The Dingoo A-380 CFW Version 2.11.08 is available for download.

New in CFW V2.11.08:
Moved swap to External MicroSD card to improve read/write speed.
Added SDL VICE 2.4.6 with sound fix for the Dingoo A-380.
Added new UAE4All build with sound fix for the Dingoo A-380.

The swap file is moved to the External MicroSD card in this version to improve the read/write times with the FinalBurn Alpha emulator. There's also an updated SDL VICE build with sound fix and a new UAE4All build with sound fix for the Dingoo A-380.
Lot's of Commodore love with this release.  :)
Thanks a lot to retrodd for his help with testing the new CFW and updated emulators.

What is VICE?
VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS, Win32, OS/2, Acorn RISC OS, BeOS, QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Amiga, GP2X, Dingoo, Syllable, SkyOS or Mac OS X machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit computers. The current version emulates the C64, the C64DTV, the C128, the VIC20, almost all PET models, the PLUS4 and the CBM-II (aka C610)

Note: Compiled with the OpenDingux toolchain. Remember to change the resolution from 320 pixels to 400 pixels on a Dingoo A-380 (with factory kernel) and a Dingoo A-320e. Tweaked for maximum performance with sound fix. Runs almost every game full speed with good sound. There's a sound bug in VICE or SDL that makes the sound terrible with VICE.
To work around this issue start a game. When the game is loaded and starts to run press the SELECT button on your Dingoo to enter the Configuration Menu. Go to the sound settings and disable the sound. Press the left twice to go back to the game. Repeat these steps to enable the sound again and enjoy your game with good sound like you expect it to be.  ;)
Enjoy.
