Title: Guide - Flashing custom firmwares to your Dingoo
Post by: omgmog on November 08, 2009, 12:36:07 am
Warning - Messing with flashing firmware on your Dingoo can possibly brick your Dingoo. Only attempt this if you're comfortable with this.

If you currently have the Dingux bootloader on your Dingoo, and you write your custom firmware using the Dingoo Firmware Flasher, you will have to reload the Dingux bootloader on to your Dingoo to be able to boot Dingux.



Introduction
Since the release of the Dingoo, there has been a desire for custom firmwares. Some people just aren't happy with the poorly translated menus, some people just want to enable custom themes and other fancy tricks. With the release of the newest 1.2 firmware for the Dingoo there was some debate about what works and what doesn't with respect to modifying the firmware, and methods for installing modified custom firmwares.

This guide is based on the knowledge I've acquired of various firmware-related applications for the Dingoo, and lots of experimenting.

This guide assumes that you're using Windows XP, or know your way around getting Chinachip drivers to work on Vista/7.

Prerequisites
There are a couple of things you need to get started with customising and flashing custom firmware on your Dingoo. I've uploaded the files you will need, and I will provide an explanation of how to use them.


You can find most of the files in this handy package I've put together. This includes Hxftool, fw flasher, drivers, example bmp, boot configs - Download (http://localhostr.com/files/a0f8f7/Dingoo%20firmware%20flashing%20files.zip)
You can find the 1.2 version of the Dingoo firmware here - Download (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=F6TJRG2F)
You can use any image editor capable of saving 16bit bitmap (for boot/shutdown screens), and png24 (for custom resources). I recommend The GIMP.


Customising the Dingoo firmware file
The Dingoo firmware comes as a file such as 'a320.hxf', the exact name of the file isn't important, but that is where we will begin. You will need to download the latest version of the Dingoo firmware (at the time of writing this, this is 1.2).

(http://localhostr.com/files/838cde/ss1.png)
Once you've got the firmware file, you can go ahead an open Hxftool, then from the 'File' menu select 'Open HXF-file'. This will load the firmware into Hxftool, where you can begin the fun task of editing parts of the firmware.

(http://localhostr.com/files/9c6f9d/ss2.png)
The first tab of the interface provides a hex-viewer, to see the hex content of the various files that make up the Dingoo firmware. This is also a good place to generally see the file-system structure of the Dingoo firmware.

(http://localhostr.com/files/2d1b9a/ss3.png)
The second tab provides some buttons to apply some patches. The only one that will be of any use to us is the last button 'Patch to use external themes'. When you press this, it will generate a 'system' directory that you will need to put on the root of your Dingoo's internal flash later on, so that you can edit/replace the resources of the default themes (icons/backgrounds/ui elements/etc).

(http://localhostr.com/files/348c29/ss4.png)
The third tab is where you will change the 'boot' and 'shutdown' screens. This is one of the simplest mods you can do to your Dingoo firmware, and all it requires is two correctly formatted images.

To use an image for the boot/shutdown screens, you need to make a 16bit bitmap image, that is 320px wide, and 240px tall.

Through trial and error I've found that using anything but 16bit bmp will cause the Dingoo to not get past the boot screen.

(http://localhostr.com/files/23e39f/ss5.png)
The fourth tab is where the various strings of the firmware are found. It is here that you can edit the poorly translated menu items into whatever you'd like them to be.

For example you could change 'Interesting Games' into 'Roms', or whatever you would rather call the location that you play the game roms on your Dingoo from. As far as I can tell, you have an 'allowance' of characters while editing these strings, as is indicated by the 'Bytes left' counter. This is fine though, because as you make some strings shorter, you will have enough characters to make short strings longer, and visa versa. When deciding on a replacement string, you should consider how the current string is displayed on the Dingoo menu, so that your text doesn't get cut off.

(http://localhostr.com/files/eb7470/ss6.png)
The fifth tab is where you can set some firmware config defaults. You can set the default language, theme, screen brightness, and auto-shutdown option here. This is very useful for avoiding having to reset the language to English when you re-flash the firmware.

