Today we’re going to discuss systems like PlayStation 1, Dreamcast, Sega CD, and TurboGrafx-CD (PC Engine CD). Let’s organize your files and learn how to switch discs in multi-disc games, too.
This guide applies to any RK3326 retro handheld system, such as the RG351 series, PowKiddy RGB10, ODROID Go Advance/Super, and so on. This will also apply to any device that runs an EmulationStation frontend, such as the Super Console X. The video primarily focuses on the 351ELEC firmware for the RG351 devices, but can be applied to ArkOS, EmuELEC, RetroOZ, or any other EmulationStation-based operating system that runs on these devices.

In this video I’ll show you how to install the beautiful, widescreen 2013 mobile versions of Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD on any device running EmuELEC 4.0 firmware — including the ODROID Go Super, PowKiddy RGB10, and the Super Console X. And it can all be done for free! I really like these ports because they take advantage of widescreen devices like the ODROID Go Super, giving you an opportunity to play these games in a whole new way.
UPDATE: As of 01MAY2021, the Sonic ports are now available on ArkOS.
This is all thanks to a decompilation of the Sonic games, which you can find here.

Fresh off the heels of 351ELEC, another RG351P operating system is now available. This one is called ArkOS, and it has some features that may make it my favorite operating system yet.
The developer who created ArkOS is not new to RK3326 chipset devices like the RG351P, as they had previously developed an operating system called TheRA-NTFS that was used on similar ODROID GO ADVANCE handheld devices (and clones). But there were enough deviations from TheRA-NTFS to warrant a new name, and now we have ArkOS (Another RK3326 OS).
What I really love about this OS is that it has a lot of quality of life features: online updating, 32-bit and 64-bit userspace, background music, and screensaver options. So let’s dive into this OS and show why I think this might be the best one yet.

Pico-8 is one of my favorite systems to run on handheld emulation devices, because there are thousands of indie games right at your fingertips, and they are a perfect match for a handheld system.
I’m particularly excited about Pico-8 on the RG351P, because its network connectivity allows you to browse, play, and download games onto the device itself from the internet. That’s pretty exciting.
Note that this guide works for the stock modified EmuELEC firmware that ships with the Device. 351ELEC and ArkOS have their own instructions.
