I have this exact same problem and it is driving me nuts! Did you solve this by chance? If not is there an alternate radio app we can use?

This is due to the fact that they implemented RDS AF incorrectly. AF is to find the strongest altenative frequency for the current radio station.
Joying, or actually their software supplier SYU, interpreted it as "simply find the strongest frequency", like in any frequency available.
You better switch off AF on your radio app.

I have my Joying since January and since that time I have been mailing them. They seem to understand the issue now, but they only mention that it is better to switch off AF. They say nothing like "We are working on it and will supply a correct version on ...".
It seems to happen on more Chinese head units. Very stupid.

Thanks for the insights. Not sure though if that is the "solution" even with AF off it is switching pointlessly to other frequencies, even if there is no signal at all.

Change the LED's
Hi all. I posted this question in another thread but this might be a more appropriate place. One of the main purchasing factors for me was the orange LED's pictured in the ad for the headunit. But I only have 7 color options, and the "orange" is actually green/yellow. Does anyone have a mod to edit the colors available? Or perhaps recommend a different ROM than the one that ships with the unit? Alternatively, I'm willing to dig around - if I knew where the app controls for the "lantern" setting were stored within the rom... I might be able to decompile and edit the hex values. In earlier versions of Joying units they had much more customization over the LED colors... would love to see something like that return.

Missing Phone Dialer / Bluetooth App
Hi, I don't know how or when but I am no longer able to find my phone dialer / bluetooth app. I have the bluetooth settings mod and am able to tether my phone and receive bluetooth phone calls, however; I am unable to place calls. Is there an APK containing the phone app?

I would like to redraw the guidelines in the back up camera and have read some posts about changing the png file in SYU-1-C9-UIServer-V1.0.apk, but how do I get to that apk? Is it under settings? Can I get to it using the stock file manager? Any help would be appreciated

Swapping for google assitant
Does anyone know which file do I need to modify to get google assistant to launch when pressing SRC button?

Thanks in advance

Please note, you must have an internet connection for google voice commands to work.

The apk file "Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk" is a system file. You must have root access to install this modificaton. Please be sure to make a copy of the original file, in case you want to revert back. This has been tested on the January 5 release on the Joying JY-UL135N2.

I used ADB to install the file using the following commands:

adb push Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk /sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
cd /system/app/Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0
mv Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk.orig
cp /sdcard/Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk .
chmod 644 Sofia-1-C9-Server-V1.0.apk
reboot

Assign steering wheel button 'SRC' to a key. Enjoy google voice without taking your eyes off the road!

You can easily back out the change by copying the original file back into place and rebooting.

Attached files:
google_voice_search.zip - Original apk file
NoKill_google_voice_search.zip - Updated to remove task killer on standby.
NoKill_google_voice_search_031417.zip - Updated to March 14, 2017 ROM - also includes Navigation TTS patch for radio from @surfer63

Thanks It works perfectly! Which file do I need to modify within the sofia server.apk to be abvle to open google assistant instead of google now ?

Thanks in advance

Which file to modify within the apk to open a different app ?
@gustden Thanks for your help ! I'm loving this feature but I would love to be able to use google assistant instead. I managed to get google assistant running on my head unit but after decompiling the sofia apk I have no idea where to change which app I want to open using SRC button. I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I'm really hoping you can help ! Thanks in advance!
