    The newly sold X9s have firmware 2.1.1 but this official Fw can not be found neither on the Homepage or here, what kind of Fw is it, what innovations does it contain and where does it come from or when will it be released.

    Very strange Zidoo approach as the link indeed downloads a brand new V2.1.1 Image firmware.
    The emergency ROM image firmware is meant to recover from failures if everything else fails, so it is a rock-solid proven version typically. Here one is used which is not even released as a beta. :confused:

    Zidoo must have big trust in this firmware to use it for this purpose and also ship new units with it. Probably very safe to use it. I am very puzzled about the why of this approach? Not going to install it myself though as it will wipe everything, prefer to wait for a regular release (but saved me a copy).

    Being a ROM image it is impossible to see if ZidooMusic Player 3.0 is included with it. Maybe it is not and they are waiting to exactly bundle that as everybody is expecting it to come with the next release? It would partially explain it for me. :p

    Still has Music Player 2.0 but at least it doesn't have the annoying pauses that seamless branching 4k movies like Coco had on 2.0.34.

    Usually flash method is use to change some basic things like driver or core component, also other feature like dmr widevine and of course kernel. Maybe not adding lot of software but changing the heart of system.

    We can speculate a lot... Some devices use "universal" firmware, for example my TV use the same firmware for a wide range of model. It would be more easy if they can use such firmware for X and Z family. Just my 2 cents!

    No it is not: This is in the original IMG format without being zipped. It is only slightly bigger than the FW v1.2.3 ROM Image file.
    What I thought without the much expected Zidoo Music Player 3.0 upgrade but a stable image. ;)

    @Sarco They could start doing so by making universal FW per family. Now it is even unique per model.
