That sounds like it's pretty frustrating. I'm guessing most S:flo2 / T51 users are on a windows or have regular access to one which unfortunately does not include me.

That is the problem of using RockChip as main processor. The software side of the chip is just limiting how much you can do about it. I heard that there is a trend in the Chinese DAP maker now on switching to ARM based solution as they want to adapt more readily available OS like Android. Hopefully by the time we see T52 / s:flo3, we won't have to play around the firmware updater anymore.

Why don't you go to a PC Room with the firmware on the player and install there???

I hate how this thing buzzes constantly when the screen is turned on. As soon as the back light goes off its fine

Buy something from a company with better quality control.

Nothing to do with QC.

 

The issue has been discussed before: The touch screen need a step-up voltage circuit to function. It is the voltage circuit that generates hiss, hence the hiss goes away once the screen is off.

Not sure if this has already come up, but have you tried Bootcamp?  The idea of partitioning about ~10GB just for the sake of firmware updates is of course stupid but it is a solution.  I really wish this thing had Flash implemented like the Cowons' so the UCI could be revamped or tweaked at the least.

Guys, just wondering how long does it take for a full charge from totally flat using the wall charger?

post #2530 of 3625

That's actually a pretty damn good idea - how did I not think of that before? But they use Windows 7 probably almost exclusively and I don't want headaches; firstly, I don't want the headache of using Windows for too long (as I'd have to get used to what to do and where to go) and second, I don't want to pull my hair out. But that is a good idea.

Headaches?  My install was with Windows 7 64 bit.  No problems.  Just follow the correct procedures and use the right software components.  I pull my hair out helping my mother use her Mac.

Well, obviously, you use Windows and I don't. Personally, having to go to a PC room and pay to install my firmware is in some sense, liberating of an idea, but I'll be paying to install a firmware - and that sucks. The alternative of course, is to sell the T51 or trade someone for it as while I like it, I don't like it enough to really bother too much with it.

can't you just go to a public library? Why do you need to pay for what's free?

Sounds like sell is the option for you.

Pay some kids you know a few dollars to get it done. It will take the kid like 5 or 10 mins on a PC. In Spanish I think they said Money can make St Peter sings. We have something similar in Chinese: )
