i have just purchased the rasberry PI4 (anticipating its arrival) and it has the Bluetooth and WiFi functions, will AmiKit work with it?

side question: I would like to set it up to be able to toggle between different Amiga Emulations... Thoughts?

Hi ShadowRider, and welcome to the Forum!

Raspberry Pi4 is a completely different CPU architecture than regular PC or Mac. AmiKit does't work on it. Yet! As soon as I finish Vampire port of AmiKit, I will start working on the Raspberry version. Stay tuned!

Cheers,
Jan

Thank you, I greatly appreciate it.

Meanwhile you can check AmiKit XE for Windows, Mac or Linux or free AmiKit 8 for Windows or free AmiKit 9 for Mac.

Cheers!

While it's not supported at the moment, you can run Amikit XE on the rPi4. The tricky part is copying over the harddisk image to a format that'll work with Amiberry, but after that the only things I had to do was to disable the Amikit splash image in WBStartup and ShowAmiga96 in the startup-sequence.
I have a Bash script in the works that generates an Amiberry compatible hdf from the Amikit installation files, if you're interested. It requires FS-UAE and cabextract to be installed and probably only works in Linux.
