Just to put this thread to bed, I have the Cradle working fine with my GP2X now.
I wish I could report somethiing more substantial as a solution though.
I went through a 3 FW changes and had no joy. I then thought I'd managed to kill the GP2X as I could not get it to boot at all.
I'm using the powersupply I got from GP2X when I bought my GP2X to power the GP2X and a third party 5v 2a powersupply for the cradle.
I am guessing its either a faulty cradle of power supply, i'm going to have a look for one later - if anyone can reccomend one online then I'd be grateful.
:( to Nickmon
Further info is
Batteries in and out and tried with power supply both ways
Cradle with and without power.
Cradle with and without any devices plugged in (USB and TV out).
Inserted GP2x into cradle on and off with all variations of above.
Firmware 1.4 2.0 2.1 3.0
all no go...
Hope its just me but the cradle crashes my GP2X when its put on it. Dosnt matter if GP2X is on or off when inserted either. When the GP2X is lifted off the cradle it reboots. Firmare 2.11, it was crashing the same on 2.0 as well.
Nova: Theres little need to call me an arsehole and personalise the whole issue. You base that on no knowledge of me at all barring my post here, to be honest it sounds like you are angrier than me.
The point you raise about comparing me to Craig is totally spurious, I didn't attack the guy...
I see in other threads that this might not be all its advertised to be. I WILL excercise my consumer rights if it isn't.
I ordered 4 days ago under the fact that the gp2x store in the UK claimed to have them in stock and them ready to send. If I don't have confirmation or dialogue initiated...
On readng this thread I find I'm not alone in my irritation that the GP2X shop in the UK says they have an item available and allow you to order it when its not even released.
I say free next day shipping for all that ordered already under as a courtesy. At the very least refund the poor guys...
Yeah, I have been spreading GP2X and retro gaming joy wherever I go. Its the fledgling PS ability that has the WOW! factor of all things.
Keep it up and THANKS!
There should be a kudos vote thing or something with all the devs on it. Pay Per Vote even :P
Having had a very expensive couple of weeks I can report that:
GP2X, AC adapter, Charger and Batts, TV Out and a 2gb SD cost me 189.67 at gp2x.co.uk.
DS Silver, M3 adapter and Pass key 2, and a couple of games - £178
PSP Giga and a 4gb HD - £279.
Look on my GF's face when she see's the...
Respect to those those those that can. Kudos to those that those that do. Me? I'm strictly end-user but respectful. I love those dudes that do it and they get my attention. As soon as I get the time i'll lurk in the dev corner - until then I just drink it up.
"Picking up speed" is the...
