CDTV TF536 Case Closed

Post by dalek »

Finally all the pieces have come together for me and I was able to close the case on the CDTV and have a fully functioning TF536 and CD-ROM drive that still works!

I needed a few things - the patched CDTV ROM from CDTV Land and the firmware from terriblefire that disables the boot flashy rom.

Also a heavily modified sandwich with the CPU soldered directly to the TF536 and the TF536 soldered directly to the relocator.

More details here.

Next goal - A570!

I'm pretty sure that the new extended ROM has been organised so it works with the old TF536 FW if anyone can't upgrade theirs

Really glad this is sorted. I should build a 536 for my CDTV

Hi @dalek if you have any spare PCBs from this project would be happy to purchase one from you :?: Just ordered @go0se re-locator from JLCPCB and then remembered this thread. Have some spare 27C400s lying about so I thought this would be an interesting solution to try. :)
