Map Update Hack using "ShortFuse" method - Z110-Z140;X920-X940

Recommended Posts

The hack is installed. The map installation is not part of this thread. Your problem is with the map update files. Discuss that in the F-Series 2017 update thread.

 

It's OK! I will look at the other thread

 

Thanks

I've tried to install the hack, but when putting the sd-card in my F930bt it says:

"caution!

Test mode failed starting!

[tun off acc]"

 

The sd-card/slot works fine when I put mp3 file's on it.

I have no idea why it failed. Looks like you will have to do the manual method. You don't need to patch/edit your RenewallFlib.dll file. use the one that came in the script zip. Download and extract  Supertestmode. Copy that Testmode.key to your SD and insert in the Avic. Test Mode should start. Go into file maintenance, then delete the existing RenewallFlib.dll files from  both APL folders (\USER\PRG0\APL and \USER\PRG1\APL). Then copy and paste the RenewallFlib.dll I included into both APL directories. Good luck - Testmode is a pain to use for many of us.

Thanks for the reply. Using the 3 files instead of just the one made it happen. Unfortunately my sd card went busted when updating. So I had to abort and remove the file in the Users folder. Now my set is pretty slow. Will buy a new sd card tomorrow and hopefully the update will start up again.

Hope this thread isn't dead yet:D

I have an F940BT with the original 04.000 firmware and original 2012 maps (I think, no map version shown).

Can I run the 'ShortFuseScript' without updating the firmware to Pioneers original FW_Update_v4.600 ?

why would you NOT want to update the firmware?

how long does it take to update from SD card?

To install the hack? A few seconds. If your question is about installing the map update, it belongs in the map update thread. Should take around 20-30 minutes.

Hey,

I'm wondering if this hack is a one-time only install, or if it should be applied again before updating the maps again.

I used it for the 2017 update on my F920BT, but am now wondering if I should run it again when the 2019 update becomes available or if it's a persistent hack that gets preserved after a map+software upgrade.

If you ran it in 2017, it wrote the hacked RenewalIFLib.dll file in PRG0/APL and PRG1/APL. Only one of those files got overwritten by the 2017 update. When you install an update, it overwrites the "non-active" PRGn files with the new update's files. Then it makes the new PRGn the active directory by setting or deleting /USER/PRG.FLG. So I'd guess the hack needs to be installed again since the non-hacked one is in the "active" PRGn/APL

However, that's all just theory. No one that I know of has even tried the hack with 2019. So I guess we'll find out soon.
