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.


-----------------
SKINPACK COMPOSITIONS AND PRICES

To satisfy more user requests and to have a more uniform portfolio I decided to change also the Skinpacks compostition, so now the people can buy also a "mini" skinpack made of a just a couple of skins (Skin2 and another skin choosable betwen Skin3, Skin4 and Skin6) or a mix of skins of his choice according to the folliwing prices:

Skin2 will be always included in every skinpack and will be considered as a free gift.
Skin3, Skin4 and Skin6 costs 10 euro each.
Skin5 (Carplay) cost 20 euro.
2 Skins in a choice of  Skin3,4,6 cost 20 euro
2 Skins (choice of  3,4,6) + Skin5 cost 30 euro (like the old fullpack)
The Full 6 Skinpack cost 40 euro.

In this way I cover all the possible combination, giving a wide variety of prices and discounts on bigger packages.

To buy a skinpack select the version you like in the list below and hit the BuyNow button.
After payment I will send you an invitation to the  GoogleDrive folder that contain the skinpack you have choosen and i will request you your unit model number as described before.
Once I'll have the model number you'll receive the activator file to be pasted in the skinmanager folder.
So this time the  procedure is not automatic,  you will not be redirected to my dropbox links, you will have to wait for my replies. Please don't hammer me if I'll be late sometimes, I'm human, i sleep at night and i have a real job. I hope you understand  that.

So enjoy the new born Skinmanager 5.00 and all the goodies it takes with it.

Regards, KoTiX.

    1. Tutte le skin sono multilingua ed ovviamente anche in italiano. Skinmanager è solo in inglese ma di facile comprensione.
      Le istruzioni sono incluse o al max Chiedimi pure.

      sorry i don't understand, can you be more specific?

    2. Built-in DVR has the old skin (not Carplay style)

      Delete
    3. Some screens (in all skins)still need to be skinned, for next release you'll have DVR skinned. I promise ;)

  5. I can confirm KoTiX, DSP is not showing your new design! I had to force skin pack to reinstall to get firmware to show correctly. Changing firmware showing home icons without names, just icons; restarting unit didn't change it. I changed my DeanPlayer to Nitrogen to check, but prefer DeanPlayer, how to find it? C026

    1. Did you update the skins correctly?
      In customization section of skinmanager you can switch between mydean/nitrogen or original one all the times you want.

  8. Dopo aver fatto l'acquisto della skin 6 posso ritenermi abbastanza contento e devo fare i miei complimenti a KoTiX...volevo però chiedere alcune cose a KoTiX, la prima riguarda il fatto che c'è un piccolo errore in quanto nella schermata che vedi qui http://oi59.tinypic.com/2be9af.jpg dove c'è il simbolo dell'auto sotto è indicata la temperatura per cui penso che andrebbe spostata la visuale, poi volevo chiedere se quell'auto c'è modo che si possa personalizzare? Poi volevo chiederti la voce HobDrive a cosa servirebbe? E per ultimo invece volevo sapere, durante l'installazione ho eseguito il Patched ma non ho capito a cosa serve e cosa avrebbe patchato, grazie.

    1. Ciao Michele, ti mando per email un aggiornamento della skin con il fix per la temperatura ;) Se poi mi mandi una icona in formato png che ti piacerebbe mettere al posto del'auto, vedo di metterci pure quella.
      Hobdrive è tipo Torque su android , per il monitoraggio della centralina dell'auto tramite elm327, cerca con google e lo trovi subito.
      La patch del sistema è quella che permette l'uso di radioeditor e dei pulsanti delle stazioni radio, skin diverse per il player audio ed altre cosette. Insomma è un must!

      Ciao ;)

  9. I just installed the new skins today, and it's so cool compared to the original interface !! The new skinmanager is very intuitive and it keeps my old settings (ADSet, radio stations, ...).

    I like the new skin6, even if I have a small preference for the carplay skin. But it's so easy to switch between them so I will change from time to time.

    Great job Marco (and your friends) for this amazing improvement of the basic S100 platform !!

  12. Hello Kotix? I have broken my LCD motherboard when tryingto resolding... I bought a new one (version C001) to Carnavi seller. When i receive, do you think that i could reinstall your skinpack? I expect i will receive the board without a "blocked" bootloader in firmware...
    Thanks for response, best regards

  13. excuse, seller is Roadnav..... we don't find motherboards on either vendor... impossible now on Aliewpress... it's seem be the End for the S100/150 headunits serie.

    1. Hi, don't worry you'll be fine for my skinpacks.
      Blocked bootloader mean you cannot convert s150 to s100.
      Yes, s100/s150 will be out of production in a few months :(
      S160 is the future of roadnav.

