Here's a X-mas present.
Anyone remember this device from circa May 2011?
Serious work was done by Booboo on getting dingux onto it, but he hasn’t been involved in the scene for quite some time, and there has been no action on the Gemei GA330 device since. So Steward doing this offers a sliver of hope:
Hi, after one day working to disassembly Booboo's rom.bin(SDCard binary file).
It took a long time (relatively speaking) but Nathan Morgan built his own mini-laptop using a Raspberry pi and readily available bits and bob. The whole thing will cost you a little more than the $35 for the Raspberry Pi alone, but is still a considerably quicker and cheaper option than waiting on an Openpandora … read the whole story here.
Gotta love the bulk that this thing ends up being! Eats iphones for lunch.

Go here to enter!!
Willgoo have lowered the price of the YDPG17 to $69.99 from its original 80.99! The YDPG17 is Yinlip’s challenger to the JXD S60X series, but has a better build quality and screen overall. At these crazy prices, they won’t last …
Heck, used to be a single N64 cart would’ve cost you more than this pittance. So click here to get one for Christmas, at this new great price!
Yinlips has now released their new 7 inch open gaming tablet, the YDPG 27!
You can get one here from Willgoo for $119.99, postage included.
Here are more details:

What better way to enjoy Christmas than with some quick MAME TMNT on a 7” portable screen? Here’s that link from Willgoo again, if you’d like to buy one this festive season.
Midway into writing a review of the new Archos Gamepad, DeenOX reports:

Follow that discussion here!
And the great folk at openconsoles.com have written a massive test here, for the exciting new Archos android tablet that may actually DO IT ALL (read this!)! It’s on sale now, but only in Europe. Can anyone report in on where this can be bought?
The review is in French, so if you can stomach the google translate, I offer the below as a public service with many thanks to openconsoles.com:
We tested the Archos Gamepad for you!
Appointment was given Sunday with CAJL, administrator www.jbmm.fr/ in a Parisian brasserie to put my fingers gamer on the new tablet Archos: the Gamepad.
For those who do not know CAJL jbmm.fr and I invite you to read the interview he granted us cordially at the following link: Interview.
It should be noted that these first impressions are more focused on the gaming console. Specs, part multimedia benchmarks and others are the strong point of CAJL ;) You can find the test here: Test CAJL .
And for others who remained trapped in their cave, a few reminders on the Gamepad.
Introduction to the Gamepad:
This is a tablet / console game running Android, provided physical controls to play without using the touch screen. As a gamer and especially retro -gamer, I must admit that the touch to play I have never packed. Apart from a few exceptions such as ScummVM, we must admit we do not find the flexibility and speed of the physical controls of yesteryear.
Following the current fashion some well-known Chinese consoles on Open Consoles (JXD, Yinlips), Archos us lay a machine rather well endowed in terms of both power in simplicity.
First, some specs, so that we know what we are talking about:
- Android 4.1
Grip and ergonomics:
Having neither hands nor lumberjack fairy fingers (basically hands "normal"), it is really like any tablet and it is relatively thin as the controls are accessible easily.
It will be virtually no need to remove your hands once a game is started, since all the buttons are placed near each other. No need to get on one side of the console to find the START or SELECT, they are in range of thumb movement.
I have not been able to try the L2 and R2 buttons, I do not know if their location is really wise and practical to use. It will be used either with the front of the thumb, or release the analog stick or twist a finger to press it. A test on the emulator PSX particular :)
The screen - multi touch:
The image quality and resolution are of good quality. The colors stand out well and bright screen as you can see on the video. Being in a dimly lit, I could play without problem.
It is very pleasant to navigate through the menus with the touch meets the finger and the eye. Not had the opportunity to test the multi, but in general it does not worry too much so do not worry.
Obviously, the resolution is not suitable for some games on emulators, so it will play options for the best possible display depending on the platform. If you want the Full Screen, expect a distortion of the image, but this is not due to the console of course. So it is according to your personal tastes you enjoy or not the size of the screen. A 3.5 "or 4" is generally more appropriate.
This is a point that I regret a lot of other consoles, the rear sound is often worse and especially masked by the fingers when playing. No worries here.
Here is one of the most important and crucial to use this machine as a real game console
There are good and bad points in my opinion.
* Side good points, we have all the controls at your fingertips and it's very nice. I did not expect to find L2 and R2 so it's a good surprise.
* In all games and emulators that I've tried, buttons and triggers responded perfectly, without lag as I could have on the DROID X360. They have the same 'feel' than some consoles like Yinlips Chinese (G18), ie they do not 'clack-clack' and we should not support such a nag to trigger action.
* As I said earlier they are generally well placed (including START and SELECT) and finds its feet quickly.
* Two analog pads separated: this is another VERY good point. Suffice it to watch the video with Shadowgun to realize that it becomes very easy to get around and look in all directions as we can do on our nextgen consoles (PS3, 360 ...)
* THE pleasant surprise this console, it is unquestionably the map included in the system. As you could catch a glimpse of the video, there is a tray icon that allows Android keys directly map physical versus tactile keys.
This means that you can assign a hardware button to a button touch easily and even export our setup for a friend who loves the Gamepad and our mapping. This is a simple text file that you can tweak to adjust the settings.
Archos announces a hundred titles compatible with this map including Shadowgun, Assassin's Creed, ePSXe, Nova 3 ect ... List available on request ;)
* However, and this is a personal opinion, I think the D-PAD buttons are a bit too spaced a few millimeters. Caused the problem: make diagonal.
* Many retrogamers will want to replay the SNES or NEO-GEO particular, and out of hadokens may be a little hard for some. I remember that I was not able to test it very long, but that little detail bothered me. Just watch the video to get an idea of the spacing.
* Regarding the analog pads, I also regret to find those consoles and JXD Yinlips Chinese guy. Ie pads a little hard and inflexible as it can have a 3DS in particular.
Side games and emulators:
Side emulators, I tested the N64, PSX and Megadrive (I wanted to do more, but there was no time). Overall the results are good, I have not detected a problem with key combos. But if you know: the triggers that do more because we press another button at the same time, or two button presses give another action as a START or SELECT ... Grrrrrr.
N64 for anything in particular. Mario Kart turned without jerks.
On the PSX, I tested quickly Tekken 3 and I think it lacked a bit of speed compared to the original, you'll have to compare.
On the Megadrive, including Sonic, I could feel a very slight frameskip (same set) but again it will test deeper.
And here is the video of the mini-test, enjoy: D
I think those who have pre-ordered the game pad should not be disappointed with their purchase. I wonder if Santa is not going to file a under the tree: D
From what I have been told CAJL, part multimedia (movies, internet) is very good. The screen size can make it enjoyable internet browsing and watching movies.
Regarding the gaming part, I think we are dealing with a machine in good quality / price ratio. Having a French product is a definite plus, especially with respect to the support. It may be much easier to access that service when buying abroad, including China.
I was pleasantly surprised integrated map that will quickly and easily configure its keys. More be separated analog pads is a huge plus for all FPS games.
Autonomy seems excellent as hopefully about 5:30 before use through the charging box.
Now she can not please everyone. Its size can not store it in a pocket, so plan a suitable protective cover for transport.
I did not like the D-PAD as I explained earlier due to the spacing of the buttons, so I turned quickly to the analog stick instead.
At each now has his own opinion ;)
For those who are interested, you can order it now on Amazon Marketplace and Rue du Commerce, happy hunting: D And by the way do not forget to read the excellent article CAJL: Link

