  • A brand new default theme made specifically for EmuELEC! Crystal!
  • For easy access with any computer a third partition (EEROMS) will now be created on the first boot as FAT32, which is where all the ROMS will be stored.
  • Update folder is now located in EEROMS/.update in case you want to copy the update files directly, its also still accesible from the samba share
  • S912 (Including most Pandora) will no longer be supported, if you have one of those 3.9 is the latest version
  • Most save states are now in one folder (/storage/roms/savestates/[system] or EEROMS/savestates/[system]) I might have missed a few of the standalone emulators, but if you find any issues with that, please let me know, please make sure you move them there if you plan to keep using your old ones
