My main intentions were to reduce amount of threads about this popular device which pops up everyday on Dingoonity and make something like forum FAQ. Glad if someone finds it useful. Next update will be around 23 Feb., if I will have enough free time on that weekend.

If some kind soul with passion for S7300 would have enough time and eagerness to create similar threads guide about previous JXD device, this will be great...

Thought I'd say hi, as a new JXS 7800 owner. Just to say this thread has been extremely handy for a newbie like myself.

Although I have had several Android devices and have been into emulation for many years, it's still a handy thread which compiles, quite a few topics newbies to the device will be interest in.
