Backups and Images

So, I said screw it. Ordered the avh2avic for the avh-w4500nex from the russian seller. Supposed to get them in 2 to 6 weeks. When I do, I will mail someone this card that does work. As long as they make the image available for others to use so they can fix their 4500's. Any takers? But only after I get the new cards and make sure they work.

I have received a "new" SD Card for my AVIC 5201NEX and I want to back it up before trying it out.

My problem is getting my Windows 10 PC to recognize the card.

It burns my butt having to do this because Pioneer cheaped out on the card and don't offer a free solution to fix.

i have a 4500nex in my hands right now but I cant get test mode to load.. anyone? no one wants to help in the slack channel because they sell these on ebay and make money

I have a non working 4500.  Spent the whole day today getting my head wrapped around this whole thing.  I wish I could help but I can't find anywhere to get a testmode script for the 4500.  I tried the slack channel too before find the same as you.  They actually just deleted my posts.

I was able to get my 4500 working with the 4400 image on page 8 but i have no touchscreen. :(

Hey, so I got the sd card for my avh w4500nex from Russia. Again, I had 2 of these radios, one crapped out but the other worked.  So I have a WORKING SD CARD for a AVH W4500 NEX. I will mail it to you, only one condition, It needs to be one of the people that can get this image out to the rest that need it. I don't have a clue how to get it able to backup. I tried the instructions, couldn't get it to do anything with the test files and all that. Maybe I wasn't holding my tongue right or something I will hold on to it. Maybe someone will respond. Send me a message.

I bought the avh2avid card as well as I just got tired of trying to find the image.  Also, I've had no success in running the backup scripts and such mentioned on this site.  I have learned quite a bit, including the password the card is locked with, how cmd42 works to lock the card and the location of a bunch of images on Mega (not the 4500 though).

I definitely think getting a working 4500 image would be great!  My biggest fear is this new card I bought failing and being right back to where I was :( 

For the SD card, I have a laptop that is able to read the card in Windows without dropping an immediate error however nothing else I try works.  I can't format it, access it, etc.  I think the only way to get the card backed up is to use the instructions here, however I cannot get my unit using the 4400 image to boot into the service mode:

Working Image Links

 

Here are the image links that seem to be working.  I know for sure the 4400 link works as I am using it on my 4500:

4400: https://mega.nz/file/SdJCgKCJ#13zrFlogMCWNohCvuFsDFcC1uniHgufVZJxZlQPHUag

A bunch of others including 8800, F60, F80, F77, F970, DA120:

I know a few people had unresponsive touchscreens,  I did too on mine using the 4400 file.

Hey @GettinOld - Anyone volunteer to help you rip your SD card? If not, I could walk you through it. 

(I wish I'd done it earlier... my Pioneer has finally gone down, and I'm searching for a 4500 image without much luck.)

I see a few responded but if you would be able to help me step by step that would be great. Then I’d be able to help otherwise that are in need of a functional 4500 image.  Cheers!
