There are many Android TV boxes that are capable of running EmuELEC, an excellent retro gaming-centered operating system. Popular options are the “Super Console X” line of devices, which come pre-loaded with a bunch of games and a couple cheap controllers.

While these boxes are a great option for people who aren’t interested in setting up their own retro gaming console, they do have some shortcomings: they use unreliable SD cards that will fail on you eventually, the bundled controllers are laughably bad, and the game library they load onto the card is often poorly organized. In this guide we’re going to walk you through how to make your own “Super Console X King” from scratch, for the same price (or cheaper) as the pre-loaded box, but with superior materials and your own curated game library.