(http://localhostr.com/files/d99afc/ss7.png)
The final tab is just a log of what you've changed/edited in the currently loaded firmware file.

When you've finished editing your firmware, you need to close it. You can do this by going to 'File' and then clicking 'Close HXF-File'.

Great, now your Dingoo firmware is customised! But that's just the start of the fun, now you need to actually flash this on to your Dingoo.

If you're currently using a firmware version lower than the version you've modified, you can do this quite simply by putting your modified firmware on to the root of your Dingoo's internal memory, named as 'a320.hxf', and booting the Dingoo while holding down on the d-pad. This should start the updater, and flash your firmware.

If you can't do it this way, or you have problems doing it this way, you can use the Dingoo Firmware Flasher that I've provided.

The Dingoo Firmware Flasher
The Dingoo Firmware Flasher (or 'Chinachip firmware burning tool') is an application created to be used for many Chinachip-based MP4 devices, to write firmware to them. It's a great tool for 'unbricking' a 'bricked' Dingoo, and an even better tool for flashing a custom firmware file.

As the Dingoo is a console from China, understandably the majority of software designed for working with the Dingoo is in Chinese. This causes a problem for many of us English speaking Dingoo users, because the applications make no sense.

There have been attempts to translate some of the Chinese applications, but with poor documentation these applications are still pretty confusing. I've stripped the 'useless' objects from the interface of the Dingoo Firmware Flasher, to make using it as simple as possible.

(http://localhostr.com/files/39f677/ss8.png)
To anybody familiar with the original version of the application, you might notice that some bits have been shifted around, and some bits have been removed. The application unfortunately has a bunch of untranslated stuff, because from what I could tell this was stored in un-editable parts of the program. It's still usable like this, and my explanation should suffice.

Accessing flashing mode with your Dingoo
To begin, you should reboot your Dingoo into flashing mode, by holding down the B button while it boots. It will seem as if the Dingoo hasn't turned on at all if you've done this right.

Once you've got the Dingoo into flashing mode, you can simply connect your USB cable, and your computer should recognise a new 'Jz4740' USB device.

I've included the 'Chinachip' drivers for Windows XP/2k in my package in the 'usb_drv' directory. Windows might try to find its own driver for the device, or it may already have a driver to use (if you've previously messed with the firmware flasher, or have installed Dingux).

Below are the steps to make it use the 'Chinachip' drivers.

After you've got the driver installed, you can open 'Dingoo Firmware Flasher.exe'. There is an 'install driver' option in the application, but I've not personally used this method or the drivers that it uses (they are embedded in the application), so the previous method I detailed is probably best.

Flashing your custom Dingoo firmware
This is where most people find confusion with the original version of this application, lets hope this is relatively painless for you.

It should be noted that any data on your Dingoo's internal flash memory will be erased when writing the firmware using this method.

With your USB cable still connected to your Dingoo, reboot the Dingoo again while holding down B. This will make sure that the flasher picks up your Dingoo. For now you can ignore the giberish in the large text box. From what I can tell it's supposed to be some steps for connecting the MP4 device, but as I'm explaining it here, it's not much use to us!

First thing you need to select is the 'Boot Config' file. This is a file that tells the Dingoo how to load the firmware with the hardware available. I've provided versions that I've found for both the ILI9325 and ILI9331 LCD module versions of the Dingoo. I've only personally tested the ILI9331 file, but the ILI9325 one should work fine for that LCD module.

To find out which LCD module your Dingoo has, go to 'System Setup' > 'About' on your Dingoo menu, and press up,right,down,up,right,down. This will load the diagnostics screen, which should say which module you have. All you need to look for is 9325 or 9331.

So click 'Browse' next to 'Boot Config' on the firmware flasher window, and select either the ILI9325 or ILI9331 file, as appropriate.

Next up is your firmware file. This part can be done with any version of the Dingoo firmware, which is especially useful for unbricking your Dingoo.

Click 'Browse' next to 'Firmware' and find the .hxf file that you would like to flash to your Dingoo.

