Great job. :)

My only concern now is the menu translations:
"Dingoo games" obviously makes more sense than the original name, but there are many apps too, so wouldn't it be better to call this section "Apps"? And IMHO "Emulators" makes better sense than "Roms" because you're not running roms - you're running emulators which run roms. Maybe you should just use the 1.03 custom firmware translation? I think it has everything very well translated, so there isn't much point of reinventing a wheel and re-translating the menus.

But even so, it's still a great modification and great apps/games pack.

Dingoo games is because all app running in this folder is made for Dingoo OS, all in this folder is a Dingoo game.

Roms makes a better sense, because you enter in this folder to find a "rom" and the emulator is automatically choosen by OS.

all is made use 1.2 only, some translations are the same usen in PofCF.

Thank´s  ;)

I have new A320. I install dual_boot_installer_20090916 and Dingux.
All is OK.
 I wont install new Maetel Custom Firmware 1.2, but
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.
Where is problem?

I've installed this FW but have a few problems:
  • All the English Dingux games you included won't launch at all. It just freezes the whole device.
  • The same goes for the CPU app. Completely freezes the Dingoo.
  • Sometimes when I use the USB file mode and I unplug the Dingoo, I can only reset to get back to the system.
  • The GBA Emulator doesn't work :( Or am I missing a file? (like the BIOS?)

LCD ILI9331

UPDATE: Forget it! I found out, that I have a HK dingoo :( I could restore the GBA Emu.

How are you updating the emulators in the firmware? I have an interest in replacing the entire firmware with something more open and am curious how you managed that.
