The beta firmware version FW3.0.9_beta for the X7(Android 5.1) is now available!

Kindly note that this is a beta version and might not be stable enough compared to the stable versions. So please think carefully before upgrading with this firmware.

If you have already upgraded the X7's firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, you can download the OTA firmware package, transfer it to the X7 or micro SD card, and upgrade manually through the Technical support app on the X7.
>>
FW3.0.9beta OTA firmware upgrade package
>>How to upgrade   (
see method 2: Manual update via update zip file)

If you have not yet upgraded the firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, please download the X7 firmware upgrade tool package and use the upgrade tool to upgrade the firmware.
>>
X7 Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW3.0.9beta
>>Instructions of How to Use the Firmware Upgrade Tool

You can post in this thread if you have any issues with this version. But if you encounter serious problems, you may consider flashing back to a stable release.
Stable firmware FW2.0 can be found here:
click to download.

The following changes and improvements have been made to FW3.0.9beta compared to FW3.0.8beta:

1. Fixed issue where noise could be heard through USB DAC when using live wallpaper;
2. Fixed issue where the Resume mode would not take effect in some cases;
3. Fixed issue where FiiO Music might exit abnormally when scanning for some CUE tracks;
4. Fixed issue where the first two seconds of an ISO track would be played repeatedly when skipping tracks;
5. Fixed issue where FiiO Music would exit abnormally in some cases if the Skip through folders was set to ON;
6. Fixed issue where the VU meter would not work if the playback was paused for some time;
7. Fixed issue where the playback could not be paused in lockscreen when playing ISO tracks;
8. Fixed issue where the display of the ISO/M3U list would not change when pressing the Prev/Next buttons on the unit;
9. Fixed issue where after entering the Now Playing menu from a list then getting back, the display would always locate to the first track of the list (now it will remember the position of the last track that's clicked);
10. Added new function of remembering the Album/All songs view mode under an Album;
11. Improved the stuttering issue when playing ISO tracks;
12. Improved the speed of scanning for songs;
13. Miscellaneous bug fixes;

Note:
1. If FiiO Music would still exit abnormally after the update, please try the following steps:
a) Do a factory reset (Settings->Factory data reset)
b) Open FiiO Music, click Settings->Reset database
c) Open ES File Manager, click "internal_sd",then delete the "FiiOMusic" folder and "imagelolder" folder
d) Return to FiiO Music and scan for songs

2. If scanning for too many songs (around 30,000 songs)at one time, it's possible that the scanning might freeze. In that case, it's suggested to use the Scan for selected folders function to do multiple scans and scan for a limited number of songs each time. (We will try to fix thisissue in the future)

It still won't scan all files on my Sandisk 200gb card.  I ordered another card just to be sure it wasn't the card.  Both cards have the same issue with the X7.  It definitely hasn't something to do with the X7 not mounting the card correctly.  When I go into Recovery mode the X7 can't mount the external sd card.  It doesn't have this issue with my 128gb cards.

Still can't save Tidal offline tracks to external sd card.

UI seems a lot smoother.

Folder view finally list the number of tracks for the internal and external cards.

Hi, could you send us a purchase link of the 200GB card that you use, so we can have a check? And what't the file system format of the card?
We have also tested the X7 with our Sandisk 200GB cards, but did not find such an issue. So we need more information to analyze the problem.
Thanks in advance.

The sound quality is better than 3.0.8.
DLNA playback is still broken.
YouTube app video not working (still image no movement) but audio is working.
I will continue testing this version and report my findings.

3.0.9 sound is much better than 3.0.8 as sharp and more bass and on balanced better separation. Files which had distortion do not any more, still sometimes a pop at the beginings of tracks.

I own a 1 TB. Kingston HyperX Pendrive connected to the Fiio X7 that runs perfectly on FW 2.0 and scans more than 8.500 songs in less than 15 minutes.

Scanning:
On FW 3.0.9 takes about 20 minutes to reach about three quarters(sometimes is 6.600, others is 3.600 because i scan it very times after completely removing the database) and then is very hardly and slowly to FiiO continue scanning. Its scans about 20 o 30 new files every 5 minutes. Then between the last quarter, (its depends sometiemes is 6.600-6.700 others 3.700-3.800 sometimes), never show the circle below the last quarter, shows scanning finished with only 6.600-6.700 some scanning or 3.700-3.800 songs other scannings, instead of the more than 8.500 songs that i own on my pendrive. Total scanning time is about 30-40 minutes.

When its scanning sometimes shows the volume screen as if he had pressed any volume button, but never pressed it.

Playing

Browsing through folders and files I can't play some songs of some folders. When i press the song to play it, it does nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I think this is due to long folders names and long file names. Seems to be that the long of file path that FW 3.0 admit is shorter than FW 2.0. I also think that the shorter long of the file path in FW 3.0 is the problem when scanning.

Others:
Swiftkey or any other additional keyboard not run in pure music. Only runs the default Android keyboard.

Solved:
- Especial languages characters that shows chinese characters is solved. Now all characters in all languages shows correctly. I have song names in russian and special spanish characters like "Ñ ñ".

- My only DSD album that i can't play on Fiio X7 from about more than 500 DSD albums in my library now plays correctly. I would like to know what the problem was.

Thank you for the continued updates. Since I started trying out the 3.0 betas the only problem for me has been that resume function does not work properly for m3u8 playlists. It now does properly resume the last song played (in both 3.0.8 and 3.0.9) but does not resume the entire playlist. Resuming to m3u8 playlists seems to work fine in 2.0. Otherwise the 3.0 beta has improved a lot since the beginning.

Sound of formatting FAT32 is much more attractive

I recommend you to do that

I couldn't believe that format type can affect the sound quality

My sd card is sandisk 64G and I formatted it a month ago as FAT32

Its sound is totally different

3.09

1. Sound quality came back and much much better with warm, more dynamic and impact.
2. RAM increased to 1.96G and 1.4G is available.  Not sure why but hope this will help run stream music APP such as JOOX w/o memory full issue.
3. Song scan ok.
4. Can not play WAV at all, either stop or quit.

Overall is good.

I discover the problem related to not scanning all songs that harpo1 and me reported several times ago.

The problem is the long path to the files that is very limited and shortened in FW 3.0.x. or FW 3.0.x has a problem with long paths that needs to be corrected.

All my files and folders name are long, but the full path to a file (a song) is very more short than the standard long path that any device admits and support. All my long paths runs on Windows, Linux, Android and on every device except Fiio X7 with FW 3.0.x. On FW 2.0 all long paths runs perfectly. Because of this, the problem is not about how long our paths are, the problem is that FW 3.0 has problems to manage this does need to be solved.

Please Fiio solve this bug and you solve the scanning problems and the files that i can't play on Fiio X7 with firmware FW 3.0.x.
