If you can live with a fading gapless so to speak I'd say yes. The scanning progress bar is worth the upgrade. Sound wise I leave it up to you to decide.

You can always revert back to 1.2.5 if you are not happy. The whole experience including going back to 1.2.5 should take you 1/2 hour at the most. wink.gif

Hey Musicheaven, that's what I thought initially but removing the card and reinserting to provoke the Browse or Scan dialogue and selecting scan didn't work.  Then a factory reset didn't work (both through the UI and then volume up power method). So finally tried to re-install the firmware and that did work.  Not sure if there was a glitch in the initial installation of 1.2.6 but only by re-installing it did it fix it.  That was my experience anyway.

Thanks to Musicheaven, we now have all the firmware revisions in the first post! Download links, links to where the discussions about each FW starts and even the ibasso changelogs! :beerchug:

I just did it and wrote the instructions and it worked for me. I did the re install yesterday and that did not work so go figure.

Note that the instructions need to be followed to the letter, I left my sd card the whole time I re installed and had to eject and re insert many times, scanned so many times I lost count. The instructions above did the trick right away on first attempt.

One more observation, the scanning was slower and longer with the above instructions while the other ones were quick and obviously incomplete.

Indeed!!!!  Ah well, we have working album art now I suppose so all's well that ends well.

 

PS Thanks to you and Soren for all the effort sorting the thread out - big improvement!

Yup, Let them sort it out as I'm not in a technical capacity to determine what's wrong. I've just spent a week or so (apart from the half hour) without using it just to make sure that it's draining battery in shut down mode. Moreover, there's absolutely nothing I can do with the back plate protruding out. Anyway, thanks for your thoughts to my issue and will keep it at that until I get news from MP4Nation.

Thanks heaps, @Sorensiim and @musicheaven for the revamped OP! 

 

Good job, guys!

:beerchug: 

 

...Although my OCD meter is going through the roof when the two spoilers (DAP Size Comparison & Reviews) in the OP aren't spaced apart. :p

 

Aside from that...Is it just me, or does anyone else actually kinda like the funky crossfading act in place of the gapless?

Thanks we are doing our best and Soren is a fast thread builder like the quick home builder puts a frame in no time. I'll leave it to him if he can see it (I did notice it wink.gif ) smily_headphones1.gif

You are not alone I kind a like it, cross fading is a very common technique in DJing so I really don't mind it, I listened to lots of EDM music that uses it constantly so for me I don't notice it as much. I turned it off just to see if I could bare it but that did not work so fading gapless it is. My only point earlier is it'd be nice if they could allow us to set it through setting options on the DX50, that would make everyone happy.

Yeah, Soren seems to be here fairly often, so it should be in good hands:) 

 

Yeah, I agree. If the cross-fading had it's own settings option, that'd be better, seeing that people are going nuts of the failure of the "gapless" functionality. 

Either way, it's a plus for me (because I don't care all that much for gapless in the first place), because all of my songs just turned into a massive mash-up!

Received my DX50 yesterday, it came loaded with 1.2.2 so quickly did the 1.2.6 fw update. Absolutely no issues there, worked like a dream.

Thinking about the battery drain issus that has been discussed recently i just have an observation. My DX 50 has been in transit for 6 days and arrived with a fully charged battery....so little or no battery drain until we all get our grubby hands on the devices.

A picture, because hey..... Why not redface.gif)

It was driving me nuts as well so I dug down in the source and cleaned things up a bit. First post should look better now :smile:

A wonderful job in all respects, Sorensiim.

 

Back to the current firmware discussion:

 

Cross-fading "gapless" could be amusing, but defeats the purpose of gapless; to play music which does not originally have pauses between tracks.

 

The new wallpaper is annoying and visually noisy.  As previously suggested, the ability to upload wallpaper would be nice.  Basic black does the job just fine,
