Here's a X-mas present.
Anyone remember this device from circa May 2011?
Serious work was done by Booboo on getting dingux onto it, but he hasn’t been involved in the scene for quite some time, and there has been no action on the Gemei GA330 device since. So Steward doing this offers a sliver of hope:
Hi, after one day working to disassembly Booboo's rom.bin(SDCard binary file).
It took a long time (relatively speaking) but Nathan Morgan built his own mini-laptop using a Raspberry pi and readily available bits and bob. The whole thing will cost you a little more than the $35 for the Raspberry Pi alone, but is still a considerably quicker and cheaper option than waiting on an Openpandora … read the whole story here.
Gotta love the bulk that this thing ends up being! Eats iphones for lunch.

Go here to enter!!
Willgoo have lowered the price of the YDPG17 to $69.99 from its original 80.99! The YDPG17 is Yinlip’s challenger to the JXD S60X series, but has a better build quality and screen overall. At these crazy prices, they won’t last …
Heck, used to be a single N64 cart would’ve cost you more than this pittance. So click here to get one for Christmas, at this new great price!
Yinlips has now released their new 7 inch open gaming tablet, the YDPG 27!
You can get one here from Willgoo for $119.99, postage included.
Here are more details:

What better way to enjoy Christmas than with some quick MAME TMNT on a 7” portable screen? Here’s that link from Willgoo again, if you’d like to buy one this festive season.
Midway into writing a review of the new Archos Gamepad, DeenOX reports:

Follow that discussion here!
And the great folk at openconsoles.com have written a massive test here, for the exciting new Archos android tablet that may actually DO IT ALL (read this!)! It’s on sale now, but only in Europe. Can anyone report in on where this can be bought?
The review is in French, so if you can stomach the google translate, I offer the below as a public service with many thanks to openconsoles.com:
We tested the Archos Gamepad for you!
Appointment was given Sunday with CAJL, administrator www.jbmm.fr/ in a Parisian brasserie to put my fingers gamer on the new tablet Archos: the Gamepad.
For those who do not know CAJL jbmm.fr and I invite you to read the interview he granted us cordially at the following link: Interview.
It should be noted that these first impressions are more focused on the gaming console. Specs, part multimedia benchmarks and others are the strong point of CAJL ;) You can find the test here: Test CAJL .
And for others who remained trapped in their cave, a few reminders on the Gamepad.
Introduction to the Gamepad:
This is a tablet / console game running Android, provided physical controls to play without using the touch screen. As a gamer and especially retro -gamer, I must admit that the touch to play I have never packed. Apart from a few exceptions such as ScummVM, we must admit we do not find the flexibility and speed of the physical controls of yesteryear.
Following the current fashion some well-known Chinese consoles on Open Consoles (JXD, Yinlips), Archos us lay a machine rather well endowed in terms of both power in simplicity.
First, some specs, so that we know what we are talking about:
- Android 4.1
Grip and ergonomics:
Having neither hands nor lumberjack fairy fingers (basically hands "normal"), it is really like any tablet and it is relatively thin as the controls are accessible easily.
It will be virtually no need to remove your hands once a game is started, since all the buttons are placed near each other. No need to get on one side of the console to find the START or SELECT, they are in range of thumb movement.
I have not been able to try the L2 and R2 buttons, I do not know if their location is really wise and practical to use. It will be used either with the front of the thumb, or release the analog stick or twist a finger to press it. A test on the emulator PSX particular :)
The screen - multi touch:
The image quality and resolution are of good quality. The colors stand out well and bright screen as you can see on the video. Being in a dimly lit, I could play without problem.
It is very pleasant to navigate through the menus with the touch meets the finger and the eye. Not had the opportunity to test the multi, but in general it does not worry too much so do not worry.
Obviously, the resolution is not suitable for some games on emulators, so it will play options for the best possible display depending on the platform. If you want the Full Screen, expect a distortion of the image, but this is not due to the console of course. So it is according to your personal tastes you enjoy or not the size of the screen. A 3.5 "or 4" is generally more appropriate.
This is a point that I regret a lot of other consoles, the rear sound is often worse and especially masked by the fingers when playing. No worries here.
Here is one of the most important and crucial to use this machine as a real game console
There are good and bad points in my opinion.
* Side good points, we have all the controls at your fingertips and it's very nice. I did not expect to find L2 and R2 so it's a good surprise.
* In all games and emulators that I've tried, buttons and triggers responded perfectly, without lag as I could have on the DROID X360. They have the same 'feel' than some consoles like Yinlips Chinese (G18), ie they do not 'clack-clack' and we should not support such a nag to trigger action.
* As I said earlier they are generally well placed (including START and SELECT) and finds its feet quickly.
* Two analog pads separated: this is another VERY good point. Suffice it to watch the video with Shadowgun to realize that it becomes very easy to get around and look in all directions as we can do on our nextgen consoles (PS3, 360 ...)
* THE pleasant surprise this console, it is unquestionably the map included in the system. As you could catch a glimpse of the video, there is a tray icon that allows Android keys directly map physical versus tactile keys.
This means that you can assign a hardware button to a button touch easily and even export our setup for a friend who loves the Gamepad and our mapping. This is a simple text file that you can tweak to adjust the settings.
Archos announces a hundred titles compatible with this map including Shadowgun, Assassin's Creed, ePSXe, Nova 3 ect ... List available on request ;)
* However, and this is a personal opinion, I think the D-PAD buttons are a bit too spaced a few millimeters. Caused the problem: make diagonal.
* Many retrogamers will want to replay the SNES or NEO-GEO particular, and out of hadokens may be a little hard for some. I remember that I was not able to test it very long, but that little detail bothered me. Just watch the video to get an idea of the spacing.
* Regarding the analog pads, I also regret to find those consoles and JXD Yinlips Chinese guy. Ie pads a little hard and inflexible as it can have a 3DS in particular.
Side games and emulators:
Side emulators, I tested the N64, PSX and Megadrive (I wanted to do more, but there was no time). Overall the results are good, I have not detected a problem with key combos. But if you know: the triggers that do more because we press another button at the same time, or two button presses give another action as a START or SELECT ... Grrrrrr.
N64 for anything in particular. Mario Kart turned without jerks.
On the PSX, I tested quickly Tekken 3 and I think it lacked a bit of speed compared to the original, you'll have to compare.
On the Megadrive, including Sonic, I could feel a very slight frameskip (same set) but again it will test deeper.
And here is the video of the mini-test, enjoy: D
I think those who have pre-ordered the game pad should not be disappointed with their purchase. I wonder if Santa is not going to file a under the tree: D
From what I have been told CAJL, part multimedia (movies, internet) is very good. The screen size can make it enjoyable internet browsing and watching movies.
Regarding the gaming part, I think we are dealing with a machine in good quality / price ratio. Having a French product is a definite plus, especially with respect to the support. It may be much easier to access that service when buying abroad, including China.
I was pleasantly surprised integrated map that will quickly and easily configure its keys. More be separated analog pads is a huge plus for all FPS games.
Autonomy seems excellent as hopefully about 5:30 before use through the charging box.
Now she can not please everyone. Its size can not store it in a pocket, so plan a suitable protective cover for transport.
I did not like the D-PAD as I explained earlier due to the spacing of the buttons, so I turned quickly to the analog stick instead.
At each now has his own opinion ;)
For those who are interested, you can order it now on Amazon Marketplace and Rue du Commerce, happy hunting: D And by the way do not forget to read the excellent article CAJL: Link

