Standard and Carplay skinpacks 15/03/2015 Update available for fw 1.7.9-->1.10.9 (fixed......and updated to 19/03/2015)

Another update is ready in my skinpacks folders.
I have fixed some bugs in the Carplay version and ported all the features and functions to the "Standard" (let's call it in this way for now) skinpack with "ElectricBlue" and "DarkRed" aka Skin3 and skin4.





The Changelog is this:
19.03.2015
- Fixed Skins Icons Hightlight Borders in skinmanager
- Fixed "Cancel" button in Personal String selection
- Radio Editor now save station buttons in all installed skins
- Fixed Skin1 switch      
- Fixed skin1 and skin5 install error in installed skinmanager
15.03.2015
- Added full support for fw 1.10.9
- Fixed Opera button that wasn't working after patch
- Radio editor require patching first
- Fixed DVR missing strings when patched
- Fixed some bugs all over, too many to tell...

Essentially we need to be sure that when you run the radio editor the system is already patched, so now you will be prompted to do it if you didn't.

Applying the patch mean to replace all the executables of the system with a patched version that allow the use of unencritped strings, these strings will be modified when saving the station names by the radio editor.

When you remove the patch the system wil be restored to its original executables and its original strings, meaning that you'll loose your saved 6 buttons and if you patch again you'll have to run the editor again too.

The applied patch is taken from the latest firmware 1.10.9 so even if you ahve 1.8.9, after the patch your system will be updated to 1.10.9.
In fw 1.10.9 roadnav have added one more "Opera Mini" folder in which they have just changed the exe and one dll. Skinmanager will take care, when patching, of replacing the needed files to have it running, even if you are using opera10.


The skinpack for firmware 1.7.9 will come during this week.

Enjoy for now

UPDATE 17/03:  The skinpacks for firmware 1.7.9 are available now
UPDATE 18/03: I have fixed a small bug that won't allow to switch to skin1 and skin5 from installed skinmanager
UPDATE 19/03: More bugs fixed

    1. Delete the old skinmanager folder from your sd card and put the new one in it.
      If you had the first version of carplay named skin3, you should uninstall it from skintool. Otherwise go in skintool and select "install/update" and update skin 5.

  2. Hi Marco, I've installed the latest carplay 15.03.2015 for 1.7.9 and installed patch, I've edited the Radio buttons.
    The buttons show up ok in carplay radio with my edited names but they don't work when I press them.

    Should I maybe use the fake ID option or have I missed something?

    Thanks

    4. Hi I've got it working (yeahhh).
      I tried everything including defaulting the S100, finally I re-flashed V1.7.9.18 - then flashed Carplay and the radio buttons now work really well.

      I love it...

      Thanks -- Doug

    5. Just a thought, could you fit 6 more buttons on the RDS screen?

      :-)

    6. 6 more stations?
      I'll ask...

    7. Sorry - yes I mean station buttons.
      These buttons make it so much easier to use the radio without crashing the car :-)

    1. Please download the skinpack again, delete the skinmanager folder you have on your sdcard, extract the skinpack again on sdcard and try again with skinmanager to install skin5.
      If it still don't work, go in skintool, select "instal/update" and install skin5

  4. Installata la Carplay 15.03.2105 fw 1.7.9, nessun problema a parte la tastiera che compare quando usi il "Radio editor", da me copriva tutto lo schermo, รจ stato sufficiente abbassarla per scoprire la finestra sotto.
    Grande KoTiX! Hai reso onore alla S100!

  10. Hi Kotix,

    I have tried today edit radio.db file without any problems. I have then copied the file into S100PROGRAM folder. Unfortunately I still see old records in Radio and Radio Station Editor applications - new file exists in the system but it appears that it hasn't change anything.

    Are radio data written somewhere else? Where does Radio Station Editor store names and button numbers of stations?

    Thx in advance. mikrus10

    1. Radio editor save the buttons names in the string file of your language and in the same time it create a file radio_pl.txt where it saves the numbers and frequencies.
      Radio.db is used by the original software to save the stations names but the radio stations frequencies are stored somewhere else, probably in mcu.

      Delete
  11. ok. thanks for info.
    I have managed this. radio.db saves both name and frequency of stations. The structure of the table in the database is "id (number), freq (string) and name (string).

  12. Hello,
    How to make the station buttons functional? Pressing it has no result, neither the selected station is marked. To select station I still have to switch to list view.
    It would be very convenient if buttons show selected station preset.

    1. You need to run radio editor from the tools>apps section
      Once you assign a button to each station they will work.

    2. KoTiX, tkanks for help, I will try tomorrow.
      I have one more question: my s100 device almost always autostarts navigation programm on boot, how can I disable this?

      Delete
  13. OK, it works! :-) Tkanks once again for the help. The only feature lacking now is marked selected button. Anyway, radio skin looks and works great :-)
    What about this undesired autostart of navi program from SD card on boot? Is there any way to disable this?

  14. Hey Kotix,

    i have got a wish/question for the Radio Station Buttons, but maybe you have this already on your roadmap.

    Is it possible to higlight the actually selected Radio Station? I want to see which station i have currently in focus...
    i hope you know what i mean :-)

    thanks

    3. Hey,

      are there a news about the feasibility?

      thx

    4. Hi, I tryed but it doesn't work , I can only change color of the button string :(

      Delete
  15. If you you mean that the name (string) of the actual selected station will be changed to e.g. red/green/whatever, than it would be enough and great :-D
    Only colour, or size too?

    thx

  16. Problem: When I use the radio and change band from FM to AM it changes bands but still shows the FM frequency range.

    Request: Allow editing of stations in the list of stations.Enable deleting of stations I don't listen to.

    Rewuest: Enable the radio station buttons to be set to the current frequency when held down, sinilar to any standard car radio.

    Thanks
