You don't see the problem because you never had to deal with getting proprietary drivers to work on a non supported Linux kernel. PowerVR is notorious for that. The only way to get it to work is to switch to Android.

I thought about that. I've asked irenetea to let us know what's possible and what isn't possible. Maybe it isn't possible to build a Dingux console with the JZ4780.

well,

i want a powerful console to emulate psx and n64 with no issues.. Sony PSP is not good at n64.. so n64 emulation and an Analog stick separated frm d-pad can bring more customers..
4.3" scrn is quite good.. scratch resistant body..

analog stick right under the d-pad (just like gcw 0).. with wireless controller support, f-16 controllers support with easy connectivity(not like hassle with a380 to connect wireless controllers)
best TV out performance with HDMI support..
internal bluetooth to pair with wide range of other wireless controllers, OTG support..
changeable internal memory card (like A380). changeable battery (like Mobile Phones)..

last, but not least, open source software...

As long as you ship a Phantom, eh GCW-like console
and make it available worldlwide with plenty of stock
you will sell a lot

General Consoles Worlwide and their awful customer care
is clearing the way for a new Dingoo.

It will all be forgiven I'm thinking.

I had a 4 year wait with my Pandora, and what do I do? I preorder an icp2 from the exact same company and I lost track of when I ordered that, but no end in site for that preorder as well.

I will say, while I haven't forgotten the wait time of the Pandora, it stopped mattering to me once I got it, and still suggest people buy one.

The zero will be no different.

i really don't think so ,
if you get to choose between 2 similar products,

one ready to go
the other,

well , let's not talk about the other...

why would you choose the hard/problematic route?

What i mean is,
the new Dingoo does not even have to be better , just Phantom performance,
but ready to ship once you press BUY

I agree a lesser device that's available now is more enticing than a more powerful one that's not available.

My comparison for that was when I bought a caanoo while I was waiting for my pandora, the caanoo arrived in a few days. I played it quite a bit, but I always saw it as something to fill a buffer, even thought it's a solid choice as a "do all" device in it's self.

I know some will see one or the other, and I agree if someone releases something comparable that fills the niche the GCW has, it may eat into their sales. But at this point it's kinda late in the game. This is really honestly the end of the wait. I'm driving out to help justin next weekend to flash devices and get them out the door. The endless wait is over.

Would it be enough for most of us to switch over? (hobbists/collectors/sceners) Don't really think so, I think most would end up just getting both.

Would it effect the lurkers and people just looking for a handheld? Very much yes, price, availability, function, then performance, in that order is what's important to those types of people. Where I feel my priorities are the exact reverse of that, price and availability are kinda the least of my worries.

On top of what everyone said already, I'll add dedicated keys for menu, volume, etc, and a price tag under 100USD.

A dedicated dingoo online matchmaking service. I'd like to play Ice Climber with someone from Portugal while taking a shit in Singapore.

i would like to see more devices with a neo geo pocket or neo geo cd style dpad and a suitable way to play shmup games vertically like the wonderswan did with easily accessable buttons. For my next device i want something with a nice button layout and responcive controls mainly, power is not everything.

If the next console has support for the F-16 wireless controllers all we would need is something like the Gameklip. If it's possible to turn the console 90 degrees there's no problem anymore to play vertical shooting games.


I also wanted something like that for the Dingoo A-380.

Who said the new Dingoo will be a "lesser device" than the phantom fiasco?

Don't take it as offense, but a380 is a real fiasco despite having ok hardware. If it's hard to accept gcw-zero success, I can't help you.

It's all simple: the current niche is taken by gcw-zero. To make new Dingoo succeed, it has to have better software and os and nevertheless be somehow compatible with gcw-zero. Otherwise it would be another dead-end shit like neogeo-x (again despite having good hardware). If DT has enough money and reason to hire some programmers (strictly from Europe or US), then good luck. But I doubt it.

crappy dingux from ingenic at first, totally rewritten opendingux later
You have meant "wonderful dingux from excellent hardware reverse engineer booboo, who made everything from scratch, later buggy opendingux with barely working ALSA after 2 years of development". Learn history before posting nonsense, dude.

without android
installed dualboot
3-3,5" 800x600 or 640x480, ips or oled (amoled)
add 2 buttons (ABCXYZ), 2 sticks
Full 1 Usb and Bluetooth (for gamepad; keybord; mouse)
HDMI and AV-port
more ram, more ghz, more battery life
PSX, DOS (DOSBOX), N64 and other emulators

Maybe 2 versions?
1)like a-320
2)like Pandora? Mini PC?

You mean Ingenic's own kernel with some bits from booboo. Learn history before posting nonsense, dude.
