Yinlips reports no android 2.3 Gingerbread for Yinlips YDPG18 :( – ….

Fonseca9001 over on this thread on the Dingoo-Scene YDPG18 forum has some sad news to report:

Received an answer [From Yinlips about updating from 2.2 to 2.3]:

Dear Joao,
Thanks much for purchasing our product.
I am sorry to tell you that impossible to update the android OS from version 2.2 to 2.3.
Best Regards,

Boo hiss! Is it really impossible? Or is it just the case of Yinlips moving on? It’s been, after all, a good 5 weeks(!) since this device started the whole Android gaming console thing … The YDPG 18 must be past its prime:)

UPDATE: The above is quite wrong, as jlpotocki reports Android 2.3 on his recently received Yinlips YDPG18 on 26 Jan 2012 - http://dingoo-scene.blogspot.com/2012/01/android-23-gingerbread-is-on-yinlips.html ! This is big news; thanks jlpotocki

UPDATE #2: Sadly, it may be the case that new YDPG18 hardware models were shipped instead of the old ones, which would explian why 2.3 is on them … stay tuned


  1. Fucking piece of CRAP!!!!! This is what people / users get when they buy these Cheap ass handhelds. System wasnt even on the market for a good month, and they say theres no upgrade. Wat a fukn joke!

  2. Should had bought the JXD S7100 instead :)

  3. I just got my G18 today, and I can confirm gingerbread also.
