You can manage with this app (Mike's) many useful other apss from cmdroid.com
I got Jazz 2016 bought in 2019 from Germany and from two years I use: Google maps 8.4.1 (no voice recognition), Yanosik (Polish navigation app), skytube (playing YouTube films while driving), totalcmd as file manager. Earlier I also installed Waze and Sygic but now these apps I was mentioned above, are better.

Please, read this thread.
There is much useful information.
Start from Mike's permission app.
Do not update to RC8.
Stay with RC6 or RC6.1
Install other apps.
Have some fun.
I actually upgraded to RC8. It was a lot of detail to the upgrade. I had to find the correct 3 files to the upgrade process for my leftside driven car. I have a crv 2015. The HU became a little bit faster and the GPS also faster at finding a point.

But its almost not noticeable.

@MaKi83 ut seems like your android auto app now works better.

The permissions I use:
Third party (it gave me a lot of problems when I used the option "preinstalled"
Last mode on
Sound out on

Now the problem with the backing camera is gone. Last mode works with no problems. I'm gonna keep testing it.

I deleted ESfileexplorer and also started using totalcommander. ESfileexplorer was a bit buggy. And I was afraid it could interfere with your app.

Cheers.

I've tried downloading file commander but when I click on the link the window disappears straight away. I'd say I need this as any other apps I got from cmdroid won't install as the install button is greyed out on the Cars Android unit.
I don't install through the HU anymore. I install through third party app. Have you tried installing through an USB, or directly from the internal memory of the headunit?

Sorry should have said USB I factory reset the whole thing twice now even trying to install Mike's Permissions won't work as the install button is greyed out.

Are you on Rc6? Have you had Mike's permissions before?

Because If you haven't you eventually need to downgrade. Do you know how to check your RC?

Because If it is greyed out you probably ain't on Rc6.

To check the build version of the Connect there are 2 possibilities.
1. Home button - Settings - Infos: "Build Number"
2. Press and hold "MENU"+"Day/Night"+"POWER" button (in this order) for about five seconds until the display changes.
Select "Detail Information & Setting". Select "Version". Write down the Main Soft (SH) and Build (TEGRA) version information.
(Press ‘Return’ three times until you get out of the diagnostic menu.)

Example infos from RC 5:
the main soft always is 31.00.CF or 30.00.CF
the build is 0C.091.01.0021 or 0C.091.01.1123
depending on the HW version of the Connect there are different combinations possible.

About RC 6: found this info in forums. Build number is 0E.094.00.1123. So I think there are also 2 versions (other version 0E.094.00.0021 ?).

Quoted this from an older post. If you check the thread in the search engine you will find everything. I can point you out.

@Truckermal if you already had Mike's permissions you probably are in rc 6 or an upgrade RC8. If you factory reset an RC8 with Mike's permissions you delete everything and need to do the process again.

Hi Guys,
I've found a new problem with Google Maps on the unit, it seems Google knock out Google Maps 8. When you open the app a message advice it and the app doesn't open anymore. Have you found the same problem? Have you tried a newer version?

That's right
They said, there will be no longer support for older maps.
Of course, they are joking, that if you would like to use GM still, you should move to newer than 9.64 GM version or Android newer than 4.3.
And the solution, according to Google statement, is to use GM via internet browser.

EDIT: That's interesting: some minutes ago, when I do restart of the system (in garage), GM starts and seems to work fine. Tomorrow I will check it up on the road, and then write some more.

Well I tried to give it a try, the web version... and I was happy that my chrome browser can get GM !!!... but only for preview...
no actual Navigation, as for this it seems we need GM GO app, which only works, wait for it... with android 4.1... so this doesn't seems to be a solution for us :-(

And **** goes on.
Unfortunately, GM after catching the GPS signal automatically shows, that it is not valid in my Honda Connect.
Of course, I need to install internet browser like Chrome (internal browser is also not valid to find Google) and try to work with GM online.
In fact, Polish GPS&Navigation app (called Yanosik) works fine. Also SkyTubeExtra. So, these problems are connected strictly with GM.

