How did you get it on the F200? Did you just install the F100 version? Or did you compile your own F200 version from the SVN? I understood that the video hardware is different so the F100 version would produce no display.
I'd like to have a go at it on my F200 and I don't actually care for the touchscreen atm. I think for what I'm using the GP2X for, the advantages of open2x are more important than the touchscreen.
copy the content of the patch on your SD and press sart+select during reboot to finish the installation.atomicthumbs said:Mine is also stuck on "mount root FS". Help!

Disclaimer: I do take Orkie's advice seriously when he says that it's not recommended for F200 at this stage. And others should too. But I did it anyway, because I'm big and ugly enough to deal with any negative outcomes. Thankfully, all went ok.
I was already considering the same, thinking along the same lines. And considering that even when it would brick, I could unbrick it since I have the cradle, the cables and the software and all has already been tested working. So no real risk here.
The only thing keeping me from beating you in the race is the fact that the archive was offline for a few days and I didn't download the files before.
I must say, I'm quite impressed by the outcome. Boot time is fabulous if all you're used to is 4.0.0 or higher boot times (almost an eternity). It all looks smooth and slick and as far as I've tested, it's working marvellous!
To Orkie, Senor Quack and anyone else involved, fantastic job. I can't imagine how much thought, sweat and spare time has gone into this. So, thank you for all your work.
I haven't done any extensive testing yet. I've run several apps without issues so far, and a couple that didn't work. I'll take notes along the way, hopefully any feedback I give will be relevant to Open2x on the whole and not just the F200.
It's a little bit exciting to see it anyway. B)
I second that, will provide feedback (when appropriate) too! Btw. I'm not missing the touchscreen yet
MESSAGE TO ALL F200 USERS:
You can safely try this. Just follow the directions in the readme closely, because I think most problems mentioned by other users come from not booting the 2nd time in update mode before doing a normal boot. Install both files from the first post and you should be OK. You can always revert to original firmware by putting a 4.0.0 or 4.0.2 (depending on your F200 model) on the card and entering update mode. As far as I've tested, the flashing process is fully safe.
