No idea what's going on in that video.  You'd think with as smart as Amiga users are, they'd be able to figure out how to upload a video in higher than 240p resolution?  Also it's from 2010.  Oh well, if you can read anything on that screen you must have younger eyes than mine, and good luck with the project!  ;)

Out side of Kickstart switchers, are there any rom boards that would allow the user to add a user rom that would allow the addition of more rom space?
Please note that adding a larger flash ROM than is needed for the Amiga operating system does not by itself allow the Amiga to use the larger space. The flash ROM still needs to fit into the available address space, and the operating system has to know where to look for more operating system components. Where the early system startup looks for components to use is hard-coded.

That said, a larger flash ROM could be very useful if you could switch between different portions of that ROM to be visible. It could provide insurance against flashing an operating system ROM that does not work correctly, and provide you with a backup copy of the last working configuration which you could then switch back to.

isnt that most flash equipped devices for amiga can accept 1mb roms? except deneb unfortunately (which though can hold kickstart modules additionally to 512kb kickstart itself), but individual computers aca series and the various geek forged flash rom kickstart solutions do afair. so its all old cheese, the problems have been long solved elsewhere.

@Olsen
Sorry, I do not remember mentioning a flash-rom. I am talking about having a second rom (eeprom maybe) being put into an address space of its own.
It would be nice if an Amiga 1200 had a vga driver in rom.

It would be cool to make a smart-rom. (smart rom?)
Maybe one could put a Parallax Propeller on a circuit board with an SD card.
The Propeller has eight 32 bit processors. I am not for sure if it can do floating point.

Seriously? I think 'monstrous' is a monstrous over exaggeration when talking about any Amiga boot sequence!

Sorry, I hope my previous reply was not too blunt.
