Using the data set from T-60 to T+243 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 240419A (trigger #1222955)
(Siegel, et al., GCN Circ. 36169).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 94.505, -44.964 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  06h 18m 01.3s
   Dec(J2000) = -44d 57' 50.2"
with an uncertainty of 3.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 89%.
 
The mask-weighted light curve shows two dim pulses at T0-7 s and T0+0 s,
respectively.
The T90 (15-350 keV) is 3.00 +- 1.41 sec (estimated error including systematics).
 
The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.43 to T+2.57 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.71 +- 0.38.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 8.4 +- 2.1 x 10^-08 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.57 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.6 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
level.
