Alien Grey posts new firmware for Dingoo A380

New Dingoo A380 firmware backup/unbricker.
Enabled NEO-GEO zip support.
Enabled CPS1 fba support.
Download and extract the Dingoo A380 FBA Conversion Tool from Dingoo Technology. Copy the from the rom folder to your Dingoo A380 neogeo folder with your neogeo rom zips.
It's also possible to convert CPS1 zip files to fba to store them in the Dingoo A380 CPS1 folder.
I also tried to enable sg support for SEGA Master System but it didn't work. There' only sound and no graphics.
I've tried to fix the emulator option issues but it also didn't work. It's strange that there's only 1.8mb of free space on the ext2 partition. It should be enough to save the emulator configuration files but it's impossible to copy them all to the EXT2 partition. Some of the files on the EXT2 are corrupt. I think that the reason why emulator settings can't be saved and some of the options can't be changed is be…

Chip’s mini review of JXD7100 (with capacitive screen)

Chip has posted a concise and informative review about the JXD7100 that get’s straight to the money shots:I have both the G18 and S7100.  As seems to be standard with Chinese PMPs, neither are perfect.
The S7100 has a much better dpad.  It's an actual dpad with a pivot in the middle, not just four buttons arranged like one.  I't not the greatest dpad in the world, but it's not so bad as to completely ruin the experience (like the G18).  The buttons on the S7100 feel better overall, with less squishiness and less "sticking" due to better tolerances on the buttons/holes.  
I got the S7100 with the capacitive screen, and that's really the only way to go these days.  I find the resistive screen on the G18 to be it's biggest weakness.  That said, 7" is really too big for 800x480 resolution.  Perhaps I'm just spoiled by high resolution smartphones and the 1024x600 IPS panel in the nook color, but the pixels on the S7100 seem enormous.  It'…

qbertaddict’s guide – How to install bitrider’s new YDPG18 Firmware

qbertaddict’s video is a great guide as always: As you can see from the post below, there is now some real potential for Android 2.3.4 to be released soon, if some clever community members do their clever thing … however, while we wait, I wouldn’t hesitate using in Bitrider’s new firmware.

Another YDPG18 with Gingerbread reported

Chip on Jan 26, 2012 04:16 PMin a comment here:I just got my G18 today, and I can confirm gingerbread also. are out there!Chip, bitrider posted this message on the Spanish GP32 forums yesterday – would you care to try this?:Well, to try to pave the way for everyone who receives a console with a firmware higher than we have and want to collaborate, I created a small application that simplifies the process. Instructions: - Rootea console - Install the attached application - Run the application and wait for it to end, may take a few minutes. - If all went well end up with a message: "Success!" and files in the folder will FirmwareDump micro-SD. - Copy the folder FirmwareDump micro-SD to PC, compress it and let me go. The folder contains two files "boot.img" (the kernel) and "system. tar "(the rest of the OS). The application is quite simple and not very polished in terms of what that user interface is concerned. …

Android 2.3 Gingerbread IS on Yinlips YDPG18 after all!

Kudos to jlpotocki from the Dingoo-Scene YDPG18 Forums for confirming that his recently shipped Yinlips YDPG18 (old model was ordered) comes with none other than Android Gingerbread 2.3!jlpotocki obtained the first available imaging device he could and sent through these pics:

And a video! : Android 2.3 has the potential to resolve the controller combo issues that have been experienced on this device, and may result in the analog stick really acting like an analog stick!Now for a dump and update! jlpotocki, you da man today!UPDATE 28/1/12: Sadly, it may be the case that new YDPG18 hardware models were shipped instead of the old ones, which would explain why 2.3 is on them … stay tuned
