Any ideas why I can't turn on wifi? I'm on a PX6 running the normal version without OTA updates.
It's been working before, but it was a long time since I tried to turn on wifi. I tried a reset by pressing a pin in the reset hole on the front, but that didn't help.

Have you changed something at the factory settings? If you dont read below...

try to flash a official rom android 10 like HCT7_rk3399_10.0_ota(20211009) and check out if there the wifi works. If its working go back to hals rom and should be works.

Thanks! I did remap some buttons in factory settings a long time ago and maybe I didn't use wifi after I did this. I will dig into it :)

Do you know more exactly what the problem can be with the factory settings? I tried to revert back the settings I have changed but I still can't turn on wifi.

Hello ,

I have a question ,

I did not install the rear camera. And when I go into reverse the display shows a black screen and the sound is much reduced. Possible to fix this? To leave the normal display and also to leave the sound at the same level?

Thank you very much and congratulations again

I took a punt today with Hal9k and already I'm seeing that it's far better than the stock ROM which is cracking news :) Well done.

I'm hoping that with some advice, you guys may be able to help me with some of the niggly issues I'm having with Hal9k, but were also present on stock. I suspect this is potentially down to my setup rather than the ROM's but I think they are solvable in Hal9k, whereas no solvable in stock :)

First issue I have:
- When I come out of sleep mode, I frequently experience this like Zombie mode where every app crashing. Not a single one will load correctly, even things like the Halk9k Mod app. It requires a reboot to fix. Does anyone have any suggestions for this one? So far, I've turned off the 'Restart app after sleep mode' setting and it seems a little better. I'm starting to think Dab-Z is the root cause for this one, so I've also enabled USB reset after sleep. I'll monitor this one. I may also re-enable it without DAB-Z and see what I find.

Second issue:
- Again, this isn't a Hal9k issue but I'm hoping someone has also experienced it... when I take the key out and the device goes into sleep mode, it brings up Google Assistant. It's one of the weirdest things... anyway, regardless of app restart mode, Google Assistant persists, so I'm not currently being greeted by the home screen when it does successfully come out of sleep.

Third issue:
The dreaded Android WebView issue. When I update, everything blows to smithereens until it's uninstalled. I think this is a known issue and is widely accepted as, just uninstall..... my only issue with that approach is, at some point, our WebView version is going to become too old. Does anyone know if this is being actively investigated by either the manufacturers or Google?

Thanks

Edit:
Unfortunately, the first issue persists. When I come out of sleep 60-90% of the time, it's absolutely goosed and unusable. The same issue existed on the stock ROM, but I'm assuming it's something to do with my configuration :( Otherwise these units simply wouldn't sell. One thing I notice is that all the packages seem to be like.... lost? Their icons go to the green default icon and the names change to ordinary package names like com.google.search etc. Very weird :(

I am not sure I will check out the settings and I will post asap

Just leave the wire "reverse" (or something similar) unplugged?
There is some setting that reduces the sound, but it would be easier just to "disable" by unplugging the wire.

I am wondering if the flashing White Screen issue is caused by my values set in Factory Settings - Screen. I've read that changing these settings can cause issues. I did change them when I first got the unit.

Is anyone able to help me by finding out their AVDD Voltage and VCOM voltage? It's under the Factory Settings (126) and screen?

So after a few years of having this Android unit, some problems started to appear. Sound is mixed up. When I turn the volume up or down, it gets mixed. Sometimes work only left speakers, sometimes only right, sometimes no highs... But strange is, when I manage to set it, after new song starts, volume gets mixed (or go to 0).
So I thought, maybe to finally upgrade it, or at least upgrade the firmware.
I have:
MTCE_MX_V2.83_1 (26.04.2018)
px5-userdebug 8.0.0 OPR5.170623.007 eng.hct.20180514.1734

So, first question is...I found V3 firmware. Can I upgrade from this V2 to the latest V3?
Second question, do I have to do midsteps when upgrading, or I can upgrade directly from Android 8 to Android 10?
I see on Aliexpress that they're selling the exact same unit with Android 10, so obviously can be upgraded.

