Hi as you tagged me let me share my thoughts about this issue:

It is not possible to achive the set-up as it used to be with Mod V4. There is no support in this thread about this problem and probably also no will by the author to correct this problem , if its even possible to correct bc it might have to do something with the original chinese rom on which mod V5 is built on.

I gave up to discuss or find a solution for this problem due to the menitoned lack of support in this thread and lack of development in this regard

I had some problems with the "Restart app/music player after sleep" option as quite often even then i wouldnt have sound, and it would close all my open players (youtube music and spotify mostly) and only open the one used before sleep, and keep the other one closed which i then have to manually restart, but opens up the navi app used before sleep which I didnt need.

So i would recommend to use BootControl app by Lukasz Jaksan from play store. set it up to restart the apps you want to restart after wake up and cold boot and forget about the mod v5 menu, not worth it.

My BootControl set-up below:

Spotify
delay: 4 sec
youtube music
delay: 3 sec
car launcher (car laucher can automatically start the music of the player used before sleep)

once you download the app the above will make sense

i also have a macrodroid script which can automatically start the music playback if you swithc to spotify or youtube music ( you dont have to press play, only the icon on the home screen and music will start playing) but i can share it only later as i dont have it saved on this current device

Yes, I understood the issue as I'm having the same problem, but there looked to be a lot of confusion as to what the issue was. The issue seems to be very strange! I did some testing last night and if you pause the track after wake, wait 5 seconds, then press play, the sound will come through normally again on my unit.

I'm going to try going back to v4 (if that's even possible). That had a bug with the wifi turning off after long sleep, but that's easy enough to fix with a trigger in macrodroid

I did other tests; with iphone xs max, as you can see from the photos, there are no problems, but with iphone 12 pro max (i think also with iphone 12 in general), i have hotspot problems (does not connect)
Hello,
This is for anyone who's trying to connect his unit to iPhone hotspot and couldn't, I had the same issue since I started using hal9k v5 at day 1 and I was using ios15 beta back then. After many attempts I figured out a way to connect to hotspot, simply do this:

- if you alredy tried to connect to the hotspot before, please open wifi on the head unit, go to saved networks and click the hotspot name and press ( forget )


- now connect to hotspot manually by pressing ( + add network )
- enter the hotspot name
- choose security to be (WPA/WPA2-Personal)
- enter the password
- save

now turn on hotspot on your iPhone and it should connect without problems.

I have a Nest thermostat in my house. I was able to control it via google assistant or google home app on Mod v4. In mod v5 my unit can;t connect to thermostat. It says thermostat is offline. Reinstallation, sharing it againt etc does not change a thing.

I already mentioned this earlier in this thread, but from my various attempts I think the problem does not lie with ModV5 but with Android 10, and this not only on these HUs, on other Chinese hardware as well (I have the same problem with a low cost Internet box now running Android 10)

Hi thanks for the tip i will try it out the pause wait and play method. The issue is indeed strange and i think most people dont habe it as there is almost no talk about this issue (other possibility they have the problem too just dont care).

Its possible to go back to mod 4, you just need to use mod installer 2 and choose pie recovery. I was also contemplating downgradeing but android 10 has also some perks, system is more responsive, and i am also hopeing there will be an update with fixes sometime in the foreseeable future.

had high hopes on v5 (bought OTA and ModUpdater), but reverting back to v4 - 4.1.0 version.
KLD PX5 unit here, Bluetooth WQ_BC5
issues:
  • There is no WQ_BC5 option in service menu, only WQ_GT
  • OBD adapter cannot be connected (HU sees it as mobile device)
  • Bluetooth A2DP does not work (no sound)
Will follow the updates, maybe new OTAs will fix this.

See you

Quick question

I have a Witson PX5 with performance mode enabled (always at the highest clock) 2Gb ram

it works fine for most of the time but as soon as I turn wifi one and connect to the hot spot, it become very slow.

I assume it might be because spotify starts updating/download playlists and perhaps google store.

Is it normal to be slow while downloading stuff?

Im using hal9k anfroid 8 but will probably migrate to android 10, just wanted to know if this behavior will continue

Suggest a 4GB SOM or consider replacing with an FYT UIS7862 based unit. Significantly faster, less buggy, no mods just to make things work and greater features - e.g. Mekede. You won't regret it.

Thanks, will take a look butI like the look of stock and they dont have on this configuration for my car (C4 lounge)

Usually the new ones are just some tablet like units that really stand out compared to the stock android ones from Witson and other brands.

Bu at least ram wasnt the issue, I was using Ram truth and on my daily usage (waze, tpms, spotify) I would still be left with 600mb or so availalable.

Also Zram is at 0 so there is no swap, aside from when its massive downloading tons of songs its actually pretty snappy.

