4. Make sure Develper Option is enabled both HU

I have the USB flash drive ready but I don't know how to install the ES app and how to turn On Developer option on my HU
I was able to open Engineering mode but there's no APK options

Sharing this bypass to activate Harman Kardon or Bose speaker settings..
Code: JH3280
Note that you have to be connected thru bluetooth to enable..
Use google translate in your camera phones to understand the text..
You will really hear the difference.. even the equalizer settings will change once you select either of HK or Bose

    How to install the file explorer?
    put easymodoka.exe on your formatted fat32 usb flash drive then click it once it's there and it will extract all files on usb. Go to your car and insert it to passenger side usb port. your head unit will restart then viola. ES file explorer is there then you can browse everything inside your usb flash drive and install other APK.