Re: [SCRIPT] Update!! Naxeras 1.2 RCO for JXD s602 Root, Clean, Optimice and more!!!
Only issue, you'll loose the front camera if you don't modify the script.
To fix this you only have to go into the files/clean folder open build.prop and modify the ro.gplus.CMOS_SENSOR_2 value like this:
it should be enough.

JXD has now released its new JXD S5300 model – essentially the popular (for this sort of thing) JXD S602 with a 5 inch screen and form factor, and you can get one now from Willgoo here for a mere $89.99! This baby talks to the JXD S602 – see the video below. Think of this as the JXD S602 XL of the JXD 602’s, a la Nintendo’s NDS XL range … oh fuggit, JXD really needs to work on their marketing budget!
I’ll let willgoo do the talking:
Good news! The first batch stock of JXD S5300 had been well received. You can place your order for it now here!
An interesting finding from us- JXD S5300 can be linked with JXD S602 to play games:
What do you think of this new device? It is a new device whose features and design combines JXD S5110 and JXD S602- the real capacitive touch screen and with the WiFi-Direct Multi-playing and key mapping, whose features that JXD S5110 do not have. And it owns 5 inches capacitive touch- not sure if it is 5 points as we need to test it, bigger screen than JXD S602 and better touch screen control.
You can compare it with JXD S602 and S5110. We will bring you more details for this device in these coming days.
Here is the general gaming reviewing that we took from JXD:
At a glance on JXD S5300: (information gained from JXD official site. We will test the device once we get the prototype)
1. Manufactured Root+ USB debugging
2. 5.0 inch(800x480), capacitive touch screen
3. All games icon display, display all the games in the machine and TF card
4. 1GHz CPU+ 512MB DDR3
5. WiFi Direct Flight
