Krikzz has just released a new firmware for the Everdrive N8 Pro; A ROM cart that comes in both Famicom and NES variants and plays roms from both consoles, as well as the Famicom Disk System. ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: If you migrate from OS v2.12 or older version and you have made game saves, it’s recommended you install v2.14 first. This will let you export the old saves, then import them to this version. More info below:

*Important feature for modern homebrew games which uses own custom mappers.
This feature allows the ROM to be supplied along with the mapper file,
without the need to integrate the mapper into the cartridge software.
Just put mapper *.rbf file along with ROM file in same folder and this rbf
will be used instead of regular mappers pack. rbf file name does not matter
if folder contains single rbf, otherwise rbf name should match to the ROM name.
**If you migrate from OS v2.12 or older version and you have made game saves,
then better to install OS 2.14 before jump to 2.15 in order to export old
save files to the new folder structure.
***Future OS versions will be distributed as single-file efu update.
Efu update can be installed right of the cart menu.
