We're not quite sure what exactly has changed in this "second edition" GP2X, but Lik-Sang decided to hold off on distributing the open-source handheld until it was available, citing firmware troubles and "broken or malfunctioning units." We guess Lik-Sang is confident these problems have been remedied, since they've begun selling the GP2X Second Edition as of today.

They are also selling a TV-out cable, turning that diminutive handheld into a big screen emulation station! Any GP2X users experiencing any troubles with your "first edition" units? Anyone else put off their purchase until now?
