element X Streamer Combo Firmware Update Guide

element X has been released for a while, with the help of the first users and the beta members in China, the firmware of element X and MA Remote have been refined. Recently, we released the first major update of this product, which includes ARM firmware and MCU firmware, as well as the mobile app MA Remote.


The reason why we think this update is 'major', is this update supports ROON, and improved NAS support. What's even more exciting is that MATRIX has innovatively added the 'dual system' into element X. If a user accidentally interrupts the firmware upgrade, the backup system ensures element X can work normally.
