Being that nothing has come out of FiiO to support the X3 since version 2.1 in December of last year and they stopped responding to emails, I’m not expecting further support for the X3. I think they are focusing on the X5.

 

They already announced (*not here, but at their own forum) a new firmware release planned at the end of March / early April. The reason it takes so long is because they are redesigning a lot of the UI / improving the code so it will be fairly major upgrade.

 

On the other hand, 2.1 has been quite stable on my X3. It is far more stable than the older version.

Let's see what they come out with in the next version.  Nice thing about the X3, unlike an iPhone, if you don't like it, you can switch back.

Thank you for any help!

If you're on windows, find "folder options" (win7: open an explorer window, go to tools , folder options| win8: search in settings for folder options) go to the "view" tab, and DEselect "hide protected operating system files" then delete Music.lst, usrlocal_media.db and usrlocal_media.db-journal

At this moment firmware 2.1 is the latest version.

Are the "____" part of an error message you get?

Eject the SDCard. Do a library update. Put the card back in and do a new library update.

Did you try to hold the reset button for ten seconds or more?  Worked for me in the past when I thought I killed mine.

What's the ETA on the new firmware?
post #8877 of 17129

about the firmware for X3, we will seperate it into two main step:

 

step 1:

 

1, new data base which will used in X5. which is very fast and stable.

 

2, added some new feature, includes DSD playback, and some other new small features like more cover support, albume after artist

 

3, some bugs fix.

 

all this is based on the work of X5's firmware, we have to wait the success in X5.

 

 

step 2:

 

a total new GUI for X3, and this will be the end of the firmware upgrading. the next generation of X3 willl use new UI which based on X5.

post #8878 of 17129

some design photos of new UI , be noted that it will looks quite different in the real screen of X3, in fact, it looks more like orange but not red in X3.

 

main menu.

 

 

now playing

 

 

volume control

 

 

setup menu

 

 

folder explore

 

 

 

this is the initial design but not the final so you can expect the final UI will be more better.

The ui looks cool. Any plans for adding EQ?
