Releasing new Skinpack 15/11/2014!!

I'm releasing today a new version of my skinpack for the S100 units,  updated to suit the new firmware 1.7.9.
In this new firmware there are some changes in the user interface, not very relevant but it's better if you want to use this skinpack to upgrade your unit to this firmware, downloading it from roadnavdotcom.

This is the 15.11.2014 changelog:

- The skins are updated to suit the new firmware 1.7.9

- Many fixes and adjustments in Skinmanager (English is default language now)

- Skin4 is darker now to gain more contrast and its Nitrogen skin is darker too match it

- Some new sections skinned in Skin4: SystemInfo,SettingsGeneral, SettingsLogo,SettingsTime,WorldTime,BTSearch,BTMusic

- Some rework on Skin4 in Radio section.


The skins are independent between model versions, they work almost on every models.
To install the skins you need to:
1. extract the skinpack on the root of a normal SD card
2. set navi path to point to \skinmanager\skinmanager.exe
3. hit the navi button (twice maybe)

Once you install at least one skin, you will have skinmanager installed in the section Tool->Games (or APP) and you can switch skins in about 10 seconds.
Here is a small sample video of the skinmanager in action:




Some pics of the skins:
SKIN 2
SKIN 3
SKIN 4

Some Skin4 screenshots:




































  

Here is the new Skinpack:  Skinpack 15.11.2014.rar
UPDATE: All the skinpack aren't free anymore, to download the skinpack you have to go to this post:


Once the payment is confirmed you will be redirected to the Skinpacks folder where you can find older versions, the curent one  and even the new ones when they will be available.





 
These are the packs included in the folder now:
- Skinpack 12.01.15 for fw 1.7.9
- Skinpack for fw 1.6.9
- SkinPack for fw 1.0.9.0 to 1.6.9
- SkinPack for fw up to 1.18.7

  7. Hi Kotix,
    good to have you back in WinCe working on your skin´s again,... at the moment I ´m using MyDean ( because the original Chinese skin to colored for me) with some modifications done in order to look´s more like OEM... but no music player which show file details...and some more I miss
    in general I like concept very much but a bit to fancy for me,..... do you have plans to create more simple OEM skin in future.... as example... like actual Ford / Lincoln USA Head-Unit´s

    thank you

      I would like to install Skin4, and I ask your permission to modified little bit (put my logo to main menu)? May I do that?
      Thanks before.

    3. If your mods are for your personal use, you can do whatever you like.
      Just please don't release on internet modified versions of my work claiming it's yours, that will not be a good thing.

  8. Hi Kotix,

    I have installed the new skinmanager yesterday evening. I have also installed the "old" Firmware but does have no problems with your skinmanager and skin 4. Only in the radio section under BAND AM text doesn't fit in Mhz Display. I´ve been waiting for the download password from roadnav for my Kia Sportage MY2013 (c074-1) and will test it with the new FW. will gave you response than.
    Regards

    3. Hi Kotix,

      one question again: the showing of RDS Names instead of Frequencies at the Radio Station List, is that doing with your Skin4 or comes it from the FW?

      Delete
    4. It's a part of the new FW. You can see this even if you don't install kotix skins for example.

      Delete
  10. Kotix, great work! I tested with new FW and it's great. The only thing that I would improve is that I would hide the clock when browsing for mp3 folders.

    Can you do this? Otherwise is great!

    P. S.
    I will donate a little something ☺

    1. The file list in the original player is fixed and cannot chang it, I put the clock there becaus ethere was an empty space.

      I don't know if the BT a2dp protocol will transfer infos to the radio but anyway there is nothing in the xml code to show the artist info.

  13. Hi KoTiX.

    I'm new in this world (I've just bought a S100) and I'd like to change the default skin basically because it's not possible to save the favorite station on radio. Can I do this in your skin?

    Another question is about the instalation. I need only to follow your 3 steps at the begining of this blog for my specific S100 (see bellow)?

    OS: S100-UNI.A20140106-A2.1
    APP: S100-V1.1.9.0
    MCU: G00L S00E C006
    Based on WinCE 6.0

    Thank you,

    Andre

    1. Hi Andrè, if you mean to add station buttons in the radio interface, just forget it... it's not possible.
      To install skins follow the 3 steps and select the skin to install.

