    It is playable although which CFW do you plan to use it with? While you can use Retroarch with both, performance is usually better if not identical with Atmosphere.

    You need Mupen core and you might try overclocking.
    Not sure overclocking is doable with SXOS.

    Do like other : take the red pill and use Atmo (did it myself).

    Overclocking is doable with SXOS. The retroarch menu for that works well. No need for external sysmodules.

    Most n64 games run fullspeed, but some need a small overclock. I cant notice any differences in performance between sxos and atmos.

    You might prefer PAL ROMs as they target 50fps. If you load NTSC roms, they need 60fps to run fullspeed which is harder to reach.

    I would suggest Switchroot Android or Lakka. Emulators generally perform better and there's a wider variety of them. RetroArch on Linux/Android is much more mature than the native HOS version.
