FiiO releases the new firmware for FiiO M6 / FiiO M7 / FiiO M9.

FiiO M6

The following changes and improvements have been made in the new firmware:
1. Added new option to remove the white list app limitation; You can go to “Settings -> General -> About device” and tap 7 times on ‘Kernel version’ to remove the limitation,and then reboot the player. After that you will be able to install any third-party apps;(However, kindly note that the player might act slow if running with too many apps. And some third-party apps may not work properly on the player, in which case you can uninstall them in Settings -> General -> Apps);
2. Added ‘locate currently playing track with one click’ function;
3. Added a new play mode: play single once;
4. Added a new option of viewing the artist/album of the currently playing track in the Now Playing screen;
5. Fixed the issue where the playback would fail in the new version of Amazon Music;
6. Improved the search function (Now when tapping on an album/artist name in the search result, it will direct you to the corresponding list);
7. Miscellaneous bug fixes.

Note: The player might act slow if running with too many apps. And some third-party apps may not work properly on the player, in which case you can uninstall them in Settings -> General -> Apps

    What apps can I install on Fiio M7 after the 1.0.7 firmware upgrade?
    is it any android music player or media player apps?
    Can you recommend any good music player with better function than fiio?

    I’m really dissapointed with Fiio. There’s no much information out there and Fiio’s servers don’t work properly.
    I’ve tried to update my M6 firmware to v1.03 (automatic and manually – both) and just got an error.
    I don’t know how to fix it.

    SOLUCION: Compré un Fiio M9 y un par de días después de encenderlo y probar la reproducción de archivos DSD mediante la memoria decidí activar el TIDAL y ahí empezó el problema, Tidal pedía ser actualizado pero no se podía, Al echarlo a andar haciendo caso omiso de la actualización del Tidal Fallaron tanto el WiFi como el Bluetooth, la “solución” fue ir a Ajustes – General – Aplicaciones Clic la App Tidal y Clic en FORZAR DETENCION. Luego de esto el WiFi y el Bluetooth ya funcionaron con normalidad. Habrá que conformarse con Spotify
