Bassano del Grappa, Italy - 18 May 2024

ACube Systems is pleased to announce a new release of the U-Boot firmware for its Sam460 line of motherboards.



New in this version:

- added support for Radeon RX cards
- updated x86 emulator
- fixed USB handling especially for keyboard support
- new boot logo and menu graphics
- added FAT support
- fixed several typos and small graphic mistakes

The updated installation guide describes in detail the usual installation method (ISO image) and alternative methods (TFTP and USB).

You can buy the update from our online shop https://shop.acube-systems.biz/ with the following options:

- digital download version if you want to update your UBoot chip on your own (direct link: https://shop.acube-systems.biz/softwar ... 460-digital-download.html)
- Fully updated UBoot chip (direct link: https://shop.acube-systems.biz/softwar ... sam460-physical-chip.html)
- Radeon RX550 + UBoot chip bundle (direct link: https://shop.acube-systems.biz/graphic ... on-rx550-uboot-2015c.html)

For customers who bought version 2015.b, the downloadable version is free of charge. Please contact us if you are eligible for the free update.

To celebrate the new UBoot update we also lowered the price of Radeon RX550 in our shop, both the bundle version and the stand-alone version.

Additional information:

Please note: UBoot and UBoot updater make use of GPL code and thus are both published under GPL.

 rulez!
Quite unusual in OS4 land to handle things in a good way with providing a source of amigaos4 related parts too, without anyone asking and crying for them. And support of RadeonRX is top too, thanks a lot !

 Re: Graphic cards tested
Doesn't seem to work with the following -

Docooler Yeston RX560-4G D5 LP Graphics Card Gaming Graphic Card 1200/6000MHz 4G/128bit/GDDR5 Memory VGA+HDMI+DVI-D Output Ports

Sam460 no longer boots up with that card.
Will still boot up with a HD5450.


Cheers

@noXLar

The RX 470 is very similar to the RX 570, we didn't had any to test it on, you may give it a try, before doing so, set the x86emu to 'Medium' in Video Options, or in alternative from the u-boot shell:

] setenv x86emu 2
] saveenv

there was a similar problem with a RX 460 card, which was solved setting the x86emu to 'Medium' in Video Options, or in alternative from the u-boot shell:

 Re: UBoot 2015.c for Sam460EX / Sam460CR / Sam460LE board...
awesome stuff ACube! I miss U-Boot when I had my Samflex@800 and wish that you guys had set up U-Boot on the X1000 too instead of the CFE we got stuck with

 Can't Invoke U-Boot
Hello, I'm trying to get into U-Boot to perform update. I attached a serial cable to my Amiga w/460 LE, I can see verbage re: U-boot on my terminal screen, but it stops at VESA: OK. I press q, that doesn't do anything. I press esc, that doesn't do any thing. I've checked my Putty settings and they have 115200, 8 data bits, 1 stop bits, parity none, flow control none. Nothing seems to work. If I'm missing anything please let me know. Thank you.

 Serial
@kishigo
It can be or not working serial cable, or you have setenv "stdout" set to anything but not to serial (like to vga). Be sure that you press esc or q, on correct keyboard too: if you have environment "stdin" set to usbkbd, then esc and q will works from usb keyboard only. To make it works from putty, you had to set "stdin" environment variable to serial too (together with "flow control" to "none" in putty itself)
