My own custom firmware for the RS-97
« on: July 14, 2018, 05:47:19 pm »
Hello guys,Last month, two people have donated to me 2 RS-97, a chinese knockoff console with an Ingenic JZ460 SoC clocked at 600Mhz with a horrible screen of 320x480. (but with an aspect ratio of 4:3, kind of like the much infamous CR4 Ti-nspire...)
Anyway, after working almost a week on it, i have released a custom firmware for it using buildroot & steward's work.
It uses musl-libc rather than uclibc, a standard compliant libc library with backward & upward compatibility. (which uclibc does not, binaries will crash unless you recompile them)I have released two videos that shows how games & emulators run on that thing :



If you happen to own such a console then grab a build here :

Here's the relevant source code :

https://github.com/gameblabla/handy-rs97
https://github.com/gameblabla/ecwolf
https://github.com/gameblabla/dumbsnes
https://github.com/gameblabla/rs97-fixesgames

And more on my github repo. (i need to sync them on my gitlab account again)
Do let me know what you think of the RS-97 console : A lot of people are talking trash about it.
Well, some of the criticism is deserved i suppose. (such as the device being under-powered, having a weird screen...)

Well I don't know anything about these, but thank you for your service. As long as the device is cheap anything is forgivable.
