Hi all,
I finally ported my NavRadio+ app to FYT based devices with CPU UIS7862, sc9853i and sc9863a!!

It surely don't work on Sofia and older FYT devices.
I own an Isudar V72 unit with CPU UIS7862 with MCU NOR FYT=1 but it's been confirmed to work on other FYT types too (31, 51 etc..)

A FREE VERSION FOR XDA USERS IS AVAILABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THE XDA RULES AND TO LET USERS TEST THE COMPATIBILITY BEFORE BUYING IT.
DOWNLOAD NAVRADIO FREE v2.23
IT DIFFER FROM PAYED VERSION JUST IN TERMS OF USER CUSTOMIZATIONS OPTIONS AND NO LOGOS SUPPORT.

If you are sure that your unit is compatible with the app you can get NavRadio+ on playstore, here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.navimods.radio

Here you can see a sample video of my working progresses:

SOME TIPS AND GUIDES

- REMOVE ORIGINAL RADIO APP -​
There are some issues due to original radio app coexistance. To avoid these issues the best option is to remove the original radio app from the system using the FYT_Radio_REMOVER/RESTORER tool availabe here:


Extract the zip file on the root of a FAT32 USB disk so you have:
a folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK"
a folder "lsec_updatesh"
a file "lsec6315update"
a file "lsec6316update"
a file "lsec6521update"

With unit powered up and android running, insert the USB and when prompted press "START".
This will reboot the unit and run some shell commands to rename the original radio app from "******_com.syu.radio.apk" into "*******_com.syu.radio.bak" so it will not be found by android.
You will see some linux commands scrolling and at the end you'll see a green text "update success!Pls remove device". Do it and the unit will reboot to android with radio disabled.
The script will also make copy of the original radio app on the USB in the folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK" in case you need it in the future.

TO RESTORE THE ORIGINAL APP
Simply insert again the USB with same files in it and let the process run again.

Essentially everytime the USB stick is inserted, it remove the original app renaming it with .bak extension or if the .bak file exist it restore it back with .apk extension.
You can use it as many times you want.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------​

TOGGLE SCREEN NORMAL/FULL:
- Double Click on the station information toggle fullscreen on/off.

NORMAL SCREEN:
- Long press on the station information popup the "ADD Station" dialog window if the station is not in your station list. If it's already in your list, it will focus the relative station button.
- Long press on a station button bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window
- Single press on screen arrows <> does a small frequency step fwd/back
- Long Press on screen arrows does a quick search fwd/back

FULLSCREEN MODE:
- A Single press of the arrows <> switch to next/previous station
-A Long press on station information(center of the screen) bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window.
- In interface settings you can remove the big frequency in background if a logo is available.
- In settings you can hide status bar, activate the clock and a speed gauge

STEERING WHEELS CONTROLS:
- The steering wheels commands act exactly in the same way as the fullscreen arrows, they just need to be setup in the correct way in carsettings application.

FAVORITE LIST:
- The FAV list is the result of merging FM and AM favorites, so you can have both frequencies in the same list.
- FAV stations can be edited within the fav list but cannot be added. You need to be on fm or am list to add a station and set it to favs.
- Deleting the FAV list will just remove the fav flag from the fm/am stations but will not delete them.
- Deleting AM/FM list it will delete the FAV list too.

LOGOS:
- you can use your own station logos, you just need to know where you have them stored and browse for them when editing a station.
- To get the stations Logos from the app you have to set the nationality of the logos in the interface menu, download and extract them.
Once they are extracted you have to edit each saved station to assign the logo image to it.
- The automatic assignment of the Logos is based on the RDS id of the radio stations (pi code) and the search of the logo by RDS name.
The first method (by id) is faster and more precise but it needs that the name of the logo contain the picode of the station and for this purpose i renamed them for some of the available countries. Of course i cannot make them all and the functionality of this method depend of the availability of correctly named logo images for your country.
The second method (by name) is less accurate and it work comparing the RDS name with all available logos. If the rsult of the comparison is 100% correct the logo is autoamatically assigned. If the result are more then one logo, a dialog window popup asking you to choose it.
For USA and Canada the assignment of the logo is is done by searching the frequency of the station in the logo file name.

