OrangePi PC Plus - Setup Install on EMMC roms on SD
#1
This community is fantastic so I thought I would give back to it, as I have had issues with the OrangePi PC Plus setup.


Here is how to get it working out of the box. Hope this helps.

Download -

http://www.retrorangepi.org/RetrOrangePi...top.img.7z

Extract the IMG file.

Download SD Memory Card Formater -
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/

Download Win32DiskImager -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Connect your PI to your network using ethernet cable.
Insert your SD card into your PC and format using SD Memory Card Formatter on default settings.

Open Win32diskImager and select the extracted IMG file and WRITE.

Once this is done, insert into your OrangePi PC Plus and turn on.

It will go through its setup process and eventually you will be in the EmulationStation controller configuration screen.

Setup a controller and press start and Exit EmulationStation so the screen is back at the terminal.

On your Laptop download PuTTY -
https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgta...atest.html

Run PuTTY and when asked type in the IP address shown on your Pi's terminal screen.
Once connected it will ask for USERNAME and PASSWORD
both are - pi

Copy this code below, this will allow you to run AMIGA (amiberry)

sudo cp -av /usr/local/lib/libSDL2* /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/

A few lines of code will appear and then once finished we are going to install your RetrOrangePi image to emmc.

Type in

sudo armbian-config

The armbian config screen will appear, goto SYSTEM, INSTALL, boot from eMMC - system on eMMC, then is asked to select which format, leave as default, then enter.
It will display an estimated time to finish this process, make yourself a cup of tea.

Once finished, it will ask to power off. Press enter.
When the Pi has rebooted, again quit emulation station. Reload PuTTY and log back in.

Once in terminal again on computer, type

---------------------------------------------

sudo parted /dev/mmcblk0
mklabel msdos
mkpart primary fat32 1MiB 100%
set 1 boot on
quit

sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1

-------------------------------------------

Now your SD card is ready, now we need to mount it.

Download WinSCP - 
https://winscp.net/eng/download.php

Open it and connect using the same IP address for your Pi

Username and password is again - pi

Navigate to this directory

/opt/retropie/configs/all

Open - autostart.sh

You will see a text file appear.

Under the line 'done' make a new line and copy this,

sudo mount -o rw,users,umask=000 /dev/mmcblk0p1 /home/pi/RetroPie

Click the save icon at the top and quit WinSCP

Your card is now mounted for roms.

Reboot Pi  - It will say there is no roms and the only option is to QUIT, do that so you are back in terminal.
Reconnect WinSCP to it.

Navigate to this directory

/home/pi/RetroPie


You will see it is empty

Download -
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hpcDVI..._OeVM4ioSM

extract this and copy contents to the /home/pi/RetroPie directory.

Thats it.

The roms and systems you can add but thats all I have done and its working 100%.... so far Smile

Hopefully this helps everyone.

Glad I could help.
If I can make it any more clearer I will.

I am experimenting with altering cpu speeds to make it more stable as it does soradically crash.
So far tested 120 MIN 960 MAX (ONDEMAND) and its stable and not running overly warm.

If typing in the first line shows an error. Press ignore, reboot pi and try again.

This should work.

Yep, when it says - you should reboot, reboot the system then redo those steps and it will continue fine.
