There are two ways you can enable or disable analog joysticks:
Press and hold the “START” button for 15 seconds and reboot. This method only works with Analog Joystick 1. You need Method 2 if you want to enable or disable Analog Joystick 2.
With the builtin usb serial communication of the tinkerBOY Controller v3.0 you can easily enable or disable Analog Joysticks through software. In order to do that, you need install the minicom program by following the instruction at tinkerBOY Controller v3.0: Settings or proceed if you’re using my pre-built RetroPie image.
Start minicom by typing
sudo minicom. Start by checking the current status of the Analog Joysticks by pressing ‘a’.
Here’s how to enable or disable one or both analog joyticks:
- Press 1 to enable or disable Analog Joystick 1.
- Press 2 to enable or disable Analog Joystick 2.
That’s it. 🙂

if i want to use this in retrorangepi, it will work?
Do you mean my v3 board on a orange Pi? Yes it should work.
How do I save and exit the session?
The first method doesn’t work for. How can i connect the Tinkerboy v3.0.1 to my PC to configure the left joystick ? Thank you.
How about method 2?
I download the prebuilt image and used the sudo minicom to enable the joystick but still not working. Am i missing something?
