I have an Xtrons HU as well. I'm not sure the exact buttons to press to get into recovery, but I have done it, so it's possible. Try holding down power button until it totally powers off, then keep holding it until it starts to reboot, eventually you might get in.

On my Xtrons, it doesn't like dupdate.img name, and preferes update.img... but for whatever reason, it gets an error during flashing malaysk's rom, and reboots back to stock rom. I need to look more into it... it seems like it is flashing rom, but at some point an error flashes by too fast to read. I only tried it once so far, will again when I get more time to play.

On my unit, I tried the combo power/reset without any success. Before I read up on this, I did however get into recovery once by accident with just the power button. So after playing around with this more, I can get into recovery consistently doing this:

1) Hold power button until unit turns off and (on my unit) light flashes.
2) Let go and then press the power button again. This somehow shuts off the unit since it would normally just reboot after releasing the button it seems.
3) Press the power button again to turn it on. It should hopefully go into recovery.

I have no idea if this works on other units, but I have not seen a description of this in any of the posts/videos I have seen.

same to me. XTRONS HU, got into recovery by the same method but then, cannot flash. The unit is a GS.

Did you make any progress?

da_anton, did you ever get into recovery mode? I have the Xtrons PF75ATTA which looks the same as yours. After changing the /system directory to read write and adding 3 lines to the build.prop file. The unit only showed the car navigation lollipop screen and the android/car logo.

I have tried almost every combination of power and reset button. How did you do it in the end?

Thanks

Yes I managed to do it. First I would recommend you have a really silent place. You can hear some very quiet sounds at different stages. At least I could.
I managed it that way:
  1. press the power button till the unit is off. I can hear a sound like a "plop". But very quiet. That is my indicator that the unit is off now
  2. release the button. You should now hear another quiet "plop" when the unit is turning on again.
  3. wait maybe 1sec or even more to press and hold the power button again.
  4. the unit now enters recovery

It took me a while to got it working so you have to try it a couple of times.

Thanks, I managed to do it, took me about 20 minutes. I have to say I couldn't hear the noises you were referring to but just knowing the process worked only on timing and the power button narrowed down the possibilities. Thanks again

Xtrons TD696AS recovery mode buttons

This method works on the TD696AS as well.. Press and hold power button until dvd leds flash 3 times and then solid on., release and press momentarily a couple of more times. Wait a few seconds and unit will restart into recovery mode.

Regards,

Does the unit needs to be off already or on?
Try to enter recovery mode on pcd86clta

It worked on a Xtrons PB76FSFAP-S.

Thanks.

Just installed Oreo on my px5 Xtrons unit. (Mine doesn't have physical buttons minus the reset button).

From any point...hold the reset button for 25 seconds, let go of it...when you see the boot animation press the reset button again (not hold).

You will have to use the reset button as the method for going down through the menu...then hold reset button for it to choose the item.

Worked for me. :)

Xtrons PB7646BAP Recovery

On the Xtrons PB7646BAP:

I tried everything mentioned in this thread. Nothing worked because my unit does not flash lights or make a "plop" sound. As long as the the car ACC is on, the lights on the unit are on. There is, however, one way I can tell if the unit is on or off after pressing the power button -- by the hissing sound from the speakers.

1. Hold power button down until you no longer hear speakers hissing. Then release button.
2. Not fast, and not too slow: Press then release the button. Then press and release a second time.
3. Unit should come up in recovery. If it doesn't, repeat above.

This sometimes doesn't work. Sometimes because I press too quickly or too slowly. You will have to do it a few times to get the feel of the rhythm you should use.
