A1000 Vamped

Hi fellow Amiga fans,

Just sharing a successful attempt to vamp an Amiga 1000, both for the older models with a WCS daughterboard as for the newer ones.

For the daughterboard model I used a stack of three 68K CPU sockets to clear the space, which is not needed for the newer models.

To prevent the need of opening the A1000 to much, I redirected the Micro-SD-Card with an extension cable and the same for the IDE, DIGITAL-VIDEO and JTAG.

IDE-Kit is from Amiga-Kit store (basic IDE-CF adapter with long cable)

Cheers to the Apollo team for all their fantastic work!

I did pretty much what you did with my 1000, still only 512k chip ram cripples it.

Sorry yeah the alpha.  “Non ready for prime time” core3. :). So far aside from a few aga titles not Working right I’ve had good luck with it on my OCS A500
