Welcome to Retrode Utility.

Retrode Utility is a handy program that allows you to edit your Retrode's configuration file and install new firmware versions without having to mess around with strange text editors or the command line.


To build from source:



Retrode Utility uses the great DFU-Programmer which is available over at Sourceforge (here). Also @jerrykrinock's code on NSString geometrics saved a lot of my time. Thanks to Matthias Hullin for making such a great device.
