    I stopped using easyconnect, it makes my tablet very unstable and constantly turns the display off even if it's not connected, I'll look into it again at some point as time permits

    iirc when you do the installer.jpg method it removes that exploit for future attempts (unless something has changed recently) I myself use the other method where you copy the exe files to a USB and load a background for it, granted this method won't work while in motion (meaning you can't start...

    This just gives the presets (i.e. rock, pop, classic, voice) I wonder if it's even possible to get the graphic EQ like what is pictured

    The touchscreen not reacting could be any number of issues, the primary one being if your android version is too high, you can only show the screen, not control it. I believe the version cut off is Android 9 it stops working, if your device is below that, try a different device if you can, even...

    I'll put together a USB image for you, just give me some time since it is a holiday here in the U.S. and I'm out with family. I've been busy as well apologies for not responding sooner

    Read post 1741, and use that package of software, it's far better than the encrypt/decrypt method and requires almost no effort. I will admit, I wish there was a launcher or something that I could use if the vehicle is in motion but that's for a different post

    If you use the package from Ford website, it detects navigation and reinstalls it (did on my unit)

    Lol. Fair enough, but I still feel like we're just getting to the top of the ice burg, granted I could be horribly wrong and the ship has sunk, who knows. I have been having issues with my sync 2 unit rebooting randomly, and if I don't turn BT on my phone off, it just boot loops, so I have a...

    That is interesting, why would Ford make something that, if I had to guess, no body uses have such a high priority? I could see if it were like BT or a button listener for button actions, but the speech doesn't make sense to me. On your bench unit, is it possible to run something besides WinCE...

    Hmm ... I myself never use the speech recognition stuff on my sync 2 unit, does anyone else? I wonder if we were to replace it with a dummy file if that would increase the performance?

    Well if you installed using the decrypt software method (or bought from the Russian) you might have to re-install sync 2, as far as writing a how-to, I don't think the methods are there yet, but if you look back through this thread. You will find everything you need to achieve what you want to...

    Do you think it might be worth making a VLC CE build to try? All the versions I have found are not actually WinCE executables, I have a feeling that will also give a better experience than the video player we currently have.

    I got the USB files made for you, I did not include any of the iGo files, just the files needed to run it on a sync 2 unit. there is a text file in the navngo folder that gives an overview of what to do, let me know if you have any problems with this

    I know it's Windows CE 6 based, and I think (I could be wrong, may want to verify) it is a MIPS processor, if you need people to test your build, I can accomodate. Beans I got the file, I'll get it setup for you to try when I get a moment unless someone else beats me to it.

    If you can provide me with a filename layout, for iGO, I will set it up for you. In other news, the media player I found loads super fast, but the file open window is not usable really, I also managed to get hobdashboard to load, I have to set up the module to connect to my ELM327 to see if it...

    Awesome, thank you for the response, I had a feeling it was going to be that, I will see if I can get a VNC client to run and let you know how it goes. I luckily have a win ce 6 emulator so it makes testing things a little easier

    I believe you just have to edit a couple lines in the 3.08 to say 3.10, I don't recall which limes though. I believe that info is in this thread though

    I have seen that too, but the process of fixing is to try all the easy stuff first, if it doesn't work with a different device, then I'd say try the install.bin again, maybe this te.the D5 package, since you already have it installed, just changing the S/N with decrypt and renaming the...

    I did the D5 package for my install, if it isn't working on your device, I'm wondering if a different device would yield a result (even if it isn't your primary device) cause I recall reading somewhere (maybe this thread?) That some devices have issues with easy connect, is there a possibility...

    I believe if you uninstall the app from your device then plug it in, the screen should give you a qr code to get an APK, I'd try that just to see if it starts working, then we can try and go from there

    On my sync 2 it has the first image, I'm not sure if that's a newer or older version, does it load to a screen then give an error or just flash that for a second then go back to the main screen?

    There is a risk of losing navigation, but the instructions to fix it are on this page, it's just an extra couple of files. Have you tried using an install.bin from a different MirrorLink package?

    Post MyFord Touch system hack. Enable features, navigation, rear view camera, etc.

    Easiest way is to make a 3.10 install USB and reinstall 3.10, I haven't tried the new package myself yet but it's on the list of things to do.

    I was able to get the D5 links to work, the gist is after you download and extract D5, you open CMD in the D5 directory and type "decrypt <S/N>" which is 8 digits, if that all stuff you've done and your getting nothing verify you have the correct S/N from your APIM. This will be different for...

    Firstly, no need to shout, secondly, we need more information, like are you getting errors? Does it do nothing at all? Just saying it doesn't work is similar to bringing your vehicle to the mechanic and saying "fix it" then walking away

    I wonder if the video player software I have on my WinCE nav unit (not sync2) would handle videos better, I may have to fire that up and test. If that handles a modern video better than sync 2, maybe I'll try my hand at making an app for sync 2

    Ahh ok, that's where I was getting lost, the dll I'm used to being the equivalent of a .so file on Linux, not the actual executable info, I know a little bit about OS code from my UT on a Galaxy Note 4 experience, but I'm unfamiliar with windows programming outside of VBASIC lol

    I wasn't saying "hey let's run explorer" I chose that as the file name, probably an oopsie on my part, but I do have other WinCE apps like iGo, and I was curious if it would be possible to run those on the shockwave system, I don't yet know how to compile an "install.bin" for that kind of stuff.
