Problems rooting 822l head unit

New Skin for Radio (see the attachment).

Rooting Guide for AC83XX (AutoChips 8317,8327) (SoC) MTK 6630 - MTK 8317 - MTK 8327 - MTK 82XX

How to gain root access on your android head unit:

[0] Install Terminal Emulator and SuperUser (I used Chainfire's) from Play Store.
[1] Download Superuser.zip (from Chainfire's website) (which includes su binary file in .zip) Extract the files to a directory that you can remember later. e.g: "roo" is my folder name which includes superuser.zip files. (mnt/sdcard/roo/)
[2] Open terminal and type:
Code:
/sbin/forfan guoboneedav -i
*"guoboneedav" is the su password in that "forfan" file in "/sbin" dir. You can find sbin(sbin.rar) directory contents at the attachment
[3] Mount /system folder rewriteable if neccesary.
Code:
mount -o rw,remount,rw /system
[4] Then type to copy su binary by
Code:
cp mnt/sdcard/roo/system/xbin/su /system/xbin/
[5] Open SuperUser app that you installed before and Update Su Binary when it asks.

Congrats! You have gained root access on your android head unit.

Hi
I've tried to follow this procedure but couldn't get it to work. I just want to access files that are unavailable at the moment. I'm generally happy with the stereo but would like to get rid of some preloaded stuff.
Any help appreciated.

    Our devices using almost the same components and firmware with Ownice C300 head unit's.

    *** Update ***

    Make Viper4Android working for Head Units:

    Try also the Viper4Android, and you will notice a HUGE difference in sound quality.

    For anybody interested to use Viper4Android, follow this steps:
    1. Install the apk from this post
    2, Install viper fx drivers when prompted (Choose Super Audio Quality)
    3. Restart device
    4. Open Viper4Android from Launcher, go to menu, then click "Lock Effect Mode" and choose "Headset"
    5. Go To Menu, click "UI Setting" and choose "Expert", to gain access to more options
    6. Go to "Headset" tab, and click "Enable"
    7. Enable and play with different options, according to your taste in sound :)

    In PowerAmp, in order to enable Viper4Android, you need to uncheck "Direct Volume Control" from Settings -> Audio -> Advanced Tweaks

    To start Viper FX from install-recovery.sh, use this command:
    Code:
    am startservice com.vipercn.viper4android_v2/.service.ViPER4AndroidService

    Viper FX affects all the apps sounds (autio player, video player, bluetooth, youtube, etc), but not Radio, which is MCU controlled.

    P.S.

    *** (16/12/16) SOC (system-on-a-chip) info MT6630

    Mediatek Announces MT6630, World�s First Five-in-One Combo Wireless Connectivity SOC for Mobile Devices

    Mediatek Announces MT6630, World�s First Five-in-One Combo Wireless Connectivity SOC for Mobile Devices

    TAIWAN, Hsinchu � 25 February, 2014 � Mediatek today announced MT6630, the world�s first five-in-one combo wireless system-on-a-chip (SOC) to support full featured smartphones, tablets and other premium mobile devices.

    The MT6630 dramatically reduces the component count and eBOM while improving ease-of-design for manufacturers by eliminating external low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and integrating the Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz power amplifiers (PAs), Bluetooth PA, and transmit-receive (T/R) switch into a PCBA footprint less than 65 mm2.

    Key features

    Dual-band single-stream 802.11a/b/g/n/ac with 20/40/80MHz channel bandwidth
    802.11v time of flight protocol support and management engines to enable higher accuracy of indoor positioning via Wi-Fi
    Advanced support for Wi-Fi Direct Services and Miracast� optimization for easier pairing, increased robustness, advanced use-cases and lower power
    Bluetooth 4.1 with Classic, High-Speed and Low-Energy support, and ANT+ for compatibility with the latest fitness tracking, health monitoring and point of information devices and applications
    Concurrent tri-band reception of GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo and QZSS with industry leading sensitivity, low power, positioning accuracy, and the longest prediction engine
    FM transceiver with RDS/RBDS
    Integrated engines and algorithms for full concurrent operation and co-existence, including industry-leading throughput during LTE transmission
    MT6630 delivers full concurrent operation of all 5 systems operating at maximum compute intensity with no degradation compared to single-system operation while offloading the mobile device CPU for design ease and extended battery life. As a focus on low power and digital home convergence, the MT6630 uses a configurable PA architecture to save current at commonly used power levels, including those used for Miracast� Wi-Fi Direct services. MT6630 implements advanced co-existence techniques, including for LTE to deliver industry-leading throughputs. MT6630 also supports Wi-Fi diversity for premium smartphones and tablets to improve antenna angle sensitivity and handheld scenarios.

    "MT6630 makes it simple for manufacturers to bring mobile devices to market with sophisticated wireless features, lower power and uncompromised performance," said SR Tsai, General Manager of MediaTek�s Connectivity Business Unit. �MT6630 furthers MediaTek�s focus to deliver the best experiences across the digital home and mobile applications by using its unique leadership position in digital TV host processors, smartphone platforms, and connectivity.�

    The small-footprint design is available in 5 x 5mm WLCSP (Wafer Level Chip Scale Package) or a 7 x 7mm QFN (Quad Flat No-Leads) and requires only 44 components, which is around half that of other integrated wireless solutions.

    Mediatek MT6630 is sampling now and complements the recently announced MT6595 octa-core SOC with LTE for premium mobile devices. The first commercially available devices to use MT6630 are expected in the second half of 2014.

    Finally got root access on TS901.151104 device: Big thanks to @Virus.VHD


    Hi,

    I've found a way to get root on this unit:

    1. Open terminal and enter:
    /sbin/forfan guoboneedav -i
    2. You should get root console #
    3. Replace /system/xbin/su with the one taken from SuperSU
    4. Install and run SuperSU
    5. Update su binary when asked to.
    6. Enjoy! :)




    I am unable to find any information about my Android Head Unit. So I've started to tinker by myself.
    I've changed default launcher to Nova, then use Quick Shortcut Manager to use OEM apps (FM Radio, Factory Settings, DVD, Music app) which included in com.ts.MainUI.apk
    Every oem app is included in one apk and I set shortcuts from it. (com.ts.Radio.... com.ts.Music... etc)

    ** Scheme of AC8317 SoC. I think that it is a MediaTek cpu.

    * Factory Settings

    * File Copy (?)

    I wish we could tell in any Forum in Turkey.

    Türkiye'de herhangi bir forumda da anlatsanız keşke.

    DonanımHaber forumuna ekledim. İlgilenen olursa orada da bilgi paylaşımında bulunacağım.
