The beta firmware version FW3.1.6_beta for the X7(Android 5.1) is now available!

Kindly note that this is a beta version and might not be stable enough compared to the stable versions. So please think carefully before upgrading with this firmware.

If you have already upgraded the X7's firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, you can download the OTA firmware package, transfer it to the X7 or micro SD card, and upgrade manually through the Technical support app on the X7.
Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qdf3xy59sm6vy9w/X7-ota-3.1.6.zip?dl=0
>>How to upgrade    (see method 2: Manual update via update zip file)

If you have not yet upgraded the firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, please download the X7 firmware upgrade tool package and use the upgrade tool to upgrade the firmware.
Download link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/eztj92p9kkpnizs/X7%20Firmware%20Upgrade%20Tool%20with%20FW3.1.6_beta.zip?dl=0
>> How to upgrade

You can post in this thread if you have any issues with this version. But if you encounter serious problems, you may consider flashing back to a stable release.
Download link for stable firmware FW2.0:  X7 Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW2.0 (>>backup download link)


The following changes and improvements have been made to FW3.1.6beta compared to FW3.1.5beta:
1. Added option to auto-match/manually search for lyrics & album art (the auto-match function can be enabled in FiiO Music->Settings->Auto-match lyrics & album art; and to manually search, you can directly click on the lyrics screen if there're no lyrics available or click the Functions icon at the lower right of the lyrics screen then select "Search");
2. Added option to display the songs by album under the Genre category (you can click the mode icon below the guitar-like Genre category icon to switch the display method)
3. Added ON/OFF switch for lockscreen album art display (FiiO Music->Settings->Lockscreen album art);
4. Updated the UI of ViPER Effect;
5. Fixed issue where the state (Play/Pause) of the play control bar in the lockscreen would not change in accordance with the music playback state;
6. Improved the display of album art in lockscreen;
7. Improved issue where the titles of some tracks were displayed incorrectly;
8. Miscellaneous bug fixes.


Notes:

1. Regarding the Auto-match/manually search for lyrics & album art:

a) The lyrics and album art files will be downloaded to the same directory of the corresponding song by default.
b) The album art can only be downloaded along with the lyrics. So the following will happen when the auto-match function is enabled: if the song already has album art but has no lyrics, the player will only download the lyrics; if the song has neither lyrics nor album art, the player will download both of them; but if the song already has lyrics but has no album art, the player will not download anything, and you need to first manually search for lyrics and use it, then the album art will be downloaded.
c) Currently the lyrics and album art are searched by the track title and album name. So if the track's title or album name has got prefix/suffix (such as "01", "Bonus", "Deluxe version"), you need to manually remove these characters before searching.
d) If the auto-matched lyrics are incorrect, you can search for them manually then use it to replace the incorrect one. Or you can delete the incorrect lyrics then re-download it.


2. As for the issue of some song title displaying incorrectly, please inform us the completed song titles or send one or two songs to us (support@fiio.net) for testing. It will be more helpful for us to fix this issue.
(At present, we found the single special character can display normally, but abnormally when some of them are combined as a word. )

Hello! Is it possible to change in future updates option /system/build.prop ro.fiio.disable_media = true change to ro.fiio.disable_media = false
?

With the option ro.fiio.disable_media = true - many other applications do not see music files!

Hi all,

I have 3 questions about possible future improvements and 1 about a general topic:

1. Could you please tell if the use of the X7 as External DAC for MacOs will be implemented? (still keeps deconnecting again and again or even not connecting at all...)
2. The issue faced with FW 2.0 using K5 is still not corrected (linked to 1 I guess - Use as external DAC).  Do you know if something is coming?
3.  It is not possible to use the OTG USB output of the X7 for connection to a chord Mojo.  is there any possibility to fix it in a future update or is it hardware related (sorry for the dummy question)?
4. general topic : I still does not catch why certain third party applications does not sounds good using the X7, while other does (ex: JetAudio=worst vs PowerAmp=better vs Fiio Music App=Best )

Whatever, many thanks for the great job!