Once you've selected these two files, press the 'Start flashing' button. If you've done everything correctly, the large white text box should be cleared and replaced with a line that starts like:
'Device XXX: blah blah blah' (the XXX and blah blah blah will vary).

While doing this, your Dingoo will reboot and the screen should display 'Firmware Upgrade...'. Congratulations, it's writing the firmware to your Dingoo. This process takes a couple of minutes, so go and make a cup of coffee or something, when you come back your Dingoo should hopefully be ready for you to continue.

Steps after a successful custom firmware flash
If you decided to enable external themes earlier, while you were messing with Hxftool, now is the time to write that 'system' directory to your Dingoo.

After the firmware upgrade the Dingoo reboots back into USB disk mode as usual, so you can just access it from 'My Computer' and put your files to the root of the internal flash memory.

When you're done, shutdown or reboot your Dingoo, and you should be finished :D

Haven't got the right menu language or everything is in Chinese?
This is a common problem with flashing any firmware version, as it's a Chinese device, the default language is Chinese. Changing back to your regular language is quite a simple process!

This should be stickied, big time...as it provides for a good way to unbrick your Dingoo.

Needless to say, you ought to be backing up any files you want to keep on your Dingoo as you install them onto your Dingoo itself...so that way, later, if the files get corrupted, you still have the original uncorrupted files to go back to and replace on your Dingoo...not to mention if you have to ever "unbrick" your Dingoo, it usually involves wiping out the memory, and everything you had in it.

Thank you very much for this large tutorial!! Do I see that you are using Linux? If so: nice to see that Wine runs the flash- and fhx tools just fine.  :)

P.S. I think this should be made sticky too.

Not linux, but a Windows XP theme that I think was made for GTK/Metacity by the same author first :P

I imagine these apps would Wine well though..

I stickied the topic when I made it, heh.

Thought I'd recognize the theme. ;) But unfortunately the hxf tool crashes when I try to open a hxf. No problem, I've WinXP in dual boot (well, triple actually, but that's waaaaay to off topic).

I've seen the firmware number in the language content. Why can't you just change the firmware version to 10.0 and go upwards? This way you never need to do any flashing?

Make sure you have installed the chinachip drivers correctly, and try running the flashing tool in Windows XP compatability mode. As far as I'm aware there is no way to completely brick a Dingoo.

You can still boot it into USB flashing mode by holding down the B button, and if you have an a320.hxf on the internal memory, you should be able to boot into the updater by holding DOWN on the dpad while booting.

I yesterday modify firmware 1.2 and i'm use hxftool, and of course dingoo was bricked. I had problem with unbrick tool, i can't install driver from unbrick tool, my computer wants always drivers from dualbios. I use another computer where i don't install dualbios drivers and there it's work. I instal drivers from unbrick tool ,and run program in administrator mode, I unbrick dingoo. In first computer I have WindowsXP, and in second Windows Vista.To unbrick dingoo computer must see chinachip not driver from dualbios. Maybe this help anyone.

The problem is that the flashing program hangs when I go to flash it. I left it alone for 1 1/2 hours and it was still not done. I will try again with some different drivers but it looks like I'm out of luck for now. My other computer which is xp kept asking for the dualboot drivers and thus I could not run the flashing tool through it.

Edit: running it as an administrator helped, the files began to transfer, but it seems like the program hangs, after 20 mins it still isn't done. I'll update if there's any progress.

