Recalbox 6.1 image won't boot from EMMC on Odroid XU4
After upgrading to 6.1 from 6.0 through the GUI my system would not boot. No stalled video, no text, just blank screen for multiple hours. I decided to do a clean install instead and flashed the new image to my EMMC memory. Much to my surprise the same result. I checked my downloaded image against the hash and it was good, so I reflashed just to be sure. Still no joy. I reflashed an old 4.xx image to be sure my EMMC wasn't somehow corrupted during the process and everything went fine. Then just out of curiosity I flashed a micro sd card with the exact same 6.1 image that was not working on my EMMC. It hung on the spash video but I was able to SSH into the system and all appears well after disabling the splash video.
I will continue to troubleshoot to the best of my ability here, but any insight would be appreciated. I prefer to use the EMMC if possible.

I also have this problem. For the time being, I have switched back to retropie...
It s a known bug.
Is there somewhere to download the 6.0 image. 6.1 has been posing too many challenges and my daughter needs to get her gaming fix.

I too am having the same problem. Black screen on boot and it's not getting an IP so I can ssh to either.
I still had the older version on my computer. Just used it yesterday.
Here is download link for you
Thank you thedarklord369. I have 6.0 back up and running. I also would like to thank all of the devs here for bringing us a wonderful piece of software. Although this update didn't go smoothly for me I appreciate your efforts in continuing to develop recalbox, and look forward to the next release. (Although I will be more diligent about saving install files from my working setup in the future.)
