SDIO and Dingux
« on: April 06, 2010, 12:47:07 am »
Hello

I found that JZ4732 supports SDIO v1.0.
Have anyone tested SDIO Bluetooth/Wifi cards with Dingux?

p.s. Sorry for my english =)

All(As far i know) SDIO is SD only, dingoo has a mini-sd entrance, so incompatible.

A think All SDs are eletronically caompatible.
So you only need to create an adaptor =)

They are compatible, but a big-to-small adaptador isn't common, and they would be a umongous weirdo thing(cause a big card can't enter in a smaller one), but good luck trying.

It's just use a SD reader as reader, a mini-sd adapter as the output, some wires and it's done.

Dingux runs off an sd card, so the sd slot is occupied.
But even if it wasn't, I'm affraid there's a poor compatibility with sdio cards on linux.
Only one SDIO wifi chip (KS7010 Wi-Fi) is supported on linux, and I think they don't make it anymore.
As for bluetooth, I tried a toshiba SDIO card with the nanonote (which is almost the same hardware as the dingoo), and the system detects the card, but once I bring the interface up (hwconfig hci0 up), the kernel panics.

In fact, someone did an adapter like this for dingoo last year.
And posted in this forum, dont remember where =P