Re: [SCRIPT] Update!! Naxeras 1.2 RCO for JXD s602 Root, Clean, Optimice and more!!!
Only issue, you'll loose the front camera if you don't modify the script.
To fix this you only have to go into the files/clean folder open build.prop and modify the ro.gplus.CMOS_SENSOR_2 value like this:

Starting! 2012 Christmas Contest- Week #2
This week’s contest: Create a Slogan to Willgoo
Still envy the winner in our week #1 contest just because you are not good at photographic? Well, you still get chance to win as we have three more contests in this month. No more PS this week but we require you to create a slogan to Willgoo.
1. Slogan can be a short phrase or some words. Keep them as short as possible.
Want to get one more prize, Mr winner from Week #1? Yes, it is allowed as every people can enter as many times as they can- no matter they win or not in our certain contest.
The prize for this contest is one unit Yinlips YDPG17:
Remember, go to this dingoonity thread to enter!
JXD has now released its new JXD S5300 model – essentially the popular (for this sort of thing) JXD S602 with a 5 inch screen and form factor, and you can get one now from Willgoo here for a mere $89.99! This baby talks to the JXD S602 – see the video below. Think of this as the JXD S602 XL of the JXD 602’s, a la Nintendo’s NDS XL range … oh fuggit, JXD really needs to work on their marketing budget!
I’ll let willgoo do the talking:
Good news! The first batch stock of JXD S5300 had been well received. You can place your order for it now here!
An interesting finding from us- JXD S5300 can be linked with JXD S602 to play games:
What do you think of this new device? It is a new device whose features and design combines JXD S5110 and JXD S602- the real capacitive touch screen and with the WiFi-Direct Multi-playing and key mapping, whose features that JXD S5110 do not have. And it owns 5 inches capacitive touch- not sure if it is 5 points as we need to test it, bigger screen than JXD S602 and better touch screen control.
You can compare it with JXD S602 and S5110. We will bring you more details for this device in these coming days.
Here is the general gaming reviewing that we took from JXD:
At a glance on JXD S5300: (information gained from JXD official site. We will test the device once we get the prototype)
1. Manufactured Root+ USB debugging
2. 5.0 inch(800x480), capacitive touch screen
3. All games icon display, display all the games in the machine and TF card
4. 1GHz CPU+ 512MB DDR3
5. WiFi Direct Flight
6. Virtual Buttons Mapping
7. HDMI Dual Screen Display
Here are pictures taken by Willgoo:- note: the cleaning cloth with Willgoo logo is a small gift for you!
The Testing from Antutu- I am sorry I am so bad at taking photos on it. Hope you guys can see it.

