Not long, if the previous FW updates are an example ... maybe less than a minute, for me at least.

*Note: It's now early Friday Morning (4/28) In Seoul .. maybe the GPH folks are wakng up now, eager to unleash this awesome FW to the waiting public ...

(And even more hopefully, the BoB is not far behind ... )

My GP2X is in the mail, it should come within the next few days, so ya. I just hope to get the 2x the same time as 2.0.

I can't wait for my gp2x to boot up fast!

I hope with this update we will be able to see the dancing games support dance pads and the emulators to support 2 player with external game pads. That would rock.

In the meantime we shall all format our sd cards and charge our batteries.
.. I have an AC adaptor, and a card already formatted & ready to go ...

Sad, eh? I'm very VERY excited for this; the possibility of playing MAME and other consoles on my TV using a USB Gamepad is making me crazy with anticipation.

2.0 is a few seconds slower than open2x (think it's about 14 seconds in total). You can get it a couple of seconds faster if you put art103's uboot back on afterwards though.

If it has to reflash the nand, update the uboot, and reflash the firmware, how long would all of that take?
Well, took me a few minutes AFAIR (was two weeks ago).
Not too long, but definately not as short as the previous updates.

My 2X is in Korea getting refurbished at the moment... I sent it in for excessive brightness flicker, I wonder if it will come back with one of the new LCDs?
I don't think so, as it is just a resistor that needs to be changed to fix that flickering.

so can someone list a few or all of the known updates that will be in 2.0? all I've heard is faster boot time and maybe USB actually works now?

*crosses fingers it American 28th*, its still the 27th here 10:00PM

Woogal about ar103's uboot, I mean there has to be some reason we are updating this uboot won't ar103's not have the new things? It might just be holding start+select to flash the system but even so I like that feature and will wait 2 secs longer to not have a bricked gp2x.
Anyway, even a 5 sec improvement would have made me happy this is like 15 so I am pretty stooked.
