I ran through some testing

*1) Auto Expand -> First boot shuts down requiring hard power reset, then boots as anticipated. Expand does work however.
*2) Controllers do not appear to work in Setup Menu
*3) Odroid Config missing manual expand option
*9) BGM folder not accessible via Samba
*11) casetheme folder not accessible via Samba (need to remove, for OGST case with XU4)
*12) esthemes folder not accessible via Samba
*14) splashscreens folder not accessible via Samba
*16) Even though Launching Videos show as enabled they are not working
*22) FB/Console Blanking needs to be fixed
*32) N64 -> lr-mupen64plus-nx/Conkers & Golden Eye does not work...kicks back to ES (issue noted in Eric's initial list)
*36) NEC PC-88 -> quasi 88 not working, screen squished, caused hard lockup (could not capture log)

Tested and verified just over 50 systems working.

Jaguar as expected has choppy audio and sluggish video

Verified Gamesir G3s and Hori PS4 mini controllers working as anticipated.

We have not attempted PPSSPP as of yet since we noticed another thread on it failing. Have not attempted DraStic for NDS nor our dev's build for Saturn.

Pretty solid start we feel for being around 24 hours of having the gear.

Should have some video up in the next day or so for our Alpha build. Great progress in the first week. We have been successful in compiling a few emulators that we are not currently able to with our XU4 build.

Will I be able to watch youtube too?
And use chromium?
I was googling and it looks like Retropie can do chromium. I don't need a full desktop but it would be great to be able to get on the web.
I have an XU4.

Leaning hard towards yes on this board since having some x11 support solved some of the emulator issues I had with SDL1.2 . So might as well use it all.

Sorry for the delay. Time does fly and we released our latest build for the XU4 the beginning of March. We recorded close to two hours of video this evening we will be posting up in the next day or so, but yes.... 64 bit has had some challenges due to certain cores still only being 32 bit or else older SDL.

Yes, the upstream kernel really made performance work really well with a little OC on the boot.ini

The upstream kernel does have a reboot issue and need help finding a solution, whether its a workaround of sorts. The other issue is Kodi only works on 1080p or above but we run at 720p for best performance.

My hopes that they can overcome the res issues with Kodi and Plex. I would really like to test 4k performance with Plex.
