Konami RTC bypass mod - a work in progress

Post by Awbacon » August 23rd, 2019, 1:26 pm

It's a work in progress, but I am getting closer every time I sit down and work on the project. I wanted to document my thought process and work flow in a series of videos, even if they end in me totally failing lol.

So far I've managed to get OG hardware running a slight variant of the original bios I wrote, and it boots fine. Still haven't identified where in hex the full boot routine exists on the disc / in the bios, but getting there! Hopefully will be helpful not for just M2 owners, but any owner of an RTC backed pcb, as I am sure Konami was pretty consistent about their designs.
