Retroid Pocket 2 – Android 8.1 Install Guide

Retroid Pocket 2 – Android 8.1 Install Guide

Last updated: 02JAN2021 (see Changelog for details)

After months of promises, a rescinded update, and a very patient Retroid Pocket 2 community, we finally have the Android 8.1 update that has been in the works since August.

I have to say that this operating system update does wonders for the UI lag issues that were prominent in the original Android 6.0 OS, and it has breathed new life into my device. So I decided to document my upgrade experience so that you could easily follow the steps. Please note that you will need a Windows PC in order to run this update, because we will be using .exe and batch files, which won’t run on MacOS. If you are a Mac user, check out my guide on how to run a virtual Windows machine.

Among Us is a popular game on Steam and smartphones, and given that it isn’t very CPU-intensive, it seems like a perfect fit for the Android-based Retroid Pocket 2. The only problem is that the game is designed for touch controls. Luckily, there’s a very easy workaround to get this game up and running on your handheld device.

Note that this method will work for just about any touch-based Android app, so if you have a favorite game that you’re itching to try, this is your solution.

I have a confession to make: I’d never really played the Sega Dreamcast until my Retroid Pocket 2 arrived in the mail. Because of this fact, I ended up diving into this system first, to explore all of the new games (well, new to me). Here is my quick guide on how to set up Dreamcast emulation on your Retroid Pocket 2. There are still a lot of people out in the community finding new ways to improve gameplay on this device, so expect frequent updates to the guide in the future.

One of my most pleasant surprises with a new Retroid Pocket 2 is that it can play Nintendo DS games surprisingly well. I just didn’t think that was possible with a single screen, let alone a lack of touchscreen, but it turns out that many games are very manageable with the Retroid Pocket 2, thanks to a special DS emulator called DraStic. So in this guide I’ll walk you through how to download and configure DraStic, and list off some games that perform really well with the Retroid Pocket 2.
