    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    Gave up on Mac a few years ago. On the PC side I started with MediaMonkey for sync but switched to MusicBee which has proven to be the best Windows music player I've ever used. Free and the developer somehow fixes things and keeps it going. The sync works but after loading up my music I found it...

    First time I installed the kernel it had issues at mid speed. Backed it down to slow speed and had success. Next update I tried fast speed with zero issues and the FIIO works great. Trying to understand why new guy shows up on a thread to insult the effort's of a generous person who has given...

    I've been formatted with NTFS for most of the time I've had the X5 without issue. AFAIK it isn't supposed to work with Android, but it does. I wonder if going to exFat would do anything but cause me grief.

    Don't know if you can change it but the WELCOME screen should say KERNELMODS.COM says HELLO! or something similar.

    If this Fiio gets any faster then it will be playing songs before I know what I want to play. Wow If you have the time or anyone else wants to chime in on explaining some of the terms used above as Internet search didn't always answer exactly what is going on. For example, I enabled "AROMA...

    The Kernel mod gets rid of all sorts of junk and speeds the player up drastically. I couldn't really do anything online before using the mod as FIIO software had become bloated and inefficient. Now online is no problem for me. Isn't nearly as fast as my phone but it is older modem technology so...

    The current version of Poweramp & the aforementioned Kernel mod will make you very happy and do all you want. Setting up sorts was a big issue for me with FIIO music and now I don't have to use it at all. With the Kernel mod you can even easily remove it from your device and have the device boot...

    Cat's eyes are scary, must be the answer. Seriously we are generations apart so I don't have that particular album. I run all my art through MusicBee on Windows 10 and it's all good. Earlier this year I went through all my music and deleted artwork that wasn't reasonably sized JPEGs. Almost all...

    What album cover for example? Curious to see if it works for me. Have you had this happen on another device or just FIIO running poweramp? I have PA on Fiio and Moto G6 without any issues on cover art.

    Thanks for the update. Works great. I can finally dispense with FIIO music and its random weirdness. Still can't get over the issues that they won't or can't fix with that app.

    Kernelmods website is great, just wish that black backgrounds offered a toggle to white option for people like me who can't stare at the black for very long. I've tried some plug ins for my browser but they don't work very well. Can't wait for the additional magic of version 4.

    Not sure why I need to do any of those things you mention. At this point I just want to play music, which it does and not tinker anymore. I rarely take the unit with me so battery life isn't an issue. If it did a better job of Bluetooth connectivity I'd be more interested in using in my car...

    Just FIIO being honest and warning you that battery troubles are to be expected. How refreshing and LOLing.

    I'd laugh if it wasn't so darn frustrating dealing with these companies. Looks to me like they use the same battery and just print one spec and number on one side and a different one on the other. You could try going here...

    Thanks for the post, can you remind me/us how to kill the OTA from asking to update? Seems like it was easy but I don't remember the process.

    I was at that show. I remember the long walk carrying a cooler that leaked most of the liquid. I remember the HEAT, beyond that I don't remember anything. I'm kind of shocked by the crowd size reported as I don't recall being cramped for space. I honestly don't remember the music. In fact I...

    What is the dreaded SD2 card shutdown? I think I might have had a few instances of it not being recognized but that was awhile ago. Since using your Kernel I have not notice it at all.

    Funny about Album art. Poweramp is the first player that shows everyone of my albums without issue. Foobar, FIIO and assorted others always choked on some.

    Updated just now and for some reason it shows 3.2 kernal optimization message. Also in setting it shows me "Tue May 28 13:29:52 BST 2019". I know I did the update because I selected the auto load to Power Amp for the first time I've used that and that worked fine, so what could have gone wrong...

    Line in to my car uses the cars DAC, even though it is processed already by the FIIO. Bluetooth in my set up avoids the car DAC entirely. I have an after market amp & digital processor that handle that chore. I could wire the FIIO to go into that device, which I may eventually do.

    actually Bluetooth blows the internal DAC away in my car. it is bit perfect from the FIIO with atpx. with a MINI Cooper the internal DAC does all sorts of weird processing, sounds awful. I have all my music on a USB stick and have never been happy with it. the line in is equal to the USB. Ugly.
