How can report this bad firmware??? 1.73.3 (6-8GB)

- Wipe my user data
- The sound are good but need put to MAX LEVEL to ear on good volume
- The Subwoofer ignition NOT WORK, Dont send the ignition signal to run the external amplifier (the icon of amplifier are activated)

Haven't found any way to report to xyauto. Sent email and wechat msg and no reply.

Can try seller but probably no benefit either.

Hi
I finally successfully updated my YT7260L HU to Android 10 with 1.72FW version. I am using Windows PC by the way, and I was able to update by using the 2nd USB port directly came from back of the HU. Firstly I was trying car's own USB port but was not working. You may see the photos below. API version also update to 29. MCU is still 0.7, is there any necessity to update it or how may i update it?

Default UI and DSP settings UI also changed.

I have another question regarding the ZLINK. When I checked the ZLINK, I noticed that its not activated and when I try to activate it, I got the error code below. Do you have guys any idea how to activate it?

Thanks.

Hi again,

IS there any working solution to activate Zlink? I extracted the APK from the system than uninstalled to reinstall again but extracted APK file does not work.

Hope there is a way to install and activate

zlink activation requires a license. My HU came with a license and even after user data wipe on 5/24/22 version of 1.73.3 install, license recovered automatically somehow. I've never had to enter the license code

There was an earlier version of xyauto firmware that came with zlink activated by default (earlier 1.7x, don't remember) but it was probably accidental as xyauto removed it quickly.

My problems now are:
  • If I plug my phone in and ZLink starts while the radio app is going, Android Auto and Radio will be playing music at the same time, so I have to go to the recent apps list and manually close the radio app every time.
    • The radio app at volume level ~5 is the equivalent of ZLink Android Auto's volume at ~25. I have to remember to lower my volume significantly before I leave the car. Wish there was a way to offset it.
  • The reverse camera guidelines are wayyyy too aggressive, they link my car can turn on a literal dime. I wish I could tweak how sensitive they are on screen in relation to how much I turn my wheel. Haven't found the proper setting for this yet, if there even is one.
    • My head unit is often too slow to display the reverse lines when I shift to reverse. Sometimes they show up but don't react to the CANBUS steering wheel changes. Sometimes they show up on my homescreen for ~10 seconds after I've already switched back to Drive.
  • My SWC volume controls react pretty slowly. I have to slowly press volume up/down, can't hold it or tap it rapidly, it still changes very slowly.
    • Trying to add volume buttons in AGAMA and they don't do anything. I've tried multiple launchers and they can't control system volume- only my SWC or hardware volume buttons actually change the volume.
  • I switch the head unit/CANBUS settings to use Fahrenheit (F) and it always shows Celsius anyway. The pop-up overlay at the bottom of the screen that appears when the head unit detects I change air conditioning settings is always showing the temp in C. I would turn this whole thing off if I could. I like it showing doors being open, but not the whole air conditioning bar.
    • My car's AC cycles on and off based on whether the desired temperature is met. Every time it cycles on/off this info bar overlay on the bottom of the screen displays again. As I said above, I'd love to just turn this off somehow but retain my other CANBUS stuff (SWC, reverse sensing, open doors, etc).

I have same problem. after carplay phone call back to radio is huge increase in volume. This problem is quite common amongst HUs even factory ones. Basic problem is 2 layers of audio mixing that is uncoordinated.

Your HU has a setting for call volume separate from music volume. This is because calls are mid tone frequency and volume need to be adjusted higher for clarity. So our HU has this and HU auto changes volume going from music -> call -> music.

Now carplay is yet another app but this app has its own audio sources including music and call. Ideally, carplay's music volume inherit HU's music volume setting and phone call inherits HU's call volume setting. But of course this is not happening and zlink carplays call is happening at music volumes which is faint (since HU doesn't know) and the driver adjusted up higher to hear. When call ends... music is blasting.

Higher end HUs sometimes have offsets. But even then it has problems. The best solution requires Android HU software to be coordinate with carplay software. Unfortunately this may never happen.

Hi all!

New to the thread and I’ve just installed the 5760B in my 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan But have one glaring issue - I’m only getting audio out of the right speakers (both radio and CarPlay).

I’ve tried digging into Settings thinking something may be panned somewhere… but no luck. All I hear out of the left side is popping randomly (mainly when changing from Radio to CarPlay or other apps or adjusting audio in the DSP Settings App).

At this point I feel like it has to be the wiring adapter I received with the kit or the unit itself. Any thoughts/ideas? Could it be the CAN BUS Settings? Would a firmware update help/hurt? See attachment for specifics.

I purchased this on eBay and the seller isn’t being very helpful so far… so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

There are no known software issues on L and R speaker output on this unit. You are also on fairly recently firmware so no need to mess with new firmware just yet.

If your old radio plays sound on both sides, then its surely the unit and/or adapter. Sounds like the unit if you hear it sporadically in relation to software events.

Before updating to 1.72 version, I had Phonelink app which was already activated, with 1.72 FW Zlink comes and its not activated.

Do you think It will work smooth and activated if I make factory reset? Or Wipe from them recovery mode? In addition, How may i launch the recovery mode?

I have no idea if phonelink will reactivate. If you want to try, I'd suggest write down license # if visible somewhere in the app. Maybe contact the seller how to activate if lost during reset/recovery but they are probably unreachable or no help.

