I will help when I can, but for the most part I will be flashing and playing with it for a bit before I flash back into my backups for my own projects. But I will try to help where I can.

You will have to go to settings to change how it connects with usb to transfer files. Just tap build number 5 times under "About Tablet" to open developer settings. The usb thing is under there somewhere.

Things that don't work:
- Audio
- power button in Android
- Suspend
- No Gamepad mapping tool

Looking for a way around it

I've noticed the instability as well.
It appeared when I enabled WiFi driver, so that sounds like it will be very annoying to track.

For GMS, I've taken opengapps, and added a script:
https://we.tl/yzZZ2mKb27
Run install.sh from the extracted folder (sorry that will work only from Linux)
You'll need to factory reset from the settings after installing it.

What I'm interested in:
- If you are able to reproduce reliably the reboot, tell me how
- If you see bugs, well, tell
- In the list of things that are not working, what would be the highest priority to fix?
- Why is Android 7 useful for you? I'm especially curious about actual usages of Vulkan. The demos are nice, but that's not of any use... I tried running The Talos Principle, which runs Vulkan, but it requires S3TC, which the Mali doesn't have :(
- I can't force anyone, but I'd love to see people doing custom ROMs based on this one, so I don't have to care about Google apps, emulators, gamepad mapping, ...

Well I'd say the biggest advantage of Android 7 on the XD would be... Android 7 on the XD. Vulkan and a Lot of the other New features are great and all but the biggest issue with being stuck on 4.4.4 is compatibility. More and more Android devs compile their apps for higher API levels and are slowly abandoning kitkat. Having a basic AOSP Android 7.1 would mean expanding the GPD XD's lifetime and usefulness by a fair margin. With skelton retired and GPD abandoning the device for a New revision with a different SoC, the future of the RK3288 XD looks a bit dire. Also I am sure that the community would customize a working version for gaming purposes.

What CommanderKitler said, plus I would love to try romflix frontend because that only works on Android 5 and above :(

Trying to get TWRP or root to work, no luck so far

BTW:
Oma made TWRP 3.1.1.0 for nougat: http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?wpfb_dl=3137

There are still some graphical glitches with this one but no where near as bad as the old twrp
Anyway TWRP won't detect anything, even though I thought this rom was in ext4

I tried rooting to use flashfire, but we can't use a flashable solution. Unpacking/repacking system.img causes a boot loop, no pc root solutions also never works.
One thing I will try is to mount system.img in ubuntu and try to root it that way

Edit: boot.img solution also doesn't work with magisk

FWIW the firmware is already rooted, you just need to call adb root
So with adb remount, you should be able to install a SU in /system
