Omgmog,

     What is the best software to make a jpeg into a 320x240 16bit bmp everytime I try with software it locks up at boot screen :(


Personally I use Adobe Photoshop, but if you want a free alternative you could use Paint.NET or The Gimp.

I'm sure both of those alternatives will have an option for saving as 16bit bmp

Could you use the language strings from NinJato?

I tried adding them myself but I keep ending up with a Dingoo that hangs at the bootscreen.
So I'm running original 1.2 again.  :P

I am still puzzled about the very last entry "Pieces". Pieces of what? Do you think they mean "Parts"?

I don't think it's even used on the Dingoo, but just a part of the default MP4 player firmware (for the Ingenic chip inside the Dingoo).

EDIT: The first time I chose dark white, I expected gray. I was like "what the fuck" when it went cyan.

Yes it will. Try: "Image --> Scale image". Then: "File --> Save as --> Windows bmp image --> tick Advanced options --> 16 bits R5G6B5" (make sure the filename ends in ".bmp"). Photosnob is heavily overrated, costs a fortune and is a much to heavy application for something as banal as photo editing.

Updated to 1.2a with new strings

Dingoonity firmware 1.2a for Dingoo-A320

Created by omgmog for Dingoonity.org

Changelog:
-------------------------------------------
15/november/2009 - Updated with new Strings courtesy of NinJato
08/november/2009 - First version released


About:
-------------------------------------------

This firmware is a modified version of the 1.2 firmware for the Dingoo.

It features fixed/corrected strings for the menu, and custom theme support.

Included is the "PSPingoo" theme from http://www.dingoo-digital.com/forums/theming/psdingoo-theme-v1-psp-xmb-theme-dingoo

Installation:
-------------------------------------------

1 - Copy the a320.hxf and the 'SYSTEM' directory to the root of your Dingoo's internal memory.

2 - Reboot the dingoo and hold down on the dpad while the Dingoo boots.


If you can't install using this method because the Dingoo says that you've already got this firmware version, you can use this guide to install using the Dingoo Firmware Flasher - http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-hacks/guide-flashing-custom-firmwares-to-your-dingoo/

After installation of the firmware using the firmware flasher, the Dingoo might seem stuck on the "Dingoonity" splash screen. You should be able to access your Dingoo internal memory by USB, so you can put the 'SYSTEM' directory onto the internal memory.

Excellent work!
I hope no one starts to miss the Engrish… It was kinda’ cute, in a way.

:P

Edit:
I like your change from Manager to Browser (TXT file updated), and I found one remaining "No File!" and changed it to "No File found".

I think next update you should put "Version: 1.2b - Dingoonity.org"... The boot screens are nice so why not continue through?

 ;D

Edit-Edit:
I noticed you have so many bytes free (removing unused strings), that there is no need to abbreviate. You could easily spell out Seconds, Minutes, Hour, etc.

Heh, yeah..

All of that pedometer stuff is useless to the Dingoo firmware, so it got deleted! :P

I will make some further changes tonight :)