I wonder if anyone has had similar problems, and how you managed to solve it?

Thanx in advance for any answer.

Not an MTCD unit, you could start with figuring out what you own and then post in the right forum. Can you have a read of the Android head unit forums first then post targeted question. Your friend isn't helpful.

    Just don't use rubbish google apps. Plenty of good satnav such as Igo, Sygic etc. That also dont need constant data use, spyware, tracking etc.
    Use your phone for that.
    It all depends on the country and the maps.
    And also what ever one likes. You like those programs i do not. You like blondes i like dark ones. Simple as that.
    And after all there is a solution that is working fine by downgrade webview.
    No problems here with tracking of maps especially, since i know the correct time i will reach my destination.
    I have constant connection to the internet anyway so that is not a problem. Even if i do not have internet connection maps work normally with offline maps.
    And after all since i bought an android and not an old school sat nav box, i already know what android is what it tracks and how it is working. And i intend to use it as an android.
    Or else i could just reinstall my old igo 4 inch crap to work. I think not.

    Anyway as i said before there is a viable solution and i am using it from the moment google changed webview. I am not complaining about it.
    I just find it impossible to see users not being able to downgrade a program.

    i have already installed "5.1.1 test" OTA and can confirm, now WebView update from Play don't crash, THANKS Hal9k ;-)

    also i found "Google Photos" stop crashing, not sure if Hal9k make some changes for it too, or it's related to now working latest WebView or latest Photos update, anyway finaly work :)

    Just don't use rubbish google apps. Plenty of good satnav such as Igo, Sygic etc. That also dont need constant data use, spyware, tracking etc.
    Use your phone for that.
    You not right, "Android System WebView" is used by many apps, not only GoogleApps...
    as navigation i longtime use "MapFactor Navigator" with OpenStreetMaps, this use WebView and with Hal9k ROM 5.1.0 and updated WebView stop working,
    as WWW browser i use excelent "OH Web Browser" (is focused on privacy, not use any storage/cam/mic/additional permission) - depends too on WebView...
    3
    How do you access the beta version?
    When I go to check for an update, I get a message stating that there is none.
    I'm currently in version 5.1.0
    you have info on previous page ;-)

    hello,
    i have dasaita with android 11. can i downgrade to version 10 to install the rom? What are the risks ?
    Risk of strained eyesight from reading forums
    1
    @Hal9k_ In some update you added the radio Frequency in the screen saver. It would be nicer if you could instead show the radio name and RDS info.
    Also, the radio app is not too great. When you save some radio station it stores the frequency in the list instead of the radio name. Its a pain in the a** when you want to select a sepcific station.

    Keep up the great work


    Thank you

    Video review from Alex's Android Radio (Deutsch)

    1. Updated base firmware to version 202111
    2. Updated Magisk to version 23
    3. The Installer now has the ability to install applications from the Internet cloud, which hosts 35 regular and 4 widescreen launchers
      Launchers are installed as updates to the built-in launcher
      If there are widgets next to the launcher, then you first need to install them, and then the launcher
      To uninstall launcher updates, use Mod Settings > Application Management > Uninstall Launcher Updates
    4. Added support for devices with a rotating screen
    5. Added tiles in the notification bar to disable the Ethernet interface and reboot the device
    6. Added the ability to launch the screen saver and video player using the buttons on the steering wheel
    7. Added the ability to replace the video player, which is launched using the button on the steering wheel
    8. Added a new Italian-style screen saver
    9. Fixed launching the screen saver using the on-screen power button
    10. Fixed option to disable Ethernet interface for USB modems
    11. Updated DabPlayer app in OEM
    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
      • Displaying recommendations when driving along a route for Yandex.Navigator, Yandex.Maps, Google Maps, Sygic GPS Navigation & Maps
    27. Added the ability not to turn off the sound from other applications after launching the AV-input and DVR applications
    28. Added the ability to mirror the image from the front view camera by default. Useful for those who put a rear view camera on the front of the car
    29. Added color picker for dynamic parking lines
    30. Pressing the Fcam button again now closes the front camera app
    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
    3. Added the ability to receive OTA updates via the Internet
    4. The default is:
      • English language, Europe time zone
      • Screen saver timeout - 2 minutes, added options: 10 and 30 minutes

