    Idle shutdown is when the player will automatically turn off if not used/listen the music etc.

    Sorry for late response, I didn't come across this until today. You can find APK of previous version of Tidal from APKPure, download them to the internal memory and you can install the APK through ES File Explorer

    Lithium battery will decline after extensive use, the general observation is 5000 charging cycle but it also depends how you have been using in during the past few years. You can try to calibrate the battery gauge by following the instruction I shared in previous discussion. You might be able to recover a couple of hours per charge after that.

    Dear Andy,

    Thank you but I have already tried that, none of these versions could be installed and I was subsequently given a very old version of Tidal by helpful Cayin staff. However, the very very frequent known Tidal 'stutter' issue was very prominent, making Tidal essentially and practically unusable.

    Would you be so kind as to try installing Tidal using APK packages and let me know which version you were able to install? Thank you so much, I really want to continue using the i5 but at its present state, it is far from usable.

    Sincerely.

    Sorry, I gave away my i5 to a Headphone brand during one of the oversee show, so I don't have the i5 with me anymore. If I need to test Tidal on i5, I need to ask acquire another i5 from China and perform the testing in Hong Kong (Tidal is not available in Mainland China).

    Can someone using Tidal with i5 please check the version number of your Tidal installation?

    I can confirm that the latest version which works on my Cayin (and im updated to the latest OS version) its TIDAL Music - Hifi Songs, Playlists, & Videos 2.7.3 I have all features running so yes, its fully functional. The 2.7.4 version requires Android 5.0

    Hi Andy, I'm from Hong Kong too, I could pass you my i5 for testing, can you please PM me?

    Thanks so much.

    Thanks for the info, am I correct that the version that you are using is the result of past updates through Google Play, instead of a fresh install? I was also using a much newer version but once I uninstalled Tidal, I was no longer able to install newer versions, not from the Google Play nor APK download.
     
  11. Andykong
    Thank you very much, so 2.7.3 should work with i5. Wonder what is the reason behind Ray's problem.

    Hi, thanks for this. I am having the same problem with Spotify downloads. I have tried moving the downloads to the internal and TF card. Hiwever, although the download shows in the file folder on the card I still get a message from the dap saying that I am running out of internal storage and also one from the Spotify app saying it has run out of available storage and needs space to operate. Have worked my way through this whole thread and this is the first time I have come across anyone else who has a similar problem. Any updates on this?

    I gave up on the i5 a while back... especially when they stopped development for it (which I understood why, with hiby releasing their own DAPs). Picked up a hiby r3, and then recently an r6 (fantastic dap with plenty of onboard storage for offline playlists!)

    I never got a response about the i5 using the wrong storage for offline playlists either - unfortunately I don't think there is a solution since the i5 is basically dead in the water at this point :/
     
  15. Zildon
    Okay, I appreciate your quick reply. That figures as I picked up a used Cayin I5 quite cheap at £170. I am really impressed with the sound but realise that the Hibby player is a bit limited and the WiFi a bit clunky. How did the sq compare with the R3 and R6?
