https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xat0ab1m1mccsp/FW1.15Beta.zip

Things changed since 1.11 include
1. Fixed media library update (including hangups during update and failure to show new songs after update)
2. Songs sorted by albums after choosing an artist in Play by Category

However, please note that owing to limitation in internal memory, number of songs that can be loaded in the media library is limited to around 7000.

Please note that the lockscreen prompt (that many people wish to remove from FW1.1) is still there in this version of firmware but will be removed in the version to go with the international release of the X5.

 

Hi Joe,

 

I will install this today, test it and let you know how it works.

 

Then I will switch back to 1.0 and wait for that promised version without the lock screen warnings. Please be sure to make that version also available for download to those of us that already have the X5.

 

Much thanks!

A bit off topic, but a BETA firmware for the X3 ?

Excellent choice.  You'd love it.

Great review! I feel the same way on how bright it is on certain songs. I to will have my review up in about a week.

That's really disappointing to hear (no pun intended) since I have been looking for a player that can support a large quantity of files for years and was hoping the X5 would be the perfect choice. I'm still going to get one since it still seems like the best option, but I'd definitely pay for a second revision that had more RAM and the ability for the library list to be more or less unlimited. Even at 256GB between two cards, that's nowhere close to being enough for all my music, even if I use MP3 format.

I'm still very excited though. Just keeping my fingers crossed for maybe a future hardware revision or updated model that has plenty of RAM to support this.

Do you really need to carry around ALL your music?

I have 3000 LPs and 1500 CDs and  32 gig is enough for me,that's

over 70 Flac 16/44 albums. 

70 is enough choice surely for a portable device?

LOL I have a 480GB ipod and I am running out of space. I admit it's impossible for me to listen the whole 400GB+ of music in one day. :wink_face:

 

But it feels great when I have the option to select whatever I want to listen from the 400GB's. It helps me to expand my music interest in genres, musicians, composers, etc.

I have to agree here, I can understand having a 100gb or so, though I live on 32gb cards (FLAC) quite happily, there's always something I'm bored of and can remove for the next album. Sometimes I wonder if people assume large storage equals thier testicle size. wink.gif
