I don't how it will be working.

They are intended for use with LoadModule on a kick 3.1 system, but can also be used to build custom kickstarts.

Not all the updated modules are included.

It needs someone with some skills to make a patch file. ROM modules in a Kickstart are located at a fixed address and any absolute addresses need to be patched.

Mostly these seem to be minor modules (potgo etc) but I agree it would be nice to have them!

t would be easier if Hyperion included in the AmigaOS3.1.4 archive also the maprom version with Intuition.library v45.

Personally, I would vote for that as an option. ;-)

I'm definitely very interested in getting hold of physical ROM chips and floppies of this
