Clix Firmware (2GB & 4GB)

Always remember to back up your player's content before automatic or manual update!

There are two ways to update your Clix's firmware.

Automatic update

For automatic update of your player's firmware, download and save the MTP Firmware Updater Utility (the most recent version is 2.2.0.0) from this site. Then unzip the downloaded archive and run the file called iriverFirmwareUpdater.exe.

Connect you player to the computer and the Update Utility will automatically detect which type of player you have connected. Next the utility will automatically determine the current firmware version on your player, and what version of the firmware the Utility will be installing.

If you already have the latest version of the Firmware, you have the option to Recover the current version of the firmware. Press "Update" or "Recovery" to continue with the firmware Installation. The computer must be connected to the internet during this step. The Update Utility will go out and download the latest version of the firmware for your player.

Once the firmware has been downloaded from the Internet. Your player may need to be formatted to install the latest firmware. Press "Next" to continue or "Cancel" to abort the format / firmware installation. If you get this prompt. At this step format is highly recommended.To complete the installation of the firmware, disconnect your player from the computer. Your player may turn itself off and restart a couple of times during the installation of the firmware.

Manual update

First of all download the lastest firmware from this site. Once you have the firmware file properly downloaded, unzip it.

Plug in your device and open My Computer. Then open the Clix, and if you have WMP10 installed, open the data folder (with WMP11 installed, open the root storage). Copy the hex file that you unzipped into this folder and inplug your device.

After the firmware update has completed, format your device and transfer your content back to it.

Only thing I would add is if you use the auto updater and it has trouble finding your device, try removing any USb device that shows up as a storage volume.

Really? Why's that? I actually think that the 2.01 firmware is very good (compared to the 1.11 one my Clix 2G came with)

Well, i don't know if the issue is with the Clix or the firmware, but my 4GB Clix seems to lag a lot on flash, whether it be lite 1.1, lite 2.0, or a regular flash file, they all seem to lag. Is that hardware or firmware doing that, and does it happen on the U10?

If I had to guess about that particular problem, and having into account that Flash animation make heavy use of vector graphics, I think the problem for the sluggish Flash playback is due more to CPU problems than anything else. The CPU on the Clix (albeit faster than the U10) seems to not be quite powerful enough for some "heavy" animations. I'm unfamiliar with the ARM architecture, so I'm not sure where to point the fingers at (the hardware, or the firmware not being optimized enough... though that's hardly it, as mostly firmware is written in assembly).

Yeah.. not a huge problem... maybe they could over clock the CPU and allow 24 fps video.. although that could be very dangerous territory.. it still might be possible. Not complaining about the pretty smooth 15fps videos.

Well, not an issue about video as such, but having into account vector graphics squeeze quite a bit of floating point juice... Also FLAC support should add to conserving battery (I know, completely unrelated) as it uses integer math instead of floating piont (OGG/MP3/WMA), not to mention the whole MPEG video decoding...

Indeed, local iriver offices usually bring user feedback to iriver Korea, etc, etc... Also I hear that some folks from irivier (America, I assume) regularly check Mistic River and maybe these forums too.

^Yes, they do (trust me on that). You can say folks @ iriver do see MR (and likely here) to be a source of user's feedback for future DAP development and firmware update,

What sort of feedback are you looking for? Keep in mind that most (not all) of the issues I see reported are feature requests rather then actual bugs in the firmware.

Does not behave as designed: Bug
Behaves as designed: Feature Request

I would expect them to take all of the feature requests they see and implement the ones they feel are the most important in the next gen product. The bugs should be candidates for firmware updates.

Remember that firmware (software) design is part of the cost of a product. iriver has a track record of giving a few new features in firmware updates, but I wouldn't expect them to give away the milk for free.

(I am aware that many would argue against me on this point, especially those who are involved in the open source community.)
