Great stuff, that's the one!

I wanted to start with the CD then apply the various patches next, just like Matay intended originally.

Welp, somehow I missed that entirely.

AFAIR the A1200 has chipset timings decoupled from the CPU, so I don't think that's the issue. Maybe it's just the Apollo's clock divider?
