Will my XIM4 receive any more firmware updates?
« on: 01:38 AM - 03/05/21 »
Hey,
since the last XIM4 firmware is from 2020, I was wondering if the XIM4 is "EOL" or still active supported.
Will there be any more firmware updates (for PS5, etc) coming out in the near future?

Best regards,
Paddy
Model: XIM4
Current firmware: 4.00.20170103

Production of the XIM4 ended when the XIM Apex was released in January 2018. It is still supported by Ximtech although firmware updates are rare: it does not have as much memory capacity as the Apex so has limited upgrade ability. Details can be found in the XIM4 Support FAQ.

All new game Smart Translators are designed to work on the 4 and the Apex.

Where's HL3?

XIM Apex, PS4 Pro, 1TB Crucial MX500, Redragon K585, Swiftpoint Z, Aorus AMP500, Audio Technica ADG1X, SB X7, LG 27UD58.

MSI Z97i Gaming AC, Core i5 4690k, Corsair H100i, RTX 2070, 16GB Corsair Vengence DDR3, XFX ProSeries 750w, 3xAerocool Dead Silence, Cooltek W1, 2x500GB Samsung Evo SSDs, 1TB Crucial MX500 SSD, 1TB WD HDD, Silverstone SST slot-load DVD, KustomPC braided cables. And if you've read this far, you too are a genuine geek, my friend!

There will be another update coming soon as we are working to have XIM4, XIM APEX, and our future products all use the same game database format. XIM4 will be receiving a small firmware update and a large Manager update.

Do you mean the problem when not having a mouse connected/using a USB switch? If so, yes, that's fixed in the next firmware update.

No. It will be updated to use the new XIM "universal" games database system and also XIM4 Manager will have a minor UI refresh along with comply with latest app store requirements.

That's coming soon (likely in a few weeks) -- and a minor UI refresh for XIM4 Manager.

Will it be possible to use the current settings after the update?

Because I prefer the ST of XIM4 than XIM APEX

XIM4 and XIM APEX STs are exactly the same and have been since APEX’s launch.
