Hi all, I went back to my GPD XD recently (after cheating on it with the Win for a good few months) and for some reason I just can't get it to boot anymore. As soon as I charge it, the green light comes on but the unit itself won't boot or allow me to turn it off (the green light is stuck).
I had this exact same thing happen to me as well. Unfortunately I had no luck even after trying to reinstall the firmware using the rockchip tools, the device was recognized by the tool, but only shows up blue with 1-1-1 in the tool not Green with 1-2 like it's supposed to. When I try to update I get an error stating "prepare idb start fail". I couldn't even boot into recovery, I just got a green light every time I pressed the power button.
I contacted willgoo and they were absolutely no help and told me the device was out of warranty (at the time I only had it for about 5 months)
I ended up contacting gpd directly and emailing back and forth a few times before they recommended me sending the device back to China for repair. I had to pay for shipping to China but they paid to send it back and the repair was free. I was scared to send it off and never see it again, but a few weeks later they said the repair was complete and shipped it back!