AF (Alternative Frequencies) handling: (Doubleclick to switch between stored AF)
AF service allows the radio tuner to tune in to an alternative frequency when the signal becomes too weak. The minimum level signal can be set in factory settings (Auto Search Stop) and has been found
that around 30 db is the best choice.
To improve even more this service I added an automatic storing of the alternative frequencies so that every time a new frequency is received, it's added in a list.
After an autoscan some radio stations can be found on different frequencies, NavRadio+ have an option (in Settings/radio) to automatically merge the frequencies in just one button populating the AF list
The frequencies available in this list can be selected using the station editor or switched one by one DOUBLECLICKING on the station button.

NOTES:
I'm the only developer of the app and I work on it every single day for some hours a day.
I try my best to develope the app at best of my possibilities and I wish at evey release that it is bug and crash free.
This is very hard to achieve, even if I have some very good friends that help me testing it.
I'm really thankful to them for their help and support.

Thank everybody who beleive in my work and thanks for understanding. :)

I have a question for all FYT users:
While using a navigation app like maps, does the sound from the radio mix with Navigation announcements?
It mix sound when using the audio player but it doesn't do that on my unit with the original radio app.
Is this normal for fyt units??

I just installed this and tried it a bit and it works on my Atoto S8!!! This is so much better than the default radio station. Thank you so much!
It doesn't seem to have that function of combining all frequencies of the same station into one button though, but I guess that's because this is the free version? That's the big problem with the FYT-based radio apps. The way they do AF is terrible.

The steering wheel controls, and widget next and back buttons of the Agama Car Launcher aren't working but this is awesome! Can't wait for the update to the full version and I'll purchase it when it's released. Amazing!

I need to know:
- if the radio controls work, like autoscan, seek stations, etc..

This works. Autscan and seek stations. Is there anything else you wish me to test?

- if RDS informations are displayed

Yes!!

- if sound output work (you can hear sound)

Definitely. It was working great.

- if audio focus and mixing work correctly

I still didn't try this but I'll turn on navigation and drive to the supermarket in the next couple of hours so I'll try it. :)

The arrows of the Agama widget has never worked on other models either.
Steering wheels controls should be working now on new version 2.16 (i updated the link in first post) download it again please.
Merge of frequencies can be done only if the unit receive the station id from RDS. right now only MTC units can do it, FYT ones need some tricks and headache:I'll see what i can do...
AF on FYT is definetively wrong handled and i don't know if i can fix it...

So, the original radio app in my Atoto S8 decreases sound when indications are given in Waze. Navradio works the same. The web radio app I use decreases the sound more drastically than Navradio and the stock radio app.

2.16 managed to make the steering wheel controls work! Very impressive.
I'll wait and see what you can do about radio merging and AF. What you've done is already very impressive. Thank you.

Any other test you need me to do?

What about bluetooth audio switching between calls and radio?

What about bluetooth audio switching between calls and radio?
Test:
1 - Opened Navradio Free and was playing a radio station,
2 - Opened Bluetooth One (the phone app) and called someone,
Result: as expected, same behaviour as every other app. Sound from the call took over and nothing was playing on the background. When the call ended, Navradio resumed trouble-free.


A couple issues that I detected:
Issue 1:
1 - Was playing Navradio when I switched off the car.
2 - When I turned on the car, Navradio did not resume.
3 - Instead, the default Radio app started by itself on the radio station last played by Navradio.
4 - I had to start Navradio by myself.
5 - Expected to have Navradio open instead of the Radio app. Or at least to have Navradio to restart as well. Toggled option to have Navradio starting on initialization. Made no difference.

Issue 2:
1 - When Navradio is open, Radio is open in the background.
2 - If I kill Radio in the task manager, Navradio stops playing and does not restart untill I kill it and restart again.

