hello, after they released the installation with third-partyapplications for some reason after installing a wifi manager app I discovered thatthe m7 has the wifi disabled , I knew I didn't have Wi-Fi, not that I was disabled my question is there any physical limitation sothat the m7 does not have wifi? because it seems to detect the signals verywell...
if they could enable it totally in the future it would be a very beautifulupdate that would make it a great jewel

WiFi of my x7 is nearly useless. It starts streaming, plays some files, than freezes, and should be restart. Thus, using NAS or Spotify is a nightmare with x7. I use several WiFi devices (laptop, phone etc.) in the same environment without the slightest problem. Only FiiO is unable to make useful WiFi device. And, no useful reply from Support. They always put the same boring questions (questioning the quality of the users' router), suggesting factory settings of x7, but they does not even try to solve the issue.

You access the Internet through bluetooth tethering. Establish bluetooth connection from the M7 to your mobile device. Works fine. I installed TuneIn Radio and works great.

Done a little research and indeed WiFi manager sees the WiFi. When you first launch the app it will detect that WiFi is disabled and asks if you want to enable it. After you enable it you get WiFi access. Have been able to stream TuneIn Radio via WiFi this way.

you may need to disable the whitelist in the newest firmware to install the app (M7-FW1.0.7 released 2019-12-23).
i also did a full reset and yep sure enough wifi is still being found. its 2.5GHz only but thats no issue.

now super easy power amp activation is possible.

I could already use Wi-Fi on my M7 but apparently there is a problem with Wi-Fi bandwidth on the M7 because it does not allow me to listen to high-quality streaming on spotify...
any solution..?

I used wifi-manager-4-2-7-220 apk. There seems to be some stability issues, but then again this also happens with bluetooth Wifi tethering. Overall it works. Perhaps there is no built-in antenna and you need to be closer to the WiFi transmitter source. I have installed PowerAmp which does way better job with its equalizer. TuneIn Radio Pro, ES file explorer also works fine. I managed to play video with AC3 player. I prefer VLC but it cannot be installed on the M7. Even though AC3 is derived from VLC it installed flawlessly.

We are on the right track, I also discovered that you have to be near the router to be able to successfully connect the interesting thing is that if you move away it is disconnected it is correct but it does not stop detecting the signal with force in fact although you are near the router there is very little width of  band I wish the limitation was by software

Just wanted to add to this a bit. I'm able to get internet via bluetooth tethering via my Oneplus 8t on the M7. Installed F-Droid as someone else stated and I'm also able to connect to Wi-Fi but unable to get data from it.

Got into the recovery to attempt to install Open Gapps via sideload but it seems they haven't fully implemented sideloading in the recovery so it failed to connect. If we are able to get Open Gapps to work, the authenticating Poweramp, Spotify, Tidal and so on would be much easier.
