What are the differences in the new firmware? As your picture shows, the menu looks different, are there more changes? Which languages does it contain?

http://love394.3322.org:81/soft/gujian/%E4%B8%81%E6%9E%9Ca320_1.6V.zip

According to the posting in the Chinese BBS, the menu improved. For example, when choosing a game, it's said to be possible to show a preview picture

But they also say it is a pre-release especially for the idingoo forum and contains bugs. The thread-starter states he already switched back to the V1.2. So IMHO it's better to wait a litte more.

Edit: OK, I just took a shot, upgraded to 1.6: I played around a few minutes and noticed the following changes:

-you can now choose to display games in "Directory" mode (like before) or all games in one list
-preview screens: If you started a game once already, there will be a (random?) preview screen  in the menu the next time
-you can protect the internal memory and turn off the speakers  in options-menu (not sure if it was possible before though, hehe)
-movie player pauses play with Y (i think that's new)
 
(the download link above contains the usual languages incl. english)

now the question is, is this dingoo digital that's releasing it? or dingoo tech? flamewar time!!!  ;D

(reckon they listened to peoples comments on the old firmwares and actually corected problems? or just 'improved' it so it seems better but really isn't)

Gonna give this a try...

Tried it, the preview screens are a nice touch.

Mine freezes on updating the jukebox which makes it useless. Not only can I not see any games every time I plug into USB & disconnect it freezes.

Bit of a shame cos the previews look v nice, will wait & see if bugs are ironed out.

Both links still work fine for me though...

but as Frank_fjs already said, note really usable right now...

BTW, in the Chinese board, they are also providing new emulators for use with the new firmware V1.6. I tried them, but at least GBA and SNES are still V 1.0 and I noticed no changes at all.

Note that this new firmware with modified features (not only a new skin) comes from Dingoo Digital (original and genuine Dingoos), and NOT from Dingoo Technology (counterfeit A330 Dingoos). Check the screenshot of the About-screen (dingoo.cn is the official site of Dingoo Digital, whilst the fake company uses dingoo.hk).

This shows (yet again), that Dingoo Digital are the original and genuine Dingoo makers, because they have access to the source code of the operating system. Dingoo Technology are counterfeiters, pure and simple, the only thing that changed when they released their A330, was the theme, which anyone can change at will (http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-hacks/).
Title: Re: The dingoo Official Firmware Release V1.6
Post by: Frank_fjs on June 24, 2010, 06:52:54 pm
^ + 1001

Dingoo Tech merely cashed in on the marketing & product branding/awareness of the A320 created by Dingoo Digital.

The A330 is a bootlegged knock-off who's only resemblance to the A320 is a similar sounding name & stolen software/hardware - yet it's HIGHER PRICED.

Dingoo Tech are also primarily responsible for the lower quality "HK" A320's - I have no love for them obviously.

It's going to take more than a non-functioning firmware with a useless little preview feature to convince me that DD are the guys.
Title: Re: The dingoo Official Firmware Release V1.6
Post by: flatmush on June 27, 2010, 05:17:43 pm
It's more than Dingoo Technology produced, also note that Dingoo Digital produced the first and best units. What have Dingoo Technology done to convince anyone that they're official?
There was no doubt for a long time that Dingoo Technology is fake, we just wanted to see if they could improve the hardware and it turns out that they didn't, end of story.

does that mean i should not bother buying a330 i have a320 but do not want to buy a "knock off" as it has been put is dd releasing any new dingoos? also is firm ware 1.6 not worth putting on my a320 yet if it is all buggy? ???
Title: Re: The dingoo Official Firmware Release V1.6

Yeah, don't bother with 1.6 just yet.

IMHO, don't get an A330, and wait before upgrading your firmware, atleast until they iron out some of the bugs. Also, although it's not thorougly tested, it doesn't yet work on HK units, according to the first post.

Dingoo Digital produced the first and best units.

DD and DT were one in the same then. So that statement means nothing.

DD hasn't done anything either. This useless hacked firmware is no exception. It's just like DT's A330 console, except with software, but it's even less improved and more worthless. Maybe if they were to release something with substance, such as improved emulators, or a new firmware that does more than show little preview pictures, or a new console (which they said they were going to make) with all of the above. Then I'd be more convinced that DD is the one with the programmers and resources.

Where is your proof for that statement, don't trust speculation without proof. Dingoo Digitals firmware update may be insignificant, but they've added updates which would require access to the source code which pretty much proves that they own the source code.

Post by: Friendly Neighborhood Dingoonity Troll on June 28, 2010, 09:18:54 am
According to DDU who has dealt with DD since near the beginning (before the supposed "split"), has said that the people he now deals with at DT are the same people he has dealt with from the beginning at DD. So that "pretty much proves" that at least some people from DT were once part of the original DD.

Your statement has no proof either. You are telling me it is absolutely impossible for a few "ex-employees" to hack the firmware enough to add such a trivial little feature (apparently they couldn't even do that without breaking it)?

If you guys could remain on topic, that'd be great.

I've given you a whole section of the boards to beat the dead horse, don't plague other topics with discussion about the legitimacy of DD or DT.

Hi,

On the same thread http://www.idingoo.cn/ShowPost.asp?ThreadID=591, there is also mention of an updated GBA emulator (apparently, there is a separate link). Any info about that?

New GBA games, not new GBA emulator.

guess what
i installed the 1.6 firmware and my dingoo now hangs on the DINGOO DIGITAL bootscreen.
great.
i had to unbrick it.don't install 1.6 . yet.
o yea , i own an "original" dingoo (based on : all apps run fine on my dingoo) .

Although I agree with what you're saying, the 1.6 firmware did run fine for me. It just had some problems which made me decide not to use it.

There's more than 2 types of Dingoo's, i.e. not just 'fake' and 'non fake" - there are various fake versions floating around. What you get depends on where you buy from - something that a lot of people still don't get.

i got it from a company that takes the products from the "official" manufacturer and rebrands them. it really acted like an official dingoo.up to now. if anybody can patch the fw1.6 to work on all dingoos (or on more dingoos at least , assuming that i am lucky and it will work for mine too) , it would be nice :)

edit :
i downloaded the a320.hxf 1.60 from an odd site , after searching for the file on google.i may have a broken file..or not.still , can anybody pm me with a reupload (none of the links work) of the fw1.60 that worked on their dingoo ?

i'd be pretty surprised if this ever got released properly, with bugs squished, the amount of native support coming from china can't exactly be classified as existing really
Title: Re: The dingoo Official Firmware Release V1.6
Post by: HelmeetElGato on December 20, 2010, 04:03:11 pm
I tried it for about 5 minutes and then downgraded back to ole good 1.20.
As far as I got, I noticed these bugs: each time it actualized the files (like, unplugging the Usb) it hanged and had to be reseted (Possibly an issue with some mp3 names? Anyway, the older version didn't have that)
The thumbnail recognition for roms appear to work fine, but it read all the files in subdirectories to a common list; there is an option to go back to the directories system, but then the files on them won't show... So, it need a little more work, am afraid.

ouch that's sad.  I came looking for the newest updates since my daughter has been playing with the dingoo.  It's been a year since I've played with it and 1.2 is what I have installed.
