Thank you very much!
When you try the file, please share the result.
Does not work either.
Looking at dmesg, it seems that the module is working but it misses something else:

mariovirgili would you like the v11 dtb file too? I'm pretty sure these files, both I've sent, and this file also, are all unmodified from the SD image file's source.

Instead of sending the whole dtb file, can you post its md5?

I gave the output an .md5 extension because .txt just seemed not to be truly fitting, for the content of the file.

It’s different.
Are you using the 5.26 stable or the 5.27 beta?

Ah ok. Yeah, you’re right. The 5.27 beta.
I tested it too with no success some weeks ago.
I’ll try it again. Thanks

I'd love to hear of your results, but the first batocera I installed and tested on my OGA BE was the beta of 5.26 and everything worked, even wifi , but not sound, without manual configuration / etc , then I updated to 5.27's first beta , and even sound started working fine, then I fiddled with the auto update settings, and changed it from beta to stable, and when 5.26 stable came out, wifi and everything else was working, but I wanted to see where the beta was going with all the features and stuff, so I changed it back to beta, and there was an update to the earlier 5.27 beta , and that was even better than the previous versions I ran, I've never had problems with wifi on mine, and I'm concerned that your issues might be hardware , and not software …. But, why more than one user with the same problem?

I have another memory card with Emuelec. WiFi works well there.
Which means the problem is not hardware.

I tried another distro and the WiFi worked fine. So it’s not definitely a hardware fault, but a software matter.

A weird one.

Considering all you've tried, assuming your games , roms , folders / etc, and BIOSes are all backed up somewhere, try downloading the SD image from here:

https://batocera.org/upgrades/odroidgoa ... 709.img.gz

and then flashing with either win32diskimager or balena etcher, and go to the usb icon in the windows system tray and safely disconnect the SD card from your system... (or if you're running Linux, you know how to do all that)
and put that SD card in the OGA BE , and see if wifi works... (without altering files / sending games / etc to the card)

Yeah, I know this is the next step to be done, but... I have to backup 210gb of ROMs and data and I’ve run out of hd space! :)

This is why I’m trying to fix this thing from "inside". ;)

Re: batocera.linux

are you using 5.26 stable?
if yes, try getting a USB network adaptor --- some kind of wifi or wired ethernet adapter...?
try to get internet with it, go to the update settings, (I think it's like "menu / start button" > "download and updates" and tell it to go to beta, and then , have it download the update, if it doesn't right away, do a full shut down, and power it on again, and check if it is downloading the update, and then tell it to update in that same menu, should just work, but … with the issues you've described , nothing is for sure, it's entirely possible that there's issues I haven't thought of , issues that shouldn't exist, or who knows what... but I wonder if the SD card you've been using for the Batocera distro has been kinda corrupted or possibly damaged... but then 2 people in the same post... IDK... something must be wrong.

I’m already using a WiFi dongle and I have already upgraded to beta some weeks ago. With no result. I tried to update via es interface and even manually, copying the files in the boot dir. But the internal Wi-Fi still did not work, so I installed the stable 5.26 again. I did a fschk, no errors. The card is working flawlessly.

I think the only last thing I can do is to backup and rewrite from scratch.
Thanks for your thoughts and help!

as a side note, I could use DD to make a backup file of only the system partition (OS) and not the roms / etc, and then compress it to RAR or zip and share it on a site and give you the link here, and then send you a command with the file, probably put it in the SHARE/music folder or something in the SD , instead of SHARE/ROMS or whatever... and yeah you should be able to boot up to the batocera SD image you have, use a DD command that I give , and you should be able to *REPLACE* your OS partition with mine, and possibly resolve your problems. assuming the hardware isn't at fault.

