Im starting my own yt channel based on the XD plus but more towards actual android gaming and not emulation, I had the 1.10 firmware already installed when I got it and I checked the gpd website they have released newer updates - https://www.gpd.hk/gpdxdplusfirmware
MY question is, is it worth updating as far gaming performance goes even in the slightest? If its not this brings me to my second concern.
I have heard apps that need root access like developer tools and gfx tools I think its called, allow you to spoof your device but also relieve the cpu lock in other words allowing the gpu and cpu to run at full speed? so the XD plus would be able to run at its full 2.1 GHZ or more? Confused?
Also I come to understand the best custom rom for the XD plus is cleanrom - http://xdrescue.com/frequently-asked-questions-faq/#stock-rom
On this linked page it says it comes rooted so thats convenient but also relieves CPU lock allowing to run at 2.1 instead of 1.8 which stock does, what about the gpu ?
Sorry if I sound like a tard I probably do but im learning as I go and my overall question is, taking all the specs into account that affect gaming performance maximization would the best option for me to install cleanrom? To utilize maximum gaming power of my XD plus? and if there are any cons to consider please dont hesitate to say.
Sorry its long I just had so much info to get out there to configure the next course of action.
Thankyou guys please do help.
