I ran into some bluetooth troubles again bc I was stupid and pretty much tried starting from scratch reformatting the microsd and re-writing the OS. btw I could only connect the bluetooth controller when i added
sudo hciconfig hci0 up
sudo bluez-test-input connect 58:2D:89:2E:00:01 (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX)
to the rc.local between fi and exit0.
I don’t know if that a Matricom thing but that took a good portion of my saturday lol.
That being said i’ll just take the long way and do this manually via file manager for now. The only thing i didn’t try was reformatting the usb and putting all those roms back on it (which I have backed up somewhere). although if it were a bad usb flashdrive then why would it manually let me copy files with file manager?
