    Powkiddy A13

    Seems like a very decent retro-gaming device (up to PS1) that is pretty cheap. I like the form factor with joystick/buttons, but I don't like the red plastic toyish look. For that price you can't complain though and all reviews I've seen are very positive. No community around this product as far...

    Best SD card sync method slot 1->2 on the Pandora

    I' ve been playing with my Pandora's a lot lately and want to have a solid and easy stand-alone back up strategy. I want to use my Pandora's only (so not with a PC) to back up and sync SD cards. The idea is to place the original card in slot 1 and transfer the files to slot 2 - and once every...

    Bought a bunch of batteries from DragonBox. They are for sale so I guess ED is cleaning out the basement :) I am still planning on using my Pandora's for a while so nice to have enough spare batteries for the next few years.

    SD card fake/corrupt? check with f3 on slackware

    I have been playing around with Slackware see here and tried to install it on a Toshiba M203/EA 64 GB SD card. Installing Slackware didn't work on these cards only once after formatting to EXT-2 but followed by error messages and endless fsck loop. So I wanted to be sure the 5 cards I bought...

    openhandhelds file archive flooded with spam

    openhandhelds file archive flooded with spam in the comment sections. Maybe disable comments if it isn't worth maintaining it? https://www.openhandhelds.org/index.php Checked a few and they all had spam in the comment section (e.g.: https://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/gp2x.cgi?0,0,0,0,27,2934)

    WTB: Open Pandora [EU/UK] [already bought one thx!]

    Hi, Now Pyra's are being shipped maybe someone is interested in selling their unused Pandora. Not looking at other sites, rather buy one from someone from this community. I don't think shipping outside EU/UK is worth it, from the Netherlands myself - any model is fine. Condition doesn't have...

    Thread can be closed - not looking anymore

    Hi, ED has one of my Pandora's with a motherboard that is quite difficult to repair. It would simplify matters if I could buy a broken Pandora and ship that to ED to swap the motherboards. So broken cases, broken keyboard, battery issues, purple LCD screen are no problem. I also don't need...
