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?

The gms file you had posted, I tried installing it but it gave a bunch of "Command not found".

Hm i suspect this has to do with classpath doesnt it?

Anything in particular that you would like tested in this new version?

That's amazing and i hope you will keep working on it, phh. You probably noticed that the XD development is gone, and since GPD had the terrible idea of releasing a new XD with a new soc this will probably be the only chance for the original XD users for having a new Android version. Also thanks PsyOps for the help you're giving to him.
Well, it's not that GPD had that idea. they are forced to do it, because RK3288 will be out of stock. So current XD was going to end manufacturing anyway. New model will be called XDS and will use an hexa core MTK, the same that comes with xiaomi mi pad 3. They have a proto ready to test.

DAMN. I just KNEW they were going to release a new GPD XD right after I finally bought one. Uuuuuuugh.

I will take the app from stock/legacy and just install on 7.1 and see if that works

v04:
+ I noticed the power light is now green and not a shady orange color, im guessing something is working better now
- Google Play does not work, it keeps crashing and wont connect. Doesnt work properly, crashes a bunch.
- 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.
- GPD turns on when you try to charge it with usb. Tried turning it off while it was plugged in and it just reboots.
- Wifi started acting up. Was off, tried to turn on, and it would crash/reboot android. After a few reboots it was working again.




** I updated post #3 with mirror site to version 04 **

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

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?

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.
