  4. After the MMB system detects the upgrade package, the screen will show a screen to upgrade. According to the point, select [Upgrade Now]
  5. The system will automatically copy the OTA upgrade file to the MMB box
  6. After the copy is completed, the system will restart and install (MMB box indicator light effect: red flashing)
  7. After installation is complete, the program will be loaded (MMB box indicator light effect: blue flashing)

Firmware per Carplay AI Boxes (Qualcomm / Rockchip / Allwinner) Android 7/9

Questo thread è stato creato per fornire e mantenere aggiornamenti del firmware e discutere problemi / bug Firmware per Carplay AI Boxes (Qualcomm / Rockchip / Allwinner) Android 7/9
Se hai un nuovo firmware, per favore PM e lo inserirò nel thread principale. Se pubblichi missioni, assicurati di dire agli altri quale stai usando -> Vedi i riquadri sotto

La procedura di aggiornamento è per lo più la stessa su tutte le scatole:

NOTA: (non spegnere il box MMB durante il processo di aggiornamento)
  1. Preparazione:
  2. Disimballare lo zip e posizionare il file Update.zip decompresso nella directory principale di una scheda SD
  3. Rinomina il file di aggiornamento OTA in update.zip o upgrade_pkg.zip;
  4. Dopo che il sistema MMB rileva il pacchetto di aggiornamento, lo schermo mostrerà se eseguire l'aggiornamento. In base al punto, seleziona [Aggiorna ora]
  5. Il sistema copierà automaticamente il file di aggiornamento OTA nella casella MMB
  6. Al termine della copia, il sistema verrà riavviato e installato (effetto della spia dell'indicatore della casella MMB: rosso lampeggiante)
  7. Al termine dell'installazione, il programma verrà caricato (effetto luminoso dell'indicatore della casella MMB: blu lampeggiante)
  8. Al termine dell'avvio, si accederà all'interfaccia principale della casella MMB (effetto luminoso dell'indicatore della casella MMB: blu)

Al momento ci sono 5 differenti box disponibili su ali:

Box AI per Android 9 basato su Qualcomm:
https://de.aliexpress.com/item/1005002504763314.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.655c4c4dqiApNU
Firmware più recenti:
2021-05-10 (presenta alcuni problemi audio casuali / cali a seconda dell'auto)

Box AI per Android 9 basato su Rockchip:
https://de.aliexpress.com/item/1005002449034431.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.4dd831faAIkqhg
Firmware più recenti:
non ancora disponibile, inviami un pm se ne hai uno.

TUTTI i chipset Allwinner basati su Android 7 AI Box CP600 4/32 (ce n'è uno più vecchio su uno con 2/32 e il firmware dovrebbe funzionare anche qui):
https://de.aliexpress.com/item/1005001419749185.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dFytKUG

Non sono responsabile per i firmware forniti e non sono lo sviluppatore, quindi non farmi domande o richiedere funzionalità!
ciao, ho un box basato su allwinner Android 7 AI Box CP600 4/32, posso aggiornarlo con il software per Android 9 AI Box basato su Qualcomm o Box AI per Android 9 basato su Rockchip?
come fare ? Grazie mille

No, you can't. Different chipsets
ok thanks a lot, I can ask two things:
1- on the allwinner, the back and forth keys to change track and music do not work, do you have a solution?
2- always on the allwinner, is there the possibility of having the wireless carplay function, present in the Qualcomm based Android 9 AI Box?

thank you very much

Hi friend. I am someone who deals with this issue and still follows it. The cp-600 software can be installed on this device, but there is a wifi driver incompatibility. Apart from that, the device works very fast and compatible. I tried to add original rom applications at least 50 times but failed. At least it will be a super rom if youtube, chrome and file manager can be added. simple and fast .. follow up ..

Hi all,
I have just installed the 2021-04-08 firmware on my MMB.
The Readme.txt says that French and Turkish language are added but it seems that french is missing.
Any idea how to install new language on the system ?
thanks

    There is a new version (20210703) of the ApplePie firmware (for the Android 9 Qualcomm box). Got it from the seller on AliExpress:


    Learn about some update details of the 20210703 version. Share with everyone.

    Added support for some models, such as Mercedes S-Class.
    The user can turn off the "insert TF card, automatically copy log" function. An option is made in ApplePie Settings.
    Support one-key split screen.

    can I get the steps again on how to apply the firmware update on the Qm8888 apple pie box?

    I tried the general steps at the start of this thread but my qm8888 just boots up as per normal
    How to upgrade the firmware for ApplePie:

    Obtain the firmware upgrade package, the file named "update.zip", the file size is about 1.35G, copy update.zip to the TF card (directly in the root directory, no need to build a folder), no need to decompress, Then insert the upgrade card. The upgrade card does not have to be a blank card, and it does not have to be an upgrade file, that is, the TF card you use every day can be used as an upgrade card.

    The system detects that there is an upgrade file in the card, a pop-up window will ask whether to upgrade, immediately (within 20 seconds) click the "Cancel" button to cancel the upgrade operation, please pull out the upgrade card; if you click "OK" or do nothing ( Wait 20 seconds for the timeout", the system will enter the upgrade operation.

    First, copy the upgrade file to the internal storage space. The copy progress will go from 0% to 100%. After the copy is completed, the system will pop up a window prompting that it will automatically restart. At this point, you can observe the red indicator light of the box. When it starts to flash, you can already pull out the upgrade card. The remaining steps will be completed automatically. You just need to wait to enter the ApplePie interface again.

    The entire upgrade process takes about 10 minutes.

    Note: It is best not to power off during the upgrade process, and do not pull out the TF card during the process of copying the upgrade file to the internal memory. Of course, if the above situation occurs, ApplePie will not be damaged, and it will work normally after restarting. It's just that your upgrade process was cancelled this time, and the normal upgrade cannot be completed.
