FiiO X3II DAP firmwares with custom themes

    The last regular firmware version of the FiiO X3II digital audio player is 2.0 at FiiO's site. An interesting previous version is 1.4, the last with OTG support (adding storage on the USB port, which is not officially supported but works for most).
     
    FiiO allows the firmwares to be customised with alternative images and graphical properties (colours, font sizes...). FiiO shares instructions on how to customise a firmware, how to install a firmware, and its own large text font firmware. Here are some public firmware variations shared on Head-Fi:

    Zweistein's high-contrast, bold font
    Shared on dropbox, source files and scripts on github. All themes have larger playtime and track numbers (below the progress bar) and reveal as much as possible of the album art with little transparency so text stays readable.The themes are:
    • White/green on black
    • Same as 1 but with the traditional line as progress bar
    • White/orange in slightly bigger font, with watery progress bar
    • Same as 3 but with pacman progress bar
    • Same as 1 but with a big font - the biggest that still shows all letters completely
    • Same as 1 but with an even bigger font - cutting off the tail of lowercase letters g, j, p, q, y.
