MODIFICATIONS & DESIGN
May 9, 2017
I released new version of the rom KoTiX S160 ROM 10.05.2017, small but significant changes:
08.05.2017 - Removed Autostart from settings
25.04.2017 - Increased visibility of albumart in kotix skin
21.04.2017 - Added Signature spoofing in rom for microG install
15.04.2017 - Added better audio fader and balance control
10.04.2017 - Updated to firmware base 13/03/2017 (rk3188-eng 4.4.4 KTU84Q eng.rks160.20170313.092242)
Here you can see the single step buttons for fader and balance control:
I also uploaded an "Aroma Installer" that let you switch between Gapps to microG and viceversa (find it in the tests folder in my gdrive).
What is microG?? it's a light weight alternative to Google apps and services that will speed up you S160 and will remove the hick ups of the audio player definetively.
Here some more infos: https://microg.org/
I wasn't able to make the installation in just one step so it's always mandatory to remove gapps or microG before installing the new files or it will cause bootloops.
The procedure to install microG would be:
- flash the microG_Gapps_Installer.zip with flashfire
- remove gapps (option 1)
- flash the zip again
- install microG (option 2)
The procedure to install Gapps would be:
- remove microG (option 1)
- install Gapps (option 3)
Using the new rom there is no need to use xposed module FakeGapps beacuse signature spoofing is included in the rom itself. If you are on older versions of the rom you need the module active.
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:
