RG351P & RG351M Starter Guide (2021 edition)

RG351P & RG351M Starter Guide (2021 edition)

Last updated: 16MAR2021 (see Changelog for details)

Back in November, I wrote my first Starter Guide for the RG351P. Since then, there have been a few changes to the device: a new model, and custom firmware that simplifies the setup process.

So in this guide I will show you what to do during your first 20 minutes with a new RG351P or RG351M. This entry-level walkthrough will show you how to boot up games, back up your files, flash the 351ELEC firmware, and more!

RG280V: Unboxing and First Impressions

RG280V: Unboxing and First Impressions

Hey everyone, I had an opportunity to unbox and spend a few minutes with the new Anbernic RG280V, which is a 2.8″ mini handheld with the same internal architecture as the RG350 devices. That means that for the most part, it will use the same emulators and have the same performance as those devices. See below for my video about the device, and expect more videos and guides soon.

Introducing 351ELEC – a new firmware for the RG351P!

Introducing 351ELEC – a new firmware for the RG351P!

Last updated: 12JAN2021

I’m excited to show off a new fork of EmuELEC, called 351ELEC, which is designed specifically for the RG351P. This firmware incorporates the most recent release of EmuELEC and also has a FAT32 “Games” partition which allows you to drag and drop ROM files directly onto your SD card. Like with ArkOS, 351ELEC is a more feature-rich and user-friendly operating system than the stock firmware.
