If app is not successfully installed, you may have to uninstall your existing FiiO Music app, the version # is identical (1.1.0) to that found in OFW 1.2.4., but it is a fix nonetheless.

Whats the pause issue you are discussing ?
When hitting the lock screen / power button, people were saying FiiO music (exclusively?) in Pure Music Mode would pause playback. And it was dependent on the output used too? Like maybe 3.5 headphone output was unaffected, and 2.5mm headphone output was, I know users said line out was. I wasn't able to repeat the issue myself even when it was brought up. But FiiO posted a new(?) .apk of FiiO Music 1.1.0, the same version number that came with firmware 1.2.4. But that fixed the issue for that particular user, and I wasn't able to repeat it again, either.

In my case the issue is (both android and pure music, any output):
- Start playback in Fiio music (any version), press pause with the screen shut down
- Wait for more than ~ 30 seconds, press play
- The screen lights on, the music stutters, and the other track starts playing

I have changed all the firmwares and all the kernels and nothing seems to help. Also tried various SD cards and only copying some of my music (not all).

UPD: Tried with OMNIA Music Player - it also lights up the screen after a long pause, but at least it can resume playing the same track. It's a pity that button fast forward doesn't work on it, though

My X5III has FW (Fidelizer) 1.2.4, custom kernel 3.2, using 1.1.0 apk of FiiO Music shared on the forum, in pure music mode, using 3.5mm headphone output. I had a song playing, I turned off the screen, paused the song, started stopwatch, around 40 seconds I hit play, screen lit up, and within two seconds the song resumed from where it was paused. There was no switching to "other" songs.

Updated just now and for some reason it shows 3.2 kernal optimization message. Also in setting it shows me "Tue May 28 13:29:52 BST 2019".

I know I did the update because I selected the auto load to Power Amp for the first time I've used that and that worked fine, so what could have gone wrong here?

NEVER MIND, I realized I had the leave previous Kernel check box on.

Hi,

I had the same issue several times and is not "fiio music" related but rather firmware update related.
I Did the following to resolve the issue:
  • Find FiioMusic folder via ES Explorer and remove folder
  • Go to TWRP and Clean Cache and Dalvik.
  • Reboot and reconfigure FiioMusic app
Hope this help you resolve your issue :)

im not finding this firmware to be stable.
2 or 3 times out of 5 when turning on the device it gets suck on the fiio boot logo and then turns off after a few mins.
Only way to get it to boot is recovery mode and flash old kernel

The kernel hasn’t been unstable or causing any boot problems for me. Of the ten or more times I’ve turned this thing on since yesterday morning, not one time did it hang on booting.

And another one here - same symptoms. I finally installed 3.3 with the lower speed version rather than balanced that I'd used with 3.2 and it seems ok now.
