Re: RetroStone boot problem identified

I tried this mod before i pack it up and send it back.

The mod does not do anything different, still crashes on boot, every time something different happens, black screen, scrolling text then crash.

On the odd occasion it might boot but this has defiantly not fixed it for me.

Disk part does nothing, this is nothing to do with it so dont waste your time. Any card formatted and flashed that boots ONCE, is correctly flashed. The problem is with the hardware or the image ( i doubt if is the image or it wouldn't boot at all ) , if i had to hazard a guess id say the hardware i...

Re: I give up

Tried all the above, id much rather have a refund, the screen is awful, ive had many handhelds and this is by far the worst screen i have ever seen. The clumsiness of it, the crap d pad, the fact that you have to flash OS over and over again to even get it working....and when you do it crashed and c...

Re: Questions regarding battery and charging

The on off switch is awful, its loose, soldered at an angle and it is not soldered on the top of the pads and is moving when switched....at least on my unit it is. The main component with wear and tear is the on off switch and this should be solid, i think this will fail on lots of units if this is ...
