Its a stupid fake, probably is a raspberry inside rs-97 case.

Whait naxeras said, most likely a Rasperry Pi inside. Since the connectors are exposed (display and even the buttons), it's just relatively easy to make it work with any devices with GPIO ports and all. (though i don't know the exact specifics)
The JZ4760(B) SoC has no 3D hardware whatsoever, only a lame 2D accelerator.

Do yourself a favour and don't bother with the native emulators. These work much better:

https://github.com/JackD83/dmenu/raw/master/release/emulator.zip

and Dingux Commander:

https://github.com/JackD83/dmenu/raw/master/release/apps.zip

Also I notice the removable battery is a 18650 2000mAh one



So I went and ordered these:

Hello,

Completely new to this forum and to this system, you have suggested the RS-07 native emulators aren't very good, do I simply have to extract your recommended emulators to an SD card and run them from there using the RS-07's file browser?

Thank you for your work!

They're not my work unfortunately (a user called JackD83) but you are correct about using the file browser. A better thing you could do is pm another user called gameblabla who has done excellent work with another device and also has an experimental custom firmware for the Retro Arcade Mini. He might give you the link if you ask nicely enough!

I recovered a battery life of a laptop and I have to dismount to recover lithium batteries, it works. This is a good solution if you have a laptop battery old.

It appears there is a new firmware at https://jutleys.wixsite.com/retrogamers97-90
Is this the official firmware for this device or a custom one? and if it's custom is it the one gameblabla was working on and posted videos for? I would try it out but im waiting for a new micro SD card to arrive, im not messing with the one in the machine incase nothing works.

This is Gameblabla's early CFW preview... It is very early version but still much better that the stock FW IMHO as the games run much better.

FBA is working really well ;)

Cool thanks, Cant wait to try it and see what else I can play and what runs better. I wonder why they uploaded a very early CFW preview instead of waiting for a proper release? Still not complaining.