I got mine working.
I downloaded the Flasher tool from this forum:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-hacks/guide-flashing-custom-firmwares-to-your-dingoo/msg3866/

Here's the link for the Flasher download:
http://localhostr.com/files/a0f8f7/Dingoo%20firmware%20flashing%20files.zip

And here is the official 1.20 Dingoo Firmware:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=F6TJRG2F

Do the following:
01 Download both files above.
02 Extract the first file into a folder.
03 Put the 1.20 Dingoo Firmware into the folder from step 02.
04 Reset your Dingoo while holding down B to put it in service mode.
05 Plug your Dingoo into your computer.
06 Go to Device Manager (Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc).
07 If you see any driver for your Dingoo, uninstall it and remove from the system. Then unplug your Dingoo and plug it in again.
08 Do step 07 until it doesn't have a driver anymore (it will show up in Device Manager under "Other devices" as "JZ4740 USB Boot Device" with a yellow exclamation mark on the icon).
09 Right-click and say Update Driver. Then say Browse My Computer, then Let Me Pick, choose All Devices and hit Next. Then click Have Disk. The driver you want to install is in the folder from step 02.
10 Now open the folder from step 02 and run Dingoo Firmware Flasher.
11 Click Browse next to Boot Config and in that same folder, choose the .dl file that corresponds to your Dingoo (ILI9325 or ILI9331).
12 Now click Browse next to Firmware and choose the a320.HXF file you downloaded.
13 Now reset your Dingoo again, holding down B so it's in service mode. Leave it plugged in while you do this!
14 Ready to flash the firmware. Click Start flashing. Ignore Windows if it asks you to format your Dingoo.
15 Leave it alone for about 10 minutes. You'll see 3-4 lines on the Firmware Flasher screen, but it won't tell you when it's done.
16 After those 10 minutes are up, close the Firmware Flasher, then unplug your Dingoo. It should restart automatically and boot into the firmware.
17 It'll be in Chinese so go all the way to the right on the menu, hit A, then hit UP four times and hit A, then choose your language.

Hopefully this is clear enough and I hope it works for you.

Things that bricked my Dingoo while translating to proper English:

If I changed the boot picture to anything other than [email protected], the Dingoo hangs on the boot screen and will not become a logical drive (which allows you to copy over the system files).

If I changed any settings on the language, or backlight time it was also bricked (in the same way).

If you are going to change the bootup picture, try just changing that and make sure it works first. After the flash is successful, you should be able to modify all the "translation" fields without any problems (I assume that if you go passed "0 bytes left" and receive a large number, this will also brick it... I stayed above 0 by shortening some of the other fields, so I'm not sure if it does or not).

24-bit? Wasn't that supposed to be 16-bit?

Ehm, I'm having slight trouble.
The Firmware Flasher doesn't do anything. When I start flashing, the text box stays empty, and my Dingoo does nothing, even though the "Installing Firmware" icon appears. It's kinda needed to flash my Dingoo because I bricked it with my custom firmware... I guess some of the bitmaps weren't right :P
Title: Re: Guide - Flashing custom firmwares to your Dingoo
Post by: omgmog on November 13, 2009, 11:13:24 pm
Please don't double post.


Yes the image is supposed to be [email protected] BMP, no other format.

Boot your Dingoo while holding B, connect USB cable, make sure you've got Chinachip driver installed, select boot file for your LCD module, and an unmodified firmware, press 'start flashing'.

You should see an output like:

Code: [Select]
Device 110: 系统烧录开始...
Device 110: 正在格式化磁盘...
设备 4383528: 开始烧录资源,等待烧录完成...

设备 4383528: 系统烧录完成!

As far as I can tell, the first two lines are it finding the device, 3rd is it starting the flashing, 4th is for completion.

Hope that helps

I'm confused.

You keep saying 16-bit, but there is no way my computer can produce a 16-bit color image. Even when I download the "bye.BMP" that was posted here, it still says 24-bit.

In Corel Photo-paint 11 under Windows XP, the only 16 bit option is a "16-bit greyscale".
Even when I click properties on the image in Windows Explorer, the file manager summary says that the image is 24-bit color.
When I add my own custom 24-bit BMPs to a firmware, it flashes fine.

In Photoshop and many good graphics applications you can save as 16-bit. BMP can be saved as 16, 24, and 32-bit.

http://paulbourke.net/dataformats/bitmaps/

As you will see on this page,
Quote
16 bit RGB

This is generally a direct system with 5 bits per colour component and a 1 bit alpha channel.

