my car is kia carnival 2021 of china,and i can get in the engineering mod by this methord,but i can not get the ADB.
Hi mate, I have an Elantra and the same problem as yours. I recorded the update on a usb drive, but after I put it in the car it starts making sounds like I recorded music. It won't start the update. This is the update that is for Canada because my car is imported from there. I tried to write an update for Europe, but it says to insert a suitable memory card to start the update. Can you guide how to deal with your problem? After the update, do you have a larger choice of language in the menu?Hi,
I have finally updated my from-the-factory software. From 2015 to the newest one for 2016, Sorento.
If anyone searches for info - I used 64GB microSD formatted to fat32 and copied past downloaded files from Map Updater. Into the adapter and to the slot in the car. Half an hour later, it was done.
1. I have an Android Auto icon, but it is grey. Need to check my phone with cables and see if it will work.
2. I am able to enter EngMode by Setup/General/Storage and 5x left + 1x right + 2702
3. The mode is the same as before, with lots of Korean words, and any changes I made are not saved like radio coding. After the restart, nothing changed.
Can someone help me with this?
EDIT: Is it possible that I'm entering a dealer mode or putting in an access code that has not allowed me to save my changes?

When the card is larger than 32 GB, exFat passes, if it is 32 GB, it is Fat32. Not a problem on Windows. Unfortunately, I don't have a micro SD slot. I only have Usb. I'll try again until it does. I still go into engineering mode, but I don't have an option to change the language, it won't let me access the Android settings.Hey,
The process is simple but, as I wrote, I used microSD with SD adapter. I have a 64gb but it does the job. I only needed to format it to fat32, that is not supported by windows 10. So, I downloaded an external software for that. After the format to fat32 I just copy past the files that I downloaded via MapUpdater. When I inserted the adapter to the car SD map slot the update run automatically.
Have you been able to enter the engineering mode?
With my card I needed to format it to fat32 and then it works. As for languages, there are only few like US, French, Spanish and Korean but my Kia is from US.When the card is larger than 32 GB, exFat passes, if it is 32 GB, it is Fat32. Not a problem on Windows. Unfortunately, I don't have a micro SD slot. I only have Usb. I'll try again until it does. I still go into engineering mode, but I don't have an option to change the language, it won't let me access the Android settings.
What I know from Russians from this forum you cannot just update from US, Canadian to EU. If you force the update it can brick your device. There is a way but requires to send the whole unit to some guys.
But I had WiFi before and after the update I also have an Android Auto and Car Play.I log in with 5+1 clicks on both sides of the update. Nothing happens on the clock menu. And my choice of language is the same as yours. I don't have Wi-Fi either, but I found an option to connect wirelessly to the phone. A box from the Chinese (let's put it this way so it doesn't sound like an advertisement)
Someday, if someone finds it and shares it, we will be very grateful. Until then, we'll wait and hope.
Sorry for my English!

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.
