they cloned an early version of GDEMU that had a bootloader vulnerability
even the official GDEMU users with the old bootloader version cannot update to the latest software version
draw conclusions gentlemens

i think you are wrong here megavolt85. those gdemu's that had problems when updating the bootloader to v2 there is the latest bootloader.fw that can update even those. but clone is just a clone even with the same atmul chip the brick is most likely.

Whaouh @megavolt85 you 're not familiar with this, I'm shocked :lol:


As truemaster1 said, it looks every one can update his "official" gdemu.
It means clones sucks more than we thought.

come on now that was a joke. if you try update the clone at leat make sure the atmul chip is same as original gdemu, and yes if you can dump and flash back the ic with a programer that would be good.
