    Please explain the meaning of small multicolor square in top right screen corner:
    I googled but did not find any info about.

    I thought it is like “HDD” activity led. But now it is almost always present:
    in emulationstation, in GAME, almost always.
    I am really confused I can not interprete its meaning..
    Thank you!

    It’s a warning that your power supply is under-voltage.

    Ocbgold is correct- its good to have a power supply that is at least 1A- preferably 5V 2A.

    I feel happy: I could never guess it ! My power supply is 2A (Ipad one), but it seems it may be related to quite long power cable degradation (?)

    It can also be bad cables. I had some cheap cables from China that gave me the same result even though my power supply was good.