But just in case I let spotify in offline mode (will make it online when I want to update my playlists once every few weeks)

That for now fixed my issues.

Will probably stay on Oreo for now

After installing this rom I am having issues in default Bluetooth dial-er app.
When I sync/download contacts from my android phone their First and Last names are merged together.
And because of that using mct dial-er for example is impossible because it cannot find anything.


I didnt have this issue on oem android 10 rom.

I'm not sure if this is the mod or something else. I have a Dasaita with the latest Hal9k Android 10 and a fingerlakes mic plugged in. Callers say they keep hearing themselves on a phone call, Any idea on this?

It seems like the mic gain is too big or your sound volume is too big.

I have another questions regarding radio stations logo:
File names: 10250.png (102.50 MHz) for the default radio group. A10340.png, B10340.jpg, etc. (103.40 MHz) for other groups
1. What's the meaning of default radio group and other radio group terms?

2. There are two radio stations: station A @ 97,6MHz and station B @ 104,5MHz. What happens when I drive listening to station A, and after some time AF sets the frequency to 104,5? The logo changes? It happens sometimes that different radio stations have the same frequency, but the location is different.

Where do you change mic gain at?

Hey Hal, just wanted to say thank you for your hard work on this ROM, finally found the time to upgrade this weekend. Subscribed to ModInstaller Pro and OTA updates and so far everything working well (except Trusted Devices - which is a very minor thing). Using an Xtrons PB88MTVP (GS manufactured) and hoping for some long term stability improvements as V4 had started to do some odd things!

    I imported your settings, started Spotify and turned off ACC for a few minutes.
    After turning on Spotify continued playback from the same position.
    Perhaps there are some other features of your configuration.
    We need to think about it.
    Good news, your reply intrigued me, so I reinstalled everything from the start, performed the wipe again, reinstalled the Mod, updated with the new version 5.02, imported my saved settings and surprise, it started working. I don't know what was the problem, but now Spotify resumes playing. Thank you for your support.

