BK_IntAckFix1-highly recommended040+This is a BlizKick (Harry Sintonen) module which fixes the interrupt acknowledge bug which occurs on fast 68040/60 machines and is (to my knowledge) present in all kickstart versions (also in piru's exec44).http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/BK_IntAckFix0.1ROM
5
CardPatch1-highly recommended- Kickstart 37.299+
- A600/A1200
CardPatch patches this "slow bug" and other bugs in card.resource. The CardResetCard() function is patched and each "new" card is reseted after it is inserted in the PCMCIA slot.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/CardPatch1.2Test on real Amiga
6
CardReset1-highly recommended- Kickstart 37.300+
- A600/A1200
CardReset forces a high level on pin 58 of the Amiga PCMCIA slot (reset signal). A PC Card must be plugged within the PCMCIA slot. GAYLE does not assert the reset signal when the slot is empty. CardReset also enables or disables the BVD2/speaker signal (pin 62 of the PCMCIA slot) to Amiga right channel audio output.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/CardReset3.0Test on real Amiga
7
CMQ0301-highly recommended030+This is a small patch which replace the CopyMem and CopyMemQuick functions of exec.library. These functions are optimized for the 68030 processor.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/CMQ0301.1There's also 060 version.PassedROM
8
CompactFlashDevice1-highly recommended- A1200/A600
- OS2.0+
- "CompactFlash to PCMCIA/ATA" adapter card
fat95 file system
CFD ("CompactFlashDevice") supports using CompactFlash memory cards on the PCMCIA-Port of an A600 or A1200http://aminet.net/disk/misc/cfd.lha1.32There's a v1.33 but the source is unknown. Strange.Passed
9
datatypes.library1-highly recommendedhttps://www.amigaforever.com/classic/download/45.4Passed
10
FBlit1-highly recommendedFBlit patches some OS functions that normally use the blitter, such that they can use the CPU, and consequently may function outside chip mem. The patched functions are also faster and will suffer less from colour flicker on non-interleaved data. In addition, it can force non-displayable bitmaps to be allocated in fast memory for named tasks.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/fblit3.79aPassed
11
Ftext1-highly recommendedRenders text in fastram for a nice speedup.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/FText1.7Passed
12
PFS3 All-In-One1-highly recommendedFFSThis is improved all-in-one 100% OS 1.x/2.x/3.x/68000+ compatible port of recently open sourced Professional File System III (PFS3), SVN version. Sources available in AROS source tree.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/disk/misc/pfs3aio2.3
13
SetPatch1-highly recommendedOS2.0+http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/SetPatch_43.6b43.6bPassed
14
StackAttack21-highly recommendedIf you are running many programs that patch system functions (such as commodities and hacks) it might happen that sometimes your machine crashes without real "motivation". This is often caused by a too low stack of many programs (because of the patched routines increasing the stack usage of the corresponding system function). StackAttack tries to kill these GURUs by patching CreateProc(), CreateNew-Proc(), RunCommand() and SystemTagList(). It alters the stack passed to these routines depending on what parameters you supply to StackAttack.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/StackAttack22.9Shall I use StackAttack release 1 instead of StackAttack2?Passed
15
SystemPatch1-highly recommendedIt's merely a try to implement a patch that could group part of known patches for 68k Amigas, with some implemented by me. A sort of "all in one" patch.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/SystemPatch2992.99This needs proper verification as this is a set of patches, to check what exactly it contains, whether it duplicates any patch on the list or make interferences.
16
Ver1-highly recommendedOS2.04+this is a bugfixed replacement for the shell command c:version 40.1 (9.2.93). this fix prints the datestamp in a right way for files created since 1.1.2000.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/sys/Ver4.05Passed
17
Blazewcp2-recommended- 020+
- SetPatch (optional)
Very fast Replacement for the OS chunky pixel functions WritePixelLine8(), WritePixelArray8() and WriteChunkyPixels(). Uses 32bit Chunky 2 Planar routines to write longwords to chipram. This makes it fast on 020+ cpus and REALLY fast on machines with 32bit chipram (A1200, A3000, A4000).http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/Blazewcp1.74Passed
18
ConPaste2-recommendedConPaste is a 2.0 commodity that allows you to paste clipped text into anything. Paste into string gadgets. Paste into any text application. In this new version, ConPaste drops its priority by 1 when pasting text to allow sufficient processor time for the receiving task or window to process the text.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/cdity/ConPaste37.25Passed
19
FastIPrefs2-recommendedNotifyintuition.libraryhttp://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/boot/FastIPrefs403540.35Passed
20
fat952-recommendedOS2.0+ for full functionality"fat95" is a DOS handler to mount and use Win95/98 volumes just as if they were AMIGA volumes.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/disk/misc/fat953.18Passed
21
FullPalette2-recommendedOS3.0+The FullPalette system allows you to edit and save ALL the 256 Workbench colors rather than just eight of them as the standard Palette editor does.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/wb/FullPalette2240.22Passed
22
icon.library2-recommended020+The icon.library has been written completely in optimized ASM code with IconBeFast 2 already built in. It works much faster now and is also a lot smaller than the original icon.library.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/libs/IconLib_46.446.4.443ROM
23
Installer2-recommendedhttps://www.amigaforever.com/classic/download/43.3Passed
24
KingCON2-recommendedZShell
vinced
KingCON is a console-handler that optionally replaces the standard 'CON:' and 'RAW:' devices. It is 100% compatible, but adds some VERY useful featureshttp://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/shell/KingCON_1.31.3Passed
25
lha.run2-recommendedhttp://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/arc/lha2.12Passed

