Born Again is a utility that allows you to install Mac OS 8 & 8.1 to your 68030 CPU Mac.

With the introduction of Mac OS 8, Apple no longer supported certain 68030 models.

So, Born Again permits these legacy computers to use Mac OS 8 & 8.1.
By using Born Again, you can take advantage of several key features of Mac OS 8.1, like:

Architecture: 68k

This Utility is just fantastic!
I used to use it to let run my IIsi & a Performa 630 with Mac OS 8 – which were actually capable to do so by the way.

Just a gorgeous Utility which was inside my everyday App portfolio with other tools like SerialSpeed 230, A-Dock an so on – back then … Wink

In this sense

I wonder if this would work in Mini vMac some day...

Handy, but it would need to be a 200MHz 68030 to enjoy 8.1 and it's software.
