KoTiX S160 ROM UNLOCK INSTRUCTIONS

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:

  1. Hello, is there any way to upgrade to the latest version of your mod without having to format and install everything from the beginning

    1. Hi, no because that is the way roadnav release their original firmwares.
      Some small modifications can be flashed using Flashfire but the entire firmware is made also of MCU and Flash parts that can be flashed only with a full Flash.

  3. Friend, good afternoon!

    I have an S160 roadnav.
    I wonder if you have an update for the Chevy Cruze. I also want to know if you have an update with the portuguese language brazil.

    It's complicated upgrade? Or can I make it easy?

    Thank you

  5. I installed today the latest firmware on my M072. The installation and the first start took about 20 minutes. The first impression is very good. To the depths of the settings it was unfortunately already too late. I will still have a bit of testing and then report. Thanks KotiX for your great work!

    ReplyDelete
  6. So today another statement. The bot time is sensational 35 seconds. The original Firware took at least 90 seconds.
    I have a few questions anyway. Videofiles in the mkv and avi format were played before with the MX Player wonderful. In the settings of the player I have made no changes. Now the video runs about 20 seconds, and just goes out.
    On the other hand I have selected the beautiful bluish radio skin. Unfortunately it is not possible to drop a favorite by drag and drop. Simply the station name and the frequency are missing. Unfortunately, I can not attach a screenshot here. But I have the pictures to prove.

    Greeting Peter

    1. Please send me the pictures by email.
      In the radio instead of drag and drop, try just holding on the bookmark button to save the station. (it work here)
      About mx player... i really never played an mkv on the unit so i can't answer now ;)

  7. Guys, i really recommend this MOD! the work is absolutely beautiful and is making you Navi unit like the one that you wanted all the time!

  12. Hi Kotix,

    Since I've updated my S160 with your software it works great except for the SDCard. For some reason everytime the radio starts it gives a message s aying that it is safe to remove the SDCard. I use the SDCard for music and Videos. Any Idea's?

    4. The visualizer in the video is just a small mod i found and that i added as a small decoration. I will try to add a visualizer to audio player but it's not very easy to do.
      The different size versions are the size of user memory available for user apps and data. The remaining space of the 16gb available is for internal_sd (maps, music etc..)

    4. Ok, it's a know problem due to google apps.
      The solution is to use my flashfire zip to remove gapps and install microG apps.
      Or remove gapps and install opengapps downloading them from opengapps.org.
      i recommend also to uninstall esfileexplorer because it also cause audio cuts.

    5. What do I need to do what I said?
      How many $$?
      I uninstalled the esfileexplorer

      Download the gapps-microG_installer.zip and flash it using flashfire. Follow the instructions included in that folder.
