Cyrus don’t want screw ups who then blame cyrus in forums like this


Have you watched the video?
Its easier than replace a smartphone display.
Agree there are a lot of guys out there thinking they can achieve anything and then screw up...
And then to blame the Company is stupid. Sure...

To your (defence) point of Cyrus:
well if they would care what we talk here they would need an employee to be in forums like this to make the companies point....
I would do this upgrade within 10 min.... ...I'm a technician... but now be forced to transport my expensive stuff through Europe. TWICE.

But a smartphone does not have mains voltages inside. Which a DAC could if the user left the mains cable plugged in or didn't allow time for the capacitors to leak their charge. And that's why Cyrus didn't allow users to update the software in their earlier streamers as you had to plug a computer into a mini USB socket on the inside to perform part of the update. It'll be a health and safety issue.

The video shows QX upgrade not QRX. The process may be similar but a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!
I think in this instance Cyrus have got it right. As I understand it the upgrade gets a 2 year guarantee but that only applies to the card & not the device as a whole.

Also you loose your warranty if you change the screen on your mobile. I wasn't aware you could pop into your Apple Store or Sony Centre and pick up a replacement screen for an IPhone X or Xperia 10?
