Jeffrey Lee has been fixing some of the problems with the IOMD version of RISC OS 5. The detection of memory now works, as does scrolling, CMOS RAM, and setting the mouse type. That means the OS should now be usable from emulators, once a new ROM image has been built.

The biggest hurdle for loading onto real hardware is the lack of ADFS and network drivers. Emulators will use HostFS/EmuFS and their own networking facilities, so they can work around this for the time being.

New ROM now on ROOL website, and it works in RPCemu. See the above thread for the necessary tweaks.
