The beta firmware version FW3.1.3_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.

>>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.

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.

The following improvements and changes have been made to the FW3.1.3_beta compared to the FW3.1.2_beta:

2. Added scanning for iso tracks and sorting them into media library;
3. Fixed issue where the "Google service has stopped" notification might occur in Pure Music mode after updating the Google Play store;
4. Fixed issue where there the share button in ES File Manager would not work;
5. Fixed issue where FiiO Music might exit abnormally when scanning for some tracks with embedded CUE sheet;
6. Fixed issue where resume playing a track might cause FiiO Music to exit abnormally;
7. Fixed issue where the sound might stutter when playing some WAV tracks;
8. Fixed issue where FiiO Music might exit normally when entering the EQ settings in some cases;
9. Fixed issue where the tags of alarge-size AIFF track might not be read successfully;
10. Fixed issue where the "search by first letter" tool bar might disappear from the All Songs list in some cases;
11. Improved the case-insensitive search function;
12. Miscellaneous bug fixes.

Note:

1. This firmware will update the database and cause the media library to be emptied.Please remember to re-scan the songs after the update.

2. Before scaning the media library,
please try to remove the folders FiiO Music and imageloader firstly.
If it fails to scan the media library, please send the crash folder("internal_sd\FiiOMusic\crash") to us at support@fiio.net.

Well scanning is completely broke when I try and scan my large library with embedded cover art.  At least on previous builds it would scan better than 6000 of my 9000 tracks.  Now it scans 997 and never finishes so I can't get a crash log for you because it doesn't generate one.  Back to my SD card with no embedded cover art.

The sound is changed again . this time more bass, more body. not bad, but perhaps not quite in balance with the overall sound.

I understand still not why the sound every time is different. Why not let the music hear as it was intended/recorded. ? then anyone can mess around with the EQ or Viper.

Same issue on song scan reduce from 22xx to 19xx.

PS: Viper is good option for the one who'd like to customize their own sound characteristic. Btw, I like this option.

FiiO Team,

2 issues would like your team make it better.

1. There are a lot of noise when play X7 out through USB connect with Chrod Mojo.  This is happen when play music on both FiiO Music and other App such as Tidal.  No issue when play through COAX.

2. Can COAX support sampling frequency upto DSD?  Or else make USB can play upto DSD frequency.

Thanks....

For me there are still three remaining issues:
- Amazon Music does not stream
- Coax output downsampling DSD
- While search is improved albums found still play tracks alphabetically and not in track order

Showing a song info, really sees bad.

First bad constrast between background color and text color. Not read clearly. Needs to more dark the album background in order to read clearly.

Second, text title descriptions in two lines like the image. Or "Size" title description in Chinese.

Hi, harpo1.

So the unit will always keep frozen at the scanning the media library?

And yes, just as Martin.H said, please try to remove the folders FiiOMusic and imageloader then test again.

FiiO Team,

2 issues would like your team make it better.

Hi, Jeedmbb.

At present, X7 may not be compatible with some DAC devices trough USB connection.  We may fix it by the future update.
Similarly, we will add the DoP function on future firmware.

We will focus on the major bugs at present, and hope you can understand it.

Hi, Jeedmbb.

Your songs also are embedded with the album covers?
Could you please provide the crash folder for us?

After instal 3.1.3, spotify back to normal again. Vocal more forward and more bass (i like this change) but sound less crispy, I like sound of 3.0.11. Why fiio not make EQ outside of the music player? So every app can use it. Thanks

To bad we are not allowed to go back in firmware versions. that option is blocked after 3.1
After trying a new beta, I would like to have the opportunity to go back to 3.0.4. This was for me the best sound. warm, dynamic and relext. the overall sound was very good. Version 3.0.11 was also good.
