Thank you glossywhite, I think this guide will be helpful to many of us sooner or later
I don't think so, I very strongly doubt the UART boot protocol is Kermit. However, you can use the Windows utility okay in Wine. I've tried it before, it works fine.
There is no transfer protocol in UART boot.
The processor (Pollux) just awaits 16k of data and after that the processor jumps to the start of RAM where the 16k are stored.
I simply used 'dd' or 'cat' for transferring UART boot from a linux machine to the Wiz (Didj).
You're welcome - I could not have done this without you!. Oh, so when I have done:
cat UART.nb0 > /dev/ttyUSB0
What do I do next, to trigger the UART menu?
cat UART.nb0 > /dev/ttyUSB0 && minicom
you can substitute minicom with any other terminal program of your choice. As soon 'cat' finished 'minicom' gets started.

EDIT: !! Where did you get that source code? I have some good experience writing serial interface stuff on Linux, I should be able to write something compatible.
Exophase said:Huh, I don't know where my modified post went. Anyway, what I found was that adding some things related to serial port to system.reg made it work in Wine:
Actually found this by looking at the source, though. So unless you're morally opposed to using Wine this should work, for now.
And yes, I was able to unbrick my Wiz. Awesome. Now when someone complains about glossywhite I can at least say that it's because of him that my Wiz works. Hopefully this can fix things for x68000 too.
I was wondering, why do your instructions say to hold the power switch down? I didn't do this because it would have been really cumbersome - figured I'd try w/o doing it first to see if it works since it wouldn't really hurt to try it again later (can't brick it worse than it is..). Worked fine without doing it.
