The beta firmware version FW3.1.1_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.
Download link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/y0976p07yklomno/X7-ota-3.1.1_beta.zip?dl=0
>>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.
Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ecwnra ... 3.1.1_beta.zip?dl=0

(The upgrade tool needs to be run on a comupter with Windows system, and please kindly READ this upgrade instruction before the upgrade)

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.
Download link for stable firmware FW2.0:  X7 Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW2.0 (>>backup download link)

The following improvements and changes have been made to the FW3.1.1beta compared to the FW3.0.13beta:
1. Added Gapless playback function
2. Added manually switching folders when Play through folders was set to on
3. Added support to M4A format with HE-AAC coding
4. Added ViPER Effect without network limit
5. Fixed issue of impulsive sound resulting from switching songs when ViPEF Effect was set to on.
6. Fixed issue of wrong sequence of playlists on interface after clicking the play button
7. Fixed issue of noise when playing 352.8kHz/DXD format files
8. Fixed issues of abnormal exiting and playlist resulting from Resume playback
9. Fixed issue of scan failure resulting from large cover of some songs
10. Fixed issue of wrong order of albums after clicking the play button or using Resume playback.
11. Fixed issue where tracks would be repeated within one loop at shuffle play mode;
12. Fixed issue where some track names were displayed incorrectly
13. Fixed issue where the device couldn't go to sleep mode without playing after power-on;
14. Fixed issue of abnormal brightness adjustment for the pulsar light;
15. Fixed issue where the ES file explorer is not available to uninstall;
16. Improved issue where popping noise might be heard when changing tracks;
17. Miscellaneous bug fixes.


Note:
1. As for the ViPEF Effect, the network connection is just needed at your first purchase, but not after that.
The X7 should connect to netwrok again for making ViPEF Effect be available if after factory data reset or flashing the X7 via firmware upgrade tool.
It might take a little time to boot the ViPEF Effect because it is placed on the server in China at this time.


2. If it fails to scan the media library, please send the crash folder("internal_sd\FiiOMusic\crash") to us at support@fiio.net.

And it still doesn't scan all tracks with embedded cover art if you have large libraries.  Stops at the same point as it has for the last 5 or 6 beta versions.  Without cover art embedded in each track it scans all tracks just fine.

I sent my log file from the crash folder to support@fiio.net.

Deezer still does not work. FiiO please install the app and test for yourself. Should not be too difficult to fix I guess. It worked fine in 2.0

I was this problem in FW 3.0.11beta. Seems minor, but it was one of the things that sent me back to 2.0

Glad to know it is fixed.

I guess both Deezer and Amazon Music are unavailable in China and the engineers cannot access the systems which is probably why neither work.  Amazon Music worked perfectly in v2.0 but then that FW was not developed in house.
I know FiiO are aware of the problems and have noted that the X5lll will not be released on the global market until the FW can provide the access to services that global customers demand.  Hopefully we will also see the benefit of this development in the X7 FW.

Maybe they should employ someone outside of China who has access to these services.  In addition to the ones you mentioned USB Audio Player Pro is unusable since going to the beta firmware.  I know the developer emailed James what the problem is on fiio's end.  James told the developer his engineers would email him but haven't and this was a good 5 or 6 weeks ago.

#FiiO    Please include track remaining time as well as track elapsed time when a track is being played.  Several other users have requested this as well.  Every other music player seems to have this function.  James@FiiO posted an experimental screen shot some months ago which included this function, so I can't understand why it has never been included.

Repeat request as you ignored the request in previous firmware thread (3.0.12 beta)

Repeat request again as you ignored the request in previous firmware thread (3.0.13 beta) and did not even acknowledge it.  Come on FiiO, it can't be more than one line of code to implement it.

Resuming from external playlists (.m3u or .m3u8) still does not work for me. I'd be content with internal playlists but you cannot customize the song order, unless I am somehow missing how to do that. When playing an external playlist and then either exiting the fiio music app (in android mode) or rebooting/shutting down the X7 in Pure mode it will resume the previously played song/album but not the entire playlist. This function works in FW 2.0. Thank you for your continued work.

Edited by superbike999 at 2017-1-1 05:38

Gapless is virtually perfect and seems even better than it was originally from what I remember.  I'm not too sure about the sound quality.  The clarity is good but the music seems slightly thin sounding when used with Shure 846 balanced with AM3.  The Shures were punchy and dynamic with the 3.011 beta but that seems to have been lost with the latest beta.

It seems better with full sized AKG K812 Pro which you would expect, but with the in ears it reminds me of the FiiO X5 mark2, which I only kept for 3 months which tells you what I thought of that DAP

Thank you for for continued work on firmware improvements.

Hi superbike999,
I have a X5 II with RHA 20i and I wonder what are the issues you found with in-ears?
Have a nice evening.

Hi azazules.    I found the sound a bit thin and uninvolving.  I was using Sennheiser IE800 at the time, (as far as I can remember.)  I changed it for the the A&K Jnr which had good sound quality but their response to customer queries on Headfi was appalling.  I then changed to FiiO X7 which is very good apart from the fact that firmware isn't perfect yet, but at least FiiO are trying hard.

I have no doubt that the sound will alter with different earphones/headphones.  I am not familiar with the phones which you are using.  I sold the IE800's and am currently using AKG 4003 and Shure SE846 and a variety of full sized headphones

The new X5 mark 3 looks interesting but I am loooking forward to the X7 mark 2 Pro when that is released later in the year.

Hi. Happy new year.

Music app permanently crashed . Without any systematically reason. Come back to 3.0.13b.
Noise when playing 352.8kHz/DXD format files really fixed.

To do:
1. Fix Music app crashes
2. Lyrics in ALAC
3. Send info to car audio system via bluetooth

I have no details yet. The sound is like 3.0.13. I think it's good. The search is still not good. various characters still appear in Chinese. For the rest I use the X7 only pure music mode. How I feel about Viper is well known by now.