Hope you manage to do something about AF and station merging. I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)

It's good that Bluetooth is ok, thx for testing it :)

The problems with original app cannot be solved by a third party app like NavRadio because some things are hardcoded in the syu.ms server.
To avoid this we will probably need to modify the server or to disable/remove the original app but we have time tothink about it and maybe find other ways.
For now it's better to never start the original app and close it with back button before running NavRadio.

Tomorrow I'll upload the full version of the app on PlayStore for those who'd like to purchase it and enjoy all the extra features.
The free version is already available on the store with version 2.16.

Interesting. I guess that making a modified firmware with Navradio installed as the default app might work. Otherwise I'm not sure how to bypass that. @surfer63 is the resident expert on FYT headunits. I think he might have a good idea on how to proceed further.
I tried disabling the stock radio appp, but that option is greyed out so I don't think it can be disabled.

I'll definitely get the full version tomorrow then.

Situation so far:
You can't disable the standard radio app and you certainly should not remove the standard radio app (with an lsec script or modified firmware).
If the unit gets a real cold boot, the FM-chip and Amplifier start before Android and that's why you always hear the radio on a real cold boot.
Removing the radio app makes it impossible to stop the radio (believe me. I've been there when removing the useless radio with a script after switching to DAB :))
Also: the radio/FM-chip is actually not switched off, but the radio audio channel is muted.

The new NavRadio+:
If the new NavRadio+ can switch on/off the radio output, it could replace the standard radio. Note though that in that case you would use the free version and would still need to purchase the full version.
But that is just one step: The difficult part would be that some of the activities in the com.syu.ms should be rewritten to launch the app in case of cold boot (if only to switch it off) and when using (hardware) keys, although my FytHWOneKey app could help in the second case as well. The diffcult part is replacing the package name com.syu.music as it should be replaced by "com.navimods.radio" for the full version and by "com.navimods.radio_free" for the free version, requiring two different com.syu.ms mods. Also my FytHWOneKey can't take that over as it is really a call for the package name, which can't be double and which can't be "activity aliased".
As my FytHWOneKey is open source under GNU GPL3, that specific "activiity alias" radio part could be incorporated in both the free and full version.

NavRadio+ can switch on/off the radio output as it use the same commands of the original app.
I'll try tomorrow to remove the original app and see what happen on cold boot, maybe something has changed in these new units...
I'm pretty sure that at some point i was able to start NavRadio in place of original app at cold boot but i can't remember now how i did it and if there were other issues involved.
@surfer63 please note that now we are on Android10 where system partition cannot be mounted and you cannot make any changes even with Superuser. You need a magisk modules to make changes there i guess...
We can always use the lsec script method to modify what we need. ;)

Note that both the radio app and the com.syu.ms are in the oem partition, not in the system partition. That oem partition is also accessible on these Android 10 units. You do not have to "touch" the system partition. And yes: it requites the 7862lsec.sh script (or 8581lsec.sh script on the 9863a units, where the apps are identical).

Speaking of this: You should edit the title of this thread to "New "NavRadio+" ported to FYT uis7862 (ums512) and FYT sc9863a (uis8581a) devices".
System partitions (6315_1.zip versus 6316_1.zip) are different. The AllAppUpdate.bin is identical. You could create a "universal" installer using the lsec6315update with the 7862lsec.sh for the uis7862 units, and the lsec6316update and 8581lsec.sh for the uis8581a units.

/oem is a symlink of /system/oem

So mount properties behaves the same.
I got access with Superuser from my app only with the original firmware that came with the unit.
After upgrading the firmware to a slightly newer version was not possible to mount OEM or system

They now use dynamic partitions.
product, vendor, system, etcetera are now all part of the superpartition unisoc.
But as far as I know /oem is still not a symlink from /system.
But I guess I have to wait till I have my own unit.

Do you still have that slightly older firmware where it was still possible? I really would like the 6315_1.zip from that one to investigate how to go back from dynamic partitions to the "old fashioned" partitions. I like to see it before I try without "proof from the past"

Hi all,
I finally ported my NavRadio+ app to FYT based devices with CPU UIS7862!!

