    On command line try this →

    adb devices
    adb shell mount -o rw,remount,rw /system
    adb push /your/user/all-games.ini /system/atgames/
    adb shell mount -o ro,remount,ro /system
    adb shell ls -al /system/atgames
    adb devices
    adb pull /system/atgames/all-games.ini
    adb shell mount -o rw,remount,rw /system
    adb shell mv /system/atgames/all-games.ini /system/atgames/all-games.bak
    adb shell ln -s /sdcard/Games/all-games.ini /system/atgames/all-games.ini
    adb shell mount -o ro,remount,ro /system

    I also have your same problem in past and this commands works for me but I use Linux.

    Then you need do the start steps to create new all-games.ini and put your games in the folder of /games →
    "adb devices"

    This command starts the adb daemon and verify the flashback is connected


    "adb pull /system/atgames/all-games.ini"

    This command copies the all-games.ini file you will need to modify to your computer.

    "adb shell mount -o rw,remount,rw /system "

    This command is where the risk starts, it tells your flashback to allow modifications to the system folder.

    "adb shell mv /system/atgames/all-games.ini /system/atgames/all-games.bak"

    This command creates a backup of the original all-games.ini to restore if needed later.

    " adb shell ln -s /sdcard/Games/all-games.ini /system/atgames/all-games.ini"

    This command creates a symlink from the original all-games.ini and points it to the NAND Flash for easy access.

    " adb shell mount -o ro,remount,ro /system"

    This command restores the original read only state to the system files.

    Open NAND FLASH folder on the rk3036 device and create the folder "Games" (case is important here as well)

    copy the all-games.ini file from your adb folder to the newly created "Games" folder

    Hi my people!

    Now another year has passed since @Hekel mentioned / announced RetroShield. I wonder, if he has made any progress or had any success with the software.

    Btw, I have somehow bricked my concole and it doesn't save or load saves properly anymore. I can play games though.
    Since I have no backup, can someone please send me the original files and explain, how I can restore the original firmware?
    This would be highly appreciated!!! (Hell, I already spent so much time on it in vain and I'm feeling so desperate right now...)

    Alternatively, I'm readyto install another firmware, like RetroShield if there is anything out there, yet. Does anyone have any information on this?

    And oh yeah, I have the 2017 verion of the console, so there is NO SD Card slot.

    I'm REALLY looking forward to hear from you guys! :-)

    Here is a copy of the original. Try to push this.
    and power shell is ok... if you have problem just type cmd or powershell to swap between shells... most importantly run as administrator.

    all-games.ini
    https://pastebin.com/XpwH4XPH
    Code:
    adb devices
    adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system
    adb push all-games.ini /system/atgames/all-games.ini
    pause
    adb reboot

    Nice you solve the problem in both tutorials (mine and MicroNut99) you repair the path of allgames.ini and create them, the both commands inependent of systems are similar.

    Good.

    I'm using this driver and ADB. See if it works for you.
    This package has also the rkdumper to backup your device, but you will need to use Android Tool to switch it to Loader mode.

    This is likely caused by the firmware you are using. If you are using one of test builds, ping me or MicroNut99 in private.

    Another question..
    Can you remove games so remove all the games that are not Mega Drive/Genesis games..??

    Cant play CD games without a mod.
    SenPai/Generations can do it. You'll have to downlown explusalpha md.emu to play SegaCD and the others for more...
    Read this thread from start, and or skip back a few pages and read the quick breakdown from rrifonas. Much is possible.

    Yes. You can add and remove all gen games. The built in emu has poor compatibility.

    How do you go about backing up the nand on the Flashback,you need Clockworkmod recovery to copy the whole nand don't you cos its Android and this don't have it so you can only copy parts of the system you are going to change and push it to your PC using adb..?
