Re: 512K flash memory internal upgrade - no traces cut

I'm going to attempt this mod at the weekend. I've already doing the ram upgrade, following Patter's guide. I have the ROM chip, blown with OZ 4.7.1 ready!

Edit...

Just to report, I've managed to do this mod from the instructions.

Success! Thanks @patters for the clear guide!

The FPGA work outputs VGA. Could this be replicated in a raspberry pi interface? I am just spitballing h...
