Ppsspp, dc and uoyabause run a bit better with overclock. But don't expect that all psp or saturn games run perfecto, because even in my shield tablet some psp games run a bit slow. Performance gobernor is a must for uoyabause. Some games run good in terms of speed. I have played virtua fighter remix, panzer dragoon zwei or guardián héroes and they run fine.using performance and 1,8 ghz kernel. For uoyabause the rk3288 is not enough anyway, only some games will be playable. Mali drivers are terrible too and most games have graphical glitches that they don't in other devices with other GPUs like powervr, intel or tegra according to my tests.
Okay thanks for your feedback.

This looks awesome!

Is there anyway of flashing the rom via OSX or Linux?

Also, if you see method 2 described in my frst post you can install the firm from the GPD itself.

Thanks for that. I was hesitant to try method 2 but it seemed to have done the job. Thanks for your swift response!

Wow! Thanks a lot, this seems nice.

I don't think GPD improves pretty much the kitkat firmware since we are working in a Android M update, so consider this the final Kitkat firmware

This means for the XD? So the plan is to skip Lollipop and get an Android Marshmallow update for the GPD XD?

there is a marshmellow rom coming? awesome desu, any idea when we wil be able to eat it?

also, I don't have a smartphone or anyhting, so never used anything newer then kitkat. Would it be worth it to install a 6.0 update, given that all the game data and such would be gone from the device (including *SHOCK HORROR* all the save games)??

@skelton  thanks for your efforts, man. I'll put this on my device later today and it's absolutely cool that you decided to finally sort the OC kernel out for the community.

Also, wasn;t aware that you've been struggling with your health man... hope you recover soon :)

cheers

The idea is for next month (about may) , I am not so optimistic because there are some things in the android M RK SDK that must be fixed before  a stable release. Most probably will imply a full erase, but you can save your game data with titaniumbackup or similar app.
I wouldn't expect huge changes in Marshmallow. I use it in my shield tablet and there are no big differences for playing games in a 32 bit device.

You mean it might be unstable? Yack! Albeit GPD firmware is usually always very good so far... but thanks for the warning, I will probably keep using the kitkat one then!

It's unstable now, but won't be unstable when they release it. That's why it's not available yet and GPD need some time to release it and fix the minor bugs, together with Rockchip.. I will be helping GPD in what I can (not much lately, unfortunately), but ithe update will not be released unless is completely stable.

I haven't installed it with method 2, but some peo`ple has done it and in theory nothing should be erase.
