Support added for new LCD type (ILI9338)

A couple of maintenance releases, which basically boild down to the addition of support for a new LCD type, ILI9338. The support was implemented and tested by ChinaChip, I just prepared the dual boot installer and added the new zImage to the old system package.

Check out the google code downloads page here.

  2. Presumably A320. Should mean that A320 is back to production, but I'm awaiting confirmation from ChinaChip.

  6. @booboo: it's a sample test sent by iSmartDS team from hong-kong, so i don't know from which shop it comes from. I could ask them more details if you wish.
    BTW, i successfully installed the dual boot yesterday and i'm currently trying the Z4 distro so i can compare how fast the IsmartLinux plugin is compared to the real A320.

  7. Dunno if it's tied to the new LCD but the brightness is very low when i run dingux.
    Also, when i use the shutdown option (dmenu from the Z4 distro), i can see the shutdown process and "You can now safely turn off the power" but the power button has no effect. I must use the reset emergency button to reboot and shutdown properly.

  9. The A320 is back in stock on dealextreme.
    I suppose it's the new ILI9338 LCD.
