Doc, I'm a bit confused… I thought (based on the Russian forum quoted before, see here #12042) that v 1.1 was based on the DX90 2.0.5 ? -  at least I interpreted "все прошивки на базе v2.0.5 для DX90" to mean that, but my russian, unfortunately really isn't that good, so forgive me if I'm wrong… I thought that your v 2.0 was the one based on DX50 1.5.0?

New firmware; very interesting, but there's so many? 

 

Can someone please be oh so kind to recommend me one, whether it be 1.50 or one of the custom ones?

Yes, I've read all pages up to now, but there's just so many firmwares that I'm not sure which to install and not have to install all of them to find out.

The following are the best of the crop (3 in total):

 

Go for the factory 1.5.first IMO it really sounds great. I went from Mega Sound Explosion to this and I am sticking with it.

 

If you use Headphones/IEMS that are maybe warm/slightly slower in signature/ have any low frequency hump then I would definitely suggest:

 

Doc2008 mega sound explosion (based on SX-90FW): (links below)

 

DOWNLOAD MEGA

DOWNLOAD WITH YANDEX

DOWNLOAD THE VERSION WITH THE CWM

 

 

also, this has just come in by Doc 2008 (but only try it if either of the above do not suit your needs)

 

DX50 MEGA SOUND EXPLOSION SECOND EDITION by DOC2008

-port based DX90 standard v2.0.5
-supports USB DAC
-Fixed: Russians tags
-removed sound library and configure the Android
-supports all audio formats
-best sound detail of all my firmware
-the tone is rather pale compared to the first version of the MEGA (may not be suitable for bright headphones)
Bass is excellent in terms of quantity and quality-a clear and articulated
-IMHO: one of my best firmware

Have fun.

Thanks, mate. Will experiment them slowly:) 

 

Btw, sorry for not paying close attention earlier in the thread, but what's the Yandex and CWM versions?

post #13822 of 18446
types of recovery for DX50..yandex ithink is the stock recovery and CWM(clock work mod) is the custom..CWM is mainly used for android devices..it can't flash or install .IMG files..it only works with .ZIP files

oh BTW.. i prefer the mega sound explosion..dx90 FW ported to dx50..love the brightness and separation of it..

Yandex is just an alternate download location!

 

you don't really need CWM version.

 

CWM (ClockworkMod_Recovery)

 

http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/ClockworkMod_Recovery

 

 

For flashing firmwares it's good to use the Ibasso RKbatchtool_for_DX50 (just follow instructions on the PDF) :

 

http://www.ibasso.com/download/RKbatchtool_for_DX50.zip

 

IMPORTANT: After unzipping the tool In the file çonfig.ini file just make sure it is set to ENglish language in the top few lines (as below-just edit it and re save)

You're right, my FW v.1.1 is based on the DX90 2.0.5, but I replaced old kernel 1.2.8 (boot.img) with kernel 1.5.0 for activation USB DAC support. Current Rockbox version doesn't work with new 1.5.0 kernel.

One more thing...Will the Mega sound explosion firmwares improve the LO as well? Or is it one of those HO type of firmwares?

Though the driver is digitally signed in Windows.