so, first, download this file from the link I'm providing here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0lc0phsbk00o6iy/mmc1.rar?dl=0

then, using the network adaptor you have plugged into a usb port, send the file to (Assuming you're on windows) \\YOUR OGA's IP ADDRESS\SHARE\music\ and then when that's done, use putty (the SSH program) to send this command to batocera:
(default login USER is root
password is linux)
then after logging in, type the following into the BASH prompt:
dd if=/media/SHARE/music/mmc1.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1
then type "exit" after it's run and returns to the prompt. after it's done, go to the OGA and shutdown. after a few seconds of letting it shutdown properly, turn it on again, (if it didn't crash after the DD command) and it should be good.

check my last comment, I changed it to include instructions and a link -- if you've never used a rar file before, you should be able to get WinRAR from a google search and install it without too much difficulty.
actually it seems mediafire has a 1GB size limit or transfer limit, for free.

Thanks!!
I believe I found a way to share a 1.8GB file, check the link above , in my post right before your post saying thanks. IF you need a link to WinRAR, I'll share it here:

Thanks @umisguy! I have no problems with winrar, 7zip or similar. But unfortunately I’m on vacation now and I cannot try it.
I will do it ASAP.

Thanks again

I have another memory card with Emuelec. WiFi works well there.
Which means the problem is not hardware.
Did you get a chance to attempt my fix? --- I can't guarantee for sure the fix works, but it works on my end and the command, worst it does is clone my configuration of Batocera onto your OGA-BE.

Just have to look through https://github.com/batocera-linux/batoc ... its/master and https://github.com/batocera-linux/batoc ... its/master to spot anything major and/or 'oga/ogo2/odroidgo2'-specific



[EDIT: 'scummvm' has been added to the batocera-cores listing between last beta (July 9th) and this one (August 2nd), but doesn't seem like it's useable yet since there's no entry for it in any of the settings menus/etc]

I've had ability to play games on scummvm on batocera since I think 5.26 beta

Oh weird, I guess ES doesn't even show -options- for systems you don't have ROMs/content set up for. Looks like it works fine!

...still though, "scummvm" wasn't in the previous beta's listing when you do 'batocera-cores' in the terminal, which is why I first thought it was a new addition :shock:

To be clear, and not make you think it didn't work on 5.25 beta / whatever --- I had only gotten my Odroid Go Advance Black Edition built (completed) after the release of Batocera 5.26 beta

Tried it. Does not work. I even tried 5.27 latest beta and it worked, at least on a new sd card.

Then, I decided to overwrite the 5.26 stable files with the latest 5.27 beta and... it screwed up everything. So I copied back again the 5.26 stable files but the buttons config in ES is now messed up.. :((

The select button is now assigned to F3, while the start button is not assigned at all.

How can I cope with it?

From what I read, if the latest beta works on a new SD card, that sounds like maybe the problem is data corruption (hardware level) on the SD card? (this is possible even on newly purchased cards, if they are of lower quality)
I wish I knew how to help better, but, I could look for my control settings and share that, but IDK where they are in batocera, "right now" --- but I'm currently on the newest beta. I'm thinking there's a good chance that your sd card may have some problems , not just "settings / missing files" --- but possibly a bad copy or a bad card. Not 100% sure, but a lot of that kind of symptom "works fine on another card" are usually because of bad or damaged SD card.

I know you said you don't have space to do a backup of the ROMs and stuff, so , maybe it's a good idea to buy another SD card / usb flash drive / etc and use it to back up your ROMs and other files, because I'm willing to give an educated guess that if you don't back up your ROMs soon, they might get lost forever. (from that SD card)

OK so, I've been working on this from yesterday afternoon and most of today, off and on, but I haven't been able, after much research, to figure out what I'm doing wrong, but when I put Apple 2 game disk images in the apple 2 folder, I'm getting the boot beep and a pitch black screen. Is there some BIOS missing? (couldn't find evidence of that being the case) --- all I could find was configuration errors in retropie for the raspberry pi, and it was about the games exiting on start --- my case is different, I hear the boot beep , and then blackness, nothing happens audibly or visibly until I hit the left most and right most of the bottom buttons (which is pressed to exit back to the Batocera ES interface. ) and it seems as though it's emulating fine other than my not being able to see any apple 2 games / software running onscreen...
(I am running the latest august 5.27 beta of Batocera)

Apple2 does not need any bios file.
I had the same problems in running apple2 dsk files.
From my reasearch, it tries to initialize a higher resolution screen and fails, returning to Es.

