I just bought a Everdrive GB-X7 , but....
« on: February 21, 2018, 04:00 PM »
When I opened it was X7 Rev A?  I thought I would get a Rev B.  Should I be worried that it's a older rev?  I paid £129 for it.  Is there a big difference from Rev A to Rev B?


I use it on my GBASP and my Super Gameboy 2 on my Super NT.

Thanks

Rev B
just fix bootup problem on GameBoy Pocket system.

Rev A
you would need jumpstart (on, off, on quickly) on GBP to make EDGBX bootup.

I won’t be using a gameboy pocket anytime soon. So Rev A is ok then.

Thanks

Yes, the OS updates will be fully compatible with both, AFAIK.

The Rev.B is related to the problem of Game Boy Pocket only.
And only some Game Boy Pockets are affected.
As long as you don't care about Game Boy Pockets then it's definitely ok.

That makes me feel better.  I was going to send it back, but I doubt I would ever use a GBP.  So if it's no different then rev b other then that then I'll just keep it and be happy.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Cheers  :)
