Installation

To install from CD (No PC):
	
	Brief: Burn disk to CD, boot it, use the flash option, flash your cart.
	
    You'll only need the CD one time!
    - Burn \PSX\UNIROM_BOOTDISC_8.x.CUE with ImgBurn. Pick the lowest speed on old hardware.
    - Jam your sensor down and do the swap trick to boot the disk if it's not chipped
    ( don't stare at the fucking laser, for fuck's sake don't stare at the fucking laser )
    - Install via CD at the flash menu.
	
    - UNIROM_STANDALONE - just Unirom on the cart
    - UNIROM_WITHCAETLA - Unirom + Caetla on the one cart [ will need something larger than 128k! ]        
    - Done

To install from another cart already running Unirom 8 (No PC):
	
	Brief: Hotswap carts and copy the contents to another.
	
	Warning: read and fully accept the warning on screen.
	
    Boot with the existing cartridge running
    Select the Clone option
	Unplug it
    Plug the new cart in and flash
    ( You can also boot from one cart, unplug it switch to the other and flash from CD)


To upgrade a cart running Unirom 4,6,7b, or via PSXSerial:
	
    Using nops, temporarily stick the bootdisc version into RAM
    "nops /oldexe unirom_s.exe COM8" (or whatever COM your serial adapter is on via devmgmt.msc)

    Now you've got the temporary version, tell it to write to the cart's EEPROM:
	nops /rom unirom_standalone.rom COM8
	OR
	nops /rom unirom_withcaetla.rom COM8
    
Upgrade a cart already running Unirom8

    nops /rom unirom_standalone.rom COM8
	OR
	nops /rom unirom_withcaetla.rom COM8

Upgrade a cart running a Unirom7b beta (Never officially released):

    nops /oldrom unirom_standalone.rom COM8


"Can I use the parallel port?"		
    Unirom 8 *currently* has no PIO support but nopp (notpsxpio) is planned. //TODO
    If you have the Caetla version you can use catflap w/ giveio or whatever over LPT1 though.
	Or load the XFlash CD and send the bootdisc that way, and as before
	
	nops /rom unirom_standalone.rom COM8
	OR
	nops /rom unirom_withcaetla.rom COM8
	


"But what if I'm on linux!"	    
    use mono to launch nops.exe


"How does it differ from other firmwares?"

	Caetla and Xplorer support cheats but are closed source.
	
    nocash bios is basically a full replacement + nocash unlock + vcd player (closed source)

    n00bROM has some fun features like exception trapper, planned ROM filesystem, is open source but all MIPS asm.

    Unirom8 is has other stuff like import player, XFlash support, complete serial utility, hex editor, open sourced in C.
	(And can be put on the same cart as Caetla if you still want cheats, etc)
    
	Whatever works for you.

Can I install Unirom alongside <whatever>?

	Caelta: yes
	XPlorer: possible but not out of the box
	n00bROM: at the time of writing no, but when EXE embedding is ready, yes
	Unirom7: possibly but not out of the box. (no memory collisions)
	NoCash BIOS: no idea!

Instructions + hidden keys

General:

	Circle - Exit
	Triangle - Return to BIOS

Flashing:

	L1 + L2 - Hold if Unirom doesn't recognise your cart try anyway (128kb)
	R1 + R2 - Same thing but tells it 256k is fine. (Xplorer carts, etc)
	Note: No guarantees!
	
Gaming:
	
	R1 - Quick Boot (or mash X)
	L1 + R1 - Boot slowly (good for struggling drives)

Development:
	
	Square = Toggle fast SIO (115200 vs 518400). Same as nops /fast
	L1 + Square = Enable debug core. Same as nops /debug

Reserved:
	
	L2, Start, Select
