  1. Your question intrigues me... Do you mean that you can dump an image of the operating system? I just got the AVIC-6200NEX. I am will to give it a shot if you could point me in the right direction. Is there a tutorial or how-to available? I am on it, if so...



    Yep that is correct! There are a group of us working to see if we can modify it. (Which is possible, you just lose WARP!)  However a cross-upgrade may be possible depending on what changed.  If you follow WhatIsWhatIsWhatIsWhat's instructions you can backup the OS and upload it for us to examine and try on older units.

  2. Yes, it can be done, but like the linked listing says at the bottom, Bluetooth doesn't work, which also makes Android Auto unusable. So the whole upgrade is a non-starter for now unfortunately. 




    So yes. I actually think that the issue is not bluetooth but an audio volume level issue. It's possible the amp volume names changed not he hardware revision.

  3. Any update on the nex4000 to nex4100 android radio fix or and thing I need to know before updating. I'm still on



    Nope. The issue seems to stem from how the deck routes audio. It uses a library to communicate to the radios amp. And it seems between the x000 and x100 the radio amp turn on command changed.  So until we can manipulate the Amp commands a cross-upgrade is dead if you care about actually getting audio.

  4. Are we able to use Android Auto on the AVIC-5100NEX now? It was the one unit that for whatever reason Pioneer chose not to support it on.



    No you can't that is actually a limitation from Google. unlike CarPlay Google has restrictions on the screen size that Android Auto is supported on which is why it is not on the AppRadio 4 too.

  5. Could you give a quick how-to on how to sideload apps on the 8100NEX/F77DAB ? I don't know about y'all, but for me if I can run Play Music and Maps/Waze I don't need more than that.


    You can not side load apps without disabling WARP.


    WARP is what makes the deck boot in under 10 sec. Without it you are looking at a close to 2-3 min boot time overtime you start the deck like a regular android phone. Right now there are some people working on creating a new WARP snapshot after you modify the deck but so far it likes to brick devices.

  6. *****iGO (Sort Of Easy) Map Updater*****


    Hi all!


    With the announcement of the map crack by asd255 http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81468-the-avic-development-mod/?p=337784 we needed a good way to actually update the maps!


    With the help of various members (if you want to be named let me know), we have created a script that will install the needed iGO patch and install the maps that you have obtained.   


    NOTE: This requires use of the perl command line on your computer to generate the required script.





    1. Download the attached MapPackage.zip

    2. Unzip the file into its own folder. (For our purposes we will call it MapPackage)

    3. Download the respective iGO Patch for your deck from http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81468-the-avic-development-mod/?p=337784

    4. Extract the contents EXCEPT Copy_Script.sh into your MapPackage Folder.

    5. Inside the updates folder in the MapPackage folder place all the map files you would like to add. It should like this (except different iGO patch files):



    6. Open a Terminal/CommandPrompt Window

    7. Cd to the MapPackage Folder

    8. Execute perl MapCreator.pl  This will generate a script that will copy and set the right permissions on the map file you want to update.

    9. Copy the contents of the MapPackage Folder to the root of a blank FAT32 USB Drive.

    10. Put the usb stick in USB Port 1

    11. Boot the deck

    12. Navigate and select Write Programs Forcedly

    13. Select Copy_Script

    14. When it is done, remove the USB Stick and hit the middle center button.

    15. Enjoy the new maps!!!




  7. Im not having much luck getting it into test mode with any of the the keys that are in the share you provided. I just need a FAT32 drive and place one of the files ( TESTMODE_N.key) on the root - correct?


    So each of the keys boot a different mode. There is one key that will load the recovery mode with a corrupted internal sd card. I forgot which one it is. But here is a repo I created with scripts to create test keys and the explanation on them. https://github.com/bassrock/AVIC-NEX

  8. Actually you can. I installed nova launcher and other stuff no problem. Again there are two things, no usb wifi support and you have to have warp disabled.


    You can also change the button mapping on the front of the deck too by changing the keymap files.

  9. Hmmm, is there any way to run Google Maps or another Android launcher on the 8000-NEX?


    If you can install Xposed it seems like you could easily install a different launcher?

    Actually you can. I installed nova launcher and other stuff no problem. Again there are two things, no usb wifi support and you have to have warp disabled.

  10. I used the "copy" option in TestMode assuming I was copying the internal SD to my USB so it would be easier to look at the file structue on the MAC.


    I believe that mode actually does the reverse of what you were trying to accomplish. I recommend opening up your unit and replacing the internal SD Card with a new one that has the appropriate image.

  11. Dat sounds like an AA device-side volume issue. The unit ain't commanding d volume to raise up and touch the roof. Whatchawanna do is, on a rooted device, use ALSAMixer, find the proper volume, and raise it. There are about 100 volumes for Android, yo.



    Interesting ok. I will do a cross upgrade and see what this comes up with later tonight.
