What changes are going to be done to the handheld? Or is it just the case? Which I love the look of by the way, looks like a nicer Dingoo a320.
White/black color shell, same battery and the cartridge slot is removed. That's all I know so far.

Probably but i haven't looked into it much. It's probably going to run slower than Mame4all. (unless i'm proven wrong, how well was it running on the GCW0 ?)

and, about Steward, is he alive? working on some updates for this firmeware or porting somenthing?
Last time i talked to him, i was complaining about the kernel missing the LCD panel drivers.
He asked me where i got the source from and i pointed towards his github repo.
Then for some strange reasons, he deleted his old repo and reuploaded them again under different names.
No explanation why and i still don't know how he managed to have a working kernel so we're forced to use his precompiled binary.
A huge shame as i had more ideas to improve performance yet more at the kernel side...

@gameblabla I'm almost sure we are still using the kernel from original firmware. I remember reading Steward never got a working kernel from source (yet?) mainly due to missing LCD driver.
