It is possible to boot dingux directly, but it isnt possible to put it on the internal flashrom.
Use this SPL zimages with the dualboot installer and you can choose to boot up linux.

Thank you santino,i know there is much things to do on dingux,such as TV-out,FM radio...but dingux is much popular than uCOSii,i'll just want to have a try do that directly boot to Dingux,and treat it as main OS.Hope that my dingoo will not turn into a brick ;D

 :P I have a try,it works well,at a install moment I saw this:
Code: [Select]
Which SPL do you want to
flash?

1 Dual-boot
2 Linux
3 Original firmware

I choose 2,no longer press "Select" to Dingux! Thanks!

In theory it is certainly possible to install Dingux on the NAND, either replacing the native OS completely or with the roots file in the native partition with a loopback mount, like it runs from the SD card. However, no-one has made this yet.

If you want to try, the first step would be to compile a Linux kernel with MTD and JZ NAND support and see if you can access the flash from Dingux.

you can access it, read only mounting it as raw

...but there's still quite a bit of work to do before installing on the internal, joyrider was messing around with it a while ago, and it's much easier to just use the sd card, wouldn't want to have to reflash your dingoo every day if it got a bit corrupted
