Hi,

I have a GCW Zero device, is it possible to use newer emulators from RG350(M) on it?

How alike is the old GCW Zero with RG350 (and bittboy? pocketgo?)

could I open it up and change the sdcard for one with firmware for rg350?

They will work. The IPU will downscale it to 320x240, just like for the RG-350.
Of course if a game is designed for 640x480, this might make text unreadable for instance.

I think the gcw has an older chip so not sure if just swapping SD cards would work. But hey, it might.

No, exact same chip.

Are they alike enough that I could open the GCW0 and switch firmware to Rogue CFW by switching SDCard?
(Or is there a simpler way?)

I dont see any reason why anyone would want to switch something for a worse version of the same thing.

You can't switch the SD cards, it won't work. But you should be able to run the RG350 emulators on the GCW Zero.
