Hi!

If you want to turn your WeTek Play in a "GameConsole" then try Lakka
Built on top of the famous RetroArch emulator, Lakka is able to emulate a large range of hardware and has some usefull features such as Braid-like rewinding, joypad hotplug and video streaming.
Here is a video, showing Lakka in BananaPi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZGiDBb33xk

I had Lakka running on my RPi for some time now and I asked the Devs, if they could release a experimental Image for the WeTek Play, because it is based on OE. Some hours later I got a Mail with the Link to the experimental Image.

It runs with some small glitches:
- after booting there is the default white Background showing "WeTek Play"
and a small box showing the Lakka icon with a black background
- when scrolling (pressing up/down) in the Lakka-GUI there is the default
background (see above) showing for a few milliseconds
according to the Lakka-Dev, the bootloader (bootsplash) has to be cleared and they can't support the WeTek Play officially, because they don't own the devices *hint* ;)

Here you can try it out:

Installation:
DL the img.gz and write it to your mSD-Card like OE.
If you have already OE running, you can rename the kernel.img and SYSTEM of OE and put the Lakka kernel.img and SYSTEM on the card.

ROMs:
Make sure you put your ROMS in /storage/roms

Tried only 2048 and SNES so far ;)
