right, so if you turn on the dingoo while holding b, to put into usb reflash mode, it then installs the correct drivers for you? last i checked there wasn't any working 64 bit windows drivers

but what do i know, i've only reflashed and messed around with my dingoo about 20 times

Oh, that.  Nah, when I put in USB mode manually it doesn't recognizes it, but if I just plug it on my comp, it works perfectly.

Well to reflash a dingoo, it needs to be in reflash mode, else you can't modify the firmware area on the nand, which is sort required for flashing the firmware :p so either run xp on something, and use the unbricker/similar, or patch the hxf so it'll think you're upgrading

Well, my About screen says it upgrades just fine, the firmware upgrade window that appears when I'm upgrading says it upgrades just fine.  The fonts, emulators & stuff change when I upgrade to something that has different fonts, emulators & stuff.

Everything seems to tell me it upgrades just fine except you.  Who should I trust, material proofs or you?

Look, I'm sure somebody in this forum still has 1.00 so can he just upload it?

There are two ways to change your firmware.

1. The standard hold down on the dpad method. It only works if the firmware you're upgrading to is newer than the one you have (by timestamp). There is some kind of application to modify an old firmware and trick the dingoo into thinking it's newer, don't know it's name.

2. The alternative way which darfgarf is talking about, which is much more of a hassle, check this thread (just skip the modify firmware part) http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-hacks/guide-flashing-custom-firmwares-to-your-dingoo/

Hunh?  I've always used the first method and it works whether it's a newer firmware or an older one.

but maybe something got stuck in that process, that's why a new clean flashing may help.

Soooo... I should upgrade my firmware from 1.22 to 1.22?

Sounds like you have a HK Dingoo, did you try the HK patched emulators?

Oh wait, the emulators work (mostly), but are slower than before? That?s weird indeed, never heard of that before. The HK fixed emus may be worth a shot though.
The most important fix after 1.03 was the Y/B-button problem btw, there are some improvements.  ;D

If HK stands for Hong Kong, then yea, I have a HK Dingoo.  And yeah, it worked perfectly when it was 1.00, with a few exceptions being 20% of SNES & GBA games running slower & having a few sound issues.

Yes, HK stands for Hong Kong. The general idea was, that HK Dingoos are models for the inner chinese market, but there are many more theories... Big drama when the first unpawed Dingoos were discovered.  ;D
 How old is your Dingoo? I think you?re the first who actually had the 1.00 firmware, even back in May 09 everybody had at least 1.02 iirc. The first unpawed ones surfaced a few months after i got mine, i?d say July 09, and they all had a higher version number too i think. Maybe (big maybe) you got a prototype Dingoo?  ??? Unlikely, but who knows...

Also you could simply downgrade to 1.03 and then up to 1.22, the updater only checks if the firmware is the same, not if it?s older/newer. Your problems might persist though. Since everything (except the emus) works perfect (does it? radio, tvout, video, music etc.), try the HK emulators.  :)

I must say i don?t get your problem fully, 20% of games ran slower before (1.00), 80% run slower/don?t run now (1.22)?

I've used the HK Fix all went back to normal.  I even went back to 1.20pof & it still works like it did in 1.00.

Thanks a lot eule, Karma +1.

Now to find a way to make these 20% SNES/GBA games work properly...  or maybe there are some games that just don't work on Dingoo?

Here's a link showing what does and doesn't work - native OS.

Thanks, all the game I noticed didn't work are in there.  Guess my Dingoo works perfectly then.  But damn, some of these games are awesome, such a shame they don't work.  Karma +1, problem solved, thread to be closed.

Cool, that?s nice! Looks like Dingoo-Digital put something into their firmware to make HK-Dingoos functioning worse.
Could make a James Bond movie about this.  8)
