New S100 Skin "Android" is available now!

Finally the most awaited Skin for S100 is finally ready to be released for the public.
It taked me and my friend Jstelz almost a year for developing it, of course not of continuos work but we hardly kept us working on it without loosing hope to come to a final result.
I'm very satisfied of the job we have done and i beleive it's the best skin i ever made.
Here are some sample screenshots of the current developing state:

More images can be viewed in my gallery here:

Here is a demonstration video of the new skin in action:

The skin bring to s100 even one more new feature: the possibility to set icons to the radio station  buttons. (I preloaded as usual some icons for Italian, Dutch, Denmanrk and Romanian radios, you 'll have to do  by your own the icons for your contry.)

Here is a Skinmanager short changelog:
Fixed Id Faker issue 
- Skinned Skin2 Photo section
- Updated Mirrorlink script
- Added "Iconizer" for radio stations icons in Skin2
- Added new "Skin2 -Android"
- Added Mirrorlink Icons copy in skin1 during install
- Update HobDrive with right files with embedded net3.5

The skin can be purchased on my site in the S100\Shop section for 20 euros:
As many of you already know i apply different prices depending on the amount of skins you buy, giving discounts from 5 to 20 euros for the full 5 skins package.
I also want to make a special discount to those people who have recently bought my previous full package (40 euros), offering a special price of 10 euro for this new skin2.
This discount is valid only for purchases made not prior to april 2016 and must be requested to me by email.

This release brings also a new update for Skinmanager and the apps included in it, so all people is invited to check their gdrive folder and download it.

    1. kotix hello !
      It would not be possible to develop a dual boot to the S100 ? Android and Wince ?

    2. I asked why I use android and wanted to return to wince and use your skin , but I can not . When I apply sdboot the procedure , up a yellow screen and then copies the system and makes a number of changes , but to remove the SD card , the machine is locked in a black screen and wince does not rise . I've tried with several firmwares , new and old . Model C238 ( HB20 ).

    3. please contact me by email kotixworld at

  2. Fantastic job Kotix, skin installed and tested, all screens were amazing and I recommend buying for all, really worth.

  3. Wow, looks GREAT! buying it now!!!

  4. Hi, Kotix! If I want to buy one else (now I got Skin 4), how much will costs Android Skin?

    1. Prices are on my site:

  6. Hi Kotix, Installed the skin on my S100, looks great.
    Have a few questions:
    1. In my car, at the bottom of the home screen, to the right of the time, it displays the temperature and the BT and Location icons. The temp is in a different font, and the icons overlap the temp. Can this be fixed?
    2. Can something be done to the otherwise useless split-view mode? I would love to have a simple, but nicely layed out music summary (maybe with basic controls) and map. I understand nothing can be done with maps, but can the player split be skinned? it would render this device much more useful.
    3. How can I set the radio background to dark as in the picture above?


    1. 1. Please send me a picture
      2. Player split? Picture please..
      3. It will be available in next update as a theme.

      Maybe contact me by email if you wish.

  7. Hi man. I bought the skin2 and waiting you send me it.

    1. E ae Daniel blz? Está curtindo essa versão do wince que tem mirror do Android?

    2. É simplesmente perfeita. Muito boa.
      o espelhamento é muito útil

  8. Hello Kotix
    how long does it take to recieve skin pack after payment... or is it instantaneous?

    1. Once I receive the notification of payment i'll ask you your gmail and model number to send you the skinpack and unlock code

  9. I also noticed the temperature overlapping the icons.
    I more or less fixed this nu placing it under the time and removing the bottom bar.
    Only the allignment is still an issue but It looks slot cleaner now!
    I will redesign the radio as soon as i come home from holidays, so i think the old radio app skin might dissapear ( unless Marco wants to keep it available for the themer ).

    I dont think that the splitview can be changed unfortunatly :-(

  10. I bought the latest skin manager and skin6 . I can tell this is amazing job you did. But plz fix the intetnet empty settings issue.

    Thanks for your amazing work my friend


    1. Tnx Besso for reporting these issues, i'll try to fix them as soon as i can.

  13. Salve,
    spero che la tua mail sia ancora questa, è stata da me trovata girando nel Web.
    Ho un problema con il sistema in oggetto e mi è parso di capire che tu lo conosca molto bene.
    Il rivenditore KIA pur vendendolo e pur essendo in garanzia non riesce a darmi nessun tipo di soluzione.
    Praticamente da qualche mese a questa parte ho problemi nell’ascolto dei file multimediali.
    Praticamente l’audio funziona solo con la Radio, per tutti gli altri suoni, anche se ha tutte le funzionalità non si sente il suono.
    Alcune volte poi all’accensione invece tutto funziona normalmente.

    Inoltre sarei interessato alla possibilità di passare ad Android.
    Premetto che non ci capisco molto ma potrei farmi aiutare dal sistemista dell’ufficio.
    Inoltri pensi che l'aggiornamento potrebbe risolvere il problema?
    Ti ringrazio in anticipo per quanto potrai suggerirmi.

    1. Hai un problema hardware sulla scheda cpu, la puoi provare a risaldare ma se non risolvi la devi sostituire.

  14. Hello Kotix,

    First of all, thank you for this excelent skin, my S100 looks amazing now!

    I want to tell you 2 problems that I saw:

    - One is with the RadioEditor, when I open it, I see a alert error saying something like "can´t load psqlite3.dll" (I will upload photos). So when I create the stations and save them, another popup says "stations saved in string_NL" (I´m using English language) and they are not loaded on the Radio app

    - Another is to change the language strings. I edited the string_Spanish.xml on the folder CommonFiles of the Skinmanager. But, when I load this xml with the Skinmanager, I don´t see my changes on the menus and apps

    Cna you help me?

    Many thanks!!

  17. Parabéns Kotix, bom trabalho, skin 2 instalada no C045 S100 firmware 1.2.11. :)

  18. Parabéns Kotix, bom trabalho, skin 2 instalada no C045 S100 firmware 1.2.11. :)

  19. Kotix after updating to 1.3.11 and installed the skin 2 the default audio player does not recognize the track names or the singer.It says uknown. Any idea how to fix this?

  20. Hi Kotix,

    I have been using Skinpack_2+4_07.11.2016 for some time now with no problems but today decided to change from the original MirrorLink to EasyConnect.

    When I attempted to disable and re-enable mirror link in skin customisation the button visually responds to the button press, I was prompted to disable MirrorLink to which I press yes and then subsequent pressing of the the MIrrorLink button produced no further actions.

    From now on whenever I leave the Skin Manager application the system launches immediately into the old MirrorLink Wizard. I have even tried restoring all Skin Manger setting to defaults and the behavior is no different.

    Do you have any suggestions for getting access to the EasyConnect rather than MirrorLink?

    Kind Regards,
    ... Robert
