A500 & rom 2.05
I have a spare 2.05 ROM after upgrading my A600 to 3.1 , so during the x-mass vacations I thought that it would be cool to upgrade my 1.3 A500+, left at home.
What I did was to replace the 1.3 with the 2.05 but the computer wouldn't start (like there was no ROM to it). A friend of mine said that it might be a software problem : the 2.05 ROM checks for the IDE that isn't present on the A500, so it won't boot.
Anybody there that has tried this kind of upgrade? I hope that my 2.05 ROM is still alive after this experiment (I haven't test it yet back to the A600)!
P.S. The A500+ had the 2.04 originally, but since then I've chainged lots of ROM couples (1.3/2.04), and now I'm left with an old 1.3 only.
