I decided to dig out my old GP2X last night and thought I might try installing Open2X on it. My F100 is on the firmware 2.0.0. Can I follow the instructions on the Open2X website to update straight away or do I need to update to a newer standard firmware first? I think that I updated the bootloader at some point but I can't remember which version.
I could be wrong, but I think I remember reading somewhere that the filesystem was changed in one of the newer standard firmwares, along with a few other changes and that you have to step through the different versions to get to the latest, otherwise risk bricking.
No, it shouldn't matter what version you're using. Just be sure to use the correct version for your model: F100 or F200.
Also, is there a new version of Open2X due out soon?? I see this current release is from april. Is Open2X still being actively developed?
Right now it's only mainly only being worked on by me and there are still some bugs to fix and features I'd like to add. I can't say when the next version will be out as I have a busy job and will be doing a long hiking trip and be away from a computer for about half a year this summer so who knows. I just fixed the SDHC bug hopefully, and that was last week. I am also working on a cool GP2X port of a famous SHUMP game that I think everyone will be surprised to see and also maybe happy to see.
