From all the glowing reviews, I am investing in one of these in addition to the Sony DAPs I'm purchasing (mainly the F series and perhaps picking up a X series if I can snatch one off auctions at a low enough price for the white).....I have a couple questions that I'm hoping some of you veterans can answer (I tried to read up, but a lot of information and I just want to make sure I understand):
1) I'm a seasoned android user (especially with ICS and Honeycomb).....I see a lot of guys are running a basic 1 click root solution.....but is there more than 1 other than the one detailed in the FAQ? Also, these firmware upgrades touch are strictly firmware and doesn't touch the android rom? Just wanted to make sure firmware upgrades in the future play nicely if I root the thing.
2) The random clicks and pop, how severe is this really? From what I can gather, it happens much less with most extraneous stuff disabled like bluetooth, wifi etc.....but are these loud clicks and pops when the screen comes on and off/lock/unlock or just minor hiccups?
3) Is the FLAC tagging really broken? That will be the main thing I'll listen to other than 320kpbs MOG (assuming that works fine) so I wanted to make sure if the album covers and tags I've tagged all my FLACS with will show up.
4) Is the carrying case from the 1st post what you guys are all using or are there some other known good solutions?
I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get the device....really excited because the feedback here on the sound has been tremendous so I'm taking the plunge.
