TVSkelton’s JXD S602 in action videos

Skelton’s got a JXD S602 – and he’s videoed it; time for all of us to celebrate! I’ve been a little late in posting these, so they’ve built up. But on the plus side, it’s like watching all 8 episodes of the current season of Breaking Bad in one large hit.  Enjoy, bitches!Megadrive and PC Engine:Arcade:Running Key2touch (map controls to touch controls):SNES:N64:PS1/PSX:Stock emulators:

Announcing another Android TV USB Stick thing

Our very good friends at Willgoo are stocking this now, for a lowly $71.99. and would like me to let you all know about it. These have become somewhat common nowadays – I blame the Raspberry Pi.  Although of course, they are a different class of device altogether: much smaller, easier to set up, and with Android 4.0, sporting a decent interface to turn a dumb to smart TV with little effort. And as the picture shows, this one had a dual core CPU and 1 GB of RAM.  You could do much worse, and so, if you get one from this link, I get a little cut.

CZDoom for Dingoo A-380/A-320e

CZDoom for Dingoo A-380/A-320e
« on: September 23, 2012, 02:19:43 PM »
Hello,Here's a CZDoom port for the Dingoo A-380/A-320e. It's based on PRBoom ( and ported by Joyrider and CongoZombie to the Dingoo.It has been recompiled with a new sdlwrapper from d_smagin. The old one from Ayla would probably have worked too, but I thought that it would be a good idea to try the new version from d_smagin, who made it to make it compatible with C++.
Enjoy DOOM on your Dingoo A-380/A-320e without the screen issue.

New custom firmware for dingoo technology a380

Great news from alien grey for Dingoo A380 users:

Re: New Dingoo A-380 Firmware V2.04.00« Reply #251 on:Today at 06:23:36 PM » The new custom Dingoo A-380 Firmware Version 2.04.00 is available for download.

New in this custom firmware is a new menu item "SDL Emulators" and a new full speed SEGA Mega Drive emulator build by d_smagin.

How to use this emulator:

From my own experience use 8 bit fast and Frameskip 0 or Auto and Sound quality 16000Hz stereo for full speed. Some games won't run without graphical glitches with these settings. To fix that use 16 bit or 8 bit accurate with frameskip Auto but keep the sound quality at 16000Hz stereo. Other settings may also work very good but these are the ones that I'm using.

Settings can be saved to change them as the default ones but it's also possible to save settings for a single game if necessary.

How to root the JXD S602–by Skelton

Thanks again Skelton for this guide!Source:,167.msg927.html?PHPSESSID=0dbe2065d25d2c62662b276c5db21793#msg927[HOW TO] Root JXD s602
« on: Today at 03:07:38 AM »

This is a brief tutorial on how to make root to s602:first of all download and extract file to the folder you want: Connect your s602 to PC in USB debugging mode. Go to Settings/Developer Options/USB debugging
- Allow system to install apps from unknown sources. Go to Settings/Security/Unknown sources.System should install drivers automatically (at least it did on mine). If not, tell Windows update to search for drivers or try this generic ones.-, with console in USB debugging Mode, run the file root.bat. (We'll keep the program script opened until the end of the process)- System will power off, and script will ask us to press a key (We don't do it yet)-…

Skelton’s JXD S602 Mini-Review


Skelton shares his thoughts in the Dingoonity forums about the brand new JXD S602. It looks like a winner IMHO:

Ok, I just got mine. Here are my initial impressions, specially for those that are interested specially comparing to s601:- Design is a bit better, D-PAD and buttons are softer than s601 (specially L and R buttons), and screen is abit more responsive.- System comes with a series of emulators installed for all common systems (PSX, n64, GBa, MD, SNES, NES, MAME, etc..) all in one package called gamemulator. The good thing is that we can install the emulators we want without the need of uninstalling the stock ones, so we can have our own emulators and the "GameEmulator" app included in the device.- Performance in emulators is a bit better than s601, specially in PSX and n64 emulation.- System plays video nice, including …

MG Android gaming device for kids

With no dpad to be seen for miles, this fails every retrogamer’s requirements in droves, but it’s always good to see what’s available in the same price bracket as the JXD S602’s and YDPG 17’s of this world …Source:
This may change with MG, a new Android gaming device in the making which is meant exclusively for  kids. It’s a fairly simple device which runs on Android, comes pre-loaded with a number of games and doesn’t feature any connectivity options or even a camera. And that is precisely why, PlayMG believes its upcoming device is good enough for the kids.

MG packs a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 4GB of internal storage which can be expanded via microSD and a Wi-Fi radio. It also comes with a number of sensors which would be required by a number of modern day games, including an accelerometer amongst others. Read more about what USD$99 buys you on the …

Good news … and bad news on the Wikipad

We heard about this Android tablet gaming device thingamijig back in Jan 2012, and the good news is that it appears that its release date has now moved to real soon now status – October 31 2012, apparently: Wikipad has had quite a ride. In January, it was a small no-name Android 4.0 tablet with an unproven processor, a glasses-free 3D screen, an optional game controller attachment, and a sub-$250 price. Eight months later, the likes of Sony and Nvidia are backing a rather differentAndroid 4.1 gaming slate that will retail at brick and mortar GameStop stores for $499. Today, Wikipad is simultaneously announcing pre-orders for the tablet at that price, and revealing the final design: Now, it's a sleek black 10.1-inch slate that's just 8.6mm thin — one of the thinnest we've ever seen — and weighs less than 560 grams, or a pound and a quarter or so. Now, it comes…

JXD S602 now available from Willgoo – only $65.99!

* Battery bumped up from 2300 mah to 2500 mah
* Improved buttons feel
* Slightly slimmerClick here if you would like tobuy one from Willgoo and also help support this l’il ol site.