Throughout the firmware (for menu resources/backgrounds) you can use 24-bit PNG with alpha-transparancy (nice smooth see-through bits, with anti-aliased edges). For some parts of the firmware, such as the folder/filetype icons, you need to use 8-bit PNG with a #ff00ff mask where you want them to be see-through (this isn't smooth, and has blocky edges).

From my experience the bootscreen/shutdown screen have had to always be 16-bit BMP. This could be a filesize limitation rather than a palette limitation, but either way, the 16-bit is going to be a smaller filesize, so if you can do it that way it is a good idea.

There are some examples of different bit-depth BMPs on this page - http://wvnvms.wvnet.edu/vmswww/bmp.html

You should be able to notice the difference between the 16-bit and 24-bit BMP examples, most notably in the white>black gradient.

MSPaint adds to the confusion about bit-depth because it uses a stupid naming convention for the types of BMP you can make:

Code: [Select]
Monochrome Bitmap = 1-bit
16 Color Bitmap = 4-bit
256 Color Bitmap = 8-bit
24-bit Bitmap = 24-bit

And then ofcourse you have the largely compressed JPEG on MSPaint which is no good for anything, and the largely under-compressed raw 24-bit PNG on MSPaint which produces files too large to be used practically.

So there you go, a computer can produce a 16-bit color BMP image, you just need the correct software for it. I personally use Adobe Photoshop CS3.

A free alternative to Photoshop would be The Gimp (http://gimp.org), which lets you save 16-bit BMP files just fine. Don't be confused by the number of 16-bit options it gives you, the one we're interested in is the 16-bit RGB 565 option, which is the standard 16-bit.

(http://localhostr.com/files/682c1a/Save%20as%20BMP.png)

When choosing to save a file as BMP in The Gimp, just click the little 'Advanced Options' toggle, and you will be able to pick the correct bit depth.


It's all too easy to forget that 15 years ago, our computers used to have 2MB onboard video and could output at a maximum of 102[email protected] "High color"!   :D

Hmm, that's what I did in my custom firmware, using Photoshop CS3, yet it bricked my Dingoo.
What are the settings you need to use in CS3 in order to not brick it? :P

Also, sorry for the double post. I usually hate it when people doublepost, and I didn't notice that I had already replied earlier :P

If you enable 'Advanced Modes' on the BMP Options dialogue, you can select R5G6B5 mode, this should work.

Thanx!  :)

Here is the "final" version of the English Translations.
I translated everything that Dingoo Patcher v0.6 (hxftool.exe), would allow.

Notes:
Menu sub-headings get cut off after 13 characters.
"About" Text is limited to 34 characters (30 characters will look centered)

Personalize your Firmware:
Add your name or phone number to the "Version" line (34 char. max. & 30 centered)
...if your dingoo gets stolen, it won't be easy for them to get rid of it.

 ;D

http://members.shaw.ca/jato/FullEnglishTranslations.txt (http://members.shaw.ca/jato/FullEnglishTranslations.txt)

Edit:
The "absolute" final version of the English translations says "Final Version" at the top of the text file.

 ;D


Edit-Edit:
Kalisiin - "Imagine making a police report that someone stole your "Dingoo..."  ROFL!!!"
NinJato - "Officer... I was playing with my Dingoo all day yesturday, but when I woke up this morning it was gone..."   :P

SUCCESS! Alright, after lots of hair pulling I finally was able to update my Firmware! Turns out I had two problems:

1. I wasn't running Vista as an admin
2. When I edited the firmware with the hxf editer would brick my dingoo

My solution? Take your custom firmware and throw on my own bootscreen!  I'll admit I was really disheartened when I spent 30 mins typing in language corrections and then my firmware wouldn't boot.

Thanks for the guide omgomg! And thanks shanti for the vista help!

I am having trouble flashing 1.20 on to a 1.1 A320.

I followed the guide on page one using a .hxf file modified to correct the Engrish..

Copied that to the root and rebooted holding down "down"

I got the installing... screen and it rebooted to the "paws" and stayed there

I waited and no joy

I have not installed the un bricking tools and the USB driver : Jz4740 USB Boot device

I have fired up the flashing firmware tool, picked a LCD file (had to guess) and the original unmodified .hxf

Rebooted holding down B and clicked fstart flash, I get two lines on the flashing tool..

