  1. Hi yes this is weird. I'm not so familiar that I no whats going on. But it is still boot looping unless I type bsp init. Then it seems to run a script, sorts itself out and brings up the software error on the radio screen. Putty then goes blank. Typing warp when it boots brings the error 'no mmc'. So i tried adding a new blank sdcard in the user slot, but no change. (could it be looking for update / firmware ? ) I also tried putting the original factory sdcard back in but no change. Also I noticed that the screen wont open now by the buttons. So may have some loose ribbons or co
  2. OK, Im making progress. I can type now and it pauses window data ;-) I tried easyrecovery - nothing. Tried bsp init and it had some effect. (below) Now I have no boot loop but have the standard software error - contact pioneer service center. :-( Does that mean I need new sdcard ?

  3. Guys i've been at this for hours. Although Im nearly blind now staring at those tiny holes, I've remade connections and data is nice and clean now. Thanks for the tip. But still not sending commands. I press keys as soon as pwr to radio and keep pressing but nothing opens. If I click open 1st then turn on radio I get data, but still nothing happens when I press keys. I've checked and rechecked all pins. over and over. I've also searched for an older version of PuTTy as I noticed the images here dont match the one I have. I will have a search & read for an alternative unless there
  4. Good afternoon. I got the settings thanks. Problem was cheap usb - serial device. I think it fried somehow?? Anyhow, got new one yesterday and installed PuTty on another better laptop. Still win 11 tho :-( result was exactly the same. I tried with settings window open -> turned on radio. Nothing. Opened Putty after setting as above and then get uboot window. tried everything to add command, pressed keys / space bar etc as soon as radio turned on and always the same. I dont get all the data that other posts have shown before it reloops. But Im pasting below a coupl
  5. Hi, thanks for advice. I tried all night but now something isnt working right. As soon as i click open on Putty, (without radio switched on) im getting a new window with streams of data garbage, that looks like upside down U's. Obviously tried connections etc. If I switch on radio (before I click open) nothing happens. I think the usb things shagged. I'll get another one. Quick Q's, as I've not done this before, is U-boot a menu? in the radio. I searched the web but could only find referance to android boot options.
  6. Hello, I'm posting here in this old thread rather than make a new one as my question / request relates to this topic. My unit an F60dab I'm trying to restore is boot looping still after failed update. After many months looking I now have a new sdcard (internal) with new firmware -incase!! Trouble is because bloody unit is looping I've been advised unit needs to be ' reset ' via PuTTy via a usb - serial connection. I've done all this and at times I can see lots of data, similar to those in posts above. But for the life of me, despite reading through PuTTy help / info, I cannot figure
  7. Following on from this post, it is no farther forward. Like many have discovered now including myself that this site is all but dead. I have been looking on here for weeks waiting for replies, going over very old posts, following suggestions and then trying to download various links to old uploaded files now all but obsolete. You have to wonder where did everyone go ? Retired, new projects, new developments, new sites. I'm also guessing the russian invasion of Ukraine has diverted the interests of many posters from that part of the world. But if anyone reading this does happen t
  8. Hi guys, looking for help on an old f60dab. Sorry it's a bit of a long post but here's what happened so far... I realise most users here have moved on, as I once did. I hope someone may be left who can throw some advice my way. But at the very least pls read this as a warning. After screwing up a good mates 8 year old f60dab by failed updating? I have gone through many of the old posts of days gone by to try and remember what to do. I also tried to download relevant files to assist but sadly nearly all links dead or fail to download. I keep trying. However with my mate scr
  9. As most of the posts on this forum are pre- stone age, ie 2010 would anyone know of a up to date list of models released and where they fit in terms of development. There has been a huge changes in the shift from win ce to android and possibly other formats. But equally lots of changes to pioneer units themselves. Do any even come with cd / dvd anymore. I know very few sold today even have built in navigation. What always confused me, especially now in 2023 is what series do all the 'newer' units fit, if any. (my personal answer would be c.rap ) but there may some models OK ?? S
  10. Wow, and wow again. Reading back it seems like one or two really clever developers knew their stuff discovered the holy grail and made great strides. But here in the future (2023), It's like the clever scientists back then discovered the true meaning of life, shouted out a few instructions for a while and then left the rest of the human race to fend for itself without a manual. As much as I appreciated all the hard work, commitment and support from these clever people in keeping my unit working and updated, sadly I couldnt keep up with the understanding and conflicting procedures and
  11. Hello, similar problem. Both the unit AND me. I'm guessing we're the last handful of people now using forum. So glad its still here. Thanks guys / girls? who run it. Was a god send in days gone by, hope it still is. . The unit is a mates f60 DAB. I did an update with an sdcard. problem was sdcard goes in behind the screen which flips down. Update failed and bloody screen wouldnt flip. So kept booting and (trying) to install > failed > restarted. Nightmare. Took unit out, removed screen to get card out. Now unit starts but only has splash logo. Then blank. I've tried agai
  12. I am shocked these head units are still in use AND sold in 2023. Looking at repairing a failed update for a friend who couldnt wait. So we looked at buying a replacement. EVERY unit available in 2 large halford stores was the carplay / android auto rubbish. Not a single unit, some were close to 500 quid, had built in navigation. Pioneer are taking the P. big time. They wont even need to update maps before long as so few units even have them. Bigger are the fools that plug in their phones and know no better.
  13. I just tried installing but it didnt work. All it did was open up in windows screen (test mode?) Anything else I should do? Update tried again and got menu this time. Installed and works great. Still going thru all the options n menus but wt an improvement. Luv it, thank you
  14. I've got a whole image I got from here about 2 yrs ago. It was modded and works great to this day. Still using it but must be well out of date by now. Also igo routing engine seriously p1sses me off sometimes Im just looking at upgrading but soo many choices, versions, maps mods, I dont no where to begin. But if interested and If someone can direct me to how / where I can upload Ill gladly help.
