given up on installing linux
« on: November 14, 2009, 09:52:27 pm »
Hi guys after having tried everything in my power in getting dingux to work on my dingoo i have thrown the towel.
Cant get it to work
I tried everything i have read on this forum also the idiots guide and the other guides but i just cant get it to work

Problem is i cant get dualboot to work in cmd the flashing progress runs great but when the flasher screen has to pop up on the dingoo it just remains black(i have the 9331_3 screen)

tried everything removed chinachip loader and also followed the steps from someone on the forum how to remove them in 10 steps but nothing works

Also formatted sd card in 32 and copied after renaming zImage to sd and after that rootfs and after that the complete local folder etcetera.

1 Final try from me: I want to understand why I cant figure it out,I think lots of other users of this great product have the same problem :

IS THERE SOMEONE IN THE NETHERLANDS NEAR SNEEK WHO CAN COME TO MY HOUSE AND GO THOUGH THIS TOGETHER!!

And if he/she gets it to work maybe we can place the tutorial on this forum so you guys/girls who have the same problem can get it sorted out

Are you using XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7?

Vista and 7 users have reported some problems, and there is a guide specific to vista and 7 users that gets them past those problems.

Let us know, since you never told us what OS your computer is using to try this.

Like a lot of folks, you're throwing in the towel way too early, or you're pushing it at someone else saying, "It's broke, fix it..." without giving us enough information to actually help you.

It would be very helpful if you could actually specify, EXACTLY what steps you have taken...not just "I've tried everything..."

That said...

Try this Guide...if you are using Vista
Follow it step-by-step...don't rush it, don't skip steps.

If I could do it...ANYONE can.

I have this problem too. I tried in two different computers with windows xp sp3 installed.

I followed many guides and tips from other dingoo owners, but still have no luck. My dingoo is the no paw version, and it came with fw 1.1, i upgraded too pof's cfw 1.2

The screen remains black after doing all the steps.

If someone knows about a guide to install with ubuntu, i would give it a try.

Try "Veilig Verwijderen" first, when your device is normally attached (not in boot mode) to remove the disk drive. Then unplug it, restart it in boot mode, and do the steps, and then the flashing window should show up.

I had the same problem here, though in XP.

If you have problems installing it under windows, you could always try to do it on linux. There are plenty of small livecd distributions, shouldn't be a problem to download one, and boot it.

That depends whether you have a 64-bit version of Windows installed or not. A lot of drivers don't work under 64-bit Windows. In that case, get a Linux LiveCD/LiveDVD, and flash the loader from there, since it does not require special drivers to flash under Linux.

Well I'm in the same situation as you and I tried with my Core2Duo pc and with my netbook (Advent 4211c - MSI Wind clone 1.6GHz processor). Failed in both systems.

In the archive is a readme file, that should explain how to install the bootloader under Linux.

Ignore all the idiots guides :P

Why do you want to install Linux on your PC? I use Linux per default, but for one particular step in the Dingux installation process I HAD to use WindowsXP. I don't remember what step, because the tutorial I used was deleted by a hacker named "Dan" in the old freeforums forum. If you read all the info available you'll see that Win Vista and up don't mount the SD card right (there is a solution, however).

[edit] It was 'The complete idiot's guide to installing Dingux'.

P.S. Stuck w/ Linux? Since you're Dutch: goto the Nedlinux forum. :)

Okay. For clarity:
  • You use Windows Vista 64 bit
  • You have a pawed Dingoo w/ LCD screen 9331
  • You used the 'Idiot's guide' I referred to?
  • You removed the ChinaChip drivers via Windows' Device Manager (dunno what they've renamed it to in Win Vista/7)
  • The dual boot drivers for the Dingoo, that are referred to in the Guide, did install successfully? That is, the "new hardware found" dialog did not show up after installing aforementioned dual boot drivers?
  • In the guide you're stuck at step:
    • Chapter 3. Installing Dingux
    • A. Flash firmware
    • Flash firmware
    • 3. Initialize the nand flash
    Am I right?
  • The following command worked fine for you: "usbtool-win 1 hwinit.bin 0x80000000".
  • Then you copy/paste the following command in the Windows command prompt: "usbtool-win 1 zImage_dual_boot_installer_ILI9331  0x80600000".
  • After that, the Windows command prompt spits out a lot of non-understandable text.
  • And boom! You're stuck with a Dingoo with a black screen and not the white/blue screen (see picture below)?

Figure 1. The screen that does not appear on Frank Buse's Dingoo when trying to flash the nand chip.

Am I right? If so, I think the dual boot driver is not compatible w/ Windows Vista service pack XX 64 bit (dual processor?). If I were you I'd try to find some with a 32 bit version of WinXP. Probably the easiest option.

Exact same thing is happening to me, I've tried xp on a P4, and Vista32 on a dual processor.

This is with a china chip model.

It seems that many people with a 'non-pawed' dingoo (china chip drivers) have this problem, and since this is the only model of dingoo to continue to be produced, the problem will only increase.

It is my opinion that a new dual boot installer and guide need to be produced for china chip dingoo's

I have PAWED Dingoo's with China Chips...and installed Dingux no problem.
You need to use XP.

Did you REMOVE the Chinachip drivers like all guides say??
