What's so intriguing about this software is that it can be used on an Amiga that lacks any original disk software. This software, released in 2021, actually seems quite focused on the earliest Amiga 1000's, which is kind of fascinating in its own right.
Roc Vallès Domènech:
Software requirements:It is able to read/write/compare floppies, install bootblocks, send/receive files and dump the kickstart rom.
By disabling interrupts and polling the serial port directly, speeds as high as 512kbps are achieved, even on a basic Amiga 500 with its 7MHz cpu clock. The integrity of data is protected by CRC-32/ISO-HDLC.
Unlike most serial port transfer tools, it does not require installing and running an agent on the Amiga side, as it uses the kickstart rom's debugger to take control of the Amiga.
- An Amiga with a 1.x kickstart, in good condition. 34.5 (1.3) is confirmed to work. Newer kickstarts are not tested, and might not work. If the Amiga is an A1000, the kickstart will have to be loaded first.
- A supported platform running amigaXfer.
- A null-modem serial cable or an USB <-> RS-232 adapter, connecting both computers together. Only three wires will be used: GND<>GND straight and RX<>TX crossed.
- A few blank floppies, verified to be good e.g. by a verified formatting done on another computer. DD is preferable over HD.
- ADF images of any desired floppies to be written (e.g. Workbench and Extras 1.3.x).
