[ACTIVE] Upgraded to XIM4Flash-20160104
« on: 09:08 PM - 01/15/16 »
Restored to factory defaults. Said it was already upgraded to the new firmware. Then tried to use manager and it says "connect failure (paired xim4 not found). Getting more and more aggravated.

Anyone know how to fix this? I mean i've tried to restore like 5 times. the phone says - read failed (socket might closed or timeout, read ret:-1)[-1]

What firmware did you restore to? What Manager are you using?

The error message you posted can be shown when trying to run a mismatching manager and firmware. Check out which version of Manager is currently installed by going to your phone settings->apps->xim4 manager. The version number will be below the app name and will start with 4.00

On all platforms, whenever you do a factory restore you are required to unpair and re pair. In some cases you may need to do go over the re pairing steps that require a bit more than that.

Bluetooth Re-Pairing: If you need to re-pair after a Restore Factory Defaults of your XIM4, then please follow these steps to ensure your XIM4 is completely unpaired from your Manager device before attempting to re-pair:

  • Windows: Remove "XIM4" pairing from your Bluetooth Devices list and reboot.
  • Android: Remove "XIM4" pairing from your Bluetooth Devices list. Go to Settings -> Apps then All-Running apps list and select "Bluetooth Service". Force stop it and Clear Data and Clear Cache. Then reboot.
  • Android Marshmallow: Remove "XIM4" pairing from your Bluetooth Devices list. Go to Settings -> Apps then click the menu button in the top right corner and select "Show System". Find and select "Bluetooth Share" from the list. Select "Storage". Force stop it and Clear Data and Clear Cache. Then reboot.
  • iOS: No extra steps need to be taken.


Do the above on both platforms. Back to your Android issue, the Manager listed in the play store is 1114, which is the latest gold version and not compatible with your current firmware. Uninstall your current XIM4 Manger and download the 104 Manager apk and install it.

The PC is hardwired to the XIM no BT involved. This is straight connection. I was just going to get the games i wanted and mess with sensi on the controller by pressing start and back....it wont pair in a wired connection.

Oh, got it. You are pressing the P button during the startup light sequence and then connecting to Manager?

Holding P puts it into programming mode, this is the mode required to update the firmware or restore to factory defaults.

To use manager in wired mode don't hold P. Plug it in normally and during the start up light sequence press and release P, the light sequence will be interrupted and then breath the config color. At this point you should be able to open Manager and connect.

Good to hear, I'm glad you're up and running. You may not have to worry about updating again anytime soon, 0104 may be the next gold build.

With 0104? Yes but you should use the stereo adapter instead. The quality is noticeably worse using the built in 3.5mm port. This isn't a XIM issue. The stereo adapter is just capable of better quality. You also can separate game volume from chat volume with the stereo adapter, which is nice.
