June 2016 Skinpack: Android MirrorLink Function for S100!

Here is a new nice addon for all S100 users: MIRRORLINK!!

What it does? You can  look at your phone and control it directly from the S100 display just connecting it to the S100 USB cable.

Watch this sample video:


To have this function you need a recent firmware (1.0.11 or newer) and my latest skinmanger.
From the Customization section of skinmanager you can enable and disable the mirrorlink function everytime you need.
Once enabled, you'll see a new icon showing up in the home screen (available in all the skins):


..and pressing it you'll be taken to the setup wizard of the mirrorlink appication


This is not the only news, Skinmanager has been improved even more with a progress bar and graphic on all the windows. Check the following demo video:
 

Some bugs has been fixed and other improvements has been made here and there.

Check the Changelog:
06.06.2016 - Fixed "ADfunction" button
03.06.2016 - improved file selector: now handle the "missing folder" error
31.05.2016 -Added Mirrorlink function to all skins
29.05.2016  - Fixed Ipod "Next" button in Skin3
17.05.2016 -  (WinCE) windows are replaced with their skinned replicas ( v5.2) Customization screen in main GUI is a little bit face lifted. New process sound added.
14.05.2016 - Save logs option removed from settings. It proved itself useless.
- Customization GUI polished a little
11.05.2016 - New log panel - skinned one - implementation completed (tests and little completions will follow)
05.05.2016 - Update SkinManager procedure changed



The update is available in my gdrive for all people who already bought my previous skinpacks.

    We should the USB cable or can we use the cable dedicated to internet (which is also a USB cable) ?

  15. Proprietary software evidently and any phone that uses it needs to be licensed, thats why there are only a small number of phones at this stage. This is not a google(android)feature unfortunately and is manufacture and phone specific.

    1. Info tags for bluetooth depend on the type of motherboard you have. Old type without DSP sound chip have old bluetooth module so no infotags.

  19. Hi Kotix, I've used the mirror link for two weeks now on my Note4 (Stock Sumsumg but rooted) and it works perfectly. I decided to commit my Note2 to live permanently in the car but every time the S100 connects the mirror the Note2 reboots and the S100 gets stuck on 'Connecting'. The Note2 is running latest Cyanogenmod Marshmallow. Do you have any suggestions in resolving this issue? Cheers, ... Robert

    3. Hi Kotix,

      I have re-flashed and tried the following combinations in my NoteII; CyanogenMod12 (Android 5.1.1), Validus-LP (5.1.1), Orion (5.1.1) as well as OctOS (6.0.1), Resurrection Remix (6.0.1) and CyanogenMod13 (Android 6.0.1).

      All of the Android 5.1.1 ROMs behave the same as the 6.0.1. ROMSs. The phone first asks for permission to allow Android debugging on connection to the S100 and then the phone restarts leaving the S100 in the 'Connecting' state. I have not tried converting my Note2 back to stock Sumsung 4.4.2 which I am trying to avoid. Any other suggestions please?

      Thanks for your patience,
      ... Robert

The mirrorlink icon appers but if I click on them the radio goes to bluetooth menu and don't do nothing, if I open SKinManager and close It automaticaly Mirrorlink appers on the screen and all works well. But from the icon is impossible.

  36. Ciao kotix
    Una cosa bella che potresti implementare nel skinmanager e la possibilità di cambiare immagine di boot e spegnimento
    Magari facendo due cartelle dove inserire le due immagini
    Logicamente gia sistemate con gimp o il programma creato appositamente per la s100 wince

  37. Ciao kotix, I'm a fan of your work, thanks for all the work you have put in.

    I have recently updated my s100 with your updated skin pack, my reason was to use the mirrorlink.
    The mirrorlink starts fine but crashes on the moment I want to use landscape mode.

    I'm using an huawei Nexus p6 with android 7.0 (latest).
    Are you familiar with this problem and/or do you have a solution ?
    Thank you in advance!
