Fiio X5 - Custom/Modded firmwares

post #1 of 675
Thread Starter 

This thread is designed to be a go-to place to get the latest user mods for FiiO X5 firmwares

 

I will try as much as I can to keep this first post up to date with links to the posts of users that provided custom firmwares. I am not responsible for any file hosted outside.

 

A note for the modders: When you are done with your mods, I would suggest putting them in a compressed folder (.zip or the likes). That way you can name the compressed folder anything you want while keeping the x5.fw name intact. This gives you the opportinity to put a readme file with your signature, any copyright thingies you want and a quick install instruction.This will make it easier for you to manage multiple mods and easier for the "consumers" who will have all they need in one package.

post #12 of 675

just saw this thread and OMG, pure gold for me!

but I wonder, if the two lines

 

\system_attribute\default.ini
 <treble_adjustment_value>0</treble_adjustment_value>//-10,0,10
<bass_adjustment_value>0</bass_adjustment_value>//-10,0,10

 

have any function.

What are the risks, when trying to change their defaults?

Am I right, these are ranges from -10 to 10 or fixed values? Means: Can I input '7'??

I thought that this was some "leftover" code from the X3 (they now share the same basic firmware code)

You can try to change it. If it fails, just reflash.

CH23 - Thanks for the reversed scrolling mod. The default scrolling was messing with my head.
