RG350 Software Repository
« on: January 02, 2020, 10:09:26 pm »
Hello,

I have just aquired an RG350 after using my RS97 (V1.0) for a long time, mainly to try and have a bit of better support in SNES, PSX and Arcade emulation, as well as RTC support. RS97 software bugs were also a pain sometimes.

I'm wondering if there's a repository of .opk files for the unit available somewhere. I know of the excellent work by @gameblabla already since before Useless.
Is it possible to use the .opks from GCW0? I know they are old and might even have incompatibilities.

Also, what should be the "correct" (meaning: less bugs, stabler system with more capabilities) version? The Tony original one? Discord one? Ninoh-Fox's "Rogue"?

Best regards.

They are old but because the same rootfs is still being used, they are still compatible with those.
Otherwise the stock firmware wouldn't have anything at all.

There's my repo for both RG-350 and GCW0 stuff :
https://gameblabla.nl/files/ipk/gcw0/

Use the RG-350 version over the old GCW0 whenever available because i have fixed some issues since then. (For example, Temper had issues with 6-buttons & rapid fire caused by miscompilation by GCC... yes)

As for the other ports though... Well someone backuped the GCW0 releases here (not all of them though):
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1gF5AHpe5V-o-G9FyzrhFJ2oTPBSBke50?usp=drive_open

I believe there's more stuff missing to that collection. Oh well

I would recommend for the RG-350 just sticking with Tony's update OPK :
https://github.com/tonyjih/RG350_linux/releases

You can also use the ROGUE CFW but it doesn't have any new additions for the RG-350 (though its PG2 variant is recommended for the PG2) aside from changes like forced performance mode with CPUfreq, fixes to the initial slowdown when booting up, exFAT support. (You really shouldn't use exFAT though)

Are these newer compared with the software in the GCW0 website?

What's the difference between legacy and inactive? What is the date of the last build for each package?

Thank you both. I think this should be stickied or something, the first two responses were concise and helpful, and could prevent people from searching dozen of threads.

We're not tracking each individual release by each author (that's just too much to do) so we're not recording dates and version numbers, we're linking back to the auther for that when available.

In a general sense, inactive is where we still have a source repository and they're actually still existing on GitHub, but nothing's been done as far as code updates or releases in a long time. Legacy is where we located the OPK but can't locate a source repository or website to refer to, and are simply hosting the OPK itself in order to preserve it and keep it from being lost.
