    Hey I was wondering how do I turn off the 5 second countdown to restart emulation station, I find it really annoying since the whole reason I exit out of emulation station is to use the command prompt. If anyone can help me remove this feature that would be great.

    in /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary/emulationstation.sh

    remove these lines:
    https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/68ed50d5362677e75cff5a31c35dd30b722f0da0/scriptmodules/supplementary/emulationstation.sh#L78-L82

    then save your edits and then reinstall emulationstation from the setup script- then it should go away.

    It is also possible it may just work without a reinstall but I’m not sure about that.

    Make a backup first just in case with something like win32diskimager.

    See this video on updating/installing things from the setup script:
