Q9 not recognized by BatchTool
« on: July 25, 2018, 02:04:41 pm »
Hi all-

I wanted to flash LegacyRom on my Q9 PSV but it seems my PC does not recognize the tablet.

Whenever I turn it on by pressing Volume+ it just starts the regular way, and no box becomes green in the program.

I tried on both my PCs. One is a Win 7 and the other a Win 10-

Can anybody help please?

Make sure you have installed the rockchip drivers that come with the rom and use a usb 2.0 port if possible.

First of all, since I think you're the author of the ROM, let me thank you very much.

Then, I installed the drivers, with success, before opening the batch tool.

My 2 laptops have only 2 USB ports, so I don't have much to choose. Plus, none has the blue colored connector, so I think they are USB 2.

I tried them all but no success for the moment.

Just to be sure, the correct procedure should be:

Launch batch tool
Load image
Connect q9 turned off
Keep volume+ pressed and turn on q9

Right?

How long should I keep the 2 putting pressed? After some seconds I just see the gpd gears spinning on the screen and a regular boot goes on...

Just a couple of seconds. Try the following, just press volume + button but don't press power. That should do the trick.

Unfortunately, just pressing Volume+ does not do anything.

I forgot to tell that the Q9 already has LegacyRom 2.0 installed, if that matters.

It's the same no matter the firmware you have installed. If it's not recognized seems a driver issue,

Unfortunately I don't own the computer I used to install the ROM anymore... I'm really stuck at this point...

Sorry to be here again asking for help, but I tried installing the driver on every computer I have access to, and even using every USB cable I have lying around, to no success.

Is there at least a way to revert to the original firmware rom? I had no problem with that, and even with no doubts worse than the Legacy Rom I can't use the GPD Q9 at the moment.

Actually, I had no problems that I remeber until I dediced to enable the "memory swap" option. The setting that enabled faking the SD card as the internal one.

From that moment on, 1) many games keep downloading their data as if they are not installed, 2) some games complain that they can not be installed on the external storage and, most important to me, 3) Retroarch completely stopped working!!!

Every time I launch it it downloads it's assets again (seems related to point 1 above). If I try to launch any game in my collection (they are clean and thoroughly tested and they work on the sama version of Retroarch on my PC) Retroarch crashes.

I even installed a log debugger to look into the problems and the error message is that the Retroarch cores are all missing, even if I installed them, so it really seems that the "memory swap" switch screwed something in my GPD...
