    Two screws out and then a suction cup to grab screen and pull case off. Mine came apart very easily.
  2. mandello
    Ok, thanks, so just 2 screws...i'll try next week!

    Just got an X5Gen3

    what's the current max size of the database?

    I'm seeing a number of other players (non-android) based with a file limitation around 15K

    Does android allow for more files than that, or is it something else?

    It is VERY dangerous, and I have dealt with bulged out cellphone batteries before. The unit can no longer be powered on; clearly it will require a new battery.

    Dear friend,

    Please PM us your email address. When and where did you buy the X5III? Sorry for bringing inconvenience to you.

    Best regards

    Which I did. And still... no response whatsoever via email or PM. And I'd really like to know where the "sorry" comes in, because I'm not feeling it.

    For those interested in keeping up to date with the free Fidelizer ROMs, the latest 1.2.3 update has been released of today.

    Here's a handy quote with link to the instructions I wrote up and also the system partition fix...thing :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:, which is to be done after installing SuperSU, and prior to flashing the latest kernel https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=1395089523397902029 . I'm not savvy enough to know what's best for going from Fidelizer 1.2.2 to Fidelizer 1.2.3 or Base 1.2.3 to Fidelizer 1.2.3, So I'll say I'm going to use the firmware upgrade tool to go back to base 1.2.1 then put Fidelizer 1.2.3 over that. Your mileage may vary.

    Hi All -
    Couple of different topics moving around at the moment so I'm bringing this one back into the fold for a quick answer:

    Also a new question -
    So I loaded my 2nd 400gb card and now I have around 600Gb of music between the two. Scanned it played a few songs yay.
    Only I think I may have an issue. There are a number of albums I'm missing under a given artist's name. This could be a problem elsewhere but it was easy to identify with this artist because I have around 30 albums but only 4 are showing up??!?!?
    I know the tunes were scanned because I can find them in album/song view. Artist listed when I navigate that way is the correct - so why am I not seeing these under artist view?

    Thanks as always!

    Question: is it worth installing the new Fidelizer? I am on the OFW.
  10. jkbuha
    Not this time for me. Modded OFW+v2.7 kernel gives me better performance. And fully working selinux.

    Plus I have ample free space to add new modules in system, which will be coming in v3.0

    Hello, I need your help because I'm confused after reading (partially) this intensive thread...

    I used to have a X5III two years ago, sold it, and now just bought it again (used one).
    I will use it only as a transport for Hugo 2 (+ Kennerton Thridi, my travelling / hotel gear"). I plan to use UAAP and / or Neutron (have bought both) because of the > 6 band parametric equalization (but need to test if its worth loosing the bitperfect reading).

    I read in this thread that there are altervative ROMs / Kernels, and have a few questions :
    - as a transport only, would it be useful for me to change the ROM from the stock one to an alternative one ?
    - there seems to be more than one offer, so wich one should I choose (for transport + UAPP or Neutron use) ?
    - what do I need to install it ?

    Thank you advance for your recommandations and tips :)

    I would suggest going for OFW 1.2.3 + X5iii-jkbuha-V2.7-TWRP
