A1222 Guide: Online Resources

Community, Help, and Software Links

You've probably reached the end of this guide and hopefully found more answers than you had questions, but should you need more information on your A1222, where to download software, where to buy hardware, or where you can ask questions, here is a handy list of Amiga-related web-sites that I've got bookmarked in my Amiga browsers. If anything doesn't work, please let me know (link).

One other item you'll need to do is set up your online accounts with both Hyperion and A-EON. These days most software updates can be found and downloaded with tools on your A1222, specifically AmiUpdate; for software from A-EON, you have to use their own Updater software. Your A1222 should have come with a serial number for AmigaOS. One of the first things you need to do is register your copy at the Hyperion web site. Once you do, and you have a user name and password, write them down. You'll need them to logon at Hyperion for downloadable OS updates and for AmiUpdate to grab updated components directly from your A1222 itself. You'll also need to sign up for an AmiSphere account if you want the A-EON updates for firmware and any components that are provided in their Enhancer product, such as the graphics drivers.
