Newer A320 with ILI9331 LCD controller working !!!

Looks like the first report was a false alarm. Later reports say it works. Not too bad for a code released after zero testing...

So that's it. Linux works for users of newer A320s. I won't cancel the purchase of one of the newer A320 units though (thanks again for donations!), since I still need it for testing the framebuffer driver optimization I'm working on. Next machine to acquire is a Gemei x760+.

Please, if you make a donation, tell me what system you own or are interested in being supported, so I can prioritize use of the donated money.

NOTE: if you own one of the newer A320 with the ILI9331 LCD controller, please contact me. I might need to get someone to perform quick tests of kernels to enable LCD model selection/detection, at least until I get myself one newer A320.

  3. booboo, do you purchase a black or a white dingoo? cause if you buy a black one, it may contain the olds lcd driver instead of new

  5. According to user comments, my best chances are purchasing a white A320 from DealExtreme. However, I'm first trying to contact CraigX and buy it from gbax, as long as they guarantee that the shipped unit has the new LCD controller, it will be worth the higher price.

  8. i have a black dingoo a320 and it appears to have the screen tearing problem, i find it rather annoying as i cant play any mega drive sonic games, i would like to know is there anything apart from downloading dingux, that i can do.
    or is it worth, just getting dingux as i have heard that it fixes the problem. it has all become rather confusing for me.

  9. I tried installing dingux the new model of lcd and 9331 did not work, nothing happens when I run the file Dingux_ILI9331.bat, the screen goes black as if nothing had happened.
