Bad news everyone, I was so excited to try swapping the screen out with my RS-97 v2.0 screen and it was a completely different ribbon cable (smaller, different pin layout), the connector on the motherboard was moved, the pin layout for the old connector still exists on the pcb...I am pretty bummed out at this point, does anyone know if the ribbon connector is the same for all version screens on the OG RS-97?

PS. The screen on the plus is as awful as everyone says....real shame because they did so much right.

You can't just swap the screen using the existing connector. You must solder all the components which are missing on the circuit board of the rs-97 plus. That includes resistors, capacitors, a 51-pin connector for the "new" screen, and some more components.

So is basically every one saying stay away from the Plus since it does not look like custom firmware will be made for it?

If you haven't already purchased one, then yeah. Avoid.

At least until the next version of it is out. Word is they're going back to the same screen as the 3.0 board. Which I assume means we?re back to 480 lines. Which I'm totally okay with now that we have IPU support.

Not sure if people know about this but it seems cheap if you do want one:

I am assuming it is not selling as well due to the poor compatibility with current CFW

Also they have the white RS-97 here too:

There's a reason why people don't buy it and it's because the screen has terrible tearing and is unable to go over 30 FPS
due to how it is interfaced.
As a result, Tony boycotted it (even though he could support, he's just wants to force them to release a decent device) and the CFW does not support it.
We could put something together using the stock kernel but it won't have triple buffering and all, not to mention no USB.
So yeah, it is not worth the 50$ believe me.

That white RS-97 is fine though but there's no guarantee they will give you this one and not the RS-97 Plus.

Ordered the white one, got a v 3.0 RS-97 white.

All seems good, games are in English, time to get flashing!

Looks like someone made a CFW for this device after all.

Yes it has a CFW, jutley released a prelimineary image of it together with some build (including PCSX4ALL) i've sent to him.
But you won't get USB working, you won't have triple buffering & vsync (hardware issues) and so on...
Hence why effort to improve on it has been given up.

It's not RetroFW, it's based upon the older Useless firmware. Tony has refused to support the Plus LCD screen.