Anyone game to test it on those consoles we know and love?
DOSBox for Dingoo A-380/A-320e
Don't ask for the source code because I didn't recompile it. I've been reading about DOSBox on the Ritmix RZX-50 and I thought if it's possible it should work on the Dingoo A-380 too. I decided to give it a try and changed the configuration settings and to my surprise it runs on the Dingoo A-380.
Here's a test version for the Dingoo A-380 and A-320e. I hope it's good enough to run some games.
Source Code: http://www.ask-slaanesh.com/dosbox/src
apeine from our forums reports:
A new gamekeyboard version (3.0.0) just came out yesterday, and YES, it does work on ICS. There is a new option "Advanced input detection", along with mapping all buttons and all hardkeys to such buttons. Just run your prefered game, position your controls and hide the keyboard! Voilá! Games running with physical buttons.
The download links for the Dingoo A-380 CFW are changed because there's to much traffic on my Dropbox account. I don't want them to close my account so I uploaded everything (CFW, tools, open-source games and emulators) on openhandhelds.

I build a new version for the Dingoo A-380/A-320e.
It isn't perfect but this is the best I can do. The "beep" still doesn't work and the last pixels sometimes get stretched on the right and bottom side of the screen.

Note: You need an External MicroSD to use firmware V2.00.25 and later or you cant use the Audio Player, Video Player, Pictures and E-Book because the folders to store the files are moved to the external MicroSD card. I did this to have more space for game ROMs on the internal MicroSD card. Open-Source Emulators is linked to the "emulator" folder on the external MicroSD card. Open-Source Games is linked to the "game" folder on the external MicroSD card. SDL Games is linked to the "sdlgames" folder on the external MicroSD card. They show only the dge files. I've used an online translation program to translate Open-Source Emulators, Open-Source Games and SDL Games for the firmware. Let me know when it's wrong so I can fix it.
NEO-GEO zip format:
Download and extract the Dingoo A380 FBA Conversion Tool from Dingoo Technology. Copy the neogeo.zip from the rom folder to your Dingoo A380 "game" sub folder "neogeo" with your neogeo rom zips. Don't try to rename the zips or it won't work.
Note: A list of Neo-Geo games that work as a zip can be found here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-technology-a380/games-confirmed-to-work-on-dingoo-a380/msg49383/#msg49383
Thanks to retrodd and Santo for making this list.
Original Dingoo A-380 emulators:
It's now possible to change and save the emulator settings. Changing brightness doesn't work with FC/Nintendo. Frame skipping isn't possible. The setting always returns back to 0.
Warning: Don't update the firmware if it's important for you to have the equalizer settings for the Audio Player. Dingoo Technology removed it in firmware V2.0016.

Our very nice friends from Willgoo have a special on these little tablets that you can buy, play with and then use – at this crazy price - as a coaster if you wish. And what a coaster it would be!
Ok, so the screen size is, well, perfect for a coaster, and it’s resistive, but it does run Android 4.0, and you get a 4GB TF card thrown in, which you can use as an even littler coaster. Can’t resist? Click here to get one and help me out too.

Over at obscurehandhelds, news has broken on these 2 new devices from Yinlips. Head on over to read more there: http://obscurehandhelds.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/yinlips-joins-the-gamepad-party/#comment-3456
Gidday faithful readers!
I started this site in March 2009 during a bad patch at work – back then, it was daily floggings until morale improved (it never did, by the way) and the one bright shining outlet for all that corporate repressed creativity was being able to do something fun, like follow a little known Chinese gadget called the Dingoo A320. Well, fun for me, anyway.
Here’s the very first post: http://dingoo-scene.blogspot.com.au/2009/03/welcome-to-dingoo-scene.html
March 2009. Gee, Michael Jackson was alive! Obama was popular! Openpandora wasn’t actually late yet, and Booboo still cared!
The little world that Dingoo occupied has mostly rocked on. In many ways though, the hunt continues, as we are no closer to the ultimate handheld retro gaming device for the miser in us all. After all, that’s the #1 joy of these things: that they cost less than a
Dry Thai Feather Massage (without the special) single PS3 game. In this space, the next big thing appears to be the GCW Zero, which repackages all that the A320 did – but properly - and runs on a faster chip to boot (punny, dude). I have no doubt, if it’s ever delivered, that it’ll please – for a while, at least until the next cheap, big thing. What’s not to love about this scene?
But enough about it all, let’s talk about … this site. What would you like to see more of? Less of? What peeves you off about this place? What would bring you here more? What features might you find useful? What you you really want to know?
What do you want?
Tell me, frankly and without fear of blackbanning, mainly because: (1) you can always leave a comment as “anonymous”, and (2) I really do need all the readers I can get.
Let me be clear – it’s just l’il ol’ me doing the
cutting and pasting blogging here, so no promises that anything anyone aspires to will ever be delivered, but I’d really like to know anyway, for when this really happens. If I get more than 100 comments (c’mon, each of you readers can leave 25 comments), I’ll post a picture of my 1/60 Perfect Grade Zeta Gundam doing Hey Sexy Lady.

