To avoid sharing of my hard work, i added a security check in the ROM.

To unlock the security check in my ROM please provide me your unit model number (M***).

To know it simply go in Settings->System information screen on your unit.

In the picture you can see it’s a M171 model.
Once you tell me your model number i'll send you a file with the unclock code that you will need to add in the folder WINCACFG on sdcard before flashing the rom.
If you try to run the rom without the unlock file or with the wrong code you will see a picture like this:

If you like it and you'd like to see more picture and a demo video, please go visit my site:

  3. Hello,
    I've got a Citroen C4 (2007) and a C088 player (Windows CE).
    Do you have a compatible firmware to convert it with Android ?
    Thanks :)

    1. C088 cannot be converted to android, BTW you can use my wince skinpacks and mirrorlink.

    2. Ah OK. MirrorLink is compatible ?
      Where can i found your wince skinpacks and mirrorlink for C088 ?

    3. You can buy it from my site www.navimods.tk

    4. Thanks :) What is the references ?

    5. Please, can you say me what i need to buy ?

    6. Go here: http://kotixworld.wixsite.com/navimods/s100
      Choose the skins you want to buy and how many.
      You can choose from 1 skin only to 5 skins, it's totally up to you.

    7. The skins are for S100 and S150, not for C088 ? What can i choose ?

    8. Thomas, c088 is anche s100 model ;)

    9. Hello,

      Yes thank you I found skins;)

      But I didnt find mirrorlink ?

      Where is it ?

      Thank you :)

    10. Mirrorlink is included in my skinpacks.
      All the extra software is always included in the skinmanager even if you buy one or more skins.

    11. Ah OK super !
      But how does it work without the Android interface ?
      How can i connect to the mirrorlink on my c088 ?
      thanks !!

    13. on my C088, I do not have this button at the bottom right of the main menu.

    14. Of course not, you have to buy my skinpack.

    15. OK OK super ! The installation of the skinpack is easy ?

  4. Hi,

    my unit is M072 with follow firmware: rk3188-eng 4.4.4 KTU84Q eng.rks160.20160805.162308 TP000i1
    Can I directly flash your ROM?
    Another question, i have when playing mp3 and mp4 / mkv files constantly audio and video misfires. Is that better with your ROM?

    1. Hello? Can not anyone answer me, or do not want anyone?

    2. Sorry man if i forgot you;)
      Yes you can flash directly my rom.
      I don't understand what you mean with misfires, BTW I provide you a newer MCU that maybe can fix it...

    3. Thanks for the answer.
      If I flasht your ROM and get an updated firmware from the manufacturer, then I have to flashen your rom again?

    4. I normally update my rom as soon as a new firmware is available.
      So you can choose to keep updating my rom or flash the original fw. It's up to you ;)

  5. Well, I was in Rome for five days. I loved it. I have a Nissan Qashqai +2 and I bought an S160.
    Model Number: M001-1
    Build Number: rk3188-eng 4.4.4 KTU84Q eng.rks 160.20160902.154432.WQ.TP000.i1
    MCU: 61609090.A
    FLASH: A00A
    According to what I have read, I understand that your ROM updates the MCU and Android system. I ask, it is possible to update separately. I have a friend with an Android radio HuiFei that updates separately. Although you can also update together.

    1. Another thing, Android software is the same regardless of model (M001, etc). I guess the MCU is different. Or I'm wrong?

  6. Ciao, io ho la versione firmware rk3188-eng 4.4.4 KTU84Q eng.rks160.20160805.162308 . Mi hanno detto che è l'ultima disponibile, è compatibile col tuo ultimo aggiornamento? Grazie ;)

    1. Si é compatible.
      L'ultimo Fw è di ottobre, il tuo è di agosto.
      Ciauz ;)

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Grazie mille! Mi servirebbe il file di sblocco allora, ti ho scritto una mail nei giorni scorsi. Grazie ancora e buone feste ;)

  7. Hello! How I can by you ROM for winca s160 m038 ? Please contact with me mr.snowwhite@yandex.ru

  8. Hey Kotix,
    Little question...

    Is there a way to hide the top navigation bar always?

    As I have the physical buttons in my car that do the same things anyway.


    1. Uhm... Probably exist an xposed module or some app on playstore for that.
      I'll try to add an option in settings for the next build ;)

    2. Enable the xposed module GravityBox and enable "expanded desktop mode".

    3. Ok thanks for the reply, I'll give that a try :)

  9. You purchase your rum Bala s160 did he receive any Chaarali email on how to download the transaction

  10. Hola kotix, tengo una eonon D5156ZE con win ce 6.0, habría alguna forma de instalar un sistema Android en éste equipo??


  11. hi kotix, my M353 with last your firmware is very good, compliments!!! have only questions... When connect My ipod nano 5° is not detected and screen see chip ipod not detect. sorry for my bad english.

    1. It means that your motherboard doesn't support iPod connection.
      Only newest motherboards support it.

  12. i got a winca s100 c241 for c4 lounge 2014, and i want to upgrade to s150 android, is it possible? how?
