10.25" Android 10 HU discussion

Since the Android 9 Discussion Topic is already over 100 pages long its best to start a fresh Thread for Android 10.
I recommend to take a look at the Android 9 Thread, as there are lots of great Hardware/Seller related information.

If you want to chat with people you can also join the Automotive Android Headunit Discord channel.
There are also Headunits for Mercedes Benz and Audi available which have the same software running, so everyone is welcome here
You will also find MCU Files for Mercedes Headunits at the Discord channel.

Thread to 10.25" Android 9/10 HU theming and discussion where you can find kswoverlay, kswredirect, different GUI`s, bootanimations, splash`s ect to modify your Headunit.


Identifying before buying:
Snapdragon 625 (short SD625) units seem to be the the same Units as with Android 9.
Ensure that you always have a Headunit that really has the Snapdragon 625 Chipset.

CPU Type - Snapdragon 625, also identified as 8953 or MSM8953 (please note that 8 Core Snapdragon 450 is also based on MSM8953 Board !)
CPU Cores - 8 Core
CPU Speed - 2.0 or 2.1 Ghz (some seller post different speed)
Ram Size - 2 GB / 4 GB
Flash Size - 32 GB / 64 GB

Official Support for Android 10 do only have the 4GB/64GB models !
Android 10 does also work on 2GB/32GB version with some performance lags (Tested up to 1.4.5)

Please note that there are already some Fake and very slow Android 10 Units on the Market (PX6 , Snapdragon 425 ~ 1.4 Ghz ,Snapdragon 450 ~1.8 Ghz, 8227L, MTK )
I don`t recommend buying these units where 1 GB Ram / 16 GB Rom version is available.
The CPU is a Quadcore Snapdragon with no numbering, CPU frequency is rated lower than 2.0 Ghz (1.8 , 1.6 or 1.4 seen), they have a different firmware
Also Octacore CPU`s with less than 2 Ghz have been seen, those have an Intel Chip and are also not compatible with the Snapdragon firmware from this thread.
Identifying after buying:
There are thre parts to identify, 1st the Android Version, 2nd the Vendor Version, 3rd display tpye

Please not recently there came up some Fake Units advertised As Snapdragon 625 and Anroid 10, but they are running Android 9 and Snapdragon 450 on different Systemimages, (not compatible)
Fake Unit Seller so far identified is : HFCYJIA, COIKA and Astrowind, for details check HERE and HERE.

This is how Snapdragon 625 ID7 GUI should look (please note AVIN and some other are using a different GUI for SD625)
Update: it seems that they also copied the 625 ID7 GUI now, so it is even more difficult now to identify the Fake units !

This is how the Fake Headunits ID7 GUI is looking
Name:  450fake.png
Views: 15374
Size:  533.9 KB
Plese note that they are advertising it with 2/32GB and 4/64 DB configuration, True Snapdragon 625 Android 10 Headunits are only sold 4/64 GB configuration.

Android Version:
The Android Version is via the App Ver: string, for Example "Ksw-Q-Userdebug_OS_v1.2.2"
the Q is for android 10, P for Android 9.

Please Note that systems with the "S" for example Ksw-Q-S-Userdebug_OS_v1.3.0" do have a Snapdragon 425 Chipset, these Units are NOT compatible with Snapdragon 625 Update Files!
If you have such a unit, please ask your seller for an Update.

Vendor Version:
The Vendor identification is the first string of the "MCU Ver:", for example 023052dGS-NBT-GTH--191127-B18
Most common Vendors are GS , LZH and ALS.

Display Type:

There are Two display Resolutions,

1280x480p as standard and also advertised as HD
1920x720p as Full HD

You can identify the 1920px screen easily as there has to be a Logo on the top bar looking like this : [HD]
If you don`t have that icon at the top bar then your unit is 1280px large, some sellers do advertise Full HD display but shipping then 1280px displays, so be aware !.

There are three different Display Manufacturing Types:
Standard -> glares alot -> old PX3 / PX5 / early PX6, some of the first SD625
Antiglare -> glare less ->newer one only on PX6 / SD625
Blueglare Antiglare -> also called "Bluglare Antiglare" do have a blue'ish coating glare is less and blury, highly recommended but not available for all car models.

Please not that some company is also selling a Display with fake blueglare antiglare, they have a blue tint have no matt surface so glare alot.

Factory_config.xml File

What is this file for ?
The Factory_config.xml file is a text file where serval settings can be predfined from the seller to allow faster configuration of the headunit.
This file does contain serval settings that are also available at the Headunits "Settings" but also serval settings that are only available to change with this file.
So before installing this file it is recommended to open it with an Text editor and check the settings.

