Trouble Flashing Dingux
« on: May 12, 2011, 03:19:05 pm »
I'm having a little trouble flashing Dingux.  I have the files and the instructions...but the problem is the China Chip drivers.  I un-install them...but, when I plug back in...it automatically re-installs them!  And it does not give me an option to not install them, it just does it, no dialogue box or anything.

Can anyone get me past this part of the flashing?  I'm using Windows XP.

I think once you'll install the dingoo USB boot drivers, it will save them into drivers library and then install them back automatically. If you'll do it with Device manager, isn't that some tick like "Delete software of this device"?
Sorry guys for not caring about dingoonity lately. It was nice to be with you, and maybe I'll come back, but not now...

OK...this is where I am confused.  I can uninstall the China Chip Drivers...but then, when I plug back in the dingoo, it automatically re-installs the China Chips.

Do I need to plug in IN USB MODE...rather than a straight plug back in?  And then..what steps do I take to install the desired drivers?

I have the files from th "Complete Idiot's Guide To Installing Dingux."  I guess I'm below a Complete Idiot, then...because I can't get past the China Chips, LOL.

Can you give me a step-by-step for getting around the China Chips?

Thank you!

Have you got your dingoo in RockBox mode (holding B while booting)? That's what you must do first.

OK, that is one thing I was doing wrong...I was just plugging back in.  The Complete guide was not too clear about that.

SO...after uninstalling the china chips...re-plug in but in USB mode.  THEN...do I run a file from the zip package I got?

I'm not quite sure how to proceed.

No, you must connect it to PC and then select "Install drivers manually". Then point your windows to directory with the drivers (inf file). It will install it and THEN use the USB tool.

OK, got it done, now!
Here is what was NOT clear in the instructions...

I uninstalled the Chin Chip Drivers...then hooked up in USB mode.
AT THAT POINT...a device showed up on the Device Manager...

Lib-USB-Win32 Devices
and under that
Jz4740 USB Boot Device (Rockbox USBtool)

THAT is the device to update the driver!!
You just have to update the driver with the unpacked files...and you are good to go.

Then you plug in in Rockbox mode, and open your command shell, and do your thing!

THIS was where I got confused, and the instructions were not very clear. 

Thank you so much for your help, I now have Dingux installed on my Dingoo!!

P.S. by the way, I noticed it re-installed the China Chip drivers again, once I plugged back in normally, but that doesn't matter once it has been flashed with Dingux.  You can access both the internal drive and the SD card as two different drive letters.
