The people who already have bought my rom but haven't received the gdrive invite, please contact me by mail.

S100 to S150 Conversion

I decided to start selling the software and instructions needed to convert S100 units to S150 but I also want to advise everybody who's willing to do it about some important things:

- once your s100 is converted to S150 you cannot switch back to wince
- android needs more power to run and heat more the cpu, causing sometimes hw failures
- android boot time is 30+ seconds
- in android you have a lot of apps and customizations but wince is more stable and faster

Before buying the conversion software please check if your model is listed here:




If it is present in the list,  your model is supported by android firmware and you can proceed buying the Conversion software.
If it is not present but your unit don't have canbus, it's still possible to convert it but please contact me before buying.

To buy the ROM and/or the conversion software:

Please select your purchase



NOTE: If you buy my ROM, please let me know your Gmail address.

December S100 Skinpack: Opera10 and other fixes... (Fixed 05.12.2015)


This will be the last Skinpack for this year (I guess) and because I started working again on android you won't find many graphical changes but mostly important fixes.
Here is the changelog of this release:


- OperaMini/Opera10 switching fixed definetively
- GPRS Autodial updated from 1.3.5 to 1.4.3
- Fixed a very bad bug in the autoupdate function of SkinManager
- Skinned Manual page in all skins

- Added some more Resources to Skin6 Themer

As there was a bad bug in the autoupdate feature of skinmanager, I recommend to disable the autoupdate function in the settings and update to this version starting Skinmanager from Navi button and NOT from the tools menu.


All the people who already bought my skinpacks can get their update in the Gdrive folder, please always delete the old Skinmanager from SDcard/USB  and extract the new one in it.

A big tnx to my friends EAC, Alex  and everybody who's helping me developing all this:)

August 2015 S100-Skinpack available!! SkinManager 5.00!! Skin6!! and much more...

As i have anticipated in my previous posts this time there are many changes in the skinpacks but also on the sharing method i use to distribute them.
You have may noticed that my dropbox got suspended a few times in the last weeks because of the high bandwith usage, so I decided to leave dropbox for now and start using GoogleDrive instead and share the access of my folder only to the e-mail address of the buyers.

So everybody who already bought the skinpack, please send me an access request by email specifying which skinpacks has been bought, a Gmail account to send the Gdrive invitation and your unit model number "Cxxx".
To know your model number simply go in the System Information screen on your unit as described in this post:
how-to-tell-roadnav-satnav-model-number
Once you tell me your model number i'll send you back an activation file that you will need to put in the SkinManager folder.


This was the annoying part of the news, let's see now what you'll get in this new skinpack:

- A complete rework of Skinmanager (tnx EAC!)
- A new Skin 6 based on MyDean firmware
- New graphic for most sections of Skin3
- New graphics for DSP, GPS, Clendar, Calc etc.. on Skin5
- New Nitrogen Skin "Carplay-Spotify"
- New "Switch firmware" function in Skinmanager
- Unified skinpack for all firmwares from 1.7.9 to 1.1.10
- Arabic and other languages support in fw 1.1.10
- More models adaption
- Hundreds of bugs fixed

The list of changes is so big that i recommend everybody to take a look at the release notes of this skinpack, here: http://pastebin.com/EAL4tvc1
or directly on the unit pressing the "i" at bottom left of  Skinmanger main screen.
