There is no support website for it either.

You probably figured it out yourself. But I'll post the link anyway: http://www.colorfly.eu/download.htmlInstructions (direct copy of the website) (Click to show)
Firmware Upgrade Instruction
Short version (Click to show)
To make a backup of the files in the internal storage. In the process of upgrade exist the risk of being damaged, please make a backup of the important files
The upgrade process needs adequate power to support. If the power supply failed in the process of upgrade, there will lead to a failure, and unexpected result. Maybe you should send it to manufacturer for repairing. Player firmware upgrade will take about 2-3 minutes. The methods of ensuring adequate power show as follows:
(1) the player is full of power.
(2 )using the USB cable to charge the player in the process of upgrade. * when you upgrade in the state of power shortage, make sure the performance of the USB cable is reliable
Pull out the micro SD/TF card. prepare the upgrade firmware what the update needs. The name of the firmware is CFFWPKG.ISO, Colorful Firmware Package Image. The RAR or ZIP file format should be decompressed first.
Start upgrade operation Connect the player to PC and copy the colorfly Firmware Package Image (CFFWPKG.ISO) to the floppy disk root directory of the internal storage. Pull out the USB cable and power off the player. Restart the player. The player will detect the new firmware. If the version of the new firmware conforms to the upgrade request, an interface which shows the relevant information of the new firmware will appear. At the moment, you can select Yes to upgrade.
When the interface shows 100%, it means the upgrade is complete. And the player will restart when the interface displays Restart System. If the player could not restart automatically when the Restart System had appeared for a minute, you can press the Reset button to restart the device by yourself. Generally, upgrade will not damage the original contents. If the file is damaged, you can restore them from the backup file. * You can format the disk and restore the files from the backup files to avoid the damaged files.
So all I did was:
- Downloading the latest firmware from the site. (which is actually 188.8.131.52)
- Pulled out the SD card
- Connected it to my PC. (Windows 7)
- Copied the CFFWPKG.ISO file onto the colorfly. (Into the root directory, not a sub-folder)
- Disconnected it from my PC
- Restarted it (it then should detect the update by itself)
- After choosing yes it started to update
- After finishing the update it hung on "Restart System" so I had to restart it manually using the reset button.
Hope that helps.
As for the device:
I just received it today and really enjoy listening to it with my Beyerdynamic T5p. Well to be honest all I had before was my HTC Desire which just can't compare to the Colorfly or any source gear designed to just play music.
I really like the look of it and it feels really good and the sound is great. The UI response is kinda slow but that isn't that much of a downside at least for me. Also the volume slider really needs a little bit of force for it to move so moving around with it in my jacket works just fine. What didn't quite work in consolidation with my T5p was the 1/8 inch connector but that's probably an error with the T5p cause it works just fine with my DTX300. 1/4 inch connector works fine.
Please excuse grammar and spelling errors as english is not my native language.
