Hi Everyone
New here but have been following this thread for a While. I recently purchased a second Asteroid Smart Unit. Even though the OS is ancient and outdated, I still love this unit :)
The new one I got is unfortunatly in English (not a big problem though I prefer Danish). The new unit does not have Danish as a selectable language, my old one has.
My question is:
- Does anyone have an update to Danish language?
- I downloaded the Smart Update M3.plf from KWKSND´s website. Does this update contain Danish language(DK)?

A million thanks in advance

Jakob

Hi again
Do I managed to get My Asteroid firmware flashed to danish using the M3.plf file from KWKSND's website which i way cool 👍😁.
All went perfectly and It's working flawless. Only Thing is My navigation program changed from BeNAV to iGO , which I actually prefer. My issue is now that the SD card I have from My other Unit (with iGO navigation) contains maps from 2014.....🤔
I tried numerous update variants (Naviextra, copy newer maps to SD etc.) but with No luck. I AM left with two options:
1. Ask All of you bright People if Any of you have experienced similar and have found a solution.
2. Install another Navigation app/software on the Asteroid. But how the h... Do I install an app... 😲 Sorry if it is a noob question, but I checked the install from unknown source and downloaded some apps from KWKSND's website and copied them to the root of My SD card. Tried the installer in the developers menu but it doesn't find anything 🤔

Hope anyone can shed some light on this 😎
Best regards
Jakob

Hi everyone,
I am looking for the latest update with IT language too, if possible, but I am confused: on KWKSND's link there are the ver. 2.1.x and then M3, M4, M50.
Which one is the latest (2.3.38.22) quoted here above by MR V.?
I checked everywere online and can't find infos about these Mxx version: which versions are? What does it means 3, 4, 50? Are the latest or not?
(confused)
The only other info I got is from this file, which explains compatibilies but versions...
http://www.amervox.com/txt/asteroid_smart.html

thank you very much for the help!!

Parrot Asteroid currently software version 2.3.38.37 M1C. I'm trying to upload a M3 package with Polish. However, after inserting the pendrive with the file, the following message appears: that it cannot find the update file. The question is whether the downloaded version that https://www.mediafire.com/folder/0jgottr1dstbd/Parrot_Asteroid_Smart is the appropriate version? Is it a higher version? Because maybe it is, for example, 2.3.38.22 or 35 and does not see the update? Can I downgrade normally? And should it work? Or maybe you need to rename the file to Asteroid_Smart_Update.? Without M3? Why can't I see this file on my USB flash drive?

Format pendrive FAT32, copy firmware with this file name:
Asteroid_Smart_update.plf
Case sensitive!!!

If not ok, please format simple FAT and copy again!
NTFS or exFAT not supported!

Nobody has the latest german Firmware M2E as plf file?

Another question:
I've changed the original GPS mouse to a GlobalSat SiRFIV which works perfect. But on every boot the Components Updater likes to update, but this process fails because the needed file is not available.
Has anyone the necessary GSD4e_4.1.2-P1_P9 file?

HI All,

My old Asteroid Smart is still a great unit, despite its age. However, I would really like to be able to play lossless files - when I play them through the line-in with a good portable player, the sound quality is much better. But looking for tracks on a portable is hardly a safe way to drive.....

Now, before you tell me I can use VLC, at some stage in the past I must have removed VLC. Of course, Parrot Asteroid Market is no more (at least it doesn't work for me, throws an error asking me to set the time on teh device, despite it being correct), so I can't simply re-install VLC.

So, does anyone know where I can find an apk of VLC that will work on Android 2.3? Or alternatively some other apk of a program that can play lossless. Or a repository of programs that were on Parrot Asteroid Market?

Thanks in advance.

Dave

If anyone else is looking, I found a suitable VLC player on apkmirror.com. Installed the ARM v7 one for Android 2.2+, since there wasn't one for Android 2.3, and it seems to work fine.

    I'm not sure where I found this info, but I don't believe it was here, so I thought I'd leave a little write up about enabling Google Voice Search. First I found and downloaded the old voice search apk. You will need to search for voice search 2.1.4 apk..should be a legitimate free download. However, as I'm sure many have tried and seen, it simply force closes when installed. So, as mentioned, I found a post somewhere that pointed to the missing lib...oh so obviously named libvoicesearch.so. It can be found in the gingerbread gapps zip. Again, you can just search for that...I found it on goo.im/gapps. Now on a basic level, we're done, you can have your voice control icon and a voice input button will be added to maps and the browser.

    voice_search.jpg

    maps.jpg

    browser.jpg


    So, we're just missing one more thing...voice typing from the keyboard into any app. Unfortunately whatever it is that triggers keyboards to display a voice input key is still missing. So, simply installing Gingerbread Keyboard isn't enough to enable the functionality. I tried out quite a few keyboards and obviously they are all keying off the same thing...perhaps it's a bit to flip in some config file...regardless it's not there currently. I did find two keyboards(there are possibly more) that will present the key. One is SwiftKey, the other Kii. Neither are free, Kii only clears it's fancy prediction dictionary when not registered, so I went with it...plus it has a better voice input presentation. Only final caveat is that neither of these will show the voice key as a primary key...you have to hold another key and it will popup as the first option...so it's not too bad. Still looking for a perfect solution, but this functions in the meantime.

    kii.jpg


    I guess I'll go ahead and post up a few other things from my setup that folks might find useful since I'm here.

