  1. VERINFO.DAT.zip hey guys sorry for the long delay, may be 5 years too late, but here it is - v7 (2017) update VERINFO.DAT
  2. to check the update matches the manifest you can probably run something like this: #!/usr/bin/perl # # parses ALLDATA.VER manifest # lists files, sizes, and verifies crc32b # use Digest::CRC; my $crc = Digest::CRC->new(type=>"crc32"); my $filename = "ALLDATA.VER"; if (@ARGV) { $filename = $ARGV[0]; } open(my $fh, $filename) or die "can't open $filename"; binmode($fh); ## check file crc # get crc from end seek($fh, -4, 2); my $filecrcpos = tell($fh); read($fh, my $filecrcraw, 4); my $filecrc = unpack("L", $filecrcraw); # check actual crc of file seek($fh, 0, 0); read($fh, my $
  3. to see the structure of the cardinfo.cif, you can run this command (linux/mac) on cardinfo and see where the model codes are placed. I think they can be anywhere in the middle as long as they are on these 6 letter boundaries. Seems like there is alot of obfuscation there. sed -e 's/#Pionee//' -e 's/....../&\n/g' CARDINFO.cif
  4. cardinfo.cif is just signalling unit that there is an update on the SD card. I dont think it has versioned information. I do know that there are some special fields at char position 16 and 17. I think they are normally ascii "00" and can be 01, etc but I dont recall exactly what those are used for. Regarding the rest of the cardinfo, starting at about the 20th char, and every group of 6 chars after that, there could be the model codes that were discussed before. This goes on through much of the rest of the file, and then there may be some other section towards the end of the file, again
  5. you can use the same VERINFO.DAT they used in the 2015 European Map Update thread.
  6. If some was to post an archive/zip of the complete update sdcards, I'm certain that someone on this forum could be smart enough to figure out how to unlock it
  7. it's only for Z140 hardware - it's not tied to the application/platform software version 5.x, which can be applied to all 110 series
  8. after you have 2013/5.0 installed, get the 5.1 update from pioneer site for z140 and install that. take the navi.exe from the 5.1 update, mod it, then put it on usb or sd with testmode.key, and use file maintenance (file manager) to copy over to your unit. recall that if USER/PRG.FLG is present the unit is booting sw in USER/PRG1 instead of USER/PRG0 recall that you will need to delete target navi.exe before copying…
  9. navi.exe - to get rid of nag screen… updated post it's theoretically possible to pre-mod the file, and use the update mechanism to deploy it.. You would need to edit the EU090APL.VER file which is a "manifest" of files included in the update(including maybe size, but crc32 i think). I recall posting what I discovered in some other threads long ago, but it's too much work when you can just redeploy the patched file through testmode or testmode script after you do the 2013 update, then the 5.1 update. PS for the 5.1 update one can remove the TESTMODE.KEY and FIRMWARE
  10. re: getting rid of nag screen On 5.1 firmware (available for Z140 - but the application update portion can be applied to any unit upgraded to 2013/5.0 - I just applied to my Z130) Navi.exe at offset BE9A4 (version 5.1): change 05 00 00 0A to 00 00 A0 E1 update: just verified this is working
  11. regarding CARDINFO.cif and which values it needs to ahve in it in order for your unit to recognize an update: see one of my old posts on this... I'm not entirely sure those are all accurate, but you could experiment.. http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/35293-challenge-restoring-vr-on-x930bt-and-friends/&do=findComment&comment=257674 all the cardinfo.cif file does is signal your device that there is an update on the sd that it should look at.
  12. wow, people trying to make money illegally off of pioneer Doubt if this is a legal version. I bet 100 dollars that they are using my supereasy method with my verinfo.dat from 2013 EU update. That is sad because it was only ever meant for legal owners to have an alternate install method, not for people to pirate and sell illegally on ebay.
  13. can you delete the SECURITY.DAT if you are using my testmode-x50v2 then it shoudl be possible.. sorry i dont know for this model, i cant help more
