EmuELEC - v4.4


Recommended Posts


Celebrating 1.4 million total downloads, v4.4 is finally here! this version has a LOT of changes please read through the changelog to find out about them.

As always. while we try to test every aspect of this release with many new settings, options, emulators and ports it is impossible to test it on all devices and with all games. If you find any issue please use Discord, The EmuELEC forum or if you are sure its a reproducible bug open a GitHub issue.


Huge update to base build system:

  • All Amlogic devices now use the same kernel 4.9-19!
  • You might notice a bit more performance on some emulators as well usage in general.
  • IMPORTANT: S905 (GXBB, p201) for the moment is no longer supported. If you have one of those devices (s905 no letter after the 5) DO NOT UPDATE, stay in 4.3.

Fixed Bugs:

  • One of the most annoying bugs that plagued fbdev with Retroarch was finally fixed (Issue #76)
    fixed in PR mali_fbdev fix for fps drop after egl_destroy (#789) by @spleen1981!
    This means that using Retroarch as boot up option is now possible (some small changes need to be done).
  • Fixed Bluetooth connectivity issues
  • Fix zoom not working on manuals
  • Fix many external mounting issues
  • Backup will now rename the file instead of deleting it after restore.

Cloud sync note:

Be sure to read https://rclone.org/remote_setup/#configuring-by-copying-the-config-file
Name your remote as EmuELEC_Remote and copy rclone.conf to /emuelec/configs/rclone/
finally create a folder named EmuELEC_Backup on your cloud service.

If you would like to use another name for the remote or backup folder you can create a file named
/emuelec/configs/rclone/ee_cloud_sync.cfg and add this to the file:


Cloud backup and restore options are in
"Main Menu > EmuELEC Settings > Danger Zone > Cloud Backup Settings and Game Saves"
"Main Menu > EmuELEC Settings > Danger Zone > Cloud Restore Settings and Game Saves"

Also note that this feature is currently in beta so don't put your blind fate on it working 100%
