I'm Fab2Ris, the Social Media Manager of the free and open source project "RECALBOX", the Retrogaming OS for Raspberry Pi, Odroid, PC... dedicated to the preservation and accessibility of our childhood game-video heritage, born in 2015.
At the same time, let me to introduce you a part of the Recalbox team present on this forum:

ian & gugue_u, devs too
We've released this Friday a Recalbox version for two handheld consoles: the ODROID-GO Advance and the brand new ODROID-GO Super from HardKernel!
Only a few days after we received our boards in France, our volunteers have ported Recalbox to the ODROID-GO Advance and Super, two particularly interesting compact consoles.
A simple port?!
The Recalbox team knows of no such thing...
This is much more than just a simple port, mind you.
The Recalbox team has done lots of work to take advantage of the capabilities that the Super provides:
- General system optimization
- Volume and brightness control via hardware buttons
- Headphone jack management with automated auto output switching
- Power consumption optimization, for longer battery life
- Battery charge level management, with a display in the menu
- NEW: SLEEP MODE! Whether you’re in a menu or in the middle of a game, a simple press of the power button will put your system into a power saving mode. Another press will turn the system back on, letting you pick up where you left off, even after several days… just like the Nintendo Switch!
- NEW: STARTUP WIZARD + MULTILINGUAL TUTORIAL WIZARD, for even more convenience, and an unparalleled user experience!
Much more than a new port, Recalbox on Odroid Gos surpasses everything that has been done so far in terms of ergonomics and user experience in the world of retrogaming, becoming a new quality standard.
We are very proud and happy to present these products to you, and we look forward to reading your feedback on your user experience, ergonomics of Recalbox, integration of the menus/shortcut keys, startup wizard during installation... ah yes, because that too is new!
