    Well, I say "hacked." The only "hacky" part about it is rooting the device, and that's hardly a hack any more.

    I didn't even know that NoRefresh thing was a thing, I thought the flashing was inherent in the hardware.

    The games seem to run a bit slower, which is okay since that seems to offset the low refresh rate of the screen. All in all, it's pretty interesting.
