To access CWM, hold the volume up button, hold the power button and then let it go, but keep holding the volume up button. Your DX50 will soon boot into CWM, after which you select "install zip from sdcard" (assuming that you placed stock_recovery.zip into the DX50's internal storage) and then select "choose zip from sdcard". You will now be able to see the zip files in your internal storage. Select stock_recovery.zip and reboot the DX50 from the CWM menu once it has finished installing. Boot into the stock firmware and select update system (assuming that you have already placed the update.img for FW 1.5.0 into the DX50's internal storage. And you're good to go!

Are you sure you flashed the correct files? Because if you did it the recovery text should be yellow, with ~3 options to choose from only. Judging from what you said you probably already managed to install the stock recovery on your DX50 before, and the update.img you flashed through the "system update" option was the wrong one - you probably flashed the doc2008's CWM update.img instead of FW 1.5.0's. For now, just follow the steps I listed previously again, and make sure that the file you're flashing are the correct ones this time.

Took 1.50 out for a walk yesterday for it's initial play. Wow. I think iBasso really hit a home run with this one. Need to put in some more time with it but bass seems punchier yet fuller, sound stage just a bit wider, vocals and instruments more forward, less congestion on congested tracks. I don't know how everything can sound better but it does (to me). It all seems to work together very well. Makes 1.28 sound boring. Unscientifically, I know when I can't wait to the end of the current track to switch tracks because I want to hear how good the next track sounds there is something positive going on and I haven't even tried it with an amp yet.

The stock recovery upon reboot should show up as, I think, 1.4.  The custom recovery is, I think, 1.0.  So if you reboot again and it says recovery 1.4, then you have succeeded in installing the stock recovery and can go on to installing the firmware.  If not, then you still need to follow the direction and install the recovery.  

 

And, as said above, please ONLY install the stock 1.5 update.  Let's make this as easy as possible for now.

wait, where can I get the restore file?  I thought I had it now i'm all turned around...

post #13854 of 18426
Which restore file are you referring to? For recovery - stock_recovery.zip from doc2008's zip package. For stock FW, update.img from the stock FW zip of your choice.

A pictures worth a thousand words.  Here is current the file set up I have inside the DX50....

post #13856 of 18426

right now i'm trying to get back to square one before I get this all screwed up.  I'm all done with RB and I just want to get to the beginning.  I don't know if I even have these files anymore and I'm afraid I screwed up the player because I'm just getting the blue text now that doesn't do anything.  

post #13857 of 18426

part of the problem is allot of the terms being used is greek to me.  I'm asking for an approach assuming that I know nothing.  Terms such as "flash" or "use" as use in relation to what or how?  These terms and references are not processing for me, seriously.  how do I "use" a file?  I'm afraid that it's so screwed up now that now I need concise step by step bare bones instructions that would not leave any confusion to chance because the more I read into this the worst it's getting.

Place the update.img of FW 1.5.0 in the internal storage of your DX50, disconnect and then update via "update system" in settings > advanced settings of the stock FW. After updating your DX50 should reboot with FW 1.5.0, with no rockbox (rockbox doesn't work with FW 1.5.0 at the moment).

Edit- he beat me to it

 

I see stock_recovery.zip in your screen post 13885.  That is what you want.  Make sure you are4 unplugged from your computer.  Now, you need to reboot as you were told at the top of this page post 13846 by holding down the volume button, etc. and when it reboots, you follow what he said.  Choose the stock_recovery_zip.  Again, reboot.  It will do a bunch of stuff, let it.  Don't freak out while it's doing it.  It will take a while.  If it asks you to reboot again, do the hold the buttons down thing again.  After it finishes all of this, you should be back to the original recovery file.  NOW, make sure the device is turned on, plug it into the USB and then into the computer, pull ALL of that crap out that I see  in post 13885 and trash it (and empty the trash!).  THEN place the NEW STOCK FIRMWARE that you downloaded from iBasso (Firmware 1.5.0) here

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.
