There are also devices with Ingenic inside that are in a repro GBA or GBA SP shell. They aren't included here because they are almost a fraud. Anyway, for more informations on those units visit this thread: Nintendo GBA & GPA SP Clones (SHELL) with Ingenic inside.




FAQ:

What about other devices not included in the list?
If they aren't included in this list they don't belong here or they haven't been added yet. Anyway every Ingenic JZ47xx device will be listed here except each one that already own a section (Ben Nanonote, Dingoo A320/A330/A380, GameGadget, GCW Zero, Gemei x760+/Gemei A330).
Every device listed here has a Custom Firmware?
Not necessarily, however devices with a CFW will surely be included in this list.
What I need to do before flashing a CFW on my device?
When they come with internal/external SD you should definitely use one of your SD (a good quality one if possible) instead of the one that comes with the device. Otherwise if the device doesn't need an SD you have not so much to worry about, just use common sense and take a backup before flashing the OS.
Are there some trusted stores to buy these kind of devices?
It depends on what you mean for "trusted". Rarely who produce this devices also directly sells them, so it's up to you to choose which store to trust.





For additional informations visit Steward's website and Jutleys' website.
If you want to read an interesting blog visits Obscure Handhelds.
There are also two Discord Chat (1, 2) where you can talk about this kind of devices.

This is a work in progress guide, if you have suggestion to improve the guide just write it up here!

RetroGame



MAIN THREAD



The RetroGame is an handheld with a shell based on the one from the Revo K101+, then partially changed in the RetroGame Plus. Due to this similarity many called it, erroneously, K101 Pro.

/!\ THERE ARE DIFFERENT VERSION OF THE RG, THEY ARE NOT THE SAME, YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW WHICH ONE YOU OWN TO FLASH THE CORRECT FIRMWARE, BE AWARE OF THIS /!\

First of all you need to know which version you own. Don't worry, it's extremely easy! To accomplish this you only need to remove the battery cover and then the battery of your device, at this point you will see (written on the PCB) something like "RETRO-GAME-V*.*" followed by a date, like this example photo.



Screen: 3 inches 320x480
CPU: JZ4760 mips / JZ4760B mips 528mhz-600mhz
RAM: 128M DDR2
Internal memory: 4GB
Battery: Replaceable BL-5B 890 mAh

Battery:
Any battery that have more power than the stock battery is probably fake (like BL-5B 2100mAh or BL-5B 1390mAh).

Screen protector:
You can order a custom screen protector from an online service or buy a pre-made screen protector. The best choice here is a Tempered Glass, otherwise you can still use a PET one.
# Tempered Glass - AFUNTA (BEST FIT)
# Tempered Glass - Deerekin
# PET - Deerekin (Crystal Clear, HD Clear TPU, Nano-coating) - The best one are the Nano-coating.

Protective case:
Generally speaking any DS, DS Lite, DSi or 3DS case should do the trick, more or less. Some of them could be too small or too big.

The LDK is an handheld in a compact shell and has the same hardware as the RetroGame (RG) v2.1 so is fully compatible with the same CFW. The two versions has different hardware, the vertical one has the JZ4760B, instead the horizontal one has the older JZ4760.

RetroMini



MAIN THREAD



The RetroMini is a pretty little handheld with a design reminiscent of GB/GBC. Probably based on what should have been the unreleased K101 Mini. It houses the same Game Boy Micro screen (or at least very similar) so OEM and replacement screens will work. You can find models branded "RETROMINI" or unbranded as well as models with different flash memory (some of them are hynix and some other samsung).



Screen: 2.0 TFT  240x160
CPU: JZ4725B mips 360 mhz
RAM: 32MB DDR2
Internal memory: 512MB Nand
Battery: Replaceable Li-Ion BL-5C 1020 mAh (approximately 5HRS Playtime)
Dimensions: 7.0.x10.5x2.2 cm
Weight (with battery): 103 grams

The GameBox is an home console and shouldn't be confused with the handheld EXEQ GameBox (GBA SP clone). There are two version, one with a green motherboard and one with a red motherboard.



CPU: JZ4755 mips
RAM: 128M SDRAM
Internal memory: 2GB-4GB
Powered by: AC 100~240V EU plug

The fan could be swapped with a higher quality one of the same size. Here is a picture of the stock fan: LINK

# Custom Firmware - NOT READY YET

[...]

This device isn't getting a modified "custom" firmware like the RS-97, so calling it a custom firmware might be a misnomer.

Well, never say never  ;)

To clarify, I use "a modified (existing) firmware" as the definition for custom firmware. OpenDingux is not based on any existing firmware supplied by a manufacturer.
