New GPD XD Firmware
« on: August 31, 2015, 02:22:12 pm »
So I'm expecting my XD today and I see that there is a new firmware that was just released TODAY at the official page.  The new version is 3.3.2.  My question is, how the hell do you download it?  If I click the link it takes me to some pan.baidu.com site.  If I click the link there to download it looks like it wants me to download some kind of software before it will let me get the firmware file.  Is there a direct download for it?  I'd like to have it ready to go when DHL comes today.  Also, how do you flash the new firmware?

Further, there was talk in another thread about changing the governor on the CPU to get the max 1.4ghz at all times.  Is that in settings somewhere or do I need to download an app off the Play Store to change the setting.

Thanks!

I use generally jdownloader to download things from pan baidu server.

To change CPU settings, just use an app for that, I always use sETCPU but there are others like NoFrills or Trickster MOD.

I don't have XD but I suppose it's the same method as q9 or other Rockchip devices.

Thanks!  If any other users could confirm that this is the correct method, that would be great!




In order to install the firmware you need RK Batch Tool in your PC included in the rar package. Rockchip drivers are also included in case you don't have them.


 Open Batch tool and select the Legacy_XX image file (.img).
 With GPD power off, just connect it via USB Cable to PC. Then just press and Hold Volume + button and Press Power. RK Batch Tool will detect device, and you'll see the number 1 with a green box. If you see with a pink box, just select Switch Button until you see it in green. If the system ask you for some drivers, then just use the one included in the Batch Tool (or using driverInstaller package to install rockchip USB drivers). It's not mandatory but recommended to install with full battery.
 Once device is detected with a green BOX, just select Restore and wait patiently while firmware is written.
 Device will auto reboot to recovery and format your partitions. Just wait patiently until all process is done, since it's a long process and first boot can take several minutes, so just wait until it finishes and you see the home Android launcher.

After reading the readme file after downloading the newest firmware, it looks like you can just put the update.img file on an external SD card (fat32) and insert it into the GPD XD and it will prompt you to update the firmware to the newest version after 10 seconds or so.

You have two options for upgrading your firmware:

1. Copy update.img to a microSD card and insert it in to the GPD XD, it will automatically detect this and prompt you to upgrade
2. Use the Rockchip Batch Tool for RK3288 and flash over USB from your computer

I've used both methods on my XD so far, both work well. The SD microSD method is the easiest.

As for download links...


There is the "2.4.0" firmware linked here by Geekbuying: http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-devices/good-news!gpd-xd-game-tablet-pc-is-available/

There is the "3.2.0" firmware linked here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-devices/gpd-xd-firmware-v3-2-0/

And lastly, from gpd.hk, there is a "3.3.2" available, http://pan.baidu.com/s/1i3xqXEl

I've only tried the "3.2.0" so far as it had a mega mirror, and it seemed to be the same as what came on the device. Currently waiting for the "3.3.2" to download.

Great! Can you provide some mirrors for people outside of China? The Baidu links are very, very slow.

I remember downloading a firmware once for my JXD S7100 and it took 2 solid weeks. Crap internet in Australia :(

I updated this morning.  Not sure what's changed, but everything seems to be working fine.
