Although I downgraded to Android 4.2.2, the cracked TomTom app has now the same issue as under KK 4.4.2 - it asks for network access and fails licensing if granted.
Buying TomTom from Google Play store is not possible: the TT app is NOT listed, probably because it is not supported by our devices. Obviously, that is not right, since the same TT app had run OK before my unfortunate upgrade to KK.
If someone succeeds in installing TomTom, please share the recipe!
P.S. The only downgrade I did not do was that for MCU. I still have (KLD) version 2.08, while before I had both mcu & update images of version 2.03. But the MCU should not matter, should it?
I'm still having problem with the GPS after upgrade to KK. I made some test today and download some GPS fix from Google Store with not luck..
My problem that Google Maps while navigating looks like it stop every four/five seconds for two seconds and repeat that all the time.
On IGO run a litle better but for example I'm driving at 30 Milles by hour but in IGO show I'm at 40/45 milles by hour, normally must be a little bit slow, never more faster.
Another problem with the GPS is that for example the app that comes with the KK 4.4 never found my location, for this reason I think that the GPS never lock the location...
Any idea about what can I do or test?
The most important for me is Google Maps because I use everyday for work purposes.
I think your problem is the fact that you are using a pirated app, nothing else, not the Android version definitely not the MCU, just that you were able to get away with it for a while, but not any longer. KK has more advanced security features than JB, so somehow I think its let TT know that the app is pirated and now TT has your device id and will no longer allow you to use it, even if you downgrade to JB.
I think the way round it if you dont want to pay for an app, is to use a free and open source nav app, like Navfree, BeOnRoad or OSMandMaps etc, or maybe try and change your device id ?

Did your factory head unit have the button lights on all the time ?
My factory CD/Radio did not, but I retro-fitted the factory sat nav and the button lights on that were always on.

It's a MCU problem for the button backlight.if you use mcu till 1.77 the button light wil vork as it should.
I m sure there was a box with some code in it from the MCU in the post I remember.
Edit: just done a thread search and someone mentions the MCU from an AN21-U being de-compiled, I was reading both threads for a while, so maybe I m remembering a box with the MCU code in it from the AN21-U thread ? Its worth checking that thread and asking who-ever de-compiled it for tips, even though its a different MCU he might be helpful.
1- clear any previous version you had in the headunitThis works. But I found a problem.
2- install tomtom 1.3.2 but do not run it, it won't find the maps
3- create the following folders in your internal sdcard "/Android/data/com.tomtom.europe/files/files"
* instead of "europe" you must use your own maps
4- copy the file ".metada.xml" that you have on your GPS card under "tomtom/com.tomtom.europe/.metadata.xml" to the folder "/Android/data/com.tomtom.europe/files"
5- open this file and modify the path that you find there to: "/mnt/internal_sd/Android/data/com.tomtom.europe/"
At this point you have the right file structure, but there are no files in the internal sd card.
You cannot copy all the maps there because there is no space. The solution is to create a link.
6- Download folderMount from play store
7- Create a link from /mnt/internal_sd/Android/data/com.tomtom.europe/files/files/ --> "/mnt/external_sd/tomtom/com.tomtom.europe/files/" (or wherever you have your maps in the GPS card)
8- "run the link, it is the pin icon. WHen created, you will see a green pin next to the link
9- run tomtom
- create a link between internal_sd card and external_sd at boot before any app is workingWARNING:
- fix settings writing.
