You stated "I don't doubt that ROL will finish the OS for the A9". People keep saying the OS is not finished. However the A9home I use certainly seems to have a stable and finished OS. An OS which is later than Adjust but prior to RO6.
What people are waiting for it would appear is not ROL, but AD6. AD6 have recently made available via CJE a USB update (an update that I have had for sometime). I expect the next update will be to the sounddma module, this fixes the problem with the sound stopping. An A9home compatible version of RO6 is the next thing we A9homers are holding out for. Not having RO6 on the A9home is not in anyway stopping the A9home being fully used.
