Pi Zero W Retropie

Post by VeteranGamer » Mon Mar 06, 2017 11:29 am

ignore the post if you've recently updated... but if you want an updated img be my guest

Image

if anyone gets their Pi Zero W and their Retropie build does not work on it, then your not the only one....

I got hold of my Pi Zero W the day after release and tried to test it out straight away, but my Retropie build would not work... did a fresh install and again no luck.... luckily I wasnt the only one...

I found a img that works

i'm sure there gonna be an update soon to accommodate the Pi Zero W

Anyone tried 3.7 ? i downed the image, hope retropie will release the official one soon, if that guy was able to fix it, retropie guys will do it too.
Works for now :mrgreen:

the img is completely safe i obtained it from the Retropie discussion board (after several users confirmed it works and is safe)

but good luck with 3.7 (however you can update within retropie)

Latest version of RetroPie works fine if you SSH to it and update as follows:

sudo apt-get update

then:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I have done this on mine and all good.

There is no downloadable working image though (official) that I know of.

@wermy maybe this needs a sticky until Retropie release a downloadable image?

Cheers
