    Fiio X5iii Custom Kernel and Scripts | 2016MHz CPU | 20% RAM increase | Undervolting | New DAC drivers | and much more

    I'm going to update Fidelizer when the new kernel is released. However, the installer provided looks to be corrupt. I get a config error upon opening it and can't get the buttons to respond, ie; "language", etc. It's stuck on Mandarin. If possible, could someone email the installer file...

    Fiio X5iii Custom Kernel and Scripts | 2016MHz CPU | 20% RAM increase | Undervolting | New DAC drivers | and much more

    Had a few "anamolies" today with the player.... both from cold start up(s). ***Player booted up quickly but never received the "3.3 optimization done" message. Tried to reboot and the unit was froze up. Did a hard reset and it rebooted normally. ***Hooked the player up to a Bose Wave unit...

    I had something similar happen with the FIIO player. However, it's their beta version and frankly, I just attributed to it being a FIIO product rather than an issue with the kernel. I've been using UAPP and it's been working like a champ. I'm close to deleting FIIO's music player. McHoop

    Fiio X5iii Custom Kernel and Scripts | 2016MHz CPU | 20% RAM increase | Undervolting | New DAC drivers | and much more

    Yeah, I still have a few problematic albums that give the software fits as far as proper labeling. It seems that soundtracks are really nettlesome, ie; -Inside Lewelyn Davis -Joe Cocker-Mad Dogs and Englishmen However, I've had a couple of regular albums such as Radiohead's Moon Shaped Pool...

    Hilarious....(not laughing at you). For me, Neutron is much better at scanning than UAPP. The latter takes forever(for me) and often doesn't pick up all files. I'm often forced to do a manual scan. After flirting with a handful of apps, I currently have Hiby Pro, UAPP and Neutron...

    "3.0.101+ jkbuha@prispewnic #30 Sat Apr 27 13:27:17 BST 2019" During the process it appears to load and scroll but as the attachment illustrates, it doesn't complete successfully. I was wondering if installing from the internal drive was causing an issue. Could it be TWRP, especially...

    Installed 3.0 via TWRP and I'm still getting a "fail" although the kernel shows up in "About Device." It did not automatically reboot. I've attached the error message. Note: I was forced to place the zip folder in the main drive as TWRP won't recognize any data in the external drive. ??? Is...

    I would first confirm you got a legitimate Fiio product via their website. Fiio representatives monitor this site so hopefully one will respond to your questions. You might also try the Fiio forum on their website. I personally have not experienced your issue. You may have a new albeit...

    Weirdly enough, the Kernel version now shows: "3.0.101+ jkbuha@Virtualbox #4 Tue Mar 26 21:43:05 GMT 2019" ??? Any definitive way to confirm update? No message appeared at the bottom of the short cut bar(android) Powderphinger

    I'm still having this issue with Neutron. Very frustrating. Since I only use the X5 for a music player and don't stream, I guess I'll stick with FIIO's latest version. McHoop

    That explains what happened today to me. Updated to the latest Enhanced Fidelizer and afterwards when I tried to reinstall your kernel, no-go. Error message during the install. And I believe it mentioned "partition." Thanks for the update and explanation. Powderphinger

    Running the same as you. No such problems with stuttering and/or stoppage. I checked a 96/24 and for kicks, 192/24 file and they played nicely. Powderphinger

    No expert and nothing against the modifications being offered (I have Fidelizer) but my advice is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." I had many frustrating issues with the X5iii but now have finally seemed to move past them. Frankly, if you are experiencing no issues, I wouldn't tempt...

    Don't feel bad. I consider myself somewhat computer literant but have been ambivalent about installing the kernel. I have even gone so far as to start the process but haven't had the confidence to complete it. I'm to the point wherein my unit will sometimes boot up to jkbhua's UI where it...

    If you haven't, might try making sure your version of Neutron is the latest, most up to date. I updated over the summer and haven't had any shut-downs since. Powderphinger

    I've just noticed the same behavior here of late. Did you ever find a solution? The player remains functional it's just Neutron that suddenly decides to shut down. Powderphinger

    Funny you should bring up Viper Effects.... while my issues with the X5iii appear to have been cleared up by re-formatting my external disk, I still continue to have issues utilizing Viper. A few examples: I have a single album in WAV format on the player. With Viper engaged, it starts...

    Gents, Personally, I only use the unit as a music player. Don't stream, don't use the android apps at all. My music is all in flac form except for a few wav and dsd. One thing I did recently change was after losing all my files after an upgrade, I now have 100% of my music on the #1...

    I've owned the X5 for about a year. Ownership started off well enough. However, it seems as though the more firmware upgrades that were offered up, the buggier the software got. When I upgraded to firmware version 1.2 things really went bad. Starting the unit is very problematic. Often...

    I really do hope things work out better for you than they have for me. Love the hardware and sound...... when I can get it to start up and play. It's like Russian roulette every time; especially after it has set for awhile. Nothing more frustrating than to be ready to do some mundane...
