QuoteAmstrad Plus/GX4000 has a chip for ACID protection bypass.The following adapters include a solderless jumper (one jumper is included, and extra jumpers can be purchased): Amstrad Plus/GX4000 (required for ACID bypass).3.5mm jack allows connecting a BackButton or GenAssister, allowing easy navigation back to menu interface (some systems, such as ColecoVision/Amstrad/Atari, require an included solderless jumper).Supports cartridge images (BIN/CPR) up to 1MB in size.Real-time-clock remembers date & time even after shutoff. Useful when creating new files or versions.One-button diagnostic mode helps you identify system faults (on most systems).Upgradeable via MicroSD card.

So now it's nearly dead, because you can't easily reproduce it without specs.voilà !
Quote from: eto on 22:01, 23 August 23Clever and simple design where a simple adapter makes it work with different systems. In the end, it's probably just a (Teensy?) microcontroller that behaves as ROM and can react on specific actions to load images from SF card into its RAM. I guess we could use a similar approach with e.g. a Teensy, a few level shifters and a NoAcid IC to come up with a community / Public Domain successor to the C4CPC. As it would not require a FPGA it would be easy to replicate for many - and some will offer it on Ebay for a few bucks more.

Quote from: darkhalf on 03:35, 10 December 23So backbit is pulling the /SRST line to probably work around the SIN/CLR ASIC glitch method (where CPCPLus does not reset) as discussed in the other threads
QuoteAny idea how that works? Or a link to the other threads?
QuoteRequired to facilitate ACID bypass. Connect jumper to internal reset
