I am quite new to the MIST. Could anyone please let me know how to update this new build (minimig-mist-v1.2 (2016-02-21))?

Thank you.

You do not need firmware.bin

With firmware.upg on the root of the SD card, you can go to the firmware menu entry, where you will see that your current firmware is different revision that the one of the disk - here you can upgrade the firmware.

minimig_mist-1.2.rbf you can load the from the "load core" menu, or if you are only using the MIST as an Amiga, you can rename it "core.rbf" on the root of the SD card.

HRTMON.ROM is needed to enable HTRMON, if you don't know what it is, it doesn't matter.

AROS.ROM is of course the AROS kickstart, if you want to play with it.

minimig.art, minimig.bal and minimig.cop you only need if you want to see the boing and info stuff on screen as the core is loaded.

I hope I can get somebody's attention. As reported before, I'm having problems using the new core (v1.2) and firmware update. The system boots fine only at times, but most of the time it gives all kind of random Workbench errors, Guru messages and red flashing screens.

When it boots and things seem OK, trying to play any games would give all kind of messages and freeze the system.

I have another SD card in which I still use core v1.1 and everything works perfectly, well I still have to reboot to be able to get any memory recognized, but everything works fine. I have tried core v1.2 with different brands of cards and memory size, yet with the same results....error messages galore.

Could anybody help me to trouble shoot this issue? Is this a known issue? Thank you.

And you have updated the firmware, it says ATH160221 on the firmware page?
I can only say that I do not have any problems of the kind you describe with 1.2 on my MIST. If you could provide some more specific description of the error messages you get, it could be _much_ more usefull. Also - what version of Amiga OS are you using, what kickstart?

My settings are:
CHIPSET : cpu 68020, turbo none, video pal, chipset AGA, cd32 off
MEMORY : CHIP 2.0, slow NONE, FAST 24 MB (try also with 4 MB), ROM
kick3.1, HRTMON disabled
VIDEO : lores / hires none, scanlines dim, dither SPT
Hardfile Workbench 3.9

And yes, firmware says ATH160221. I am using the file firmaware.bin and firmware.upg posted on February 21 in the Atari Forum. I have copied those two files, plus the new core.rbf to the root of my SD card. Then from the OSD menu I navigated to the Firmware & Core option and Update.

After booting it shows that I'm running v1.2.

These are pictures of the error messages that I am getting:

And when I managed to boot (seldom) and tried to play a game:

And the system crashes.

Honestly, I am not so sure that I am doing the upgrade process correctly. This is the first time since I bought the MiST that I am doing an update.
