New release (v4):
https://we.tl/QZVjd1QWe8

Now suspend works. I haven't tested battery life, perhaps suspend is useless at the moment.
Please note that wifi is killed by suspend, so you'll need to reboot after suspend to get wifi back.
I had to disable DDR frequency scaling, I'm a bit afraid of the results, both in performance and battery life...

I also have a GPD Q9. I think porting should be easy.
Are there some people interested in its support?

I know there's no mapping tool but what about the gamepad app that selects the ps3 driver or xbox? thanks for you hard work btw  8)

Erm sorry, but green means it doesn't suspend. The LED should be off when in suspned

Erm, works for me

- SD card still comes up with error - doesn't read it right - It was a 128gb Fat32 MicroSD card that didnt work. My 2gb MicroSD Fat32 works fine. Don't know if that helps.
That might help indeed, I'll check that, thanks.

Nope, ps3/xbox was done in driver, and it's a brand new driver, so the app won't be compatible.

I would. I have a q9 and would love to see this.
Ok, I'll see what I can do. (Though I'll do not as many releases, it's too annoying to build both)

The gms file you had posted, I tried installing it but it gave a bunch of "Command not found".
It requires to have adb installed system-wide (apt install adb)

This looks cool.
Have you tested it?
What's their pricing model? I can't see any price anywhere
Or they are getting money from Amazon/Paperspace when you rent a computer there?

Edit: Ah... they only support Windows as a host... Not for me then

After you stabilize the build more, are you planning on clocking the cpu at 1.8GHz. It says its currently running at 1.6GHz. Or maybe have a second release?

Good Question, like to see a releae with google play built in and root  8)

O_O Didn't know about Parsec. I've just connected a GPD Win to my PC and it works great!!! I'll try it in a Rpi3 this weekend

Do you know if Android client has any kind of virtual controler? I've tried it in a mobile but I cannot see any option.

It would be awesome to run it in our GPD XD!!!

I completely understand. It's not really worth creating a build just for two people. Even more so, if it does not have google play in the custom rom it would not be of a lot of use to me either. I would appreciate anything you can do and thank you in general for trying :)

The Programm itself is Free. You can either rent a Cloud PC from Somewhere over the Parsec Marketplace http://parsec.tv/add-computer/rent or download the Software and install it on your PC to Act as a Host.
The Dev said on Discord that they gonna support Linux as a Host in a few Weeks from Today

Didn't find any myself. The Android Client is pretty much a Alpha right now and the Devs said that they gonna improve it very soon.

You can Vote on Android 4.4 Support if you want: https://parsec.canny.io/feedback/p/android-44-support-gpd-devices
There you can also create a feature Request for the Onscreen Gamepad if you want.

Can someone explain me what I need to flash this? I'm on LegacyROM now and I want to try this out and help by providing feedback. But I can't seem to find which program I need to use to flash the v4 image. Thanks!

I'm interested in this, PPPSSPP now supports Vulkan so Vulkan support is always welcome.

Has anyone tried it out with PPSSPP yet?

Also replying to see if this project is still alive. Now that we have Vulkan support, I'm hoping Battlefront II (PSP) will run a little smoother in ppsspp.

So, i installed Android 7.1 last night. Wasn't a big fan.

- Many apps are missing from the install such as GAMEPAD APP for ps3/xbox automatic configuration or the google play store.
- Barebones ROM in general; no wallpapers/interface has drastically changed from what most users are used to/doesnt really improve emulation speed either.
- I don't even think it improves standard ghz the XD comes with; 1.6 or 1.8 options are not there.
- MicroSD card is NOT recognized at all. I tried various methods for it to be read, no success.
- Most links for the ROM itself don't exist anymore... i had to research for Psyops links in order to download it in the first place.
- Had difficulty being able to mount the OS to windows 10 initially. Once a certain driver is installed & switching to debugging mode/MTP connection... I was FINALLY able to mount it to windows 10 in Explorer to transfer files.

The ROM works but needs a lot of further development. Also, since rockchip is 32bit, I doubt the latest 7.1 nougat can take advantage of the specs of the XD. If further development is made, I'm for it... but as it stands now, I do NOT recommend it for most users.

I'm changing back to LegacyROM when I get a chance & reset all my apps/settings back to the way they were.

Thank you for the review, I was planning to test latest version, I want to use MAME core (Retroarch) with latest version (which doesnt work on KitKat) and Vulkan (PPSSPP), but I need a full-working OS... Thanks for your time testing it ;)

And thanks to the people behind porting this Android version, maybe one day we all can update our XDs with all we have now on KitKat! :D
