Hope for Dingux on Gamebox

From Dingoonity:Re: Gamebox GBX-1001« Reply #91 on: February 21, 2011, 10:25:48 AM »Not really. It's been proven that we can replace the internal software of the Gamebox using USB debug mode. It's pretty clear that getting Dingux running will not be too hard because the hardware is quite similar to the Dingoo. Right now, the guys in the spanish forum are trying to get a clean dump of the stock software, which would allow us to experiment with linux and go back to stock later. This will just need some time...« Last Edit: February 21, 2011, 12:31:17 PM by Xtreme2k »

I leave the master explains, just over the hill, more about this release and tamém about installing the program on your Dingoo:As mentioned in the post above, here's a version alpha (rev. 1305) of EasyRPG. Actually it is already available for other platforms since the 8.2 days, but have not had much free time during the week to compile it for Dingux.Before anything, it is worth remembering that the battle scenes are not yet functional. I know that's what most of you expected to version alpha , but they only began to be outlined and some revisions later. Moreover, still are not working the load and save, vehicles and some menus are only implemented in version RPG2K.Unfortunately, there are also some problems unique to dingoo: for reasons unknown so far, everything was much slower, even doi…

User launches Brazilian port ZX81 emulatorDingueiros Comrades,The Brazilian fighter Ricardo Leite launched Dingux to the port of a ZX81 emulator. This port , based on the current version of the emulator sz81 , emulates the PC's English ZX81 Sinclair Research . This microcomputer, which was marketed from 1981 to 1984, was a bestseller at the time. In Brazil there were clones of that machine with different amounts of memory configurations (TK82, TK82c, the TK85 Microdigital and also the CP200 and CP200s Prológica ).Below are some controls on the emulator:X - Space
A + X - Write the symbol for pound ("£")

More progress on Dingux for the Dingoo GA330

Booboo reports:Booting the GA330Just a few tech comments I left out in the previous post due to lack of time... but after a quick clarification about ChinaChip:
They have a lot of open fronts in a very competitive market and a limited set of resources, I assume that if the project has been put on hold is because they had no choice. Note however that they're still providing information and support, but with some limitations.
As I said, I have schematics, docs (which suck but are just what they have) and BSP code. I'm now working on the tools to boot code on the GA330 through the USB port, and as soon as I get it working and a kernel booting with a serial console, I'll publish it all (but I still believe it will be of little use to other developers without the docs and BSP). I don't like to be the bottleneck, but that's how things are now.
Now for the tech details:
The CC1800, like the JZ4732 and other SoCs alike, has severa…

Update from Booboo on Dingux for A330

Update on dingux for the GA330It's been way too long since the last entry. First I delayed it a bit just to have something actually substantial to write, and then then stretched it a bit longer, and well, here we are.
After coming back from China I had a list of tasks I had agreed with the ChinaChip management and engineers to get dingux up and running on the A330 in the near term. There was also the possibility of they sponsoring the development. To make a long story short, I was willing to anything between working on my spare time for free and being hired full time, and I was expecting something in between: I'm way too expensive for full time dedication (plus it's probably too soon for that) and while I'd be happy to work in my spare time, that would of course come with no commitment to any schedule or even to completion.
Since then, there's been some kind of priority rearrangement in ChinaChip and the "dingux on the A330" project a…

Dingoo features in Folha de S Paulo

One thing I love about the Dingoo is how it just keeps popping up where it might least be expected. This time, it gets prestige coverage in one of Brazil’s most influential papers:Folha de S.Paulo, known simply as Folha, is a Brazilian daily newspaper founded and continuously published in São Paulo since February 19, 1921. Owned by the Frias de Oliveira family since 1962, it has Brazil's largest circulation since 1986.[2] Alongside O Globo and O Estado de S. Paulo, Folha is considered one of the most influential newspapers in the country.[3][4]The newspaper is considered to have played a major role during the military dictatorship. With the return of press freedom, it became an important channel for public expression. Folha also had an important role during the impeachment of President Fernando Collor de Mello in 1992.[5] Nowadays, it remains a very important newspaper, with a higher level of influence among other media vehicles in Brazil, the reason why it was chosen by Wikileaks

Gamebox videos – good news, and bad news!

Here at Dingoo-scene, we’ve been waiting anxiously for news of the first Gamebox reviews. Waiting so anxiously, as it happens, that we missed the first video from, uh, a week ago: and indeed, several more: Here are some (somewhat unhelpful) pics of the insides:… all of which makes me think to fly over to Hongkers, so I can instantly grab one from the source, where such gaming goodness can emerge, overnight, with no fanfare, from the primeval manufacturing stew that gave us all the Dingoos there ever were. That is until of course, I realised that some more news has emerged on this unit, and it’s not all good:http://www.dealextreme.com/p/gamebox-multi-game-platform-tv-video-game-console-with-dual-shock-joypad-gamepad-set-pal-ntsc-54070If you are reading this, stop thinking about buying this!!
