It's been quite a while, hasn't it? Hahah! This is something a little different than the usual stuff.
As the one-year owner of a FiiO X7, I've looked at ways to conserve battery while making my gadget run like a well oiled machine, so I'm here to give you a quick and easy tutorial on how to keep your FiiO X7 spotless, "germ"-free and running like a charm!

This is targeted mainly towards third party app users in Android Mode (Neutron, Hiby, etc) but you can also make your own customizations if need so.


Please take a look at the very bottom of this post to get the tools you need to make your FiiO shine.
Let's begin!


You need: Patience, Non-Rooted Device (Due to a specific root we need in this guide)

                  vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

1
. Update to latest FW Here.
Always remember to back up ALL music files to your PC if you're upgrading from KitKat 4.4 to Marshmallow 5.1.
Don't worry about FiiO X5 Gen 3

1a. Download all apks in the bottom link, and put them in your X7, inside a folder you can remember.
Give it a name, for example "X7 Files", then drag the folder inside your device.


2. Install KingRoot 4.5.0
You need this specific version, connect to the Internet and wait for your root. Reboot is normal
=================================================================

3. Install SuperSUMe & Close all other Apps



Immediately Grant root Permission to SuperSU Me when the prompt asks you.
Click the Blue Button then wait about 5 minutes, or until process is finished.

SuperSU Me will replace Kingroot.
The reason we are removing Kingroot is due to it being bloatware/spyware and most likely sending your personal data to shady companies, along with it sucking resources, bogging down your device, thus also consuming large amounts of power.

3a. It should have replaced & removed kingroot with a new SuperSU app in it's place, if not, close the app and keep trying!
Once it is gone, then you've done the hardest part!
If it STILL hasn't worked, then use the (Alt) version, that will DEFINITELY get rid of Kingroot.

Open SuperSU and If it says "A New Binary Update is Available", then just click on "Normal" do not click TWRP/CWM, due to the FiiO X7 not having that option of custom recovery, yet.
Reboot.

If no errors come up and a different styled dialog comes up for your rooted permission apps, then you did good.
That is the SuperSU version you have now.
=======================================================================


4. Install Busybox & Xposed w/ FireFlash!
Install BusyBox to 1.26.1, exit.
Now, go install FireFlash, press "+" and tap"Flash ZIP or OTA".
2017_03_02_15.27.05.png

Choose "3a. Xposed-by-dsa-20160715.zip".
If you're confused and everything is empty, look above your finger and tap the red tab on top where "Internal Storage" is.
Choose "Filesystem Root", then "sdcard/" scroll down and it will be there, or where you put itf.
=======================================================================


4a. Xposed - Greenify

Now, Install "5. XposedInstaller-3.1.1.apk" check that it shows this

Xposed Menu

Xposed Menu

Do NOT update to Version 87, or you will risk a bootloop.
If you get a bootloop, then you will need to my guide.
Restore Guide

Now install Greenify and choose the settings you like!
You can now activate Greenify in the Xposed module options! Yay!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


5. Install Solid Explorer & Remove ES File Explorer*
Install Solid File Explorer and the second file below it, install both, then open it.
Tap the three lines next to "My Files" and scroll down to "Applications", then tap "User Apps".
*(NOTE: If you want to follow Step 7c. at the bottom then don't uninstall ES just yet! Skip 5 and 6 for now)


5a. Highlight "ES File Explorer", click the Garbage bin. It will ask if you want to "Delete this one item?" then it will ask you if you want to Uninstall, of course you pick "Yes".
We are replacing "ES File Explorer" for the same reason we are replacing Kingroot, bloat, battery drain and shady activity.


6. Install Viper FX & Uninstall Apps You Used
We've come this far! Do it! Install Viper FX click the app and install the driver, reboot.
After this, you will uninstall.
  • SuperSU ME
  • FireFlash
You're all done!  


P.S; If this one doesn't work, the one bundled in with the FiiO App will, or the option below.
()()()()()()()()()()()()

7. EXTRAS (Optional)
A. You can install SuperSU as a /system app by going into settings of SuperSU
B. You can install adbd insecure in case you use fastboot/adb, and need to use root mode.
Gets rid of the "
Adbd cannot run in production builds" error.
Abdb Download

C
.


A.R.I.S.E Sound Systems™

CLICK THE LINK ABOVE & READ THE GUIDE. UNDERSTAND IT CLEARLY.
This is an all-in-one package where you choose what you want.

You download "arise_customize.prop" from the FiiO Options folder drag it inside your X7.
Download the newest zip from
>>>Here<<< and have both files in straight into your root (/sdcard/).


*(This is where ES Manager is last useful for. After this, you'll no longer need it. Replace w/ Solid Explorer when done)
Now, get "
ARISE_version.prop" and transfer it to your device as well. Paste "ARISE_version.prop" to the /system.
Long press the file and click on properties. Change the permissions to these.


Perm.PNG

Then save the settings leave it alone.
After, go into Settings > Apps > All > MusicFX
Disable it.

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Now, open FireFlash
Choose the .zip file in FireFlash now.
Special.png

Then tick these two and flash!
Now, you're going to choose the apps you want from the A.R.I.S.E flash menu. I recommend Viper4Arise,

AM3D ZIRENE® and ICESOUND.
Say yes to

- deep_buffer removal module
  - SELinux Permissive Mode module
  - SD Card permissions repair module

Be patient, because all of this does take time.



After rebooting, you go back to ES Manager, Get "libv4a_fx_ics.so" and copy it to "system/lib/soundfx".
Long press file, properties, Give it the same permissions the pic as above.

Now.
"Viper4Arise" > Settings > "FX Compatible Mode"
Choose Compatible, then go to Neutron > Settings > Audio Hardware > "Generic Driver"
Do not tap "Direct USB Driver".
Then you should get this small option named "DSP Effect (Device)"
Special Snowflake.png

Settings > Apps > ICESound Service. Disable it.
Restart one more time, then go back and tap it. Now you're all done!
Enable "AwesomePlayer" in debug options.
Happy customizing! (:

I saved about 2 hours worth of battery, so my battery life has gone from 5 1/2 to nearly 8 hours! It's crazy!
You may save even more depending on your amps and installed apps, along with what apps are asleep w/ Greenify.

I recommend Hibernating/Removing useless system apps like 'Phone', "Themes", etc.
I will keep this guide updated as I find more and more new things.

Only works with Kingroot 4.5.0?

It is necessary, because future Kingroot versions are harder to remove. You have to remember, we aren't keeping kingroot. It's only temporary, SuperSUME will replace it with a better root version that doesn't constantly leech of your battery.

What apps do you have asleep in Greenify?  and how is the Viper FX different from the stock installe ...

I have most useless system apps asleep, the only ones awake are V4A, SuperSU, Android Keyboard, Clock, External Storage. Launcher3, Neutron, Settings & Settings Storage It's VERY aggressive with battery saving.
Also, I have my wi-fi  & all other wireless communications off

For your V4A question, this one contains a brand new UI and bugfixes not present in the earlier versions, the change log in the app has more info. It is the definitive version in my opinion.

many thanks for the tutorial, v4a is my ultimate effect deck for my note4 and best thing it's free.
I used to do a simple kingsroot on x7 but viper effect does not seem to be effective (as shown on the status dialog).
I have paid for all the stock viper effect however it's not stable sometime the effect is turned on but  not doing anything and you have no way of knowing. Fortunately I have tweak with the phone version long enough to know it's presence. Also it cannot save your headphone preset so it's quite messed up if like me I changed between my hd800s and ie800 frequently
