Obscurehandheld’s review of JXD S7300 with NCCE Firmware v1.0!


This review has been kindly put together and narrated by my brother and it demonstrates the NCCE v1 ROM. This ROM fixes a lot of the problems apparent in the JXD firmware, but does still have a way to go. Since uploading the video Skelton has released his XSample ROM, and Damedus and Vektor are about to release a new version of NCCE with mapping support for the right analog stick. We’ll make an update video in a couple of weeks just to show what’s improved, but for the time being if you’re looking for a pretty in-depth and unbiased review of the device you can check it out below.Link to Damedus and Vektor’s NCCE v1 ROM

It costed less than the Kickstarter GCW Zero price.  I found the information on the source of the device from this forum:,276.0.htmlThis device is not supposed the same as the real the GCW Zero.  I guess this means the software will be different. As for the device, it seems to me to be the same externally to the GCW Zero (looking at pictures I have seen of it),  I do not know wh…

Justin Barwick (GCW Zero dude) in fundraising attempt to buy (some) Atari rights; GCW Zero kickstarter pledgers say “meh” …

Actually, they say something stronger than “meh”, but this is a PG rated blog. Except for the boobies.Justin Barwick, the organiser of the GCW Zero Kickstarter now has a new campaign (on a different fundraising board) to attempt acquire certain assets of Atari. This is the page for the new campaign.  The response of the masses on Dingoonity makes a great read for fans of torrid non-fiction. Start here!
