In 2018 we got a surprise from Hyperion with the release of AmigaOS 3.1.4. for our Classic Amigas. In 2021 they gave us AmigaOS 3.2! An updated OS for our 1980s machines in 2021.
The upgrade process is very easy. In my A4000 I have a CD-ROM but I installed it via WinUAE on my CF Card which was even more convenient.
The software upgrade went very good. I had only 2 issues:
- My Startup-sequence was not upgraded but renamed to .OLD resulting in X-Boot not starting anymore but changing that again works like a charm
- If I have X-Bench in my startup-sequence the colors of the background image doesn’t appear correctly, like it misses some colors. This was in WinUAE but also on my A4000.
I had these issues when installing the ROMs:
- When I installed the 3.2 ROMs some of my CF cards wouldn’t boot because of missing libraries, manually add them from 3.2 disk solved it.
I order it via https://www.retro-updates.com/product/4582867/amigaos-3-2-preorder (no sponsoring or affiliation) but this is located in The Netherlands so shipping was for me the best option here. Good software deserves support! Local support.
UPDATE: AmigaOS 3.2.1 Update is available!
