What can be scavenged from GPD XD
« on: May 21, 2018, 10:40:40 pm »
Hey guys,

My GPD XD is basically gathering dust since I bought a proper android phone that actually performs 24.5 trillion times better and has Oreo on it...

So I was thinking instead of letting the GPD XD die of oxidation, is there any cool project I can do with it? I'm not an expert on electronics, but would it be possible to use the screen (easily? IDK) connected to a RPI (which I think could fit the innards of the GPD XD) and maybe also the buttons could work?

Has anyone done anything interesting?

Basically what I'm saying is just tossing away the board inside and bringing some life to the case plus using the screen and or pads that I think are pretty decent.

I live in a place where I cannot send this thing anywhere in the world without paying probably around $50 USD for shipping alone, neither I can sell it locally since people are barely discovering fire (third world).

It's just I bought it when I was an Apple person; now that I sold all my mac stuff including iPhone and have a semi high end android (with a 5.9" screen), this thing is basically a paperweight, but I figured I could do something cool with it.
