    The mods available in this thread are free of charge and provided by the community. All of these are built on the official FiiO firmware.
     

    When you flash a firmware

    I expressly linked to the post where the firmware was posted in addition to the direct download link. If you like what you see and use, I strongly suggest that you click on the "post" link and go give reputation to the modder. If you have opinions about the firmware, I encourage you to tell it to the modder. It's not guaranteed that they will change their mod but it could give them ideas for future firmware mods.

    This thread contains no firmwares for the FiiO X5II (Second generation) player. These can be found in this thread from @x RELIC x.

    ** DISCLAIMER ** flashing unofficial firmwares is at your own risk. FiiO, Head-Fi or any of its users may not be held responsible for any damage to your device resulting from any unofficial firmware malfunction.
     
     
     
    Feel free to post your own firmware or submit requests to modders. Keep in mind that modders tinker on those firmwares during their free time and are not obligated in any way to answer/fulfill any request from anyone.
     
     

    A note for the modders

    When you are done with your mods, I would suggest putting them in a compressed folder (.zip or the likes). That way you can name the compressed folder anything you want while keeping the x5.fw name intact. This gives you the opportinity to put a readme file with your signature, any copyright thingies you want and a quick install instruction.This will make it easier for you to manage multiple mods and easier for the "consumers" who will have all they need in one package.
     
    When posting new mods please include the following details:
    1. Name of the mod/theme
      1. For new themes: name it whatever you want, I just want a name to list it in the first post
      2. For modifications to existing themes: Provide the name of the original theme so I can list it at the proper location
    2. Version of the firmware. If not specified, I will list it in the latest stable version by default.
    3. Language specific (if applicable)

    just saw this thread and OMG, pure gold for me!
    but I wonder, if the two lines
     
    \system_attribute\default.ini
     
    have any function.
    What are the risks, when trying to change their defaults?
    Am I right, these are ranges from -10 to 10 or fixed values? Means: Can I input '7'??
     
     
  12. CH23

    I thought that this was some "leftover" code from the X3 (they now share the same basic firmware code)

    You can try to change it. If it fails, just reflash.
     
  13. Dizzle77
    CH23 - Thanks for the reversed scrolling mod. The default scrolling was messing with my head. 
     
  14. pe3ucTop
    that looks sweet :) Can't wait :)