Sonic Robo Blast 2 - OpenDingux
NOTE: I believe the two problems mentioned above do not occur in GCW-Zero, especially the slow down, since its hardware specs are much better than the Dingoo A320. There may be many other problems not detected by me, since I have not tested the program extensively.
Thanks to Dingoonity and Qbertaddict for the news!

Yinlips YDPG19 - How I Rooted Mine and Removed the Bloat. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Note: I'm only providing this information so I can reference it later if I need to. This worked perfectly for me, but if you mess up your own device, then Mr. Willgoo will get another sale when you re-buy one for yourself. In other words, do this at your own risk, you alone are responsible for anything bad happening to your device.
This guide won't be for beginners. From what I've seen by watching all the YouTube videos about the previous generation Yinlips devices, the ROM, Recovery Manager and software on this one is set up differently from the YDPG18, YDPG18A, etc. Some of the notable differences I've found are as follows:
Cannot boot into recovery using the hardware keys. I could only do this through ADB, but even then, the recovery manager was NOT very helpful. (If you ever need to do this, just plug the device to your computer and run "adb reboot recovery".)
Prerequisites are as follows:
Knowledge of ADB and ADB or the Android SDK is already installed and ready to go (with the platform-tools folder). ADB is quite simple. If you want to continue and have never used ADB, Google the Android SDK and get it set up. Then Google, "Android ADB" and get familiar with this awesome tool.
Let's first fix root so we can give permissions to our rooted apps. My directions are for Linux, but if you are using Windows, the directions should be very similar. The only real differences between my instructions for Linux and what you will need to do when on Windows are:
Let's start at the desktop where you should have downloaded the zip file we need:
Extract the zip file you downloaded from androidsu.com like so:
Now, let's organize and move the su binary you'll need to your desktop (note the period at the end):
Next we need to fix su on your android device, but first we need to remove your current su binary:
We're back to the commandline in Linux (command prompt in Windows). We are now going to push the new su binary to the correct location(s) and fix it's permissions:
Lastly, reboot the device from the commandline in Linux:
You have now successfully installed a su binary that Superuser app from the Play Store will work with properly. So once you are back on the home screen in Android, fire up Google Play and install Superuser. Start up Superuser and check if there are any updates to the binary. It should say you have the current one.
Replace Superuser with SuperSu:
On my Yinlips, I went further and installed SuperSu from the Play Store. When I started up SuperSu, I gave it permissions with Superuser when prompted. Then I closed SuperSu. After that I revisited the Play Store and uninstalled Superuser. SuperSu now handles all my root permission requests. Afterwards, I rebooted the device.
Install ES File Explorer and Browse as root:
Now, I recommend ES File Explorer over RootExplorer. Once you install ES File Explorer, go into the settings. Under the root settings, give ES File Explorer root access and grant the permissions when prompted.
Perform Some Cleanup:
From here on out, you are free to install Titanium Backup if you want to remove programs. I personally removed many of the unwanted programs manually using ES File Explorer or adb from the /system/apps folder. The apps I removed myself include the following:
While some of these apps were free with the device, we all know they were pirated. Not that I have an issue with pirating necessarily, but with these being pirated, they will never get updates. I already had most of these purchased for my Galaxy Nexus, so I just reinstalled the ones I had onto my Yinlips
Remove the GaGa Media Player app Permanently!:
Next I went to Settings --> Applications and uninstalled all the apps I was able to. To get rid of the GaGa media player app, after uninstalling it from within Settings, I fired up ES File Explorer and navigated to /vendor/extra. For some reason whenever you uninstall the GaGa media player app, it reinstalls after a reboot. Well, remove it from /vendor/extra and it won't any more.
Hope this helps someone else with the YDPG19 out! Thanks Willgoo for all your help and quick responses to my ordering questions!
