Cowon O2 Firmware
 
This thread will contain all the previous and present Firmware. I or the Mods will keep this updated.

For now what Firmware is out i cannot determine if their Final or Beta (This will be corrected later on). Also, about Change logs... i cannot read Korean but until one of our members who can read Korean you'll have to wait. All info. will be changed or corrected when needed.

Instillation: Easy, simply Drag'N'Drop or copy the Folder/Files on the O2 ROOT

Note: COWON is now deleting past Firmware Versions from their Servers. please we ask any user to please upload any past Version at SpeedyShare, Mediafire, RapidShare, or MegaUpload

OP notice: there is no difference in Firmware rather it'd be Korean or Global. enjoy using which ever :)

Cowon Global
v1.25

Cowon Korea
v1.25

Cowon Global
1.35

I just updated to 1.11 and here is what i found:
  • -MVK H.264/MP4 H.264 720p content now plays but it suffers from the same issues the A3 had. Video is choppy and unwatchable.
  • +DivX/XviD playback is a bit smoother.
  • -TV out still doesnt work- ive tried Cowon cables and others.
  • +improved touch responsiveness
  • +"multi tasker" shows video playing with an icon at the bottom of the screen. you can actually stop playing a video now.
  • -doenst recognize up and down drags like change log says

need profile info
 
Cool. But again, what is the profile for those 720p encodes? They could have CABCAC and other HP features that will cause the stuttering, including use reference frames. That even causes stuttering on my computer due to how x264 works I guess. Although, the A3 supports at least CABCAC.

If it can play the native res 640x480p or widescreen DVD material of h264 with HP features, I'm sold.

can you please post it thanx :)

Does it improve anything man i want playlist support

dfkt 12-18-2008 07:26 AM

Added 1.17 to the first post and removed the dead links.

It appears the changelog is useless - it said the same things since 1.14.

Thanx dfkt ... i just updated to v 17 touch is much beter and responsive than before and few things have been fixed lets home they fix the problem with playing any x264 playback upon any resolution beside what profile you stated

i been using h264 to avi works best for me atleats for my music videos in hd :)

dfkt are you using your o2 or letting it collect dust ?

dfkt 12-18-2008 06:23 PM

Better? I didn't notice a single important difference between 1.14b, 1.15, and 1.17 - they're all the same crap. Not a single bug or annoyance fixed.

kasrhp 12-31-2008 07:04 AM

I think the touch screen accuracy got a lot better. I hope they can fix the album art blurriness.

revmike 12-31-2008 11:40 AM

Mine isn't blurry. I would check your resolution of the files. I had one or two that were blurry and it was the file itself, not the player. If you put garbage on thats what you're going to get.

dfkt 12-31-2008 11:43 AM

About 1% of my album art looks good, the other 99% are blocky and pixelated. All are of course embedded with the same app, and of similar JPEG quality (ca. 500x500px, single pass, 24bit RGB color space, etc). I don't see a reason why some album art looks ok, but the majority doesn't.

Nujabez 01-13-2009 10:55 AM

There's a new firmware out now 1.19.

FURR 01-14-2009 08:26 PM

dfkt 01-14-2009 08:26 PM

Yup, I updated it... ;)

kasrhp 01-21-2009 06:35 AM

Thats a good start for the updates. I hope that really does wonders for the video codecs. Keep it coming Cowon.

Nujabez 01-21-2009 10:41 AM

it helped a little bit. Some of the videos I couldn't play before or were out of sync in audio are fixed. Its a much better update than the past ones but there's still way more stuff that could be fixed.
