    1. Then install titanium backup and freeze technical support application
    2. delete its apk from system/app partition in TWRP file manager (delete system apps at your own risk)

    Since there is still something to fix in the FiiO firmware, I took the whole procedure from 1.2.1. I have never had a problem with sound loss when the display is turned off after an hour, neither with SPDIF nor with LineOut. I was only interested in DLNA at 192 kHz. I didn't even dream of adding the wavpack codec for * .dsf files to add FiiO Music. But through the minidlna under Linux, it plays quite smoothly even 192 kHz even in full resolution up to 5 m from the wifi router. Obviously after the first system hardening and hard reset. I applaud the engineers of FiiO !!
    Obviously, after the DLNA is finished, the system freezes again and a hard reset. Even more enthusiastic applaud engineers FiiO !!

    FiiO Music version 1.1.3 also works in PureMusic mode. Kernel 3.3.2 at 1.7 GHz with no problems. Coax connection to external DAC also fine, DSD64 over COAX is still just an advertising lure - neither through D2P nor through DoP is nothing but PCM 88.2 or 176 kHz
    And the only really good news - I finally bought a Neutron that plays * .dsf compressed at half size into a wavpack container right after installation without entering the settings on internal DAC!! Treasure !!
    Perhaps I can set it up in an hour ...

    To look at it, the Neutron interface strongly resembles the Windows 95 era, but nothing is perfect. It already has 3 color themes, custom colors and font sizes.
    If they were still in power and generated VU meters, I would forgive even the awful icons.

    Anyone know where/how I can get a replacement screen protector? Mine cracked when I got mad at the device and punched it.

    I had a really good laugh when I read your simple honest statement. Glad I didn't have a mouthful of java!

    A few times early in my ownership days I had to really stop myself from throwing it against the wall in frustration. Remembering how much I paid for it and knowing that I would immediately regret this action stopped me mid-impulse. But the punching thing, yeah that didn't occur to me, that would have been somewhat satisfying. Saved a wall repair cost too. I guess just putting it aside and walking away worked for me. I think a lot of it had to do with its slowness and the weak Wi Fi.

    After owning it a couple of years (still stock FW) and seeing that it has improved to a certain degree with the updates, these "urges" have abated. And the thing really does have such a nice musical house sound that synergizes very nicely with a simple audio-out connection with my Cayin C5. I used to wisecrack to myself after I calmed down that the X5III would be voted "DAP Most likely to get thrown against the wall". Glad you're able to get some new screen protectors.

    My x5iii has 1.24 fw and 3.2 custom kernel (much thanks to jkbuha & Co.)
    It's been running error free for some time now, it's main function for me is to sit back in my easy chair, plug in my bgvp dm6's and listen to my music.

    Aaa, rough Preachy1 ...
    I have a pretty aggressive picture in the avatar, but I wouldn't be able to do this to my angular friend.
    But if he hadn't been able to save his existence by returning to his home service in China, I had secretly suggested a dignified monument ..

    Just found a bug with the latest firmware. In Fiio music, the equaliser goes from plus 5dB to plus 6dB with nothing in between. It's the same on the X7ii.

    Dear friend,

    Thanks for your kind feedback. But we fail to reproduce about that. And the EQ of X5III is now dynamic EQ.

    Best regards

    Well, I have the latest firmware on both the X7ii and X5iii and it's the same on both.

    Fiio X5s on Massdrop for $300. Basically it's the X5iii but with 64GB internal memory :-


    Apologies for the thread invasion but it's a bit pointless to start a new one for the sake of an internal memory upgrade :thumbsup:
