dingoo firmware version ?
« on: November 01, 2009, 02:20:01 am »
Hello,
Got my dingoo 3 days ago

I look under system set->about :

it shows version v1.2.

Is this the latest official version ?

Is there a way to backup the firmware? (not just the folders)

regards

You do not need to back up the native firmware.

What you can install is a dual-boot system, that preserves the native firmware, and allows you to choose to boot up in native Firmware, or Dingux.

The same system allows you to later flash back to just native firmware (that is, get rid of Dingux if you want...but who'd want to...)

Have a look at this link, and follow the guide completely, and you shopuld be flying Dingux in no time.  I'm a complete moron when it comes to this stuff and I was able to flash my Dingoo with the dual boot installer using this guide...

"The complete Idiot's Guide To Installing Dingux"
http://www.dingoo-scene.com/TheCompleteidiotsGuidetoDinguxWindoze.htm

One thing, though...if possible, try to use a computer running XP to do this...some Vista users did report problems.  and I know nothing about those running Windows 7.  Just use a compy that runs XP if you can.


If I have helped you today, please give me karma, thanks.

You can find the latest firmware over at http://www.dingoo-digital.com/downloads/firmwares

As you have 1.02 at the moment, you could either upgrade to 1.1 (the latest official firmware), or a modified/custom firmware 1.03TD-3

I'm pretty sure he was just asking if the firmware version on his Dingoo was the latest, not asking how to install Dingux, and it's rude to ask people for karma ;)

Please try to ensure that you keep on topic.

I misunderstood his request then.

and if it's rude to ask for karma..then why does someone have a request for karma phrased just like mine...in their signature line?

You've now gone offtopic again :P
It's rude because people don't request karma, it is awarded because people want to award it, not because it has been asked for.

It's fine to have it in your sig, infact that's a great idea, but asking in your posts adds unceccessary offtopic fluff to the topic, and as you can see now, it causes the topic to become siderailed.

Are you sure it says 1.2? and not 1.02?

1.2 would be nice.  ;D That would show that Dingoo-Digital cares about us (a little).  :D
If it?s really 1.2, any differences? Maybe a new emulator, or a language pack again?

Mine is saying 1.2 too. Maybe that means 1.02?

I don't think so. Mine says V1.1 and it is 1.10.

So that's cool, I wonder what's new :)

EDIT:
Ok for anyone of you with 1.2:
* See if the Y/B button issue is still present (Y and B cannot be pressed at the same time). Check this with any emulator or this app. (Although let's not get too optimistic here....)
* How many languages do you have? (1.10 has 6 languages)

Hi,
My version is V1.2  not 1.02.
Dingux is great but it seems everyone is linuxifying every handheld.
I liked the short bootup time.

The Y/B buttons are working well using the ControlTest.app.
All combination works as indicated.

Is there something specific I'm looking for?

X key held down for more than 5 secs exits program. That is intended I believe.
The english menus still littered with bad spelling though. (I'm Singaporean and reads Chinese)
I'm ashamed to show it to my colleagues with psp.

The only thing I'm interested in is if the program says both B pressed and Y pressed at the same time when you hold both those buttons.
Because on firmware 1.10, when you hold Y, and press B, the Y button will not be pressed anymore in the program, even though you still press it.

The hold X thing to exit is by design, it works in almost all Dingoo games.

EDIT:
Oh and which languages does it include? :)

I wonder if they updated the emulators. Can someone with 1.2 upload them for us? Would be nice to see if the checksums changed.

My firmware has 9 languages. And I think Y and B is working, because I played Mario on NES Emulator and there was no problem. Will check it again later.

Best way to check is in Super Mario Land, the first level to the right. Just pick up the shell and try to jump. If you can do that without remapping the buttons the problem is fixed :)

I have no idea how to backup / dump a firmware. However we could always bug kswildeside ;)
He has some contacts with Dingoo Digital.
I'll direct him to this thread.