Device 2a4: 系统??录??始...
Device 2a4: ???诟?式??????..

and there it just sits, the LCD screen had gone grey with like moving horizontal lines...


Any one have any ideas how i fix this ?

please..

OK made some progress, managed to get ride of the grey screen with moving lines, I had the wrong LCD driver needed the newer one (?) 9331.

When i go into reboot with B down i can see the a320 in windows devices (xp) if i use the bricker tool, pick the 0331 driver and the 1.2 original  hxf file the a320 says "Firmware Upgrading...". In devmgmt.msc the device for it gets a yellow icon and the broker tool says:

Device 14c: 系统??录??始...
Device 14c: ???诟?式??????..


No other lines showing, is it stalling ?

I have waited for 15+ minutes...

It may take a looooong time to upgrade your firmware. If it DOES display "Upgrading firmware" on the screen, that means it's either very very busy, or it hangs. If it hangs, I have no clue what to do :(

OK made progress, turned it off and that made it come up as normal windows drivers for the internal and minisd Card.

I copied over a 1.1 chinese firmware and rebooted holding down 'down', that installed and rebooted into chinese !

Plugged in USB and copied over 1.2 by Pof and rebooted and that installed and i can access it again..

Deep joy.

Hope all this rambling helps anyone else whos stuck !!

The problem sounded like you had probably enabled custom themes support, so when it was sat on the paw screen you needed to copy over the /SYSTEM/ directory to your internal flash.

Nice!

I feel ya on the "sorting ROMS" thing...I have been doing that about since I got the Dingoo...I'm near the end of what has been a very time consuming task now, and should finish with over 1000 games I actually like and may even play on my system...and almost none that I would never play.

In fact, if I can be 100 percent sure on how to get rid of games I do not want on dingux, I'd get rid of the ones I don't want there, like Doom.

It seems to me that if you alter the dmenu.cfg file, and then take out the entire game's file, that should permanently remove unwanted built-in games from the dingoo, but I'm not willing to risk that until I have a full backup of everything else done first.

OK, I'm just a bit confuzzed here.

If you use only the HXFTool to customize...then your Dingux flash remains intact...otherwise if you use your burning tool, then you'd have to re-flash Dingux again, too?

If you can use just the HFXTool...does this allow for then custom themes on the Dingoo, so that you could, say, use the Windows 7 theme?

I'm just not sure about this.

Basically all I really want, more than anything, is to fix the rotten English, and make it into real English.

I dont use Dingux , but with the HXFTool you can enable support for custom themes and use the Windows 7 theme (i use this) and same time you can replace the 'engrish'.

We 'all' really need to lobby Dingoo and get them to accept a community supplied English language text options file and have them intergrate it into the next firmware release. Surely this cant be that hard to do ?

I also used this as a basis: http://members.shaw.ca/jato/FullEnglishTranslations.txt.

How do we get them to update the next firmware?

Yes, the firmware burning tool will wipe out the Dingux boot stuff from your Dingoo (it won't touch your SD card), so you will simply have to reinstall the Dingux boot loader after you flash a custom firmware with the firmware burning tool. Alternatively, you could try installing a custom firmware (such as the Dingoonity 1.2 cfw) using the regular upgrade method.

Dingoonity 1.2 won't screw up Dingux, then?  Can you use HXFTool with that...or is there some other way to get custom bootup screens on that?

As I said, if you install a custom firmware by upgrade (a320.hxf on root of internal flash, boot while holding down on d-pad) it won't alter the Dingux boot. In some cases though this method doesn't work, so you would have to use the firmware flasher (firmware burner... whatever you want to call it), which would overwrite the Dingux boot files, so they would need to be reinstalled to your Dingoo afterwards.

Dingoonity cfw 1.2 works fine with the firmware editor, providing you make the images exactly how I say to in this very guide.

