Well, I don't know what's faster at this point, backreading this thread or waiting for that new FW :) 

 

EDIT: Maybe that's "pain in the horse". Horses pain is bigger than ass pain, right? :D

Touché but if you read backward past the first courageous souls who loaded the FW 1.1.5 you'll find out not everything is well and the search for the ultimate fix is still out there! smily_headphones1.gif

Well I would not be doing too much messing around with tags and so until the new FW is out which is due today. iBasso emailed a reply to my question that these bugs are getting priority and due to be corrected in this week's FW release.

 

But the earlier suggestion of following this file folder format is well worth doing...

 

\\Music\Artist Name\Album\[Track#] [Artist] [Title] eg. \\Music\Pink Floyd\The Wall [Disc 2]\01 Pink Floyd - Hey You.flac

 

Apart from the apostrophe issue (not playing most tracks with words like "Don't","Let's" etc) my albums play fine and in order. Using common folder structure is always going to be wise since device makers and their FW writers are going to (SHOULD) follow standard practise you'd expect.

Am I the only person who wish that there is a option to remember separate volume level for each gain setting? It's more convenient when switching between gain settings without having to slowly adjust the volume level again.

I am an old school analog guy, but I have recently developed an interest in DAPs and streaming digital sources.  I lurked on this site and appreciated everyone's excellent advice and insight.  

 

After joining Head Fi, my first DAP purchase was a Clip+ (and I also purchased a few headphones).  I have owned Sennheiser HD600 phones for several years.  I always respected the sound quality of the HD600 cans in my 2 channel systems.  

 

I have been reading the X3 and the DX50 postings with great interest.  When I read about all the effort that everyone endures to work around buggy software, it makes me wonder how long I have to wait for a stable option.  I know the Clip+ is not the same level of fidelity as the X3 or DX50, but it is very stable, scans directories fast without me having to change any of my tags, and does gapless playback.  I respect how Fiio and iBasso are releasing firmware to address the issues, but is it worth the effort to wait 45 minutes to scan a microSD and not have Artist/Album display order?  I just want a player with good SQ that plays FLAC and has Album and Artist/Album display orders.  I prefer a neutral sound signature.

Still have problems with the DX50.  My biggest beef with it so far is that the DX50 doesn't play song in a sequential order.  It still fail to pick up every songs in my microSD card.  I'm also struggled to connect the unit to my computers.  It also freeze and shut down a lot.

 

On the next update, I hope iBasso will be able to rectify these issues as well as getting the coaxial output to properly working.  Like many others, I notice that the unit sound more open and less congested after the firmware upgrade.  Right now it is running neck to neck with my Sony NW-A867 walkman in standard 16/44.1.  Of course, the DX50 pulled ahead when playing hi-rez materials.

The DX50 seems very well developed to be a niche device much like the fuzzy logic washing machine. It will have one job and do that well, but also has less brain to do anything else, making it very dumb device to make use of android and linux kernel. The whole device is programmed as MangoPlayer (/system/bin/MangoPlayer + additional libraries + data files), the bootloader/kernel loads this MangoPlayer, which is native android application seemed to be coded in C++, I tried to disassemble it and found from initial booting to system shutdown is coded in this player, which includes drawing the screen. To my knowledge it doesn't use any APIs android provides, since from init to shutdown is controlled by native application,  so trying to run android launchers, apps will require much hacking and attempting. As my first android device, it was fun! I will leave it to experts to bring some real android goodness.

 

Initial firmware came with recovery that is rooted, connected to ADB and showed much promise. I was able to install ClockWorkMod recovery, able to backup/restore. The I soft-bricked my device by corrupting bootloader by trying to install custom ROM from similar rockchip based device, thankfully I was able to get my system back by using RKBatchTool. Version v1.15 closed ADB connection, for those adventure souls who wants to have CWM recovery, ADB, even original v1 recovery (if you have dump), you can try (and could become proud owner of expensive brick), unpack the update.img (use XDA forum), add generic CWM recovery from androtab.info, repack it, update through DX50 or RKBatchTool v1.7 with rockchip usb drivers.

 

May i know which tool you are using for unpack the update.img?

Uhm... I don't mean to patronize you, but if you don't know how to open up the .img, should you be messing with the files inside it?

don't know why.................

I had a search under 'volume', but couldn't find anything.

There's a bug I have found and it's happened twice in a couple of hours.

When I'm going up and down volume finding the right listening level, on two occasions the volume has gone mental and started increasing in segments on it's own getting louder and louder, when it does this I have no control over the volume buttons and the touch screen becomes unresponsive afterwards, I'm left no choice but to rip the headphone jack out as it keeps increasing to full I imagine, the only way to bring it back to normal regaining volume  control and touch screen is by rebooting. 


Anyone else had their volume go crazy on them?

I had one occasion of the volume going all the way down (when I was trying to lower the volume). Long holding the on/off button to restart the device and volume could be adjusted again. Couldn't reproduce the problem again, but I think it might have something to do with multiple presses of the volume button while there are other tasks being performed by the processor.

You can use rk-tools (https://github.com/rk3066/rk-tools) to pack / unpack the img.

 
First you have to build them, then unpack the update to a "classic" image:
 
./img_unpack update.img update.raw.img
 
Then unpack the image to files using afptools:
 
./afptools update.raw.img update
 
This will create an update directory containing the rkimage files, system image is located in the Image directory, an you can pack / unpack it as a classic Android system image.
