I tried the eMMC install in PC Plus, but the system won't boot from eMMC in 4.2. Maybe create a Slim image support of findings thread in the 4.2 forum section

Got: error on screen eMMC boot

Updates don't seem to work either on PC Plus, i'll try with fresh install.
UPDATE: Figured out why updates don't work, the on board ethernet is not enabled or not working. Doesn't have an IP address.

First boot takes a long time and I get <6 on screen for a couple of minutes.

Install via armbian-config
Old installers won't work

Just tried downloading and unzipping the RetroStone Pi image, and unzip fails.

I get these messages via WinRAR:
"Unknown method in RetrOrangePi_4.2_SLIM_Armbian_5.54_Retrostone_Debian_jessie_default_3.4.113.img"
"operation failed"

And when I try to flash that .img file to an SD card anyway, I get this message via Win32DiskImager: "The specified file contains no data"

Something went wrong with the download, try again

Since the facebook group has shut down the commenting, do we have updated images with the needed fixes now?

RE: v4.2 SLIM RELEASE - alexkidd - 08-21-2018

not yet, i'm finishing full release, might replace it maybe, just a gig more, maybe it would be a slim plus!
