You're not late, it hasn't been released yet.

Thanks I'm just glad that the option to add more emulators will soon be possible with this system! Thanks again for taking the time to figure this out!

Is your Legends Flashback the 2018 (50 games) or 2019 (100 games) version? You can't flash the firmware from the 2018 version in the 2019 FB. The only way to fix a soft-brick is reflashing the device using the Rockchip tools and a good backup.

Are you familiar with soldering? You will need to short a couple of points to enable USB data transfer mode. I managed to do that with clear tape, but soldering the jumpers would be easier. If your Flashback is the 2018 model, I can help with the files to recover the device.

Mine is not completely bricked, but it doesn't work right. I can get to the menu and choose games, but then it goes to "Loading>>>" and hangs up forever. Even booting from the USB drive with CFW, it hangs when running games. Very strange.

 

I can install the firmware from the ATGames page, and even tried older ones, but nothing fixes it.

 

If you know of a way to restore it, I can try. :)

 

Maybe if someone still has older firmware files available, I can reflash. Someone mentioned the 2.3 update would restore the rom and emulator partitions. Maybe I am now missing one or both of those?

and so, it was the TV causing your issues? so weird. I wonder if others had that issue and just didn't figure out what you learned?

Yes, it all works fine on one, but not the other. As far as I can tell, it's the fact that there is no sound handling on the monitor I had it connected to.

check this video out. Is it the HDMI cord?

The cable is the same one I use on my MiSTer setup. I will try to swap it and see, though.

 

EDIT: Nope, it's the monitor. I swapped the HDMI cable with the one that works on the ASUS display.

I'm struggeling to find the older firmware (post #47, http://cds.i2e7g6m3.hwcdn.net/afz/arcade_update_v2.3_1114.img), the link seems to be broken.

Is it essential for installing a custom firmware or can I use an alternate version?

Has AtGames ever made a fix for the firmware update that swaps the Nintendo A/B buttons? Or has anyone ever figured out a workaround for it? I have the Legends Flashback with 100 games from 2019.
Bought it and never saw the warning about the button swap and did the update and now NES games are a pain to play. Thanks.
