GP2X Firmware 1.4.0 is available and gp2x.com finally has a nice new English web site (actually it’s still more or less “engrish”). I installed the firmware update with no ill effects. The update only took a few seconds and I didn’t brick my GP2X.
The new firmware is a very big improvement. E-book reader has lots of improvements and Explorer is now useful – you can now move, rename, or delete files. The battery light works and it increases the battery life dramatically.
