If you compare the About this unit pictures from the A-380e and the A-320e you'll notice that they don't use the same firmware version. The Dingoo A-380e uses an older version.  ???

Hi all,

I received an 'A-380e' for Xmas and am deeply saddened by all this (mostly the SNES disaster >:( ). Is anyone gonna try the fixes suggested here? Is this thing just boned from the get-go? I would love to get this thing running better!

RETURN IT!

its not a proper a380

Hi there. I decided to mess around with handheld emulators a bit, so I did the same thing. I just picked up a A380e from Thinkgeek myself (it was listed as a A380, so yea, incorrect advertising). I took it apart to have a look at the 'ping in a poke' I just got stuck with. Here's the pics:

No internal TF card slot, so I'm not sure if it's possible to upgrade the firmware. The SNES emulator is pretty bad, I've tested several games with it and they all seem to skip frames and the audio crackles constantly. I haven't had a chance to thoroughly test the NES emulator, but the few times I fired it up it seemed to do a more passable job than the SNES emulator. No luck at all with the few games I have for the NEO GEO emulator, it just crashes.

On a related note the credit card payment processor that isharegifts and etronixmart uses (credit-pay.com I think) has been offline for days (I think both of those sites are actually the same company).

What's the top of the line, king of the hill handheld emulator console these days? The A380 looked great but they appear to be hard to find for sale.

a CFW modded a380 is way better than the buggy GCW right now
but as you say checkout on isharegift and etronixmart does not work

Did you try to get in contact with someone from Etronixmart or Isharegift to ask them why it isn't possible to pay with a credit card?

Gateway payment does not work, and they don't take paypal

Makes me wonder if both webshops date from the Ming dynasty.  ;D

That explains why they still have them in stock.

That's sad/funny, you're right, the box specs are EXACTLY the same:

Pic from the side of my A380e monstrosity. I may get gutsy and try A320e mods, I have to do some reading about them first.

This is a relabeled a320e, at least the PCB looks _absolutely_ identical (www.dingoo.hk_v1.0)
Compare wit this review:

You can probably install dingux for a320e on external card if you are lucky to find A320E-DINGUX.zip archive. After that you can use emulators for a380.

Just an FYI. I received a reply from isharegifts a couple of hours ago, their response about their payment processor being down was basically 'darn', and pointed me to willgoo.com. No A380s for sale, just an A330 with a wireless controller. And a few dozen Droid based 'gaming tablets', of which I know nothing.

Willgoo doesn't sell the Dingoo anymore. Maybe they got tired of waiting for new real Dingoo A-380 consoles because they've been out of stock for a very long time.  :(

Hi, I made an account just for this thread. Does anyone know where I could get an A380? I would love to have one, but I'm afraid of getting an "e" version. I know Alien Grey posted some sites but what Ransak said worries me.

Should I email them first about their stock and see if it's A380e or not? Or should I just go ahead and buy one?

A little cryptic, but I guess they don't have them. They got back to me stating "Sorry, the Dingoo brand were all out of stock."

Well... I'm running out of  webshop links.

It looks like there's not a single Dingoo A-380 console available for sale anymore and the a-380e isn't a good replacement.  :(
