CT2B Flash 1.41 English

Postby mikro » Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:49 am

I know this is a long shot but any chance somebody got this version for the Centurbo card? Latest English available (on dhs.nu) is 1.39. One guy called 'phantomm' had been hunting relentlessly for the English 1.4.1 and according to this post: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.sy ... xnhl97EzAJ he succeeded. But has never posted anything (1.4.1 has been available only in French on centek.online.fr)

Even knowing who that person is could help (his email no longer works...).

His last post was in 2009: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.sy ... 0ZM16XBuMJ so perhaps somebody knows him even today. ;)

Unbelievable what you can achieve with a simple web search these days... http://atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t= ... =20#p76717. So apparently DarkLord knows him. :-P

Long shot have you tried Barry's email at phantomm@suddenlink.net
http://compgroups.net/comp.sys.atari.st ... on/2160161

He sold a bunch of Atari stuff (including Falcon) in 2011 :-(
May be look up ebay for a similar name.

Edit: Oh man.... something happen in 2014, hope it's not the same guy. I think he would not have that firmware with him.


may be Rodolphe Czuba still have a copy?

Yes, I saw the 'other' google results as well. I'm afraid it's him (the same name and state and city...).

That email address also bounces.

I'm afraid Rodolphe doesn't have anything as he parted with Centek in 1999 and therefore didn't have access to later releases (I think there was a sort of accusation on the news group that he is distributing their Flash 1.3x illegally or so... funny times).

Yup, matched the name, state and city as well. Not surprised email bounced.

Well... history repeats, the hw and sw guys seems to keep upsetting each others. :roll:

Is there any benefit to 1.41? I didn't know it even existed.

That is a very good question. While investigating this issue I saw this question asked numerous times. R. Czuba claims while he was at Centek, he guaranties only versions up to 1.32 being good. I'd imagine that they have mostly updated Cecile.

I know about one bugfix and that is integrating Didier's Patch MMU (http://didierm.pagesperso-orange.fr/files/wpmmuct2.zip) into BIOS.

On the other hand, I have one really weird problem with English 1.39: I can't escape the docs screen! ESCAPE (or any other key) simply doesn't work. When I re-flash 1.4.1 again, everything is fine. WTF?

Aha, that explains my RAM problem. I couldn't really understand the response I got from Rudolph when I was playing with firmware.

I have a 64mb and a 128mb module. The 64 would detect as 32 on FW greater than 1.32 and I asked him why. He said that up to 1.32 was the best one. Which I though that was weird. When I installed the 128 it detected as 64 with 1.32 or less. Clear banking problems. So I flashed 1.39 and installed the 128mb in the end.

Now my interest has been tipped. It would be good to revisit exactly what patches are required with what flash version too.
