Wow, did I get screwed or what?
« on: May 04, 2012, 03:15:12 PM »
So I was one of the original A380s who bought mine through a website that won't be named. The device ran like a turd, so I put it in a drawer and bought a Cannoo instead. So I thought about it the other day and thought, maybe I'll work on it and give it to a friend, so I went to turn it on, and it wouldn't turn on. So I thought, what the hell. I'll open it up and fiddle around with it.

So I've opened it up, and according to WHERE there should be a Micro SD card inside, I just have a chip.

Mine must be an absolute turd unit. Pretty pissed that I got screwed.

You didn't get screwed. You've got one of the first batches with the MiniOS firmware. I think they switched from Nand to a MicroSD to let it run Dingux. The Dingoo A-380 and A-320e don't support running Dingux from Nand.

Source README-320e:

Quote
NOTICE: If you want to change the source, pls read the following first:

For the first batch of 320e board, because Ingenic JZ4755 donot support the nand (12bit ecc, 218bit OOB) under linux, so we need to put kernel&rootfs to TF card/MMC1, the boot step is: uboot(on nand) to boot minios/linux, minios img are on nand, linux img& rootfs are on tf card, pls do it yourself.


Maybe you can try to make it dual boot MiniOS and Dingux for the Dingoo A-320e.
Dingoo A-380 CFW V2.11.09 "RetroDD" - 2 x SanDisk SDHC 32GB Class 10 MicroSD Inside - 2 x Dingoo F-16 Wireless Game Controller

It's irrelevant at this point, the POS won't turn on.

Never been dropped, and has no reason not to, but it won't.
