Unread postby db9979 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 4:39 pm

Hi,

do i need to flash both if i am already on next Gen Firmware?

1. https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/o ... o-firmware
2. https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases

or does the firmware.bin hold both and it will be enough to flash with firmware.bin on sdcard and hold b?

There are now two (2) different firmwares: device and application.

device firmware = The new ODROID-GO firmware. This firmware is always present. It only needs to be flashed one time. Once it is flashed, the new "firmware update mode" becomes available.

application firmware = Anything that anybody wants to publish for use on ODROID-GO. Changing/reflashing applications is as simple as inserting a SD card with the application and entering "firmware update mode".


The emulators are provided as "application firmware" (firmware.bin). Nothing other than the application (game emulators) is contained in it. Since the ODROID-GO firmware (device firmware) was just released, it will need to be flashed one time. It will only need to be reflashed if the device flash is erased, corrupted, or a new version becomes available.
