You know Skelton, every forum is full of leechers and dingoonity is no exception. Most likely these 70 persons downloaded your excellent firmware and installed it with no issues. Unfortunately none of them felt like coming here and properly thanks for this rom, but you know, we all are truly grateful everytime there's a new topic at this section that starts with "[ROM] LegacyROM". :)

So true.
Thank you so much for all the help you give to this community skelton. :)
I also follow a few spanish forums, and I always read your helpfull comments. (I'm from Portugal and, for me, it has always been easy to understand spanish. Although I can't write in spanish very well). ;)

Just wanted to say thanks for the ROM. Good to get rid of some of the bloat included in the standard ROM.

All works well although I get tearing after a period of time on videos, particularly on Youtube. Not a major issue as the tablet wasn't bought for that purpose but I thought it was worth raising.

Thanks again.

Hi, hope someone can help me. I just instal the LegacyROM for my GPD G58. I friend of mine recomend me to do this. But since then, the touchscreen dons'nt respond anymore. Anybody else ever had the same problem?

Sorry for my english by the way.

Could it be your device is some kind of clone or GPD has changed screen. Try reinstalling stock firmware:

Then the only thing that comes to my mind is that GPD has changed screen in a new batch or something, but I don't have source code for the new screen, so I cannot make a new kernel compatible with it.

A GPD developer contacted me and told me that new manufactured g58 comes with a different touchscreen controller. I have requested source code for that new screen (or at least that they tell me what screen is), so I will try to compile a new kernel or a new version of the rom for those having these new batches. I cannot promise when though, because my current free time is very limited.

Here it is. I have changed kernel so now rom should be compatible with all devices, including new batch devices:

If anyone having touchscreen issues let me know if this works, because I don't have my g58 at the moment, so couldn't test myself.

Thank you Skelton!
The Rom works like a charm.

Just a quick question, are there overclock patches for G58's with the new screen? I tried the old OC patch and my TouchScreen didn't work anymore (which is not surprising in hindsight ^^)

Is the rom working with the new touchscreen? Because if the answer is yes, the OC patch should work too, because the only difference is CPU Speed. Have in mind this is the rom for g58. Could it be your device is a G5A? I don't have parameters for new screen of g58, so I cannot make a new kernel for g58 new screen.

g58 is the less overclockable GPD device, so perhaps your device doesn't handle the overclock and it doesn't boot for that reason.

I am using this Rom on a G58 which i bought a few weeks ago and it works perfect. Then i tried the OC Patch from the original post, and that caused my touchscreen to stop functioning. I was thinking that the OC Kernel patch was for the touchscreen of the older batch of G58s, but i don't know anything about this stuff, so i might as well be completely wrong :D.

Oh I see, probably I forgot to make a new OC kernel for new batch. Yeah, the old OC kernel won't work because it's different screen and for the old batch. I am on vacation right now, so I cannot make a new kernel. You'll have to wait until I can make an OC kernel for the new batch.
