Thanks mate. Just seemed odd to go halfway down the list then pop over to the side, then back to the list. I'm sure I'll get used to it :)

It's staying on for a bit - nice work!


Hi Damian, thanks for having a look. Uzi2 has rightly identified why it's like it is - I wanted to experiment with a different layout - but I take your point. Once you're beyond the initial starting point the hop to the side does jar a bit until you're used to it.
If enough people like it I might revise it with a more straightforward layout - feedback's always welcome.

Been having a go with it and that's the only thing that jumps out. Love the readability and simplicity. Matches my amps too :p
 
Well done.

X5 II unofficially announced. Looks like the same screen size but not sure if it's exactly the same as the screen used in the gen 1 X5 (I hope so). Now the Launcher uses 5 items instead of 7 and the borders on either side of the screen have been reduced.

Check it out.

What's your avatar, btw @CraterzSC?

It's something that I have been using for a very long time. The image is a bald baby, sporting orange sunglasses, wearing a set of 'phones, and has a nose ring. Never had a nose ring myself, but did have my ear pierced many moons ago. The image kind of fit my personality (bald, loves music especially the blues genre (hence the blue overall hue), and is a bit different (nose/lip piercings)), so I've always used it as my avatar. Here it is in a larger size. Don't know where I found it originally. Wish I could say that I made it, but I'm not that good with PhotoShop.

Thanks! I'm not bald but have very close-cropped hair. I've also had many, many piercings but have taken them all out now to be a boring old dad :wink_face:

For anyone who's downloaded 'CORROSION', you'll have found the default art screen to be a rogue image at odds with the theme - it's corrected here (link also changed in my original post)...

Hey guys, I updated the first post
 
"X5_Classic" from @x RELIC x was added.
 
"Solar" and "Lunar" from @AsianInvasion were added.
 
"CORROSION" from @theUKMrT was added
 
"Shade of Black" from @Dobrescu George was updated.
 
I also added the "3 in 3" v1 video from @Hawaiibadboy in a section at the end of the table for easy access.
 
I moved all of the 2.4 firmwares in the "Archive" post.
 
Thank-you @x RELIC x for the link to the X5II this looks promising! However I think I'll stay with the X5 v1 (for the moment). I just hope they'll fit the same firmware for both hardware version so that way mods will be compatible both ways!

Relic, really liking simplicity of Classic. Only thing I would say, backgrounds seem rather dark grey losing contrast. Nice and nostalgic though!

It was a toss up. Using black and white fonts the background couldn't be too dark or too bright.

The new launcher uses five icons instead of seven so there will have to be some re-working of the current themes if transferring over to the X5 II. However, and I'm not 100% positive, but it looks like the same screen.

Quick update to Hydrogen
 
  1. Update to fw2.5
  2. Improved EQ
  3. Improved Fastpick
  4. Improved topbar
  5. Improved playing screen
  6. Improved some other stuff I can't remember
 
Nothing major. It didn't appear too outdated, since it was one of the newest themes I made under fw2.4. This is what it looks like:
 

 
Download:
  1. Here
 

 
Release Notes
 
- Name of the mod/theme: Hydrogen 1.1
- Version of the firmware: 2.5
- Languages: All
 

 
The Usual Information
 
- Feel free to use this theme as a base for other themes
- I will take all feedback into consideration
- All graphics are made by me or are modifications of the original images by Fiio
- Finally, all of my themes except Elegance is up to 2.5
 

 
If the X5II is a fairly large upgrade to the X5 in sound, and if firmware tools are released for it, I might upgrade.
