I think it's worth a little applause anyway  ;-)
Bravo, team. It's a milestone for sure!

Only question, do I dare try it, last core that doesn't brick my Vamp is Silver 6. :-(

Anyone else tried it yet?

Daniel, you have the Usb Blaster, right?
If so, you can unbrick the vampire if something goes wrong.
Be sure only do not plug/unplug the jtag cable when the amiga (Vampire) is on !!

Is the GOLD core only for the faster cores or is it for all Vampires?

Flashed on my vampire and it's working fine.

Sysinfo crashes tho and  Amos games still have missing sprites.

I'll do more testing at the weekend ,  great job :)

Sysinfo crashes on all 68040 and 68060 without FPU..
This is a long time bug in Sysinfo..

Didn't happen on Silver 9 or previous.  There is a Sysinfo v4.0 with FPU disabled that will not crash.

Hi all.

I have upgraded from silver 9 to Gold... now my AmigaOs3.9 BB4 crash when i try to open any partition or do something on pull menu :(
It´s possible to go back to Silver9 ?

@Pedro Henriques

First of all, BB3 and BB4 are not official releases.  They are third party extras.  Second of all, it sounds like something activated the 3.9 ROM updater in SetPatch.

Try holding down both mouse buttons when you turn on the switch and click "boot with no startup-sequence".  Then load s:startup-sequence into a text editor and make sure the SKIPROMUPDATES option is listed after the line with C:SETPATCH.