How do i install this file ?
Create a Folder called "OEM" at your thumbdrive and copy the file into it.
there are two ways to install it, either you plug in the thumbdrive into the Headunit while booting up, it should install by itself short time after the headunit has fully booted (a message does appear)
Or you can go to "Factory" Settings of your headunit, go to the "Profile Import" function and install it from there.

Where can i find the default factory_config.xml of my unit ?
f available at all, the file is stored under "\mnt\vendor\persist\OEM" you can find a guide HERE.

Where can i get the file from?
The file should be provided by your seller as they are normally preconfigured for your specific car model.

But there is also a tweaked file available which has some more options/additional software ect. available (please note to compare most important settings with your existing file !)
Translated and full feature factory_config.xml for Android 10 2.6.3 updwards.
Translated and full feature Factory Config File for Version 2.1.0 can be found here.
Older and stock files can be found at DISCORD.
Please note, there is normally no issue using a specific version file for newer OTA updates, however it is not recommended to use a newer file for older updates then specified !.

For most known Passwords please check the 2nd Post below


MCU Firmware Updates
Until now there are no specific Android 10 MCU updates, Android 9 MCU files seem to work fine.
Latest updates for SD625 Units: https://mega.nz/folder/NNxk0Z6S#876H_iaKFGrP8MyctCI9Kw

Example how to read a MCU string:
Note: for Updating MCU files, any part of the string beside the Release date have to match !

MCU Ver: 02352dGS-CIC-GTL-DC-200805A
  • 02352 - Hardware string
  • dGS - Vendor / Hardware manufacturer, in this case GS
  • CIC - Target CAN Bus System , in this case CIC (can be E or F series)
  • GTL - Target Can Bus Speed system GTL = 100 kbits -> CCC/ E series CIC and some F series CIC (not 100% confirmed) , GTH = 500kbits -> F series NBT, NBT EVO
  • DC - Optional String DC or DC1 , DC does define HD Display = 1920x720px
  • 200805A - Release Date of String in YYMMDD format , 5th August 2020

Identified MCU Vendors / Seller comparison:
This list ist only a list to show which seller is selling which vendor, it is NO seller recommendation list !
  • dGS: Mekede (subs of mekede -> Navifly, Naviodm,FLTONBOO) Xtrons (B) ?, Wondafoo, Bayern Mods, DroidUK
  • ALS: AVINUSA (B), Viovox (B), 4x4 CA
  • LZH: Andream, Ewaying
  • dLS: Carlife Mall, DMP Car Design (M), Fedju (M)
  • dLC: Road Top
  • dFY: Wincago DMP Cardesign (M) Road Top
  • JLY: SZ-Kianda (selling 1280 Headunit advertised as 1920 !, bad quality hardware!)

(B) = BMW only, (M) = Mercedes only.
If you have additional Seller / Vendor comparison feel free to do a post at this thread so i will add them.

Instructions for upgrading MCU:
1. Unpack/copy ksw_mcu.bin to root folder on a SD card or USB memory stick.
2. Insert it into the headunit
3. Go to Settings, System info, MCU upgrade.

How-To`s
Some of the Guides are 1:1 compatible from Android 9.

Please DONT use Magisk to root your unit, the chance is very high that it will be bricked, you need to buy a new Headunit when this does happen !
As Viper4Android does require Magisk/xposed which can cause bricking your unit after installing a update, it is not recommended to install it !


Root SD625 Unit the easy way Version 2(Basic root without magisk)
Please note, after a OTA Update root will be removed, you need to root it agian..

SD 625 OTA Recovery installation.

If you have issues with your system the most recommendes procedure is a complete reset of the System.
Please note this will delete ALL user data and user installed apps from the system!

To do so you can always use the latest normal OTA Update package from above.
To ensure the update will recognized use a thumbstick not exeeding 32 GB size and format it to FAT32 Filesystem with a Windows PC (MAC`s may format it wrong).
  1. Change the OTA Package name to: Ksw-Q-Userdebug_OS_v-ota-reset-data_factory.zip
  2. Change the name of the USB flash drive to: _kswota_
  3. Copy the OTA Package to a USB flash drive.
  4. Connect this USB flash drive to the Android unit.
  5. Restart the unit, it will automatically force the upgrade. (or connect the USB Flash drive while HU is off and enable ignition, wait at least for 5 minutes)
  6. After the forced upgrade is completed create a folder OEM on your thumbdrive, copy factory_config.xml into it and plug the stick into the device, it will be imported automatically after a reboot.

This procedure may also work doing it blind, connect the thumbstick to the headunit, switch on ignition 2 and wait for about 10 minutes.

If the unit then still does not boot up again it is likely soft bricked !

Your last chance then is the the FASTBOOT-Recovery Method, but beware this requires some hardware skills !

This Post does try to adress all GUI Headunit related (non Android) settings of the Snapdragon 625 Headunit.

