Toon firmware resource file (as from 4.16.8)

Hi all,

Normally all Toon apps are stored in the folder /qmf/qml/apps/… in plain text.
However, starting with firmware 4.16.8 they have put the whole qui in so called 'resource files', individual apps and files cannot be accessed anymore.
These resources files cannot be tampered with, making it impossible to make changes to the qml code, changes to Globals.qml etc.
At least, that is the idea of a Qt resource file.

Nonetheless, TheHogNL and I are happy to present you a replacement resource file with the following changes compared to the original:

1. by default all custom apps will be loaded from /qmf/qml/apps/ at startup.
Globals.qml is not used anymore for that purpose. If you don't want an app anymore, remove it from the apps folder
2. network issue notifications are disabled (e.g. no notification that you are not connected to the service centre)
3. the waste collection thermostat mod is included (you will need 'Afvalwijzer' app version 4.1 (or higher) from the ToonStore for the mod to work)
4. the room temperature is shown in 0.1 degree resolution instead of the standard 0.5 degree resolution
5. the new resource file is smaller, but in this case 'less is more' ;-)
6. whole screen width is used for systray icons instead of just half the screen
7. the settings screen has a new item: TSC (Toon Software Collective :D )
here you can configure the rotating tiles mod as well as hide the Toon logo.
More mods to come in the future here.....

Installation instruction:
- Make a backup of the original resource file: /qmf/qml/resources-static-base.rcc and /qmf/qml/resources-static-ebl.rcc
- Download the new resource files here: Resource files

Toon 1 users:
Select the right version for your firmware: resources-qb2-<firmware version number>.zip
- Unzip the file and place 'resources-static-base.rcc' (Toon) and 'resources-static-ebl' (Boxx) in the folder /qmf/qml/

Toon 2 users:
Select the right version for your firmware: resources-nxt-<firmware version number>.zip
- Unzip the file and place 'resources-static-base.rcc' (Toon) and 'resources-static-ebl' (Boxx) in the folder /qmf/qml/

And now the update script (from version 2.9) also supports 4.16.8. It will (when choosing the fix option in the end) download the necessary resources file.

Nice job, but for now I will stay on the old firmware that one works great for me.
Maybe for the future I will upgrade the Toon, but for now I will stay on the old one.

That is a good choice. I would suggest only for the real die hard testers to go to 4.16.8 as you might encounter some issue's and there is nothing to gain there.

I for one haven't updated my production Toon yet. Only the one I use for testing is on 4.16.8

Yes, just install as usual. You don't need to edit globals.qml. All custom apps present in.. /qml/apps/. will be loaded when the gui starts. You can install via Toonstore or manually.

one comment: keep the app folder names in lower case only.

Hi all,

I edited the first post with a link to version 2 of the resource file.
This has all goodies from version 1 plus makes the whole screen width available for the systray, instead just half the screen in the standard firmware

This is relevant if you have many apps from the Toonstore installed and systray icons will move into a second row behind the thermostat.
This fix will keep them all on the top row.

Kind regardz,

Toonz

Uhh how hard is it too create a resource file for 4.18.8? :oops: :oops:
Toon told me there was a update (strange enough) so I updated that through the update-rooted script.
There was no problem except the resource file of 4.16.8 is not working. :|

And yes I know it's stupid. :mrgreen:

A new resource file is just published http://files.domoticaforum.eu/uploads/T ... 4.18.8.zip

This is however without the wase collection mod (so no big waste collection icon in the homescreen near to the temperature)

in Dim-screen; Left Top.

it says "TOON"
I replaced that PNG file with a Empty file. (i don't like the TOON in dimscreen).

I guess that's in the resource file now?
Any chance we can empty it there?
