Any offers? I have decided to stick with Windows for my emulation needs.

Did ROM making not work out? How much are you thinking you're looking for anyway?

I just do not have the time. LineageOS will support it in the future. Currently only the GL drivers need updating. I just do not have time for it. I am accepting offers for it. Just PM me guys. I need to sell this. I have too many of these things.

Main reason I am selling is my revelation of Windows being superior to Android in every way.

My advice is, if @AVahne or anyone else for that matter wants to buy it from you...DO NOT! And I stress, DO NOT sell it to anyone for less than US$500.

You have a rare thing right there, so don't be like me and lose out ($_$), like I always do when selling stuff.

Getting it working with all 4 cores was not easy, and rooting it was not a cakewalk either. I just want to fund my next project. I am making a portable type of touchscreen HDMI monitor that can be used with many devices for traveling. We will see what people offer. I am not in a hurry to sell it anyways.

I thought you rooted it using Towelroot, which worked like a charm? First go!

I had to do it many times and use ADB to allow access. Not fun. It is good now though

Man I kind of hope this does not sell... Still I rather it be put to use... The device is really neat but the JXD S7800B 16:10 IPS screen and controls just feel better when playing PCE and Sega stuff man. The Shield's design makes it feel "distant"

I have been stressing trying to find a X1 laptop or X1 portable proto and the truth is... The X1 is not that great... My Asus 13" laptop's i7 Dualcore 5500U and Intel HD 5500/Nvidia 940M kills it... I really thought a X1 10"tablet would be so great... I just am so picky about this stuff... Give me larger screens and more power VS the X1 in any config. I am trying to make a telescopic gamepad + HDMI usb powered monitor with 10.1 screen size that can run any HDMI android mini pc and intel NUC units. That is about as awesome as it gets in car when on a trip.

That controller has bad deadzones friend. The tablet is also known to throttle... The Win2 will beat it by quite a bit in gaming. I have considered that though... My idea is to have only a HDMI monitor and have full control of the scaling and color saturation/sharpness/contrast/HDR option + have capactive 10 points touch on it. 10.1 size. Then you can just buy lots of mini pcs to hook it to in the car. RK3288 HDMI sticks etc. Windows z8700 HDMI sticks, Intel NUC units, Raspberry Pi 3 units... You could just have any platform in portable fashion. I bought the newer IPEGA tele controller and a white generic one that looked interesting.

- I like the look of that white telescopic GamePad but it looks to be an unknown brand and can't be trusted.

- I have one of these 9083s now, love it <3

- Yeah, looks cool, it certainly does look like the Nintendo Switch screen


- The rest of the monitors/screens you linked look shit and will probably break quickly

Not so sure, they are made of metal/aluminum and quite well built. They have full OSD menu like a TV/monitor too. The options and tweaking would be great for a portable system with 10.1 screen... I am sick of 5" and 6" screens... If I suceed I will be selling most of my handhelds minus the pocketable ones.

Yeah, same here. I'm fucking sick of screens sizes 6 inch or below. I still game on the train with my 12 inch!!

Also, guess not...just hang onto it or store it somewhere deep in your closet?

haha, yeah man. The K1 is nice. It really is faster than the Tegra 4. I just have to move away from the small screen handhelds... They have to be pocketable if small... Makes no sense for a Shield to be "portable" when it's not.

How much are you selling it for?
