I ordered a preloaded SD card from eBay with the NEX AVHW4500 software on it. I was not able to lower the front screen using the eject button (as I had no access to the settings functions due to the boot loop error), so i pried the front screen off with a plastic stereo removal tool, then I manually pushed/forced the motorized tray that holds the front screen down so I could get access to where the internal SD card is installed. I then used Datsun's idea of creating an access slot underneath the external SD card reader to get to the broken internal SD card. I used his pictures as a guide of where to make the slot. Few tips: I first used blue painters tape to tape up the AUX cable hole and the external SD slot, as well as underneath the motorized tray so I could catch any little plastic shavings and make sure they did not end up inside the unit. I used a 1/16 drill bit to carefully and slowly drill holes through the plastic where the internal slot is. Then I heated up a razor blade with a lighter, and used that to carefully melt/cut out the slot. Popped the old broken card out, inserted the new one from eBay and the unit powered and booted right up. The only thing you have to do is set up your unit (and reconnect to your devices) as if it were brand new. So make sure to write down or take screen shots of your iPhone settings prior. Hope this helps. Can you give any more details on how to remove the front? Were you able to leave the unit in the car? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
