    I’ll give it a try and let you know. By chance, I have all of the above for today as well as the Fiio m5, which I will also try.

    Ok, bad news. The cipher/anker combo does NOT work with either the shanling m0 or the Fiio m5.

    Hey, what is different from this custom firmware?

    Thanks for the good work!
  4. XVortex
    changes are written in the readme inside archive
  5. Tiax
    And people need to download it just to read your readme?
    Would it kill you to post it yourself?
  6. Nailgun
    That's what I was asking previously. I downloaded it BTW (and found out I don't need it, I only care about gapless now. thanks for your work tho)

    The readme.txt inside the zip says: (I hope its ok to post the text in here. If there's a problem I´ll edit the post)

    Shanling M1 custom firmware v3.0 by Vortex & aleXmod

    - Highly optimized graphics, font and binaries for maximum speed;
    - English, Czech and Russian language strings was corrected/added;
    - Ability to control player EQ and other settings by conf.txt

    This is great, but before flashing custom firmwares into my M0, I´d like to know what "highly optimized graphics" means and what does it look like, it sounds very vague. The major problem I have with this device after some months using it is the font size and the overall GUI design browsing music, the rows are too wide and the space is eaten up by the three dot thing and the general design with the folder or file icon. No one seems to have this problem, so maybe I´m alone in this, but you can only see 3 rows of text and barely two words of text in each row... and I love the overall look and feel of everything else, but you cant really navigate the menus that easily or read whats in the memory card unless you already know what are you going to play and where is it. That would be my only problem with this little wonder, the rest is a compact marvel with a great industrial design sense. Also the EQ is very difficult to manage with touch controls, so the setting conf. idea seems really nice. But again, what does "highly optimized graphics" means and does it change the original look in any way?
    Thanks for the custom firmware effort in any case.

    I asked software team exactly same question when I put new firmware on my M0 and most of my artists disappeared. Apparently they copied this Album Artist setting from some other DAP and didn't check with others in office.

    It should be changed with next firmware release.

    Thanks for pointing this out, will fix it.

    Yes, you can.

    With Airpods, you only need to know one trick: After you used them with phone, you must set volume to 100%, otherwise they will be fixed on lower volume and they will be too quiet with M0.

    We got few reports from people that it doesn't work.

    Gapless still works terribly for me with flac+cua files. Sometimes it can cut half of the song, but usually just a first/last few seconds while song is still going

    That's my problem as well. I love the device but the GUI is really hard to use - I guess they have done the best they can with the size of the screen.

    What I would love is a phone app to control it - at least when playing over wired headphones. Maybe a phone app to connect and control via bluetooth when using bluetooth headphones is too much to ask although some devices can handle two simultaneous BT connections.

    It does not work for me either. I believe it is because the operating system is not compatible. I wish @Shanling could figure out a way for this to work, because this would be my goto system also.

    Sorry to bring up old post ...

    I was thinking why not affix female velcro tape behind M0, and male velcro tape on NATO strap or if the NATO strap can stick too female velcro tape ? Anyone try before?
  13. Rafs
    I would go about it differently If you're looking into using it the M0 as a watch. Using the M0 hard case with the clip and a Nylon NATO strap in 22mm width.
    You can place the clip within the watchband rings, the ones separated by around 2cm. it stays there perfectly, then just use the watchband as you would.
    (Actually I was using it with the buckle towards me because i prefer it that way).
    It's a bit tall on the wrist overall but the watch from the lockscreen is in the correct alignment.

    A different way to keep it slim is to just pass the clip on the watchband, clipping on both straps (it grips better).
    However, this way the clock is not correctly aligned. On the bright side, if you were to use it corded the cable is positioned to go up your arm without problems.

    Just a couple ideas.
  14. Nailgun
    Yes please. I checked my entire library multiple times and I still have a lot of albums not showing for some reason. When I switch back to just artist they come back, but it's a mess because of compilations...

    oh my, more work to do on the gapless side. I hope you all can sort everything out. It will make it a really awesome player considering size and price.

    Thanks for your suggestion and idea. I worry the clip will break or becomes brittle over time.

    I do have Shanling M0 sport arm strap with PU casing, may be can modify/shortern the strap becomes wrist strap or totally replaced them with NATO strap.

    Actually my idea of using velcro tape is make M0 as minimalist as itself already too thick :D.

    Here's the Shanling M0 arm strap.