    1. Tablet Talk - Direct Text message forwarding from your phone. There are a few programs like this, but this one uses a direct link (BT or Wifi) from your phone and doesn't have to go out to some other server to store/fetch messages. Interface it okay, designed for tablets, so a bit cramped on the small screen. But seems to function pretty well. I'm connected via bluetooth and it doesn't interfere with voice call functionality at all. You do have to run a service on your phone also, but so far I haven't noticed any negative impact. Oh yeah, needs an Android phone...but we're on XDA right...so that shouldn't be a problem for most.

    tablet_talk.jpg


    2.Android Weather Widget - I have discovered, along with others, that the majority of weather widgets don't play nicely with the Asteroid. Since it's gingerbread, the widgets basically think it's a phone and even when connected to some wifi network, when it can't get initial location triangulation via a cellular data network...it will never get a location lock. Elsewhere someone found a non-free widget that functioned correctly, but I'm cheap... I finally found the Android Weather Widget after trying quite a few. It's pulls location via the gps and then grabs the needed data from wifi. Works and looks great. Using it with ADW in the screenshot of my current setup. As an aside, so far ADW is working nicely.

    adw_weather.jpg


    3. PerApp - Most of the time I like to use Google Navigation for my mapping needs. I quickly found there was no way to adjust the volume on the Asteroid. It is not tied to master or notification...well it does adjust with master(since, you know, it's the master volume), but it's at a much lower level than the music so can't play nicely. Found PerApp, which allows me to go in and set up to a +15db increase for the app. Works like a charm. Also has rotation functionality(again per app) that functions great. Only caveat can be found in one of my previous posts. Make sure to turn off it's screen timeout functionality. You can't set it to 0(which in this case is no timeout) and it will default to 1 minute. You will then get an annoying clock popup every minute and go crazy trying to find out why. So after installing you might needs something like SOFFT to reset the default timeout.

    4. AsteroidTweaker - Mentioned just above, I basically use this to have a reboot functionality without having to have a paperclip handy along with getting my unit to resume from my USB drive most of the time. Also has various other tweak and fixes. Worth a look. Steering wheel control people, it claims to have some fixes for that also...but I haven't looked into it much as I do not. One negative I have noticed is that when switching between sources, it get's a little confused and jumps back a forth for a second...I don't switch sources that often, so minor annoyance for me.

    5. Droid VNC Server, Dropbear SSH Server(not my first choice and now discontinued, but works). Using VNC to capture screens, it's also nice to play around from the comfort of my house. A bit slow to refresh and makes some actions pretty difficult, but overall works well. Always nice to be able to SSH in and take a look around also.

    6. AdAway - Host file ad blocker.

    7. Mongoose web server - This is actually for running on a windows PC. Just throwing it in because it's handy. Basically just throw the executable in a directory of file you want to access remotely and start it up. Then you can browse to your pc from the Asteroid Smart web browser and download the stuff you are wanting to get on your device. Sure you could also start up the SSH Server and scp, or install and sftp server, but this is just handy sometime.

    Anyway, hope this might help some folks out. I had nice helpful links in place for the apps, but XDA apparently did not care for that within my great wall of text. Not quite sure why it refused to let me post with the links... Anyway, let me know if you have any questions on things I've mentioned...

    Thank you, sounds great. Please keep us updated! :good:

    So, i've managed to build a kernel, compile CWM and i'm in the process of compiling CM10.1

    luckily my Big bro works for HP and has loaned me a VM on one of his HPCloud Farms.

    my current issue is reverting to a working unit. if i replace the current recovery with CWM, i cant just put a stock rom back because the stock rom uses a PLF file. i was hoping that the PLF was just a renamed ZIP, but i dont think it is.

    so, as you can understand i'm a bit wary of just flashing the recovery.img using ADB if i cant but it all back.. i've taken a copy of the mtd0 and mtd 1 devices but they're pretty useless if i cant get the thing to boot and its bricked..

    i'll do some research and maybe even get in touch with parrot themselves to see what my options are..

    Hey everyone,

    After a few failed attempts at getting the Play Store working on my Asteroid Smart I eventually got it to work, to be honest it wasn't complicated just long winded.

    I have gone through the other write up's and some didn't work (at least for me anyway) so I thought I'd share 'my' installation process, if it helps 1 person then it was worth the effort :good:

    1. Install Framaroot from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2130276 I used 1.4.1

    I followed this video to install the apps

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD4LSdZ3OBs

    This is the installation procedure I followed for Framaroot

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTFVkjtxaWA

    After installing Framaroot, take the little panel off the left hand side and reboot!

    2. Download Root Browser Lite from here and Install.

    3. Download GoogleServicesFramework.apk here & Vending.apk here and copy both files onto your SD card.

    4, Install GoogleServicesFramework.apk

    I then rebooted the Asteroid Smart.

    5. Using Root Browser Lite, locate Vending.apk on your SD Card and copy the file to /system/app on the root of the Asteroid.

    6. Long press the Vending.apk file and go to 'Permissions' I set Users/Group/Others to Read & Write access.

    Again I rebooted the Asteroid.

    7. Create a shortcut to Vending and login to your google account, at this point I did get an error but I just continued and logged in.

    That was it :D It works perfectly!

    I also installed used Market Helper from here to trick the Google Play Store into thinking my Asteroid was my Samsung Galaxy S3. The only issue I found doing this was that the setup screen didn't fit the Smart too well so I used 'Ultimate Rotation Control' downloaded from the play store to set the screen into Portrait mode while I used Market Helper.

    I now have CoPilot live installed :good:

    I know it's a bit long but it worked for me, hopefully it will be of use to others :cool:

    So, today i created an Amazon AWS EC2 instance with the sole intention of porting Jellybean to the Asteroid Smart.

    i've never port a ROM before and this will be a very steep learning Curve, but i'm hoping that due to the lack of built in Radio Modems and other boards that it should be easier that other devices. Famous last words eh?

    i'll prob make a separate Thread for my progress but if anyone has any experience to share, please feel free.
