New Fidelizer port is available - iBasso DX150 V1.13.202-DX220Port
Based on iBasso DX220 firmware version V1.13.202
With fast MangoPlayer version 2.1.9 (brown)

https://www.fidelizer-audio.com/ibasso-dx150-oreo-8-1-purist-rom-version-v1-13-202-ported-from-dx220-rom-released/

P.S.
Waiting Lurker for his magic on top of this (MangoOS on A8.1) :)
I'm also waiting on Lurker's next update but saw the updated Fidelizer page this morning. I installed Fidelizer 1.13 a few hours ago and immediately found some pros and cons.

Pros:
- AMP9 now has option for Low or High gain under Audio settings. Definitely more power and, surprisingly, less hiss. Just enough juice to be usable with my T50rp mk3; not super-loud but adequate volume.
- Still has DX220 version of Mango Player with PEQ.

Cons:
- My DX150 now thinks it a DX220. Not really a problem except the DX150's unique (among the DX line afaik) Standard/Full Sound option is gone. I prefer the Full option but appears my system settings were retained even after flashing so, assuming that was saved, should be ok but no way to confirm. Also, Audio settings now show 7 filters (should be 5 for DX150). Only way to change the actual 5 filters is in the stock Mango app.

- Mango Player (DX220 version) PEQ now lowers the volume when enabled just like the regular EQ. This didn't happen on Fidelizer 1.12 and was one advantage when dealing with AMP9's low output. Now with the extra power, there's little reason not to use the stock DX150 Mango Player.

Soundwise, hard to say if or how much anything has improved after iBasso's latest tweaks plus I hadn't used my DX150 for a short while. I already preferred Fidelizer's sound over other ROMS but am interested to see if Lurker can get a stable Mango OS onto the DX150 in his next update. Fidelizer 1.13 does show the option for Mango OS when rebooting the player but it just restarts into Android.

I'm currently running latest Fidelizer Purist (DX220 port) on my DX150. Can I install @Lurker0 addon to get google play support? and if yes should I install the DX150 addon or DX220?

Here is a questions (hopefully not too far off topic): When I start my DX150, the Mango player auto launches and displays the last album I played on the screen. I don't use the Mango player anymore, I use Poweramp. The small black circle to launch Poweramp is nearly obscured by the Mango player album art. Is there a way to stop Mango player from launching at startup? Or better yet, automatically launch Poweramp at startup? I have Android 8.1 running.

TIA!

There is no easy auto-launch option in Android. What you see is Mango widget on the desktop. Long tap it to remove, as any other widget.

Use Lurker addon to disable Mango.

You can use app like OnStart to launch app on startup

Use DX150 addon.

Thanks! I can't actually remove the app, but I can move it to the other screen, and that takes care of my problem.

@Paul - iBasso what happened to the DX150 firmware update to enable low/high gain with AMP9?

DX220 got the update nearly a month ago but nothing for the lowly DX150 or even the DX200.

Can someone give an advice if its worth buying Amp 8 if i have Fiio A5? I mean the difference between:

Ibasso DX150 + Fiio A5 + Fiio FH7 and Ibasso DX150 + Amp 8 + Fiio FH7

I will hear some sound improvement with Amp 8? Sound quality not just power?? And power and dont know reallly, as Fiio A5 has like 8V Rms output.

what headphones are you using? Generally DX150 + AMP8 would be more convenient but since you have the A5 I don't think buying AMP8 is worth it.
AMP8 does improve the sound quality but not by much IMO.

I have Fiio FH 7 from my cousin to try them because i want to buy FH 7 ..or T800.I am in between.FH 7 with extra power from A5 and with that little bass bost button activated, sound really good but not with all songs.Some songs don't need extra bass.I think i like a more reference sound.I don't know if its in my mind but it seems that some details are lost when i listen with DX150+A5.It has more power witch i like but lose details.Because of this i think to buy Amp 8 and 4.4 mm cable ..and FH7.To much to buy ??
Until now i only listen with my V-Moda Crossfade wirless and are not at FH 7 level.But i think that are decent headphones.The only iem i have is Sennheiser ie6 and they are like 10 years old now.I use them much with my phone, a Meizu Pro 5.
Decisions to take ..
Sorry for my trash english
