http://www.ibasso.com/en/download/index.asp  
in the empty DX50 where you just pulled that crap out of and then eject the device from your computer and then unplug it from the computer.  What you just downloaded from my link has an info text in it, open it and it tells you step by step how to upgrade back to stock firmware.  Until you do this, your machine is just an empty husk and won't do anything.  Once it finishes updating (it will tell you by its actions) follow the rest of the directions to complete.  
He already has the stock recovery installed so he doesn't need to flash stock_recovery.zip again (just to prevent further confusion).

You're welcome smily_headphones1.gif Hopefully you learned a thing or two about installing/flashing custom FW's so you can play around with them to your liking in the future.

I won't ever install Rockbox again after the problems I had with it, I couldn't even find my music and then trying to get rid of it took over an hour. I really like the standard firmware anyway and 1.5.0 has a fantastic sound, I really need to get some good earphones to hear it as it should be.

post #13865 of 14957

I could not update to the new FW 1.5.0 from the standard 1.2.8.

I used the same process as for upgrading before.

The DX50 reboots and prints

DX50 MEGA SOUND EXPLOSION SECOND EDITION really hits the spot..kudos DOC2008..
post #13868 of 14957
Ibasso informed today that they replaced the PCBM in my DX50 and will be sending it back to me Monday. I can't wait to have it fixed and to try it with the new FW.

DX50 MEGA SOUND EXPLOSION SECOND EDITION by DOC2008

 

This is excellent with the Westone 4r and has enough lower end impact and intensity to rank as my #1 FW for the dx50 thus far.

 

I thought I had already tried it and I have to say the stock 1.5 FW is excellent music wise but just lacked a little bit bass impact for my liking so just installed the above FW and it will stay for the time being.

I have been really enjoying 1.5 factory firmware although knowing all too well what a difference Doc2008's first Mega Sound Explosion made in comparison to 1.2.8 I could not help myself to the MSEsecond edition any longer!

 

Doc2008...............you've gone and done it again!  I agree cub0ne and paleredfox it is extremely good!

 

Honestly, I am starting to think that all these comparisons between certain DAPS is becoming more and more irrelevant because so much rides on the installed firmware.

Well , i was using rockbox, and today i removed and tried 1.5, sound explosion and mega sound explosion, i found the mega sound explosion suits me the best, but after all i feel slight changes between all but feature wise rockbox equalizer and playlist features (adding playlist through directories), are a game changer, tried rockbox over mega sound explosion but the screen hangs after startup so ireverted to 1.2.8 and installed rockbox over again and back to enjoying my rockboxed dx50.

Just to note also i tried installing the dac drivers with no luck, i disabled the driver signature and it gives me the red warning but still after installing it gives an error in the device manager that driver is not signed.

Also all my tests were through lineout to my pb2 amp.

To boot into recovery hold down volume up before you press the power button. From there there are options to install .zip files from your SD card.

I have tried again to upgrade to 1.5.0 by (1) downloading again the zip file, (2) first resetting to factory presets. 

Still stuck to 1.2.8.

 

I have then tried to downgrade first to 1.2.7 but I cannot either downgrade. The error is identical: "handle script error! ignore..."

 

Please... help...

Try doing a factory wipe from the recovery menu instead of the firmware's menu. I think it's more thorough. I think. And then try updating the FW again.
post #13875 of 14957

Found! Thank you very much, it was my fault.

I was trying to update with the img wrongly put on my SD card. As there was a previous FW on the DX50, it was constantly "upgrading" to 1.2.8 and not the new FW. The factory wipe deleted the old FW file and helped me identify this error.

Thank you hikari50.
