Honestly, I Don't know Jack Squat about the X5
However, I do Know about Recording with Rockbox, and this is my answer to your question:

The Recording Function of Rockbox is FAR from complete. It Hardly Records, and it's pretty buggy. (Don't bother with other Mics. That "very Faint" signal you got is the best your gonna get. Consider yourself lucky, though. Recording froze my ipod once)

Is there any way to use the X5 line in jack as an external stereo mic

on the recording?
I'm trying it with a pair of unpowered stereo mics, and I do get a
signal but it's very very faint.
 What I'm saying here, is that You basically can't record on Rockbox, or you shouldn't depend on it. I appreciate you asking my opinion (people asking ME for help. Who woulda Thought!?), but unfortunatly, a better mic most likely won't help.
