    I downloaded the file for the USB update in this thread but it did not work. I am using a MacBook Pro. Are these links and files exclusively for Windows. I did not see a zip file at all in the folder I downloaded.
    I am running 1.6 and my unit says I am up-to-date. I know it is a rolling update for the online version but everyone wants the new updates like 1.75 ASAP.

    No, the firmware file is not exclusive to Windows. I’m not a Mac user but I think that Mac OS automatically extracts the contents of the ZIP when it downloads it. You need the actual original ZIP file copied to the root of an empty USB drive.

    Is there a download link for firmware 1.1.75? Because it's not appearing on my unit as an online update.

    Sorry, no download link this time, there’s not even a thread for it. Perhaps it’s considered a minor update.

    They usually push the firmware in stages, but it’s been a few days now. @mirror I’m seeing a few reports now that their A6 says up to date with the old firmware, what do you think?

    The list of fixes in the current OTA update was fairly minimal.

    I'm half expecting another, more hefty update over the next week or so.

    It probably was specifically made to get the Roon status updated. Maybe it was even part of the dialog with Roon?

    Yes expect a bigger update too, but also the Zidoo RTD1619BPD launch eats up resources.
    Those zero hour problems need a fix also.

    Success with the Update to 1.1.70! For you Mac users: It is correct that the Mac OS X automatically unzips the file which makes it useless. So I used my iPad and iOS did not do that! So I used a USB A to USB C dongle and tried. At first the unit rejected it (ugh) but I went back and everything was fine. Thank you guys again for all the support. Your suggestion hit the nail on the head. Especially Ammar.

    It’s possible that Zidoo has purposely stopped the OTA update for v1.1.75 for now, to avoid users updating twice in a few days. If so new big firmware update is coming any day now please hold on to your seat.

    Just go to the general tab in Safari settings and uncheck "Open "safe" files after downloading", and macOS won't automatically unzip the files anymore.

    Hi @mirror , I think most of us are already anxious for the next firmware update. As the days go by more and more issues and features requested you got to have a cut-off somewhere.

    It's feeling longer than previous update, because we don't feel like the small changelogs in v1.1.75 count (although important to rectify the Roon Ready fiasco), there's not even an official thread for it.

    So I hope the next firmware update will be a big one! Any idea on the estimated time of arrival?

    Better to test things properly than rush out a buggy release. This is still a very new bit of kit, and there have been several firmware updates in just a couple of months.

    But Firmware Updates are always manual Updates? Aren't they?

    When did I tell them to rush? Just expressing ny excitement, I’ve owned a Zidoo product for many years I know how careful they are.

    OTA is automatic, pushed by Eversolo, which also decides the update schedule for the target units. File upload is manual, performed by the end user, generally to fix urgent specific issues.

    Does anyone know why music streaming apps(Qobuz) won’t open from iPad or iPhone using the Eversolo controller app? Opens using my Samsung tablet. Cast works on both as long as you don’t mind the volume control being cut off by 95% on the screen.

    RichM, I have the same problem. Qobuz doesn’t open from iPad and iPhone using the Eversolo controller app. It started to work for a few days last month, and since then I've been systematically getting a spinning wheel, and nothing else. I've tried everything: resetting to zero, restarting, and so on. On the other hand, from my Android devices, it works perfectly.

    Under Menu, Settings tap About. You will see that 1.1.75 is pushed automatically by Zidoo.

    Thanks for the reply, it’s disappointing that basic functionality is so problematic.

    Is 1.1.75 the latest firmware?
