3.1.4 effectively is a drop-in replacement for a 3.1 ROM.

In situations where you have some libs or similar loaded in the startup-sequence with loadmodule you might get an error. Or maybe if you patch scsi.device of 3.1. Other than that you get instant support for large drives etc.
Doesn't 3.1.4 exclude workbench.library from the ROM? You won't be booting far if you didn't already have that on a hard drive or aren't booting from the 3.1.4 Install disk.

3.1 excluded it.

... for A4000 afair.

I had 3.1.4 and it was a drop-in replacement. On a flash chip, though, so I didn’t literally exchange it. Just the ROM image.

I can only highly recommend getting an A500flash or similar.

Thanks for posting that oldbull, BloodyCactus must have been correct. The machine models are for data collection, nothing more (once you've entered the correct order page).

So what happened to 3.1.1 - 3.1.3? It seems that 3.1- was not released by Commodore but by Amiga Technologies as 3.1 was still in development when C= went BK.
