X3 FIRMWARE - Updated :
Just wanted to let you all know that we received firmware for the X1 and X3 dated 20160530 yesterday. Unfortunately the X1 version has issues. Watches find it very difficult to switch between WiFi and cellular automatically on this new update. I have notified the supplier so that it can be investigated further.
@Lokifish_Marz and @Ciro_Danise I’m posting a link to the X3 update as we discussed yesterday. I already had it in my G Drive so may as well.
There is no official change log for this firmware either. It has a few extra faces but nothing much else. Also because I am uploading it here does NOT mean we are officially supporting it !!. Some tests still show automatic connectivity switching to be an issue. I would say that this is for advanced users only and use at your own risk!
For everyone’s information - I have tested this edition on my D5, X1 and found it to be reasonably stable. I don’t think it’s any better than the last update (so it still has the previous bugs and maybe some new ones) but it’s not going to do any harm to try it. And please report back on your findings. This is the only way we can get feedback for future improvements.
If you don’t want to lose your current apps you should make a backup of USERDATA in SP-Tools before you flash and restore it after flashing and booting the new firmware. I know there are other ways but if you know about them I don’t need to write about them.
I will say this - if you update do not flash the pre-loader. Also only select download mode in SP Tools - don’t want any more IMEI numbers getting wiped !!
As always - backup your current firmware before you do this and also use MTK tool to back up your IMEI - NVram.
If you are unsure about any of this DON’T DO IT until you are !!
