After loading Gameblabla's firmware on my RS-07, and deciding that taking the RS-07 apart isn't something I want to keep doing, I decided to mount an SD card extension from the inside SD card slot to the back of the case:
They're around ?6 on Amazon, probably cheaper on Aliexpress/etc.
I bought one of those to do the same thing only I havent added it yet as I was thinking of cutting into the plastic and mounting it inside the case and I haven't gotten around to it yet. Doing it this way is so much simpler. I bought mine from Ebay for ?1.63 and it works fine.

Nice, just found a clone of a clone: the Retro Miniature arcade
Available on TomTom for just 30 bucks: https://www.tomtop.com/p-v5526.html
Supporting a whopping 360 FC games:

What's interesting about this is that it's an even smaller version. Here's a video comparing this to the RS-07:

Looks like some of them run that "XX in 1" famicom/nes software, and some have a more RS-97 style software.

The version running the RS-97 style software is called the RS-12.

It looks like the controllers are using mini USB rather than USB for the connectors too:



And a regular Nokia style battery:

I ordered one of the mini minis on Aliexpress but the seller hasn't shipped yet. Has anyone opened one up? Is there a micro sd like its big brother?

The videos show 2 different devices. The first one is from Retrogame, and you can connect 2 of them, and it has an external microSD slot. Funnyplaying has stocked it, I'm probably going to get one soon.

The colored model is a different unit, no external microSD slot, and seems to run only 8-bit games. I like the color better though.

A couple more mods done to my RS-07:

  • Improved the mounting of the external internal SD card slot
  • Replaced the power switch with one that's less easy to accidentally hit
  • 3D printed a cover for the old power switch hole
  • Glued the speaker in place




I mentioned previously about the SD card extension:



It's now mounted with double sided tape, and cable managed better.

The new power switch is just a 20mm panel-mount switch, it's a lot harder to accidentally turn off. I de-soldered the original switch, added two wires with crimp terminals, and then connected them to the new switch.

If you want to 3D print your own cover for the old power switch hole, you can grab it here on Tinkercad.

I messed up ordering mine, I manged to get Micro SD to SD extension cable.. My own fault, couldn't be bothered to set up my new bank card so used ebay   :-[ :-[  ;D ;D lol

Loving the MOD though, they look great... I just gotta find a nice glass screen protector....
