S160 KoTiX ROM (05.04.17) - New "TUNE" skin!!

With the help of my friend Alper, a new skin has been developed for S160 Roadnav head units and it's now ready for public.
I kept the name he gave to the skin "Tune" and I helped him completing it and fixing many bugs in the skin engine, allowing now a more complete switch of the icons and graphic between the skins.
So here is the TUNE skin:

As you can see there is a new PowerButton that put the unit in a semi sleep mode.
The icons in audilauncher are now 8 and they have been re-ordered in a more convenient way (maybe in a future i'll be able to make them selectable...)
The car model Logo right now is not visible, i'll try to make it selectable later on.

All icons in main launcher switch according to the skin used .
There is a new player widget too.



Also the graphic in the audio player now switch correctly.

As you can see from the last radio screens, i have changed also the stations list layout showing the frequency and the RDS name of the station and in the bookmarks buttons now you can choose to show the Station name (in 2 lines, not as scrolling text) or the frequency.
This is a new option in the KoTiX mods menu in settings and need a reboot to be applied.


This is the main changelog since 17/01 rom version, in evidence other mods that has been added:
05.04.2017 - Added January 2017 new type 0 mcu file
31.03.1017 - Digital clock III is now default clock widget

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. I'm tuner skin. Where in your screenshot the frequency is displayed is with me nothing. There I thought I could display the time.

    2. Sorry but don't you have a clock on top navigation bar?

    3. Yes i have, but very small. I think the mass mainly uses the tuner. Therefore, a clock in the tuner skin would be a good decision.

  7. I've been using the new skin for a couple of days and I really like it. I've only noticed on tiny quirk; When using bluetooth audio (A2DP) the play/pause icon doesn't change, depending on whether it's playing or paused. Thanks for making our device look and perform better!

  27. Hi Kotix, yesterday I bought your rom and installed today for M207-1 model. I like the style etc, but some of the functions I had before are not working anymore, such as dimming light of the screen when I switched the headlight ON, any suggestion? Then I thought the station name in radio was going to be displayed, but for the few station I get, they still show as frequency numbers, any idea? What does your Rom actually improve, because so far I only see a style improvement.... Please let me know how to use your ROM at best capabilities.. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I haven't changed nothing in dimming light control.
      The features list of the ROM are well explained on my site, if you need more help maybe would be better if you contact me by email. We can also talk in Italian for a better understanding. ;)

  30. Hi,
    I'm interested in you modified ROM. I have a S160 version M001-1 bought here in Brazil.
    After I updated the ROM with the one in roadnav.com the TV stopped working.
    Will your ROM work in my unit? Will the TV work? (Brazil uses ISDB-T and I had it working before upgrading).
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To fix your tv, you need to go in factory settings dialing ##0323 in Bluetooth screen.
      There you can set your tv type.
      My ROM is fully compatible with M001.
