I've just posted an auction item onto Ebay for a set of RISC OS 3.70 ROMs,
with Install Floppy discs and Instructions. The listing can be found at:

Not criticising - just wondered what use are these to anyone?

AFAIK They came in RPC 600 and 700, and are mostly superfluous from
being replaced with SAs.

Do they go in anything below RPC 600?

No, those were 3.5 and 3.6 - these /are/ the SA ones!

They should be, as we've had someone on here recently mentioning they are
still on RISC OS 3.5, so are limited to 512MB discs.


3.7 came with the SA upgrade, so probably from being replaced with RISC OS 4
or Adjust.


No.

Thanks John and Druck, you beat me to it. As there were no others on Ebay at
the moment, I thought I'd get these up there, as I also remember someone
saying they are still on 3.5 recently.

I also have a set of RISC OS 3.5 ROMs (free to a good home) which would be
completely useless to anyone - unless they couldn't get hold of something
better and had a fault with their own 3.5 ROMs - pretty unlikely I think.

Red Squirrel won't work with RO 3.5, so not even that :-(

I kept a RO 3.5 Risc PC for a while for that reason, but when some 3.7 ROMs
became available to me it got an update, as I only wanted 2 Risc PCs (4 /
Select) and not a whole family. The older version was thus pushed out, but I
don't fancy repeatedly swapping ROMs in and out.


So it looks like I'm into the realms of these :-O

I'm not suprised you'd missed it, given that Red squirrel does run 3.5

Are there any files (other than r035 rom images) required to achieve
this?
