I could also help with testing, but I don't really want to do anything that could possibly brick it. (I don't have the money to buy a new one, I'm just a broke teenager ::))

Will this render the OS installation unusable afterwards?
Is there a way to reinstall the original ROM after I did that ?

Actually it depends on the format of the drive.  The drive will need to be formatted with OS 9 drivers, which it probably doesn't so you would have to reformat.
And which original ROM are you asking about? The OS 9 one which will not work at all?

But yes it is not permanent.

You're absolutely right. There is no ROM...my bad. Thanks a lot.

Interestingly, QEMU boots quite happily with FIRSTFUNC nopped out completely. But before we try that on the mini, could somebody please please please try that Mac OS ROM file that I recently posted?
