I got my GP2X on the 21st November 2005 (I expect I saw it announced on Slashdot or BoingBoing in mid September).

Info says: VERSION 1.0 MODEL GP2X - F100 S/N 2005.11.14 - GP2XV100 - 00000246

Log of getting it to work

  • To begin with, the USB was completely silent. To get it working I had to insert an SD card which had previously been written to by a card reader!
Lessons so far: Getting USB working is full of pitfalls if you don't know how to do it. An extra investment in both an SD card and a reader is necessary, alas.
The USB firmware on the GP2X is pretty unhelpful. Still, things seem to work now, and hopefully the wiki documentation is improving in the process.
Sigh. Moving backwards: in attempting to get the right format on my SD card to do an upgrade I no longer have USB access!
