The A600GS uses AmiSphere services for all downloads and system updates. It is therefore necessary to register for an AmiSphere user account. This can be done directly in the A600GS AmiSphere menu or alternatively on the AmiSphere website:
The A600GS system software can be upgraded through the internet to provide extra features and functionality as well as bug fixes.
System updates can only be accessed by registering the A600GS serial key code on your AmiSphere user account. Once you are logged in to AmiSphere, the latest system software revision number will be reported. If an update is available it can be downloaded and the system can be upgraded.
IMPORTANT: Do not switch off, reset or interrupt your A600GS while it is installing the system update
The computer is given the GS suffix which is short for Game System.
There is a long running tradition, started originally by Commodore engineers, on having The B-52s song titles on Amiga compatible hardware. The A600GS board is no exception to this tradition as it features Good Stuff on the silkscreen.
