  3. 5201NEX Help please;

    Can you guys/gals please provide me with the steps and data I need to get into my 5201NEX & delete / figure out my password. My avic-5201NEX is NOT running the latest version of firmware. & the back story for all you forum lovuhhhs! I bought my avic -5201NEX a few months back, as I know Some of you have read this a million times.... I locked myself out of my 5201 when I unplugged my battery & was prompted for the password to get back in that I have tried to guess for hours (which I don’t understand I use a series of password for everything and none of them work so i must have been in a strange mood I guess that day lol) anyways what I am hoping and asking is simple for an experienced user on this forum, I have only been on it recently in the hopes of being able to access my headunit again without having to send it back to fricken pioneer and wait 4-6 weeks for it to come back. Anyways that’s it long story short, I’m going to continue searching and piecing together the data I can but I would TRUELY appreciate someone taking a couple mins to link the files needed , or even just write the steps and tell me what files to look for , Thank you again in advance look foward to speaking with you
  4. I'm putting this in the "off- topic" section because there isnt a specific section here that talks about the vh series and also i don't want anyone getting mad at me for spamming this topic in an unrelated section. Anyways, I Imported a car from japan, it will be here within a few days. it has the AVIC - VH9990 installed. I know its only in japanese but this will be my quest/journey to translating it into english and hopefully load a canadian map. This is probably impossible, but with a little bit of coding, dumping the stock files here, and maybe some help from one of you guys it could be possible. Also this is here so that everyone who has this model and wants to know if it can or cant in fact be translated will get the concise answer they are looking for (and for asking questions too of course) be expecting the files here within the next couple of days, along with my first attempt at finding a way to translate this

  6. AVIC-MRZ02

    Hello there i have a Pioneer Carrozzeria AVIC-MRZ02 and i want to change the language from Japanese to English. Any of you guys are able to help me?
  7. Hello All, First post here...so let me know if this needs to go somewhere else. TL;DR: I got my unit to boot back into the OS after step 3 of this thread, but it still fails to update the firmware when I try. My 7000NEX was still running FW version 1.012. I decided to update the firmware to 1.15. I downloaded the file, read the instructions, formatted the flash drive, turn off AV source...basically tried to be a good boy and follow the instructions. My unit read the USB key, notified me that I was upgrading from 1.012 to 1.15...I confirmed by clicking on Continue. I was eventually prompted to reset the device, which I did, but when I reset it, I disconnected both the ACC and PWR wires. Upon powering back on, it went to a screen that said "Reading...", then to a screen saying "Update Failed!" "Press HOME to continue" At this point...I got stuck. I tried multiple flash drives, redownloaded the file from pioneer's website...All I could get it to do was say "Update Progress,,," and "version 1.01 to 1.01" even though my USB key had the 1.15 firmware on it, then it would go back to "Update Failed!" Anyway, I decided to dig deeper and try to find a custom ROM that I could hopefully just push onto this thing and found this thread. Obviously this is a treasure trove of information but I'm still stuck. From that thread, I followed steps 1, 2, and 3...(e.g. backup my NOR, BSP, and SD Card) using the Script Mode instructions. After step three though, my unit FINALLY BOOTED BACK UP INTO THE OS!!!! At first I was super ecstatic and thought "Great! Now I can try to update my firmware again and not make the same mistake!". WRONG... Now when I go through the instructions, and try to update the firmware...I get to the confirmation screen, it shows the right firmware jump, but it immediately goes to a "Update Failed!" screen again as soon as I confirm. I haven't tried other FW versions like 1.06, 1.08, 1.10, 1.14...though I do have the files. I'm just trying to figure out what I should do next? In the Test Mode that the USB key from the linked thread, there are functions like Write Bootloader, Write Programs, etc... and i'm wondering if I can use those to clear or fix whatever's still corrupt under the hood to allow any firmware update? Anyone have any clues?
  8. Just looking for map options to update. Also any firmware or software upgrades
  9. I have loaded up my hard drive with music, movies, and audio books. Aside from the horrible way that it reads and lists files and folders, it works ok. Meaning i can scroll through them, hit the button for audio/video and it "works" Problem is that I get no video on the head end unit. (Yes I have Bypassed it and DVD's work perfect while driving) Funny thing is when playing a movie (AVI format) the sound works great and it plays on the rear screens both on the Mirror and USB1 or USB2 setting for the rear. It does not play video on the head end......... Any suggestions? All i get is the background on the main screen. It also does the same thing when the back screens are off by the way, sound only no video on the screen. Made for a great trip for the kids, sucked for me and my wife....... thanks
  10. Does anyone know how to get map update for the Pioneer AVIC-f860bt ?
  11. Good morning, I have a AVIC-F960BT, his work's nromally, but I don't insert the password because the touchscreen doesn't calibrate, and I need to acess the supertest mode to calibrate it. I post video in youtube about problem (link: ).
  12. I discovered that my F920BT worked perfectly and didn't restart (reboot) when I started the car. It never had updated the firmware, but today I updated the firmware to the latest version (2.00300) published by Pioneer. My surprise was that after the firmware update my AVIC F520BT restarts (reboot) when I turn on my car. How can I do a downgrade to know if the error is the firmware ???? Has someone had the same error ???? Thanks.
  13. Backups and Images

