  1. Remove that file (\NAND\SYSTEM\SECURITY\SECURITY.DAT) and the password will go away. Just to be safe, copy it somewhere first.
  2. So you had a backup with /USER, including PRG0 and PRG1? That's good. I'd keep that SD in a safe place. One thing I forgot to mention. After a firmware update, if something isn't working - try disconnecting all power to the unit for 30 seconds. Easiest way is to disconnect the battery. Alternatively, pull the fuses for both the yellow and red power wires. For an F920, I believe v2 was the original stock firmware. If so, the files in PRG0 and PRG1 should be identical. One thing you could try is to change the "current" program directory. You do this by adding or deleting (if already present) /USER/PRG.FLG (an empty file is OK - or just create a file on your PC named PRG.FLG and copy it to the F9220. Then reboot and see if it loads OK. At that point it would be running the backup version. If it doesn't load OK, there is something wrong with the currently active PRG files or an issue with the physical storage. Either way, you could try installing 2017 maps (after running shortfuse if necessary). Unless you are not running stock Pioneer firmware or there is some hardware problem, this should work.
  3. First, get an 8GB SD and make a backup of /USER so you can recover from any mistakes. Also, if you have the original SD that you used to install the Shortfuse hack, save it. It would have the original APL\RenewalIFLib.dll files found in PRG0 and PRG1. Next, when you said "avic-f9220bt. v2.0", I assume you mean your old firmware was v2.0. At first I thought you were saying there was a V2 hardware. I also assume that F9220bt is the same hardware as f920bt. What do you mean by "used test mode to use backup"? Did it boot back into the old firmware OK? I don't have an answer to why V7.0 isn't running. I don't know much about the F series in general and the F9220bt in particular. But I think there must of been some other changes/hacks made on your unit.
  4. If you ran it in 2017, it wrote the hacked RenewalIFLib.dll file in PRG0/APL and PRG1/APL. Only one of those files got overwritten by the 2017 update. When you install an update, it overwrites the "non-active" PRGn files with the new update's files. Then it makes the new PRGn the active directory by setting or deleting /USER/PRG.FLG. So I'd guess the hack needs to be installed again since the non-hacked one is in the "active" PRGn/APL However, that's all just theory. No one that I know of has even tried the hack with 2019. So I guess we'll find out soon.
  5. HackMode 2.2 remove F930BT 2015

    Why not just install the 2017 update? As for 2015, you can use the av.exe from the US/Canada version. The program files are identical. I have it for US. See attached zip. Av.zip
  6. HackMode 2.2 remove F930BT 2015

    I never recommend using hack mode because you have a 50% chance to having this problem. Someone who uses hackmode should bee able to help you uninstall it. But your original issue with the keyboard probably was because the parking brake was not detected.
  7. To install the hack? A few seconds. If your question is about installing the map update, it belongs in the map update thread. Should take around 20-30 minutes.
  8. You might try re-pairing the BT connection first. Sometimes it is necessary to do a hard restart after a bluetooth upgrade. Simple surefire way is to disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Or, if you know both fuses that power the radio, you can just pull them. If that doesn't fix it then try older BT firmware. maybe even re-installing 3.32.
  9. Sorry, I don't know anything about the F960DAB. Did you try this method? http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/83592-security-password-removal-script-for-z110120130140-x920930940-some-older-f-series/&do=findComment&comment=348733
  10. The Reverse wire should be in the Power Connector, pin 11. Power Plug
  11. Did you try just Step 3? You should be able to update directly from V1.x to V7.0 (after installing the Shortfuse hack).
  12. So are you saying that you have already installed 2019 on the F40BT and you want to also install it on the F10BT? If so, try this cardinfo. Cardinfo for F10 and F20
  13. No, I'm not sure since I don't have an F-series. Just an educated guess. Every other update since 2010 (that's when I bought my Z110-BT), the maps were the same. The cardinfo.cif file controls what models get updated. If the cardinfo isn't correct for your headunit, nothing will happen when you insert the SD. Note that it isn't just the map files that get updated. The application files also change. However, there is a minor difference between the various models. Just to be clear: What is the Product number for the map update you have? To see, go to the unzipped file folder and open UPDATE/ALLDATA.HTM What actual AVIC model are you trying to install it on. The MY nonsense just gets people confused. Most don't even know what MY is. Your photo shows an F40BT, is that your unit?
  14. You can just use the cardinfo for your model from the 2017 update.
  15. Good eyes. That just shows as a blurry smudge on my monitor. Zooming in two levels and I can just barely see something that resembles AVIC-F40BT. I'll stay out of this unless things get out-of-control. I don't have any use for EU maps regardless.
