I have a Carlinkit USB adapter I use with a tablet for testing outside of my vehicle. I can't get it to work with my QM8888. Anyone else get this to work?

It seems to be working for me. What is the error you get. Did you install the Easycon application on the phone. After booting up, you should be able to launch it and follow the instructions.

Hi, Thanks for replying. Actually I didn't get any error and my intentions is to make my android auto connected wirelessly using the speedplay. But when I go to speedplay, it only showed up "Waiting" .(See attached picture) I don't want to mirror my phone so I did not use easyconnect apps. I already contacted the seller about this problems and they told me that my android phone should be on android version 11 and my phone is on android version 10. So I would like to ask you is your phone is on version 11 ? Thanks

    Hello,
    I have a ux-999 with stock firmware (2021-08-17). I want to use a key mapper app to remap bluetooth controller buttons. Keymapper app needs to use accessibility service and I have it enabled. But every time you restart the car, the accessibility service is disabled for the keymapper. In fact, the same is true for other applications, their settings are also disabled. But it works fine on my galaxy s8 phone. I searched a lot on google and couldn't find a way. I haven't tried locking the app with app locking (not pinning) only on the overview (last opened apps) screen. Because I couldn't find such a feature with this firmware. If there is a firmware developer reading this and providing a solution, I would be very happy.

    Is there any description? Is this official update? What is new in this update?
    OEM Mic is now working during calls and Touchscreen issues have been fixed.

    I have the same issue. I want to use Tasker and Automate but the accessibility settings reset every time I reboot.

    Update procedure is mostly the same on all boxes:

    NOTE: (do not power off the MMB box during the upgrade process)
    1. Preparation:
    2. Unpack the downloaded zip and place the unpacked Update.zip into the root of a sd card/usb drive
    3. Rename the OTA upgrade file to update.zip or upgrade_pkg.zip (for CP600);
    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)
    8. After the start up is complete, you will enter the main interface of the MMB box (MMB box indicator light effect: blue)


    If you want to completly factoryreset a device you can try the following PINs:

    0808
    2691
    0312



    If you encounter any problems please contact your seller and tell them your head unit (version).
    Not all car manufactures have implemented the carplay service correctly, so consider also updating your head unit on next service or contact you dealer for it.

    General discussions about these boxes are found here:

    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.
