Emulator and Decompiler

So I've seen someone had said he figured out a way to get the emulator working.

I was wondering if anyone else has been able to get this going? So far I've figured out what the emulator is, and how to decompile the navboot file, and tried to get the shell to run, but i can't seem to get it to work..

I'm posting this here, hoping that someone else wants to play with this, and share information.

Decompiler Download

os9exec - os9 Emulator Download

Is this to emulate the nav software on a PC? Been looking for this for a long time.

Tell me how you set it up and i;ll try it out.

Hey Jochen: I see your back from holiday, i sent you some navcoder files the other day...

Anyway, that's about where I'm at....

Some things for people to look try:
- Open the files in the root of the Firmware upgrade CD in Notepad, Lots of junk in those files, but some useful info in plain text
- Decompile the navboot file.. go to a command prompt > and type decompile navboot (you might want to copy navboot and the decompiler to thier own directory)... once extracted you'll see lots of files, including one called shell... (which to me looks like the beginings of the os9 OS)
