Coolboy RS-97 (JZ4760 JZ4760B) (RetroGame 45$ Dingux handheld

Seems to be another emulator with the similar Ingenic chip as the Retromini, however this one comes preloaded with many different emulators. Also strangely, seems to come with the K1 Flash cart, according to the product images.

OpenDingux downloads and install instructions here:

Is that ingenic chip any more powerful than the dingoo a320. Seems weird that we're stuck with processors that are years and years old.

All the promo material says it's jz4725b. Are you sure you're correct?

Yes pretty sure holding select causes device to go into bootloader mode and it says those numbers when connected to my PC

We NEED better firmware for this BEAST! We need Opendingux support too. This could be the REVO-Dingoo revival no one was expecting...

So can the hacked in dmenu for the PAP-KIII Plus be used on this? Would be nice to see an OD handheld with nicer build quality.

Pretty cool to see Ingenic based Dingux consoles appearing though.

Btw this is now on sale at ?34/$46 through the OP's AliExpress link, same price as the PAP-KIII Plus:

Promo says it's the JZ4725B though, dunno if that's correct.
Handhelds:
GPD Win, GPD XD 64gb, Pap KIII-Plus, RS-97, RS-90, New Bittboy, 3DS XL, DSi XL, GBA SP, GBBC Clone, Gameboy Pocket, PSP Go,

Is there anyone here that can help us port OD to the K101 Pro device? What is needed in order to get this thing flashed up and booting OD? It uses a JZ7460. That chip is compatible with OD right?

Hoping someone with the knowledge steps up and lets us know if performance on this device can be improved. The one review i saw was favorable and something in this form factor would be great for me

Looking at the specs of the chip you mentioned, this device should have more power than the dingoo a320 correct? I know the gcw zero is the newest iteration of community supported open dingux compatible devices, but how would this stack up? Ive avoided the gcw zero all this time because for what it does, its a damn expensive gadget that is too big(for me) to be especially pocket friendly.

If ive gotten anything wrong or misunderstood something, please let me know. I know absolutely nothing about how these devices work, just trying to figure out if i should pick one up and if theres any hope for improvements with this device

picked up a "k101 pro", a retro mini, and a pap kiii (ended up getting the S model, will need to re-order a plus)

trying to decide which to work on, the retro mini looks a bit underpowered but I still might end up doing something with it. The pap kiii plus and this look roughly the same as far as power. The kiii plus looks like it's already getting some love, so I'll let them play and probably end up seeing what I can do on this k101 pro.

not going to promise anything, but I'll post anything I come up with.

EDIT: looks like this is going by a RS-97 on some other sites. I think labeling it a k101 device might be confusing esp considering it's not actually in the official revo product line, maybe we should start refering to it as a rs-97

So is the aliexpress link in the first post the R9 but the K101 pro because the product info specs are different to yours.Has anyone actually received the one in the link below from aliexpress is it a K101 Pro? or just a cheap chinese clone model?.

This one

Found a good video here for the retro game handheld

Bro, you will be awesome if you can figure out a way into getting it to boot Dingux/Opendingux. That would FIX everything. The emulators for the a320/a330/a380 are far superior and have better support and performance.
