Ah nice! Looks like no prime shipping but still a good deal. I played through about 1/3 cave story the other night and overall I just really like the handheld.

If you buy one I'd recommend putting the firmware on the internal SD card. Mine came with a 4gb card that is what the firmware needs. Then just put your roms and music on the external card.

Also worth noting that GMU player has been added to the latest firmware bundle.

Jumped up a bit, now back down to $40 from factory vendor on Amazon; just bought one.

I just got one of these, I did the "external boot" method and everything works perfectly! LGPT on it is incredible, I've been making a few sample sets to play with.

OpenDingux has built-in support for overclocking. If you're going to run SNES emulator, I recommend bumping it up to 600 mHz. It runs 60 fps very nearly consistently. Certainly the best SNES emulation I've seen on any of these sort of handhelds.

I'm probably gonna order a second as a backup :¬)

Is there another place to grab a compatible build of Piggy following the release of the new RetroFW firmware?

No, I'd ask a dev to recompile for you.

I asked on the Retrogamers Discord and they hooked me up. They now have a recent build in the ipk mirrors.

Regarding MIDI: Is it possible to do MIDI over USB (or with an external USB MIDI adapter) with Dingux builds? That would be a nice way to sidestep this whole modded serial challenge.

What's the advantage of retrofw over useless? I haven't kept up!

I don't think these devices can do usb host stuff so it wouldn't be possible. Devs over on discord would be able to answer. Honestly the mod is SO CLOSE to working, testing is just super slow.

I think it's mostly a better and/or less buggy kernel. I'm not sure otherwise. RetroFW hit 1.0 right before I got my unit, so I've been running it from the get-go.

That is exciting!
