Note: When you click the links below to download the firmware, it indicates that you have already read and agreed to the Open source licenses.


How to upgrade the M6:

The M6 supports online upgrade. If a new firmware is available and detected (with the M6 connected to Internet), you will find update notification in the notification center. Then you can click on it to enter the update menu for online upgrading.
Also, the M6 can be upgraded locally using firmware package:
a) Download the firmware file from FiiO website then copy the firmware package file to the micro SD card;
b) Open "Technical Support" app on the M6, click "Firmware Update", and select the firmware package file to upgrade.

The following changes and improvements have been made to the FW1.0.4 compared to the FW1.0.3 on M6:

1. Added grouping tracks by Album Artist category(You can select the Artist or Album Artist in the Settings->Artist List Display. This upgrade requires a database update, please scan for music again.);
2. Added In-vehicle mode (in Settings ->Audio -> In-vehicle mode; If enabled, the player will power on/off automatically when vehicle engine starts/stops and the FiiO Music app can also switch accordingly. It's suggested to use this function together with the Resume Play function of FiiO Music );

Note:If the FiiO Music app is accidentally uninstalled, you can restore it by re-updating the firmware or performing a factory restore!

7.Improved the FiiO Link function (now the connection will always remain active after enabled);
8. Fixed issue where the display location of the list could not be remembered after deleting a track from it;

I tried to install Spotify Lite but I am getting the error "This app isn't compatible with your phone".

As this device has very limited resources, I expect the lite version to greatly help with reducing the load on this system.

I updated to firmware 1.0.3 and bypassed the whitelist by clicking the kernel version button multiple times, as was required.

Has anyone else faced this issue? What could be the issue? @FiiO @JamesFiiO

Hello,

Are there any limitations for the APK files we can install?
I have whitelist bypassed on my 1.0.3 M6 , device restarted, but still I'm getting same error as poster above - "This app isn't compatible with your phone".
I've tried different version from apkpure, but this does not help.
Are there any recommended sources for apps I can install on M6?
Please advise.

Kind regards
