@Stephanie: I don't think that it's usefull to pump up the dingoo at default 400mhz. Normally in Menu you dont need that much and in gmenu2x you can overclock for every single app.

Please make a normal one using 336mhz.

I thought the A330 was supposed to run at 400MHz?  Wasn't that part of the hardware upgrade?

It took less than a minute for me to do but for some reason even after formatting and using the new zimage file it just freezes at the dingux screen. Ive tried three different cards and three different adapters. I tried formatting the sd in linux,  and using the panasonic formatter, and formatting from a command prompt using format x: /FS:fat32 /A:32k. I'll look into it a little more when I get home. I will try my other card that is running in my a320 at home and let you know.

Were you using the linux or the windows installer?
Which SPL did you try? Linux-priority or Native-priority?
Is it Dingux that you cannot boot, or is it Native that you cannot boot, or both?

So how long need this install more then 5Min?

It sounds like something is not going correctly. It should take less than a minute.

I suggest you stop, reset, and start the whole process over again.

Hi,

I think that the windows dual-boot loader has some probs with specific USB chip sets.

I had the same prolem than rikku2000:
The flash-loader starts but immediately (under 1 second) the screen turns white and the loader was finished.
I tried all varintants (linux, native or default loader).
I tried it on two PCs, both with VIA USB chip set.
One PC runs under WIN XP Home, the other under Win 7 32 Bit, not difference in the behaviour.
I seems that not all bytes were written and after all it was not possibe to boot any Dingux-SD (hangs in the DINGUX startup screen).

I could intstall the boot-loader under Linux (Ubuntu) without probs and now my Dingux-SDs run fine...

I had the same issues with the dual-boot loader under my A320, it needs 4-5 attempts to flash the loader correctly. But then it works. With the new loader I had no chance (tried more than 10 times...)

Looking into the USBBoot.cfg results in non understandable values (EXTCLK 12 MHz, CPUSPEED    228 Mhz !?).
Maybe these values do not run with all USB chipsets.

Regards,
Achim

The EXTCLK is the speed of the crystal in the dingoo, which is 12MHz. The CPUSPEED is the speed that the dingoo runs at during the installation. I'd used faster values eg. 336MHz but found some problems with usbboot at that speed; sometimes it wouldn't run at all, so I set the speed lower for the install.

You can experiment with CPUSPEED but the EXTCLK should not be changed.

@Stephanie: The hardware isn't upgraded. Its the same cpu. I think its better to run with 336mhz and only clock higher if needed. Its really not needed for boot or menu and this also saves the batteries a lot.

Hi Stephanie,

Sent you an email, but I am also having the same issue... I've tried native and dingux as the default boot methods, I've tried multiple times, and each time I'm left with a dingoo that either shows a blank screen (when booting native) or the dingux logo when booting dingux mode.  It wont go any further.

SD card is formatted FAT32 (8 gigs, class 2), also tried a 2 gig and 4 gig.
Windows is XP (updated service packs), and the driver installed properly (manually selected it).

I'm not sure I agree that it's failing during the writing of the loader though... because I am able to redo the flash and select spl (no boot loader) and my dingoo is back to original form... so the flash must be working to a point.  Then again the default is only 8k vs 100k for the other two choices?

Anything you can recommend or suggest?  would love to get this working.

Stephanie,

I am able to get into the native firmware and the native firmware sees the sd card and the files on it. I have tried it with linux priority and native priority. I tried formatting my working a320 card(i have an original with a different lcd) and I still get the problem so its not a card or adaptor problem. I will stop by IRC tonight and maybe we can troubleshoot further.

Did some more testing... took the time to install ubuntu on a laptop...

flash takes longer, looks as if more is happening, but same result... system boots with blank screen and backlight for native boot, dingux logo and nothing more for native dingux and no boot loader (original firmware) works fine every time.

Even tested dropping 228 and baud rate.

Hmmm. I think I'll hold off on trying this just yet. :-\

Ok. I have no problem at all and I am running smoothly.  Let me tell you guys how I have done my dual boot installation.  First, when I got my dingoo A330 I have used the GUI daul boot installer to install the dual boot.  Here is the tool that I have used to install dual boot.

http://dingoo-scene.blogspot.com/2010/03/gui-dualboot-installation-for-dingux.html


After Stephanie released her dual boot installer and the new kernal, I have used her dual boot installation tool to install dual boot on top of my pre-installed dual boot.  I didn't flash my dingoo A330 to install her dual boot.  So far I had no issues at all and everything seems working fine.  So, my advice to you all is that if you have already installed dual boot using the old procedure DO NOT flash your dingoo A330 to install Stephanie's dual boot.  Just simply run her dual boot installation tool on top of your prior installed dual boot.  I just wanted to share with you guys about my ideas and hope it will help.   :)

I think I figured out the problem. The install script is missing the command nerase 0 1 0 0 and the usbboot.cfg was different from the one I used when i tested a a earlier version.

I downloaded the tools from igenics and used the commands that were in stephanie's script and it worked. I also had to replace her usbboot.cfg file.

qbertaddict care to elaborate...? ;)

I added nerase 0 1 0 0 to each option, I see it show when running the script, and still I'm left with a non working device until I flash back to "no boot loader"
