I had RetroPie installed from source some months ago. It took a long time to compile but it worked and I wanted to update the emulators and such to the latest versions. I did something wrong because it didn’t work. So I downloaded the premade SD Card image that was posted here and it works great. However, I still want to know if it’s possible to update RetroPie (the emulators, RetroArch itself and EmulationStation, etc) and if so, how do I do it?
Because apparently the binaries from the SD Card image are from April.resentedpoetParticipant07/09/2013 at 13:30Post count: 16
did you remember to update the retropie setup script first? In order to update RetroPie, you first update the setup script, then update the binaries.petrockblogKeymaster07/10/2013 at 06:52Post count: 1828
Alternatively to what resentedpoet said, you could run the Setup Script and use the “source-based installation” to update individual components. Depending on the selected components this could take some time, though.petrockblogKeymaster07/11/2013 at 07:19Post count: 1828
I just added an option to the RetroPie Script for updating the binaries of an existing installation, see https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/How-to-Update-an-Existing-RetroPie-Installation.jcx1028Participant07/13/2013 at 15:10Post count: 10
Here’s a potentially dumb question… How do I get to the main menu of the RetroPie Setup Script in order to update the binaries?resentedpoetParticipant07/13/2013 at 22:00Post count: 16jcx1028Participant07/13/2013 at 22:02Post count: 10

Nevermind, it works. It didn’t update the setup script properly. Thank you. :)deaftolightParticipant07/25/2014 at 03:24Post count: 42
If you install from source and then choose update binaries, will that overwrite your install from source, and downgrade any emulators if the source was newer at the time of install?
