Q: How to upgrade the X1?

A: ★Choose a TF card (Micro SD Card) with FAT32 file system. If the update process fails, pls change to use a blank TF card with capacity under 32GB, and directly format it by X1 before the upgrade again.
    ★ The original file data in the TF card will not be corrupted when upgrading.
    ★Ensure that the X1 is sufficiently charged (preferably fully charged) before the upgrade to prevent power failure during upgrade.
Methods to Upgrading via micro SD card:
1. Choose a card with FAT32 file system.

2. Unzip the firmware upgrade package from FiiO and copy the x1.fw file within to the root directory of the TF card.    >>Download link for all DAP firmwares
Do not rename the firmware file, otherwise the X1 can not detect the firmware file.
★ The x1.fw file has to been put in the root directory of the micro SD card.

3. Turn off the X1 and insert the card into  the micro SD card slot.

4. Hold the “Shortcuts” key (the key to the upper left of the scroll wheel) and then press the “Power / Lock” button to turn on the X1.  The following firmware upgrade dialog will appear.


★Do not press buttons or turn the dial on the X1 while the upgrade is in progress.
5. When the firmware upgrade is complete, the X1 will restart automatically.
★Please delete the x1.fw file from the TF card after the update is complete.
★Please update the media library again after the firmware update.

Hi, just to check:
If i have just bought a new FiiO X1, I only need to do the upgrade using the latest firmware upgrade (x1.FW1.1) right? I assume that there is no need to find out the current firmware and subsequently update the firmware version by version?

Yes, there is no need to update the firmware version by version, and pls just upgrade the X1 to the latest version firmware FW1.1 directly.

Hello,
on my FiiO X1, i bought just before christmas, is FW1.2.
Here i only read about FW1.1 as latest Firmware. On the
other side today a Beta FW1.21 appeared. Is on my FiiO
FW1.21 recommended and what is different between 1.2
and 1.21? Thanks!

There is no need to downgrade the firmware if the firmware already is FW1.2, which is after FW1.1. We don't release FW1.2 on our official website, because we just modified the firmware to make it be more suitable and convenient for the produce of X1. Besides this, FW1.2 is almost the same as FW1.1.

As you know, the firmware FW1.21beta is just the beta version even we fixed some bugs from the FW1.1. You can upgrade your X1 or not according to your personal need.

Here my wishes for a next FW:
1. Please make every lettering on the screen bigger, it's unused space enough, esp. the times on the play mode screen. Can You read the elapsed time if You move?
2. On the play mode screen it would be fine to have also the total remaining time of all songs less aside to their number.
3. The themes should not coloring the covers also on the play mode screen. Looks awfully!
4. A choice of a contrast forcing theme like black background with white lettering or reverse would be better readable by sun light.
5. Volume adjust should be possible also by screen timeout!

Yes, I already passed this feature to the engineers, and we may add it to the future firmware.

You mentioned to use only a 32G micro sd card. In the information booklet, it indicates to use up to 128G micro sd card. My provider told me to purchase a 64G card. Which card is correct?

Thank yoy.

Hi, both the 64G and 128G micro SD card can be used to upgrade the X1. We just recommend the end users to use the 32G micro SD card.

FiiO-Shadow thank you for answer. When can i expect new firmware? My tracks have different loundness so it can destroy my earphones and ears as well. ReplayGain would be solution for all my problems ;) I would wish also information about file size and amount of kbps.

It's the Chinese new year at the moment so no work is being done on the FW.

I too would love to see ReplayGain support, I guess we'll have to wait a while for it.

after firmware update to 1.3, my X1 hangs when trying to update media library.
not very big problem for me personally, but may be a bug.

in general, i like 1.3, but i have a couple of suggestions:
1) more contrast font colors in «now playing» screen. currently they are not well readable due to low contrast between font color vs background color.
2) pls replace current font with the one with more glyphs / better unicode support. some non-english symbols currently can't be displayed (my old cowon D2 was capable to display them all).

ReplayGain is related to hardware design. We are trying find other ways to solve this issue.

Tried to upgrade my X1 from 1.5 to 1.6 and followed your instructions strictly. However during the upgrade proces it crashes reporting a corrupted x1.fw file. Changing to other FAT32 formatted file (in the X1) 2 GB microSD and new FW file does not solve the problem. It continues to crash.
Any suggestions ?
