SPH-DA120 - APPRADIO4 - SD Image File

Recommended Posts

Hello AVIC411.com users, Other threads have focused on 4000NEX and 6000NEX. This thread is specific to the SPH-DA120 - APPRADIO 4. I am looking for the AVIC5000NEX image file. It seems there are plenty of users experiencing the same crash symptoms. We are looking to some of the super users to help us out with copies of the internal SD Card Image Files that will allow our devices to work again. Please help, as a non-super user, I/We am/are in need of easy to follow steps to bring my device back from the endless "boot cycle" that it is currently experiencing.

 

Please leave links or provide more information via a PM. Driving around with a double DIN hole in my dash and listening to my iphone is not exactly what I had in mind when I purchased this unit for $700 new a couple years back.

Need an unlocked image for an APPRADIO 4 SPH-DA120 Canada / US. SD Card Failed.  I can get into test mode but it power cycles from test mode after a minute so there isn't much I can do. 

Any help is much appreciated if it fixes my issue I am happy to donate $$

Hey, so I had some help fixing my DA120 With Testkey N3 to unlock the SD and the Image that I now have for the US SPH-DA120. You use win32 disk imager to put the image on the sd card drive once it's unlocked.

Thank you very much!
 

This solved my dying SD Card issues.

 

This SD Card firmware worked on an EU (German) Pioneer SPH DA 120. I was able to just flash a new SD Card with the image you provided and did not need to remove the password or anything else. Afterwards I updated the Firmware to 1.18 from the EU webpage.

Hi All, does someone have the steps for using the TESTKEY N3 to unlock the SD please ? got a bricked DA120

I'd recommend just downloading the unlocked SD image file from above in this thread, then use a brand new SD card to put that image onto (using win32diskmaker program). Instead of trying to unlock & use the SD card that came with the Pioneer headunit; those cards are trash "Transcend" brand. They don't last.

Once complete, do the latest firmware update for your region from Pioneer's support website. Then you should be good to go. Helps to test it before putting everything back together since it is such a pain to take apart & reinstall into the car dash.
