 Firmware V1.2.1

1. Extract and copy files to root folder of your SD
(6 files - polluxb, uImage, uImageUP, update.gz, vfat.img, wiz_ubifs.img)
* You'd better have 1GB freespace for your SD since total size is about 800MB.

2. Insert SD and turn on your Wiz with pressing R button

3. You can release R button after upgrade screeen appeared

4. Upgrade will take about 15 minutes

5. You must re-calibrate your touch-screen; the previous value is initiallized.
Besides various bugfixes, this firmware needs to be installed to play commercial games.

jordicoma: 
 How can I install this? for http://www.globalgph.com the firmware doesn't exist
id6490: 
 Fake
MrTwisT: 
 Check the forum, it's not fake.
id6490: 
 Firmware 1.2.1 doesn't exist. Higher version is 1.2.0, one dot two dot zero, not dot one dot two dot one. It's fake.
id6490: 
 Download expected: 84.94MB. Real download size=81MB. Seems bad.
Alex:

Installed just fine here, 1.2.1. Instructions:
1. Put all files from the .zip into root of SD card
2. Turn Wiz on while holding R-shoulder pressed
3. When "Firmware Upgrage" appears, let go of R and wait ~10 minutes
4. When "Firmware upgrade complete" appears, reboot Wiz
Gab75: 
 It's not a fake! Good version... I installed it and my Wiz working properly...
MrTwisT: 
 id6490, stop being arrogant and believe the people who already downloaded the firmware and checked it out. There's a whole new thread on that firmware with all the explanation WHY it wasn't uploaded to globalgph yet.
id6490: 
 Arrogant? you are smoking marihuana.
payta: 
 is any release notes available?
Darkn00b1971: 
 Trying it now. Actual file size downloaded is 81.0MB. Install ok at 25%.
Darkn00b1971: 
 Firmware confirmed successful install. Version 1.2.1 - 2009.9.2 reported in SETTINGS>Information.
Wootson: 
 Installed flawlessly within minutes. Correct firmware version is displayed at the settings information screen. Diagonal tearing is almost completely gone, but is still slightly visible in some stuff. Just do as Alex said and your GP2X Wiz will be running this latest firmware within minutes. Hooray for GPH! =)
brokedad: 
 Not worth the upgrade yet .. IMHO .. if everything works nice for you now wait for another revision
MetaGearWiz: 
 What???? Definitely worth the upgrade - removes screen tearing on nearly every application!
Flargin: 
 @id6490 Don't go calling it fake before you do some research. It is only 84.94 mb because it uses high compression. Search around on the forums and you will see EvilDragon's post about this firmware. THIS IS NOT FAKE!
Deevoh: 
 This DOES work, screen-tearing is hardly noticable.
clankfelix: 
 This worked great until the two files it creates got erased. Can someone PLEASE upload the 2 files. My system is bricked without those files.
clankfelix: 
 Reinstalling firmware fixed the problem.
dogeymon: 
 GREAT UPDATE!!! THANKS!!!
id6490: 
 Research done. It's a potentialy fake. Check gp2xwiz.co.kr firmwares for details. Sorry if trolling.
KermEd: 
 Thanks ID6490. I couldn't find the threads everyone claims exist - and it does look suspicious. I'm going to run with it for now but your input was appreciated IMO.
Nixot: 
 Installing now. A flashy firmware upgrade screen is visible and a slowly increasing red bar at the top of the screen. Can't wait till it reaches the end!
KermEd: 
 A few more details to mention. This firmware apparently flashes the entire unit - so don't reboot part way. I've heard tell that some people have bricked their units. Additionally, updating from 1.0.0 to 1.2.1 - the update never finished it just said 'Upgrading' forever. Updating from 1.1.0 to 1.2.1 finished normally.
dosn90: 
 Works fine so far, it takes less than a half hour to flash, I don't know exactly how long it took as I didn't time it. The tearing seems to be less noticeable now, and I've noticed that when I turn off the unit now, the sound quits before the video now. And as always, make sure your batteries are charged before trying to flash anything!!
Nixot: 
 Updated fine, in about five minutes. Works normally. Can't say I've had any problems with the diagonal tearing so far.
yota: 
 Installed successfully for me. However, I still see the diagonal on the screen in many apps (AlexKidd, GnGeo, etc.). Has not fixed much then on my side.
pev: 
 I lost access to the Nan drive and for some reason the updated does not complete. Any suggestions anyone? If none, I’ll switch back to the factory shipped firmware until there is a proper release. Thank you all in advance.
BEF: 
 Mise a jour avec succès. Version Stable, R.A.S
jordicoma: 
 cannot install, I have black screen or hang with GPH logo
jordicoma: 
 finally installed, the problema was the kingston sd cards I tried.
wwcoop: 
 The prompt "Firemware upgrage" does not instill confidence. :-D
da_stallion: 
 Need help please anyone! Just got a gp2x wiz and am trying to upgrade the firmware. It says my total memory of my wiz is 698mb Does that sound correct to anyone else??? The size of the 1.2.1 firmware when i extract the contents is 785mb How am i suppose to install this firmware i it cant evan fit on the systems memory??? Please help me out anyone. much appreciated.
da_stallion: 
 Forget about my last comment..... I should have read it more clearly. Firmware goes on an SD card. Deerrrrr!
brwizer: 
 Just curious, someone has the release notes of this version?
