too bad about the sluggishness and battery life

I'm still rather curious about this unit "vanzatek game se"

how does it play GBA?
and how about sprite-based PS1 games?

an owner of this device has made a thread in the Android section:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/android-devices/tablet-vanzatek-game-se/
seeing as this device is Android-based, maybe this thread should be merged there?

Those specs were fine on the JXD S601, played PS1 pretty well and lots of N64 titles were playable with frameskip. I think that had Android 2.3 though which will have been less resource heavy. Maybe try to find older versions of Snes9X and epsxe/fpse to sideload?

That device is same specs and almost as s601, which was made by softwin (GPD) for JXd. Probably it performs worse because like s601 is underclocked to 600 mhz..... and the JXD s601 with skelrom went to 1.0 ghz. I wouldn't be surpirsed if in this device the softwin name appears in the kernel.... because as far as I know this was an oem device  made by softwin.

how much work would be required to make a custom Android for this device? seems like this handheld has a lot of potential.

A custom ROM without source Code would be just a repcaked stock ROM. Maybe Kernel could be overclock though. But hard to know.
I doubt there IS a dev with time And motivation though

repcaked
...

World's greatest typo!!!  We should all use this for repacked ROMs now.  Next one I do is being called LordDavon's RepCaked Rom!

No sarcasm.  I saw this and just went, "YES!"

yeah, the software. GPD was called softwin (they still use that name) and were an OEM company. They made the firmware for most JXD devices at that time, they broke relationship after JXD 7800b, and GPD started as a hardware company too.

I got this.

good: gba runs perfectly. ps1 sprite games seem ok. screen is big, controls are nice.

bad: 1 hour battery life =/

unit gets hot on the right, assuming where CPU is. wonder if it's an issue of bad battery or what.

this is with screen brightness at highest.
