Right at the top of my OP in the issue thread, I have a link to where I find all the firmware: Where I get the firmware and Addon Files: GPD's Baidu File Location: http://pan.baidu.com/share/home?uk=389368662&view=share#category/type=0You will always find the latest and greatest there. It can take hours to download at times, so be ready.
Yo, GPD noob here. Just got my XD yesterday, and right now I'm trying to get everything set up. So I'm at the System Update app, and there's a download link for the latest firmware (3.3.9) and what seems to be some pre-install files (3.1). Should I install these 3.1 files before installing 3.3.9 or should I just go straight to 3.3.9? The last thing I want to do is brick my system the day after I got it.EDIT: For reference, the update app says I have 3.0 installed
3.4.0 is also available but as of yet there are no release codes or changelog so I've been holding off on installing it.

Considering that it came out pretty fast, I am thinking that it fixed something from 3.3.9. Although, I've found no issues with either.
Please forgive the dumb question but what does it matter if the system is rooted or not? I'm an android virgin.
To 'root' your phone means to gain administrative rights on the file system of your phone (in linux, root is the username of the master admin). With root access, you can install and uninstall anything you want on the phone.Most phones come with limited access regarding what you can and can't do on it. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, because it can keep users from accidentally breaking something they shouldn't mess with on the phone, especially in regards to the operating system. However, many manufacturers limit your rights to things that aren't really so mission critical, too, and rooting the phone gets around this.If you have a few unnecessary applications (bloatware) pre-installed on your phone that you cannot uninstall, rooting will give you this ability. It will also allow you to upgrade to newer versions of Android before your phone's manufacturer and/or cell provider make the updates available to you. Be warned, though, that rooting may void your warranty.
