Its not trash just the firmware is cfw has been done still in early stages but if you ask me this is a cool device for the price everything RS90 was but better.

The whole point of the RS-90 was the micro size, this has the same crippled SoC but in a bigger shell. Aside from the ultra cheap price there's not much to get excited about.
Handhelds:
GPD Win, GPD XD 64gb, PlayGo, RS-90, 3DS XL, DSi XL, GBA SP, GBBC Clone, Gameboy Pocket c/w screen mod, PSP Go
PC:
Medion Erazer, Toshiba Z20t, Dell Mini 9, Psion 5MX
Tons of other old laptops and tablets.....

if anyone has the device and wants to try the cfw instructions below.

1. flash bootloader into flash memory
flash bootloader
download flasher.tar.gz from release page here https://github.com/steward-fu/rg99/releases
put RG99 into boot mode (Press START and then power up)
plug USB into PC
command:
$ sudo flash.sh

2. flash .img into sdcard (this is file system)
download v1.0_sdcard.img.7z from release page here https://github.com/steward-fu/rg99/releases
prepare 4GB MicroSD
flash sdcard.img into MicroSD

Done

I have a RG 300 with poor screen, do you think it would be possable to to swap the ips screen from the RG 99 into the RG 300. I ask this because it is half the price of an ips RG 300.

So, this is end-user installable, no compiling or any other developer skills needed? Definitely trying it out, though not too soon, it will take me a while until I'll be able to get the device.

The bootloader from the 1.0 release will erase and replace the contents of the integrated flash storage, and load the new firmware from the tf card flashed with the sd card image, correct?
