I'm sorry I know that this is a little late, but can someone explain the relevance of having a capacitive touch screen when most of you guys are using these handheld for emulation ? I mean I understand you may have other uses for these devices but what do you actually need the capacitive screen for ? I have jxd s601 & I hardly use the touch screen unless I'm playing games for the Playstore or web browsing.
True a touchscreen is not needed for most emulators and a lot of the play store games but some emulators such as the n64 and psx would benefit from having a few of the controls mapped to key presses on the touchscreen when there are not enough physical buttons. A capacitive screen would be much better than a resistive screen in this instance
Yeah capacitive WOULD be better IF you had not enough physical or none, but let me tell you that I ordered one of these SPECIFICALLY because it had so many physical keys and gamepads.  It's a real PITA to game/use emulators when you have NO physical keys at all or very few(like my phone & tablets).  The only decent way to play is by using a bluetooth controller or something similar but is just another thing to carry around and are usually bulky enough to be annoying.

I played around a little with it last night, tried the default n64 emulator which conveniently had a few ROMs loaded. Mario 64 seemed to play OK but I was never really a big fan of that game.  To me it was mostly pretty 3D gfx demo at the time.

I got my s5110 quickly, but the 2 8GB uSDs that I ordered have yet to arrive and I couldn't find another uSD kicking around not in use yesterday, so now I'm deciding who's going to lose their uSD until those get here...

[EDIT]
heh, and right after I wrote this the mail showed up and my uSDs were in the mailbox... :D

So what emulators come pre-loaded?  Are there much better options available out there other than the stock emus?

The .emu series (md.emu, nes.emu, etc) are great

nes4droid 1.6.8, gens4droid 2.8, N64droid 1.1, GameBoid 2.4.9, Mame4droid 1.3

This was done just by checking via apps in the settings menu.

Better options?  Dunno as prior buying this I was using my Dingoo A320 for emulating most of these, and never really cared about N64 as there just never were that many decent games for the N64 and practically zero RPGs.

On my android devices I was really only interested in PSX emu as they were the only portable(and smaller than a note/netbook) items that I owned that were capable of PSX emu, and the best IS: fpse. [EDIT] fpse is a paid app in the appstore, and they recently enabled opengl accel unfortunately the MALI-400 is the problem child GPU of the current embedded crop... [/EDIT]

I highly recommend all the .emu Apps to you. They are well worth the money and the best you can get. In addition to them google for SNES9X EX from the same developer, which is not available through play, but free on the website. Last but not least Mame4droid, if you're into arcade that is ;)

To those wondering what kind of screen is in the JXD S5110, I think it might be a piezoelectric touchscreen. Refer to the wiki article below. It is highly unlikely that they would use a resistive touchscreen with multitouch circuitry as those are very expensive. Piezoelectric touchscreens are cheaper than multitouch resistive's.

I am also awaiting the arrival of my S5110

ashwin1234, something similar to the smartq t10, one of the few devices that use this technology.

Well, the Overclocked Kernels (or normal clock) for the Android 2.3 firm of s5110 are ready. I've made kernels from 800 to 1,2 ghz (1,2 probably will be unstable). Remember that in order to use them you have to be in Android 2.3 firmware.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/69559458/OC_s5110And23.zip

Just extract the zip and copy to the root of your SDCARD one of the update_signed files according to your desired speed (for instance, update_signed800 for 800 mhz). Boot the console into recovery by pressing power + menu, and select apply:sdcard, choose the update_signed file and reboot once installation finishes. I donít know how stable they are, so USE IT AT YOUR RISK.

I don't have this console (and probablt won't have it I'm afraid) so thanks a lot to qbertaddict and Deen0X for the testing.

Abhoriel, I don't see a great difference from the jxd s601 apart from screen, so maybe I save my money for the future devices (that there will be some new, I guess) Also, I spent more time developing for these consoles than playing, hehe. And I'm still "fighting" with the ICS beta firm for s601 and trying to figure out how the system is locked at 600 mhz.

Something that irritates me is the internal flash is mapped to SD card. Is there something I can do to make the external sd mount as the sd card like the JXD s601? The internal memory will fill up fast after Gameloft and other apps fill up the very limited 4 gb

Maybe changing the mounting points in kernel, but I'm not sure. I think that using Android 2.3 firm in this machine sdcard is the same than in s601, but not sure.

I think you're right actully :)
oh gosh, I completely forgot about ICS. I'll have a look at it too :) I'm sure its fixable

It should be fixable. What it is strange is that both s601 and s5110 use the f02ref board, but their ICS firms are built using f04ref ones. Maybe this is the failure but I don't know (system says 1 ghz but performance is 600). If you find something let me know. It would be nice an Skelrom for ICS.

It reminds of the problem of overclocking kernels above 1GHz on the JXD s601. it says that its clocking faster, but the actual speed is the same. it could be the same problem here. I never really bothered trying to fix it because I considered >1GHz speeds to be a bit excessive, but I'll look into it