Actually, that is the best guess for me too. It’s a Samsung MB-MC256GA EVO Plus ordered from Amazon A year ago and used in a lot of retro computing experiment. Maybe it reached its end of life cycle.
I bought a new hard drive and started a complete backup, then I will restart from scratch using a new card.

In the meanwhile, could you please send me your es_input.cfg file? Is located in /userdata/system/configs directory, just to experiment more...

Thanks in advance.

on my OGA, running Batocera, it makes the boot up beep sound, and doesn't return to ES, it only returns to ES if I press the button combo of I and VI , then it takes me to the ES User interface.

So, have the files I shared for you done the job? do they work now? obviously the wifi still isn't working (with that sd card) , but maybe I've resolved the controller config? or not?

I'm sorry, Mariovirgili, I'm just a highly curious natured person with a nearly aching urge to know whether or not what I've done was correct / needed / beneficial / solved the problem / etc --- in almost all I do. When I nag about answers, it's not because I want to annoy you but rather because I want to no longer worry whether or not something has resolved an issue or whatever.
and so far I've yet to figure out what's wrong with my Apple 2 emulator settings / etc on my OGA running batocera. I've done a good deal of research outside batocera/ inside batocera, online / etc , but I know information about one program inside of one OS distro possibly on an issue specific to one hardware model --- often ends up being more rare, but I still hope that I'll someday find a solution, and if I do, I'm sure I'll share it somewhere. Unless it's just a build bug , which I'd have to wait for a dev to fix it, but idk where to report THAT...

Ok, just a quick recap:
- the old SD works and if I write an image from zero using dev 5.27 the wifi will work flawlessly;
- if I use your boot files the system won't display nothing, so it's better not to mix files;
- if I use my 5.26 stable SHARE partition with a 5.27 BATOCERA (boot) partition, then the system will work, the controller config is fine, but the wifi don't;
- the best thing to do would be writing an image from zero and copying the roms, but I give up doing so due to the looong time needed to copy 250 Gb back.

So, now I'm using a mixed sd card, with 5.27 boot files and 5.26 config/system files, with no onboard wifi.

I'm sorry I can't help you with the apple2 bug, though.

I'm also testing the retro roller 3.0 RC image on a new SD. It supports onboard wifi and sleep mode, other than a few tweaks such as blue light and a light overclock, but in my opinion the ease of use of batocera is still unbeatable and after a while (I think due to a massive ftp transfer) the internal wifi stopped working....
For now I'm focusing on its naomi compatibility, and it displays a better and crisper image while I don't recognize any substantial performance increase.

Thanks again for your support and efforts.

should I delete the file share of the boot partition from my OGA which has had the link shared here? (if it won't help people, I don't think it should be shared, because it might lead to future troubles...? )

After further testing, I found out that RetroRoller is superior.
Installing a new kernel, I can overclock to 1,5ghz, retroarch is more compatible, due to two different versions, the onboard wifi is now stable, I can achieve additional 10 fps on naomi and dreamcast games. Saturn games are supported out of the box, updates are instantly from dedicated repo. I decided to keep Batocera for simple emulation (snes, gba and so on), while I will use the RetroRoller for Dreamcast, N64, Saturn, Naomi and Atomiswave.

