I was hoping someone could give an update on the Pine64 boards? Mrfixit released a version a few weeks ago that is upgraded to Dragonblaze and seems to work well on the Rockpro64. I think I read somewhere that he submitted the code to be merged into the recalbox repo late last year so that when new builds are released they will be available on the recalbox web site with the other boards? Thanks for all of the hard work that has gone into this!

Update on Merging the Pine64 Boards?
Memory cards larger than 32gb on Rockpro64
I have a Rockpro64 and was trying to load Recalbox onto a 128gb Samsung SD card. It was very unreliable, sometimes it would boot, sometimes it wouldn't. It didn't save settings and when it was working it was sluggish (not just on the initial boot where as I understand it the partition is being resized). I used the SD formatting software and guiformat.exe before writing the image to make it FAT32.
I also tried a 32gb Sandisk card and it works much better but doesn't give me the space I was hoping for. I am wondering if the problem is the 128gb doesn't work well with the Rockpro64 or if it was the fact that it was a Samsung card. Has anyone used a larger card in the Rockpro64 successfully? I'm wondering if I should buy a Sandisk 128gb card (or another brand if anyone has one working) or if that is a waste of money. Thank you.
Help getting controller set up/installing xpadneo
I have a Rockpro64 and am trying to pair two Xbox One controllers over bluetooth. I know this isn't officially supported on Recalbox yet but I've been reading a lot, trying different settings, etc. and so far I have gotten the system to see the controller but it won't pair. I would like to try using xpadneo (https://atar-axis.github.io/xpadneo/) but I can't get it installed because of missing software on the Recalbox distro. Even "sudo" isn't recognized. Per the instructions, here are the commands I need to run (not sure which Distro to pay attention to):
On Arch and Arch-based distros (like Antergos), try
sudo pacman -S dkms linux-headers bluez bluez-utils
On Debian based systems (like Ubuntu) you can install those packages by running
sudo apt-get install dkms linux-headers-
On Fedora, it is
sudo dnf install dkms bluez bluez-tools kernel-devel-
On OSMC you will have to run the following commands
sudo apt-get install dkms rbp2-headers-
sudo ln -s "/usr/src/rbp2-headers-
uname -r" "/lib/modules/
uname -r/build" (as a workaround)
On Raspbian, it is
sudo apt-get install dkms raspberrypi-kernel-headers
If you recently updated your firmware using rpi-update the above package may not yet include the header files for your kernel. Please follow the steps described here in this case.
- Download the Repository to your local machine git clone https://github.com/atar-axis/xpadneo.git
- cd xpadneo
- Run ./install.sh
Can someone help me with this? I would really like to get this controller working. Thank you!
RE: Hardware Advice
Thanks everyone for the responses. The list of board compatibility with the different emulators is very helpful.
Does anyone know what the driver problem is with the H2? I've searched and can't find anything on it. I'm a little puzzled because people have been able to install Ubuntu on it with no problems and the company's web site shows them using the Dolphin emulator on Ubuntu and everything appears to be working fine. Thanks
I am hoping I can get some advice on the best hardware to use. I am hoping to keep it $100-150 but will go as high as $300 if necessary. At a minimum I want to be able to play N64 and PSX smoothly so the Raspberry Pi is out. I would also like to be able to play Dreamcast, Gamecube and PS2 games. Wii games would be great.
I was looking at the Rockpro64 since there is a beta release currently out for Recalbox. I am having a hard time comparing the performance of the ARM chips to x86. I've read that it plays the N64 games well but how will the more demanding systems perform?
The site for the Odroid H2 says that it can play the Wii games but it is out of stock unless you want to get it off of eBay. It also seems like it might have driver issues since it is new.
I also looked at the NUC6CAYH (https://www.amazon.com/INTEL-NUC-Kit-Component-BOXNUC6CAYH/dp/B01MSZTD8N/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=intel+nuc&qid=1550280825&s=electronics&sr=1-5). Would this be a good option? How do you think this compares to the Rockpro64?
Any help would really be appreciated! Thanks in advance
