You can see mine here>

Although I am not passing audio through the app, I am keeping the bluetooth usage apart to send music, etc.
Yeah I would like to play music from my Bluetooth. But I have been having problems, because the app forced the sound to go through the app. Even when I didn't use the sound out option. The Bluetooth sound also disconnected, but started functioning when I disconnected the phone.

I will try your settings. Thanks! 🙏🏽

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.

Lo siento,
Oye intentamos mantener este foro en inglés ^^

I'm sorry mate, the browser's automatic translator messed me up. I have been testing configurations for days, including yours and it has not worked well for me. I have managed to get bluetooth and gps audio to work separately but everything sounds from the left speaker.

aaa yes, that is the only downside :( cant manage to get all the sounds from all the speakers...
Well false, I actually managed once. But i was using a different phone to send the information to android auto, and my phone in the bluetooth sound... weirdly (dont know why or how) i got bluetooth sound on all speakers while having android auto running.

I'm this unhappy guy, who is an owner of the Honda Jazz 2016 model without onbard navigation (Garmin). The app is present in the system, but I'm not sure, if it is possible and safe to remove it completely.
But, I also didn't try to delete.

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.

Thanks, did you manually delete the app files or just uninstall? I have tried uninstall many times but the map data still persists.

Hi. This is a great thread. Has been going on for years. Congrats to all who have contributed.
I own a 2017 HRV with an ID code 6vp3 and I´m wanting to upgrade to RC8 without Factory data reset, to be able to install new SW besides Waze and Spotify which I already have.
Now that ID code is not listed on the Update Matrix; only 6vp1 and 6vp4, and a NA which I don´t know what it means. I´ve been doing my research but haven´t found an answer. Can anyone tell me which are the correct files to use for my vehicle? Many thanks

Hey there, I think mine was something like 6VP0...
I ended up going into the settings system and checking the android version, the tegra versions, and the FW version, which gave me a better idea of what I was running and if it was compatible (using the matrix information).
Once I detected that my versions where the exact same as the ones in the matrix I was confident enough to do the downgrade and upgrade... and it all worked :)

Thx emilic. Yes I thought of that but my files are different to those on the matrix. SH is the same as ID code NA; Tegra EC/NC is similar except for the ending which is ***_T7AA_01 and Tegra is OE.094.00.1123. None of these A2 are listed ...

Some days ago I saw presentation of Honda Jazz VX version on Youtube.
And I wonder if it could be possible to find the image of the HondaConnect installed in that car.
It seems on this video, that there is an old radio (with many physical buttons, like in old Honda Connect cars) but with the new Android, including AndroidAuto.
Maybe... maybe it could be the best solution to modify our cars with an old IceCreamSandwich-based radio?

Hi, Honda CRV owner here :)

@MaKi83, first of all, thank you very very very much for your work :) You have done something I always thought was impossible, to see Android Auto on my Honda Connect :).

It works on my CRV, it's laggy though, I haven't tested the 30fps option yet, I'll try it later.

I just wanted to ask if the version I have (from April 14), is the latest one?

Thanks!!!

CR-V 2016 owner here with RC6. So, since I'm ****ing hyped up asf rn about AA working, I cant find a freaking thread how to install AA on headunit. Wich commands do I need to type in Permission app ?

Edit: ok, managed to do everything and AA is working... and, I LOVE A GUY THAT MADE THIS, like, this is just huge... There is some bugs but once navigation is working everything works...

So, here I'm gonna list some bugs I've seen for now.

1. It's a little tricky to connect everything, sometimes it crashes 5x in a row and sometimes it just connect insantly.
2. Google Maps are not really accurate, its lagging behind (idk if it matters, but I've set the app to 30 fps) and its like turning into the street even I'm going forward. Waze works perfectly.
3. When I'm playing YT Music and navigation tells me to turn left/right, I can hear music like lag a bit, once navigation finishes talking its back to normal.

It's somewhere in this thread, but here it is:

Enter: it.smg.hu as process and package name. Then select NAVI. Video Out: OFF, SoundOut: ON, LastMode: ON.

In my case, even setting the 30fps option the UI is still laggy :(

    MaKi83, thanks for the brilliant work you are doing making this AA for the Honda Radios. I am running your latest I believe (14th Apr 22).​


    My comments are similar to others so I won't repeat too much.
    - Connecting requires as stated the double acceptance and can have an issue if it fails. I've found closing all on TM and starting again with the phone plugged in first fixes the issue.
    - Some level of lag when moving up and down the screen etc which i expect is hardware and android version but wanted to state just the same.
    - I do have a mic, FK2. Is there anyway in which you're able to enable mic pickup for calls as usually I have hands free via the Honda connect but lose it with the AA.

    Info: FK2 Radio VRC6

    Again thanks for the work man, you're doing us all a massive solid!

    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.
