    Hello

    I m very new in retropie workflow, i ve downloaded the last img for raspberry and try to start EmulationStation.

    Yesterday i had an error about Alsa and the splashscreen EmulationStation flashing.
    So after a little of google i ve found a solution to configure the /boot/config.txt in the idea than the Alsa error message crashed the emulatorstation.

    Now i do not have errors messages but always the splashscreen flashing and blocked on it.
    The log do not seems to show any problems so i m confuse about how to resolve this bug.
    the rapsberry is RASPBERRY PI 2 MODEL B

    Any help would be appreciate 😉
    This the es_log.txt and boot/config.txt files.

    this the log:

    Hi, I tried to update to the latest 3.2.1 image by the internal binary update and get the same issue. If anybody has any info on this it seems a few folks are having issues with the new update.

    Thanks for the help… I went all the way to 256 with no change. Still getting a blinking emulationstation loading screen. I’m trying a fresh install to see if that does the trick.

    Did you reboot after changing memory allocation?

    I used the internal reboot… I will try to unplug and plug back in once i have backed up my files if you think that would work.

    This could be a good things, config.txt is loaded only on the boot sequence and hardware allocations too.
