History[edit]

Back in 2005 when Henry from ReActiveMicro first returned to the Apple II he found several IIgs systems obtained were ROM0 and couldn't run GS/OS v6.0.1. He also found that some ROM0 IIgs users wanted to upgrade their systems to ROM1. However there isn’t a simple way to do so since Apple used a nonstandard ROM. Henry then found a way to use two Machine Pin Sockets to allow a 27C1001 EPROM to work in place of Apple’s 531000 OTP ROM IC.
