Thanks for building this. I downloaded and it's up and running. For some reason I can't connect to my WiFi, any ideas? As I was typing this I just realized you probably have your WiFi setting configured for a country other than the US. I'll set my regional settings and let you know if that fixes it.

After setting my WiFi country to US, I was still unable to connect to WiFi. Wired Ethernet works fine. With stock TinkerOS, both Ethernet and WiFi were working. I'll dig around some more tomorrow, just curious if you have any thoughts on what might be different with your build.
i have no issues setting up wifi from US/UK country setting ... can be done through both the desktop and the retropie menu

USB NES style controller and Bluetooth Xbox One S controller working here. To get the Xbox One S Bluetooth controller to work, I had to add the following to the append statement in /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf:


Here's the full contents of my extlinux.conf:
label kernel-4.4
   kernel /zImage
   fdt /rk3288-miniarm.dtb
   append  earlyprintk console=tty1 rw init=/sbin/init bluetooth.disable_ertm=Y

Also, I just logged in via SSH over WiFi to my Tinker Board to check my extlinux.conf, so I guess that means my WiFi is now working...  Big Grin
ante i dont know about your controller ... i only have the generic snes usb and 8bitdo NES30 Pro controllers so i cant test ... unfortunately you will need to see if you can get the controller installed/configured on the Desktop ... looking on the website for that controller it only shows drivers available for windows
yep thats what im looking for
so after much tinkering today ... i have finally got Kodi up and running on the Retropie image ... connected to my NAS boxes ... content loaded and working ...

Kodi now launches from the Retropie Carouselle and from the PORTS sections ...

simple issue of my controller not being functional ... on the todo list to figure out why Kodi is not seeing it

i will be adding these tweaks to the 16GB image and an upload shall follow probably later today or tomorrow for this functionality Big Grin

Kodi Big Grin
as promised ... please find link with Kodi fully incorporated into Retropie ... functioning from both the PORTS and the Carouselle

Retropie Tinker Image 0.3

Image has been updated to have Kodi 17.3 on the image ...

This is using mac-l1 Script ... as i noticed that when i was watching Avatar yesterday i had sound and no image ... this is down to no HW Acceleration being there

so i used his script and updated to 17.3 ... i did perform a apt-get update && apt-get upgrade prior to running his script so the system is completely upto date as of now ...

performing a apt-get upgrade may break Kodi in the future but i can fix the image at that time