If your do observe a different behavior as expected or have addition information feel free to send my a PM or write me at DISCORD.

As some of these settings are only for specific configurations or car brands, not all apply to every Headunit / car brand.

This will be updated whenever new information are available for specific settings.
Some settings are pretty self explained so i list them only for the sake of completeness.

Settings:

System
Mirror Reverse Camera
Disable Video In Motion
Parking Lines
Park Distance Control
Camera Selection
  • Aftermarket Camera
  • OEM Camera
  • 360 Camera
Brightness
  • The overall display background lightning brightness can be defined.
AUX Position

This is only used for Mercedes Headunits, "Factory -> Vehicle -> AUX Switching mode" has to be set to "Other" for this to be enabled, a video can be found HERE.
As the AUX option position at Mercedes headunits does vary you need to count the horizontal and vertical lines of selecting AUX.
Aux Position 1 is horizontal , Aux Position 2 is the vertical ammount of lines to select AUX.
  • Aux Position 1
  • Aux Position 2
Mute while on reverse

Unit Of Temperatue
  • C
  • F
Navigation
If your desired navigation app is not listed then the appname has to be added at factory_config.xml -> <SupportNaviAppList>

System Ver: 10-8953EA
Storage: 21.53/32GB
RAM: 2GB
  • MCU Upgrade
  • System Recovery

Example how to read a MCU string:
Note: for Updating MCU files, any part of the string beside the Release date have to match !

MCU Ver: 02352dGS-CIC-GTL-DC-200805A
  • 02352 - Hardware string
  • dGS - Vendor / Hardware manufacturer, in this case GS
  • CIC - Target CAN Bus System , in this case CIC (can be E or F series)
  • GTL - Target Can Bus Speed system GTL = 100 kbits -> CCC/ E series CIC and some F series CIC (not 100% confirmed) , GTH = 500kbits -> F series NBT, NBT EVO
  • DC - Optional String DC or DC1 , DC does define HD Display = 1920x720px
  • 200805A - Release Date of String in YYMMDD format , 5th August 2020

The MCU Update Tool does check Vendor and Optional String, if this strings do match its possible to update the file.
It does NOT check CAN Bus System and Speed strings, don`t update to different Version unless you know what you do !

Android
This option does switch to Android settings.

Factory
To enter the Factory Settings you need to know the password,
The Factory Password is defined at factory_config.xml -> <password>1314</password>
Altough the file states that the password has to be 4-6 digits, also one digit does work.
It is not possible to disable the Password mask.

most common known passwords are:

      This setting is only visible when <car_manufacturer> is set to "2:Benz" at factory_config.xml

  • Car Display
    This screen is for selecting your OEM Display type.
    The main difference between different Models ist position correction of the Display itself, so if your OEM Screen is some pixels of you can also try a different car type display as long as Display aspect ratio do fit.
    "Halfscreen" Selection -> the OEM Display will be showed with correct aspect-ratio and a filler image will be displayed on the side
    "Fullscreen" Selection -> the OEM Display will streched to full screen

  • Can Protocol

    Depending on your factory_config.xml you can select 3-4 options.
    Select the one that fits your car most, there is no information of whats different between the settings
  • UI Configuration

    Depending on your factory_config.xml file you can select between different GUI`s
    If you want to have all GUI`s available best is to use the Full-Feature factory_config.xml file from 1st post.
  • Profile Import
    The version string is defined at factory_config.xml file <ver>GS-BMW-20200618.en</ver>

    • Import Configuration

I`m not at home at the moment.

I also have only a 2/32 GB Version, the file says it`s only compatible with 4/64 GB Version.

So, at beginning i start with analyzing the files :/

The file system structure is still the same, so i think the machine will already be pre-rooted again and we will only need to add SU again, but not sure yet.

Interested to see if we get new features, I know we are mostly interfacing with the KSW launcher and the Android OS is mostly in the background.
If we get new stuff thats awesome just hate to see it get slower like smartphones do after each upgrade if were not getting anything new.

Cant wait to see where this goes!

I can confirm root is working. Upgraded without problems. No data lost. All my apps are running like before.

Any new features? I would like to see a new IDx menu where we can customize which app to launch, and with live tiles. At least a tile for launching DAB.

Does iDrive still work globally?

Sound bug fixed?

I expect a lot of bugs, and since downgrade is not possible, I must rely on braver users.

Yes, same here, no bass sound, f*ck!

I don't know if the problem is with factory settings file, because all my settings are unchanged although i did a factory reset and also recovery method that i think that erase all settings.

Also tried recovery method to go back to Android 9 but no luck, you can't as i Already knew.

Also tried to import factory settings file but don't change any settings then is like isn't the importing isn't working.

Root is working.

We don`t know yet, as with all Android Threads here this is community driven, so members who are brave do try out new versions and report their findings
