A "new" piece of software, quietly created 15 years ago, that allows Amiga 1000 users to load their Kickstart 1.3 or 3.1 (or "morph" between the two on a soft reset after loading 3.1) off a single disk has been discovered. The software is called TwinKick and is downloadable via Aminet. The linked post includes detailed instructions on how to create this disk.

Being able to switch between the two Kickstarts is pretty incredible. Although seeing 3.1 load onto a Amiga 1000 - off a floppy - is pretty mind blowing by itself.

Reverse issue

Many MANY years back when I got my Amiga 500, I had the reverse problem - many games required KS 1.0/1.1, especially early EOA games like Seven Cities of Gold and Archon. So I made a boot disk that loaded KS 1.0 or 1.1 into the upper part of chip ram or bogo ram if available, then patched it to run at the new address. Worked great for those old games.
