Kickstart Switcher
Eliminates The Need For Disk-Based Kickstart And So Makes The A1000 Boot Faster
Two Sockets Allow Both 1.3 And 2.0 ROMs Installed At Once
Can Switch Between ROMs Using The Keyboard Without Shutting Off The Computer
If Only One ROM Is Installed, The A1000 Can Be Switched Back To Disk-Based Operation For Pre-1.3 Software Compatibility
Connects To The 68000 Socket
Installation Involves The Replacement Of A Soldered PAL Chip (6J On The Daughterboard)
Does Not Allow Using The Freed Up 256 KB Kickstart RAM – The Larger Kickstart 2.0 Uses That Address Space
