Does this have consequences for Coffin, AmiKit Vampire, or other AmigaOS version to be run on the V4?
In the AmiKit Vampire notes I read that AmiKit doesn't boot with AROS kickstart and a AmigaOS rom file should be placed on microSD card to be picked up by V4.
Is this still correct?

I had issues with the OS Rom included with Coffin 57 on my V4 with the latest core. I could boot it if I loaded the A1200 ROM from SD first (newer cores require holding the right mouse button down during power up to read it off the microSD card). I renamed the coffin.rom file, and copied the A1200 ROM to coffin.rom (these in the devs:Kickstarts folder. Coffin 57 booted just fine after that.

AmiKit should boot in a similar fashion if it wont work with the AROS ROM. I did install AmikitXE Vampire edition on my V4, but have had issues getting screen displays larger than 640 x 480 to work at all. Coffin didn't exhibit that issue.
