+ 1.

 

I never had such problems. He should probably return the unit and have it fixed/replaced.

I also agree.
My first R 10 worked fine but only had 32 Gb. I sent it back, on my expense.
Received my second one, 8.03, never had a single problem, of any kind, never tried to upgrade, root or other kind of tweak, except turning off shimeji.
I always turn it off after using it and when I restart I always wait until the scanning is finished before I start using it. I look for the scanning symbol in the notification area.
I recharge it turned off, it's more efficient.
I use 99% WAV files, from 44 to 192 and maybe 1% FLAC and m4a just for comparison from time to time.
I repeat myself, I never had a single problem, I don't know how freeze looks like on it, never used reset nore other 'fixing' procedure.
I saved the other firmware versions intending to test them but never did that. I consider it just a basic player with HiFi sound. With its specific lag I can imagine how fast it can drive me crazy if I try fooling around with it so I "play safe". I get that more than enough from computers with incompatible drivers or defective parts and all.
As for the money I payed for it, with all the shipping, VAT, re shipping and customs taxes, for my country is crazy! One can buy a second hand acceptable car for that.

I deleted all music except one album with 12 songs. I put the firmware in the root folder. It flashed successfully to 8.0.3. I booted the device and waited for an hour. Then, I pressed play and it froze. I had to reset it. I booted again and now I'm waiting for another hour.

Didn't know you could upgrade firmware from an SD card, always thought the R10 firmware had to be upgraded from a pc via USB cable.

post #1235 of 1416
You can put the firmware file in the internal memory. It will immediately be detected and you will be asked to upgrade. It look less than a minute to flash.
post #1236 of 1416
The waiting after reboot seems way too long, mine takes about one minute for the scanning. Memory almost full. I never did flashing.
Stil not good, but It seems you made another step forward. Maybe you will get to pass the problem part. Maybe with other firmware or smth.. Or re flashing the same one again and again and see if you get the same error or a different one. Try to find where and what is the flaw by the errors you get..
Here I fix computers, install windows and drivers, all the stuff to make them ready for work. A new one works like a dream. It takes me about one hour. The old ones or damaged ones can take me days because sometimes the flaw is not obvious at all. It might be a bad on the HDD or some condenser on the mainboard if the word is correct in English, I am Romanian, and that's when I need to think of the possible flaw, try to find it by excluding possibilities. It's a word for that but I don't know it.
For a basic example I try different drivers for the same chip, like sound and if one works, the chip is good the other drivers are bad. If none works I start thinking the chip is bad.
Or I mount the separate parts in a working PC to find the bad one.
I might not be very clear, my fault, but I trust you get the ideea.
My old android phone, a Galaxy S2, I did rooted, flashed, restored, re flashed, installed mods and all the stupid stuff and it NEVER took more than 15-30 min with all the operations.
On the R10 I just don't have the courage to try, it's way too expensive for me to take the risk.
Just try until you've had enough and if you decide to stop try to send it back if it's possible. For me it was almost impossible, imagine I was in Afghanistan in deployment, bought it through Holland from Japan, received it after 2 months, sent it from Afgh back to Japan to receive it in Romania because my deployment was going to finish before the arrival. Lots of money wasted, lots of customs problems and taxes, I was angry like crazy, stupid enough to do all this and full of shxxx I mean bad luck!
I think you find my old posts here somewhere in the beginning.
I wish you good luck and please keep us posted..

Look, I found this here somewhere and saved it as a note, unfortunately without the link, it s here somewhere for shure, the thing is you have to pu the firmware in a SPECIFIC location to work!!!

I'm pleased to report I was able to update the firmware. You just download it from the webpage listed on the thread I posted above, unzip it, connect your HDP R10 via USB (with USB storage mode ON), transfer update.img to the root folder of the HDP R10, safe-disconnect the player and turn off USB storage mode. After you do this it automatically prompts you to update. Make sure the player is connected to the power source or has 100% battery to minimize risk of bricking it.

The ROOT folder so it's internal memory, not SD, not PC! The PC part is just for transferring the file.

Exactly, that was the upgrade procedure that I read and was told to follow.

So once tested it should be the right procedure..

so did u solve ur problem

post #1241 of 1416
Did anyone tried the 9.03 version and can give us some obvious point to point differences?
I start thinking to try after all this but I need to know if it worths the risk.
Also, is it possible to downgrade after if needed?

I'm running 8.0.3. It could boot several times, but it slows down until it freezes when I press play after waiting 10, 20 or 60 minutes. After many attempts, it said the music folder is empty. Now, it locks up on startup. I can get into the service menu, but restoring the backup doesn't work. I can do a factory reset, but it won't chamge anything. Still a lockup during startup. I'm charging it and try again later.

This device has been a nightmare. It is by far the worst product I ever purchased.

I would go $51 but I think he should send it back for a refund or replacement.

I just received my R10 and it's working flawlessly well. touchscreen is perfect. I'd say its touchscreen is nearly as good as iPhone 5.

Also, it's internet browser works like a normal laptop's browser. The loading speed is slightly slow but it's totally usable.

theres no bug. Everything works!