    I wanted to start a thread of backup files for our stock units and any modified images. If this forum has helped you at all, contribute with your backups as a big thank you! State full Make/Model of your NEX unit, which firmware version installed at the time of backup, and which files are being uploaded. Here's my submission: Pioneer AVIC 6100NEX, firmware version 1.5 NOR Flash and BSP backup: http://bit.ly/2cLq29d Internal SD card backup: http://bit.ly/2k5Y6fz *Update* Working on getting a new set of files up, these might be corrupt. Standby... *Update 2* New files uploaded, enjoy!
  14. Hello. I"ve got avic f-130 in my motorhome. There were instaled AutoMapa (it's polish navigation software).

Any ideas? Sorry for my English.
  15. Anyone have any idea where I can find a power and wire harness for the D2? Or is this model compatible with another unit. Thanks
  16. AVIC-F960BT=AVIC-5000NEX

    Ladies and gentlemen, I live in Brazil, have a media center, AVIC-F960BT is the same AVIC-5000NEX. I'm calling in various forums in Brazil and here in this forum, to see if anyone of you have the backup of the central image avic-5000nex, which also serves to avic-f960bt that I need to save my unit, having It happened a disaster in an update, as can be seen in this image. Please people, I need to regain my center.
  17. Hello, everyone. I have an Avic f900bt and it's been 3 years since I have had a properly working unit. I have tried so many different techniques throughout the years including going into test mode and downloading the hybrid 4.01 files, but I kept receiving a errors. I have also tried deleting the gps.para files and doing a reboot, but it still did not work. I have had this problem for 3 years and I just cant take it anymore! I know some other users have had this issue before, but most of the files on here were either old and/or deleted. Also, when the unit reboots, the "system startup in progress" appears and does not go away until it reloops, so I can't get into the settings. The system startup notification was never there until after I tried doing the hybrid 4.01 files. I'm not sure how to fix this and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Can anybody help me to get a card update for the Avic F950DAB? Thnx in advance..... Greetz Rob
  19. AVIC NEX 5000 Restore?

