Hello FiiO Support,

Reading about the latest Android version 8 and other news like the KRACK WPA2 vulnerability I was asking myself where FiiO is standing at upgrading at least network capable players such as the X5 III to a newer Android version. Even though Android 5.1.1 is still supported through security updates it got fairly old and even though one maybe doesn't store sensitive information on a FiiO player (a Google account though is), as soon as the device is connected to the network it could be target of an attack in any way. This in my perspective gives the device's vendor a certain responsibility to serve at least current products security/software updates for protection like for any other vendor of network capable devices.

My questions are:
- Do you include the Android security rollups in your firmware updates? Like in newer Android version it unfortunately doesn't seem to be visible at which security rollup the device is within the Android settings.
- Are there any schedules to raise the Android version? What is the reason of staying at an older release?

Thank you in advance!

I think the issue is that Rockchip doesn't provide android newer than 5.1 for the RK3166(?) chips used in the android FIIO models.

Hi, MisterC925 is right. Rockchip could only provide Android 5.1... Sorry about this.
