2)Remove all partitions of SD card and format it with FAT32 etc. (I used Windows Disk Management)
3)Download win32diskimager and install it. https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/<>
4)Execute win32diskimager, select SD driver, load the .IMG file and press "Write" button to proceed.
5)Once the image is burned, insert the SD into New Bittboy and turn it on. If it boots it is a success.
6)You can expand you main drive to reclaim the full space use partition magic or similar app.

How to Duel Boot Bittboy from stock firmware to CFW

1) pop out sd card power on wait 2 seconds and then insert card it will boot stock rom.
2)To boot CFW insert sd card and just power on it will boot cfw,



How to tell between V1 & V2 Bittboy?

Well you will probably know by now there are 2 revisions of the bittboy V1 & V2 the only difference being is V2 is more user friendly installing the CFW. The way to tell externally is if you press the start & select buttons if they are soft its V1 if they have a clicky feel to them then its V2. If you want to dig a little deeper and make sure remove the 6 screws and on the top right where the sd card is situated you will see the words V2.0 or on v1.0 there is no marking on the board.

The difference between V1 & V2 the new version of Bittboy 

1. Changed the screen 
2. Changed the button color for (Asian markets only)
3. Changed the button scan code sequence 
4. Changed 4bit. Can directly install cfw 
5. Can dual boot system.   

Internal Improvements 

1.CPU is now consistent 
2. The battery is consistent 
3. No lr

@gameblabla I was looking at the tools you put up for porting to this. I assume this requires a Linux environment? I would love to port a few things over to this, though I admit that I am not much good at programming. If a Linux setup is all I need, I can certainly set up a spare laptop at my shop. I assume things like ReGBA, PocketSNES, and Cave Story could be ported?

I have not tested V3 yet but has the problem of plugging in ear-phones but still have sound coming from the internal speaker fixed in this version.

Also on stock firmware i only get sound from one ear (left) when plugging in ear-phones also happens on v2 cfw, is this normal for this device or has mine got a ear-phone socket problem (ear-phones work fine on other devices)?
Lots of Handhelds but my favourite is still my GCW Zero, But the Retro Game 300 is 2nd Best.

Yeah just got around to testing V3 and Ear-phones problem is fixed, but for some reason cannonball does not work now and oswan emulator is missing?

Update: Fixed Cannonball by changing overclock setting from 600 to 702, it now runs and plays.

Fixed missing oswan emulator by mounting a v2 img and just copied oswan folder over to the v3 sd-card then added a link in gmenu2x.

I absolute cannot get this new firmware to work.

I can confirm I have the v2 "new" Bittboy. I have used multiple SD cards, multiple programs to wipe/format said cards and multiple programs to write the image onto the card.

All I get is a black screen.

None of the tutorial videos are accurate, I do not get the same folder structure they show.

Am I doing something wrong here? I've already tried the latest firmware listed (V3.1_Beta_20190314), still nothing.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Also make sure you wipe your card like this first

How to wipe your sd card completely all partitions ready for bittboy firmware flashing.

Start (diskpart) from windows start menu by typing it in start search bar menu
Then type the below commands in the terminal window.


list disk (this will list all your drives on your computer)
select disk  (what ever number is your sd card please type it after select disk be careful here)
clean (When you type clean it will clear all partitions)
create partition primary (This command will create a new partition)
exit (type exit to exit terminal)

Then use windows or whatever program you use to format the card to fat32 happy days

Totally forgot about Diskpart. Unfortunately I still have a black screen.

I'm starting to doubt I have a V2 new Bittboy. Yes I do have the clicky start/select buttons but I may need to take this guy apart and confirm.

I absolute cannot get this new firmware to work.

I can confirm I have the v2 "new" Bittboy. I have used multiple SD cards, multiple programs to wipe/format said cards and multiple programs to write the image onto the card.

All I get is a black screen.

None of the tutorial videos are accurate, I do not get the same folder structure they show.

Am I doing something wrong here? I've already tried the latest firmware listed (V3.1_Beta_20190314), still nothing.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Also make sure you wipe your card like this first

How to wipe your sd card completely all partitions ready for bittboy firmware flashing.

Start (diskpart) from windows start menu by typing it in start search bar menu
Then type the below commands in the terminal window.


list disk (this will list all your drives on your computer)
select disk  (what ever number is your sd card please type it after select disk be careful here)
clean (When you type clean it will clear all partitions)
create partition primary (This command will create a new partition)
exit (type exit to exit terminal)

Then use windows or whatever program you use to format the card to fat32 happy days

Pretty sure I have a dud Bittboy here.

I have a new V2 Bittboy that absolutely refuses to work with the new firmware. I have followed directions and videos to a 'T'. All I get is a black screen on my Bittboy and I have confirmed that I have v2; start/select buttons are 'clicky' and it says MIYOO_V2.0 under the cover by the SD slot.

I have tried multiple different SD cards, different ways of formatting/deleting partitions on said drives and multiple different programs to write the image to the SD card, all result in the same black screen. I have also formatted on multiple computers using multiple different card readers. This process has been performed on Windows 10, Windows 7, Linux (Lubuntu) and MacOS. I have spent literally more than 8 hours trying to get this working. I only purchased the Bittboy because of the great new firmware.

Have you guys seen this issue with any of the V2 Bittboys? What do I do now? The Bittboy itself functions just fine with the stock firmware and I have been enjoying it that way but would love to unlock its true potential with the firmware. Anyone have any experience with their support?

My V2 Bittboy will only boot CFW. If i try to boot with an sd card with relevant roms on the root it will not boot ( black screen). Also it will not dual boot. When i ordered mine i paid for one without the sd card but it came with an sd card and cfw on the card, this all works and the updated cfw works also. This is not an issue for me as i intend to use cfw anyway!

Quake crashes for me once i enter the water with the bio suite.  ???

After formatting the micro sd card and installing the new software everything works after inserting card into the console (I played quake1). Unfortunately, I can't upload roms to the console, because my win7 detects only one partition called "boot" with a capacity of 256mb. I used a program called Mini Tool Partition and noticed the presence of a folder called "main". Unfortunately, I was unable to set it as visible to the windows 7 explorer. Someone help?

Try giving that drive main another letter in the partition tool then expand the fat32 partition main.

After open micro sd card in Mini tool partition only "boot" has letter. I can give letter to "main" but after saving changes letter in main disappears. I can explore "main" in Mini Tool Partition but I can't change anything inside.
