  1. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    I've downloaded it, thanks! It's funny)) Folder inside of the "NAVIVUP" named as "AVICRZ09" on your RZ77 device Pioneer's engineers place same compiled Testmode.EXE on all devices and don't mind it))

    Hi DriveNSK, You are welcome) Can you share your FW with me (upload it to Google Drive for example)? I try to find tips and tricks of new WM-based AVICs firmwares. Thanx!
  3. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Hi All! FW backup instruction for AVIC-RZ09 (and similar devices - AVIC-RL09, AVIC-RW09, AVIC-RZ09, AVIC-RZ07, AVIC-RZ06, AVIC-RL05, AVIC-RZ05, AVIC-RW03, AVIC-RZ03): 1. Get SD card, FAT32-formatted. Probably the USB disk will work too, but I didn't check back up on USB. 2. Make the empty folder named "NAVIVUP" on SD card. 3. Power on the AVIC and place the SD card into AVIC device slot. 4. Go to in the Testmode (press and hold "NAVI" button, press each once right-left-right-left-right-left, release "NAVI" button - device restarted in test mode). 5. On the first screen - select menu "10. Program forced write", go to the next screen of this submenu (2 of 3) and select "3. Take out program". 6. Select destination "SD" or "USB" and press "MENU" for start downloading. 7. Wait for about minute while FW downloaded to SD/USD disk - with full-screen messages "!!NOW COPYING!!", while "HIT ANY KEY" message didn't appear. Profit) You can see the full-FW files on your SD/USB disk in the NAVIVUP folder. P.S.: Sorry guys but I cannot upload the screen-shots here, I see just "There was a problem uploading the file." message displayed. Alex
  4. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Hi DriveNSK, I didn't find any correct TESTMODE.KEY for now: a have tried a lot of variants from this site and others but every time saw an error message "TESTMODE.KEY is incorrect". But I can see the Test modes keywords inside of the file "Testmode.exe". I'm not sure what the correct TESTMODE.KEY will open the "Copy" and "Paste" commands, further, the device file manager didn't access to files which contains the strings for translation - all of them inside of the main FW file PS140PLT.PRG. WM6.x - yes, the device is Windows Mobile 6.x based, and I found tools to get/repack files of the FW (dumpromx for extract/replace files, fdf2reg and reg2fdf for registry "default.fdf" file changing). "Take out program" is one of the menu items on the second or third screen of the TestMode menu on my RZ-09. I can make a screenshot for you tomorrow. My device cannot connect to PC, for navigation updates synchronization uses the SD card (you need to prepare it on the device first and after it uses the Smartloop SW - it in Japanese only). Alex
  5. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Hi DriveNSK! I have AVIC RZ-09 and it looks very similar to RZ-77. I've spent about 2 weeks on investigations and for today I found: no easy way to make the device translation to English, but I think it possible by modding FW files I cannot find any similar model on the European market you can make the FW copy form the device easy - just use "Take out program" menu in test mode while SD-card inserted (FAT32 formatted, FW size about 500Mb) The folders structure looks like: NAVIVUP - AVICRZ09 -- APL -- DTV -- DTVDATA -- PALTFORM The FW and other internal data stored on the internal SD card. It is cyphered, I cannot make a copy under Win10 (I'll try to do it in *nix soon) The FW can be repacked using WM6.x tools and I'm trying to make the first patch to change time zone (Moscow std time instead of Japanese) Now I try to make repacked FW, but it is not too easy because for the payload of the main .PRG file (for RZ09 - PS140PLT.PRG) consists of unknown CRC checksum algorithm (for other FW files used plain CRC32B). May be DZO knows this secret Alex
