In a previous post I mentioned that the Digi RetroBoy could be a Revo K101 equivalent if it was ever released. Instead of relying on emulation it utilises a hardware solution to play GBA games from a customised GBA cartridge with a MicroSD card inside it. It looks as though the unit is released now, although […]
I emailed this chap about 2 years ago because the Revo team wanted to send him an original unit, but he never got back to me. Well anyway, he’s got himself a crystal black Plus version now and talks a little bit about it in his latest video. Skip to 26:23 if you’re not interested in […]
You might have gotten the same promo email this morning that I did, but if not then here’s the news. The white K101+ is being phased out, and the crystal black K101+ is now available for pre-order. The price remains at $69.99 and the shop are receiving them in batches from the factory. If you’re […]
A couple of years ago the K-Team (the guys behind the hardware inside the K1 and Revo K101) were making some decent progress on a reverse engineered Nintendo DS solution. You’ve probably seen the video of their development board in action, but if not here it is.
MaxZhou88 is obviously rather enthusiastic about sharing as much as he can regarding the new K101Plus. He seems to be uploading videos daily (sometimes twice daily!) to Youku. In his latest video’s we can see that there will not only be a crystal case version of the K101Plus, but also a transparent black version […]
Well here’s a nice little update for any Revo K101 owners out there, MaxZhou88 has finally fixed the firmware bug that meant some .sav files were wiped when the console shut down. The Revo K101 is a hardware clone of the Nintendo GBA and it was released around 18 months in China. The clones boasts […]
It took exactly 1 week for my Revo K101 to travel the 6000 miles to my parents house in England. That’s an average speed of 36 miles per hour, in case you wondered. I’m used to waiting 4+ weeks at this time of year, so it was with a childish grin on my face that […]
If you’re one of the 30 or so people that pre-ordered the Revo K101 and have been waiting patiently for the last few months, you can let out that sigh of relief now. The guys at K1GBASP now have 80 units in stock, and they’ll be testing and packaging up everybody’s handhelds this weekend for […]
I just found this posted by MaxZhou88 over on the Baidu forums. I know it seems to be taking rather a long time, but it looks like it’s finally ready to go. I’d say the box art turned out pretty well, what do you think?
First of all, thanks to everybody who suggested names for the K101, the sheer amount of responses really took me by surprise and the guys in China had a very tough time choosing their favourite, hence the delay in the announcing the winner… sorry about that! It’s really great to see so many people interested […]
