The code for the factory settings will be either 16176699 or 1617 or both in my unit. The style settings password should be 111333 and it has plenty of options
Yep as I mention already in previous post the UI style code is changed by factory, but I think we can put any code we like by editing the Factorysetting.ini, the code in my unit is 222888. If you manage to open and change the Factorysetting.ini you can put any code you like I think.
 
Hi all, I just bought my new car and it come with this model of android head unit. My question is. is there a way to change the launcher? I try a few launcher but the system refuse to change to the one i installed and it remain as the default launcher.


It's super easy to do... download your favorite launcher for me it was carwebguru or agama... go to car settings, find WHITELIST option and add your launcher into the whitelist.. problem solved.. thank me later
 
Hello all, I want to add any info that I got regarding this Android Head Unit Model that I know so far.
This particular model (at least in my case) use two type of factory setting password.
You need to type in 1617 to access basic factory setting (i.e to set reverse camera type and so on)
in order to gain access to android auto and apple car play through Zlink app you need to type 16176699
only then the option to activate android auto or apple car play appear in form of car play option.
You can then run and activated zlink app and can connect android auto or apple car play. The UI style option
lock behind (some say) factory lock password which unfortunately I have not get it. I've been trying all the PIN code and password listed in the forum (i.e 8888 etc) none worked on my unit.

The Distributor in my country said it purposely locked in order to prevent user to change the UI, since the default UI is the most optimized for user experience ( I think it a little bit rubbish excuse). It appear user also can not change the home app to different launcher since the default launcher locked. I try to force free launcher as default launcher through navi app boot option but every time I click the home button panel it change back to default built in launcher. The usb debugging option can be access through android about menu.

If there is any additional info please share it with me (i.e how to change the default launcher) as I will also add new info regarding this unit.
Try 111333 as password to change UI

Obviously not solved if 222888 is not working for multiple users. Neither 111888 or 222888 work for the 4pda rooted firmware
Well you can copy the factoryconfig.ini file to usb disk and edit it withpc they have entry UIstyle password inside and you can put any number you like, mine come with 222888 from factory. Don't forget to put it back to headunit after.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in getting back, I have also tried adding AGAMA Launcher to the whitelist in Car Setting and it made no difference :-(

Thanks for the info though, the search goes on.

Many Thanks

Will.

    Could you upload that firmware to Google drive or another file host and share the link with me? I have the same issue with the camera. I also have no roms for the 2501. I will flash my unit and troubleshoot

    Here it is

    Hello,

    Do you have update file for this unit? I have one but it is not working.
    What other options are avaliable while using this code 16176699?
    Is it possible to share internet connection with this radio via USB, mine is disconnecting Wifi from time to time
    Other Option availiable are : 360, TPMS, TV2, ADAS, 360 (3rd party), that's what appear on my unit, if you use code: 16176699, if you use 16177 all that option in feature including car play will not appear.

    Hi,

    I managed to get into the UI Style settings and changed from style 2 to style 1, saved and rebooted, didn't make any difference, if im honest not sure what that setting does?

    Many Thanks

    After disecting the Factoryconfig.ini file surprisingly enough today I found the code for enabling UI style, it's 222888, :-D, I wonder what else could I do, by tinkering with all those file.

    Cool story here. i pulled the factory.settings apk with apk extractor and was able to reverse it and found these defined classes

    public class PlatformUtils {
    public static final int PLATFORM_MTK_6762_CARKIT = 11;

    public static final int PLATFORM_MTK_CARKIT = 8;

    public static final int PLATFORM_N3_CARKIT = 5;

    public static final int PLATFORM_QUALCOMM_8937_CARKIT = 4;

    public static final int PLATFORM_QUALCOMM_CARKIT = 2;

    public static final int PLATFORM_SPREADTRUM_8541_CARKIT = 9;

    public static final int PLATFORM_SPREADTRUM_9853_CARKIT = 8;

    public static final int PLATFORM_SPREADTRUM_CARKIT = 7;

    public static final int PLATFORM_T2_CARKIT = 0;

    public static final int PLATFORM_T2_REAR_MIRROR = 1;

    public static final int PLATFORM_T3_CARKIT = 3;

    public static final int PLATFORM_T5_CARKIT = 10;

    public static final int PLATFORM_T7_CARKIT = 6;

    public static final int PRODUCT_TYPE_N3_NAVI_BOARD = 100;

    Something i did not realize that they had different car kits per different platforms. Dont know if it will be useful yet. Just thought it was interesting.
