NEW FIRMWARE FOR RETROSTONE 2 PLS!
#1
Hi to the Mighty RetrOrangePi Developers,

It been over a year now, I like to know if there is any new firmware for Retrostone 2. I recalled the last update was Version 4.3 back in Feb 2020. Im having issue with my retrostone 2 as I update the retropie/ retroarch somehow the console do not start any roms on every emulators and the errors on retroarch. I have to reformat my micro SD card and install a fresh V4.3 in order to get it to work again. But I'm afraid to update retropie/ retroarch. I hope RetrOrangePi Developers able to fix or create a new firmware.

Thank you

MeToo...
@alexkidd seems to be the only one who is developing.
But yes, its realy time for a recent FW update. If there will be no FW update, then this is unfortunately further electrical waste...
So please alexkidd, give us an update and a timeline or say we can forget about this project.

RS2 should get a partial update (retroarch,cores etc) and fixes, but not a complete firmware as it seems to perform worse with latest kernels (when moving to MESA GPU libraries)

Thank you alexkid for all the development work on the orangepi boards. I hope that new retro projects will emerge. I am also waiting for the update, because I am not capable to contribute to the project. how can we help otherwise?

Thanks for your response, so when will the Partial update be available? Do you know what the reason the RS2 can’t run the roms after update the retropie/ retroarch? Is it possible to partial update retroarch to the latest firmware? Thanks again for your hard work! We all do appreciate it!  Smile
