That means (in free translation) Spam this guy for a source code ;)

Note that the dual boot loader can have issues with files being placed at the end of a large SD card, so if it fails to boot, please retry with an empty card.

Doing that fixed it for me.

JkDefrag is able re-locate files to the beginning of a drive (very quickly). This is very useful for large cards with lots of data on it, if just the kernel/rootfs needs to be replaced. I used it several times for Dingux.

PS: Just make sure to invoke it with the appropriate options. Otherwise all drives will be defragmented.

GMenu2X uses bitmap fonts at the moment and it does not have Chinese characters in the font. The best way to solve it would be to implement TrueType rendering using SDL_TTF and FreeType (which are on the rootfs already), I think. GMenu2X source code is in git at Qi Hardware.

Works great! I have few questions though:

1 - The system info screens tells CPU and screen version, is it hard coded or does it read it from the hardware?
2 - Does the integrated file explorer support copy/move/rename? I couldn't figure out how to do it, so I kept DinguxCommander v2.1 which works great in the meantime.

Here is a compatibility list of the stuff I tested. When I say ??? , it means it contradicts this thread:

What do I do to compensate blueish ILI9338 display?
If you can telnet to your Dingoo (10.1.0.2, might not work from Windows), you can issue a command like this:

echo 100,100,70 > /sys/devices/platform/jz4740-fb/rgb

to select 100% red, 100% green and 70% blue.

Update: Please test whether this kernel fixes the blueish colors.

Both are read from the kernel. The CPU version is actually read from the hardware, I think, while the ILI version is determined by the kernel config at compile time. There is no way to read data from the ILI on the A320, unfortunately, since the required pins are simply not connected.

We can't really do anything against it. Slaanesh never released the sources...

I'll be recompiling some ports of mine that don't work with OpenDingux. Expect an update from me in few days.

It would be nice if all the updates now for open dingux get submitted to the openhandhelds archive in one nice place to download.

Does Stella or Dingux2600 work for anyone with this new version of opendingux? Stella worked for me with developer preview 2 but it doesn't work anymore. Just wondering if this is an isolated incident or not.

OMG I waited for this moment a long long time! Is it finally possible to get rid of the Native OS all together? I don't want to dual boot, I just want to install OpenDingux on the built-in storage. Using an SD card seems somewhat rudimentary, when there's plenty of storage to begin with.
