    Dingoo A330 -- AGAIN?
    Rebranded Gemei A330?
    [​IMG]

    Our friends at Etronixmart have let us know about the new Dingoo Technologies A330. As if one Dingoo A330 was not enough, this one appears to be a rebranded Gemei A330. Perhaps with this release there will finally be an official SDK, Dingux, and 1st party support.



    Thanks to Vincent for the tip!​

    Bah ! Why do they named it like that ?
    The a330 previously released was a fake or what ?

    edit : i see. One is from Dingoo Technologies and the other from Dingoo Digital (alias Gemei Tech ?). -_-

    it appears that gemei tech is the parent company and dingoo digital and dingoo technologies are more of the "test the market" companies. its like how acekard released the r4 ultra, its all about the money. the more companies you have, the more products you have, the more people find out about it the more money you can make.

    the sad part is that they aren't focused on their products any longer. the new dingoo a380 uses an old verson of dingux, the gemei a330 has hardly any official support which means no homebrew for the community, etc.

    this new dingoo a330 (v2) is going to be more of the same. another system that isn't supported by an official team (except for minor updates) and with no official SDK for the homebrew community. but man, i hope i'm wrong. i hope the "dingoo" brand is enough for someone to release an SDK. the gemei a330 is actually a really nice system but without homebrew its gets old pretty quick.

    Booboo is perhaps already on this ? I can see a lot of post on his blog about the GA330.
    He seems also to have bought a gamebox. [​IMG]

    yea he is working on a port of dingux but he said that gemei tech is being really secretive with the information he needs. he has been forced to translate chinese documents and figure out the rest on his own.

    dingux on the gamebox? that would be cool.

    Why not?
    Was there a problem with a product you bought from there?

    I had remained with Gemei for years. Now my Gemei has a warped screen, odd battery charge, and lost headphones. I just hope that my remaining with Gemei would not be for naught.

    i do hope that project is real. i'll probably wait for a file to be released and then wait for all of the dingoo emus to be optimized to work on the ismart mm.

    Another one?

    The number of these things called "something AXXX" is confusing and puts me and probably others off buying one.

    here goes... lol:[*]dingoo digital a320 paw print logo (some were released with smaller batteries that held less of a charge, no one is sure why)[*]dingoo digital a320 "HK" build with paw print logo (said to have been released only for hongkong, had a hardware change that required a community homebrew patch for all native apps/emulators)[*]dingoo digital/technology a320 "HK" with no logo (not 100% sure if they both released an "HK" build)[*]dingoo technology a320 (dingoo digital split, old team is 1-2 guys now bitching that dingoo technologies is a fake company, blah)[*]dingoo technology a330 (new system to get away from the dingoo digital drama)[*]gemei tech a330 (wifi co-op, native o/s, not much community support yet, gemei tech appears to be the parent company for all dingoo products)[*]dingoo technology a380 (wifi co-op, dingux o/s -- tho an old build)[*]dingoo technology a330 v2 (a rebranded gemei tech a330)
    ^i'm sure i messed that list up a bit. in the middle when the "HK" version came out (which had some hardware changes and required a patch by the homebrew community to get all the files working correctly) i stopped paying attention. i'm pretty sure both dingoo digitial (which at this time was coming to an end) and dingoo technology both had an "HK" build at one point. i'm not 100% sure and if anyone is really curious they should probably research a bit at dingoonity.

    the one to get is the old dingoo digital paw print logo dingoo a320, which sadly is no longer made. it is the most supported and in my opinion the best of the lot. the "HK" a320 is the samething but you might have to patch some files to get them working, and the unbricker to use is the "HK" universal unbricker. the gemei a330 has a better case, design, and buttons, and it offers 2-player co-op wifi for all native emus (but GBA), yet it has no community support and no public SDK. if gemei ever gets their head out of their ass to better understand the homebrew movement then i would recommend the gemei a330 over the others, except the lcd built for HD movies causes a "blurry" effect on the edge of graphics built for a grid pixel set-up. however, it doesn't bother me that much and i quickly forget about it after i start playing.

    Its full name is" Dingoo Digital A330". Totally the same with Gemei A330 except the logo" Dingoo" Which is printed on the surface of console. It is the product of Dingoo Digital. They removed the word" Gemei" and replace it with" Dingoo".

    It seems like that Dingoo is famous than Gemei?

    last i checked dingoo digital was no more, just the shareholders who stayed behind and who own the rights to the dingoo paw print logo, the old website design, and the original native software. the funny thing was that the gemei used the dingoo digital paw print logo on their first firmware update and they used the dingoo digital software. so perhaps they own the rights and are re-releasing stuff under that name.

    dingoo technology has publicly stated that they do not work for gemei tech and that gemei is just the factory that products the units.
