Because that are the latest versions that would work with extremely outdated Android version honda uses. Checked new cars today, Honda is still selling cars with the same 4.0.4 Android.

I don’t have any idea but when i use ADB shell and try the «*reboot recovery*» command, the unit reboot normaly just like there is no recovery mode...


I would be also intersted to know if it is possible to recover a soft brick as i am planning to install the Xposed Framework and i fear to screw my device up. Does any body tried to install it?

Step By Step Tutorial
Ok Here is a Step by Step Tutorial on how I have been able to install any application on my Honda Connect RC7 .

Disclaimer: I am not responsible of any damage this could make to your device. Do it at your own risk. The only thing I know is that it worked fine on my RC7 unit… I hope this could help you to install application on your head unit.

How to check your version :
Go to the android parameter and click on About this device . You should find Build Number : 0F.095.01.1123. Ok You have the RC7

Version Check

What you need:
A – Hardware:
1/ USB OTG Cable - Female A to Micro A ( https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11604 )
2/ USB A Male To A Male Cable ( https://www.amazon.com/DTOL-Feet-USB.../dp/B000BSJFFC )
3/ Screwdriver philips ph00

B – Software:
1/ iRoot
2/ Honda Permission from S_Mike

Here is the files I used: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hl4egyh1x...MPQcE9Mea?dl=0

Step One: Preparing your computer and the iRoot software.
Before everything, I have installed the Intel Android Drivers (not sure it is important but …)

A/install iRoot on your Windows computer
B/Go to the install directory of iRoot ( in my case this is c:\Program File (x86)\iRoot\ )
C/There you should find a directory ( in my case this is \1.8.9.21144) which contain kinguser.zip
D1/ Easy Way : Replace it with the one I have included in my dropbox link.
D2/ Hard Way : edit the kinguser.zip file and replace the kinguser.apk with the application that you want to inject. In this case we want to inject the Honda Permissions application from S_Mike. I have downloaded the one from cmdroid.com that’s why it is HondaAppCenter_A1.apk. Just rename it as kinguser.apk and replace it in the kinguser.zip

Step Two: Connecting the device to your computer


1 – Enable the Developer Option

A/start the device
B/Press and hold "MENU"+"Day/Night"(Brightness)+"POWER" button (in this order) for about five seconds until the display changes
C/Select "Detail Information & Setting"



D/Select “Functional Setup”



E/Select “Developer Option Enable”



F/Select “On” to enable the developer option menu.



G/Push Return to come back to the Welcome screen

2 – Enable the USB Debug mode in the developer option Menu

A/Go to the Android settings.
B/Select Developer Options



C/Tick USB Debugging. ( I have also tick the Stay awake but I don’t think it would change anything…)



3 – Connecting the device to the computer

A/Flip the screen (push the eject button)
B/Unscrew the 4 screws which hold the screen



C/Get the screen slowly out (it could be tighten but mind the ribbon cable of the screen !)
D/Hold the screen with one hand and use the other hand get the plastic cache ( just above the ribbon cable) out.








E/Use something to support the screen.
F/ Now that the screen is raised, you can access to the micro USB Type A port.



G/Plug your cable in that port



Step Three : Inject the Honda Permission application

A/Start iRoot



B/Plug the cable to your computer and you should see



C/Wait until this



D/Click on Root

E/Wait ( The sound of your head unit might stop sometimes)



F/Now you should have that screen and your unit should restart.



G/After restart you should find the Honda Permission installed.

Step Four : Installing any application

A/Start Honda Permission
B/You can Edit the HondaAppcenter_A1.apk (leave your finger on it until the pencil arrives on the top right side of the screen)
C/replace the “Sig digest sha256” with PREINSTALL value
This should activate the “HondaAppCenter_A1.apk” BackDoor.

BUT in my case The Install button was still greyed out…

Here is my solution:

A/ Start Honda Permission
B/Click on the + button in the Allowed Installations menu



C/Create a new rule with :
• APK Name : application.apk
• Package name:
• Sig digest sha256 : PREINSTALL



D/Now you can install any application that you have renamed application.apk.
