Finally we can change the theme from the console itself without having to remove the card and insert it into the computer, overwrite the theme we had and put the new one.
Reddit User Standard-Pepper-6510 surprised us today with the long-awaited news of the release of this GarlicOs mod.
Here we leave you the video that he has published where we can see the mod in operation with themes downloaded from our page, RG35XX.COM and also the system icon packs!
As we already advanced yesterday, Black Seraph added Play Videos functionality from GarlicOs Custom Firmware. This has been achieved thanks to Retroarch’s Core ffmpeg, which we already tried to make work without success, logically we are not as expert as him…
Since version 1.0.6 of GarlicOs, this function is already available, and the way to use it is through a new folder in the ROMS directory, called VIDEOS, and where we will have to put our .mkv files, (since Black Seraph comments which in .mp4 has some kind of conflict). It also indicates some instructions to correctly encode the file, which we understand is through the command line using the ffmpeg app from your computer, which we leave below: “ffmpeg -i input.mkv -vf scale=640×480 -vcodec libx264 -profile:v main -level 3.1 -preset medium -crf 23 -x264-params ref=4 -acodec libvorbis -movflags +faststart output.mkv”
We have used the Handbrake application for many years to convert our videos, so we decided to give it a try, thanks to the information provided by the Reddit user raymodromero, and we have created a Preset to be able to use it when we need it. Here we leave the preset for you to import into Handbrake.
From the Retro Handhelds, Youtube channel, today we bring you this video tutorial, where they teach us how to download and install Black Seraph’s, Garlic operating system, how to install it on the memory card, and also how to get new themes for GarlicOs, and They mention and recommend us, we cannot be happier and more proud.
Then they teach us how to open the handheld, proceed to change the rear triggers for new, more comfortable ones, from@better-buttons (with the code RETROHANDHELDS they give you a 10% discount), and also how to replace the battery with another with more capacity , of 2800Mah, which can be obtained > HERE! <.