    So I just bought the NEX 5000 pioneer from a trusted local pawn and I was crazy excited to put it in but it seems to have a password lock. Pioneer is not open yet here in my time zone but it seems to be an 80 dollar fix? I'm going to see if they can tell me if its stolen but the pawn shop lady told me I could return if it can't be fixed. Anyway to get it into like a system restore mode? I've heard test mode works as well but only ones I see are for other models. Any help would be appreciated!
  20. Hi everyone, ​​ I recently moved to the middle east and took my car with an AVIC-8100NEX installed. I've been trying to work around Naviextras Toolbox. I want to try something which requires some help from you guys. Here is what I want to try out.​ If you synced your usb with the navigation, "synctool" folder will be created. I tried putting maps in that folder with no success on installing it on the system because of the format. I noticed that the files have a ".stm" format. So what if I got the "synctool" folder from someone in Europe for example and installed it on the usb. If I synced it with the system will it install the maps?​ I would like to experiment it and see what's the ​output going to be.
  21. Introduction Following The AVIC Development Mod, we would like to introduce a new Debug menu that was discovered by examining the Av.apk. This mode seems to be one of the developer menus that Pioneer themselves used to develop the software. It seems to be compatible with all decks that The AVIC Development Mod is compatible with. This menu includes but is not limited to: USB OTG Switching (We have yet to see this truly working) Boot Mode Changes (No need for bsp flashing) Stock Android Developer Settings Menu Sensor Debugging Logcat Log Levels Component Logging Creating the WARP Snapshot Creating the UserData Snapshot Saving off the device database Saving off logs Displaying CPU usage imanformation How To: ​Select Off in the Source Settings There are 3 invisible buttons on this screen. See the image below for a picture of the screen, with the Layout Guides Enabled. There are 3 boxes in the center screen those are the invisible buttons, for reference we will designate them buttons 1-3 left to right. Enter the following sequence on the buttons: Button 3, Button 1, Button 3, Button 1, LONG press Button 2. The first 4 presses should be normal button presses, not long presses. When done correctly you will receive a password prompt. Enter DEVELOPDBG ON There are 2 other passwords but they have just a subset of the options that this one has. Click Ok. You will be taken back to the Off screen. Press and hold Button 2. You should now be in the development menu. Sequence How To: https://youtu.be/kK4mQTn6HSs Menu Options: http://youtu.be/F5cOwyQj1N8 FAQs What is this mode? A: It seems to be a developer mode that Pioneer uses at the factory. Why use this over Testmode or the BSP? A: This mode is safer to use as it is built into the device instead of having to flash your BSP, where something could go wrong. This is also easier to access as it does require specific files on your USB Key. However this does have limitations as it does not have all of the modes that Testmode has. What is Needed With the discovery of this mode, it is clear that there is a way to get ADB access with OTG and the developer settings found here. Especially since it seems this is the mode that Pioneer has used to aid in the development of the NEX. Sadly every combination of cables and modes we have tried as not worked as of yet. If you find a combination that gets you ADB or have an idea. Please drop it in the thread.
  22. Introduction With the Introduction of the AVIC Development Mod (http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81468-the-avic-development-mod/). We would like to encourage you to backup your AVIC Internal SD Card and its NOR Flash. Lets also keep all backup links and discussion here NEVER ENTER COPY DEVICE MODE, YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE! The following will show you how to do that: 1. Backup your current BSP and Nor Flash. A. Download the attached NORFlashBackup.zip B. Extract the contents to a FAT32 or NTFS USB Stick. C. Insert the USB Stick to USB Port 1 on the device. D. Follow the "Copy Script Mode" steps. On http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81468-the-avic-development-mod/ E. Grab the USB Stick and save off the mtd0_backup1 -3 files. (Should your device ever brick, these can be used with a JTAG to fully restore your NOR flash or to find out your default BSP Settings) 2. Backup your Internal SD Card (Skip to 3 if you have an unlocked image you want to use) A. Download the attached InternalSDCardBackup.zip B. Extract the contents to a NTFS (IMPORTANT as FAT32 can not store files bigger than 4GB) USB Stick (You can also use a SD Card on the external SD Card if you edit the script). ALSO: The USB Stick must be bigger then your internal SD Card, to store the image. Known sizes are: 4000 - 4GB, 5000-7000 - 8GB, 8000 - 16GB. THIS IS A CURRENT GUESS. To be safe, use a USB Stick larger than 16GB. C. Insert the USB Stick to USB Port 1 on the device. D. Follow the "Copy Script Mode" steps. http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81468-the-avic-development-mod/ (NOTE: This can take a long time depeneding on your device's intenral SD Card size. It can also timeout, Pressing the Vol - while this is running every 15 min seems to keep it from turning off.) It took us 45 min to copy the 4GB card on the 4000 NEX copying to USB1. It took ~40 minutes for a 16GB internal card and 64GB external SD Card (copyscript copying data to external SD, instead of the USB) with 1MB block size (bs=1048576 parameter). For someone else it took ~80 minutes for a 16GB SD Card copying to USB. E. Grab the USB Stick and save off the AVIC.img file to your computer. This is the full Unlocked SD Card Image of your device. NORFlashBackup.zip InternalSDCardBackup.zip
  23. The AVIC Development Mod