Thanks for the response. I took another look at the setup this morning, and confirmed it was an issue with the plug n play wiring harness…

Basically this unit and wiring kit was designed to output to 4 channels (FL, FR, RL, and RR) while my Grand Caravan only has L and R audio to the amplifier. My OEM Unit had some way of moving audio from Front to Back without the second set of wires/channels, possibly a CAN BUS setup.

Folks quick question does anybody use a newer zlink version than 3.9.7? has anybody tried installing latest version from http://www.zjinnova.com/col.jsp?id=106 ? Is it worth it?
Theoretically if you sideloaded this and it was recognized as the same app, it would just be installed as an "update" to the existing ZLink which is a system app.

So if something didn't work you could uninstall and it would roll back to the original system one.

Thanks Mate, I'll try it and comment about it
So I installed the ZLink APK from the link you posted and it's a no-go. It's just a bum app, doesn't do anything for us. It's not the same app as the normal ZLink so it installs side-by-side and is named something like "ZPlus" and does not seem to interact with my phone or the existing ZLink at all.


Also I downloaded and extracted 1.73.6 to poke around, and tried copying some of the APK files from there onto my head unit (CanBus ones, XYAuto stuff, CarSettings, DSP, ZLink, etc). All I really accomplished was making it so Car Settings wouldn't launch, CanBus stuff broke, and ZLink didn't really update.

Had to factory reset from Android settings and reconfigure everything.

Have we learned what the J in J1.73 stand for?

I attempted to upgrade firmware to 1.73.3 but it gave me the ‘The system upgrade file version is incorrect’ error in red.

Additionally, do anyone else have intermittent CarPlay/Xlink issues? Sometimes not connecting of the application freezing, especially when using remote start on the vehicle.

    Update for the Zlink5.
    XYauto currently only offered zlink ver 5.2.48 to 5760B.
    But for some reason, 92XX HU has zlink 5.3.8 (26 OCT 2022) to download.
    The good news is zlink 5.3.8 can be used on our 5760 system. All you need to do is update the zlink5 tar.gz file for 5760 first, than extract (Just open tar.gz file with WinRAR) and install the zlink 5.3.8 apk form zlink5 tar.gz file for 92XX. remember to reboot your HU before use, otherwise the app won't start.

    zlink 5.3.8's wireless connectivity has been significantly improved.

    However it still shows the status bar all the time.

    Thanks brother, do you have by any chance the engineering password available, I can't seem to find it this morning
    Check Howardc64's website, there is a lot of info there! The passwords are here:

    updated 11/19/22 1.73.7 + 11/18/22 UI20 for 1024x600 2GB/32GB YT-5760B

    • Did not user data wipe over my prior firmware 11/4/22 1.73.7
    • Audio volume back to normal loudness. No longer need to press a bunch of volume +. Decided to keep this upgrade
    • I did get a crash + user data wipe during rapid power down/up sequence.

    Hey folks, quick question here. Has any of you experienced a self wipe from your head units? Mine just did that, lost all apps, zlink was not activated until I got wifi to the radio. Pretty strange event. There was some solar wind activity a few weeks ago, that can mess up electronics, but I don't know in my case no particular electromagnetic things happening in my garage, lol. Let me know about your thoughts, maybe is common with these units. Thanks
    Yes it happened to me 4 or 5 times when starting the car (see post #1124), since I changed power mode from "direct shutdown" to "user mode" the problem dissapeared.

    Hi

    I was using "direct shutdown" power mode. For now I will put the HU in "user mode", I hope this fixes my issue.

    My battery is quite new but is true that sometimes the car does not start as good as should do it.

    Thanks!

    Never encountered a user data wipe on the HU in just regular usage (in user mode) Only during some firmware updates where xyauto triggered data wipes. However, Have had random crash+reboot when HU wakes up (again, in user mode) immediately after starting the car. Speaker would pop 2x during the reboot process. No data is lost. This random crash+reboot seems to have disappeared recently. I guess either newer firmware helped or maybe weather got colder? Don't really know. Didn't installed a fan on the HU in my Pacific Northwest USA mild climate.

    Even if unit overheats (if didn't install a fan and operate in hot climate), I'd imagine it would just crash and reboot instead of data wipe. But don't know for sure.

    Strange behavior. Would be interesting to track this down.

    The XYgala.com has released another newer 1.73.7 split screen firmware (release date 28 October).
    And UI20 add-on pack has also been updated, it made adding the app to main screen bit easier.
    The new firmware updated the Zlink to ver 3.9.43, which causes sound/music distortion when using Carpaly.
    At least this problem appeared on my HU.
    if you are having the same problem, you can install zlink ver 3.9.27 from my previous post.

    Is it wiping user data as 1.73.3?

    Just installed 1.73.6 on 5760B 1024*600, didn't wipe user data.

    Actually, I forgot and left 1.73.3 (don't recall if it was 5/24 or 7/25 version) on the USB stick w/1.73.6 and 1.73.3 got installed which wiped my user data. But then I installed 1.73.6 over this without wiping user data.

    Biggest change I notice is just the 2x boot up pop sound is gone. So maybe xyauto have more orderly sound hardware initialization now :)

    I have recorder a video with the YT5760B system upgrade. It takes about 5 minutes to complete. In the attached ZIP file you can find the video.

    I have updated firmware to the latest version 1.71.
    • Setting up car's clock finally works with Mazda 6 GH
    • Annoying sound in the background did not disappear
    • DSP profiles work better since 1.70

    The above one with "ota" in the name of the file is the right one to copy onto a USB stick and to update the head unit. Usually, the second file is to update the firmware via PC
