Sorry for being ignorant but  why do you  need to root it? What advantages would that bring? 

post #2943 of 3909

mainly to remove bloatware and unwanted running apps i guess... or maybe overclock/downclock/downvoltage the dap haha

post #2944 of 3909

A good suggestion there, but are people willing to do that (donate)?

guys is the ICS update for walkman Z any good when playing flac natively????

 

seriously, im stuck between F and Z for months here.... because of flac!

i wanted the Z for the bigger screen to watch vids....

 

but is the f screen size (and quality) any good in watching movies?

Well, I am pleased to report that doing a factory reset after upgrading to ICS -as suggested by somebody in the Sony F thread - seems to have cured the buggy walkman app experienced by many after the update. All my 44/16 flacs now play normally without lag and the player is very responsive. biggrin.gif

@zen

 

u r talking about walkman Z right?

 

so there is no lag when playing flacs?

post #2948 of 3909

Yes the Z. And all the issues I had seem to be fixed so far. The factory reset allows for a clean install of ICS instead of an upgrade.

I have the Japan version 64gb (1070) coming in soon. It was shipped yesterday. Hopefully it will be here next week, if all things go well.L3000.gif

btw, are there any diff with the Z when u upgrade to ICS ?

The butter smooth transitions, eye-candy and a whole new set of features (most importantly flac support).

Update and factory reset, that's right wink.gif

Little differences but ICS  appears to be a more efficient and smoother OS, better apps management, much better browser and native flac support of course. Oh, and Sony Clear phase for the provided headphone but I found it to work very well with my PFE232 so worth a try.

Okay guys. Found a solution (somewhat)  to the flac delay bug.

Go to the apps section, then media players, and then hit the 'clear data' button. Works for me and is wayyy better than doing a factory reset.

P.S. Do update your music database once you do this.

post #2954 of 3909

I still have the feeling the update broke few things and doing a clean install makes sense. The overall feel and usability is better and battery seems to have improved, but need more time to confirm. Plus, it only takes few minutes and reinstalling apps from the Play store is very straightforward.

post #2955 of 3909

Sure, go ahead.

And do post your feedback wink.gif
