Just Enough Linux Operating System (JELOS) is an immutable Linux distribution for handheld gaming devices developed by a small community of enthusiasts. Our goal is to produce an operating system that has the features and capabilities that we need, and to have fun as we develop it.
JELOS supports a variety of ARM and Intel/AMD based devices1.

1 While not technically supported, JELOS is known to work well on a variety of generic x86_64 devices including gaming PCs, mini PCs, and laptop computers.
2 Anbernic RG353P/M/V/VS devices with both v1 and v2 displays are supported.
3 To boot JELOS on Ayaneo devices, hold LC and volume up and press the power button, continue holding "LC" and volume up until the Ayaneo logo appears. Select the storage device with JELOS from the boot menu using the Ayaneo button, and then press volume up to boot the distribution.
4 The AIR Plus is a new device and has a few known issues, sleep is currently working in S0 only so be sure to power the device off when it's not in active use to prevent possible damage. Fan and LED controls are not currently available.

Like any Linux distribution, this project is not the work of one person. It is the work of many persons all over the world who have developed the open source bits without which this project could not exist. Special thanks to CoreELEC, LibreELEC, and to developers and contributors across the handheld community.
