I just verified that I could update my M8189 with the same old boot
ROMs you have with the 23-380E4 / 23-381E4 ROM images programmed into
a couple of MCM68766 EPROMs.
The M8189 11/23+ now identifies itself as KDF11B-BH ROM V1.0 during
The MAP feature in the newer ROMs is always nice to have to when
reconfiguring boards to make sure you have the CSR jumpers set
correctly. The ANSI console mode is interesting too but doesn't
really add anything much unless you like menus.
I noticed that the switch pack switches have different meaning than
the old ROMs and was going to ask if anyone has documentation for the
switches with the new ROMs, but found that the switches are documented
in EK-245AA-MG-001 which you can find on http://www.vt100.net/manx/
I think the ROM upgrade on my 11/23+ was worth the bother of digging
out the EPROM programming. Luckily I happened to have some blank
68766's on hand.
