I've been trying to get a new SR-type circuit going just to try something different. Does anybody have any ideas on how to turn the following circuit into an SR-type circuit?

Your circuit won't work. Are you sure you want to do it with transistors? You can use any flip flop chip more easily.

Schematic with some whitespace removed:

What voltage is VCC? What will use the output?

I'm sorry, the diagram I posted was a typo. Here is the corrected one.

There's no material difference. We still don't know what voltage you're using, what is driving the inputs, or what the output drives.

To make a flip flop, you need to cross couple the transistors and they're usually of the same polarity.

Did you notice that it's easier to view a graphics file?

Dennis, thanks for the input. I don't see what difference the input would be. The input may be 5v, 3.5v, 2.8v...etc... Input driver, ie: +vsw to A for output to line, output to base on a storage bit.

What I was trying to do is to get transistor be latched by means of a latching resistor configuration, then pop it out with a high, to enable it to function as a set/reset type of circuit. So hypothetically, the input would be driven out by the transistor circuit at A, and closed by the transistor circuit at B by means of lo input (ie: .5v) to be reset by a high input (ie: 1.1v).

Well it's obvious that you don't know much about circuit design. It does matter what voltages are used. It does matter what the flip flop is supposed to drive. It does matter what signals will toggle the flip flop.

Here is another way at looking at a SET-RESET flip-flop.

A flip-flop requires positive feedback. Two inverters will create a flip-flop.

Since there is no difference in the SET and RESET functions, you can show symmetry in the circuit diagram.
