So I thought I'd share my experience with the unit so far.

First a few points towards the hardware itself:

* It does not recognize my steering wheel buttons and cannot map them

* The unit is not insulated enough which in the cold autumn and winter in Norway has resulted in me sitting the first 10 minutes of every morning resetting and rebooting the unit with the heater on max temperature just to heat up the unit to "bootable" temperature. My old WinCE based crappy unit had no problem with the cold, so I'm not sure this is a fault or feature.

* I cannot seem to be able to change what the hardware button for "Navi" launches, it would be more useful to have it launch my navigation app instead of the pretty much useless "GPS Test" app. Nice to test everything, but it's no navigation software per se.

So a bit about the software itself:

* Kitkat running pretty much smooth after the unit has gotten to the right temperature, but until it does, some apps crashes due to the internal memory not running properly in cold temperatures.

* As mentioned about the hardware, the software to map hardware buttons on my steering wheel has no reaction pressing the buttons on the screen, but I suppose it would if it could see the button I'm pressing.

* Great choice with Nova Launcher, tried a few others, but I've settled with Nova on all my Android devices now, sow that's a plus. However the GUI itself should've had a selection of gui sizes. Some apps cannot display their popups properly due to the text being so big. :)

This is what I've come up with so far. Other than that, it's pretty awesome, I've hooked it up to two headrest monitors in the backseat so my kids can enjoy stuff while we're driving.

Here's a shot of my unit as it sits today.

+Ashwin Guru any progress on the ROM, binaries and stuff? Getting a bit sick and tired of the "insufficient space" notion on upgrading my apps.. :)

So will we have some lollipop candy on our devices? :)

Got a few pointers to the hardware, but I'm not done completing all the cabling, so I will review it later this month.. :)

"Later this month" became "next year" I guess. I'll make a new post.

My old Eee Tab TF101 still going strong with the Katkiss ROM and Nova Laucher. Here with Heracon iconpack and Xposed module for the Lollipop nav keys.

I got the crazy idea that enabling ART could help me with some apps from Play Store FC'ing..

That was not the case. Now I'm stuck in boot loop, and with no way of resetting..

How do I get into recovery and do a factory reset?

All help and tips are welcome.. :-)

Lesson learned, if it kinda works, don't kinda fix it..

Hi there! Just started using your wonderful launcher last week on both my SGS3 and Nexus 4. On my N4 today I downloaded a theme for CM10.1 (Android 4.2.2) and that kinda broke the text on the quickdrawer. Now I know that this is the theme's fault applying some dark text where it shouldn't, but is there a way for you to force this text as white instead?

I just thought, since the background is either tinted, holo dark or black, white text is what you should've forced on there anyway.. :)

Updated the layout a bit today with new icons and blowed them up a few percent in size. Perfect size now to use while I'm on the road.

For those who didn't see my previous post a while back, this is my In-Dash.net Android 4.4 powered car stereo.

My In-Dash.net car stereo running Nova Launcher with Stamped White Icons (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uppack.stampedwhite) and my own geek-ish wallpaper. No transitions, no fancy schmancy stuff, just clean. :)

By the way, after this picture was taken, the Plex-icon-text and the app drawer icon switched places. :)

Ok, not sure if that's possible, haven't had the time to dive into the settings that much yet as it works out of the box with my active sound system.. :)

Will the In-Dash get Android 4.4?

Awesome! I cannot find any info on dual zone on the In-Dash. Does it have that? Meaning secondary display that can show something else rather than the main screen?
