Shoot me any questions you have. Sorry I'm so bad at finishing projects. It's why I only have two portables to show for the past 9 years.Any updates on this? Because I'm currently buying a bunch of parts to make my own DSPi and want to see what kind of decisions you have done in order to make this work. Perhaps we could help each other?

Mostly just a few more pictures...
The screw posts that I epoxied in our mostly dried, so I fully assembled the top half of the project. I'm running the wires through the hinge on the right side, as you can see. The wires are... 5v, gnd, shielded composite, and the button signal. In order to make the screen controls operational again I need to ground the button wire through 3 different resistors as was originally done on the screen driver board.
That being said it appears that I left the screen in 4:3 mode so I can't demo widescreen until I rewire the buttons. But man am I happy with the size of the screen. It's amazing how close it was to not working out.
Things I still need to do:
Wire up all 3ds buttons and slider to teensy, and get it coded to work with the pi
Wire up internal wifi module (maybe?)
Mount USB ports (1 or 2?) and charging to the side of the case
Figure out a way to easily interchange micro sd cards (only thing that has me stumped at the moment)
To be clear, these are two separate concepts. You either multiboot with the BerryBoot bootloader, or go the Raspbian route.Meh, just use BerryBoot, as it allows you to keep multiple OS's on the same card and boot from them individually.
Also, you can build RetroPie on top of full Raspbian and then also install Kodi in RetroPie. This would seem to accomplish your goals as well.
You are completely correct. Thanks for clarifying this.To be clear, these are two separate concepts. You either multiboot with the BerryBoot bootloader, or go the Raspbian route.
To further clarify, Kodi isn't installed "in RetroPie," per se, but on the base Raspbian and can be launched through the emulationstation frontend that RetroPie provides.
I actually forgot about berryboot and to be fair I think that's the most elegant solution.
