I like the blue color. It's very bright indeed and with it the gpd xd looks more like a toy, but that's exactly what it is to me - a toy. ;-)
On Aptoid there is only an obsolete version of Happy Chick. I suggest to download it from the official site.
I've ordered one, too (the blue one).
Did ED anything to the OS like removing some preinstalled emulators or something to make it legal for the German/European market? And does it come with the newest firmware?
Yes. On FAT32 it refused to work, but on my ext2 sd card it booted normally. So I set everything up on my Pandora and my computer. But when I try to connect the folders on both machines Syncthing gives me the above error message.
I can't get Syncthing to work because of "bytes field exceeds size limit". I am also not able to update Syncthing via browser interface: "Automatic upgrade: couldn't fetch release information"...

To me the two extra buttons somehow look... I don't know.. wrong? We already have 4 (!) shoulder buttons. Why two additional front buttons?
Was there ever a gaming console with more than 8 action buttons?
At least it's another evidence for that you don't have to remember symbols or letters but instead the location of the gaming buttons. It's annoying when half of the menus are using the right button for 'confirm' and the lower button for 'back/close' while the other half of the menus invert this...
I'm pretty sure every gamer and tech nerd is able to differentiate between button A and the A key. It's ridiculous how lengthy these discussions are. Just keep the Pandora layout. I'd rather prefer a software solution for the 'which button/key to press' confusion which occurs when using...