      Delete
  14. Thank you, KoTiX.
    Actually, I'd like to save my favorite stations and change from one to another directly using my steering wheel button.
    Regards,
    Andre

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Go in radio->list and hold your finger on the number of the station and it will be stored.
      Then you can change them with steering wheel.
      This is the normal way it work undependently from the skins

  15. Ciao kotix,
    scusami se ancora richiedo il tuo aiuto, ma non so come sopperire all'incapacità di rilasciare un firmware funzionante per il c219 s100 da parte di roadnav....il nuovo fw mi si installa ma appare solo schermo nero e le scritte tipo radio navi ecc ecc ma senza skin, su sfondo nero ed inusabile quindi.
    non è che dando uno sguardo qui puoi capire cosa manca?
    Date: November 11, 2014
    File Name: C219.zip 72.8 MB total
    Download link: http://we.tl/GGOljC2EXP
    RN model: C219
    OS: S100-UNI.A20140721-A2.2
    APP: X1-V0.1.52.18
    MCU: TD1C S0X1

    Ho notato che in questo fw mancano 3 cose sicuramente rispetto a quello vecchio funzionante anche se con parecchi bug, ossia un file LCD.ini, un file PlatformAPI.dll e una cartella intera sotto s100 program di nome S100UI oltre a quella S100X1UI che invece c'è (ma in quello vecchio c'erano tutti)
    Te ne sarei grato per poter finalmente provare le tue skin ed evitare di andare in Cina!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sembra che per la tua bmw x1 abbiano fatto una versione speciale di firmware, dove sia l'eseguibile che l'mcu sono totalmente differenti dai soliti.
      Platformapi.dll credo che manchi perchè le stringhe non sono criptate, come nei vecchi firmware.
      S100UI non serve perchè va a guardare la cartella S100x1UI, sono sicuro perchè l'ho provato sullemulatore e lì funziona tutto.
      probabilmente non ti si è copiato tutto dalla sd alla radio.
      Le mie skin non funzioneranno purtroppo perchè sono nella cartella s100UI ed usano cartelle diverse al suo interno. dovresti sostituire anche il platform.exe ma poi di sicuro non andrà qualcos'altro.

      Delete
    2. Ti ringrazio infinitamente per la tua pazienza....oggi stesso hanno ri-aggiornato il fw anche se pesa 64mb invece di 72mb ....poi c'è una nota sotto con scritto "self extracting.exe"
      Quindi non capisco se così vogliono intendere di aggiornare inserendo SD da acceso e "puntando" su un file .exe piuttosto che aggiornare da spenta come di solito

      Delete
    3. Ma no, lo devi estrarre col pc nella sd

  24. Ciao kotix,
    Annosa questione c219....ho fatto "upgrade?" che non ha cambiato nulla a vedersi o a sentirsi ma volevo sapere a parte le skin che evidentemente non posso installare (usando idrive) posso fare update di qualcos'altro tipo: non ho ancora l'elenco stazioni per nome ma per frequenza e le scritte dei nomi stazioni sono molto piccole oltre che appaiono solo quando clicco su rds, ma io vorrei che si vedessero nel riquadro in alto sempre al posto o a fianco all'orario che invece è sempre presente e che comunque ho già nel quadro strumenti. Poi la ricezione radio sempre disturbata. Si può fare qualche modifica funzionale più che estetica?
    Grazie e scusa ancora per le mille domande

    1. Se metti il Fw 1.7.9 avrai l'elenco per stazioni e non per freq.

    2. Mi piacerebbe ma il problema è che tra i firmware il mio c219 è l'unico a non avere versione app 1.7.9 bensì una particolare....posso metterla comunque senza perdere uso joystik ?

    The fontsize of Date and Time beside the Frequency of the actual Radiostation is a little bi too large, How can I change it?
    I Think it is the section "Wektime" and "Time" in the radio.xml File.

I use roadrover emulator but just a few screens work on it, so you'll have to rename the xml to see your results. If you are just starting to learn i suggest you to choose another section like settings, bluetooth or radio.

  35. Hi KoTiX, love the work you've done here on these skins! Was curious if it's possible to tweak the size/display of a few items? The time text in 12-hr mode in particular seems to get cut off whenever it's inside a box. Ideally I'd like to drop the leading zero and am/pm as well (so 9:43 vs 09:43am). There's a few others as well, so perhaps I can email you?
