Here is the mail I sent to "Monte's 20" after I get back home (a few of weeks ago) and tested with my own 41CL:
I just get back home a couple of days ago. Yesterday night finally get my 41CL comfortably installed into a donor CV housing and start some Clonix/NoV's compatibility test.
Good to know that Clonix has been proven useful to move pages to/from 41CL's. Sorry about the serial programmer issue Geoff (they're known not to work with laptops.)
I've tested, Clonix-41 and Clonix-D and they both work as expected. Tested NoV-64 -ver.08r- and it also works as it should. I remember some users reported NoV-64 issues when plugged into 41CL's, please contact me to diagnose the trouble.
Also tested NoVRAM and NoV-32, and they DOES NOT work. Occasionaly, when using an older NoVRAM software version it turns up and seemed to work, but it is not a stable situation whatsoever and trends to crash.
Of course, I'll check the NoVRAM and NoV-32 code in order to find a suitable solution as soon as I can.
Tests have been performed with 41CL "out-of-the-box" (-YFSN 1A) no mods or upgrades.
All the best from the Canary Islands.
When using NoV it assumes port 1 or 2, therefore page 8 *must* be free for proper operation.
I've also tested Real Adv. HEPAX placed into port 2 and another ROM into port 1 and the 41 doesn't turn on or crashes.
As stated above, NoVRAM and NoV-32 are not compatible with CL at the moment, and I'm seeking the causes for this issue.
My best wishes for the upcoming Xmas season.
