Circuit Shield other OS? (LAKKA)

Post by SPNX700 » Wed Dec 29, 2021 5:42 am

Hi, this is my first post on this forum so please bear with me.

I have just finished building my circuit shield and I love it.
The only thing that bothers me is the limited choice of operating systems. I find Retropie rather convoluted and long for the simplicity of pure RetroArch. That is why I would like to inquire whether it would be possible to install kite's custom software to lakka?

I am looking forward to hearing about your experiences, also with other OSes.

I tried but hadn't had any success, you need to have a bit of Linux knowledge for pulling this off.

I've tried:
- Lakka which wouldn't load after the lakka logo
- Recalbox which works, but you don't have Wi-Fi or save shutdown or the extra Kite menu (for changing sound level or LCD brightness)
- Batocera (didn't work, but didn't know what went wrong) :)

It didn't work because the kernel needs to be patched and some code needs to be rewritten.
