qbertaddict’s Yinlips YDPG16 (G16) review!

No one does review videos on these things better than qbertaddict – so joy oh joy; check out his initial take on the Yinlips YDPG16:   qbertaddict: This is my new toy the YINLIPS YDPG16. It is an ANDROID based handheld that runs on version 2.3.4. The processor is running at 1.1 ghz by default and has 512 megs of DDR3 RAM. It has a 400 mhz MALI GPU as well. My version has 4 gigs of space on the main device and I installed at 16 gig micro sd card. There are some things that I don't like about this device which I mention in the video that can all be fixed with a custom rom or update from YINLIPS. The touchscreen is resistive not capacitve and still isn't very good but that is ok for me since I use this to play games that use hardware based controls. Find out more about it here: Looks like Yinlips has made progress towards fixing the soundlag in emulators issue:

Image writes to say: Currently, we have 8 units YDPG18 old version. 6 units are black colors and 2 units are white one. We combined this device with one Yinlips Pouch Bag and 4GB TF card as  a bundle sales. It is: Yinlips YDPG18 old version + Yinlips Pouch Bag+ 4GB TF Card only Only  $119.99 from here ! This could be among the last readily available A9 consoles left – while the sound lag problem in A10 YDPG18s is hopefully soon to be nothing bad a bad memory, you never know with Yinlips, do you? Why not grab some A9 insurance?:)

New JXD S5100 and S5110 Android Consoles

Thanks to b l@ck m@ge   for the news : Known specs: - Amlogic M3 (ARM Cortex A9 CPU, ARM Mali-400MP, 512MB DDR3) - Android 2.3 - 4GB internal storage - 5" 800*480 LCD with multi-touch - cameras: 0.3M (front) и 2M (back) for S5100 and one 0.3M (front) for S5110 - Wi-Fi, G-sensor I saw both on some Italian webshop, but the price of 159 euros (~208 bucks) for each one is quite high even for a nice 3DS rip-off with obsolete d-pad imho

md0 releases new Android 2.3.7 Yinlips TDPG18 Firmware

a10mod v2 - android 2.3.7 for YDPG18 A10 Given the recent disappointment with the latest official firmware I thought it would be nice to give you an alternative. Over the last couple of weeks I've been working on porting android 2.3.7 to the YDPG18 (A10). I'm now glad to report that the job is done, and we have a (fully) working firmware! From what I can tell everything works, but I may have missed a couple of things :) Here are the highlights of this firmware: - android 2.3.7 (full AOSP build) - *PARTIAL* sound lag fix; has nothing to do with the yinlips fix, as I used the old kernel version - may not be as good - performance enhancements: Antutu 2.7.3 reports 7-8% improvements in 3D performance and database IO - completely clean system; no software besides the bare necessities and no proprietary google apps - no ethernet or gsm support, as these wer

Italian fansite The Phantom Castle unboxes the Yinlips YDPG87. To paraphrase, this goes to … 87 . It must be better.

How to update the YDPG19 A10 (New) Model

The A10 version of the YDPG18 is rather more fiddly to update than the older A9 version. vandickk has written a great tutorial here to walk you through the steps involved: Kudos vandickk! And here is a Google translate: Yinlips update procedure YDPG18 (A10) This thread I'll start with the tutorial YDPG18 Yinlips Update (A10) [/ B], and later, if my schedule allows, gradually add other relevant information for this model. There is already a thread for A9 model, but not for A10 version, which maintains some significant differences (the first difference is the way to upgrade), so I think it deserves this separate thread. The upgrade procedure is based on the using a program called livesuite Chinese, the same that is used to update other Chinese devices. How to update becomes the same in all, and only differ in the rom file. Perhaps also in th

New Custom Firmware for YDPG18 (A10 Updated version)

Props to md0 !   Hello again, Given that in the past few days I've looked into my market problem (as explained in an earlier post) and doing so required a lot of reflashing, I've decided to make a custom firmware that saves me the trouble of performing certain tweaks after every reset. I share this mod in the hope that it may be useful to some of you. It only works on the upgraded (A10) YDPG18s! Here's what's different from the current official firmware SKE602: - all stock emulators and libraries removed - google mobile fix (the browser would not connect to google mobile more than once - may not be a general problem) - lcd density changed to 200 dpi (the icons and buttons were too small IMHO) - mobile networks configuration support (for connecting 3g dongles - not tested) - gesture locking - various performance tweaks

Linux booted on Gamebox GBX 1001!

Remember this promising but never quite hacked device , the Gamebox?: Well, nice to see some clever Spanish devs having their wicked way with it, and making progress on booting linux on it after all this time : Hi all again: Thanks for the feedback, the truth, I'm like a cloud. And calm that I was not gone to his head. Many of the forum and know me in person, and you can label me a "crazy" or "ugly" but not "cool" or "presumed". I am very humble to these things, therefore I feel overwhelmed with what I was coming. But what we, the first video from the GB booting Linux: As you see in the beginning, do a "sweep" by the disaster desktop I have. In the large laptop, I make compilations of U-BOOT-NAND on CYGWIN, responsible for the initial start (come on, the BIOS so we understand). Then see the Tablet-PC, where I KERNEL compilations, in a Linux "Real&quo