Hey everyone,
I just bought a 2016 Civic. Big upgrade from my 2001 golf.
I love it!

But I can't get to install Spotify on it, and waze.
I've looked into it abit, and tried Honda Hack but it doesn't support android 4.0.4.
I seem to be going around in circles.

I have tried the APK install and its greyed out, i cant click it.
I have also tried renaming it, still nothing..

I'm not very techy, i know bits but not tons.

Can anyone help at all? Or point me in the correct direction?
Would much appreciate it.
TIA.

1st.- You are in the correct forum ^^
2nd .- the answer you are looking for is somewhere in this thread... I think someone did a summary 2-3 pages away from here... (else the initial answer is many pages away...)

It would be nice to be able to ping the answer so that you don't have to search... but i guess you will need to do some reading ;-)

3rd .- knowing the car you have is a great start!, you must also find out which navigation model you have, which kerner its running, and other stuff... again, from point 2, I am sure you can find that through the posts (or maybe search for RC6, i think its a good keyword)

Thank you for the lovely reply :)

Honestly im terrible at all this stuff, I will have a read though!

How/what is kerner etc you mentioned? haha.
Sorry.

From my short poke about looks like i need to downgrade from 4.0.4 to RC6?
I will do more digging.

    In makis android auto app. If you go to setting you will se it is set to 60 fps. It's unnecessary, try the 30 fps and I noticed it worked a bit faster with Spotify and in the menu in the android auto app.
    Agreed, this makes the app so much more useable!

    I have rigged an old Android and tethered my iPhone to work and the operation works so well. As we know calls come through the original HU but reconnects (at least for me) straight away! @MaKi83 you've done a brilliant job, you really have!

    Also side note, the app icon is great too!

    No. This is not your wrong behaviour.
    As far as I can well remember, MaKi93 wrote some days ago, that it is one of the unsolved problem yet.
    Well it doesn't hurt to share permissions. Just to compare.

    Although I am not passing audio through the app, I am keeping the bluetooth usage apart to send music, etc.

    Hola colegas, ¿cómo podría usar la aplicación Android Auto junto con audio directo desde bluetooth o fm? con las indicaciones gps y con la música por separado sería un gran logro.
    Hey we try to keep this forum in English ^^

    Pero, sigue los permisos que puse en mi post anterior. Son para tener el audio desde bluetooth (creo yo que funcionara tambien para FM) y android auto de forma separada.

    Hi, does anyone one know if its possible to delete the Garmin folder with the maps? Not loading in my Civic and seems to be from corrupt map data. Thanks.
    I deleted it... the app I mean... as I am not using it in my HR-V...
    So you can delete it, no idea how to recover it or solve your issue but I did remove it.

    Hello Guys,

    Last time I showed you how to install custom application. Now it's time to move on.
    I present you complete solution. Not hardware, but software :)
    I created application which allow you to change process_controls.list and allowed_installations.list direct in your Honda head unit !!
    I note that it works and it has been tested a little in my Honda with android 4.0.4.

    I spent some time working on it, so give me some thanks if you use it.
    I don't expect any payments, but if you would like to send me some beers. I will sent you my paypal address by PM.

    I tested the application only a little. So it could have some bugs. Use it for your own risk.
    Do full backup (in two formats) before you start changing something, there is option for this. I haven't tested restore option yet. It should work, but I'm not guarantee this.
    I don't know what each flags and options in process control mean. I haven't tested this yet. Maybe someone would like to do some manual?

    Warnings:
    1. I'm not responsible for any damage of your head unit. Use it for your own risk.
    2. Don't remove HondaAppCenter_A1.apk from allowed installations, because if something goes wrong you won't be able to install any new applications or new versions.
    3. Be careful with changing version number. If you increase it then updating Honda oryginal applications won't overwrite your changes in process controls.
    If you decrease it then reboot you head unit will overwrite your changes.
    4. Be careful with changing permissions flags in existing packages and applications.
    5. And last be careful when you driving.

