Re: Broken Retrostone2 arrived

Have you tried make sure the SD is cleaned with diskpart tool? In case there are some partition issue. If you boot while connected to HDMI can you see boot code on HDMI? If yes, but nothing appears on the screen, then it's likely a defect of the screen. In which case you need to contact us by ticket...

Re: General questions

Retrorangepi is a port of Retropie for Allwinner SoC. Whereas Retropie only runs on Raspberry pi (I think at least). Then Retrorangepi developper made all sort of changes to optimize the experience on allwinner SoC. As some emulator may not run as well depending on the SoC. Yes you can hand-solder t...

Re: Retrostone 2 Initial Reaction

Glad you enjoy it ! :) About the power-on when cable is connected, I know it's annoying. It's default behaviour of the chip. I actually been looking for a solution to remove this behaviour. The AXP209 PMU (power management unit) datasheet say it should be possible. But we have not found how yet... A...

Re: LED above screen

That's light that comes from the LCD. I think the light actually comes from where the LCD ribbon attach to the LCD shell. And it's green because the LCD ribbon is green. If you want to remove this light you'll need to open and add some opaque tape. I don't actually have a working blue unit at hand t...

Re: Powering on & Sleep

Please don't use the sleep function for now. It's default setting of Retrorangepi, but we have not checked how it behaves with RetroStone2 yet. So best is to just use the shutdown. I think when you sleep the unit, then you actually hard-shutdown the unit when you try to power it back up (hardshutdow...

Re: Background noise speaker

I have not noticed this issue on my side yet. I ha It may indeed be interferences. In which case adding a shielding layer could solve the issue. I just tried on the units I have, and can hear static sound from the speaker only when sticking the speaker directly to my hear. Then I can hear a very lig...

Re: Questions before buying

Regarding GPiCase and Odroid, note that those are unassembled kits. So they save cost on assembly and quality test. Initially when I launched Raspiboy it was a 49-59€ so similar to them. But after you add lot of small features the manufacturing cost adds slowly but surely :) Regarding GPiCase I don'...

Re: Activate WLAN

Currently the wifi/bt chip is disabled by default because it's inducing some lag for an unknown reason. We'll activate it back when root issue will be identified.
