Really impressive. I could see the community getting behind this if he intends to go commercial with it. I would really love to see it in a gameboy pocket case though. it's really a tad to small for my hands. either way well done!

ha ha, I feel more stress on this project. :)
Since I would like to make only one device for me, any commercial is not what I want.
So, sorry about this because I would not like to sale this device.
But since this project is fully open source project (include software, hardware, kernel, apps), it is welcome everyone take it or to produce it.

I think you should take the credit for your hard work Steward not someone that will produce it i am sure someone will but i think atleast give the manufacturing to a good company that you know of.

First of all, this looks awesome! My only question is, how does it play with the buttons so close to the bottom?  Is it hard to hold and play?

I think this would be amazing inside the rs97 shell for example. Do you plan on approaching any company to offer the design?

I just update current progress on my website/百度貼吧/this forum about this open source project.
I cannot promise anything (ex: when it will complete).
It is my interesting, not the purpose of earning money !

Revised PCB arrived !
Will test it soon.

@Steward_Fu , take your time but please reconsider the possibility of a commercialization.
Your concept is a dream machine. I would dream to have something so tiny and exclusive in my hands...
Just a suggestion: A solution could be, for example a request for proposal on Alibaba.
But you are the one who choose, it is your baby  ;)

(SORRY Steward, only just read the post about not wanting to make a commercial version, however saying that some of us cannot solder for toffee and have a huge interest in super small handheld so I hope you change your mind one day, however if you I fully respect that)

I for one will be 100% interested in buying one these... Let em know if you ever decide to release them for sale, I will certainly buy one for me and one for my son if you do :)

It would be a great Kickstarter project, or even a great privately funded project... Whatever you decide I will back you or respect you choice if you never sell them :)

great work !!

(Jutley, sorry buddy only just seen this thread mate)

Finally, it can boot into system via sdcard (pin order is wrong in PCB, I will fix it in next revised PCB).
But the PCB of LCD is not work still, I am debugging it.
Hope it can be fixed soon :)

Since LCD PCB has changed its pinout (SPI) but I forget to change it in framebuffer driver.
After changed, it can display logo on IPS screen but the color is incorrect because the R (RGB) is always in high level.
It seems the core board has been breaked by me. ha ha.
Luckily, I have prepared more core board for testing.
Hope I can fix it soon....
