So thanks to skelton once again and romain337 for compiling the kernel we can start releasing custom roms. This is a simple repack of the stock rom with the following modifications:
-------------------------------------------------
Included the Unlocked Kernel: CPU is 2.11GHz
Included patched boot.img and included Magisk in the installation to allow root. ( This means rom is prerooted )

Removed the following APKS:
- Droidcast4GPD
- Fba4gpd
- Gbairod
- GBoxDesktop
- GBoxGameCenter
- GBoxSettings
- softwinEmulators
- Facebook
- Happy_Chick
- kodi
- Musicmatch
- MX_Player
- N64
- Nesirod
- Netflix
- ppsspp
- ppsspp4gpd
- RetroArch
- twitter
- UGame
- xiyuegame
- YouTube

- Removed the softwin video instructional in /media

- Included an older version of ESFile Explorer ( no ads and free )

Spoofed the build.prop so that the XD+ shows up on the play market as Nexus 9
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Going to test it out and see if everything is in order. Someone more experienced may be able to remove a bunch more apps (especially Google apps). but I took the minimal apps so that I wont break anything. I may change the spoof to something better later or if advised to go with another device. Testing it out now, I will try and update with results but all seems ok.

I will try to put up all apps included in stock on a website for anyone to download individually in case they want them.

This will become S8LightRom
--------------------------------------------
Suggestions on name?
Suggestions on further modifications?

Sorry was late to update:

V3 Released

Great stuff,
Happy to install and test if you need some end user feedback.
any changes to the launchers? I don't like the GPD metro style but at least they have a switch UI option.
still I end up using Nova.

I'll back up original apk's but good to have them online for people too.

Awesome, this is great!  Let us know when the update would become available.  Also, I have a MAC so hopefully there's a way to update it by putting everything on an external SD and updating directly from the card like Legacy Rom was able to do.

This is great!!! De-bloated, Rooted and more functionality/performance out of the box is awesome!

Thanks to romain337, Skelton and PsyOps for this one.

 
Any chance of the screen refresh rate being fixed/locked?

Have the new clocks been stress tested?

1) What's with frequencies? Do we still need to use Kernel auditor to change it or it will changes automatically?
2) Also what about hight CPU  temperature with 2.11 Ggz, Is there overheat or it's ok? What if make 2,0 Ggz to avoid overheating?

Do the newer Telltale games work better? I love my XD original because it is great for emulators and the Android games I want to play.

The CD Plus however is terrible for A New Frontier and the two Batman games.

The flashing process isn't incredibly hard. You could upgrade to the unlocked kernel, and if you don't like it you could go back.

glad to see this work is being done.

Has anyone tested the new kernel? Is it a big improvement over stock? Does it thermal throttle more than stock? My GPD is doing all the tasks I  throw at it so I'm just trying to see the benefits of it. (already de-bloated my ROM and rooted.)

There may be a v4 in a second. I am going to take the other ones down since there is no reason to keep them.

Someone pointed out that I forgot to debloat the userdata. I will be testing now to see if I successfully debloated it. Ill update in a sec.

Great! Looking forward to flashing this!

Can I update from stock safely (leaving out userdata of course)?

Also what about the impact on performance and battery life? Unlocking the kernel has CPU frequency moving from 1.8 to 2.1GHz right?
