Welcome to the recalbox-os wiki!


RecalboxOS is the operating system of the recalbox project, an out-of-the-box emulation console based on the Raspberry Pi. Starting from Recalbox 6.0 DragonBlaze, Odroid XU4 and C2 boards, as well as PC (32 and 64bits) are supported. See for more information.

RecalboxOS uses many awesome existing components, like EmulationStation2 as frontend, piFBA and Retroarch as emulators, RaspberryPI NOOBS as installation/recovery system.

RecalboxOS can be resumed to a single word : EASY. We want to provide a very user friendly system. No file configuration, no ssh terminal. Install and play.
But we also provide an all in one configuration file, named recalbox.conf , that provides fine configuration of all emulators !
