I started this thread specifically for the K2001Q T3 models.

The T3/T3L has quite a few different firmwares and I am not sure if they can be exchanged and will work properly so I suggest to only load this only models that show K2001Q. The Q stands for Android 10. If you have any other K2001 models, this update will try but not work as changing Android versions can only be done using the .img file and I am not aware of any Android 10 .img file being available as yet.

If you radio shows K2001N but says Android 10, it is showing Fake Android 10 as N is Android 7. You can try this update but it will fail.

To confirm which model you have, go to Apps, Car settings, System settings, System Info. It must say K2001Q. MCUVersion doesn't matter.

I have attached a sample picture. It is also the latest firmware available for this model that I received from the manufacturer. I will post in this thread from now on as the previous thread has the T3 P1 model which this is but the K2001Q seems to be different firmware or has some different chips so might not be compatible with the other firmware. That model has the car settings in the Android settings menu which is completely different.

To update, download the zip file, rename it to update.zip, put it on the root of your flash.
Go to Apps, Car Settings, System settings, System Update. It should say there is an update available and you hit start. Unit will be reset back to factory once done. If the radio had DSP & Car Play, it will still be there when you update.

For changing the launcher (No aftermarket launcher is supported), do the following:
Apps -> Car Settings -> System Settings -> Factory Settings (Password is 16176699) -> Style Settings (Password is 111333). I prefer Style 3.

Car settings has a lot of new stuff. Like Desktop Settings. No idea what it is and I just received this firmware today to it will take time to figure it out. Factory settings -> Customized settings ... has a lot of options. Sleep, Voice control (never tested this), etc. If you need to change something, it will be there.

There are risks updating your radio so please do so at your risk. I did not write this firmware or own it or confirm it will work correctly for you. Try make sure you be as careful when updating as bricking your radio will mean you will stuggle to fix it as no .img file is available to flash the radio directly.

Latest update (20211224):

Interesting changes I have noticed:
New Radio app.
UI Theme can now be controlled by its own app.

**Do not update if your radio is not on 1024x800 resolution as the update will cause problems with the unit and it will not display correctly.

Los botones me funcionan, no creo que sea la culpa. Todavía no puedo conectar el obd con ningún apk, ni siquiera torque pro. Combínalo y nada más. Sin apk ni wifi.

Which version of Torque pro are you using? I use the one from elm327.com. Download the apk and install it. I started Torque pro, then minimized it and went to tool box. Then sync'd it there. Then went back to torque pro and it showed it under bluetooth in the settings. It then connected to the OBD2 and worked fine.

    I upodated my Binize radio purchased on Amazon to this version today. Binize confirmed in the QA section on Amazon that it is the T3. I was happy to see the speedometer on UI1 can be chainged from KM to miles by touching the speedometer. I also have the Agame launcher loaded for my wife and it works well with our unit. It is set as default in the android settings AND, under desktop settings it appears as an option. When checked, the radio defaults to Agame on strartup, with the Home button, and when using the back button from the radio.

    I recommend the update works quite well.
    improvements I have noticed in my unit.
    OBD2 connects at last.
    GPS connects quickly.
    and kavirz I have no problems with the radio app, it works perfectly for me and the station names are appreciated.
    change ui theme without having to go through factory mode.
    I like it a lot, thank you very much
