It's simple everyone buying direct from Hong Kong and China resellers has a 50/50 chance of getting an HK model. When Dingoo-Digital China sells units to a HK/China based retailer they can't control where or to whom those resellers sell the units to.

 It sucks but it's a fact you should do research and ask the reseller before you order what model it is what the serial number is when dealing with a reseller from HK/China.

You might also ask if the unit is pawed or unpawed as unpawed units do not have a serial number on the case that is visible.

So if they tell you unpawed and no serial number it's more then likely and current export model that people want and not an HK only model...

Your best bet but alittle more expensive is to buy from a reseller in your own country or a reputable reseller that has a record of supplying the proper units to it's customers.

-It seems the golden Dingoo days are already, sort of, over.  :'(

Yes and no.

Yes in that you can't simply "buy a Dingoo" without going in forewarned and forearmed with information about models and sellers as many of us did originally. (We will stroke our collective beards and chuckle about the "good old days")

No in that there is more cool "stuff" available for Dingoo now than there ever was before!

It makes the game harder for new players, but the game (and the gaming) is still most definitely on! :D

Sigh...
Got a fifth Dingoo for a friend from ChinaVasion today. It's the @^$%#&% HK model.

Hooked it to USB and instantly got the "white screen of death"... Can not be turned off... Can not be reset (even if you hold "B").

Sent it back... Contact shipper before ordering.

 :(

the problem with dingux (and all os installed on a sd card) is: it will never have the possibility to access the tv and radio functions.

I don't see why Dingux couldn't support the TV-Out and radio hardware (or the internal mic for that matter). It's just that there aren't any dingux/linux drivers for any of that particular hardware at the moment. That doesn't mean it will never happen.

For example, a few weeks ago Dingux didn't have the capability to use the Dingoo's RTC (real-time clock) functions. Now, there's an updated zImage that allows that. As more is understood about the hardware, more features can be added to Dingux.

Ask if the serial number ends with HK. If it does, BEWARE!!11!  ;D

Where do you find the serial #. I read that it is near the USB port. Mine has nothing near the USB port. Is it on the inside of the case?

Serial number looks like this on the Chinese HK Dingoos.

Unpawed Export Dingoos don't have a serial printed there.

So i should ask if the Dingoo is the Export unpawed version? Because i was gonna buy it on ebay since the prices are lower, it comes with the silicon skin and the official bag. You think that the sllker knows about these things? He is actually selling 5 Dingoos and tons of Lingerie =D

You run the risk of getting a crappy Chinese Dingoo when you buy from Ebay. Chinese Dingoo's are cheaper, why do you think the Ebay prices are lower?
It's not worth it just to save a few bucks, and no the seller probably doesn't know about these things, it seems like a lot of resellers don't.

At the end of the day, you usually get what you pay for...

So maybe i should buy it directly from Deal Extreme? And, in this case, am i sure that they are gonna send me the right one? (i mean the export unpawed version)

So those older 4gb pawed dingoos are still worth their original sale price, and perhaps a little more?

Not that I intend on selling mine anytime soon, but that's good to know.

Also, sorry if this has been answered, but these chinese dingoos that everyone is avoiding are for the chinese market? Interesting.
