RomFlix is a retro gaming front end based on Kodi, its on its own fork so can be installed alongside Kodia (so even if you already have Kodi installed – it wont clash!) – The creator, Marcos main goal behind this awesome early stages front end was to make it as easy as possible to set systems up for emulation with gameplay video (just like Hyperspin). It is worth noting that this project has only been released in the past couple of days and already has some major contributions from Team ZT as well as RetroManiacUS – but is already, even in this early stage looking to become a show stopper!
Designed with the Nvidia Shield in mind, but already tested on non-shield Android devices (and reported working!), this is one real Android pressure puller, not only to congregate the main front end menu, but then fork to all the various emulators whilst booting into the roms, Marco, we take our hats off to you this was not an easy task!
So we put the test through our T8 V Entertainment Box, which we had set up on the bench and proceeded to download, install and play this new front end- you can see from the video (we have cut download/boot times down a bit) that we got it roughed up and working nicely, this project is well worth watching and we hope to be able to bring you more news on it soon.
Download the .APK and install to your android using file manager (in security ensure that “allow unknown source install” is checked) – then run through the 3 steps of installation, just like the video above.

Also under the SETTINGS MENU, you’ll see TOOLS, simply click on that then click on ROMFLIX DOWNLOADER and you can start downloading your ROMS (with media for the menu) from within – watch the video to see how its done!

UPDATING TO LATEST AND UPDATING TO ADD SYSTEMS
You may need to set up your controller in each emulator, do this by going to the main Android menu and opening the emulators from within and setting up your controller there.
