Lol after googlin my issue, I got on this board:

Here's my contribute for the "freeze at Dingux splash screen" issue:

(note I have an 8gb sd, using windows XP)
- google "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" (it's an executable)
- format fat32

The noticable difference after formatting with the HP formatting tool is:
- the transferspeed of my SD is alot faster
- on previous attempts formatting with windows (even in CMD with 32k blocksize) i ended up with 7.7gb
   with HP tool I ended up with 7.9gb

Finishing touch:
- put zImage / rootfs / etc.... back on the sd
- hold SELECT en restart, IT WORKS!

How I got into this mess:
When I last shutdown the 0.35 pack, the next time I turned on my dingoo with SELECT,
it froze on splashscreen. This is because all the files on the SD were suddenly missing, and that's when the formatting issue pop up.
I even tried to flash the nand again and I nearly gave up on the problem.

Don't use SD cards from the brand 'integral' they do not work! I tried one on four XP machines at various patch levels. Formating and installing as per the troubleshooting guide and the dingoo failed to recognise the files. Although in the standard os it did see the card and the files on it. If anyone has started a list of SC cards that don't work please add this to it.

So, you tried it with another brand & it worked? :)
Write/save problems? Segmentation faults? Black screens? Read the Troubleshooting and FAQ guide first to fix your issues! :)
SD Card readonly/corruption issues? Chkdisk /F and steer clear from DMenu: use GMenu instead!

That's the intruiging part: "I have tried everything in the trouble shooting guide apart from trying another SD card".

No Kin, it was not the same you reformatted and I had to by a new card…I have to say this thing is amazing! Big thanks to anybody involved in boot, firmware and emulator creation.

i have this error
    * Observation:  Dingux error message:  cannot run '/usr/local/sbin/main': No such file or directory
    * Symptom: Main menu (shell) missing.
    * Cause: Dingux loads the local/sbin/main executable on start. If there is no file, nothing will execute.
    * Solution: Put a shell-script or application there, ideally a menu like Dmenu or DinguXMB. Or, if you want them both, check here.

but i cant figure out what to do once i know that this is whats wrong. i want to use gmenu2x and i really just have no idea about how to go about fixing this install error. help please

Download a menu like gmenu2x and change the local/sbin/main to run it, described in the readme of the menu.
Gmenu: http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingux-releases/gmenu2x-for-dingux-!

i have done as described and made folders local/gmenu2x and local/sbin with "main" from localpack 0.35 inside of sbin, but when booting install it still says that //usr/local/sbin/main doesn't exist or can't access. do i need to put /usr/ infront of local or is there some other thing that i'm missing? should i copy all of the contents of localpack 0.35 onto my sd and than try installing?

**edit**
copied everything from localpack0.35 and it worked

make sure you're in Administrator, and check to see if your card is formatted FAT32

It has nothing to do with the card as he's trying to flash the bootloader.
Also the error comes from within the usbtool. Be sure to check you typed the right command, not missed any digits, etc. Also check if your Dingoo is in usbboot mode.

Thanks, the format with this tool helped me with my dingux splash screen stuck :)
