    OK, so if I use the 128GB Img, would I be able to Extend the Partition after, so it uses the full 256GB?

    It flashed. It only refuses to flash if I try to flash more than one package at a time.

    I think the spontaneous shutdowns were caused by my battery pack and pc. Not gapps

    Hope someone uploads on gdrive. Torrent is a no go.

    If anyone gets an "error 64" on installing opengapps, go to the main twrp menu, go to Mount and mount /system. That's how I fixed that error

    Been playing with this for a while now and I've made little progress. While I managed to get gapps installed (had to flash sheildifier first before gapps would install properly) I get it booted but I'm stuck on an endless setup. I make it through it all, get to a space wallpaper just to be kicked back to the start of the setup in an endless cycle. Every couple of seconds I get an app crash prompt (usually setup has crashed) I'm attempting to reflash the sd now. My main priority is to test drastic and dolphin, once I'm able to play with them I'll report back.

    It's obvious this is very WIP, but from what little I've experienced it's pretty cool and I'm excited to see how well it runs and how it develops.

    Anyone try the Android port of KOTOR using this? I wonder if you can use joycons with it?

    Interesting, but why Lineage over pure AOSP or the stock Shield ROM? Seems like unnecessary extra work. That said, I haven't followed this project all that much.

    Drastic works like a dream for those wondering

    What about RetroArch/Reicast (or whatever they are calling the DC Emu)?

    Since the switch is pretty much a tablet this makes total sense i guess.

    I have no doubt older systems like n64, ps1, SNES, and stuff will run perfectly so I'm not rushed to test them. I'm sure reicast will run well too but I will test it out next just to compare it to lakka

    I'm averaging 20-30fps on windwaker with dolphin after tweaking around the settings. Also the joystick doesn't seem to work for me on dolphin even when configuring it.

    I also noticed all fullscreen apps leaving a black border on the bottom and right sides of the screen (roughly .25" and 0.125" respectively)

    Excelent, I'm installing this on night just to test Drastic and Cytus 2, my current phone has a very bad and unprecise digitizer, so it should work perfectly with the switch digitizer.

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    Yeah! That's great! Now there's a reason to get a Switch! Not for all that Nintendo crap, but for this! :D

    I have no leftover micro sd. I hope there is a possibilty to flash it onto my switch 256gb micro sd and let the leftover use for atmosphere. I wonder if you could profit from a fast micro sd card. I might buy a fast 32gb one.

    So, pardon the dumb question, but what's the ban risk with this? Is there any? My assumption is no since it's not built to communicate with Nintendo's servers at all in the first place but I want to be sure.
