Lost ZLINK app after a factory restore

My android head unit was getting slow so I did a factory restore to try to clear out the old accumulated junk that had been building up over the years?

It all restored ok, with the expeption of ZLINK app. It didn't restore. :evil:

Is there any way to get it back, is it hidden somewhere in the system and not revenging itself to me>? :x

Hello :D

You can get the ZLINK app in the form of an .apk file from any of the reputable android market places.

This one come up on google:

https://apkcombo.com/zlink/com.zjinnova ... wnload/apk

and this one is 2nd

https://techzapk.net/zlink.htm


Pick one. Be aware that these stores are not PlayStore so they are not poilced by google, but rather by the sites themselves that want to keep a good reputation.


Put the zlink.apk file on your android, either downloaded directly or on a USB memory stick,

Next you need to get an APK installer app from PlayStore.


Let the APK installer program install and allow any permissions when you use it to 'Sideload' the ZLINK.APK file you have on your headunit.


The APK installer app will do the job of installing the program to the headunit.


You should now have your ZLINK icon back on the home screen, or at least on the list of apps.


There is a write-up about sideloading apks on the Android Headunits, here.
