I'm not a programmer but I'll try.
The V-bit is set when the most significant digit changes.

[imaginary counter]
000 - initial condition
001 - not set
010 - not set
011 - not set
100 - set
101 - not set
110 - not set
111 - not set
000 - set

I was just trying to add another brain to this as no one else tried.
But, you are already getting beyond the programming capacity of this non-programmer's brain.

I think what you are looking for begins on page 149.

You might wanna ask a mod to move this into a programming zone. Us hardware guys lurk in "CPU Processors" and your question is a programming question. You'd get a better response in another zone.
