I watched the RG350 video by Taki Udon:

Someone in the comment section is mentioning a teardown of the device which reveals the wire routing is terrible and the battery is attached to the cpu directly. Should this be cause for concern?

At the speed with which these devices come out this wouldn't surprise me.

I'm thinking if you want something that is well engineered check out Pyra! :)

Agreed... If I'd backed it when pre-orders first opened up I'd be wondering WTF by now.

I backed Pandora when it was opened up for pre-orders but I luckily got my unit almost as soon as the first units were ready.
From pre-order to getting it didn't seem to take that long. Though, I believe that some people never actually got their unit at all.

Thanks for the recommendation. :D

Nah I was more concerned of the safety of the RG 350 device and whether the battery will be OK. Hopefully everything will be fine. Was just wondering after I read the Youtube comment if this was something to be concerned about. :)

I don't know about the wiring, although I haven't heard any complaints about it from people so far, but the CPU is placed under the battery which is attached to the back of the shell. I don't know if it's actually touching the battery, but it's close.

The thing is, the GCW as far as I can tell did the same thing and as somebody who stuffed a much larger battery into his unit than the default one, so far it hasn't had any heating problems. It was a potential concern in the leadup to release but so far people like Taki have completely ran down their batteries while playing at full CPU output, and there haven't been any overheating problems. It's something that you may want to keep in mind, but no problems have been reported yet.

Even at full CPU for minutes, you can still put your finger on the CPU chip, it's not even that hot (40-50?C maybe). Ingenic chips are great for that.

I opened mine to flash the 1.0 FW update when I received it. Here's a picture:

Seems rather clean to me, I'll let you make your own judgement.

Nice, thanks for the post. Looks easier to work with than the gcw0, had problems lining the shoulder buttons back up in the past. Swapping that battery out looks straightforward.

When did you get yours and where? Im expecting mine mid october from retrogame300's main webpage.

I emailed retrogame300 about shipping dates and they replied that mine would be shipping next week.
We shall see...

Thanks for the info, I didnt want to bug them after I already asked if it was shipping with the new FWupdate pre-installed, they told me yes.

That's good to hear, thank you for that.

RetroArch emulation??

The GCW had an Alpha build of RetroArch but not sure how good it was... Maybe the RetroArch team will consider compiling a version for the RG350... I reckon the RG350 will be more popular and accessible / affordable than the GCW was. But that said, I dont know, I am just guessing really....  :-X

Anyone know people on the RetroArch Dev team ??  ;)
