Marat Star: You just might've been using my gray & orange mod with FW 2.X 😉. FW 3.X took a much different approach made it harder to mod back to a list-based UI. I'm just glad Mr Trev put in some time and developed a list-based mod for 3.X. The stock UI drives me bananas 🍌🍌🍌

Was it the one that displayed a grey cityscape when there was no album art? If no, then still thank you for modding - if yes, then please mod 3.0 too! :D

Oddly, while I have more DAPs than I need, I've been troubleshooting my old ipod video.  At this point the battery's probably 9 or so years old, so I should consider replacing that too.  I just hope the hard drive doesn't go soon, or else I may as well look at the 128gig CF cards and swap that in.  Already had to wipe reset to factory settings just to get audio back as it is, seems to work again at least.  I'm just glad the rest of my DAPs are behaving.

Nope. I used that one as a springboard for a series of simpler gray + color themes with simplified startup & shutdown animations.

I cracked my old iPod Video open awhile back, replaced the battery, and did the SD mod. Broke a couple clips in the process, so the front cover doesn't settle back in place perfectly anymore. I also lost the ability to Rockbox it for some reason. Guess it didn't like the SD mod. Didn't bother to troubleshoot after getting X3 and then X5. Maybe I'll try and get it back up and running one of these days...

My main curiosity is I keep seeing diyMods going for 300-500, and I'm curious what else they do besides things like the CF card, battery, and nifty clear faceplate...  whatever it is, I get the feeling swapping battery and going to CF is about the extent of my modding desire for this old thing.

I *think* they bypass the amp circuitry so you just get a permanent line out from the headphone jack. Cleans up the internal audio chain. Not something I have the skill to do. If I did, I'd much rather try swapping opamps in my X3 like ClieOS did.

Hey, maybe someone would like to mod my X3 for me. Any takers?

Good springboard.

 

There is a lack of firmware 3.0 mods out there, to take advantage of the improved playback capabilities and faster switching inbetween tracks - that one list-based mod is not enough - do YOU want to be...

 

A INTERNAT SUPER HERO?!

 

...selflessly providing the people with superior modded content, just to disappear into the night. Leaving behind the whisper: nmatheis...

 

Are you motivated? :D

Utterly outside my capabilities as well, but at least it makes a little sense how it'd be an expensive prospect.  Which reminds me, I really need to get a LOD for my ipod that has an aux jack instead of a cord for my car...  sorry for all the off subject ramblings btw.

Well, if it were FW 2.X, I'd be all over it. FW 3.X is a bit more complicated, so I leave it up to more talented people like Mr Trev 😉.

I tried to bring it back on topic, bro 😜.

And since there is no bass and treble straight in the main menu, adjustments and navigation in general takes a bit longer. 

 

Then again - having changed back to 2.14 I´m experiencing slow-down and more freezing. And I´ve heard there are sound differences too, although I´m not one to install/uninstall firmware to check out if that´s true. 

 

Plus there´s no eq.

 

So, what´s the optimal here?

 

Maybe I should just look into it and further mod the mr Trev versions of the DAC and no album art files, but then again, man, I don´t wanna get into that s***t :D 

Don't think I bothered spending much (if any) time on those artworks, but it is really easy to just unpack the fw and replace em with what ever you want.

BTW CH23 also posted a litegui link that will give you a psuedo-simulator for testing.

I sent a pair of AD8620's to a Head-Fi'er in the Philippines for his X3 and he seems to like the sound, I find the AD8620 a little too bright sounding.
