Nevermind, figured out the problem.

You have to hold all four buttons, then release the reset button first, then release the eject button, then you get the blue screen (without a time limitation). I also got no pop from the speakers, I just guessed on timing.

If I try this on my f500 is there a good chance I could brick it? I would obviously back up the flash storage first.

I have been up and running for a while now....I must say, for those of you who are upgrading from 2.0 w/o any hacks this is kind of a big deal.....

It just feels and looks more polished. And I know I read somewhere that someone was pissed you couldn't mute the button beeps. Guess what, that option is in there as well!

After walking through all the steps, everything looks to be ok but the system constantly reboots every 5 minutes. I hear the new button sounds, and can check the system info and it shows I am running 3.0 firmware. But the "System Startup" message never goes away, and the whole unit reboots after 5 minutes.

I am thinking it is the WinCE update. When booting into testmode, and checking the WinCE version, it shows that it is 5.0. I thought I read here (somewhere??) that it should be 6.x. I grabbed all the files from page one in this thread, and didn't get any errors at any stage. I am running a F900BT. Any help would be much appriciated!

Thanks

Ahaha I agree. Man don't give up on the AVIC's we are just beginning to scratch the surface. $120 for this update is insane. $20 is pushing it. Bare minimum they should have provided the update free with f90bt's.

That happened to me when I used the hacked ezrider. Try using the ezrider that comes with the download.

i'm able to complete steps 1-7.

After step 7
Step 7: Wait till it says restart in the bottom center.
I reset the device and try to bootup with the test mode sd card and the unit initially shows the pioneer logo then goes black. I try without the sd card in and it does the same thing. any ideas? ive reloaded the update twice just in case and nothing.

You need to use the newest testmode files. What your describing is what happens when you use the old test mode.

Just out of curiosity, when you update CE in step 7, did you use update/format option or did you just update? On the original thread for this update, you have to choose update only WITHOUT FORMAT OPTION. I am not saying this is what happened to you, but it is possible.
