Preparations

Transferring game roms

via SD card reader (Linux HOST-PC)

Insert your SD card which you have installed to your HOST-PC and then, copy game ROMs to /roms folder.
You can find the /roms folder like the picture below. You can copy your game ROMs into the /roms folder without any permission.

* Since the SD card data partition file system is EXT4, you can't access itfrom a Windows PC probably.
So we need to prepare a way to transfer ROM files from a USB storage on the system.

via ssh(scp)

First of all, you can check your network environment. If you have any USB network module, follow this instruction for the use of the network.
Connecting your GO-Advance to an wireless network with an extra USB WiFi adapter.

Compatible WiFi dongles are sold separately.
WiFi module 0
WiFi module 3
WiFi module 5A

After that, you can send your game ROMs to the GO-Advance with “scp” command on your HOST-PC.

sudo apt install ssh
scp <ROM file> odroid@<ip address>:/roms/<rom folder>/

For example,

ping 192.168.0.10
scp test.gba odroid@192.168.0.10:/roms/gba/

Force Power OFF

If you have any problem with your ODROID-GO-Advance, you will try to switch off.
You can switch off ODROID-GO-Advance by pushing the on/off buttons for about 6 seconds.