    If you have device lock enabled in the Settings, then you need to turn it off before installing this update.
    1. Added an alternative GPS driver for the U-blox chip
      • The accuracy of determining the geoposition in an open area reaches 0.5m
      • Due to the use of AssistNow Autonomous, the search time for satellites has been significantly reduced
      • And if you have access to the Internet while booting or exiting sleep mode, then this time becomes even less due to A-GPS
      • It is possible to use an external USB GPS receiver based on a U-blox chip. For example, TOPGNSS GNSS803G (aka GN-803G)
      • For owners of a HU on the PX30, this is an opportunity to get a perfectly working GPS, the same as on the PX5 and PX6
      • GPS Test correctly displays all types of satellites
    2. Added the ability to export, import and reset mod settings
    3. The list of apps running in immersive mode is no longer reset every time the device is rebooted.
    4. The Ethernet interface is no longer turned on after exiting sleep mode, if it is turned off in the Mod settings.
    5. Fixed: If you enable the option under application common settings to pause player when mute then it will not play music after wake up.
    6. Fixed display of navigation data in the screen saver
    7. Fixed temperature display in the screen saver and in the status bar
    8. The screen saver no longer turns on in split-screen mode
    9. Added the possibility of correction for the displayed battery voltage
    10. Color schemes have been fixed in the Mod settings
    11. Added the ability to adjust the delay before restarting the player after exiting sleep mode
    1. Advanced customization of the GPS receiver chip, which includes:
      • The use of satellite navigation systems Galileo and IMES in addition to the existing ones. The number of visible satellites has increased by about a third
      • Possibility of increasing the frequency of measurements of geo-position in 10 times. Navigation apps respond more quickly to changes in course or vehicle speed
      • The lag of the marker from the real position is reduced to a minimum, which means that navigation applications inform about the upcoming maneuver earlier
      • AssistNow Autonomous positioning acceleration is enabled. Cold start of the GPS receiver takes about a minute
      • A dynamic navigation model is set - for cars, not for phones, as set by default
      • Any differential correction satellites are used
      • You can select the measurement frequency for the GPS receiver: 1,2,5 and 10 Hz
      • Can use BeiDou satellites instead of Glonass (only for PX5 and PX6)
      Unfortunately, not all of this works for PX30 devices as they have a less functional GPS receiver chip
    2. Added GPS chip reset to factory settings when GPS receiver Advanced setting is disabled. Actual for PX30
    3. The rules for distributing processes by processor cores have been changed. This had a positive effect both on the operation of the system as a whole and on the operation of GPS.
      GPS starts working normally about a minute after waking up from prolonged sleep mode
    4. Possibility to adjust the speed of the USB OTG port (USB 2.0 or USB 1.1). This allows you to remove clicks that interfere with listening to music through the USB DAC
    5. Ability to disable the Ethernet interface to use Wi-Fi without physically disconnecting the USB modem. Configurable Ethernet interface parameters
    6. Third party apps can now set the time zone on the device. Tested on the Navitel app
      If the application has already been installed, then to enable this mode, it must be reinstalled
    7. Added the ability to call by clicking on the name of the contact, and not on SMS
    8. Added display of radio station logos on the widget in the main launcher
    9. You can create a "Quick Call" widget that will launch a phone call to the selected number
    10. Tap on the clock widget in the main launcher now launches the screensaver instead of the clock
    11. Added the ability to lock the device with standard Android way
      The lock is activated after a reboot or after the device wakes up from sleep mode. You can also turn on the lock after the Android screensaver is triggered or manually from the shutdown menu
      A device lock item has also been added to the shutdown menu
    12. Added screen filter for additional screen dimming in night mode
    13. For the convenience of controlling the brightness level in this mode, a slider has been added next to the daytime brightness
    14. Added the ability to set the power off delay by ACC up to 72 hours (for current versions of the MCU)
    15. Added the ability to adjust the volume from third-party applications
    16. The Navi button now switches between the navigation application and the last launched player, which is included in the "List of media players that should not work together"
    17. Added the ability to disable the device shutdown message
    18. Video app includes gesture control and background playback
    19. Added pause for an incoming call or pressing the Mute button for the Music app and third-party media players
    20. For third-party media players, added pause when going to sleep mode
      It is recommended to add third-party media players to the whitelist and to the "List of media players that should not work together"
    21. Added display of pop-up messages with information about playing media from Music, Radio, A2DP applications and third-party media players. Third-party media players must be added to the appropriate list
      It is possible to customize the size and color of the font and the duration of the message display, disable the display of pop-up messages over the launcher
      You can remove track number information from pop-up messages. This affects the screen saver too
    22. Made transfer of media information from built-in applications to third-party widgets
    23. Added the ability to manage built-in media applications from third-party widgets
    24. For the built-in radio, the ability to display the logos of radio stations on the screen saver and in media widgets has been added
      Pictures of logos should be in the Pictures/Radio folder created on the built-in memory of the device
      Format: PNG, JPG. Image sizes up to 320x320
      File names: 10250.png (102.50 MHz) for the default radio group. A10340.png, B10340.jpg, etc. (103.40 MHz) for other groups
    25. Added default album covers for built-in media applications. You can replace them with your own in the settings
    26. Added to the screen saver:
      • Display cover art and track information for most third-party players and radio station icons for PCRadio
        For correct operation, I recommend adding your players to the "List of media players that should not work together"
      • Temperature display from Yandex.Weather, Accuweather and Yahoo.Weather notifications if temperature data is not received from the CAN adapter

    31. New actions for buttons on the steering wheel, including double actions (example: the "Back" button will hang up when there is an active call)
    32. For fans of Taskers, the ability to assign numbers 1-9, 0, and symbols * and # to the steering wheel buttons has been added.
      Intent = "com.microntek.report.event"
      Extra "type" = "key"
      Extra "value" = button code.
    33. Added a list of applications that will run in full screen mode (immersive mode)
    34. Added configurable autostart of packages or activities and services after starting the OS
    1. Full root access preinstalled (Magisk v22.1)
      It is possible to make changes to the system partitions, control granting access to applications, hide the presence of root from some applications, and install additional modules
      You can install new versions using Magisk Manager
    2. The firmware is fully reodexed with processor optimization. This gives a slight increase in the speed of the system

    9. Added support for scripts.d. You can put your scripts in the /vendor/scripts.d folder and they will be launched after booting or after exiting sleep mode
    10. Pre-installed MTCDialer, ViPER4Android, GPS Test Plus, Alex's Android Radio exclusive launcher
      In order for this version of ViPER4Android to work, you need to enable "Legacy mode" in its settings
    11. An alternative Equalizer has been added to the OEM. Installed as an update to the built-in Equalizer using the Installer application
      Revert to the stock version by removing updates in the properties of the "Audio Settings" application

    How do I install the firmware?
    When switching from any other firmware, you need to wipe user data!

    For stable operation of the device, it is recommended to update the MCU firmware to the current one, released in March 2021 or later.
    If there is no such firmware for your device, use the latest available one.
    MCU firmware can be obtained from your radio dealer or look here
    MTCE versions can be installed instead of MTCD

    If you have Android 10 installed:
    The installation is similar to a regular firmware update:
    1. Copy the firmware file update.zip to a USB flash drive / memory card formatted in FAT32
    2. Connect the USB flash drive / memory card to the device
    3. Set the "Wipe data ..." checkbox and click the "Install" button in the window that appears.
    4. After installation, the device will automatically reboot one more time to complete the Magisk installation.
    Installing from a SD memory card may take longer!

