I don't recommend it. I recommend backing up your original SDK and given it a useful name like SDK-53.20. Then install the new SDK and only copy over things when you need them.

You can always do a diff between the two directory trees to see what is added/removed/etc. that way as well.

"Update 7" would be most appreciated for us who went for PreOS4, 4,0 (backbones or whatever it was) and buyed 4,1. If the XE could be "the" machine now or was I just investing and waiting for 11 years;)

Seriously. I'd fire it up again as it's been re-done and show it to all my "jealous"
pc friends with the all in all no hassle net+printing(HP-ColourLaser)+some retro games;)

Agree .. at this point why not making also a proper ISO ?

Installing manually 6 or more updates over an Update 1 installation is a bit messy ..

They can release both versions: like 2.1 and 3.0 in good old days.

However, this year release of 4.2 would be too good to be true. I always hope for miracles.

Agreed, as with X1000 FE release, plus including newer RadeonHD 2D driver, original
AmigaOS CDs can`t boot X1000 with newer RadeonHD.

i imagine it might be difficult, since the entity releasing the updates (the development team lead?) might have
a) problems to secure an iso against piracy (it seems there are considerations about that)
b) no clarified rights or allowance for release of the entire content of the operating system it releases the patches for.

at least thats what would explain releasing patches for patches since six releases, that have to be applied subsequently, which is definitely not user friendly and rather problem prone..

@wawa

The issue with an ISO is the amount of work it takes to create and test it. Nothing else that I am aware off. Please stop spreading FUD and stick to enjoying your pure and snowy white genuine amiga hardware al beit corruptd with the non genuine AROS

I suspect something's got lost in translation here, but if you update with Update 6 and run AmiUpdate until the subsequent updates are all on, that's going to get you close(r) to what any Update 7 would be.

building an iso from a buncha files is that much of work? isnt that the purpose of the whole system to work correctly altogether? so how would you proceed testing the added components if not with the whole (clean) system anyway, which a system iso actually happens to be? when testing aros im usually using a (clean if neccessary) nightly build boot/install iso, which is how it is recommended, too. isnt that reasonable?

neither is my hardware snowy white but beige and a little scratched and dusty nor in any way corrupted because it runs aros at times.

If you just keep using AmiUpdate you don't need any "Update 7" or anything else. There is no need to wait for anything.

Yes, we are planning to create a new ISO for the next update whether it is "Update 7' or "4.2" or any other label.

In the mean time, just use AmiUpdate and enjoy not waiting long periods of time between fixes.

@all
I would also like some help to work on a tool to create a bootable ISO image provided any SYS: partition. Please email me if you would like to help out.

Don't bother. He's not worth you time Andy. I stopped bothering long ago.

just that i dont see any technical reason an os4 user needs to patch his system over and over and piece for piece, which was always criticized in case of boing bags and third party patches on genuine amiga, instead of just copying the whole content of the new version of the system over their sys partition.
there are several complete system compiles for different platforms that are built automatically every night in aros repository. something like that shouldnt be a problem to be done for os4 users as soon as its ready for (somewhat) stable release.