It surely don't work on Sofia and older FYT devices and probably it won't work on all others.
I own an Isudar V72 unit with CPU UIS7862 with MCU NOR FYT=1 so at this stage i know it work on my unit, other users will confirm the compatiibility with other models.

I still need to work on some parts like steering wheel controls, launchers integrations etc.. but I also need to know if this free version work for all people with a compatible model.
I need to know:
- if the radio controls work, like autoscan, seek stations, etc..
- if RDS informations are displayed
- if sound output work (you can hear sound)
- if audio focus and mixing work correctly

Right now i can publish only the free version here:
DOWNLOAD NAVRADIO FREE v2.16
IT DIFFER FROM PAYED VERSION JUST IN TERMS OF USER CUSTOMIZATIONS OPTIONS AND NO LOGOS SUPPORT.

When i'm sure that this version work ok i will publish on playstore the full version.

RIGHT NOW THE NAVRADIO APPS ON PLAYSTORE DOESN'T SUPPORT FYT UNITS.

You can use only the version from this thread.


PLEASE REPORT BACK ANY ISSUE.

Thanks :)

    when update cambus compatibility to show radio freq ?
    Hey, I'm a single developer that do this as an hobby.
    I wish to have more time but I have a real life with a family to care about and a real job too
    Things will come when i found the time to work on them.

    I try to dedicate to this app as much time as i can but please understand that in my priorities I always put first the bugs fixing to leave a usable version of the app in playstore.

    To fix the canbus stuff first i need a car with canbus that i don't have, then I need to understand how the radio send the freq info to canbus.
    The original radio app is a mess code coming from all older versions of FYT devices and it's really hard to understand how they managed everything.
    If anybody wish to help me on this part is very wellcome ;)

    As i know temperature reading is available only on MTC devices. Is it there on FYT devices too?
    Temperature is there on FYT devices if you have a CANbus and your car has a sensor to display the outside temperature. This temperature can then be displayed in the notification bar.

    Regarding the weather, I don't know if it is available on the FYT devices, but I imagined it as something like a widget that updates its location and temperature information via the Internet.

    The FYTs also have a weather widget, but this is indeed displayed as a widget on the screen and not in the notification bar. Next to that: it is quite buggy.

    Version 2.51 is coming out for testers:

    Added blur, zoom and fading options in settings for Logo wallpaper
    Fixed aspect ratio of Logo wallpaper
    Fixed Pause on MTC devices that was resuming play once in background
    Possible fix for audio lost on T3L and TS18 models
    Fixed am/FM switching on ts10

    Uhm.. honestly i don't know if exist a way to start up an app in splitscreen mode.
    Not on Android 11 or above. It's not allowed anymore for security reasons.
    (Another proof that when it still functions on our uis7862 units with that splitscreen app, it is very clear that these Android 11 or Android 12 are fake!)

    Version 2.50 will be out tomorrow:

    Added Bulgarian language
    Added pause function from steering wheel controls (on FYT devices it will not restart playing if it was paused, can be done only from touch screen)
    Fixed implicit intent errors
    Fixed small frequency in grid view

    Please report me if anybody have problems with steering wheels controls. ;)

    SOME TIPS AND GUIDES

    - REMOVE ORIGINAL RADIO APP -​
    There are some issues due to original radio app coexistance. To avoid these issues the best option is to remove the original radio app from the system using the FYT_Radio_REMOVER/RESTORER tool availabe here:


    Extract the zip file on the root of a FAT32 USB disk so you have:
    a folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK"
    a folder "lsec_updatesh"
    a file "lsec6315update"
    a file "lsec6316update"
    a file "lsec6521update"

    With unit powered up and android running, insert the USB and when prompted press "START".
    This will reboot the unit and run some shell commands to rename the original radio app from "******_com.syu.radio.apk" into "*******_com.syu.radio.bak" so it will not be found by android.
    You will see some linux commands scrolling and at the end you'll see a green text "update success!Pls remove device". Do it and the unit will reboot to android with radio disabled.
    The script will also make copy of the original radio app on the USB in the folder "BACKUP_RADIO_APK" in case you need it in the future.

