RS-97 V3.0 RetroFW Not Working
« on: January 17, 2021, 12:51:54 pm »
I've picked up an RS-97 from Amazon recently with the intention of running RetroFW on it

I've installed the appropriate version to the internal SD card  the system turns on but the screen is black but the backlight is on, no text or image appears. After a few seconds the screen backlight flick off then on again which I assume means something is happening.

Eventually I assume the first boot process completes as I pressing the power button turns the screen off and pressing again turns it on again and the backlight button can adjust brightness.

So I assume the OS is booting and running but showing no image

I've tried multiple RetroFW images with either the same results or not booting at all with V1 versions.

The board states

RETRO-GAME-V3.0
LCD_LKWY030A01
2019.9.19

I've followed the instructions on the RetroFW GitHub to install but no luck.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this an unsupported model?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, I tried 5B a couple of times to no avail but today I bought a brand new SD card and tried 5B again and it's now working.

Thanks again.

Is RetroFW 2.0 the most up to date firmware out there? Are there any alternatives?
Devices:
RS-97 v2.1 (modded)
