how i reinstall honda hack after factory reset and upgraded firmware to 1F.197.60
my radio was having issues so i factory reset and upgraded firmware to 1F.197.60.
test the radio and everything was working fine. music was playing with android auto.
next thing i wanna do is have it rooted with honda hack. got to autohack.org/root page and enter the code i got from before and it stuck on the "processing, DO NOT close the browser".waited like 20 minutes everytime i tried but it didnt work. found a solution on the XDA site but it didnt work . here is how i did it.
the following was copy and paste from XDA member with the last few lines written by me
Download all files from Github.thanks to ZeRoZeRoRaZ from xda
press on the green color CODE button and download zip and extract
Navigate to the Honda Civic developer mode in the head unit and enable USB debugging.
Go to the Android settings and click ‘About’.
Click on the build number seven times.
You will get a prompt ‘please enter a passcode’.
Now click the 4 top items in the order 1, 4, 2, 3 and you’ll enable the developer mode.
Change the USB mode to ‘device’ from ‘host’ in the head unit.
Press the power, brightness button, and menu together till
you get a new menu with two options.
Open the bottom option which is named as ‘detailed information and settings’.
Enter another menu by holding the menu key.
Enter the last menu by holding the home key.
You will hear two beeps consecutively and one last beep after that.
Now you can connect your laptop using the USB A to A cable.
You will now be able to connect your laptop to the front of Android Auto/CarPlay port.
Change the USB port mode from ‘host’ to ‘device’.
The laptop will automatically start installing the drivers and
you can check whether you’re connected by typing ‘ADB devices’
and it will show up in the head unit.
Now run the following script to root the head unit.
If everything goes correctly you will see ‘success’ in the end.
Restart the head unit and in the app list you will see SuperSU (v2.78).
Run this script to install the app:
Mac/Linux: ./install.sh file.apk
Windows: install.bat file.apk
here is when the problem comes for me... i click the root.bat waited a couple minutes ,then i click the install.bat file.apk ,it pop up and disappeared and my head unit screen start to blink ,looks like its froze.
touch screen and touch keys dont work . i turn off the car off and waited a few minutes, turn it back on and see the green screen. turn it off then back on and its booting up..after checking the app list for the superSU app but its not there.i turn off the car and try all the step over again and this time the superSU app appears. after that i click on the web browser and go to autohack.org/root and enter the code add this time within 2 minutes the hondahack app pop up .then i just follow the screen instrutions with the reboot and set up all my apps.
