Support for Powerblock?
I'm quite new with Recalbox, but I love it. I purchased a Pimorini Picade Arcade Case and planned to install RetroPie - until I learned about Recalbox.
There is a web site from petRockBlog who sells a fantastic Power Shield which allows to power up and shutdown a Raspberry with a external toggle switch. But there is a small software setup and configuration necessary - which is obviousely not possible with Recalbox since it bases on Buildroot.
Is there any chance to get this Power Shild supported in Recalbox sometimes?
No one in the team owns one. I can't say it woudln't work, nor it would, just it's not on the todo list
I wonder if such a Shild is necessary at all?
Could it be, that Recalbox "protects" its file systems ("/" and "/boot") through "read-only" access?
Or let me ask my question in this manner:
Can I corrupt the Recalbox file system(s) by no proper shutdown or a simple power-off by pulling the power plug?
@RK.aus.S recalbox tries to prevent sd corruption by using a read-only file system, so yes... you can corrupt your sd card by doing that.
You can always remount the partitions as rw if you need to edit them.
Anyway we added several power management options, so there are alternatives to the powerblock
Recalbox filesystem is read only to prevent any possible corruption. I wouldn't bet my wage it's bullet proof, but it's still quote robust so far
