Thank you!!

Testing BlueTooth hands free today!!


Edit: no joy, unable to use google assistant for hands free operation via blue tooth devices.
tested with shield remote and two different models of helmet blue tooth systems.

It is good news!
I have tested the resolutions. Resolutions work fine, UI works too.
But navbar move to right vertically. If I reduce the dpi, the navbar returns, but everything becomes too small and it is impossible to use the touchscreen.
How to use horizontal navbar with big dpi like 360-400? We need large UI scale for car touchscreen usage.
It will be good if navbar move to left side, not right. Right side is good for Japan or England with right-hand driving :smile:

Also, I have the 800x480 display, but I cannot see this resolution on list, but list contains unsupported resolutions like 1024x768, 1280x800.
How to see full list of resolutions?


Hello, @Terry
I join the question @davemf . I also have a matrix with a resolution of 800x480, and I would very much like to see it in the list

Thank you for new release.

I tried enable native ui.
It looks very nice, but the screen is split near the center and the display is mirrored.
Is this a bug?

Thanks for your feedback. It’s a 4k native UI bug, and i will fix it on next release rom.

Could you tell me please how to see full list of resolutions?

There are two 2560x1080 displayed in the list.

I’m going to select any one of them, and it doesn’t make any difference.

In fact, the output is still 1920x1080.

The ICONS are still stretched into cuboids, and KODI is still unable to show the film in full screen at 21:9.

When the NATIVE UI is selected, the icon display proportion is normal.

But the image position is wrong.

Oddly enough, KODI was right to play the film.

Terry confirmed there was a problem, promised to fix it

I hope the SWITCH OS button can be added in the next firmware.
I need to switch the SD card system frequently.

Hello superceleron’s ROMs have the OS switch feature, if I recall correctly.
Normal Pie.
ATV Pie.

Yes, The Celeron ROM has the SWITCH OS button.

It’s very convenient.

Since I want to use VESA resolution, I’m also looking forward to celeron making a firmware that supports VESA resolution.

in a near future :slight_smile:


Was there ever a fix for 2560x1080 still being stretched (and when native UI was enabled, I get the same black bars overlay as RRZC777)

Hii @Terry

Can I do this with my latest AOSP build?
I need to implement this with VIM3 android Pie AOSP.

About how to build the Android Pie firmware by yourself. You can refer to this

@Terry On this build ublox 7 and ublox 9 don’t function correctly once movement starts. USB GPS does the same on Lineage for the Raspberry Pi 4 on android 11. I’m guessing they are using similar GPS HAL code?

Youtube Video of the malfunction when in motion…
GPS in motion

Was able to to solve issue with Lineage on Raspberry Pi by using this HAL(Except the gps time is reported wrong). There may be other problems with it also but it at least works.
Whale gps Hal

Will you be able to fix this in your build @Terry ?

Thank you very much for your time.

I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the gps signal strength in your car
