Please, everyone, state what SD card you're testing (brand/model/price range/retailer)

at least for me the above image worked well after a few reboots, still not perfect though, a couple of black screens

First boot was fine, resized the sd card etc.  and restarted.
Gamepad works immediately, no more waiting for buttons to work.
New Retroarch skin is much better readable now.

Booted ~10 times until now, every boot was successful, no kernel errors so far.

The only thing i'm missing now is video view in gamelist (http://orangepi.club/showthread.php?tid=2627).

64GB sdcards are very hit and miss, try smaller ones
edit: this happens with Allwinner boards in general, not Retrostone specific

I don't know if it makes any difference, just to let you know:
During all of my successful tests, i had
- no USB devices connected
- no charger connected
- no ethernet connected
- no headphone connected

Just the naked Retrostone (fully charged) and the freshly imaged sdcard.
