Added a Miyoo Mini Information Page

  I decided to add a permanent Miyoo Mini information page to collect all the important information, links to setup guides, etc. All in one place.  https://www.retrokezins.com/p/miyoo-mini-v1v2-guides-info.html If there's any links you think should be added to this work in progress, feel free to comment below! The Miyoo Mini has quickly become my favorite sub $60 retro handheld option. 

My Miyoo Mini V2 Arrived (Blue)

Miyoo Mini V2 FTW w/ Photos  Finally got my hands on the 2nd version of the Miyoo Mini today. Arriving in a Miyoo branded case was a nice touch although I do like to have boxes. Can't do unboxing photos so guess this will be uncasing photos.  Included is the case which is a pretty decent and protective one,  the V2 Miyoo Mini, 32GB microSD card (w/Firmware etc on it), small USB-C cable, manual and a USB card reader. I wouldn't suggest using that card reader unless it's your only option. Same goes for the included card.  I plan to install a fresh MinUI custom Firmware (CFW) on my own card and get started on testing this one out so I can post a review by the weekend. I'll be following the guide from Retro Game Corps like I do with most handhelds.  https://retrogamecorps.com/2022/05/15/miyoo-mini-v2-guide/  After that,  I'm just waiting on some face buttons from SakuraRetroModding to give it a more custom look.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/SakuraRetroModding I purchased

Miyoo Mini Custom Buttons on Etsy

 SakuraRetroModding has put an assortment of custom face buttons and shell stickers up for pre-order on Etsy. I've never been disappointed with a purchase from SRM.  I have a blue V2 Miyoo Mini on the way and opted for "Pink Clear" face buttons which should be a pretty cool contrast of colors. Can't wait to receive the Mini V2 and buttons to customize it.   Look what I found on Etsy:   https://www.etsy.com/listing/1222104456/pre-order-shipped-the-6-june-4-buttons

Ordered A V2 Miyoo Mini

  I went ahead and ordered a V2 Miyoo Mini in blue this time. It looks a lot better than the toothpaste white V1 version I'm using now.  The V2 has a better screen,  improved d-pad/face button action and slightly better battery Performance, so it was hard to say no. Hopefully I receive it within 3-4 weeks so I can let you know.  I feel like the V2 still at the sub $60 pricepoint with a few slight improvements paired with the much improved OnionOS CFW will likely bump things up to a 9/10 type Score from me. https://www.retrokezins.com/2021/12/miyoo-mini-review-micro-retro-game.html