    6. Removed applications: System Tests, Debugging and Easter Egg
    7. Gmail, Google Text-to-Speech, Google Maps and YouTube have been moved from system apps to third-party apps. Now you can simply delete them if they are not needed.
    8. Added support for init.d. You can put your scripts in the /etc/init.d folder and they will be launched during system startup
    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
    12. Built-in Contacts app enabled
    13. Contacts and Google Assistant applications dial the number without additional settings

      I have included the PCRadio player on this list. It now correctly starts playback after waking up from sleep mode, if it was started when going to sleep mode
      In its settings, you must enable the "Resume playback at application start" switch. Also, you cannot add it to the white list of applications that do not close when device go to sleep mode.
    42. Added the ability to disable restarting applications that were running before going to sleep mode
    43. Added a list of navigation apps that muffle other sounds when playing voice prompts. All navigation applications must be added to the list
    44. Added the ability to assign the last launched navigation application to the Navi button to switch between navigation and the player
    45. Added a separate list of navigation applications that use Text-to-Speech to muffle other sounds when playing voice prompts
      To use, you need to add the navigation application to the "List of navigation applications using TTS that muffle other sounds" and select "Text-to-Speech engine that muffle other sounds"
    46. Made a list of media players that should not work together. This list is an addition to the corresponding system list, so there is no need to add built-in applications to it. If one of the players included in this list starts, the rest are closed.
    47. Added the ability to edit the list of applications that are switched by the Mode button
    48. Added the ability to select applications that will run instead of stock apps. You can start your player with a button on the steering wheel
    49. Added volume control based on speed
    50. In the Bluetooth application, the name field in the phone book has been expanded and a scroll has been made if the name is long
      During a call, if you minimize the notification, the bottom of the screen remains accessible for taps. The notification does not overlap the statusbar if it is at the bottom
    51. In the Video application, the playlist is expanded and the repeat is disabled by default
      Sorting of the playlist in alphabetical order is made without regard to case of lists of folders and tracks
      Added button to call the Equalizer
    52. In the Music application, the playlist is expanded and the repeat is disabled by default
      Added download of lyrics from the network
      Sorting of the playlist in alphabetical order is made without regard to case of lists of folders and tracks
      Made transition to the next folder in the list after playing the last file in the current folder in sequential playback mode
      Added transition to the previous/next folders by the seekdown/seekup steering buttons and by a long tap on the prev/next on-screen buttons
      Added button to call the Equalizer
    53. Radio - the running RDS text has been removed from the buttons of the saved stations. Added the ability to assign names to saved radio stations
      If the name for the stored frequency has not been set earlier, the text from RDS is offered
      The ability to select a group of radio stations has been made. If you are traveling to a different area where other radio stations are working, you can select another group and tune the stations again, and upon returning home, select the default group again and your settings will be restored.
      Added button to call the Equalizer
    54. Added custom parking lines. Thanks for Incognito+
    55. Added the ability to increase the default TTL in the range from 63 to 65 to bypass restrictions on the distribution of the Internet from mobile devices
    56. Added light theme to Mod Settings
    57. Added b-max script for reconnecting freezing USB hubs. Disabled by default, can be enabled in Mod Settings
    58. In applications, translation into different languages has been fixed and added (now 19 languages have been changed).
    59. Other changes to improve stability and usability.

    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.

    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.

    He hasn't replied to any message from August 13th...
    I read all the messages. And not only on this forum.
    But, unfortunately, there is not always time to answer everyone.

    i prepared a better translation.
    You can take part in the apps translation. See the first post.

    add an option to disable
    I don't have your app, so write in more detail and make a video so I can see what's going on there.

    @okij Thanks, added to the first post.

    Note:
    If you installed update 5.1.0 today and have a problem with Magisk v24:
    OTA packages updated tonight.
    You need to reinstall 5.0.0 and updates. Without a wipe data!
    With a next install of the 5.1.0 package, Magisk data will be cleared and it will work fine.
