The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.5.0 - Page 1016

post #15226 of 15233

I succeed to install win 7 64bits driver for DX50...

 

You can download signed drivers here https://mega.co.nz/#!21Z2wLDC!N0FowUEoO2InF4pSfYDx1C6Rfh9C7P15T7t5NipJqng

 

Extract them to your C:\ Drive (important), launch command prompt with admin rights, and go to step 5b.

 

Tuto from the scratch :

 

Thanks to this website : http://www.deploymentresearch.com/Research/tabid/62/EntryId/63/Sign-your-unsigned-drivers-Damn-It.aspx

 

1. Requirements

 

Go to www.microsoft.com/downloads, download and then install the Windows SDK for Windows 7 

Go to www.microsoft.com/downloads, download and then install the Windows Driver Kit 7.1.0

Go to www.ibasso.com, download and then extract beta driver of DX50 to C:\IbassoSigned (Important to create a directory with this name !!!)

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the next steps open a command prompt with admin rights

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

2. Sign AD DX50 driver


cd /d "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin"

 

makecert -r -sv C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.pvk -n CN="IbassoUnofficial" C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.cer

 

cert2spc C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.cer C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.spc

 

pvk2pfx -pvk C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.pvk -pi ibasso -spc C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.spc -pfx C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.pfx -po ibasso

 

cd /d "C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\selfsign"

 

inf2cat.exe /driver:"C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad" /os:7_X64 /verbose

 

cd /d "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin"

 

signtool sign /f C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.pfx /p ibasso /t http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll /v C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\mangoadwinusba64.cat

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

3. Sign USB DX50 driver

 

cd /d "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin"

 

makecert -r -sv C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.pvk -n CN="IbassoUnofficial" C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.cer

 

cert2spc C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.cer C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.spc

 

pvk2pfx -pvk C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.pvk -pi ibasso -spc C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.spc -pfx C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.pfx -po ibasso

 

cd /d "C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\selfsign"

 

inf2cat.exe /driver:"C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb" /os:7_X64 /verbose

 

cd /d "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin"

 

signtool sign /f C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.pfx /p ibasso /t http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll /v C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\mango_usb.cat

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

4. Install Certificat AD DX50 driver

 

certmgr.exe -add C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.cer -s -r localMachine ROOT

 

certmgr.exe -add C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad\IbassoAdDrivers.cer -s -r localMachine TRUSTEDPUBLISHER

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

5. Install Certificat USB DX50 driver

 

certmgr.exe -add C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.cer -s -r localMachine ROOT

 

certmgr.exe -add C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb\IbassoUsbDrivers.cer -s -r localMachine TRUSTEDPUBLISHER

 

Go Directly to part 6.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

5b. Install Certificats USB et AD (only if you are comming from my downloaded signed drivers https://mega.co.nz/#!21Z2wLDC!N0FowUEoO2InF4pSfYDx1C6Rfh9C7P15T7t5NipJqng )

 

Open Windows explorer and go directly to C: / IBassoSigned / x64 / mango_ad and double click on the file IbassoAdDrivers.cer , then let all default option, click on Next buttons until it close.

 

Do the same with USB drivers : Open Windows explorer and go directly to C: / IBassoSigned / x64 / mango_usb and double click on the file IbassoUsbDrivers.cer , then let all default option, click on Next buttons until it close.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now the drivers are signed and cerificated so you can install them

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

6. Allow Windows To use this "kind" of signed driver

 

Always with command prompt and admin rights: 

 

bcdedit /set testsigning on

 

Restart your Windows

 

Your Windows is in test mode (lower down corner)

Install the two drivers with command prompt and admin rights :

 

cd /d "C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_ad"

 

pnputil -a mango_ad.inf

 

cd /d "C:\IbassoSigned\x64\mango_usb"

 

pnputil -a mango_usb.inf

 

 

Restart your Windows

 

Plug your DX50 with USB DAC Mode enable, and enjoy !

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

7.Some hint to avoid Blue Screen Of Death

 

- don't put your ibasso DAC as default sound system (use a media player, like the excellent MusicBee, where you can choose your audio output)
- don't use the ibasso's dedicated sound volume control
- if you shutdown your windows OS, close the media player software and unplug usb ibasso

- if your system crashes, don't forget to unplug the dx50 and plug it when your PC is on windows Desktop

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Use it at your own risks, and sorry for my english (i'm from France), if there is something missing or need some help, send me a PM or post in this thread.

 

 

AND PLEASE IBASSO's STAFF, SPEND ONE OR TWO HOURS ON THIS F***ING DRIVERS, THAT's A SHAME TO DO ALL THIS S**T TO MAKE A POOR DRIVER WORKING. DX50 IS A WONDERFULL PRODUCT, DAC WHEN IT'S WORKING IS TEN THOUSANDS MILES AWAY FROM FIIO X3 DAC, AND IT DON'T DESERVE IT TO HAVE A SO POOR SUPPORT ! (sorry this upset me a lot!!!)

 

Good Luck !

I've made an important update on my previous post, if you are installing from my signed drivers (https://mega.co.nz/#!21Z2wLDC!N0FowUEoO2InF4pSfYDx1C6Rfh9C7P15T7t5NipJqng) go directly to step 5b.

 

PS : i thought that the tool that allow to install "home made" certificate (certmgr.exe) was in Windows 7, but you have to install Windows SDK (1,4 Go) /csb

It works great with PB2. The LO is a lot better than the HO. I've been using the PB2 a while now with all my IEMs and cans. It even drives orthos like my mad dogs and my HE500 quite well. My main portable can now is my TH600, I like listening to EDM on the go

That is good news thanks for the write about it. I wanted to ask if you have heard the DX90 and if you feel the price is justified in comparison to this. I am currently using a rockboxed ipod 5.5 and have been trying to find out as much as I can to see if it is audibly much improvement over the  ipod with flacs that I have

I couldn't agree more, an otherwise fine (even excellent consider its price point) product is hampered by mediocre software support, disappointed.

Yes, I emailed them in the middle of september and they promised the final drivers will be out in September, and in late September they answered "very soon now"... Their words mean very little to me after all this struggling.

IMHO they should hire some enthusiasts like Dmitry as workers and make Mango UI fully "open source" for them only! That would be awesome and so could community give better feedback and resolve problems faster and get good new ideas/tweaks.

post #15233 of 15233

Other than being bound by SOC NDAs, I've never understood why any of these "boutique" manufacturers bother re-inventing the wheel and designing their own UI's/ firmwares. The results are always so amateurish.

 

I'm sure the first manufacturer to collaborate with the Rockbox codebase for their port would put out an excellent product.

 

After all, Android's success is built on the shoulders of existing technology (Linux).
