Re: alienkidmj12s FireBee

Strange thread, I don't think it is meant for a public forum to be honest. Well, you are not that wrong. But the last days Dave sent messages on every channel and also at firebee.org publicly as I didn´t answer within 48 hours, and also created some public pressure. So I thought we could perhaps tr...

Re: alienkidmj12s FireBee

About FAQs: I know that I could do so. But belive me, people don´t read them. It was extremely frustrating to write all the support articles and nevertheless get all the questions, which are answered there, again and again. See Daves question in the other thread where he asked for a FreeMiNT copy, w...

Re: alienkidmj12s FireBee

OK Dave, You know I exchanged a lot of mails and PMs with you. Any time we communicate, you mainly postulate your speculations what might be the cause of your problems. We talked very long about your keyboard. I asked you to get a cheap USB one (without built in USB Hub), ... Than we talked about bo...

Re: alienkidmj12s FireBee

He also has an usolved Keyboard issue. Also I think he still does not understand TOS (in ROM), and MiNT (at mass storage). But let´s wait for him. The last info was his FireBee does not boot anymore, and he never could use it.

alienkidmj12s FireBee

alienkidmj12 has various and unsolvable problems with his Firebee that he has for more than one year now at his place. I suggest that we try to solve every issue here together and publicly. For me it would make a lot more sense to have this publicly, as other may have similar issues, and I am tired ...

Re: Coldfire V5

A lot of time has passed since their ARM offensive and they might be amenable to selling a small backstock of v5 if they have any. I don't know if the v5e made it into any printers but some of them can be had for £50-100 on ebay and the cpu could be extracted. BGA mounted ? [edit] It looks like the...

Re: Coldfire V5

Of course we tried it. And we tried it hard. The problem ist the produced chips are done as a Joint Venture from HP and Freescale. The agreed upon an NDA, so we can get the chips (at least the 400MHz versions easily, the 540 not that often), but no ducumentation at all. So we would have som BGA with...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

If you use the latest FireTOS from 2014 you are using the correct cpx as well (as the one wich is included is the only working one). So I am really wondering what might be the IDE issue. What BaS are you using? You should give BaS Codewarrior a try and see if the problems are gone.

Re: MOD files on Firebee

Well in general: If you try new programs, take the 68000 versions if there are CPU spcific versions. The cf68klib that is included into FireTOS at the FireBee is not for 68030 or 68060 commands. In most cases the 68000 versions work well, like Highwire does! Also I´d suggest to every new FireBee use...

Re: MOD files on Firebee

It seems the informations about activities around the FireBee start to fade away recently, … Highwire was working well already years ago as 68k version (not the 060 or 030 builts!). But gladly m0n0 did also a clean ColdFire built of it. Grab it at his website: https://freeshell.de/~monokrom/geeklog/...
