Installation

Copy the downloaded apk to Zidoo’s Download folder or a USB stick. Goto Media Center and select the apk to install.

Components of the user interface

There are 5 application icons on the UI and all can be customized, each icon needs to prepare two pictures for selected status and unselected status.

Unselected status

Selected status

Unselected icons (200 x 200px) are named as:

1_normal.png
2_normal.png
3_normal.png
4_normal.png
5_normal.png

Selected icons (200 x 200px) are named as:

1_selected.png
2_selected.png
3_selected.png
4_selected.png
5_selected.png

There are 5 background images (1920 x 1080px), move cursor will change background images. Background images are named as:

1_background.png
2_background.png
3_background.png
4_background.png
5_background.png

Status icons on the right-bottom corner are named as:

icon_bluetooth.png
icon_ethernet.png
icon_storage.png
icon_wifi.png

The Title, Subtitle and APP icons are corresponded one by one. Create the config.txt file below, texts marked with green can all be replaced.

{
	"apps": [
		{
			"title"    : "MEDIACENTER", 
			"subtitle" : "File Manager", 
			"package"  : "com.zidoo.fileexplorer"    
		},
		{
			"title"    : "POSTERWALL", 
			"subtitle" : "Perfection For Movie Experience", 
			"package"  : "com.zidoo.poster"
		},
		{
			"title"    : "MUSICPLAYER", 
			"subtitle" : "Enjoy The Melody", 
			"package"  : "com.zidoo.audioplayer"
		},
		{
			"title"    : "APPS", 
			"subtitle" : "Find More Applications", 
			"package"  : "APPS"
		},
		{
			"title"    : "SETTING", 
			"subtitle" : "Personalization", 
			"package"  : "com.android.quick.settings"
		}
	]
}

Create a folder named “Launcher”, sub-folder in it named “res”, put all images and the config.txt into this sub-folder. Then copy the “Launcher” folder into the Root Directory of a USB stick. Connect this USB stick with your Zidoo Player and wait custom UI is recognized by Zidoo automatically in about 1 minute.

How to recover the default Zidoo user interface?

Settings > Apps > CIUICAncer APP > Long press “OK” button to “Clear Data”.

Note:

  • If you are not satisfied with the custom UI, it can be re-customize by the guidance above.
  • If UI hasn’t been replaced successfully, please unplug other USB sticks or hard drives and try again.
