why o why did Ibasso (or Hibino or FuZhou) use that version??. Google has made that an obsolete package since at least introduction to ICS!!!

 

the next major version from Google is 2.3.3 which is Gingerbread... 2.3.1. was Froyo which is what this is using.

 

I am in the process of getting these files working in the Android SDK. Managed to get the "update.img" broken down into it's main components. (boot.img, system.img. cache.img, recovery.img). Though I was under the impression the DX100 at least ran gingerbread. lol. Downloading the Froyo package is we speak.

2.2.X = Froyo

2.3.X = Gingerbread.

Nice overview here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history

 

Dont trust me? Try tapping a few times on the version number on your DX100. There's no Frozen Yoghurt in the image that pops up wink.gif

Anything that is running Android 2.3.X is Gingerbread, Android 2.2.X is Froyo biggrin.gif

Not entirely true

 

Google seperated the 2.3.x into TWO seperate API's levels.

 

2.3.1 is classified as API 9

2.3.3 is classified as API 10

 

I am almost positive that google never released the 2.3.1 to any phones/devices out in the wild as they went to 2.3.3 - 2.3.5. Hell looking at the SDK it is showing obsolete next to the 2.3.1 (API 9) which was probably a Google I/O demo or something. Guess we are going to find out ;)

spkrs01... thanks for that appreciated.... I could soon be pulling the trigger on this.

 

figgie... I aint got a clue what your on about (I'm not great around a PC, music & hi-fi yes, PC no) but I'm sure many Head-Fi'ers appreciate you stirling efforts & help.

 

 

this thread amazes me... I would use the word 'indefatigability' but I got banned last time I used it

Well I can confirm that my & my partners Android phones, both came with 2.3.3 and were lated updated to 2.3.5.

 

There was a 2.3.6 & 2.3.7, but they wern't main stream more a fix for specific hardware.

Can't comment on the API, I don't get that technicalk701smile.gif

Loving how super smooth and detailed this unit is lol. gs1000.gifLooks like my DX100 won't be going up for sale after-all...
 

 

Blasphemy, were you really considering selling?

 

I am interested on your take with the K3003 on the DX100. I actually passed on my pair......didn't really liked them too much, found it somewhat disjointed sounding between the bass and mids, but maybe it is just me......I will listen again and may reconsider them though since they were offered to me at a very attractive pricewink_face.gif

I don't think Figgie has a DX100 to brick, he's just downloaded the firmware onto his computer and is looking at it with the developer SDK. :)

I am still intrigued to find out how fellow owners have their file/folder structured. I asked this, as I have said before, my unit was set up by iBasso before they sent it out to me and I really have had no problems......boot up times are relatively fast like a galaxy S2 and all the music files are read and no problems...

 

My Firmware 1.1.7

All my music is organised into folders - Artist - Album - Tracks

Tracks are labelled 01 Trackname.***

I have not had problems playing my music in the correct order on the albums

EQ is OFF

I have the unit loaded with PCM Wave files, Does not display cover art or Artist

I have 6 64Gb microSD card with FLAC Files 16/44, 24/94 and 24/192 and Some show cover art most do not.

Correct

 

with that said.

 

I own a Nexus S which I have done development work for (thanks DEVELOPMENT PHONES!!) but before I test out code in the phone.. I try to always run it under the Emulator to see what happens JUST INCASE it does brick it. ;)

 

I am speechless...lol.

 

For everyone here. check the wiki that Sorensiim put... ZERO mention of 2.3.1. It goes from 2.3 to 2.3.3 ;)

post #6910 of 12772

Does anyone actually use the EQ settings on this ?

 

I find all of them "muffle/deaden" the sound quality, much better with it off

Well like I said.. The SDK does show 2.3.1 as being Obsolete. Only way to get it is to actually show obsolete packages.

LOL .........yes bmiamihk did, but he got banned from Head-Fi .....so don't use EQblink.gif.

 

Joking aside, for me, no and it is a shame that bmiamihk is banned, he is so much fun!!!!!

post #6914 of 12772

I've just sent an email to Ibasso asking them if they have plans to upgrade the OS version....even if it is only to 2.3.5!

post #6915 of 12772

I am experimenting with the 'Rock' setting on the EQ, not sure what I think of it yet.  Most of my music is metal in some form - NWOBHM, Power, Speed, Thrash and Hair (what can I say, I'm 40, I grew up with it biggrin.gif)  mostly so it seems like a natural fit.

 

In terms of file ordering, I have mostly mp3 and flac and both are giving me grief.  Is it worth trying different file types to see what happens??? - I have a converter that can create AAC, ALAC, WAV, OGG, etc.
