INFO FOR KIA PICANTO 2021 WITH DISPLAY AUDIO 8" CARPLAY ANDROID AUTO GEN2V
1. engineering mode 2400
2. Variant Coding 1200 confirmed.

I could enable, in variant coding, 2 additional icons. (DRVM) Rear View Monitor while driving and Telematics. Click apply and it will restart with these two additional technologies however UVO hardware (sim card) seems to be missing. so UVO does not work.. My only advice is to activate DRVM only until telematics solution is found. by some advanced users or experts in this field (I doubt it but hope dies last)..
Thank, it works also

Thanks, it works also for Kia Stonic with Gen2V audio systems, but I have a question, are you able to save the changes on the engineering mode?

Hey All,

I have upgraded my i30 compact gen5 to the latest version (it wasnt updated since i bought it - 2019).
I have a usb flash drive fat32 4 gb, it was perfectly fine in the old system, but it is not working since the update.
Does anybody experienced similar?
Any solution?
I am able to open it in computer.

Thanks

Still no solution how to get into Compact Gen5 engineering mode?
I would like to do a proper factory reset because it is slow like hell.
Is there any way to crack the firmware files?

I own a Kia Niro EU. L Edition :/ with up2date firmware :'( ...

Year, the code 2400 opened up the DEALER MENU, but no one here in this thread know the ENG Code.
I used the 7 - 3 - 1 input box for that.

but theres one more thing !!​

guided by @Janaboy82 i used the tap 2 - 3 - 1 variant and get a OTHER INPUTBOX​

here wont work 2400 so it must be a other input axx.

Till now i havent time to check the public code varianten... maybe some one. know the code or have time to check it?! Or its just the input box with code for factory reset but i hope there is more magic behind this input box.

Does anyone try to install a different region firmware on Gen5 or Gen5W? I tried to install European firmware on US device but unsuccessful even with force update in engineering mode. I believe it does have some checks but don't know how to bypass it. Thanks.
Another thing, is there anyway to enable SVM (surround view monitor) on a rear view camera car? I see the option in Engineering Mode - Variant Coding but it seems disable the option:

Всем привет, подскажите как зайти в инженерное меню. перепробовал все варианты не подходит не один, после обновления ручки громкости и выбора поменялись местами. Хотелось бы изменить язык и мили на километры.

Hello everyone, tell me how to enter the engineering menu. I tried all the options, not one is suitable, after updating the volume knobs and the selection switch places. I would like to change the language and miles to kilometers.

    Oleg, given you are the guru of all, this question is for you if you would please take the time.

    I imported a 2019 kia cadenza sxl from USA to dubai, through the setting>navigation I can choose the speed displayed between miles and km, but it does not actually change in the cluster, my map is also stuck at the last location the car was last active in, California, in my own assumptions, i think because the car is not functioning with the gps the speed units have proven to be null, there are no controls from the cluster, just the head unit.

    I dug around on the kia navigation update program, and when I compared both firmwares provided by the USA version and Middle East "MES", (attachments below), they both use the same format, which is YG19****STD_H. The USA file was around 20gb and the middle east was 7gb, so I downloaded the MES version onto the SD card, backed up my USA version and put it in the car but to no avail, is there a way around this? A force update or something?

    Worth mentioning, I can access dealer options through the volume sequence and engineering mode through tapping 5 left to update and once to the right.

    And if others have input on the matter please dont be shy to share in, thank you all for your efforts in advance.
    Hello. Each region has its own navigation. Simply replacing the files on the SD card will not start navigation.

    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.

    Thanks!

    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?

    Inviato dal mio MI PAD 4 utilizzando Tapatalk

    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.
