Officially the "HK" Dingoo does not exist.

?Regarding the HK console, there has been complete confusion and misinformation. The official word is that there is no HK or non-HK version, they only manufacture one version of the console. However, one of their ex-employees has been working with competitors to spread false information and rumors on the Internet (quoting them). In the meantime, our ShopTemp partners confirm that they have definitely spotted fake clones on the electronics market in Shenzhen, but these are quite easy to tell apart and the cost price is much lower than the real thing.

I'm curious, how do they account for the "HK" versions that people own, the new unbricker tool just for them, the hardware differences (internal memory, batteries), and the different shells with different logos?

What is more interesting is that if the "HK" version isn't real then how can they account for the response I originally received, a response the shoptemp team says was direct from Dingoo Digital?

"Yes, we are selling the export version. I've received confirmation that the Dingoo HK model was a manufacturing defect, it?s just a product series that was faulty."

wow, that's one bitchy forum, thought i was a grumpy bastard but those guys take the freaking cake

they're probably trying to cover up some huge blunder someone made, but personally i say drop the whole damn issue, it was better before when people just dealt with the fact they had a slightly dodgy dingoo, now everyone's throwing rumours left right and center, but what's really the point?

People need to shut up about this already.

Whatever the case may be, there have been NO problems with my HK Dingoo.

I?d like to know if they still have this terribly little 1000mah battery inside... Any chance you already opened yours?  ;D

all "bitching" aside the problem here is that dingoo digital is denying the existence of the "HK" dingoo, when we know it to be real. that?s fine if you feel this should be dropped, but it does not change the fact that the company is now telling the public lies.

what will happen with the new system they are going to release, the a330? will that have a problematic version that they later deny ever existed?

what about official support the the "HK" dingoo. if it wasn't for joyrider, dingoo-digital-usa, and mth, many people who did experience a problem would be sitting on a wasted $80. money doesn't come for free, $80 is $80.

So the issue here is whether or not they are denying that they make/made the HK model?

Some guy who SAYS he's getting the answers from the inside claims something, and all of a sudden it's true? Hasn't DD already said many times to many people that they do indeed make the HK?

Perhaps these temp people are misunderstanding something, or have had a miscommunication, or perhaps you are misunderstanding that whole "only one console" thing that DD supposedly said.

I'm still pretty confused on what this thread is suppose to be about, exactly. I guess I'm just stupid.

Jesse: my point was that i found it interesting that Dingoo Digital is denying the existence of the "HK" branded dingoo.

i thought others might care to know the official team doesn't support some of their product, product some of the people here own.

i know for a fact that the info came from dingoo digital. i know the guys involved with shoptemp, i know who is in china, i know where they are and what they do, etc. that post that talks about the denial of the "HK" dingoo did come from the horses mouth, so to speak.

anyways, no one seems to care about news like this so i'll drop it.

do what you wish with this thread.

I read that differently. I think it's saying that there are HK and non-HK branded Dingoos out and about, but internally there is no difference, i.e. it's not an HK version, it's just the normal version with a HK serial. I've heard talk that newer Dingoos without the HK branding have the same memory thing as the HK versions, you'll have to forgive me, I can't remember the specifics, but it's something to do with newer versions having the memory made up of 2x2GB chips rather than 1x4GB... or something like that. Point being there are older and newer versions of Dingoos, and some of the newer versions have HK branding.

Branding, pawprints and flash layout aside, there's still a functional difference though right?

The so-called HK models require a separate / different flasher and required apps and emulators to be patched in order to work. What is that difference? Is it something in the CPU chip?

I'm very interested in this because as I've said in other threads, my Dingoo looks like a 'normal' one inside and out yet it only works with the patched apps & emulators and only the hk-modified flasher works. The 'normal' flashers give me the red unauthorized screen.

So however you slice it, there is a difference. I really want to know what the difference is.

The difference is at the hardware level in the memory and a couple other things to pin point it down would take an electrical engineer. It's not the CPU as a Jz4740 is a Jz4740

Dingoo Technology is the original group from Shenzen Dingoo Digital CO, LTD; There was a split in the company and rather then deal with all the hype and confusion and problems.

That have now arisen with the fake disinformation floating around of whether the HK model existed didn't exist bs that official_dingoo and others spread they changed the website site domain and company name.

As the associate that left the company owned Dingoo888.cn and has started to spread all kinds of rumors all forums that the Dingoo HK was fake that the USb charger will make the battery explode on and on and on.

So to distance themselves from the on and on and on BS and badgering they changed the website and company name. I'm dealing with the same people and company I have dealt with from day one on this venture started back in March 2009. I deal with the same sells manager and the same team of people at Dingoo that I always have.

There is so much rumor and misinformation following from all directions as of late that to be honest I quit trying to keep up with it all. But yes to answer the question Dingoo Technology is the proper company and there was a parting of the waves with certain people from the company.

The proper site is Dingoo.HK not Dingoo888.com or Dingoo888.cn

Hopefully this straigtens up this mess as this will be my last post on the matter....

Will just say "Some guy who SAYS he's getting the answers from the inside claims something, and all of a sudden it's true? "

Some proofs would be good in this case.

Dingoo-digital-usa deals directly with the people in china. If he says something, it has, in my humble opinion, much more weight, then all the other internet rumours, that are floating around. How should he give you any "proofs". For such stories there aren't any "proofs". All you can ask, is the source, that is telling the story is trustworthy or not?
And in my case, I think Dingoo-digital-usa is trustworthy, cause he is one of the two biggest Dingoo resellers outside china and he has direct contact to the manufacturers of the A320 and he is supporting the Dingooscene for quite a while now, with things like the HK Patchtes or with digging up obscure hardware documents, that help devs to understand the Dingoo better.
I don't really see any reason, why I shouldn't believe him.

There really isn't any mystery other then all the misinformation all over the place I have given the facts as they are to straighten the confusion.

You can believe them or not believe them and I agree this and the thread above about confusion should be closed also as the facts I have given have not changed much and the issue for most part with HK not functioning are resolved.

There are enough threads regarding who the real Dingoo company is, and they all seem to end in people needlessly flaming each other.

Dingoo-Digital-USA and I have been in contact with a sales rep at Dingoo.hk, which serves as a confirmation that this is the real Dingoo company.

This thread is now closed

edit:

I've made a new board for this kind of discussion. Re-opening the thread, be more sensitive towards others.
