    OK, that's kind of useless to me, my K101 hasn't been acting strange except for the volume control and the aforementioned crashes, it would be a shame because the only way I could upgrade to the new one is buying in bulk which I cannot and the price of the dollar is higher now.

    If possible, can you send me the link of the post? I can translate for you. Now Maxzhou and the factory is busy on producing the Revo K101 new batch. I think there might be something wrong on the software translation. The oversea customers are always our main targets. We will not ignore them. PM me for any issues you got. I will get you back as soon as I can. Thanks.

    I nearly forgot about this thread...

    I do owe Maxzhou an apology. I was able to get a friend to translate the page I was originally looking at. It seems he was talking about some of the outrageous request posters were making and how dumb they were. And it seems he had some quality consistency with one of the screen manufacturers and has switched suppliers.

    It is very normal to have the misunderstanding since we speak different language. All things will be cleared if we communicate well. For Revo k101 plus- yes this is the new version, we work very hard to bring people great products. Below we show you the latest video that we took for Revo k101 plus multi-linking play:

    New release or not, I'm not getting suckered again. The K101 must be the worst bit of plastic I've ever bought...

    I ran into another problem, quite related to the one about Yggdra Union apparently, I was playing an mp3 file and the Revo constantly froze at a certain point, the only way to turn it off was to do a hard reset. (with a needle)

    Until you tire of it completely and put in a drawer somewhere, the needle is a K101 Revo owners best friend.

    Still I never got those freezes before but sometimes I think is the microSD or something since I got them when I was putting some games after some time of not using it, and well, my volume dial is still giving me trouble, I tried to check if the soldering was loose but apparently not, I added some more but is still the same, so maybe is the dial itself which I don't know how to dismount or replace.

    3. Reduced default screen brightness. Changes in brightness are now more pronounced.

    4. Battery capacity has been increased from 600mAh to 800mAh.

    I have my revo k101+ ordered and while I wait I was curious what cheat support this device uses and can I add my own cheats? I am particularly looking at megaman Battle Network 5 team colonel & proto man eReader Bass cross forms. Could someone tell me if it uses GameShark or what?

    It uses its own cheat engine apparently, I could not find a way to translate any of my AR codes to it.

    It does, however, you have to saw the prongs off and find a way to hold it steady plugged in or it falls out easily is what I have read for it.

    wireless adapter doesn't work for me.

    if you enter the union room, the revo screen will turn off.

    Try it with the newer plus model. I heard old revo k101 units were rather buggy.
