I still need to put in subtitles for multilingual support. Let me know if i have any mistakes, it was kinda rushed. Some nub posted a video that will cause users to lose their data, so lets hope most people find their way to mine.

It's nice.

I would like to add one suggestion if anyone face the same issue I faced.

When I conntected my XD plus to my PC with power-on, the tool was unable to detect my XD plus.

I have to power off my XD plus, connected it to my pc, press Vol Down and Power button to turn it on, then everything is fine.

That was in the original video but  number of people including myself found it didn't work using this button combination and simply plugging the device in while powered off was all that is needed.

Maybe it's down to firmware already on the XD or somehow related to PC USB ports.

I included a written tutorial too : http://xdrescue.com/gpd-xd-plus-install-firmware/

Yeh if you follow instructions on video and written it should work. I found that using the button combo works too, only because its being powered on, not because you are doing a combo of buttons. Dunno tbh. Whatever works hehe.

I have a bit of an issue here, the driver installation fails, i start the SP_Driver_V1524.exe, it goes normally it unpacks the files, then the driver setup begins, it tries to copy the driver but in the end it just fails, says the driver couldn't be installed pleases contact the driver provider, or something.

Also how can i check my firmware version?

Settings> About Tablet> Build Number, I think.

Try disabling signature verification.
Make sure you have USB debugging on. Settings > Developer options ( make sure that is toggled on - top right hand corner button ) , under Debugging is the setting for usb debugging.
Make sure you run the driver install exe by right clicking it and clicking on "run as administrator".

Dunno if you are just using the video but the written link tut is here: http://xdrescue.com/gpd-xd-plus-install-firmware/

One issue down, one more to go, the flash tool does nothing, i have debug mode enabled, i have my GPD connected via USB, i start the flash tool, select the scatter file, i press download, and nothing happens.

My best guess is that my PC can't find the GPD device, but i dunno.

Any clues?

Also how do i change he language in the recovery menu?

Not sure about the language since I was always on english firmware.

Make sure you have your xd+ completely off.
Make sure the flash directory is off of C: , it will not work in any other place.

Now he tells me,  ;)

Is this rom, safe and tested? Mostly for the 2.11GHZ unlock.

I did some stress testing under normal 1.8GHZ, and this thing can get pretty hot.

I'm using it and its nothing more than small mods on 1.10 without bloat. As the website owner and poster I have to say "do it at your own risk", but you should be fine. No diff than a stock install as far as risks.

Yes I noticed it gets hot. The cpu has a safety safeguard for temp and it should toggle down on its own. But yes the xd and xd+ has a very bad heat dissipating design but i dont think you will reach those clock speeds until you push emu. Like high demand emus like ppsspp, reicast, and similar. It should be fine but you should take that into consideration if you upgrade. I will play with kernel adiutor later to try and copy the setup we had for xd.

In the next version, could you remove, the in built roms? there is nearly 1.5GB of them.

As for CPU, no problem, i can always use cpunofrill to downclock it back.

Sure. I could use a list of apps to remove. Just start naming them off. I just didnt keep going because I was afraid that eventually i would remove an app the system needed.

These aren't apps, these are rom files games for the emulators.
They are roms folder and the specific system folder like ps1, n64 ect.

Also a little issue, cpuz says this devices is rooted but nofrillcpu won't start cause the devices isn't rooted.
I tried installing supersu but it didn't help.

device is rooted with magisk. Just grant permissions to your cpu app. NoFrills a bit outdated. I suggest you use kernel adiutor for CPU control if you need it.

Any suggestions? a good app for cpu control, also i like the new version that was made.  ;D

Hmm, interesting, i installed the new version and my 32GB GPD XD+ became a 3GB GPD XD+ somehow i lost 29GB of theoretical space.

kernel adiutor is what I use for cpu. No idea about your other issue. I use stock firmware. Well, I don't use xd+ too much, but it is what I have installed.
