Title: Is my N8 legit and can I update the OS
Post by: NewUser85 on June 06, 2021, 07:33 PM
Hi!

I bought a 2nd hand N8.
First question I have is....is it legit?
And second question I have is how do I update the OS? it is on 1.24 right now which works fine for me.

The above post is probably a spammer so ignore him.
Edit: The spammer's post was deleted by a mod.

The OS is on the SD card so just replace the OS folder with the latest one. Delete the old folder after saving anything you want to keep (if you have already made save files that you want to keep) and then copy the folder from the latest OS to the root of the SD card. Copy roms to another folder on the SD card, not in the OS folder. If you have problems you can try reformatting the SD card and start over. Backup your roms first of course.

I don't know if it's legit. You need to show pics of the PCB at least.

Btw how do I get save states to work ?
The button combo's are set but dom't seem to work. Also can't get game genie codes to work somehow. Must be doing something wrong

i know that china fake everdrive managed to counterfeit the latest hardware and upadted the software to v1.24 . 

Neither it can downgrade nor upgrade the software.

As for the save states, are you playing on a clone, or an original NES?  Save states don't work on clones.

I got save states to work.
I'm playing a a clone with a legit nes cpu and ppu.
Turned out savestates are disabled by default on my everdrive
