Great. Release. Can I install this with Dingux? Or will it conflict?
No problem w/ Dingux (dual boot). :)
Finally got me a new Dingoo after I Kentucky ~~::fried::~~ the other one. Yippee! [edit] And lost it!

Were dvix, xvid and other video decoders updated or optimised in this new release?

Love it!

If it had complete English translation it would be perfect!

So... I spent the whole day translating everything that Dingoo Patcher v0.6 (hxftool.exe), would allow.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar were all addressed. I flashed my Dingoo about 30 times to make sure everything looked good.

I am still awaiting my SD Card, so I'm not 100% sure about the Text that deals with it. I will post any changes I find after I receive my Card.

I am not an English Professor, but I hope it helps.

Please use this (or feel free to make changes), as my thanks to you!

Just wondering, what's the "pedometer" part in there all about?

It's in the package listed in the flashing tutorial by omgmog.

Yeah... It was on page two of this post.

omgmog:
You can get hfxtool here - http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?omy0rh2mtkm

As for the pedometer, it appears that the firmware was prepared to count how many footsteps you took when you go for a walk or jog... I am not sure if there is hardware inside that allows the Dingoo to count "impacts", but it is in the software. I also noticed that it was going to be able to tell time as well. There are a lot of references to "time & date". Some people say that the Dingoo is under-clocked to prolong battery life, but I have a feeling that it was under-clocked to be more stable. After they under-clocked it, the clock might not have keep accurate time. When you over-clock the Dingoo, it is hard to navigate through menus as it over shoots what you are trying to select. Maybe it was under-clocked for the menu system to be easier to navigate... Lots of "strange" stuff in there.

NinJato, on your text file there's a string wrongly spelled: "Rencent Videos"

Thanx! Me fix... Make good!

Edit:
Just chucked it into a word processor and came up with this too:
Unknow should be "Unknown"
Serching for FM Stations... should be "searching"
Jump To Page 100 should be "to"

Edit:
No MINISD Card! changed to No "Memory" Card (a lot of people use micros)
Music Background Pic changed to "Pic."
File not Found! changed to "found"

Edit:
Animation Picture, now "Animated"
Left Direction, now "Move Left"
Internal Memory Immunity, now "Immunize Internal Memory"

(...that should do it  :) )

You can "personalize" your Dingoo by changing this line:
Version: 1.21 English - (Add your Name and/or Phone Number for Security.)

ex:
Ver. 1.27e - Keith Black - NinJato (34 characters maximum)

Note: Make the line 4 characters less if you want it to look centered!

The text file has been updated.

I was pretty tired after flashin' the Dingoo about 30 times, trying to figure out where the duplicate fields went in the GUI. If the text field is too long on the main menu, it gets cut off (anything over 13 characters will disappear on sub menus (ex: RecordRadioSt... )). This also happens in setup menus as well. I still need to check the SD Chip text when I get it, but she's goin' to be perfect... Me love you long time!

You can not.
Hopefully customized firmware will use this in the future and you won't have to do it.
:)

I just use Ctrl+C (copy) and Ctrl+V (patste)... it's faster (that's how I made the TXT file in the first place).

What you are seeing is the Dingoo boot loader, and then the custom boot screen.

Usual boot is like

*switch on* > Blue paw > shiny paw (default boot)

With Dingux it would be like

*switch on* > Dingux > Blue Paw > shiny paw (default boot)

As far as I'm aware, the blue paw boot logo is not easily changeable as it's part of the ccpmp.bin boot file that boots the Dingoo menu.

Ok so its normal then :-0

*switch on* > Dingux > Blue Paw > shiny paw (default boot) is what i get  ;)

Thanks for clearing the up omgmog - ruffnutts....

BTW - would be nice if someone could make a seprate boot screen patcher for
The custom firmware - so we could change when we feel like it  ;)

Actually, if you manage to make an .ANI file of it, you can use the ChinaChip flashing tool, which has a bootscreen changing feature. .ANI also seems to suggest that you can actually animate the bootscreen if you do it right...

As far as I'm aware, the .ani is the same thing that gets replaced when we use a custom .bmp (as a .ani is just sequential bmp frames), you would still get the blue paw before it shows the .ani bootscreen.

Oh, I thought he meant "to be able to change the bootscreen without replacing the firmware".
