Does the new 3.0 kernel work with Useless Firmware 1.6, or just the RetroFW.img? What is RetroFW? Do the ipk installers also work in Useless firmware? I would rather not switch and loose all of those installed emulators.
My experience from yesterday, with 3.0, tested emulators: Megadrive, NES, SNES, MAME, C64, Sinclair, Atari
Useless alone: emulators work, USB does not.
Useless + RetroFW kernel: USB does not work, PicoDrive (megadrive emulator) does not work.
Useless + patch from my previous post: USB works, PicoDrive (megadrive emulator) does not work.
Full RetroFW (first post this thread): USB works, you don't even have to reboot. But there are no emulators, or native games, or apps. You have to install them using IPK files, so far there is only few emulators. But Picodrive works, and the few which there are mostly those I want.
At the moment I don't know how to install emulators from Useless into Retro. Copying the files from emu directory does not work. Also Retro doesn't show external SD card in /mtn but in /media.
As I understand it Useless is not developed anymore, Retro is, but it's still new. It has potential to be better.
Today I'd like to try Useless with NERDS patch (non Retro), and to replace picodrive with IPK from RetroFw. No idea if that's gonna work.
