Hello everyone, I am a new user of V4 Standalone, I have installed the VBL-OMNI with APOLLO OS R7, Coffin R59 and AmigaOS 3.2, my doubt is how I can upgrade APOLLO OS R7 to R8.

There isn't an upgrade at this time. This is because the image layout and included files changed dramatically between R7 and R8. R8 has also had at least two upgrades since the original R8 was made available for testing. So at this point, only option would be to download the ApolloBoot TRIO, which will allow switching between ApollOS R8 (comes pre-installed), Coffin & Amiga OS 3.2. There will be a newer ApolloBoot OMNI image around the end of Q1, which will be based on ApolloOS 8.1.
