eMMC + SD behaviour
#1
On V4 release, we included the eMMC installer, so you can copy ROPi to the internal memory. We also added a setting to keep SD alive after a reboot (not default). Looks like the sdcard cannot be inserted or it will halt the boot. So we now need to add more features: if its possible, make it work even inserted? Mount it automatically? Reformat it? Store roms? Store other content?

Please post your thoughts.

without additional tweaking , this is default behaviour. Boot without the sdcard, open Desktop - File Manager, then insert the sdcard, it should detect it. If yes, we need to add support for an automount feature , making the SD card forward boot to eMMC.

please test and tell us how easy:
1. emmc - install from RetroPie/RetrOrangePi menu, should take more than 30 minutes. Shutdown board , remove sdcard
2. usb roms - install usbromservice from RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/Configuration, create the following folder structure on the root of your usb drive:

retropie-mount =>RetroPie => roms=> atari2600,nes,snes,mastersystem etc

when you plug it in, it will create more folders automatically

The orange pi "bios" always boot on sd then Emmc, right? It is possible make a boot file inside of roms sd card to boot emmc and automount Sd on boot?

I think something is wrong with USBromservice. It's not mount drive on usbstick neither sd. Mount drive working on armbian desktop, but i think the links on folder is wrong too.

usbromservice is working fine, there was a mistake on my post above. The correct is retropie-mount => roms, BIOS, configs => atari2600,nes,snes,mastersystem etc, there is no RetroPie folder in between

1. "retropie-mount" is not a folder, is the mounted patition, right?
2. i tried to start the usbromservice from a clean install. I Never started usbromservice from 3.0.1, just in 4.0 version and i install from emmc(i remember there is a problem with that). But for me is not work.

I will try to install from the SD image them pass to eMMC and post the results.
