Thank you. Not much I can see in there unfortunately. I did see I have a MAC address for the wifi module? I wonder if there is hope of one day having modded system to enable wireless AA?

Hi. My audio system MOBIS GEN5 SCREEN 8"
I updated to the latest Version 129 and lost the nice radio interface.
I found the previous Version 126, installed it, the radio returned, but some functions, such as voice recognition, for example, began to crash.
My idea is to make one out of two updates. Take 129 as a basis, but as for the appearance of the radio, take it from 126. I suspect that I need to replace some files that are in the zip file under a password, which of course I don’t know)
In general, my idea is real? Is there anyone here who can help me with this?
maybe at least someone knows the password from the update file...

Best regards!

Cuando uso el procedimiento 7-3-1, obtengo un cuadro de contraseña de 6 dígitos para ingresar al modo de ingeniería.

¿El modo distribuidor vuelve a ser un código diferente?

¿Alguna idea?

I'm in the same boat; I have an i20 CUV (Bayon) with BC3.EUR.S5W_L.001.001.220623 installed.

I figured out how to get to a "full engineering mode" prompt (hold ⭐️, change volume dial function to browse media, go to radio, then use 7-3-1 method). This asks for a 6-digit PIN.

Thanks to @olega59 I can get into full engineering mode using 500625... but I don't think that's the menu I want to be in, because I just want to check features of the car. I think that's dealer mode and/or variant coding.

Does anyone know the 6-digit dealer mode password for the 220623 firmware?

(Side note - there is a Wi-Fi menu in the full engineering menu that seems to indicate its firmware is missing. I'm hopeful that still means wireless AA can be added in a future update, if it's really just a matter of missing firmware and not missing hardware.)

Я в той же лодке; У меня есть i20 CUV (Bayon) с установленным BC3.EUR.S5W_L.001.001.220623.

Я выяснил, как перейти к подсказке «полный инженерный режим» (удерживайте ⭐️, измените функцию набора громкости для просмотра мультимедиа, перейдите на радио, затем используйте метод 7-3-1). Это запрашивает 6-значный PIN-код.

Благодаря @olega59 я могу войти в полный инженерный режим, используя 500625... но я не думаю, что это то меню, в котором я хочу быть, потому что я просто хочу проверить характеристики автомобиля. . Я думаю, что это режим дилера и/или вариант кодирования.

Кто-нибудь знает 6-значный пароль дилерского режима для прошивки 220623?

(Примечание: в полном инженерном меню есть меню Wi-Fi, которое, кажется, указывает на то, что его прошивка отсутствует. Я надеюсь, что это все еще означает, что беспроводное сглаживание может быть добавлено в будущем обновлении, если это действительно просто вопрос отсутствия прошивка и не отсутствующее оборудование.)
To enable the dealer mode (it is generally empty) you need to use the same method 7-3-1 but only from the system information menu. Password 2400

Hi, got the same problem on my KIA Ceed 2017 JD with the latest 220519 update on the Gen5-Standard device. The 7-3-1 trick with pwd 2400 works, but I need the "big" engineering mode to disable the guidlines of my rear cam as I installed a new one. Now I have double lines at the screen. Thanks for help!

    I can enter dealer mode with pass 2400 but how to enter engineering mode? anyone know the password?
    I have a big problem with updating my radio navigation in Hyundai i30. The head unit (96550-S0100) is 8 "installed from the i30N version to my Hyundai i30 (my car version is the i30 PDE wagon 2017 compact). This head unit is working fine. All the modifications that were needed for the new head unit were done. Software version what is the head unit with is PDEN5DR.EUR.SOP.V085.180104.STD_M. Unfortunately, I can't update this software. After downloading the software for I30N PDEN.EUR.SOP.V126.220421.STD_M and trying to install it, I get a message from the head unit that reads: "The maps SD card is not compatible with the software version. Insert correct SD card. '
    Where is the mistake. How can I update this head unit?

    Just purchased a 2022 Telluride SX with the wide screen. Been reading this thread and noticing no one has found a way to get into engineering mode for these newer firmware, right?

    I would just like to side load some apps and be able to run them from the Kia main menu.

    If for some reason I am incorrect in that there’s no way to side load these newer widescreens then please do let me know. It’s Likely I may have scanned across a post or something that had that info.


    Today on the Valentines day we have made a secret go public.
    We have been able to gain root access on the Gen5WIDE headunits from europe.

    with this hack you can grab and dump the whole system.
    extracts info, keys, decrypt files and perhaps create ur own custom fw.

    we provide this info for free, so people can share knowledge and new findings.

    Please be aware that this is mainly for devs and technical nerds and linux lovers. untill someone perhaps creates a more user friendly hack.

    Happy hunting

    Hi guys,
    On my Tucson (2018 - AA) I can only access the engineering mode where I don't...

    Update on another model thet does not allow the "full engineering menu":
    2018 Elantra SEL USA version.
    NO: Cannot access the engineering mode that enables app installations (7 taps over 3 points on settings/screensaver).
    YES. Can access the engineering mode from Settings/System Info (5 taps left - 1 tab right).

    Looking forward to the hero that finds out how to jailbreak these versions!!
    Now that we can sideload apps, is there any way to let Android auto work wirelessly?

    Of course ! Just install Headunit Reloaded (4.6) on the car system.
    Set it with your phone name (SSID) used for wifi server, and leave IP blank (auto).

    The wifi mode of Headunit will automatically connect to Android Auto if this one is in developer mode and its server mode launched.

    Everything can be totally automatic, the phone can stay in the pocket. Android Auto appears on the main screen few seconds after the wifi connnection to the phone.
    Here is a video explaining everything
