    I don't think it's possible to connect to the pc in the mode that the Batch Tool needs with the power on. I've tried to connect in 2 different ways- with the power off and with the power off holding the vol+ button. Because of the boot looping, I can't enter card reader mode nor can I connect with the device on since it would just either keep looping or loop then freeze.

    @Happosai420, just in case... To enter Loader mode for FactoryTool, you need the device to be turned off. To be sure it is turned off, disconnect it from the computer and charger, then press Power button and hold for 15 seconds. This way it works even in boot loop.

    Would love to know if anyone has compared the DX120 sound quality wise to the Mojo?
  5. jamato8 Contributor
    I have both and enjoy the Mojo. It is open and has a smooth sound. I find the DX120 to be a bit more dynamic and the drive to the sound is more fun but enjoy both.

    Which do you prefer between the two?
  7. jamato8 Contributor
    I prefer the DX120. An all in one package, excellent sound, light and very pocketable. I love it with the IT04, IT01s or the JH13 Pro Freqphase. Also the DX120 has a nice battery life and charges fast.

    Thank you.

    Thanks! I found that I had to also reopen the FactoryTool in order to have the DX120 be recognized as a loader and the light to turn green. The only issue I'm having now is that upgrades keep failing. What would make an upgrade fail while using the FactoryTool? I don't think I've ever had one fail while upgrading the DX80

    Bad cable, USB port (on any end) or device's flash. FactoryTool creates log files in the Log folder, so you can read there what went wrong.

    My replacement DX120 arrived yesterday. Thank you iBasso and Penon Audio for your assistance. The touch sensitivity is like night and day compared to my original purchase. The new one is running FW 2.4.56 and so far it's buttery smooth (knock on wood). P_20190622_190330_vHDR_On.jpg

    Hi, i have discovered an odd issue with my dx120 (using latest Lurker firmware)

    Twice i have had really loud static through my headphones while listening (this is so loud i have to immediately remove the headphones to prevent hearing damage). If i turn it off and then on it is still there BUT later on (next day) the dx120 plays normally.

    Any ideas/solutions (apart from returning the unit to the supplier)

    The below are from the log when I try to update the firmware. The cable and usb ports should be fine since I've used them to transfer music before the whole boot looping issue began. If the issue is with the device's flash, can anything be done?

    This kind of log records means the data can't be sent to the device. It is only "Test Device" step which fails, no actual data transfer. You can try another cable (as short as possible) and\or another port (soldered on the motherboard is better than on the PC case).
    It means nothing. Firmware loader uses very simple transfer protocol and is very sensitive to transfer errors. When file transfer protocol just repeats sending, FactoryTool stops trying.

    To tell you that I know what I say, here is a quote from one of my logs (firmware loading stage):

    Another port, another cable, and I'm still able to flash and use this device :) It has no problems with usual file transfer either.

    Another option for you can be to put the update.img file to SD-card, and try to enter the recovery console (press and hold Play button when power on, and continue holding Play until recovery menu appears), and flash from recovery console. Sorry, I don't remember if you tried recovery console... Also, in the recovery console, you can clean data and cache, which works just like factory reset.

    Thanks! I didn't realize that the loader could be that sensitive. I'll try both another port and another cable. I do have a very short cable I could use, but the port I used was soldered on to the motherboard. I can try the other one though. I have only used usb 3.0 ports with the DX120. Would a usb 2.0 port be more stable for the transfer?

    I did try recovery console first before the FactoryTool. I tried a few different updates in case it was the update that was corrupted somehow. When I ran the updates, I noticed that one of the messages that would always pop up was that the trust.img file couldn't be found. I'm not sure if that was significant. I also did a factory reset from the recovery console, and that didn't help.
