I tried so many half-assed reverts on my own I probably had files from every release going at the same time but this fixed it, the second time... I spent so much time messing with it the car battery died with about 5 minutes left of the final 2.0 file copy.
Only advice I can give with the test mode is to try both the old and new versions. One should work and I don't believe it matters how you get it in test mode just that you do.

I am at step 9 and i cant get passed it because ever time I start it up it goes into the splash screen then in goes black for a sec than goes back to the splash screen and the goes to the windows screen for a sec then it completely go black can someone plz help.. The menu and the map buttons arent even light up plz help.. I dont know what I am doing wrong..
Well, I got to this same point and had the same result. I spent nearly an entire day trying to figure it out, but in the end I was successful. What I had to do was download the 2.006 firmware from Pioneers website under the support tab. Go to older models, find F900BT and click. Locate the update tab, then download the file.
http://pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Supp ... BT.Support
Once the file is downloaded to your computer, unzip it. Click on the folder F-series firmware update, then click on the folder LPUE080, then click on the folder PLT. You will find two files in this folder. WINCEIMG.BIN and WINCEIMG.CKS
Copy these two files onto a SD card, and when you go to the blue screen to update WINCE, these files will be used. Now, when you insert the SD card with the testmode folder and press reset, your head unit will reboot and launch the windows interface. It will remain on and allow you to continue will this aggravating process.

immediately following the previous fix that i did, i installed cmh's mod. things were fine, no problems at all.
now the thing constantly reboots. i have tried to get into testmode, i have tried to reinstall the 2.0 update, i have tried to update wince with the sd cards. the thing wont stay up long enough for me to get the sd card to format the unit. it'll read as far as 66% of the sd card before it goes black and shuts off. any other method that i have tried just keeps the thing rebooting every 10 seconds or so.
please help me.
i am using an f900bt.
does anyone have any solution for this?
Alrighty. So apparently getting into the service menu by holding down MAP+MENU+EJECT isn't enough. It'll bring up the service menu and allowed me to begin navigating around to reformat, but within 30 seconds or so it'd restart. I finally re-read this thing enough to figure out that the directions tell you to also press RESET in conjunction with the 3 other buttons. That solved it. I was able to reformat in the service menu, reload 2.006 firmware, and get into Testmode using the 2.3 version so that I could follow the rest of the directions and get my unit back up and working. Thank you thank you thank you!!! 2 days without music is a terrible terrible thing.