    Enjoy!!!

    Hello guys,

    Firstly I would like to thanks all of you who support me by donations and sending beers ;) Special thanks to CMhonda group for their donation.

    Some of you asked me to implement new features to Honda Permissions app. It took me awhile but here it is. New version of Honda Permissions - v 1.1.0

    What's new:
    - Added search functionality in Allowed installations and Process Controls list
    - Added copy action in Process Controls list (now you can create new permission by copy settings from another)
    - Now you can save/restore backup files direct to/from usb device (you can choose any path you want)

    As always: I'm not responsible for any damage of your head unit. Use it for your own risk.

    Enjoy

    Step By Step Tutorial

    Ok Here is a Step by Step Tutorial on how I have been able to install any application on my Honda Connect RC7 .

    Disclaimer: I am not responsible of any damage this could make to your device. Do it at your own risk. The only thing I know is that it worked fine on my RC7 unit… I hope this could help you to install application on your head unit.

    How to check your version :
    Go to the android parameter and click on About this device . You should find Build Number : 0F.095.01.1123. Ok You have the RC7

    RfWGzkE.jpg


    What you need:
    A – Hardware:
    1/ USB OTG Cable - Female A to Micro A ( https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11604 )
    2/ USB A Male To A Male Cable ( https://www.amazon.com/DTOL-Feet-USB-Male-Cable/dp/B000BSJFFC )
    3/ Screwdriver philips ph00

    B – Software:
    1/ iRoot
    2/ Honda Permission from S_Mike

    Here is the files I used: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hl4egyh1x49y14r/AABd2cZYYzmh6Mt0MPQcE9Mea?dl=0

    Step One: Preparing your computer and the iRoot software.
    Before everything, I have installed the Intel Android Drivers (not sure it is important but …)

    A/install iRoot on your Windows computer
    B/Go to the install directory of iRoot ( in my case this is c:\Program File (x86)\iRoot\ )
    C/There you should find a directory ( in my case this is \1.8.9.21144) which contain kinguser.zip
    D1/ Easy Way : Replace it with the one I have included in my dropbox link.
    D2/ Hard Way : edit the kinguser.zip file and replace the kinguser.apk with the application that you want to inject. In this case we want to inject the Honda Permissions application from S_Mike. I have downloaded the one from cmdroid.com that’s why it is HondaAppCenter_A1.apk. Just rename it as kinguser.apk and replace it in the kinguser.zip

    Step Two: Connecting the device to your computer


    1 – Enable the Developer Option

    A/start the device
    B/Press and hold "MENU"+"Day/Night"(Brightness)+"POWER" button (in this order) for about five seconds until the display changes
    C/Select "Detail Information & Setting"

    j0lGb87.jpg


    D/Select “Functional Setup”

    mvlUGT0.jpg


    E/Select “Developer Option Enable”

    Dn2lrak.jpg


    F/Select “On” to enable the developer option menu.

    sgQ0fiH.jpg


    G/Push Return to come back to the Welcome screen

    2 – Enable the USB Debug mode in the developer option Menu

    A/Go to the Android settings.
    B/Select Developer Options

    6Kep1UA.jpg


    C/Tick USB Debugging. ( I have also tick the Stay awake but I don’t think it would change anything…)

    tofmTuZ.jpg


    3 – Connecting the device to the computer

    A/Flip the screen (push the eject button)
    B/Unscrew the 4 screws which hold the screen

    KY0FR6B.jpg


    C/Get the screen slowly out (it could be tighten but mind the ribbon cable of the screen !)
    D/Hold the screen with one hand and use the other hand get the plastic cache ( just above the ribbon cable) out.

