Aros V4

So I have just got my V4.
It appears to have AROS V7RC6, is there a way to automatically set superscaler to on?
It seems to be off each time I restart. Also the turtle mode enables when you select 0.

(typed on Aweb from my V4 :))

It seems rather unstable at the moment. Have had multiple freezes.
As for the partition sizes, is there the ability to increase/ add new partitions, not had a massive look through everything yet, but rather ask than have to reimage the CF Card.

EDIT: Not able to get much output from VCONTROL either, wont tell me the core version and my serial number is all zeros.
Some options just dont output anything.

Nice that you like Aweb. I like it too.

Aros has some glitches still... We are working on this
and have a significant number of bug fixes for R7, meanwhile I can recommend you to have a look at Coffin.
Coffin is based on OS 3.9 is very stable.

Thanks, I'll give that a go until AROS R7 is out.

So I have started using Coffin R58 and it does seem much more stable.

Though I am still having issues with Vcontrol.
Typing vcontrol cp will give m cpu info as expected but still when typing several commands I get no text output back.

For example typing vcontrol cr just shows a blank line then the prompt again.

I downloaded the core SA_R6.exe and reflashed, but still no output.
Is this maybe normal for a V4, and there is actually nothing wrong?
