The hardware probably isn't bad, because Doom2 runs nicely (I don't think any other cheap GBA emulator device can do that), and the price is fine, but the firmware is making it a failure. As it always does.

With cfw, this would be an instant hit.

Well I meant for the fact it doesn't really save the ROM battery save, and that if turned on and off or reset while plugged in it tends to glitch or brick (do not try it if you haven't, that's how mine died), I can't recommend it. I don't think it will get CFW because this is a GBA hardware clone with integrated flashcart. So unless someone figures out how to connect to PC and reflash via some ezclient like app it won't happen. That J1 connector on the motherboard does look interesting, wonder what it is for.

Internal saves do work for me, as long as I do the save dance properly.

Please someone figure this thing out. I posted in the other board on this handheld. I love this thing as do most of you in here. I tried to flash it with some versions of the bittboy cfw seems silly but had some results. Some people are saying it runs off a arm type board and heard a gameboy boot noise while trying to flash it direct to a pc. but it could be a lot better for sure it seems fairly unusual that we couldn't figure out how to flash this thing with some other firmware. It's a great device. Definitely a little bit better build quality then the bittboy and the volume wheel like the pocketgo is such a nice touch. id even be cool if you could just save easily instead of doing the whole dance correctly ain't nobody got time for that!

I ran a boot file from my bittboy in the root of the sd and when I press backup it goes to a black screen and makes a hum as if something is trying to boot im pretty sure if some cfw was developed it would be awesome!!

Steward is nowhere to be found. In fact, we have no news about his Retro V3S either...
Don't count on it, in fact be surprised if there's a CFW.

Yeah, no news from steward so far. This is sad.
No one should expect a CFW for this handheld at this point.

Forgive my level of English, I am Spanish and I use the translator. Thanks for the tutorial @jamespoo1 but that program that you show has many drawbacks, I'm going to list them ...

1. When you want to compile a certain amount of roms, not all of them always appear, that is, you create the multirom with 10 games and for example, only 7 appear in the menu.

2. You cannot put the games full screen.

3. And more importantly, with the system you display (Goomba Color) you cannot save games or load them even if the option appears in the menu.

i saw these being sold for 16.93usd the other day at that price with cfw would have been amazing but i guess we will never see any

it sucks that this device is basically just a gba flash cart built into a handheld :(