    Introduction WhatIsBypass, AdamOutler and myself present The AVIC Development Mod We have eliminated the barriers to development on all AVIC units including Android Auto. You can now create your own ROM on an SDCard and boot directly into it. We've broken all the security and obfuscations, and we've delivered it to you in a nice, easy-to-use web user interface. This has essentially turned the Pioneer line of units into Nexus devices, that boot off SD Cards. We now have the ability to change the NEX BSP Settings which allow us to unlock the SD Card and change the boot settings that are in the Pioneer NEX. We are asking all ROM developers with a NEX step and help us create our own ROM to run on all versions on the NEX System. With the help of all you we can begin to add USB Wifi Drivers, a custom app launcher, the play store, interface skins, more radio presets, radio station data augmented by the internet, Android Auto, iDatalink Gauges, and much more only limited by what we can develop. NEVER ENTER COPY DEVICE MODE, YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE! It is fixable though but a pain as described by WhatIsWhat Overview Here's a quick overview of what we will do in this post. Overview Steps: 1. Backup your current BSP and Nor Flash 2. Backup your current internal SD Card, or obtain a backup SD Card Image. 3. Navigate to https://jenkins.adamoutler.com/job/Customize%20BSP/build?delay=0sec and select the options you want 4. Remember your build number and download your package. 5. Extract to USB stick 6. Put it into USB Port 1 7. Run Script. 8. If you removed the SD Card password you need to insert a new internal SD Card with a backup image. 9. Done! How To Let's talk about the details, now. Run Copy Script Mode: 1. Insert the USB Stick to USB Port 1 on the device. 2. Start the deck, it will then reboot into Technical TestMode. You must use the keys to navigate the menus. BE VERY CAREFUL AS SOME OPTIONS CAN BRICK YOUR UNIT. 3. Use the Vol - button to navigate to "Write Programs Forcibly" 4. Press the Home Button to select this menu 5. Use the Vol - button to navigate to "Copy Script" 6. Press the Home Button to select this menu 7. Take note of the Values on the right hand side of the screen, THESE WILL BE ERASED. (It is currently unknown if these will be needed in the future). If you really want to keep these values though, you can write them down and place them in the corresponding SDCardCWWVersion.txt before you continue. 8. Press the Home Button to run the script. 9. After it says 100% press the Home Button to reset the unit and remove the USB stick. Full Steps to get to a development state: 1. Backup your current BSP and Nor Flash. See http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81469-avic-development-mod-device-backup/ for this. 2. Backup your Internal SD Card (Skip to 3 if you have an unlocked image you want to use) See http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/81469-avic-development-mod-device-backup/ for this. 3.Install a Customized BSP A. Navigate to https://jenkins.casual-dev.com/job/Customize%20BSP/build?delay=0sec B. Select the options that you want to enable. The currently known defaults are already selected. For development select debugSwitch: Debug On Console On, subBootMode: Disable Warp, choicePassword: Remove the Password C. Click Build and note the build number that was started on the left. D. Navigate to https://jenkins.casual-dev.com/job/Customize%20BSP/NSERT_BUILD_NUMBER_HERE/artifact/ where INSERT_BUILD_NUMBER_HERE is your build number. E. Click the (all files in zip) F. Extract the contents of the download to a USB Stick. (FAT32 or NTFS) G. Follow the "Copy Script Mode" steps. H. The unit when it reboots should error out because you removed the SD Card Password lock. 4. Insert an Unlocked Internal SD Card Image A. dd the AVIC.img you backed up to an SD Card of the appropriate size. B. Insert the new SD Card into the Internal SD Card slot. C. Start up the unit. NOTE: It will take a bit for the device to boot since you have disabled WARP above. 5. Congrats!!!! You can now remove the internal SD Card at will and modify the items in the partition and put it back into the Deck. Good luck on your Custom Rom Development and be sure to share your creations!! What we are now asking of the ROM Community: 1. Help us by developing custom roms using the steps above and sharing your creations. 2. Once we have a custom rom we want to share easily, we will get to the steps where we start Creating a new WARP snapshot, and recompiling them back into PRG Update Files. 3. Find a way to enable ADB, One option would be to add a Network Bluetooth Profile, Another option is figuring out USB OTG properly. 4. Lets create an app launcher. 5. Figure out how to modify the maps. 6. Figure out Android Auto/Bluetooth Audio on older models with the new software.

  24. So I formatted my USB drive that had my videos I copied from Youtube, converted online, ran through Handbrake with the settings below (im pretty sure the setting were the same) and loaded on my 64gb USB drive. Viola, the video worked great and so did the audio! It took me forever to find the settings for Handbreak that ACTUALLY worked. Handbreak settings that had worked on my AVIC z130bt. The person I found these setting from was using them on 930bt. Output settings, Container = mp4 file (no checks) Picture tab = Width 624 x (keep aspect ratio) Anamorphic = none Modulus = 16 Cropping automatic Video Filters Tab = all off Video Tab = Video Codec MPEG-4 Framerate = same as source Avg Bitrate (kbps) = 800 I basically had to start over from scratch once I was ready to use that USB again for me car. I replicated the steps above, transferred it over to my USB, plugged it in and a message came up saying it wasn't recognized. With a bit of research I realized that it had to be formatted from exfat or NTSF to FAT32. Since I'm using windows and a 64gb stick cant be formatted to FAT32 I used an app online...formatted no problem. Load the file back over to my USB, plug into the car and now the video and audio are working but are lagging really bad. like a CD skipping back in the day. Does anyone out there know why this would be happening? I've tried a ton of different settings within Handbrake, converted the files and downloaded in 360p Standard Qualitly in order to keep the file size down etc...No luck Any help would be cool
