RetroArch v0.9.9 has officially been rolled out on all platform targets.

The new platforms that are supported with this release of RetroArch are as follows:

  • iOS (both jailbroken and non-jailbroken – non-jailbroken requires that you are a registered developer and can compile your own copy of RetroArch + cores)
  • Blackberry 10
  • Blackberry Playbook Tablet OS

The other platforms which are already supported by the RetroArch/libretro projects have all received updates (with some pretty extensive changes – more on that in an upcoming blog post).


Windows: New users can download 32- and 64-bit flavors of RetroArch and RetroArch-Phoenix from Themaister’s site:

Existing users can/should download the new version through RetroArch-Phoenix’s built-in ‘RetroArch Updater’ utility. (this is the preferred update method for existing users to save massive bandwidth!)

Mac OS X users can download hunterk’s builds from this post on the libretro forum:

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint users can add hunterk’s Launchpad PPA repository to their Synaptic/apt sources:

iOS users can find RetroArch iOS in one of Cydia’s default repositories – ZodTTD & MacCiti.

You can also add our own Cydia repository in order to get it, located at:

Most cores will work with both tethered and untethered jailbreaks, but cores that require the use of a dynamic recompiler (dynarec; DeSmuME and PCSX-ReARMed) will require a full, untethered jailbreak to function.

Android users can get the latest version from the Google Play Store. Xperia play controls seem to be wonky, but we hope to have that fixed very soon.

Wii users should use this package:

Blackberry Playbook users should use this package:

Blackberry 10 users should use this package:

PS3 users can get the DEX and CEX versions from the usual sources.

Xbox1 and Xbox360 users can get their respective versions from the usual sources.

OpenPandora users can get builds from lifning’s repo:

  2. Fantastic work but one thing that was bugging me is that you dont advertise this as multicore emulator of many consoles, i wasnt sure what it is until i ran it myself on my phone, you should state it more clear what it is in the beginning so more people would try it because i almost closed this website without trying it, i thought its just some libraary info about old games with names/dates etc, anyway MAME performance is nice on galaxy s i9000, i tried other old mame4droid that had mk1 playable with full speed, maybe you guys could chat about performance boost cause your port is a bit slower than his (old one of course cause his new mame4droid reloaded one is with 0.139 romset which is slower on my phone but still ok ) also ps1 performance is fantastic! Ps1 emulation alone is best on android, its very underrated software, big thanks for your work ! Ah one thing… when you rescale overlay gamepad to make it bigger then i think it should not go offscreen but instead it should try to stay onscreen but buttons should get bigger cause its not really useful if half of the dpad is offscreen and it cant press it, some buttons are too small, i think ps1 gamepad is quite ok but buttons placement xyab isnt always as nice for some games, own button placement would be nice..
