I am waiting for test results from 8bits4ever. If they find no problems, I will release the new firmware and boot block.

The new firmware that has a better FMPAC, SCC+ support and volume control via the boot block is available in our repository.

I got an email earlier in the week to tell me they are back in stock, now with Gold Plated connectors, for what ever reason that makes it better? https://www.8bits4ever.net/product-page/carnivore2

I heard that dual card adapters don't work correctly. So I would not recommend to use them. Use the single SD card adapter like this one:

The gold plated pads don't oxidize, so they will have better contact with the MSX slot (and therefore less glitches). This will also increase the lifespan of the cartridge board.

You just need the 2x5 jumper pins and no soldering at all. The UB's connector is female, so you can unsert the pins into the connector and stick the other end into the board. When programming, tilt the connector a bit for better connectivity. Here's an example how I upgrade firmware:

This video is for a different board, but you can see how I connect the UB to the board. Every other info is in the Carnivore's readme file.
