But somehow, it all seems to work out in the end. So in this guide I’ll show you how to set the device up, some tips and tricks, as well as a teardown video.

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.
