“Hello World” on long forgotten Gemei GA330

Image
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:"Hello, world!" code and boot from SDCardHi, after one day working to disassembly Booboo's rom.bin(SDCard binary file).
Now, i have modified the disassembly file to assembly code and this code cab be compiled as binary file.
this binary file cab also be burned to 2G SDCard and show some initial message(Hello, world!) via uart(rs232).
i think this is a small milestone to hack ga330 game handheld.
i will continue to do such thing and find out all registers(if i can).
all steps as following:

Is this the start of actual deliveries for the GCW Zero? Thanks to Nick Nillo for the heads up!

Can’t wait for an OpenPandora? Build your own with a Raspberry Pi

Image
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.

Naxaras’ JXD S602 Custom Script now confirmed working on JXD S603

Indask8 reports:Re: [SCRIPT] Update!! Naxeras 1.2 RCO for JXD s602 Root, Clean, Optimice and more!!!
« Reply #150 on: December 09, 2012, 12:34:42 PM »
I have a good news for JXD S603 owners, the script is compatible (tested with 0814 firmware).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:
ro.gplus.CMOS_SENSOR_2=SP0A18_yuvit should be enough.Go here for the full thread!

JXD S5300 (a 5 inch version of the JXD S602) released

Image
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…
