Portable AmiKit MK2: Digital Download available

Portable AmiKit MK2 (8.5.1) is now available as a digital download at Merry Christmas!

Name your price (0 or more), download and burn it on your own Amiga flash disk!

Boot AmiKit anywhere and enjoy its special "Rabbit Hole" feature which enables you to run Linux apps from AmiKit desktop!

This version was originally released on a branded solid metal bootable USB flash drive for the Amiga 30th birthday party in Neuss, Germany.

Since this limited collector's item was sold out very quickly, we decided to release this special Amiga 30th Years Edition as a digital download.



Portable AmiKit MK2 contains a very smallweight "live boot" environemnt called AmiPUP, which is based on Slacko Puppy Linux distro (doesn't boot on Mac, though). It is visualy modified to look like AmiKit and it contains WinUAE emulator with AmiKit files pre-installed (you still need OS files, though). At boot, AmiPUP loads EVERYTHING into RAM, so all applications load blazing fast! The host system is never touched!

Hi, I have downloaded this and installed to USB. Booted it on my laptop, used the romfind and successfully installed the kickstart rom from AF cd. On the next step to start Amikit (with AF cd mounted and selected as source) WinUAE crashes immediately after pressing Start. Any ideas?

Hi, I have downloaded the iso file and installed it to USB. After rising of the AmiPup screen , there is no icon "install instructions". How can I search now for the "Kickstart" roms and install the AMIGA OS?

Any ideas?

Thanks Keech.

Any chance you could use different OS? Eg. OS 3.5 or OS XL?

Btw. you don't need AmiKit to play such games. You can boot them directly. Run the emulation, press F12, insert game disk images into virtual drives, reset and play. (Maybe you need to adjust the configuration a bit to be more Amiga 1200 or 500 like. And remove AmiKit harddrive so the system boots the game disk and not the harddrive).

You might want to buy Amiga Forever package which is the best for playing games (and it also includes AmiKit).