@ Overclock: I've done some research on that topic before going with batocera (still testing kinda) --- Everything I've read on the topic of that overclock via kernel, from the Odroid people and some other people had said , more or less, that they tested the kernel mods done to make it "overclock" --- it tells the OS / etc to set the top speed it runs at 1.5Ghz instead of basically 1.3, the thing is, without changing voltage shifts, actual CPU settings and whatnot , the people who know more than me have all said that they didn't change the CPU top speed at all in any area than "on screen" --- it more or less fails to increase the total CPU performance at all , and doesn't change the heat levels of the CPU at all, from stock performance. I may be misquoting / reading text wrong, but --- it just seems to not do what it promises, not because the devs for that build lying, but maybe that they didn't do enough to cause a major noticeable change.
(again I might be wrong)
@ more emulators and greater support / stability : that's probably because Batocera is a build based on top of the RecalBox OS --- which is intentionally a stripped down version of Linux with very minimalized support for "extra program code" --- you have to develop your own libraries and code for every program you wish to add to batocera , and thus cannot support different versions of emulators / software , or add ones you want support for, and there's no implemented package manager, in the classic sense (they added Pacman, but the entire distro library includes mostly just the emulators and roms built into batocera / roms you can download from them for free due to being freeware roms --- etc ,) basically meaning that in order to add anything to Batocera , you'd have to build your own build environment either from scratch inside batocera , or build batocera from another computer.
All that said: I love the interface and simplicity of Batocera , but find certain limitations to be frustrating. Do I love what I've experienced on Batocera? yes, but I've also felt let down by some things. I'm if anything …. actually only using it until they provide EVERYTHING I want out of this machine, or until RR is more "stable" --- as to the "wifi being stable" --- I've never had any issues with wifi on batocera, but was RR buggy with the onboard wifi in the past? I'll never ask you to stay with one choice or another, I'm just sharing my insight on the topic.

I still be using both for some times, I got another 256gb SD just for this scope.
The WiFi gave me some problems two days ago on RR, but since then no problems at all.
One thing rr is lacking is the sound on EmulationStation, just as the latest dev of batocera build.
Batocera has zip, 7zr and other programs that RR misses.
Batocera’ s N64 emu has .zip support, while RR do not.
There are pros and cons for each of them, but I love the better compatibility of RR and the better performance of flycast.

Thanks as always for your extremely detailed thoughts about the two images.

Uhmmm.. am I scrambling recent memories?
I’m fast switching from kali to mint to batocera in these days... So it could be. So no apt-get on batocera at all?
I trust you. I cannot verify now. I will fix the above post.

my latest research on batocera and the concept of installing software / etc --- they implemented the Pacman package manager, but only have a handful of packages, most of them by the way, are basically just a few "addon" modifications (support for a different LCD screen? --- etc) and some open source / freeware game ROMs, If I told Pacman to apply sources for that package manager's sources for something with the same CPU, the code wouldn't have any built in support for any OGA specific hardware... (with any luck, some of that code would never need any support for anything other than a maximum RAM usage of about 800MB , the RK3326 CPU , or some support for the LCD panel's resolution and possible rotation --- ? --- it might work … but I'm a bit worried about "forcing" support with very little programming experience in most languages ,(a bit of programming experience in python, some C++ / C with microcontrollers like Arduino, and BASIC / C++ etc from some programs I've written at home over the years, at best I might be a hobby coder, but not someone who could make alterations to someone else's emulator code / etc --- )

hello everyone, there is a new beta

https://batocera.org/upgrades/odroidgoa/beta/last/
on all disk images I provide the apple 2 emulator (read into it and it's apparently LinApple) --- the system boot beep occurs , and the screen is pitch black, nothing onscreen, and no buttons do anything unless / until I press the button combo (I and VI) to quit the emulator back to the main UI , and that works fine. IS there something ( a setting I've configured wrong / haven't configured ? or something like that?) I have done wrong, or is there a missing step? or is it just a bad build of the Apple 2 emulator? or what's going on? I don't know what to do, but it seems to just not work. (at least in a way that can be "usable" )
