Dear friend,

Sent. You could report to us if you have any suggestion in the new beta firmware.

Hi,

I've been testing the new 1.07 beta on the X5-III and I love the enhancements. Also did you change the music processing and/or the low-pass filter code? It sounds great.

However, there is a bug that's making it very difficult to use. It looks to me that if you can fix this one bug it should be pretty usable. As far as I can tell, this bug is related to loading the album artwork. I would guess it's loading the artwork images with a background thread and something isn't thread-safe so the threads are overwriting each other which is causing the crashes. Since images are loaded for every track, this is causing LOTS of crashes every time you try to load a new artist or album.

I will be happy to send my log files if the developers want them.

Hi, I overall like beta, no critical crashes so far, but is it so that there is no viper effects in music app anymore, or am I missing something?

Hi, after updating beta 20181221 with kernel 3.0.101+ dated 12/21/2018 I'm missing the standard android back, home and option buttons at the bottom of the screen!
Very hard to operate at all and switching to pure mode is also not working. I upgraded from the last stable version.
Any idea of the reason or a way to get the control android buttons back without factory reset to the previous stable version ?
thanks, Chris

Beta version tested on X7 crashing quite often. "Pure Music" mode is not working. No Viper effects available anymore. No equalizer - or I just can't find it. Sorting is still somewhat lacking (it seems to sort by first letter only). Otherwise very nice customizable UI. I hope final version will resolve all the issues.

Wojciech, I'm getting exactly the same problems (and nice surprises) with the beta on my X7ii. I'm guessing that Viper was only available before to provide ReplayGain, so won't be continued in the new release which has that function built in. I'll have mixed feelings about that because I bought a few extra viper effects - but I'm now getting the best sound I've ever had from the X7ii, so I won't be complaining - but others might.

Hi Johnlds. Same here for Viper effects. I had purchased some but honestly as you say sound is good. There is no need for VE. I would like to see some sort of equalizer though. If they can fix "Pure Music" mode, sorting and all the crashes then I'm actually good with this version.

Thanks @in_saner!
Now that I re-installed the old FiiO-Music apk as described in this thread I realize that the overall performance is MUCH better with the new firmware.
So I currently have the snappiest feeling with all the stable features of the old app including viper effects and working pure music mode - great!
But... How can I switch to the new app contained in the beta-zip again?
I'd really like to switch back and forth between the two without having to factory reset...

Thanks guys :-)

In fact, you can’t) As you’re replaced one app with another, physicaly overwrited bits on memory. By the way, I did the same and don’t regret). So I believe there is the only way is to reinstall beta again.

Reinstalling after a factory reset I think...
No, that's to much effort for me just for a currently unstable new Music app (with one killer feature though: I LOVE to link with my mobile!).
So I'll wait for the official stable version and keep using new firmware till then.
Regards and a nice weekend, Chris

Hello,

I have reinstalled the latest beta (20181221) and now it seems that everything works correctly! What I have done has been to restore factory data to leave the player clean, then I have installed the beta, and when booting works perfectly, with the app of Fiio music 1.0.7 working perfect, without closures. The only thing that does not work well is the change between pure music and android. The dlna servers work perfectly and I can access and play music from them.

It seems that everything starts working well. Step by Step. Thank you.

Regards,
Reply

Good job luislg!!!

I can confirm this. If you have already installed the 1.0.7 beta then it seems that all you need to do is a factory reset which will restore you to the beta firmware and the 1.0.7 music app. After doing this I'm still seeing some crashes but only a small percentage of what I was seeing before.

If you haven't installed the latest beta yet I would suggest installing it and finding out how bad the crashes are before doing a factory reset. If you get lots of them like it seems most people do, then do the factory reset and it should be better.

If you decide you want to go back, install the 3.4.3 apk file (I posted a link on the previous page).

I've just installed the new beta firmware (X5-ota-20181221.zip). I've installed two 400GB sandisk cards with about 15200 songs.
These are the issues found, I think I will rollback to the last stable version:
1. No pure music mode.
2. Poor performance while browsing the catalog
3. Frequent Fiio music App crashes while playing
4. Frequent crashes while browsing artists
5. Fiio music did also crash while scanning for music for the first time.
6. There is no management for resuming on the sd 2. If you pause reproduction, after few seconds there is no way to resume from that song.

I hope you're going to fix these issues even managing many songs.

Непонятные устройства.
