GP2X 2.0.0 Firmware

April 29th, 2006 by TimeDoctor

The GP2X open-source Linux-based gaming handheld with a dash of SDL and some Star Truckers (which is one of the finest open-source games I’ve played in months) has a new firmware version 2.0.0 out. I got mine a few days ago and have been loving it since, mainly due to the fact that I can play my old NES games without having to deal with the rickety cartridge system. Changes in wonderful engrish:

  • Booting time is shortened.
  • Mounting speed is shortened due to the file system exchange.
  • Loading speed of boot loader and kernels are shortened.
  • We reduced unnecessary process of initiation
  • You can copy, delete and move files in NAND Memory when connecting USB through PC.
  • We extended battery life using time by blocking USB 2.0 power consumption and reducing power consumption when you don’t use USB
  • Addition of system menu.
  • We added settings function for high level users.
  • We added volume limit: When you use headphone, you can adjust volume limitation.However if you want to maintain this settings, sound volume of exterior speaker is get to lowered.
  • Addition of automatic execution: you can execute file at the same time of inserting SD card in the case of executing certain files.
  • USB connection is so much improved by correcting USB driver.
  • It also has a cute theme song when it turns on now :-)

    Now this thing just looks interesting. Some anyone have one of these?

    If I can write my own software for it using SDL (which I know like the back of my hand), and it has USB connections, that could be a rather useful toy.

    Is there anything like this with networking? Anyone know of such a thing?
