I thing its same on MEGA mega.nz posted on Jan 4,22
New latest update from manufacturer. This is untested and full experimental (Released from manufacturer but I have not tested it at all). This is only for advanced users that want to try it before I test it. Use at own risk!!!
I don't normally put updates here that haven't been tested. This is an exception as I don't have time for the next few weeks to test the software so you have been warned.
Thank you very much for this thread, but I'm not sure what's brand is my stereo, but looks the same as yours. I attached a photo for you, if you can tell me that i can use your firmware to upgrade. I'm having some real wifi troubles, i can't turn it on. ThanksI 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 Stable update (20211224):
New update was given to me on 15/08/2022.
I have just started testing the above and it will take a few weeks to see if there is any downsides to updating the radio. So far, Radio app is the different version with the circle but it now does save settings when closing and reopening the 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.
K2001Q on your radio is the same generation as this thread. Just install cpuz to confirm screen resolution as per the first thread and you can then update the radio.
