I have 3 i-openers, and I would like to upgrade one of them to a K6-450 (or a K6-500, if anyone if that is possible...) Anyways, I've spent a lot of time searching through the messages, and have just gotten more confused about the upgrading process. Which one of the following units would be the easiest to upgrade?
Winchip, no goop, intact pins, nothing but net screen. I think this is a V1, and it currently runs linux off of a hard drive
Rise 266, no goop, intact pins, new boot screen, Yamaha sound chip. I flashed this with the patched V5 bios on fr44dr1ve, and it will boot Jailbait or a hard drive successfully. I think this is a V4, but I'm not sure. Can anyone clear this up for me?
Rise 266, no goop, intact pins, Yamaha sound chip, and SW4 switch below CPU. I have not modded this one at all, but I am thinking that it may be that easiest one to upgrade. I have no idea what version number it is, though. It's like my unit #2, except #2 doesn't have the SW4 switch (to set the CPU voltage). Any ideas?
So, which of these would be the best for installing a K6-450 cpu? I will run Linux on the upgraded system, so using SoftFSB is not possible (unless anyone knows of any alternative for linux...)
