    How do you currently launch your CFW? If you use the SX Pro, you can get the SX Gear boot.dat, flash the Android image to a new SD card, then copy that boot.dat to the first partition along with the hekate payload, change the name of that payload to "payload.bin" and use the SX Pro to boot it.

    This was via the Social Club one. So you'll either need that or on Steam. Which costs like 10 bucks these days i think

    :( this guy has borderlands 2 working but he hasnt said how thats even possible. He is using a bought version from the play store as far as I can tell. I have bought it too but still its not verifying..if anyone speaks Russian maybe they can translate something on his video.

    I haven't tried that game. People have reported good frame rates (I think?), so I would see their reports. Check your settings and make sure you're using the mmj build and the highest clock setting. Also underclock the emulated CPU until you have steady audio (at least for a baseline) Some people are running PAL roms or 30fps cheats as well.
