FiiO has announced the availability of a new firmware package developed for its X1 2nd Gen portable music player, namely version FW1.5.3, which fixes issues with the player such as Bluetooth connectivity, Miscellaneous bug fixes and much more.

The new update fixes issues with hidden files stored by a Mac, OS computer accessing the micro card, bit depth wrongly displayed, system crash, incorrect display of albums or artist names, changes in the priority level for PO/LO and Bluetooth output, shuffle playing all the songs and many other issues.

You enjoy added features wherein your player displays the title of the track under Category after updated media lib, displays the CDs in the sequence of its name under Album,  allows scroll wheel press function and added support for playing through categories.

When it comes to installation, first make sure that the player’s battery is fully charged to prevent power failure. Save and unzip the downloadable archive, and transfer the “ X1II.fw” file onto an FAT32-formatted microSD memory card.

Afterwards, connect the card to the X1 2nd Gen unit, turn the device on while holding “Shortcuts” key (the key to the upper left of the touch wheel), and wait patiently as the player does its work. Once that is completed, the X1 2nd gen will restart automatically.

Bear in mind that, during the installation, you must not use any of the device’s buttons, or remove its battery/SD card. Please delete the X1II.fw file from the micro SD card and update the media library again after the update is complete.

That said, 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 with capacity under 32GB, and directly format it by the X1 2nd Gen before upgrading again.
