    Tried to upgrade from the device itself, so I launched the download. A few moments later while I wasn't checking it powered of, and now when powering on I have a "Error!" message with the Android robot with its belly opened.

    pulsar doesnt play ALACs for me. the file is displayed as OCTET, and audio won't start. it has been the same since pulsar was first tested on the M6 a few months ago.

    I still have song stutters now and then; they are not as frequent as before, but it still happens.

    The newest version on apkpure didn't work for me. I had to use the arm 7 version (not arm64 version) of version 2.07 3. Others may work, that's just the first one that did for me.

    Ok gotta do some work.

    DS Audio whitelisted... What a nice surprise!

    As to be expected it will not be that easy with the white listed apps. :wink:
    But hey we now have plenty to play around with. :wink:

    I thought that white listed apps are going to be downloaded directly from the FiiO homepage?
    Are there any links for this?

    Same issue with local storage upgrade. @FiiO any idea ?

    Just the APK pure site. Very easy to download.

    After a while the device reboots, mentions that the update failed, and prompts to start again. Can't update no matter the way I try.

    Yes that is an option but as it looks like with the neutron app, you have to find the right version which works.
    Downloaded directly from the FiiO site should give one the version of the app which was tested by FiiO and therefore white listed.
    That is what a whitelist is for in my opinion, otherwise they could have simply stated "Hey guys, go to the apkpure site and try any app you like".

    Update via "over-the-air " worked just fine for me. Took about 30 minutes total with my slowish Wi-Fi.

    package rename works, so got to install some apps like
    Podcast Guru - A No Ads Player, imported opml file and seems to work and saves podcasts on sd card.

    Too bad @junkdeck solution does not work after fw update.

    Now time to compare to the r3, had to share that one the last months.

    Wow good news! Been away a bit. So glad they added a lot to the whitelist! I found that the ones I tested and liked are there (SambaPlayer, NewPipe, VLC, Pulsar, Neutron) so I'm glad the time spent paid off. Thanks FiiO :)
    Yeah apk versions can be a tricky thing. I'm sure FiiO will update https://fiio.com/newsinfo/91534.html with the new APKs they verified.

    Meanwhile we can tell here which ones did work for us.

    Interesting that we can now use the Newpipe app. Newpipe can force youtube video into landscape mode. Am watching a video in landscape right now but somehow the brightness cannot be increased. Good anyway because you can listen to all the youtube stuff.

    Important Notice about MediaMonkey:

    As I had reported (or didn't I?) to FiiO the last version of MediaMonkey that seems to work fine in M6 is 1.1.3.
    After that they seem to have a dependency on Google Services that won't let you really use the app.

    This apk seems to work fine, as per my previous tests:
