    i got my dx150 two days ago.
    i use it now out of the box.
    where to start with some updates firmware etc?
    (is there anywhere a site which explains the things about the different androidsystems and which playerapps to use??)
    i think i like to stay with the mangoplayer?

    (sorry for my worse english but learning it is decades ago :wink: )

    Yes! And PLEASE include a search function!

    Precisely! So many people have to resort to third party apps to get the search functionality! It's such a basic function that must be present in our day and age. With a large library of songs a search functionality is definitely needed to reach the song we want as quickly as possible.

    Has anyone found a third party app that does a decent job with search? (Hopefully a stop-gap measure until we have a truly functional Mango player)

    got my dx150 the other day. But just unboxed it. It's either dead flat or its dead on arrival. I'm not getting any indication . Could it be just dead flat? I'm using the included cable but using an ac adaptor to charge off the wall. I really don't wanna have to send it back :frowning2:

    OMG it was just dead flat, just as I was gonna type an email. The charging screen lit up. Phew, now to wait

    Mine was the same way when I received it.

    how long does an initial charge take roughly?
  9. crazyeyes
    I charged mine while at work and wasn't paying attention too closely but I think it was about an hour and a half. But I was using a USB-C to USB-C cable that I had plugged into a Power Delivery (quick charge) port on an anker charger I have at work. So I am pretty sure it was charging faster than if it was just a regular USB brick.

    id like to know about the FW too, do I use the most recent ibasso or lurker? Or do you use both. What's the best way to go for the smoothest functioning etc.?

    Well I updated to Android 8.1 using the iBasso Android 8.1 beta and followed the instructions to install that using the batch tool included on a computer. Then I downloaded the latest 8.1 firmware from iBasso and followed the directions to install it using an SD card. Finally I downloaded the Lurker add on for that latest iBasso firmware and followed the instructions to install that using an SD card as well.

    oh cool, ill give that a whirl, thanks.

    Wait is it the full image or the binary one for lurker? I'm a bit confused here.

    Are you using the Android tool from the download to update to 8.1? For the update to 8.1, when you download the first update to 8.1 for the DX150, you have to open the download, install the Android Tool, install the driver in the download to your PC and then use the .img firmware with the Android Tool.

    hallo paul!

    i downloaded the factorytool but there are only drivers for xp vista win 7 and win 8 ??? my system does not let me use them. i run win 10/64

    i updated the dx150 with the sd-card to 8.1,0.
    was that wrong ?
    maybe its better i reset the player complete??
    can it be that the firmware file DX150-2.11.293 is complete wrong ?? which shoul i use??

    thanks for helping.
