Boards Rules Help Wiki Donate. Jellyfish OP Posts: I just received my RG in the mail today. After flashing RetroFW 1. I'm aware of the ComicBook firmware, but I don't like its interface.
I much prefer the GMenu2X type. By the way, the date Where did you download the firmware? Also, how did you copied to your sd card?
I use etcher balena etcher for windowsalways works flawlessly. I'll try it again with etcher to see if it works that way. Good lead. If that doesn't work, try another sd card as some are prone to not boot. I've encountered that also with my raspberry. Quote from: Jellyfish on September 13,pm. Just booted it up fine with the microSD it shipped with which I should have tried way earlier.
There are no ROMs naughtily preloaded. This would be excellent if not for the fact that I wish to use a larger microSD that was purchased for this system.
You can always create an image from the original sd card and then burn it on a larger one. Afterwards, you need to enlargen the partition with something like minitool partition when using windows or gparted for Linux as it will be a copy of the original. I believe there is something wrong with the original download - try it again and compare the amount of bytes. Or download it from another place. Also White screen for me. The LDK 2. The rest of the firmware works as it should.
I believe there may have been a screen change as i have tested a few firmwares that are stated for this device and they all result in a white screen. The screen on the default firmware is bright and responsive but the rest of the firmware is rubbish.
I did this by making a dummy img file then selecting it, once you confirm the correct sd is selected click read. You can confirm the img is good by writing to another sd of same or larger size. Then you could use a partition tool to shrink the large partition and read again then Zip and upload.
Hope this makes sense. Disregard all previous from me. Thank you for extracting and modding the firmware for me, as I was about ksg 350z silicone gel ask where to temporarily host it for your good people's analysis. I'll try it later today. Update: Works great. Thank you.New customer? Create your account. Lost password? Recover password. Remembered your password? Back to login.
