Hi there,

This is an exciting news!

There are no stability related updates? Freezes will continue to occur?

Just some points after first view:

  • Update finished after only some minutes with no faults, all user settings retained
  • Capacity display of the SSD is very good
  • Media scanning seems to be much faster now
  • Additional information on playback screen looks good
  • Playlist within the app can not be edited any more and shows only one track
  • Continued missing cover art on the device’s screen - but all showed in the App

When will you update RoseConnect Premium for IOS to Ver

When can we expect the PC Version to be upgraded to V4.0?

Just updated and performed media scanning, which still took hours (I have currently about 800GB of music on the internal SSD).

Unfortunately no improvement on the way the Rose software handles FLAC file information (with no distinction between files ripped on the Rose and/or files ripped carefully/correctly elsewhere and then transferred to RoseDisk), so a good chunk of my music collection still appears full of errors and - even - some albums have been saved as split in two parts…!

This happens more often when there’s a hyphen/accent/symbol/different character in either album/artist/song info.

It’s a minefield, so - until Rose will hopefully fix this as well as allowing Rose customers to edit/delete files - I will have to stop ripping CDs or transfer files to SSD as I am rather tired and annoyed with errors that keep showing up.

It’s a shame as the music sounds so good.

That’s very annoying, I can understand your disappointment. I’ll try media scanning again to verify my statement.

@admin @ROSELOA My RS250 couldn’t download the update (the status bar went to ~10% then went back to 0% again). Is “release.roseaudio.kr:2300” the correct OTA URL? Please provide Google Drive link for manual update. Thanks!

Still one hour to scan 6.000 tracks :slightly_frowning_face:

The same for me.
@ROSELOA , any way to download update file on PC and flash it to the RS150?

I’ve downloaded the new update for the RS250. I have no internal storage to use, so it installed quite quickly.

Two things:

  1. The email telling me that there was an update (on the RS250) was in Korean.
  2. The volume increase button for the inputs or service (example would be Opt/Coax or Tidal) does not work. I increased it to its highest setting and the sound level was the same.

Firmware files were provided thru Google Drive for last update ([RS150/RS201/RS250] [OTA] SW Ver 3.8(Rose 3.8.11) OTA Release)
I guess we just have to wait patiently :smiley:

If is any consolation, I have had no issue with installing 4.0 on my RS150.

One thing I noticed and which I was pretty fond of is the time/clock been displayed on the top left hand side corner of the unit front panel display (as seen from this image shared by Rose, which shows 02:26 AM).

After 4.0 had been installed, this has now disappeared. Please bring back?

OTA update finally worked after several attempts :+1:

Finally done with cell phone connection sharing.
For information, OTA update does not handle wifi/adsl errors and restart from the beginning each time one occurs. As cell phones have errors corrections on 4G/5G, shared wifi is more stable.

I don’t think that’s the problem because I use wired ethernet. Perhaps their server had some issues which were resolved now.

Hello @alessandro ,

I checked your issue with strange alphabets, and could find something is wrong.

When Spanish alphabets are in Album name or artists, strange symbols appeared.

I really wanted to include it in this update, but I couldn’t put it in this patch because of various languages and symbols. Also working on other issues as well. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Hello @luxury_scruff ,

  1. Would you let me know your ROSE ID?
    (RS250 > Settings > ROSE ID)
  2. Would you let me know where’s your region?
  3. Would you check if Pre-out level setting is ‘ON’?
    (RS250 > IN/OUT Setting > menu on OUTPUT setting > Preout level setting)

Unable to download 4.0 update on Rose rs150b.