    TO RESTORE THE ORIGINAL APP
    Simply insert again the USB with same files in it and let the process run again.

    Essentially everytime the USB stick is inserted, it remove the original app renaming it with .bak extension or if the .bak file exist it restore it back with .apk extension.
    You can use it as many times you want.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------​

    TOGGLE SCREEN NORMAL/FULL:
    - Double Click on the station information toggle fullscreen on/off.

    NORMAL SCREEN:
    - Long press on the station information popup the "ADD Station" dialog window if the station is not in your station list. If it's already in your list, it will focus the relative station button.
    - Long press on a station button bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window
    - Single press on screen arrows <> does a small frequency step fwd/back
    - Long Press on screen arrows does a quick search fwd/back

    FULLSCREEN MODE:
    - A Single press of the arrows <> switch to next/previous station
    -A Long press on station information(center of the screen) bring up the "EDIT Station" dialog window.
    - In interface settings you can remove the big frequency in background if a logo is available.
    - In settings you can hide status bar, activate the clock and a speed gauge

    STEERING WHEELS CONTROLS:
    - The steering wheels commands act exactly in the same way as the fullscreen arrows, they just need to be setup in the correct way in carsettings application.

    FAVORITE LIST:
    - The FAV list is the result of merging FM and AM favorites, so you can have both frequencies in the same list.
    - FAV stations can be edited within the fav list but cannot be added. You need to be on fm or am list to add a station and set it to favs.
    - Deleting the FAV list will just remove the fav flag from the fm/am stations but will not delete them.
    - Deleting AM/FM list it will delete the FAV list too.

    LOGOS:
    - you can use your own station logos, you just need to know where you have them stored and browse for them when editing a station.
    - To get the stations Logos from the app you have to set the nationality of the logos in the interface menu, download and extract them.
    Once they are extracted you have to edit each saved station to assign the logo image to it.
    - The automatic assignment of the Logos is based on the RDS id of the radio stations (pi code) and the search of the logo by RDS name.
    The first method (by id) is faster and more precise but it needs that the name of the logo contain the picode of the station and for this purpose i renamed them for some of the available countries. Of course i cannot make them all and the functionality of this method depend of the availability of correctly named logo images for your country.
    The second method (by name) is less accurate and it work comparing the RDS name with all available logos. If the rsult of the comparison is 100% correct the logo is autoamatically assigned. If the result are more then one logo, a dialog window popup asking you to choose it.
    For USA and Canada the assignment of the logo is is done by searching the frequency of the station in the logo file name.

    AF (Alternative Frequencies) handling: (Doubleclick to switch between stored AF)
    AF service allows the radio tuner to tune in to an alternative frequency when the signal becomes too weak. The minimum level signal can be set in factory settings (Auto Search Stop) and has been found
    that around 30 db is the best choice.
    To improve even more this service I added an automatic storing of the alternative frequencies so that every time a new frequency is received, it's added in a list.
    After an autoscan some radio stations can be found on different frequencies, NavRadio+ have an option (in Settings/radio) to automatically merge the frequencies in just one button populating the AF list
    The frequencies available in this list can be selected using the station editor or switched one by one DOUBLECLICKING on the station button.

    NOTES:
    I'm the only developer of the app and I work on it every single day for some hours a day.
    I try my best to develope the app at best of my possibilities and I wish at evey release that it is bug and crash free.
    This is very hard to achieve, even if I have some very good friends that help me testing it.
    I'm really thankful to them for their help and support.

    Thank everybody who beleive in my work and thanks for understanding. :)

    Hi, unfortunately for me the app conflicts with the original app of the radio. When I switch on the car, the original app starts by default, then if I finish the original one and start navradio it works. All this on radio isudar qled 6 g of ram 128 of rom.
    Yes, on all fyt units right now it's working in this way.
    I'll release a tool to disable the original radio app flashing a command with an USB disk.
    please be patience a little more...
