A few interesting things have happened in QNX area in a last month or so.
First of all, there is a QNX BSP for Raspberry PI:
It’s an early developer release, not fully complete, but it does boot and work. It adds an interesting os beside RISC OS and Plan9 to the Pi family. The BSP is available from SHC Products. They have a binary and source code version.
Secondly, in the archaeology department, this has surfaced:
But even more interestingly I’ve found a beta / preliminary release v0.4 of QNX:
QNX 1.2 Boot/Kernel disk is laser copy protected if i remember well. You will need something like a Kryoflux device to dump it successfully.
Interesting, I have Kryoflux, will try. Do you know if 1.2 disk images are already available?
As far as i know you’re one of the few people in the world that has a remain copy of QNX1.2. So i dunno that someone really could made QNX disk images, let alone publish them.
Awesome discovery, can’t wait to see screenshots and hear of your adventures with these early QNX versions myself. I occasionally catch myself missing my PlayBook (battery wouldn’t charge anymore)…
And try to use Teledisk or Copy II PC to make a image ? , eplcopy perhaps
I also have a Kryoflux and do archiving. I think it would be wise to archive this as there are few copies around these days.
Let me know if anyone has images or needs help doing it.
Hi, Did you manage to archive this?
Not yet but working on it. I just purchased a new Kryoflux I can’t find my older one.