    If you have Android 9, 8 or 6 installed:
    Requires updating the recovery version to Android10
    • Simple and safe way: Use the ModInstaller Pro application (link to the application in the readme.txt file, which is located in the archive with the firmware or in my signature at the bottom of this post)
    • Complicated and unsafe way: look for information on this forum
    Additions:
    Automatic backlight control for PX5-based head units
    Internet speed in status bar
    Q: How to get OTA updates?
    A: Information is on my site. You will find the link in the archive with firmware or in my signature at the bottom of this post

    Q: How to automatically install my applications after installing the firmware?
    A: Create the hct folder on the flash drive with the firmware, the apk folder in it and put your apk in it. They will be automatically installed after the installing the firmware.

    Q: How to connect the OBD adapter?
    A: This can be done both from the Bluetooth application, and from the Bluetooth item in the settings. The main thing - before you click on the adapter found, you must wait until the scan finished. Wait until the spinning circle disappears in the Bluetooth application or until the inscription "Search..." changes to the inscription "Refresh" in Settings. Then pairing goes smoothly. If the phone is already connected, you will need to temporarily disconnect it.

    Q: How to start any application from a button on the steering wheel?
    A: Mod settings - Manage applications - Applications that run instead of the stock . Assign any of the six applications that you don’t use to the button, then choose a replacement for it in the form of some kind of player, for example. This button will start your player

    Q: Bluetooth MD725 does not work, although everything worked before!
    A: If the MD725 Bluetooth module is installed in your HU, then it will not work in Android 10. The reason is that its driver was removed from Android 10.

    Q: How do I know if I have such a Bluetooth module?
    A: On the first page of the factory settings, in item BT, MD725 is selected.

    Q: Bluetooth SD-968 does not work, although everything worked in Android 8!
    A: If the SD-968 Bluetooth module with firmware made in March 2017 or earlier is installed in your HU, then it works in Android 8, but does not work in Android 9 and 10.
    Solution: replace the module driver /system/bin/sdsdk968 with the old version. Do not forget to set permissions 755 on the file.
    Or replace the module with another type

    Q: Unable to connect to some WiFi access points. (iOS 15)
    A: Read this post
    Bluetooth module MD725 not working in Android 10

    Mod is a modified factory firmware.
    I can only be responsible for the changes in the device that I made. All of them are listed in the "List of changes" section.
    Everything else, both good and bad, is inherited from the factory firmware.
    I try to fix bugs found in the stock, but this I can’t always do it.
    If you do not agree with this, do not install this firmware.

    I read all the messages. And not only on this forum.
    But, unfortunately, there is not always time to answer everyone.

    Hi Hal9k,

    Just wanted to say thanks for making this. I know that doing such things is a huge amount of work and even doing "small" things from the user's perspective can be days of effort.

    I have installed the mod using your mod installer, spent the past hour reinstalling everything and setting it up just the way I like it. No drama, no issues. It just worked and now I have a newer version of Android installed which runs a little faster.

    People tend to only comment here if they are having issues. I blame human nature. I just wanted to tip the balance a little in the other direction with this comment.

    To anyone else reading this: just pay for the updates if you like it. It's €10 for some excellent software which clearly has a lot of effort and love spent on it, and is a fantastic deal.

    unfortunately this ROM is unusable, this time hal9k flopped

    That's really not fair to @Hal9k_

    Saying "flopped" is attacking the character, not addressing the issues. It's not OK here.

    If there are issues these would need to be detailed.

    List these out, include your experience.

    My device still crashes a lot ... I've already installed the mod twice, rolled back the MCU to the previous version and it didn't work.

    Could it be related to this option with GPS frequency? I have it set as it is by default, 10Hz. Maybe my unit couldn't handle this.
    I will try to switch it to 2Hz tomorrow and test it for a few days.

    Just to remind you: sometimes my HU with running Maps, Spotify and Yanosik (navigation with speed cameras in Poland) freezes. Nothing is happening on the screen, no reaction to the physical and steering wheel buttons and music is playing in the background (if the FM radio then is playing and playing, but if is this for example, Spotify, the music plays until the end of the song). Then I need to reboot, although sometimes it hangs right after it reboots.

    Today I installed an application that measures the CPU temperature and under load (Spotify + Yanosik) the temperature is within 100 degrees Celsius: /
    Thermopad, thermal grease already ordered. Perhaps I will also install a heat sink.
    Look at Alex's Android Radio YouTube channel, I bought a specific heatsink for PX6 plus a custom head unit cover replacement with additional integrated fan made by him. I strongly recommend that upgrade.
