May 2015 - S100 Skinpack update available

It's already passed one month since my last post on this blog but it's not because I'm lazy (well maybe just a little), it's because there are some good news and new features about my skinpacks that tooked some time to be developed.
The first good news is that I have a new collaborator that I would like to thank for his great help on the Scripting side, so Thank You EAC!
With his help we improved a lot the Skinmanager functions and now it can be run from all the external storages available ( USB, DVD  and GPS slots), it will automatically check for Skinmanager and for Skins updates availabilty.
If a skin update is available the Skinmanager will show the "NEW" flag on top of the skin icon:

Clicking on the skin icon you'll be prompted to update or not.
Skinmanager will also check the presence of a skin folder on the storage, if not available will show the "Interdiction" symbol.

EAC has also improved the entire Messaging system of skinmanager so that now it's more understandable and clear.

Another BIG thank's go to my russian friend Alex that has realized all the great Patches to the software allowing us to have the 12 radio buttons, the unencripted strings and now the possibility to be more free to skin the audio player adding repositioning and resizing of the album art and the progress slider. Regarding album art, he was also able to add support for covers in the format "anyname.jpg", so the audio player now will show the cover  embedded in the mp3 tag as usual or the jpg image included in the album folder.

So making a list of what you'll get in this update:

1. Album art in JPG format support
2. Ported the skin i made for mydean player to Carplay original player
3. A little rework in skin4 audio player
4. New ipod skin for carplay (it's like previous audio player)
5. Skinned video section in Skin3,4 and 5
6. Added 12 radio buttons to skin1 and skin2
7. Redesigned all keyboards in skin 4 and 5 (BT, Video search, Audio search) in all languages
8. Skinmanager and Skins version update check
9. Fullbackup of the entire firmware trought skintool
10. Skinmanager can run from USB and DVD slot too
11. Better icons and Messaging system in Skinmanager
12. Changelog viewable from skinmanager
13. And so on... too many to rember them all.. read the changelog for the rest :)


ATTENTION: If you were using the software patch, you will need to re-apply the patch again to have everything working ok.

Some pictures now:












(I'll upload more pics later on)

 Right now is available the skinpacks for the newest firmwares from 1.8.9 to 1.10.9 and i don't know if i'll make a version for 1.7.9 because the audio Patches are not available for that firmware.


Coming up next:

- port the mydean interface to standard s100

- more optimizations and features to skinmanager




------------------------------------------------------------------------------



After payment you'll be redirected to the download link (clicking on "return to reseller site") and you'll receive an email with a memo of the link.
N.B. Please consider the world time difference and my busy life before asking for the confirmation email or for a paypal refund, Thank you.

  11. KoTiX sorry for the non related to your topic question
    but does the 1.10.9 and later update six the laggy audio player
    and does it have any other problem
    i have 1.6.9 firmware installed on my s 100 and i want to upgrade but afraid from problems that i am hearing about GPS also
    so do you advise me to update and to which version
    sorry for asking you but i didn't find anyone better than you to ask
    and thanks in advance

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1.8.9->1.10.9 have another problem on the audio player that doesn't show the artist/song tags when skinpping next/previous song. 1.7.9 don't have this problem. I don't know about the lag.
      Btw if you use my skinpacks i suggest to use the 1.10.9 because it's the most functional and with more mods.
      I'm not an expert on gps side...

      Delete
    2. thanks again bro
      so the only problems i will face when updating is the missing of artist/song tags not big deal for me
      if that's it i am going to update and use your new skins
      oh another question did you try the new 1.10.18 and is there is any new or fixes in it and are you gone support it in the near future

      Delete
    3. There are no relevant changes and audio player is still buggy.
      I will update the skinpack when the fw will be more diffuse.

  12. hello again

    1. NO, every skinpack will work for 1.7.9, they are not just updated to latest May release.
      The skinpacks for 1.7.9 are stopped at april version but doesn't mean that they are no good, check the april's fools post to see what's in that package.
      You can buy every pack you wish. ;)

    1. You should update your firmware first at least version to 1.7.9 version and then download the respective version of skinpack.
      Please go to roadnav forum to find the firmware for your model.
      Please follow the update istructions and the skinmanager guide, you probably have extractted the files in a wrong way.

      Bye ;)

      Delete
    2. hi Kotix, you confirm that at least version 1.7.9 is suitable for the skinpacks. However, you mentioned earlier that skinpacks are only available from version 1.8.9 to 1.10.9 and you don't know if you'll make a version for 1.7.9 because the audio Patches are not available for that firmware.

  18. in my original player I can select a folder to play. But at end of list the player stop playing and i shoud select another folder from list. In your skin and players such as nitrogen player there is a key list to select the folder. And not exist any key to go next or previous folder.
    Do you can fix this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Kotix! First of all, great job customizing the S100 stereos! I'm very interested in buying the carplay skin, but I have two questions.
    1. Is it possible in any of your skins to change the currently selected iPod playlist? Not just listen to the one currently selected on the iPod? Or is this a matter of firmware and it's coded deeply in the firmware, not just in the skin?
    2. Is there a chance of creating a light-skin, or perhaps any other tweak to speed up the boot of the stereo? It loads up pretty quickly compared to stereos with Android 4.4, but it's still 10-15 seconds of silence after starting the car. And following up on this, does your skin pack anyhow slow down the device?

    Thanks again and I'm looking forward to your answer. Have a good day!

    1. Hi,
      1. It's not a skin matter, as you said is firmware problem.
      2. I don't know if exist a way to speed up boot, for sure the skin doesn't slow it down.
      You can compare the timings switching between original one and my skins with skinmanager.
      Sorry I can't be very helpful on your questions.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your answers, as soon as I have some time to play with it, I'll be purchasing the skinmanager :)