Thanks for taking the time to write this easy tutorial. Was there any more tests tried on the firmware? Like shuffling the menu around (ex: adding sub-menus for each emu) getting rid of those white lines in the lists etc. ? Might work on some themes to contribute to the scene a little  :).

EDIT: *mod edit, moved to right topic*
Title: Re: Guide - Flashing custom firmwares to your Dingoo
Post by: omgmog on December 27, 2009, 01:36:18 am
From what I could tell there isn't anyway to physically move/add/remove the menu entries, just change the strings that are displayed.

If you look in my Dingoonity Custom Firmware topic though, you will see that I've made a version with a relocated /Game/ directory -- moved to the miniSD instead of internal flash.

So that's one kind of mod you can do.

You could also sort your roms/games into subdirectories for a bit more structure, but that's about it

As someone who is totally new to this emulator world, I found this post very helpful. I have 2 questions that I think it would be helpful if they were addressed.

1. When going into the system diagnostics to see which LCD version I have, I did not know how to get out of it. I just did a reset.

2. When using the patch for themes, the instructions say the a system directory is generated and needs to be moved to the root of the Dingoo. Where is this directory found after it is generated?

In my first attempt, I tried to skip dealing with the system directory hoping to do it another time. Unfortunately I just bricked the unit. Hitting reset while holding B unfroze it and I flashed an unedited hxf file. The Dingoo is happy once again (and so is my son!)

Thanks for a great tutorial!

ETA: for some reason the a320.hxf file was not on the dingoo. The first time I connected to the computer, it finished the update and closed the connection to the computer. The second time I connected to the computer, it was visible to the computer and I just copied the a320 file from the computer to the dingoo, then restarted the dingoo while holding the d-pad "down" key. It is now recognizable again.

Hi there,
Thanks for the feedback on the tutorial, now in response to your questions:

1 - Pressing B should get you out of the diagnostics screen, that's the usual button behaviour to go "back to the previous screen" on the Dingoo firmware
2 - Hxftool will generate a folder alongside the exe that you launched, inside that will be the "SYSTEM" directory.
  --- a note here, by flashing a custom hxf and forgetting to put the "SYSTEM" directory onto your Dingoo you haven't actually bricked it. You should still be able to boot into usb mode (boot+b) and then copy the "SYSTEM" directory over to the flash, without having to restore an untouched a320.hxf

I hope that helps,
Max

Hi mysonic,
I'm going to need some more detail to be able to help you

 - what did you try to flash (if your own custom firmware, what did you change?)
 - what kind of Dingoo do you have?
 - which LCD controller does your Dingoo have, did you select the right bootfile?

Dear omgmog, could you please add a reminder for absent-minded ppl (such as myself) to copy over the system directory right after this part:
Code: [Select]
If you're currently using a firmware version lower than the version you've modified, you can do this quite simply by putting your modified firmware on to the root of your Dingoo's internal memory, named as 'a320.hxf', and booting the Dingoo while holding down on the d-pad. This should start the updater, and flash your firmware.
And now for some heavy unbricking..  8) Many thanks!

I dont know if everybody already knows this:

You dont need to use the Flashertool if you dingoo isnt bricked. If the dingoo says "same firmware version" there is a standard firmware which is always flashable, so you can downgrade and flash another customfirmware again. This keeps your files on the dingoo and the dingux bootloader, too. :)
If someone needs that hxf I would upload it.

Thanks so much!  It worked for me, and I would recommend it to others, it's much simpler than flashing!  The only thing is I think I saved the logon screen at 24bit or something, so now I'll have to find a 32bit XP machine to fix it as it wont get past the boot screen!  ;D

I got a problem here trying to unload the TD-1.03 Custom Firmware on my Dingoo.  Whenever I use the flashing tool it recognizes the drivers for it, but whenever it's writing the firmware, it automatically cuts the USB connection off and bricks the Dingoo with a striped screen.  I keep connecting it over and over again, but it does the same thing. I even tried doing this with the unbricker tool and it does the same thing.  I had the 1.20 official firmware on it before, so I don't know if this has to do with anything.
