New FiiO Music App is very beautiful. And finally the ReplayGain function is available! The app crashes some times, but is normal because is a beta firmware. I'm waiting patiently for the 1.2.2 firmware for new functions... Thanks FiiO!

New beta is 50% working fine. As for sound, the device works very well with any type of file, of high quality. The gapless works perfect. The new application of fiio music is beautiful and functional, but, at least in my case, it closes very often. When trying to change the data source (SD or DLNA) the application is closed. I have also noticed that the change between android mode and pure music mode does not work well, the player stays dead ...

Also updated ffio music to 1.0.7 and still giving the same problems of unexpected closures.

Waiting final release !! Thanks.

The principal new feature of new future firmware (1.2.1 actual but probably 1.2.2 final) is the new FiiO Music App, version 1.0.6 (similar at new FiiO Android Music App). Completely redesigned. I send some images of the new App.
If some would try the beta firmware they can send the PM message to FiiO. For privacy I don't post the link of the firmware sent me. I thank FiiO Engineers for the hard work!

Dear friend,

Thanks for the kind feedback.
Yes, we are sorry that improvement is still needed in the beta firmware. Some issue we have got to know.
We will report to the engineer about that.

Hi all,

I just got a new X5 III for Christmas and sycned 2 x 400GB SD cards with MediaMonkey so I would get all the ReplayGain information on the cards. I'm very much looking forwards to the latest firmware version and the latest player version so that I can take advantage of that information. How is it coming and when do you think we'll be able to have it?

Thanks

I should add that I updated the firmware to version 1.2.1 from the website already. But I don't see any options for ReplayGain there, so I assume this is still coming in a newer version. Thanks.

I can't find a way to go back to the 1.2.1 production build after installing the beta. It gives a message that it "cannot install over a newer build". Can you provide instructions on how to do this?

Thanks,

D

Here is what I've found. Let me know if there is an easier way to do this:

1. The beta installs a new version of the kernel (3.0.101+) dated 12/21/2018 so any attempt to install the production version of 1.2.1 will fail with an error "cannot install over newer version".
2. I'm not sure if the restore point is part of the new kernel but when you do a Factory data reset it goes back to the version of the 1.0.7 music app that came with the beta so that's no help either.
3. However, if you grab just the production version of the music app and do an install of that it will return you to the production environment. You can get the production version at:
Music App 3.4.3
The new 1.0.7 version of the music app looks fantastic. The new UI is great and it has a bunch of new features but there is a bug introduced with 1.0.7 that seems to be related to the background thread that loads the album art images so just about anything you do will crash the app until all the new art has been loaded. I'm not sure if it's worse on my system since I have mostly hi-res music and hi-res artwork but I was having to restart the app 10+ times whenever I tried to play a new album. I'll try this again when they get that bug fixed since it's probably fairly stable without that problem.

Yes but as bad as that looks, it appears there is just one problem causing 98% of the crashes (the component that loads the album artwork). However, every time you scroll or make a selection there are dozens of images loading and for some reason it's crashing on a lot of these loads. but appears to cache them so eventually it finishes and stops crashing. They definitely need to fix this ASAP.

If it's driving you nuts you can go back to version 3.4.3 using the above directions.
