Have you had the time yet to pop your box open and read the numbers on the chips?

I don't want to bump this again but I would really, really really like it if I could get the numbers for those chips and a dump of that GAL chip.

Thanks.
Even if I can get a binary dump of it we should be safe.

Since it appears that Helf is still looking for someone to dump the GAL chip, can anyone else who has a daydream box see if they can get that GAL chip dumped or tell us the numbers on those two chips?

Well, if someone was sensible enough to dump the GAL chip (which they wern't and thus didn't, Helf D<) we would of probably had enough information by now to be able to make our own daydream boxes.
All we need to know is the identity of two chips and get the GAL chip dumped.

1. I didn't have the hardware or know-how or know anyone locally with it
2. If the security stuff has been enabled on the GAL, there is effe all you can do to dump it and you will have to poke bits into it and read the outcome and try to duplicate its functionality through trial and error.

Have fun with that.

BuMP.
Managed to gather a complete four chip set of LC II Roms. They should do the job for filling the requirement for Apple ROM chips.
I still have not yet managed to find the numbers on the scratched chips, nor have I managed to get a dump of the GAL.

Good news, I've managed to get a part number off one of the remaining chips.

Hello NeXT community: even better news I have tracked down the original developers of Daydream. I sent them a message asking if they would help us resurrect Daydream as they were very cool. Stay tuned , I'll seeif they'll join the forum as well. Best regards Rob Blessin
These guys are good and may be able to help us update NeXTstep as well