  14. Hi KoTiX, I'm running CarPlay skin for about 10 days, everything works perfect! I have some questions concerning re-shuffling icons. Can I move audio icon (function) from media into the home page for my convenience, let's say, in place of browser which I'm not using? Can I change clocks in the "world clocks" to my own preferred location? If yes, how? Thanks in advance. C026

    1. I would like to have the same button in the main screen in the place of browser. I try to edit the previous skinpack modifing some xml files with no success. Maybe Kotix help us with that...

    2. It's not possible to move buttons from one XML to another one, the software is not so flexible to allow it.
      BTW faking the id of your model with another one that have audio button in home screen (c201) you can have the same result.
      Btw you will have problem with the canbus if your unit have it. you'll need to edit the machine mapcanbus.XML to set your canbus number on c201 model...

    Simple to install, the results meets my expectations! I was so fed up with that boring chinese interface.
    The blue skin fits nicely with the blue dash light from my 2012 Ford Focus.

    Keep up the good work Kotix!

  24. 1. I installed this skinpack with a skin 4 at first on 1.1.10.0. MP3 tags worked!
    I pressed a button PATCH in skinmanager and tags ceased to work (when switching tracks manually) :(
    When I pressed a button UNPATCH - tags began to work.
    2. Then I had to replace a firmware on 1.7.9.0 because in other firmwares gets out the white screen in case of switching on.
    I pressed a button PATCH in skinmanager and exchanged nothing - cover of a player remained the same.
    When pressed a button UNPATCH - when loading there was platform.exe error and it was necessary to put a firmware again.
    I suggest to remove the PATCH button for firmwares 1.7.9.0.
    Then, after reinstallation of a firmware, I tried click to install MyDean player and I received platform.exe error too :( I had to put a firmware once again.
    Sorry, Kotix, but crude product, considering that costs money.

    1. Let's explain a little bit here how the things work:
      1. I beleive you were on fw 1.2.10 and not 1.1.10 because tags as been fixed on 1.2.10 and not before. So why you have this dejavù.
      2. You know that Alex make the patches and i cannot decide for him what to do and what not, I can only ask or suggest him. One of these requests i made was the possibility to have the Cover and the Slider movable and resizable. He did it on fw 1.10.9 and newer, on fw 1.7.9 as it was already old he did not include it but the patch for this fw still include the radio editor mod.
      Because the tags bug was not fixed in august the only way to have the tags working was to use the 1.7.9 fw and (why not) its patch.
      Regarding Mydean Player Platform.exe error i beleive i have already fixed it in august release or in the upcoming one.

      The product is not crude, it is always under heavy developement and shit happens every day and so we kill bugs everyday.
      I have no idea what did you buy or which version of skinpack are you using, I'm here to help, to fix my mistakes and i'm sure i'm making happy a lot of people with it. I hope you are still one of them..

      Delete
    2. It absolutely precisely was 1.1.10.0 firmware and tags worked at it.
      dear KOTIX, you don't think that I abuse yours mega cool skinpack. Thank you for it!
      It is matchless!
      I want that your experimental functions were carried out in the separate section and the user knew that perhaps it is necessary to reinstall a firmware.

      Delete
    3. OK , well... Maybe i know what happened...
      Alex updated the platform.exe patch but not the audio.exe ( it was still from the 1.10.9 fw)
      Anyway the updated skinpack with 1.2.10 and 1.0.11 support is uploading, check the Gdrive folder in a few hours :)

  26. Hi KoTiX, Thanks for the updated version of the Skin Manager. I did install today but had a some issues.
    1. After installation (on C026, skin 5) I have lost volume control from the unit but it was working from steering wheel control. However I can see on screen double volume indicator, unassumingly one was responsible for steering wheel control and other from the unit? I was not expecting to have this... What I've done wrong? After reinstalling the skin it seems to be working as before; I will report later if the problem is still there.
    2. I did not see any change Nitrogen player skin, it is still original (?) balck and yellow ugly skin. Note I did try to reinstall manually few times as you mentioned. Should I have the new skin for Nitrogen available with 5.01 Skin5 or it is redesigned for skin6 only?
    Anyways, I do appreciate your hard work, good job!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. It's a small issue that happen sometimes but it's enough to go to audio player and everything go back to normal.
      2. Nitrogen skins are in nitrogen Settings->SkinSelector

      Nitrogen skins are independent from which skin you are using

      Delete
    2. Thanks KoTiX, for your quick response, now I know what to do :). One more things I notice when I fake ID to C201 to have an audio in home screen, I'm losing the volume control from both steering wheel and unit itself, any suggestions? Very best!

      Delete
    3. If your unit have canbus you probably have not luck to fake it.
      Anyway if your unit have canbus you should edit the file machinemapcanbus.xml and switch the canbus number of your model and c201 model.

      My unit has no canbus so i'm not totally sure but it should work.
      ;)