MSys2-recommendedOS2.0This package contains 5 AmigaDOS replacement commands.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/sys/MSys-1.21.2Passed
29
MUI2-recommended- 020+
- Installer
MUI is the abbreviation of Magic User Interface, an object-oriented BOOPSI-driven user interface framework for AmigaOS-based operating systems. It features a flexible user interface where end-users can define the Look&Feel of applications using MUI in high detail. Beside this end-user flexibility MUI comes with a wide variety of so-called Custom Classes which developers using MUI can use in their applications and which provide additional functionality (e.g. such as a full-fledged text editor). This third-party custom class functionality as well as the high user flexibility in defining the Look&Feel of a MUI applications makes MUI the most advanced user interface framework for AmigaOS computer systems today.https://muidev.de/downloads/3.9-2015R1Passed
30
Notifyintuition.library2-recommendedKS2.x+Many programmers feel the lack of not having the possibility to wait for the opening or closing of a screen or window. This library gives you the power to wait for those actions without your program having to patch intuition.library.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/libs/NotInt242.40PassedDependency

34
text.datatype2-recommendedOS3.0This is a replacement of the text.datatype. It should be compatible with the orginal text.datatypes available within the OS. I wrote it because the orginal text.datatype lacks the support of marking and copying passages. With this version you also can search through the whole text.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/dtype/text-dt44.5Passed
35
AddTools3-optionalOS2.04It allows you to add your own items to the "Tools" menu of AmigaOS_2.04's Workbench Screen. Unlike other menu utilities, which only add the ability to run programs by menu, AddTools can also pass them some parameters on "the fly" by selecting some icons before choosing the desired menu item.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/cdity/AddTools_1.201.20Passed
36
Altabber3-optionalOS3.0+YawsIf you know what happens on a Windows-equipped PC when you press Alt-Tab, well you have the exact idea of what Altabber does, except that the Alt key is replaced by the left Amiga key.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/cdity/Altabber1.5

Run with detach3-optionalOS3.0+Way back when I had A500 with AmigaOS 1.3 I had program called RunBack, it was able to launch programs on the backgroud. I happily forgot it when I upgraded to AmigaOS 2. Nowadays with fast CPUs and harddrives I load 10 mb worth of programs in my system startup. Many of the programs require that they are `run'. And every one of them appears in `status' process list. I wasn't too annoyed by this, until the first available CLI number was above 20. I decided to do something about it. Result is run v44. Run v44 replaces AmigaOS 3.0+ internal `run' command and is 100% backwards compatible. It is loosely based on internal run command in Kickstart 3.1.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/sys/run4444.1

It is now possible to set protection bits for owner, group and others. The icon image may be changed by simply dropping an alternative icon into the window. All gadgets have hotkeys and the font is configurable. Tool types can be sorted/cleared/restored or added from the tool types of other icons.http://m68k.aminet.net/package/util/wb/SwazInfo18b1.8bPassed
