PAP KIII Plus - 16gb version
« on: November 09, 2018, 01:10:02 am »
Anyone had a chance to compare the newer 16gb K3P with the old one? Any quality differences? Has anyone successfully got USB transfer to work?

I bought one and gave it away at an event https://youtu.be/IpDMDomNnR4 but I did not open it, I wanted it to be fresh for the winner LOL. People have contacted me and told me that my custom menu works on the new ones and I made it 16gb native before I even knew the new ones would come with a 16gb card. I have an image of the stock firmware that a viewer sent but have not dissected it yet. I hear there are issues getting the usb to work but have been told my menu fixes that too.

Thanks for the info. So, I'll need to disassemble it once to put your menu on it, right?

yes you would have to take it apart once. Take your time and you will be fine. they are more durable than people think.

I have both RS-97 v2.1 and PAP K3 plus 16gb v2.0. Where can I find dingux custom firmware for PAP K3? I tried some RS-97 firmwares on PAP but there is an issue with the screen resolution and colors are inverted. Thanks :)

So I bought one of the "new" 16gb versions. Comparing it to my kid's older version, here's my thoughts in no particular order:

* Quality control seems a bit better, at least in regards to the outer casing and fitting.
* Given they're around the same price, if you want to just buy and forget, get the new model. It has about 3,000 roms, including most if not all of the NeoGeo collection. No repeats, and I didn't notice any "hacks". 
* Same battery. Good enough for now, but I'll probably buy the gold "3030mah" one.
* USB transfer doesn't work out of the box. The USB icon comes up on the screen, but my PC doesn't see/connect.
* Motherboard is a different number but apart from a different version of the firmware, I can't detect any difference.
* Screen is bright, with no dead pixels.
* The white model has a small amount of light bleed around the LEDs. Doesn't bother me, but that doesn't happen with the black model.

Pretty happy with my purchase- probably the best "hack" handheld I've had since my Tapwave Zodiac. Thanks to LBL for the excellent videos. Now I just need to figure out 1) which custom image to put on this, and 2) How easy it is to use the RS97 stuff floating around on this site.

So glad you enjoyed the videos and your new device. For those that enjoy the stock menu there has to be a way to config it to recognize the USB connection. Why they removed that feature is a mystery.

My aliexpress seller lists an ALL-CAPS warning in red letters at the top of the item description that attempting to connect it to a pc will ruin it by deleting crucial system files. Maybe that has something to do with it? :-/
