The following instructions apply to using the Floppy Edition over a network :
The 'updater.image' program can be booted via network. You must have a tftpboot server accessible from your AmigaOne (the setup
of such a server is beyond the scope of this README; also, there are other methods to boot via BOOTP or DHCP which are also not
A bit of setup is required on the AmigaOne side. First of all, verify that the variable ethaddr is set up to your machine's
internal hardware ethernet address (U-Boot should have done that automatically already). Secondly make sure that you have a
correct server IP address set up in the serverip variable. Third, your own machine's IP address should be set up in the ipaddr
variable. To boot the image, from the U-Boot prompt enter
setenv autostart yes
After some rows of '#' characters, a message about “AmigaOne Firmware Updater” or similar should appear on screen. Read the text
that is displayed and make sure you understand the consequences of your actions. To proceed, type ok and forget about
turning back. Immediately the existing contents of the ROM will be erased, and the new contents will be written to it. You must
reset your machine to use the new firmware.
tftpboot 500000 updater.image
IMPORTANT: Upgrading your firmware is potentially dangerous. If something goes wrong during the
update, it might leave your system unusable. Should this situation occur, you will need to remove the
U-Boot ROM and return it to your dealer so that the U-Boot ROM can be re-built. If you do not feel
comfortable upgrading under these circumstances, contact your dealer to arrange for the upgrade or
for Amiga Auckland club members, contact a member of the Executive for assistance.