Come on Fiio you said before the Chinese New Year that you fixed the scan issue yet you still haven't released the fix.  This is really starting to get old and I'm now questioning whether or not I'll purchase any future fiio products.

Hi,

1/ I've some problems with album's artworks. When many artists have same album's name ("Greatests hits" for example) they all have the same artwork, i don't know how, maybe the first on the list give his artwork to the rest.

2/ When the left panel is open in order to navigate into the album during the play, and you skip a track, the track in green doesn't change, you have to close and re open the left panel

Hi all,

I have 3 questions about possible future improvements and 1 about a general topic:

I use the X7 with 3.1.x on it as a DAC on my macpro for several hours a day docked in a K5.

I had some issues with earlier betas but it's been pretty solid for a while.

Are you on the latest OSX?  Older versions gave me more trouble than newer ones.

Still seeing Chinese charachters in artist's names and other titles. No scanning issues. All album images showing. Slide to unlock now shows correctly on lock screen with album art. Good job. Thanks.

Hi all,

I have 3 questions about possible future improvements and 1 about a general topic:

Hi,

I still have the same problem than you with the USB DAC for MacOS with my early 2011 Macbook (OS 10.12.3). But i just tried with my wife's mid 2012 macbook (OS 10.12.3) and it works ! I've searched the differences between the two laptops and i found that my macbook has USB 2.0 ports and my wife's has USB 3.0 !
Fiio could you please investigate this point ?

Thanks !

Hi MisterC925,

MacOS version is 10.12.3 (16D32).  This is the latest to date. But...  I use it with a mid 2010 27" iMac.
Seems it could be related to what jmdjer noticed.  So, my two pence would be : this could be related to the USB controller generation and the linked "drivers".
What is really annoying... It was working pretty fine with FW 1.8.  This means there could be a way to fix it.  Don't worry, I know I am using a beta.

Hi jmdjer,

Was wondering the same (USB 2.0/USB 3.0).  But it was working fine with FW 1.8 (even through the K5 docking station).
As I told MisterC925, it could be related to the handling by the USB Controller.  Maybe some kind of power limit issue knowing the signal is transported using one part of the total available current.  And it is limited to max 500 mA with a baseline of 100 mA on USB 2.0.
USB 3.0 allows to share up to 900 mA with a baseline of 150 mA...  And even up to 1500 mA, but no data could then be exchanged.

Just tried the lyrics feature. It's awesome! It seems some lyrics are even formatted so they  show up in karaoke style, highlighting whats being sung right now. Others are just plain text u need to scroll yourself. Wonder what makes the difference?

Same for bluetooth, here.  No VU meter.

And still some issue  to display european accentuated letters or letter groups like "î" "ê" "èm" "ém" "è" "ö".  Some other are fixed.  Thanks for the job performed!

For the european accentuated letters and the others....
I think it's simpler not to use them.

Things so far are good with this firmware.  Couple questions.  

1. If I am missing artwork and the music does not have lyrics is there a way to get the missing artwork?
2. I have tried to use the DLNA function.  I can play music if it is in an MP3 format.  But if my music is in a FLAC format I can navigate to the musics folder and get to the album.  But once selected the album I cannot see the tracks let alone play them.  I have several dlna servers and they all behave the same.  Is this a bug in the dlna play function?

And lastly a feature requests.  

1. It would be great if the font sizes could be increased.  In particular the artist and album listings.  I had an iBasso DX80 which has the same screen as the X7 and they did a great job of this.  Very easy to read.  Ill add I evaluated the X7 and DX80 and kept the X7..  It just sounded much better

2. When sorting by Genre its an improvement that I can go Genre - Album.  But it would be really nice to go Genre - Artist - Album.  Any chance to add that??

3.  And lastly on the Recently Added section any chance to be able to list by album and then tracks?

Thanks for the efforts.
