Hi all - @FiiO have finally officially released v1.2.2 of their firmware. Download here: http://x5pack.fiio.net/1.2.1/X5-ota-1.2.2.zip and install using the traditional way via Tech Support

My kernel works quite well on it (you'll need to re-install the kernel zip via TWRP), but Fidelizer's ROM doesn't (yet) allow upgrade to it - so if you're on his ROM you'll need to reflash 1.2.1 base and upgrade the normal way.

@FiiO - as you've removed Viper4FX support, could you let us know if it's possible to now install third-party audio plugins ourselves?

Has viper been taken off these. I was considering buying one because of the viper eq.
this is what FIiO said:

2. The agreement of cooperation between FiiO and ViPER's Audio has expired, so we're afraid that the new version of FiiO Music will no longer have the embedded ViPER Effect plugin. However, we've been working hard on the dynamic EQ and will try our best to develop more audio effects.
If you have purchased the ViPER Effects and would like to continue using it, you may download the apk file of the old version, copy it to the player, and then install it through ES File Explorer (this will overwrite the new version). If you have any other questions, please kindly contact us (email: support@fiio.com, Facebook: FiiOAudio).

There is a thread on the FiiO forum that details just that http://www.fiio.me/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=41935&highlight=V4A

But if you've already got TWRP installed on your player and just flash the SuperSU zip referenced around page 919-923 ? of this head-fi thread then you can skip anything involving kingroot.

*Edit* I've not done this, so YMMV

I had tried to install v4a the very first time I got the FiiO, in fact my first post on this forum was to that effect (pun unintended).

However, whilst it installed successfully I never got v4a effects to work system wide. It comes down to how audio_policy and audio_effects in /system are set up.

Now that FiiO have released the latest (final?) version without viper, that could have changed. If anyone who's got the vanilla version running could try and install it and report back...

Don't worry about the temperature on first boot after installing the kernel, this is normal. Remember the scripts are working in the background for the first time and rebuilding caches and checking the filesystems.
I have flashed the vanilla 1.2.1 firmware, then upgraded to 1.2.2 and played songs for an hour or os.
Then I installed jkbuha's kernel and played songs for another hour.

Everything works and I do not aware of any temperature difference after installing the kernel.

Currently formatting to 1.2.2, kernel isn't far off *taps fingers in anticipation*. So you'd say the crashing issues on the beta firmware are nixed? I don't mean the "pure music" vs "android mode" crashes. I was having constant crashes playing music in the FiiO music app from that one just in android mode. FiiO forum users were saying it was because of background threads working on the album artwork getting indexed or w/e.

I do not encounter any crash on the musica app

Yesterday, I updated the kernel to jkbuha's latest version (2.4, I think)
I just got the 1.2.2 OTA today. When I go to install it through the Tech Support app, the device automatically reboots to TWRP and tries to flash it from there, but it fails.
I've confirmed through the settings that my device is still on 1.2.1.

Any ideas about what I could do? Also, I'm not too knowledgeable about customizing stuff on Android. Let me know if there's any info I've left out.

You need to perform a factory data reset (erase everything option checked, so do remove your storage just in case) then confirm that the kernel rolls back to non jkbuha. Then perform OTA install of 1.2.2. after that you can use the Android tool exe to reflash boot.img and TWRP recovery, do the same steps as before to install the 2.4 kernel zip in TWRP.

Yes you are correct the recovery image is the issue ! I have had the fiio firmware tool (http://fiio-firmware.fiio.net/X5III Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW1.2.1.zip) come bundled with diagnostic apps on the 1.2.1 rom so do a factory data reset prior to OTA update once that stock 1.2.1 is installed. They have carried over into installs of newer ROMs in my experience.

First time I've seen this - are you running the installer via TWRP? It's likely a setup issue.
PM me with the logfile and we'll fix this.
thanks for the respon,

actually it is now solved with FW 1.2.2.

this is what I do :
1. I'm on fidelizer 1.2.1 with custom kernel 2.1
2. Go back to stock recovery with AndroidTool (choose no. 3 only)
3. Install update 1.2.2 via ota
4. Install twrp+custom kernel 2.4 (follow page 956 instruction no. 1)
5. done
