  8. Will the Nintendo Gameboy Color No Intro Rom Set work on the firestick?. I've added the sets you demo'ed but am looking to ad a few more specific games. (Specifically Crash Bandicoot)

  9. There is no need for the USB stick. Just install ES File explorer
    Go to NETWORK – REMOTE MANAGER, Turn it on. Enter the address in the address field of a folder on your pc and the Firestick will show up like a folder wirelessly on your computer and you can transfer all you need directly to it.
