I thought I'd start this thread as the Powkiddy X16 thread has run to 11 pages and I can't find any info on this model other than some fluff pieces on YouTube. Does anyone else own one? Can anyone offer any advice on how to get this model halfway usable? I'm impressed with the hardware aspect, particularly for the £60 I spent at AliExpress, but the software/OS is either incompatible or totally crash happy with everything I'm using. I'm trying to use this primarily as an emulator so I can play retro-games on the go.
So far, I've removed most of the Chinese installed apps and I have figured out that I need to use Aptoide in place of Google Play services (no access) but 75% of the apps I've tried either do not start or "stop responding" shortly after boot. The locked down Android environment is particularly frustrating to use.
I've managed to get Mame4Droid working, ePSXe works great and Retroarch appears to work. Others I've tried have had poorer results: PPSSPP (crashes on game start), UAE4Droid (stops responding at boot) etc. I was hoping to use this to pass the time on an 11 hour flight next week but it looks like I'll be reverting to in-flight entertainment!
