Where do you find the serial #. I read that it is near the USB port. Mine has nothing near the USB port. Is it on the inside of the case?

Serial number looks like this on the Chinese HK Dingoos.

Unpawed Export Dingoos don't have a serial printed there.

So i should ask if the Dingoo is the Export unpawed version? Because i was gonna buy it on ebay since the prices are lower, it comes with the silicon skin and the official bag. You think that the sllker knows about these things? He is actually selling 5 Dingoos and tons of Lingerie =D

You run the risk of getting a crappy Chinese Dingoo when you buy from Ebay. Chinese Dingoo's are cheaper, why do you think the Ebay prices are lower?
It's not worth it just to save a few bucks, and no the seller probably doesn't know about these things, it seems like a lot of resellers don't.

At the end of the day, you usually get what you pay for...

So maybe i should buy it directly from Deal Extreme? And, in this case, am i sure that they are gonna send me the right one? (i mean the export unpawed version)

So those older 4gb pawed dingoos are still worth their original sale price, and perhaps a little more?

Not that I intend on selling mine anytime soon, but that's good to know.

Also, sorry if this has been answered, but these chinese dingoos that everyone is avoiding are for the chinese market? Interesting.

I most certainly hope that the DS ones are still the "good ones". Its very easy to order there and they have very low shipping costs (to The Netherlands).
Finally got me a new Dingoo after I Kentucky ~~::fried::~~ the other one. Yippee! [edit] And lost it!

Hi guys,

Just received my Dingoo in the mail today. It's a black HK model, serial number 4G A320BK96007568HK.

I've tested a few native apps. Here's the results. - . I've only checked that they run, though.

Work as expected:
SMSGOO 3.3 (tested rom: Alex Kidd in Miracle World NTSC)
XRickOO
Hexavirus

Not so good:
Commander Koon - starts to load demo but reports an error after a short wait.
Manic Miner v11 - freezes after quitting using the X button twice.
GNUBoy - refuses to load a second ROM but that seems to be an issue with unpawed export models too. So I guess you could say that this 'works as expected' really.
LynGOO 1.2 - Freezes if correct BIOS image not found. Dumped me out of Blue Lightning (the ROM I tested it with) after a little while; not sure why. Perhaps I pressed the X button too often? EDIT: It didn't freeze after it dumped me though. Emulator issue perhaps?

Hopefully this post will be of use to somebody. I'll try and update it as I test new software.

I bought mine from thinkgeek. It does not have a serial #, so does this mean it's a cheap one? Had it a week or so now and no problems that I can see. Anything I need to look for?

I had no problems at all with my HK model until trying to run homebrew and apps in the native firmware.  Also is there, or will there be, an unbricker tool for HK models?  I know unbricker tools dont work on HK models... but if they are selling them, shouldnt they make one for them?

@Oriley:  I also bought mine from thinkgeek, and every single app (homebrew or for dingux) has worked as expected.  Had it since christmas.

Mine is a pawed version from DealExtreme that works w/ everything that is reported not to work w/ the HK ones. Serial: A320BK******* (no HK letters at the end of the serial No.). Hope this helps. :)

I can see a pattern!  ;D Probably a good idea to list the serials of different hardware revisions.
edit: Oh wait, A320BK is probably black, A320WH white.  :D Now i wonder if it?s the same with the unpawed ones.
