CleanROM Bugfix

For my loyal Patreon following this isn’t exactly news anymore at this point, but things have been busy and as such I’ve lagged behind in keeping the side of things updated in sync with the Patreon. I’ve given the blog it’s (badly needed) update, and the CleanROM project page now holds the proper links […]

CleanROM Bugfix

This release unlocks all Wi-Fi channels / frequencies for use. This will please (mostly) european users where 5GHz channels 100-140 (DFS) are in heavy use (which were previously software-blocked, preventing you from using them). Furthermore, the back-button anti-repeat algorithm has seen some re-working, which hopefully should help users with bad back buttons have a somewhat […]

GPD XD(+) & Win 2 decal stickers available on Patreon!

Given the huge amount of support I’ve seen during the last month I’ve decided I should return the favor. As such, it’s time for some freebies for my most loyal supporters! From now, until the end of February, all Funding Pass owners over at my Patreon page, both existing and new, can request a custom […]

CleanROM Bugfix

This release addresses an issue where pressing one of the shoulder-buttons would wake the GPD XD+ from sleep, even if the lid was closed. This would most commonly happen while having the unit inside a pocket, or if it bumped into something inside a backpack (or the likes). Thanks go to foxsevent for bringing this […]

This update fixes an issue in the SPFlash build of where the AOSP stock recovery ended up replacing the TWRP recovery on first system boot. Existing users that flashed their system via TWRP (rather than SPFlash) aren’t affected by this bug and can safely skip this update if they want to. The update […]

A bug that prevented the “Headphone jack polarity” from persisting after a reboot has been fixed. The update is available on my Patreon page and will become publicly available 1 month from now (as always). Have an amazing day! ~ Black-Seraph

CleanROM is out! (Patreon Early Access)

It’s the end of 2018, let’s end it with a big bang. This post doesn’t come as a surprise to most of my viewership, given a big chunk of my audience stems from the GPD discord / gpdxd subreddit where the WIP development of CleanROM was a pretty public affair, but non-the-less, here we […]

“miSafes” Offline Camera Hack

I’ve never been a big IoT (internet of things) fan, but there was a time when I actively used one of these “miSafes” pet / baby camera doodads to keep an eye on my pets while I was overseas. It was convenient, cheap(er than other offerings), and did the job.That was in 2016. The other […]

GPD XD+ CleanROM released!

This release addresses the headphone jack issue caused by the recent introduction of a 2nd revision of the XD+ by GPD. The procedure of flashing CleanROM remains the same as always, but users need to know which revision of the XD+ they have and flash the matching version from the file (rev1 or rev2). Don’t […]

GPD XD+ VR Headphone Fix for CleanROM

Let’s keep it brief, as usual. If your GPD XD+ shows speaker / headphone issues after flashing the latest CleanROM, please flash the file attached to this post on top of it.
