October 2016 - S100 skinpack: some fixes and new stuff
Here I am presenting a new update of my famous Skinpack! This time there are a couple of news and some fixes here and there.. The biggest news are: - Patched software for 22.214.171.124 firmwares - New Mirrorlink App (EasyConnected) - A new audio player with internet radio support (SinglePlayer) - Radio stations Icons for Skin5 Once again tnx to our russian friend Alex for this 1.3.11 patched version of the last s100 firmware. Without his patches most of the s100 new features would not be possible. To be able to use this patch you need first to update Skinmanager:
Delete the old Skinmanager folder from your SD or USB that you normally use for it
Put the new version on sdcard and paste the skinstall.code in it as usual.
Insert sd\usb and start skinmanager
If you had the autoupdate feature enabled in the Skinmanager Settings, it will update itself before starting. If the autoupdate is off, you will need to press the "Updates" icon on bottom left of the SM main screen or use the skintool proper option.
Once you have SkinManager v2.4 running, you can use skintool to do a Firmware switch to 1.3.11
The new mirrorlink application is called EasyConnected and it is a a lot of more efficient and has less compatibility issues than the standard S100 app. It work on android 6.0 via usb cable and with iphone via wifi. There is no need to enable mirrorlink in skinmanager>customizations, just run it from apps.
The new SinglePlayer use different libraries for audio decoding and can play internet radio too. I haven't found a good way yet to make it work as default player and i really didn't spent much time on it but i wanted to include it anyway in the package to let people try it out a bit.
As per request and suggestion, I added support for radio station icons to skin5 (carplay) skin, just like i did for skin2. A new Radio Editor application is under development that will make easyer to assign the icons, labels and frequencies to the buttons, but for now you still have to use it as before.
P.S. EasyConnected and SinglePlayer are available only for skin2 and skin5 ( I don't know yet if I'll add them to other skins too, yet.)
This is a sinthetic changelog of the release: - Unified Patched Strings (unencrypted) for all firmware - Added 1.3.11 patches - Fixed Fonts in skin2 for arabic, chinese and Greek - Added RadioBookmarks for skin5, Fixed some iconizer stuff. Updated languages in radioeditor - Added single player to extras (in skin2 and skin5 only) - Updated all unencrypted languages to 1.3.11 version - Added EasyConnect Mirrrolink in extra apps of skin2 - Added French radio bookmarks - Skin2 radio now is default dark version (light one is in themer) - New apps screen in skin5
