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

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.

Today I’m going to give you a quick overview of Anberports, a neat pre-compiler app for RG351 devices running on ArkOS firmware. You can use it to load over 25 standalone ports, like Half-Life, Quake III Arena, Diablo II, and Aliens vs. Predator, plus run streaming services like Moonlight, Stadia, and even GeForce Now.

Were you entranced by the incredible graphics of LaserDisc arcade games back in the early 1980s? Me too. I have a vivid memory of my brothers and I shoving quarter after quarter into Dragon’s Lair one day, only to find that the game was super hard and that we were basically throwing our money away.

Luckily, there is a LaserDisc arcade emulator available on the RG351 (and other retro handheld devices), so you can play these games without having to sacrifice precious quarters. So this guide will walk you through how to get it set up.

Special thanks to Martin Newland who sent me some helpful tips and tricks to get this guide started.
