amigaXfer is an easy to use GUI tool for lightning fast serial-port floppy and
file transfers.

As it uses the Kickstart built-in debugger, no software is needed in the Amiga
side. Just loadwb -debug, select the Debug/RomWack/SAD option in Workbench's
extra debug menu and enjoy.

This is a Win32 (Windows 7+) build. Alternatively, source code (python and m68k
assembly) is available under MIT license, and runs on multiple platforms,
requiring Python 3.8+, pyserial and wxpython.

It is possible to bootstrap an Amiga for which no bootable disks are available.

https://rvalles.net/bootstrapping-an-amiga-without-a-bootable-amiga-floppy.html

Highlights:
- Supports RomWack (AmigaOS 1.x, 2.x) and SAD (AmigaOS 3.x) builtin debuggers.
- High speed transfers; 512kbps possible on basic 68000  at 7MHz A500.
- Can be used to bootstrap an Amiga for which no bootable disks are available.
- Checksums (CRC32/ISO-HDLC) used throughout to ensure transfer integrity.

About the serial port:
- Only three wires are used: RX, TX and GND.
- IBM PC standard serial port only support up to 115200 bps.
- USB-serial controllers can generally handle higher speeds.
- Short cables work better. USB adapters can make this trivial.

Entering the debugger:
- Load WB with "loadwb -debug", then select romwack/sad on debug menu.
- Use provided debug AmigaOS binary and icon, on CLI or WB.
- Boot from provided debug bootblocks.
- Crash the Amiga, enter the debugger as power led blinks.
-- Refer to URL above or included bootstrap doc.

Features:
- Floppy Tool
-- Read/Write/Compare ADF.
-- All four floppy drives.
- Bootblock Tool
-- Write included bootblocks to any floppy drive.
-- Does read and apply the existing filesystem's flags.
-- Able to format the first track to make non-Amiga formatted disks bootable.
- DOS Tool (preview)
-- Read and write files.
-- Volume names are discouraged. Drive names are recommended.
-- Use of RAM: recommended, particularly as destination.
-- If targetting floppy drives (like DF0:), delays to allow drive to settle.
-- Hard disk targets are discouraged, as writes could happen late if at all.
- ROM Tool
-- Dump the Amiga's kickstart rom.

History

1.0.1-newzip (2021-04-03)
- Reissued zip as win7's zip support had trouble unpacking the old one. It does
not like advzip (advcomp) zips.

1.0.1 (2021-04-02)
- RomTool
-- Initialization GUI work outside GUI thread issue fixed.
-- Kickstart detection logic is now slightly more clever.
-- Can now be interrupted mid-dumping.
-- Larger transfer blocks, faster dumping.
-- Timer added.
-- Debug text output added.
- DosTool
-- Target directory can safely contain a trailing slash.
-- Buffer size scales with free RAM, up to 256KB. Faster.
-- Timer added.
- FloppyTool
-- Progressbar added.
- UI improvements.
- Documentation improvements.

1.0.0 (2021-03-25)
- Initial release.
