GP2X Starter Pack

GP2X f200

GP2X Starter Pack with all of the most popular games, best emulators and essential tools pre-installed for the console.

The GP2X is a Linux-based handheld video game console developed by GamePark Holdings, released on November 2005.
The console is long dead, but for all of you that just found back their GP2X in a drawer (like I did), well, this pack might be for you!

History

This software pack was originally meant for GP2X beginners, but 15 years later, its also great for software preservation!
It includes the most popular games, best emulators and essential tools pre-installed for the console.
While you definitely can't buy a new console, you might have just found your long lost GP2X in a drawer.

This pack is compatible with all GP2X hardware (MK1, MK2, F200).
Firmware version 2.0.0 or higher is recommended. Open 2x firmware is supported as well.

How to

Find an old SD card, unzip this starter pack and with a couple of new AA batteries later, you're ready to go!
Preferably, use an empty 512MB (or more) SD memory card.
