Redirect

I have been playing around with the excellent KSWRedirect and KSWOverlay and it all works great for me, with the exception of the redirect for the PhoneLink / Easy Connect app.

On my HU (which is running firmware 2.8.6) the tile on the launcher links to the Zlink app instead of Easy Connect. Is there a way to change the redirect to redirect from zlink to another app instead?

Thanks,

Thanks.

This theme was made to order, so I can't release it. Last thing I want to do is to upset my customers 😂

I might release and free version at some point in the future, but currently I'm busy with various things so paid job has priority here. In the meantime if you want to have one made for your specific car, just let me know.

With the latest updates to flowUX synesthesia, it looks like you can select more than one app to auto-start with the unit (very cool). But, when I select an app, hit ok, it says "updating autostart apps" and then it unchecks again so it never runs.

Anyone else having this issue?

You should really get in touch with Nick on Discord and report this issue directly. He can look into this and sort it out with the next update.

fe7565 let's continue here.

First line of Understanding Android boot up sequence says:

Quote:
Android boot up is split into two parts: first you would be presented with splash image – a static image that is shown before the animation starts. Then there is the animation itself.
The default setup on these units is as follows:
ConnectedDrive image - static splash
Android white logo on black screen - boot animation

If you want to have ConnectedDrive animation you need to use ConnectedDrive splash.img and ConnectedDrive bootanimation.zip that I prepared for everyone to use - see post no.4
You can have any animation you want, ConnectedDrive, M animation, your car, or clowns running in circles - whatever man it's up to you.

Thank you very very much! Got it working!
Although I could not find the animation for the clowns running in circles ...

Hi Erik I have a 10.25” Droid UK unit, on my E92 Alpina B3 BiTurbo. I changed the default boot logo img to the Last Alpina image in the animation by taking a screenshot, that’s easy, must be for me, but I’m struggling to get the boot animation all set up in my usb drive to load in a zip.

Ideally I would like this one on YouTube :



Would you help me please?

If you don't have Play Store on your unit then you cannot install and Play Store app. What exact unit do you have? Is it Snapdragon 625 running KSW software?

Just double check if you have Google Apps ticked in the factory settings menu. It's a China thing, they cannot have any Google apps over there so they provide options to switch them on/off in the settings.

It was not ticked… it may be for this reason that unit does not accept the install of google store in apk installer !

Many thanks, i have this unit from few months and i m more familiar with ios.

Is there a post who explain basic configuration on this unit on forum ?

For example, what are the settings « USB Host », « Aux » ?

Regards
