Since the last community update there has been some progress in the project. Nearly all critical components arrived. The only missing part should now be the CPU, so they even got the very critical POP-memory which was hard to find. So the component "changelog" is the following:

* MT29C4G96MAZAPCJG-5 IT (512 MB RAM, 512 MB NAND Flash)
 +
* DM3730CBP (800 MHz version)

* TPS65950A3 (latest version of the power controller)
 +
* TFDU6301 (IrDA module substitutes the previous HSDL3602)

Due to two reasons the PCB layout is being reworked:
 +
* canceling out power supply issues
 +
* add shielding and tunnels for the most critical audio signals to make sure there is no buzz-fixes are needed.

[edit] GTA04EA (Early Adopter)

Since the last community update there has been some progress in the project. Nearly all critical components arrived. The only missing part should now be the CPU, so they even got the very critical POP-memory which was hard to find. So the component "changelog" is the following:

  • MT29C4G96MAZAPCJG-5 IT (512 MB RAM, 512 MB NAND Flash)
  • DM3730CBP (800 MHz version)
  • TPS65950A3 (latest version of the power controller)
  • TFDU6301 (IrDA module substitutes the previous HSDL3602)

Due to two reasons the PCB layout is being reworked:

  • canceling out power supply issues
  • add shielding and tunnels for the most critical audio signals to make sure there is no buzz-fixes are needed.

  • added RoadFighter racing game
  • added Xgalaga game
  • added GnuBoy emulator
  • added Xvier (4 in a row) game
  • fixed the problem with ubifs on nand (previous versions used to corrupt FS on NAND)
  • added bigger icons for launchers
  • improved a bit the snes9x performance

Sensmon-screen.png SensMon

SensMon is a Vala-based monitor for sensors that can be used to visualize the sensor values on the handheld (but not only). The software is very experimental and does not include any kind of exception handling. You are using it at your own risk :) Its main purpose is to test the sensors included in the Freerunner Navigation Board and Freerunner Navigation Board v2.
