Fiio X5 2.0 Firmware - Page 2

post #16 of 23

Can someone tell me how I go about updating the firmware on my x5 to 2.0? Do you just download the software to the sd card off the card reader, or do you need to download the firmware to your computer and then move to the card? Very new to this stuff so I would appreciate some detailed instructions.

 

Thanks

Ditto.  Could one also use the included memory stick to update the firmware or does it have to be done by the card?

I just downloaded the zip file, extracted it and copied the file to the x5tf1 card.  I held down the upper left key and turned the x5 on and left it alone to update.  Not seeing the screen, I haven't checked yet if it worked, but I'll get my son to look at it later.  I do know from many failures that, 1) card formatting is done by the X5 and not my computer, 2) make sure that the card is empty before copying the FW to it, and 3) remove the FW file from the card after doing the update.  I hope someone will correct any steps or suppositions I made in error.

Thank you. Enjoying some music now. Downloading music was simple too. The font on the X5 is really small.

Liking the newest FW quite a bit. Font size is great, SQ is excellent (duh), and despite what I've read, learning to navigate through the UI ain't bad. Pretty short learning curve.

 

A few quibbles:

 

1. When I play the very first song after powering up, the first second is often cut off. 

 

2. If I power up to a now-playing screen, moving to the directory takes me to a blank screen before moving to the TF card browse screen. Small but annoying. 

 

3. Instead of going to the previous track immediately, it'd be nice if the "Previous" button started the current track over. And then a press at the beginning of the track would to go the previous song. 

 

Honorable Mention: It'd be nice to get rid of the "Trashes" folder on the TF screen...

Reading your post, I was surprised that you like the font size. I read several complaints about this somewhere else. Did the font size change with the new firmware? Is it possible to do that?
