Wow! That is so awesome. I will try my best to make this happen. I’ll let you know when I’m successfully done. Appreciate your time and effort.Try using a 8Gb or 4GB uSD card and follow the below:
1. download and install https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ on your PC
2. download the latest Lurker Firmware updater ; https://github.com/Lurker00/DX220-Firmware-Add-on/releases/download/DX220FirmwareUpdater/DX220FirmwareUpdater.zip
3. unzip the DX220FirmwareUpdater.zip image to your desktop - this file is used to create the boot partition on the uSD card - it is not the firmware add-on - that comes later...
3. run win32diskimager and write the DX220FirmwareUpdater.img file from your desktop to the uSD card
If all went right , you should have SD-card labeled as DX220UPDATE, with the following content:
sdupdate.img is empty (0 bytes), and it is the placeholder for the real firmware update image file. You now need to get the actual firmware and copy it to the uSD.
Now you need to get the latest firmware add-on
4. download the firmware add-on from https://github.com/Lurker00/DX220-Firmware-Add-on/releases/download/v1.21/DX220-A8.1-L1.21b1-sdupdate.zip
5. unzip the firmware to your desktop and copy sdupdate.img to the uSD card - overwrite the file that's there.
6. Safely eject the uSD card from your computer
7. ensure no USB cables are plugged into the DX220 and shut it down. (make sure it has a good charge of at least 20% or more)
8. Insert the uSD card and power on the DX220 - it should now patch the firmware and tell you to turn off and remove the uSD card when it's finished. This should only take a minute or two.
9. When told to do so on the screen - remove the uSD card are reboot your DX220.
You should now be patched.
You now need to follow the readme file that's included to register your device with Google for the Playstore to activate. You use the USB Audio App for this.
"Uncertified device" problem
To work around uncertified device problem, you have to register your device in Google.
The registration page is here:
Please read below how to do it. Meanwhile, to stop the annoying notification, long tap on it
in the status bar and turn it off there.
To find out your Google Framework Services Android ID:
1. Start "USB Audio" application.
2. Open menu (3 dots at the right top corner) and select "Google Android ID".
If your device has already assigned the ID, you'll see it on the screen. It is copied
to the Android clipboard, so you may try to tap to the link, logon to Google account in
the Chrome browser (NOT on the device! Tap the left button in the Chrome!)) and paste the ID
for registration. Instead, you may use your computer to open the link and carefully type in
all the 19 digits to register.
If it does not show the android_id (19 digits), it means you haven't connected to Internet
long enough for Google Services to create the ID.
After registering, it may require to reboot, connect to WiFi and wait for some minutes,
until the uncertified status becomes 5 (five). From now on, your device is registered
and you are allowed to use Google Services.
If you don't do this last step, Playstore will not work properly.
Note these links are only relevant to apply to the current official version from iBasso and later future versions should use the latest Lurker mods.
Goodluck! You are patching the firmware at your own risk. If you don't feel confident doing this then don't do it.
