Hi,

I wanna start this thread since I have this console and wanna ask if anybody use this or maybe hacked it and wanna share the experiences.

Console isn't new, but currently is offered by one of local retro shops.

I bought the Standard version, since Premium wasn't available. I am really happy with this thing. This plays lot of retro systems like NES, SNES, MD, MS, PC-E, GB, GBC, GBA, GG etc.

I think this is better than Retron5 since it allows to dump cartridges to microSD and play it without cartridge (ROMS are encrypted).

I found some info that it is hackable and it allows to play more systems like PS1, N64 - but all is in Japanese.

So if any of you interested about this hack here is link to GitHUB

LOL encrypted Roms.

Still interesting thread and following for curiosity.
FYI the Retron 5 dumped the roms in a decrypted manner. getting to them though was a different story(pain in the butt)

does it require hooking up the RetroFreak to the PC?

I do not know japanese, but as far as i know IT is handled by sd card with preflashed images from github, there are images for 8gb card and 32gb card.

But IDK if IT is safe or way to reflash stock fw.

But if aby of you have Retron5 there is also hack for it.

    Offer to clean house, wash windows, walk dogs, anything. You gotta have drive in life to get anything. Nothing is just given to you, atleast when you get older.

    Most kids don't want to work nowdays, they want everything handed to them. And to think you're poor just cause you don't own a Switch is ridiculous.

    being poor and healthy is the worst case scenario because you have the longest amount of time to "enjoy" being poor

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
