Hey guys, I don't know if you've done that yet, but wouldn't it be better if the instructions and its updates of this custom ROM for the JXD s601 were in a fixed post on the first page in this topic (or in another topic created by SNESFAN). I'm saying this because it's a little difficult to read almost 80 pages to find out what to do xD.

I'm bringing a lot of the important stuff I'm seeing to my forum, it's a bit more broken down if you havn't been following this thread every day

http://forum.openhandhelds.net/index.php?board=71.0

http://forum.openhandhelds.net/index.php#c13

feel free to update as needed

EDIT: do you need/want a guide on how to update the firmware etc? Let me know what you're after I'll try to explain it the best I can

I have a question....

People seem to be mixing and matching different frequency kernels and firmware (ie: 800mhz kernel with 600mhz firmware or whatever.)

What are the implications of this? (if any?)

Yeah people with the know how could advise..

What I think is the newer kernels have the frequency of the new 800Mhz firmware so i dont think it matters  ;)

i did it because I didn't want to install all again. It seems that new firm only changes in the kernel from the previous one. Mine is with kernel from this last firm but with the previous firm, and works perfect.

Do you or anyone else have problems booting after flashing - I done 900Mhz and once it boots its fine,
I just tried 1Ghz black screen again but I'm goner give it a while before switching on again... cool it in the fridge
First lol.. seems to do the trick after flashing it... but maybe its just not meant to be for me I used the older Firmware anyway... maybe I could make a heatsink mod or something but atleast I can run @ 900Mhz  ;)

Forgot to ask if you can patch from 600 to 900 then from 900 to 1000Mhz or do you have to patch the original each time?

You can patch the kernel you want. There's no need to change to the original kernel to patch a new one.

I don't know, mine works great at 1 ghz. But there's no much difference between 900 and 1 ghz, maybe you can ask kashlekin to make a 950 kernel.

Well once I`m booted I can play with the frequency in setCPU,  I used Quadrent Stantard to check it was all correct

Full benchmark test scored higher then samsung galaxy tab lol score =2475  ;)

cortex a9 is a beast... even a shitty made a9 will beat a well built a8 cycle for cycle

main reason I stood behind this from the get go... besides the price of course ;)

Wow! I've just upgraded firmware and my console runs at 800 MHz stable.
Old kernel patched with abhoriel's method worked stable at 725 MHz only.
I'll try to patch kernel from new firmware to higher frequences and test it when I have time.

My JXD S601 doesn´t run stable at 800Mhz (using the new 800Mhz firmware), also I encountered some freezes during large gameplays at 750Mhz.

Anyone can put a 700Mhz and 725Mhz kernel download links?

I am not linux user, I can´t create my owns patched kernels using abhoriel method.

ĄThanks in advance!

If you go backwards in this thread there's a 725Mhz post I think
