    1.1.5 firmware with the latest kernel would tide me over for now. I use the WF-1000xm3 more than the wired 'phones.

    Thanks for your responses.

    It works

    if you get the optimizations prompts on boot then yes you’re good (it may still show correct kernel version in system info when incorrectly installed).

    for my usage losing the real estate on the bottom of the screen is a no go. *shrug*

    I do get the prompts.

    The estate at the bottom? You mean the onscreen buttons? I kinda like it that way. Sometimes gestures are a hit or miss.

    Sorry I want this to work for you! Don’t want to come off the wrong way. That’s good. Was just pointing out to not rely solely on the system info.

    Once I’m in my preferred player, Neutron, there’s really no reason for me to switch apps or close anything. If the app has full screen or hides the notification bar, the presentation is just that much cleaner, to me.

    Hey. No. You're not coming off the wrong way at all. I am actually appreciative of your inputs. Most especially with the one where you pointed something bout the newer firmware. Made me realize that it is not the libaudioflinger.

    And it is working pretty well. I rather get better BT sound than a full screen. I switch the buttons on when i was on the newer firmwares. So not a big deal at all. Thanks

    My X5-III feels like it's on steroids now. Great job. Thanks so much for this!

    Don't know if what I seek is obtainable with the Kernel but here goes.

    Balanced Tubo output is pretty good using FIIO Music App. I generally like the Poweramp interface a lot better although I realize I give up some resolution on some of my music. The Balanced output isn't nearly loud enough with Poweramp. Can this be addressed or is it an issue with how Poweramp works, Fiio works, Android works or ?

    If it can't be done, probably just go back to the non balanced cable and continue with Poweramp.

    2 weeks ago PowerAmp dev said (regarding full support of Balanced & Line Out) “I have the device, but I still need a balanced 2.5 cable to test it. As it detects it as speaker, obviously system is not reporting output properly and some workaround are required. I hope that will be sorted out in the next build.”

    So hopefully you’ll have some sort of solution in time. Have you already turned off DVC & all that?
    I’d try making a bug report about it: https://forum.powerampapp.com/forum/19-bug-reports/

    Thanks, wasn't aware of that info. Note to self: Don't adjust settings that effect volume while IEM's are in ears. The DVC off boosted the volume. It is a bit confusing because I have to set up my phone PA way different than the FIIO, hard to keep track of the changes.

    I'm going to update Fidelizer when the new kernel is released. However, the installer provided looks to be corrupt. I get a config error upon opening it and can't get the buttons to respond, ie; "language", etc. It's stuck on Mandarin. If possible, could someone email the installer file for Fidelizer?


  12. WitzyZed
    the installer for fidelizer, as in the firmware upgrade tool? that's this http://fiio-firmware.fiio.net/X5III Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW1.2.1.zip
    or the update.img ? which version ? 1.2.5 is here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/tex8a7p2dlvdjyf

    pretty sure that's what i'm using atm
