Roberto Besser edited this page Apr 21, 2018 · 7 revisions

In order to get a terminal with root access on the recalbox, you have two options:

SSH

  • On a Mac you can use the internal terminal
  • On Windows you can use PuTTy (Recommended terminal) or MobaXTerm
  • For Linux systems you can use the internal shell resp. terminal.
    Type: ssh root@your_recalbox_ip

To connect through SSH to your recalbox, the following credentials are used:

  • Hostname (recalbox) or IP
  • root as username
  • recalboxroot as password

Direct access

On the frontend screen, press F4 to quit, then ALT+F2 to get a terminal and use the same credentials as above.

Important: If you use the direct access it is necessary to have a plugged in keyboard
