I suffered that issue using the offcial firmware that came with my device, but only happened from time to time and autofixed after a reboot. I currently use legacy and didn't happen no more, so perhaps is a common issue in all devices that occurs under certain circumstance.

[ROM] LegacyROM Kitkat for GPD XD
« Reply #901 on: September 23, 2017, 12:51:17 pm »
But that system process is in all Android firmware. Stock rom must have it Too. Also, as i said, It seems only happens to a few people ramdomly, so i don't think it's a firmware problem. Or It is in stock Too and happens ramdomly, but i never suffered that issue.
Sorry, I was wrong it's not keyguardTestActivity...
Trying to disable autostart's services to find solve of the problem. I hate that issue!

Hey there! Just installed Legacyrom the other day and it certainly is better than the standard stuff that comes with the GPD XD! I'm having a few problems though.

It seems that I can't "currently running" screen accessed by hitting the menu button with the controller? Is it supposed to be like this? The screen I get by holding the menu button down also cannot be controlled via buttons either. It makes closing out of apps really difficult when playing through HDMI. Is this a Launcher3 issue?

Speaking of Launcher 3, I seem to have some weirdness controlling the home menu with the controller as well. I can't seem to get it to select the "all apps" button which can be frustrating. Are these just niggling issues present in LegacyROM or do I need to fix something?

Last one: Retroarch is keeping my GPD awake. I have no idea why. Even when I hit the lock button, the sound from which ever game I have loaded in Retroarch keeps playing and the game keeps running! Same for if I close my GPD. No other emulator does this. Is there something I'm missing in Retroarch to fix this? I've Googled it a ton, but no results.

EDIT: Weird. I just had MyBoy do the sleep mode thing to me as well although I now can't seem to replicate it. I don't think it's a hardware issue as the screen DOES shut off when I put it to sleep and seemingly goes to sleep whenever I close it without Retroarch open.

Maybe is a launcher3 issue, I use the launcher3 from stock rom, so the behaviour should be the same as stock rom. I never used launcher3.

Buttons and keys are similar to stock rom.

About retroarch avoiding sleep, maybe is something with new retroarch, I never had those issues when I had my XD. Sleep mode is the same as stock rom too, so it should behave the same.

Thanks for the response! Any suggestions then? I'm planning to use another launcher instead of launcher3, but it appears that they still use the same "Running Apps" screen? Is there something that I can change to fix this since my device is now rooted? I don't have any experience with rooted devices personally so I'm not sure what's possible.

On Retroarch: Damn. Was really hoping you might have the answer. I guess the quest continues to figure out what the hell it's doing. If anyone else has any suggestions, I'll gladly listen.

Well there are just some things that don't work with gamepad I think. There are shortcuts you can setup that pull down notification and status bar. You can't select with gamepad on that either. I am going to maybe install : https://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/modules/mod-xposed-additions-t2294274 and see if that works or maybe look for more alternatives. Someone once commented about not wanting to touch the screen and control everything with gamepad, which I thought would be nice but never really considered the hmdi connection thing. Ith would be annoying to have to reach over to gpd every time you have to do whatever.

Let's see if we can find a solution hehe.
Yes, exactly. Or in my case get up off the couch and walk over to the TV to touch the screen lol. I'm coming from my Nvidia Shield portable too where literally everything can be controlled with the gamepad and for what can't, you can use one of the analogue sticks as a mouse.

I want to keep poking around, because it it's possible there, it has to be possible here.

Tried a few different versions of Retroarch to see if I could fix my sleep mode problem, but it still persists? Even the builds dating back to early 2016 do the same thing.

Should I reinstall Legacyrom? Has anyone else run into the issue of Retroarch refusing to go to sleep?

EDIT: I seem to have discovered that Retroarch WILL go to sleep as long as the lock screen is enabled? Wtf? Does that clue anybody into what's happening here? I could just use a lock screen, but they require the touch screen and also they just don't really make sense for a device like this. Is there a way to "lock" my phone without a lock screen?

Thanks for the reply! I too decided to opt for the lock-screen and to press select. I actually think I'm going to make a GPD lock-screen image that looks like a game title screen with the GPD logo and says "Press Select to Start" for when I have friends playing on it.

Hi skelton.
I receive my gpd xd 32 gb today.  ;D ;D ;D
But the gamepad apk,  when chose null joystick the xd freezes and restart.
If a try a second time choosing the null joystick, freezes and restart in loop.
Forcing me to enter in recovery mode and execute the 2 wipes.

How can i solve this? I installed the version in Q9, and don't work.
The game horizon chase need to use the option null joystick.

Thanks.

Where did you install it? In q9 or XD? this rom is for xd, not for q9. q9 has its own legacyROM

Try reinstalling using PC method 1. Null joystick works fine, so try reinstalling in case it was a bad installation.

Few things you can try:
- Go to settings> tap on wi-fi > tap on the options top right ( 3 dots ) > tap on advanced >
        - from here you can make sure Keep Wi-Fi during sleep is set to Always
        - If that doesn't work maybe try to turn off Wi-Fi optimization (uncheck it)
- If all that still doesn't work try to charge the GPD XD when you are downloading
- If nothing works then install a 3rd party app like KeepScreen so that the screen stays on while you download.

Btw love the rom (and anyway to get the gpd stock launcher all the android ones are kinda more touchscreen made they work but i liked the stock one of the gpd xd)

If you mean what Launchers work best with the gamepad, I personally use SquareHome2, and it works great with gamepad. less touch, more gamepad.
Thanks yeah wifi optimization is on that might be the problem.
And i mean i use nova. But i liked the stock style launcher... But i tried all suggestions on here but didn't like them. Can u get the stock launcher? Just for fun i think i still stickt to nova but who knows

Via usb it wil be detected as a flash drive,so the route will be different. sotrage/sdcard1 is for microSD directly. For external applications use in a usb, try with the folder mount or link2SD. Apps are always installed in internal like in any android device that use unified storage. Also, make sure your usb flash drive is formatted in fat, if it's in ntfs some apps may not be compatible with it.

That applies for legacyrom or stock, since storage is the same in all firmwares

That depends on the app. I have never downloaded torrent to a flash drive, so I suppose it depends on the app

I fixed with "Paragon Root Manager", now i can also use NTS drive as storage. Awesome !

i have 2 question:

1 - Legacy_XD_14_NULLJOYSTICK has any type of overclock vs stock rom?

2 - Is safe to use 1.6 or 1.8 version, Is only speed related?

3 - Is normal that the wifi signal is not very strong? are there 2 walls from me and the router xD

1 - Just ddr speed, but is practically like stock.
2- Completely safe.
3- That depends on how the wifi antenna is soldered. I had great wifi on mine. It's not firmware dependant anyway.
