Odroid Go Advance - Stuck at Welcome Screen

  • Hello my dear friends,

    I just flashed Recalbox 7.1.1 onto an sdcard and put it in my Odroid Go Advance. It booted up, but doesn't react to any buttons I press except the power butten, thap puts it into sleep mode.

    Any ideas?

    @Grimlock42G1 Could you post a photography of your Odroid Go Advance ?

  • Yes, I can. 🙂
    Batocera and Emuelec work fine.

    @Grimlock42G1 oki, it's an OGA2.
    Did you install recalbox 7.1.1 ?
    What is your sd card ? A sandisk one, samsung one, a generic one ?
    Mine is working fine using RCB V7.1.1 and a Sandisk card. I installed it using RPi-imager.
    Did you check the buttons ? Are they well connected ?

  • I flashed RB 7.1.1 to a 128gb sandisk ultra using balenaetcher.
    I also have a 32 gb sandisk with Batocera 29 which is working fine. So I don't think it's a hardware issue.

    @Grimlock42G1 Ok, can you try using RPi-manager, we sometimes get problems with etcher.
    If the pb remains, can you post a support archive please ?
    Using internet, connect to : http://recalbox/help

  • Unfortunately the results are the same when flashing the image via Pi Imager.

  • I found this in the changelog for the next release:

    • Fix Odroid Go Advance controller (v1)

    Might be the problem.

    @Grimlock42G1 So, just be patient and wait for the next-release, it may solve your controller problem. 👍

  • I found the gitlab commit in the beta11 branch. I just needed to ad a few lines to the es_input.cfg in system/.emulationstation/ .
    Now 7.1.1-reloaded works. This might help every other odroid go advance (v1) user. It has to be added before </inputList> at the end of the file.
