  Loving your optimism, Vojin ...! Hopefully you're right. I will just have to make sure I plug the cable in the right way round ...

Just flashed Core 6 to my V4 SA, so far working great with Coffin OS R58.  Getting Apollo OS R6 ready :)  UPDATE: Apollo OS R6 was getting read errors, tried a diffrent CF card and it's working great!

Karlos, I just remembered every V4 has dual ROM. There is a small jumper onboard that sets which one is used, but please ask someone from team. So switching to other position gives you back also version that was flashed in production and can also bring life temporarily, before blaster or new EXE come.

I get both AROS and Amiga 3.x working fine without having to use any jumpers.  But that sounds interesting.  Thanks.

Well, I'm happy to report that the reflash was 100% successful.

The Vampire lives again ... thanks for your advice.

Vampire has risen! And is standalone!

Thanks for encouragement, I have also to flash latest core as JIC :)

Good luck with that, Vojin, To be honest, looking back on it, it was actually trickier to install the Altera USB Blaster driver than to flash the core. I probably wouldn't have said that as the flash was being performed and I was keeping my fingers crossed ...
