New firmware package has been announced for FiiO - M3 portable music player, namely FW1.9 which fixes issues with the player, UI operation and many more.

The new update adds support for fast forward/rewind through in-line control, problem while playing WAV tracks, control button bug and many other issues..

FiiO - M3 Please ensure that the M3 is adequately charged, preferably fully charged, before updating the firmware, to prevent loss of power during the update.

You can only enter the settings menu and the firmware update option by holding the menu button from the Now Playing screen. Therefore, please load the M3 with at least one song and play a song before attempting to update the M3.
Extract and copy M3.hex to the root directory of the internal storage of the M3.  While playing a song on the M3, in the Now Playing screen, hold the menu button to open the shortcuts menu, choose and select the cog icon at the bottom, choose "Auto upgrade" at the end of the System settings menu and select it to update the firmware. The M3 will update its firmware and then reboot.

Carefully follow all steps described above, and enjoy your newly improved device.  

If the update process fails, please change to use a blank micro SD card and directly format it by M3 before upgrading again.
