Undertale on RG351P & RG351M

Last updated: 22MAR2021 (see Changelog for details)

Today we’re going to install and play Undertale on the RG351P and RG351M thanks to the AnberPorts app. Installing this game is a little tricky, because it uses assets from the Linux version of Undertale. In this guide I’ll show you how to extract those Linux files using a Windows PC.

351ELEC 2.0 Released: The Ultimate “Plug and Play” Firmware for RG351 Devices

Last Updated: 23FEB2021

When it comes to custom firmware options for the RG351 devices, 351ELEC is a masterclass in curation and user friendliness. While I adore ArkOS for how easy it is to tinker with the device and firmware, 351ELEC is more suited to those who just want to jump into some games without having to do a lot of tweaking.

Lucky for us, 351ELEC 2.0 is now available, and it has hundreds (over 275, to be more precise) of new tweaks under the hood and in the user experience. Check out the video for my full breakdown, and also see the notes below for links to some of the things I mention in the video.
