    Mbmax, thanks your report!

    I test on dslite and dsi, even on a320, found the same problem.
    But if i change the dmenu's skin, and wait about 50 seconds, then shutdown and the file dmenu.ini located in /LOCAL/dmenu is normal.
    In the same way, fba.lst is also normal.
    So, I got the following conclusions: because resources which are related to linux system are running on the TF card, so the file access will be slower.

    Interesting. Thanks for the heads up.

    I should get a A320 today for my test, i will give a try to the dingux Z4 distro and see this bug.
    I asked booboo the maker of dingux to join this project but he never answered to my e-mail.
    Maybe he is busy on something else.
    Could be cool if he can give some advice about the bug we report in there.

    Ok. Got my Dingoo A320 today and it's a ILI9338 LCD.
    Glad that booboo has updated the dual boot installer a couple of days ago. [​IMG]

    Edit : Dual boot installed and i used the rootfs + zimage (ILI9338) from the last dingux distro + Z4.
    I can confirm i get also FAT corruption on the dingoo.

    This is really a bad bug. I wonder why booboo has not yet fixed it. It's quite critical. [​IMG]

    Tysong, after further test on my dingoo it seems that the fat corruption doesn't happen if i shutdown my dingoo from the dmenu system > shutdown.
    Dingux unmount properly the fs and ask me to shutdown.

    I will give a try on the ismm today if i get a chance.

    Ps : booboo answered my email, he seemed very interested by this plugin.

    MAME4All does not run. I try to run ROMs that work with the SCDS2 version and when I press A after the configuration screen to load the ROM all I get is an orange/brown screen. I didn't change any of the settings so it's not that.

    I advice you to always check your microSD on your PC with the dos command chkdsk x: /f where x: is the letter of your microSD.
    I have hard time to beta test properly the ismartlinux plugin because of FAT corruption.
    I really hope tysong will fix that issue. It's very annoying. [​IMG]

    First post updated. The beta 1.2 is really good compared to my dingo A320.
    It's so close to the original speed, impressive !
