@darthThanks for info. Do you know maybe if Hexxen updated his update-pi repo? (Piesces r3 I use now has Hexxen's updater included)
there are some newer fws, I just got:

You mean Hexxeh? Then secondly if you're talking about his rpi-update script, then yes. I took a quick look at it and if the foundation doesn't change things too much it should just work. [EDIT] nm, I see that you mean his version of raspbian... dunno, as I'd never heard about it until you made me google it... [/EDIT]
The fw & kernel update are actually by the foundation/broadcomm not the distro. (IOW yes, do run rpi update if you're kernel on /boot is not August 7th and your /opt/vc/bin/bc<whateveritscalled> version is older than mine then try your disp again. Still no work, ask hexxeh or someone not sure where though. (This is why the foundation recommends their raspbian build... more forum support as it has it's own top-level forum v. the lesser known distros either just have a thread in the parent distro forum or are lumped in generic projects...[/EDIT]
Beyond that I haven't looked as I'm working on getting atari800, vice, and maybe frodo compiled. atari800 compiled but I've yet to test it(will do so momentarily), but I've been looking trying to figure out the settings for vice to just have it compile the c64 emulator.
Been thinking about picking up one of those FPGA boards, e.g. c-one(c64 geared even w/a a cart port, but I never owned an actual c64 as I had an Atari 800 & Apple ][s), experiment s(STe "emulation" via FPGA implementation of hw but I want to wait for the board that can handle Falcon "emulation"), etc.
FPGAs aren't really exactly emulation as they're reconfigurable chips on which other hw can be implemented in hw... there's an FPGA extender for the c-one so it can "emulate" an Amiga A500 as well, also has spectrum zx and a few others... but they're all pretty expensive... over $500 for c-one + FPGA extender, c. $700 for the current experiment s board and that's pretty much a bare board minimal memory, no PSU, etc. c-one also uses compact flash which I expect must be kind of expensive nowadays as I don't really know of anything that uses it any longer excepting maybe some niche products...
