Speculations on the delay with the XD+  right now I'm getting the feeling that it may be supplier problem.

GPD reported to still have 1200 units of xd to unload. I think they just wanted to get rid of them before they decide to move on xd+. They have posted on their own forum that they will release end of march. So we will see.

I just received word once again from GPD that the XD+ is still on target for an end of March release. Everyone keep their fingers crossed lol.

Hmm... that's news to me. I have yet to hear about any such delay from GPD. Will keep this thread posted with any further developments on this...

It's not a problem of heat, because heat is pretty much the same as Xd. It's just normal by GPD, they alsi underclocked old XD by no reason, just supposedly battery time. Anyhow, I don't think they remove the underclock, so.....

But we can easily root it and unlock the power without needing a custom rom?

You can root it. Remove the underclock no. It doesn't seem that a custom ROM is gonna be made unless someone else do it. I ended with android scene.

That's a shame, thought one of those CPU apps might of been able to do something.
Yeah I don't expect a custom rom on this to be honest, your LegacyRom was awesome on the original XD but no one else really did anything so with you out of the game looks like we have to take it as is.

Still looking forward to it whenever it arrives. haha
