Hey lads hope you're doing okay. So recently i purchased a Idoing for my 86, i decided to upgrade my headunit but now the problem is that im facing higher resolution(currently at 1280) and my touch resolution is (1080p) and because of that the screen is now huge and cant even calibrate so basically i've looked everywhere else but couldn't find a solution( basically a rookie with basic knowledge). So please if you guys can help me out, that'd be appreciated. Thanks

are you saying the android head unit resolution is too high so the rendered UI and text are too small?
If that's the case, in developer setting, you can change the DPI by set minimum height to 480.

Hey thanks for the response. The Idoing send me bunch of files and updated it. And now it fits my headunit perfectly like old. If someone faces the same problem. Let me know I'll share the files with you.

Take solice in the fact it gave you something to complain about. And besides if you want the files, what did the manufacturer say when you contacted them?
I detect some annoyance between the two of you, but marchnz is right. One post from the OP, then the OP obviously got some nice answer back from the reseller (as marchnz always advises and which the OP already had done without mentioning it in his post), and then nothing at all since that time.
And then another user asks for the firmware as the OP so nicely offered, and then nothing.
So I fully agree with the "Another joined for free support and left without a trace."

Also your : "what did the manufacturer say..." is not fair. He didn't ask for himself. He asked the sharing for the community where other users could use and benefit from it as well. That is where this community is for.

If it was marchnz's forum, fair enough. The mods have already warned marchnz about their attitude. Tell me, Surfer what benefit to the forum was it to have marchnz comment on a post from June 12. Really, what possible benefit is there to that? marchnz is as useful as that poster from June 12 as far as I can see.


"What did the manufacturer say" is just putting a mirror up to marchnz's terrible and typical responses to posters.

The marcvhnz tells people to not silo (poster's words not mine) recently yet refuses to respond when people have searched for and still can't find answers yet he knows the answer.

There will always be people who drop in and then leave. That is life. Just like there will always be people who take advantage of situations in life. It can't be stopped.

But the rich thing is that marchnz complains about useless posts. Look at their history, there are plenty of terrible responses.

To make another post when someone leaves without giving the respect, or complaining about someone not typing in English is in fact doing one of the exact things that marchnz compains about.

If my responses bring a mod to sort it out, all the better. Because I'm sure marchnz scares off more potential long term members who come here to learn from wonderfully people like yourself Surfer, than he keeps away 'one hit wonders'.

It's about getting people to think first, including contacting the owner of the support - the seller. The seller often walks away from that responsibility and they shouldn't. Asking that question helps others if they reply to get a picture of who are the bad sellers and who might be reasonable. That's contributing to the forums. Why that might "scare off" is beyond me - they obviously didn't come here to contribute and expect others will solve their problem at the cost of contributing members.

It's pretty obvious to me at least, those that join simply for free support and leave - they're typically the ones that ask the same questions as "new member".

I'm not a moderator, nor do I wish to become one. But we can shape the forums, and help those that show at least a basic level of interest in contributing.

If asking basic questions "scares off" those that had no interest in at least a small amount of self help, or asking thoughtful questions, does it not then benifit the forums from keeping the noise down and potentially enable those that do contribute to stay and focus on development and not noise.

I.e. your comment is logically fallacious- a false dilemma.

I know I contribute and have written many articles, including those that enabled members like hal and Mal to create upgrades from Android 7 to 8, when previously it was not possible.

I also offer a free recovery service for MTCx devices, world wide.

How have you been contributing? What would you suggest?

If those that do not agree or take issue with posts - the report button is available for that.
