Public Service Announcement: [Warning][JXD S7300]DO NOT flash Stock firmware 2.1 if you have a custom firmware

[Warning][7300]DO NOT flash Stock firmware 2.1 if you have a custom firmware.According to the JXD site users with sxelrom can't update to 2.1 from the company( no idea why you would want to anyways it has nothing new for us), and users updating from NCCE will be greeted to a black screen(sorry the translations are bad and vague I'm trying to get a better informed translation on the why).
Badly translated reasons:
something about partitions change and sd methods on their 2.1 cause issues.
Badly translated changelog:
update on the new MX chip compatible processing
, update the HDMI bug in processing
3 backwards HDMI update
4, update the virtual keys (individual game to open the virtual buttons will be black or exit, such as the trigger of death, monsters shooting )
V2.0-0410 update:
1, modify the system stability, crash, standby revive the problem basically solved

New Dingoo A-380 Custom Firmware CFW V2.08.03

Alien Grey strikes again! A new Dingoo A-380 CFW version is available for download. You can read about it here:“The new Dingoo A-380 CFW V2.08.03 is available for download.
With the release of the source code we could finally fix the wrong L-R and X-Y buttons. The kernel in the firmware is replaced to make that possible. The module files are replaced and the cfgfs partition is formatted from EXT2 to EXT3.
Note: The L and R button function is now reversed in DMenu. A link to a new tool to write the CFW image on a MicroSD card is added in theTools section in the OP.
Thanks to d_smagin for his help. You now made it in the Special Thanks section in the OP.  “Download firmware here:,0,0,0,42,690
Thanks Alien Grey!

Mini Slug for OpenDingux

Mini Slug - OpenDinguxApril 25, 2013, 06:24:44 PM by qbertaddictThis is a reimplementation of Metal Slug. Enough said go grab it now!QuoteWhat we have here is a project of the talented programmer Clément CORDE, Slug Mini, in its version for OpenDingux. Unlike Airball, the Mini Slug is not a remake, but rather a kind of reimplementation using sprites and sounds ripped from some of the games in the series, but the stages are totally new and difficult .

About a native version: the native SDK support to C++ is really poor, so, unless it chances (any clues?), I won't be able to port it for native, sadly :-(Discuss it here:

Main GCW Zero thread on Dingoonity locked

Dude, where’s my thread? Where’s my thread, dude?Over at Dingoonity, ominipotent admin omgmog has done what readers of and posters on this loud, boisterous, often obnoxious, sometimes informative and rarely boring thread covering the ever late GCW Zero have probably long expected. He’s quite understandably locked the thread.  And deservingly so!  So full of vitroil, venom and bile was it! An evil thread. If you viewed it, you would die!  One moment, it was a sweet innocent little child without acting talent, next its like all black, dark, scarred, scarring, spouting bad dialogue and then, and then … noooooooooo:For a while, my days were sunny again.  The clouds lifted, and the implacable darkness that overtook my soul whenever I heard the words “GCW Preorder” was no more.  Dank, destructive, dark and drab disappeared.  Rainbows streamed across my newly winsome skies. I sing. I play with ponies. Lollypops taste good. I dress like Bradley Cooper. My forum reading days, long imprisoned, …

Never mind the brand, try to see the dots – $250 retina screen quad core Android tablets you can buy NOW

While 8 bit scanlines are the old black around these parts, and we hiss at resolutions greater than 360 * 240, who among us has not stared enviously at the 2048 * 1536 res screens of rich Uncle Muppet’s Ipad 3? A screen so sharp, so bright, and packed with pixel densities with numbers so large, matched only by the numbers following their price tags? We might not game on them, but hotdarnnit, them large table things with retina screens look dang nice. Pity you have to sell Boxer to the glue factory to raise funds if you want one.That is, of course, until recent times, thanks to the magic of Chinese mass production.  Yes, Android 9.7 inch tablets with ultra pixel dense IPS screens – ok harkkit, let’s call them retina screens – are now readily available in the wild!
