The firmware has been rooted

Hi localos

I tried to download the firmware, extract the boot.img from the zip and patched it with magisk, I repacked the boot.img inside the .zip file, renamed the .zip to update_pkg.zip as stated in the installation instructions of MMB but I got an error when I try to update it. Can you eventually help me? Here is the link to the official firmware: (MMB Carplay Android 7.0)


Thank you

Don't you want magisk rooted
well. magisk is working (I loaded it on bluestacks in windows) the problem is that when i put the modified boot.img inside the update_pkg.zip, when I start the update I got an error. I would like to use the standard MMB Firmware with root permissions.

Are you able to load the entire firmware into bluestacks for testing?

    „Need screen mirroring and CarPlay wireless in one device” read carefully

    Guys I think there is a misunderstanding here.

    The Car's Headunit has to support CarPlay and/or AndroidAuto, so that the CP-600 or such boxes can be connected and used. So, the CP-600 uses the Apple CarPlay protocol to operate on the Car's Headunit screen, GPS and audio / video / UI controls.

    What xprox3000 is obviously wants is that the CP-600 itself again offers a CarPlay wireless interface to connect his iPhone to the CP-600 - which is not provided by such boxes.

    Again, it's just a misunderstanding about what those CarPlay Boxes can do and what not

    Since some users don't like the floating buttons of the standard launcher (CP600 device) and I haven't found a solution, I have now put my hands on it and removed it.

    I thought I'd share my file with the community.

    But first a little disclaimer:

    This is just a test. Please always make Backups! It works on my device, but I can't tell if it works on others. The base file is from the rooted firmware MIUOS1.0_010_288_2021053119, which I prefer and can confirm as working.

    I am not responsible for any damage. Since it's a system app, the file can damage the device. Install it at your own risk.

    Please remember to install a custom NavBar App, such as "Navigation Bar" from the PlayStore beforehand, otherwise navigation will no longer be possible.

    In addition, a second launcher should be installed to be on the safe side so that it can be used if you have any problems with the default launcher.

    !!! Attention, the installation requires root and the APK can't be installed as a normal app. It has to run as a system app !!!

    Installation:

    1. Install any File Explorer with Root-Access from the Google PlayStore, e.g. "Root Explorer"
    2. Open app and make /system/app writable
    3. Navigate to /system/app/MiuDrive
    4. Create a Backup of your original MiuDrive.apk file
    5. Download the changed MiuDrive.apk
    6. Copy the new MiuDrive.apk to /system/app/MiuDrive and overwrite the existing file
    7. Restart the device

    Now the floating buttons should no longer be visible.

    Hope it's helpful for someone..

    tell him it is clearly fake os. Demand a refund and purchase from joyeauto directly if needed. Just my opinion sir. or ask at least for some partial refund if you keep the box.
    @Andason74 , without your help and guidance I would have been left with a device that didn't meet my requirements. I have managed to get the seller to agree to a full refund once I return the item back to him.
    I am truly grateful for your support, you're an asset to this forum!
    Thank you.

    Yes, but noone has done it yet, the boot.img inside the Update.zip must ne patched with magisk and Afterwards the Update.zip must be resigned.

    Hi I have this version of AI box
    https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...a2756.order-detail-ta-ta-b.0.0.5abb2fc2wCcoEN


    There is also rebranded version from Joyeauto with 4GB RAM, generally it is the same product:
    https://www.joyeauto.com/mmb-multim...-for-the-cars-with-oem-factory-apple-carplay/

    Joyeauto provides also download section for this device, where is a new ROM:

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/oyjsw7s4q6dmvrm/AADy_yP8FC3JqnIrgjZrK-Gea?dl=0

    Is there anybody who can make custom rooted firmware?

    Btw. It can be plugged to any Android phone/ tablet via Carlinkit Wried CarPlay Smart Link Dongle for Android https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33038683679.html

    It works like in the car, it is good for playing with and installing in home.

    Bluetooth is blocked only for phone connection. I plugged cheap BT dongle to the USB port of the AI box and now I can connect anything including of OBD2.

    What is annoying is autohiding on-screen navigation panel. It would be better make the always visible navigation bar and all apks opening resized in the rest of the screen.

    Generally it is pretty interesting and good working device.

    ladies and gentlemen. the new carplay box has been released.
    it is a beast! holy moly, thoae chinese went all in on this box.

    It looks a little bit bigger than CP boxes, but still can be hidden somewhere in the car. Would you please measure dimensions? Seller has incorrect info about this (10.8 x 8.9 x 10.4 cm), it does not look 8.9 cm thick.

    Would you confirm that it needs only OTG-USB cable connected to cars’ Carplay port to work? No extra power cable nedded? Does it take GPS and MIC signal from the car or do you need to plug extra devices? Because I see all those accessories at the seller’s page…

    What about Bluetooth settings? Can the phone and OBD2 be connected? What is the quality of calls?

    Is there some car buttons mapper apk installed? Which car buttons works and does not works for you?
    1. See the below picture. It would be correct.

    2.It works only otg-usb. Not necessary any cable to working.

    3.it takes car original gps and mic signal. You don't need to plug extra devices.

    4. You can connect Bluetooth devices. But I don't use phone connection so I don't know the quality of calls

    5. The car buttons work properly maybe.

    I just received few hours ago. I am still working for my family. If you ask more detail(such as video upload), I can solve your questions.

    I used cp600, px6 all of ai box. But this new box is the best for now.
