there are probably players that play MODs through AY, but I've never heard of any MOD player that plays through covox. Even if you'd find such player, most probably it won't play from HDD or SD, unlike wildplayer.

All sources of configuration in googlecode (see page of ZxEvo http://www.nedopc.com/zxevo/zxevo_eng.php, and google https://code.google.com/p/pentevo/ ).
We give this configuration (named Baseconf) like pattern fo other custom configurations.
But not support another configurations, It must doing authors of configuratins.
We support only Baseconf.

I have look at google code but i can't find the correct files theres a lot of source code there. Also the update metod is not very clear i have to use google translate to read the forum and is very hard to understand.
Please somebody can give me the steps to update to the lastest rom ?, that could by very nice i'm afraid to do it wrong and brick my evo. And please point me some direct link to download the beta rom and the necesary files to do the update.
Also i like to know how the "G" key at the baseconf menu work theres thing like "glut service" that look like some old vercion off the bios and tring to do the flash update i ended in a pong game that play itself. Theres varius roms and pressing symbol shift + hard reset get you straigth to 128 basic why ?.

Thanks and sorry to keep asking stuff but i see theres a lot of potential on the evo is such a fun computer but whitout documentation i'm lost :)

Here are direct links to beta roms:
http://pentevo.googlecode.com/svn/rom/zxevo.rom -- Spectrum ROM
http://pentevo.googlecode.com/svn/avr/c ... evo_fw.bin -- AVR firmware

Put both files to the root of SDcard, then first reflash AVR (hold soft reset while powering on or pressing hard reset), then Spectrum rom (From ERS: rom update)

There is no chance to brick the device: AVR reflashes itself under control of boot code (which is unable to reflash itself -- only working code), and if you ruin Spectrum ROM, Test&Service AVR firmware is here to help you :)

Gluk (not glut :)) is mostly for using with real floppies, since it contains (almost) unchanged TR-DOS rom. Reflash ROM from ERS, not gluk! (0+F12 is to return to ERS)

We've ended up with the documentation in only single language (russian), we are just way too lazy to write docs simultaneously in both langs :)

Great! now i have the beta vercion loaded :D
Says BaseConf: 13.01.2015 beta
AVR Boot: 23.01.2012
The AVR boot need to be updated?.
Also i remember i read on the forum that using the last baseconf you can swap floppy images during software execution using the NMI ?.
Some software and games on .trd format like prince of persia "prince.trd" and a lot of .trd images can by mounted ok, then when you go to TR-DOS boot says "virtual drive not formated" maybe theres some way to mount them or you have write them to real floppys ?.

No, until you have AVR ISP programmer. Even if you have one, you still don't need, since programming connector pinout is nonstandard. And even if you make an adapter, you don't need yet. Because there is no bootloader any freshier than you already have :)

This is in our plans and some preparations are already made, but not yet implemented.

If game is able to use different drive letters instead of swapping disks, try to mount different images to letters A-D.
