Flashing the SD Card without having to take the device apart?

Post by trantornator » Mon 30 Jul 2018 22:37

Hi everyone,

I've been running my device for quite a while now without much of a problem using retropie, but I would really like to switch over to Recalbox, given the better resolution control options, overclocking, etc. I also don't want to wrestle with the damn buttons again putting it back together. So, does anyone know a way I can flash the SD card without cracking open the case again?

Kind regards,

Just take it apart, it's not that much of a pain. :roll:
Or just buy another one, heh!

Follow this guys mod!!
For a few £££’s this is well worth doing. I managed to get a shorter 2nd cable (white one) didn’t need to cut and re-solder the socket. . Both for £15 delivered from a German electronics online retailer.
