    Same on my unit. I suspect I messed up the install, but I can't seem to undo it.

    I might have to look into finding the batch tool and seeing if that fixes the issue. Otherwise, doesn't seem to be that big of an issue. I may check when I get back home, but I might forget; it'll be a while.

    I have the same problem

    I guess I'll just wait, my 120 is working great as is.

    Mine came from the factory with v2.4.56 installed (June 2019). It works perfectly for me so I don't feel the need to mess with a good thing. If you update, don't forget to do a factory reset and delete the image file after the update is completed.

    .56 is the current firmware. They made an error on the fw number and mentioned somewhere but if you are on 2.4.56, you are current.

    Improvements with this firmware:
    1. Improved Shuffle play mode.
    2. The library is now saved in the internal memory instead of on the micro SD card.
    3. Rectified the bug that only 200 songs were allowed on a playlist.
    4. Supports the new firmware for the XMOS.

    Instruction For Firmware update:
    1. Extract the zip file and copy the update .img onto a micro SD card root folder.
    2. Insert the micro SD card into the SD card slot2. Make sure there is no Micro SD card placed in Slot 1.
    3. Select Settings-Advanced-System update (the system update option appears only after the update.img is detected).
    4. Click OK to start the firmware update.
    5. The DX120 will reboot after the firmware update is completed.
    6. Select Settings-Advanced-Factory Reset to reset the DX120. This is to avoid conflicts with residual settings from the previous firmware.
    7. Delete the update .img from the micro SD card.

    "Library now saved on internal memory instead of micro sd card". What internal memory?

    Obviously, DX120 has built-in flash storage, for firmware, Android and Mango to run. It is not accessible by end user though.

    This is probably not true. As before, an empty folder "log" and a folder ".audio_data" are created, in which the file "audio.db" is located.

    In addition, gapless only works with individual tracks, and does not work with CUE. Sadly! In firmware 2.1.20, gapless always worked.

    I connected the iBasso DX120 to the FX-AUDIO D802C DAC-amplifier with a USB cable and ... there is sound! On previous firmware I did not try this, since there was no corresponding USB-C cable - USB-B. Now I got a suitable cable and I think let me try. And here is the result - our player can work as a digital transport! I don’t know what formats/frequencys/bits this bundle will master, but CD rips play just fine:

    Firmware version 2.5.68 has been officially released, and here is 2.5.68-L0/L1.

    During the usual tests, I couldn't stop to wonder how small and lightweight DX120 is, with the sound that did not push me to stop and return to my usual DX200Cu+AMP9 :) Both ABBA covers by Cher (24/44) and vinyl rip of Camel "I Can See Your House from Here" (DSD128) were enjoyable!