    DgCDlEB.jpg


    PcUoyc7.jpg



    tGojL7j.jpg


    E/Use something to support the screen.
    F/ Now that the screen is raised, you can access to the micro USB Type A port.

    ZVBLPyh.jpg


    G/Plug your cable in that port

    1ZI7kxR.jpg


    Step Three : Inject the Honda Permission application

    A/Start iRoot

    WfT1iPI.jpg


    B/Plug the cable to your computer and you should see

    i32IiNz.jpg


    C/Wait until this

    uAlML5U.jpg


    D/Click on Root

    E/Wait ( The sound of your head unit might stop sometimes)

    vYRg4f2.jpg


    F/Now you should have that screen and your unit should restart.

    PVI2C2F.jpg


    G/After restart you should find the Honda Permission installed.

    Step Four : Installing any application

    A/Start Honda Permission
    B/You can Edit the HondaAppcenter_A1.apk (leave your finger on it until the pencil arrives on the top right side of the screen)
    C/replace the “Sig digest sha256” with PREINSTALL value
    This should activate the “HondaAppCenter_A1.apk” BackDoor.

    BUT in my case The Install button was still greyed out…

    Here is my solution:

    A/ Start Honda Permission
    B/Click on the + button in the Allowed Installations menu

    Zd4pq2Q.jpg


    C/Create a new rule with :
    • APK Name : application.apk
    • Package name:
    • Sig digest sha256 : PREINSTALL

    J1QfyfZ.jpg


    D/Now you can install any application that you have renamed application.apk.

    Installing app on RC7

    Hi everyone,

    I have a European Honda Civic Tourer Executive (who cares ?) latest model with a Honda Connect RC7 (0F.095.01.1123).

    However (thanks to @sobvan) I have ordered a micro-USB-type-A cable and used a USB Male A to Male A cable to connect it to my computer.

    Like sobvan I was able to locate the "allowed_installations.list" file but I wasn’t able to get the root access to modify it.

    So I have tried some application to root it ( Kingoroot, SRSroot,…) without any luck…

    BUT the latest version of iRoot (iRoot_171024.zip) has been able to inject the Kinguser.apk. The app is working fine but isn’t able to root the unit (Anyway I’m not sure that I was looking for a rooted device).

    So I tried to modify iRoot software to inject HondaPermission.apk and it did the trick !

    Simply go to your “\Program File (x86)\iRoot\1.8.9.21144” directory.
    You should find a kinguser.zip file.
    Edit this file with winzip or winrar or whatever.
    Remove the kinguser.apk file.
    Rename your HondaPermission.apk to kinguser.apk and copy it in the kinguser.zip of the iRoot directory.
    Now launch iRoot with your device connected (in debug USB mode !).
    Your unit should reboot and then you should find the Honda Permission installed !

    Now launch Honda Permission and in “Allowed installation” modify the HondaAppcenter_A1.APK rule (leave your finger on it until the pencil arrives on the top right side of the screen) and replace the “Sig digest sha256” with PREINSTALL value.

    And that’s it now you can install applications on the F****ing RC7 version. (I have not tested on the RC8, but it should work)

    Big thanks to sobvan who found the port and the iRoot team for their great software.

    Some of you have posted in the past about wanting to mirror their phone to the HU.
    Up to now, no one seems to have achieved it very successfully, if at all.

    However, now there's a way. Using TeamViewer.

    Install THIS app on the phone (TeamViewer Host for Android)
    If you have a Samsung phone, there's a TeamViewer Host for Samsung HERE

    Then install THIS on the Honda HU, renaming the file, obviously, to HondaAppCenter_A1.apk to be able to install it.

    Run the Host on the phone and the Remote Control on the HU to connect to the phone. You need to be connected via WiFi Hotspot of course.
    Tilt phone Landscape. You can now see and control phone from HU screen, including running any apps on phone on the HU, even Google Maps.

    Working for me so far. Hope this helps anyone interested.
