I use jadx to get the source of java part and that is ok even if it's a bit encrypted.
The problem is that native libraries can be used only by system apps so even if i make a call to load the lib like:
System.loadLibrary("fmjni")
The lib cannot be found by a user app even if it actually exist.
The only way I found until now is to include all the system libs in the APK obtaining like 130mbytes APK file...
Of course that's not the way...
So at the end right now I'm back to school studying some android ndk, cMake, etc... Or at least trying to understand if there is some other way...
You know, I'm 50 this year so I take a bit longer to learn stuff ;)
You are to be admired! I hope (but I think there are many) that you can find a solution.
If I had discovered this forum a few months ago, surely I would have bought a different car stereo model.

Oh yes I perfectly agree about TopWay firmwares. They are a pain..
Anyway, using jadx I can see that many parts of system apps code belongs to very old versions of android, in my very own opinion, both platforms aren't pure Android 10 they have old embedded programs.

My dream:

Be able to Reverse Engineering all these apks, modify them and be able to recompile all these stuff

Hi, will it be possible to have the automatic attribution of logos on TS10?
On TS10 like on all TopWay based units is not possible because the firmware cannot receive the RDS iD (pi code/sid number) of the radio station.
Right now only MTC units can do that.
The other brands can assign the logo automatically only by a scraping of the station name.
If only one station is found it's assigned, otherwise is prompted the list of stations with similar names.

Yes 130Mb is no problem. If you have a version that you think works for fyt 7862 I'm willing to pay for a beta version.
I cannot release a 130mb app on PlayStore.
The alternative would be make my app a system app (probably replacing the original one) but then I would have no protection against free sharing it.
I'll see how can handle all this... for sure I'd like to have a new unit on my car too and i really like these fyt uis7862 units so I'm kind of pushed on finding a solution.

Late to this thread, and new to all this. My head unit's (YT9213AJ or 8227L) radio suddenly stopped working (won't open). Was working fine, swiped to close it along with many other open apps, then when tried to open it, toast - could not open app is the same message I get. So, now I'm looking for a replacement. I tried one of the links for this, but it opens with no radio capabilities (just see the interface, can't change to Europe, can't search, etc).

Is there a compatible link for this radio app you guys are chatting about (which looks amazing)? I see you guys are talking about different units, so if it's not YT9213AJ that identifies my unit, any details on where to find what's needed in order to search for a replacement radio app? I

I agree with that, but you can release a smaller (than 130MB) file that checks if required libs are already in place, if not, then download that libs from you GDrive (or another filehoqsting service) the missing files and put them in your /data/data/<yourpackage>/files/ (that the 130MB together)

I'm really struggling trying to understand how the original app work...
As i understand until android 6 it was using a simpler code that talked directly to MCU.
With android 8 they started using native libs like the MTK units, another "syu" lib, the kaolafm support lib, SQL datatbase and they kept the support for all the platforms in just one APK (Sofia, px5, Uis, etc..,).
Of course the latest release are also obfuscated so jadx conversion is bad.
The result is a mix of everything that is really hard to understand and honestly i don't know yet if I'll be able to obtain any results.
I'm trying... But as i said it's very hard...

@KoTiX2 you have an excellent product for the Topway based platform, do not explode your mind trying to port the app to FYT (I'm talking against my own ideas as I have FYT units) keep doit the great job that you do with NavRadio and making happy your customers.

Anyway many thanks for all the time you spent tryng to find a suitable way to port the app

Hey, I just came across this wonderful app. because I tried to find a solution for my RDS problem on my T10 (6+128) device. The stock radio app has this issue that RDS works only when I "refresh" the frequency of the station (like click +0,05Mhz and then -0,05Mhz). And it works until I turn off my car. After I turn it on again - the RDS is frozen. It doesn't update anymore. I tried contacting support, but they seem to not understand what the issue is and they claim that everything is fine.

At first I thought that installing Navradio+ solved my problem but it didn't. RDS also gets frozen after device goes to sleep. Any idea what's wrong?

I don't know...
Maybe you just need to update your mcu/firmware?

    You can find it here

    The info to the opel screen passes from the canbus box of the radio.
    Ok, I'll see if I'm missing something in that part of the code.
    Tnx.

    NEW Version 2.16 is coming out:

    - Added Ecuador logos
    - Possible fix for radio info display on canbus for MTC units
    - Fixed compatibility for "SF0" models (variant of S32F0 ")
    - Fixed "MHz" in notifications

    Oops... In this last release i broke the compatibility with TS10 units.
    Tomorrow another update v2.17 will be available with the fix.
    Thanks for the quick fix. I had updated to last and lost audio;-) Today was happy to see update, and now working smoothly on my TS10. Thanks!!!

    Assign the default logo is a solution that i did not think. Perfectly acceptable by me. Thanks for that.
    As forbthe frequency man, it will be fixed when it will be fixed. No eta is fone by me.
    I do use high contrast since it helps readability in high sun areas (and here is one), and the viewing angle my stereo has. Thanks for that, but i will stick with high contrast. Its not a problem, just things i saw while using this application.
    Got it about loc and dx.
    Got it about st.

    And last piece for me will be to correctly match color with car.
    Very nice work man. Keep up

    I have a little good news:
    Finally I'm now able to set frequency and receive rds infos from my fyt unit and show them in NavRadio+ :D
    I found also a small trick to avoid having all native libs included in the app.
    There is still a lot of job to do but I'm pretty happy that something is finally moving in this unit. :D

    hello, do you have any news?
    The only news is that I now have an 8227L unit and a px5 s32f0 one.
    I'm working on it but it's not an easy job
    3
    Is it possible to build support in for the FYT Intel Airmont SC9853i units eventually?
    Maybe in a future, right now only TopWay based units with sc9853i are supported.
    I will make a poll of which unit to support next as I need to buy one of these units to start developing sw for it.
