I am running RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 3, and like it, but I would love to get it running on rock 64.

I will be ordering a 4 gig rock 64 tomorrow... Once I get it, if no one has tried, I will attempt it.

I have and I even tried. I tried the Odroid C2 install and even added a custom install option to systems.sh  
Code:
function platform_armv8-mali() {                                                                
__default_cflags="-march=armv8-a+crc -mtune=cortex-a53 -ftree-vectorize -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"                                                                          
__default_asflags=""                                                                        
__default_makeflags="-j$(nproc)"                                                            
__platform                                                                                  
}

But that didn't work either. It probably will take someone considerably smarter to get it working in the end who will understand why the makefile fails. Is just my lack of know-how; as I mention in the write-up, I had mupen running nicely in retroarch...
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
