Hi all

I want to present you the work done by Serg090909 on the 2 Din Chinese Car audio system many people begin to use.

This sort of Car audio use WinCe 6.0 for Radio/TV/BT and the Android part for GPS and everything android can handle.

I only found information about modification in russian language by this famous guy i want to thanks gratefuly : Serg090909.

He made possible to boot from Sd-Card new builds (apollo tvbox and caravn776 build) for this sort of car audio and called it "GIBROID".

With this way, you don't touch at the Nands and don't damage your system.
Insert back your original Sd-Card to boot normally, nothing is replaced in the nands when you switch to your GIBROID Sd-Card

Work has been done to backup your nand and write nand again, but for end users GIBROID from Sd-Card is a better thing and the easiest way to do.

HOW TO :

Install GIBROID on Sd-Card :

- Use Win32 Disk Imager (sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager) to Format Sd-Card and write "GIBROID-4G-11012014.img".

This image is 4g space. You can use max 32g Sd-Card, but since this operation use all the space of the Sd card you are invited to expand the rest of the Sd-card space for User space

- Use MiniTool® Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1 (partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html) to expand the Sd-Card space.

- Place your GIBROID Sd-card inside the GPS Slot and keep safely your original Sd-Card.

Screenshots to Switch from Apollo to Caravn :
See (Screenshots) Switch from Apollo to Caravn.rar Attachments

Backup/Write Nand for "experts" :

Dump to the Sd-Card
- Download the script a10-Backup-SH (See Attachments). Copy it in the root of the SD card
- Install SU and Android Terminal Emulator with Play Store
- Run the terminal and see the operating system prompt a dollar sign ($)
- Type su and press Enter
- Type cd/mnt/extsd
- Type sh a10-backup.sh all

Restore Dump
See "Restore Dump" attachments

Compatibility List :
Klyde KD-7200d
Erisin

WOW, thanks!

I installed this image onto a SD-card and it worked! It is verry stable and I didn't have any hang ups on boot! GREAT!

I have a couple of questions/remarks

The boot image is a skull and I want to change it to something more friendly :P Where can I find this image to change it, using total commander to do it for example?

Thing is: Now my bluetooth dongle doesnt work anymore. I have the buetooth button but I cannot turn it on (well, I can but it turns off again)

Even if I try to connect my dongle directly without HUB it doesnt respond. Is this a driver issue or do I have a wrong dongle for this image? The old serge Image did work with my dongle so can someone tell me if they have BT working and which dongle they use?

Also, the Wifi dongle doesn't work as well as it used to. I didn't have much time to figure out what happens but it connects but drops connection and doesnt work that great,. I will keep you guys informed if I know what the wifi dongle does and doesn't do.

Serg090909 is working on a new build that will be released shortly based on Apollo. The Bluetooth will work again.
Teaser

The actual build you use don't contain Bluetooth libraries, that's why you can't use Bluetooth (can be implemented manually with terminal but didn't test since a new release is coming).

Of course you can change the wallpaper as you wich like you would do with your phone and the boot image too (but i didn't digg to find the boot image actually).

I don't know what to say about your wifi, my dongle works like a charm without connection drop.. Maybe the wifi implementation was a bit buggy for some.. Let's wait for the new release !

Thanks Chandler13!

You and Serge090909 have been a real help on this topic. First I thought no one would care about these android radios and I would be stuck with the stock firmware! Now, I have a radio which does so much more and it looks nice! Even if there is going to be a new release which I cannot wait to put into my radio!. The teaser looks nice and has a great look/skin. I didnt understand what this apollo was, is this the musicplayer? It looks great anyway! I was just wondering, since we are running the OS from a SD-card, is it possible to make the internal memory a little bit bigger. This way we could install apps with no bother that it runs out of memory. 2 GB would be more then enough. I am running the OS from a 32GB-Sdcard so I have room to spare

Thanks for the tip for the background, I allready changed the background but I didn't find the boot-image either...

I allready solved the problem with the wifi-dongle. I was in my car and next to my home, but my wifi signal wasn't that great. I used my iphone to make a hotspot and it worked like no other!
