Is this normal? If yes, is there a command to start rerto engine?

OK, thanks.
Your board should be able to run the 3.0.1 version, slim or full.

Could you launch RetrOrangePI (ROPI) without the expansion board? It could be an power issue: see here. There I found this: "... Q: My board does not boot or all I got is a black screen:
A: Things to try: reformat SD card with Panasonic SD formatter => reflash image with DD(linux) or Win32diskimager (windows) => change power supply (most likely!!!!!) ..."


Have you tried another µSD card?

thanks for tips.

unfortunately, cant lunch without the expansion board, I've only equipment for 3,5 jack video output.
yes I tried another SD with same result

now with nokia wall changer and I've formatted with Panasonic SD formatter and re-flashed with Win32diskimager, currently works properly, although now I shut it down correctly and not just pull out the power... it make sense I guess but not sure

as cant transfer game roms via wifi/home network, I need to know how can I make it via usb flash drive.

could you maybe help?
edited: forget it, random freezing... I'll send it back to seller

thanks for your time and help
