I have a problem after upgrading to android 6 because the unit does not automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network but I have to do it every time by hand and when I connect it writes that no Internet access And the Internet still works. and power backup for 10 minutes doesn't work just every time android starts from scratch. can you fix it somehow?

May I ask, What is the memory size of your device? 1G or 2G?

Hi guys. as promised, i decided to make an how to, so you can update your headunits, commonly known as QuadCore R16, to android Marshmallow. First i wanna thank ]

This was tested in two units, one from eincar with fake 5.1 and in another with already two years bought in aliexpress. one said astar y3 cortex a7, other astar d3 cortex a9. both are working perfect with android 6.0

I've upgraded but having problems. Allwinner R16, Had 4.4.2 on it and would get a random unfortunately disc has stopped. I've upgraded to version 6.0.1 Version V7.3.2_20170801.182935_KED1-mod. Mcu version is 5.3.17-1F94-610101-151112 but comes up mcu unknown but then sometimes shows version and then disappears. Raidio presets disappear. and hangs up. I go into extra settings and nothing was in the vehicle list. If I try factory reset it does nothing. I found this MCU file 5.3.17-1-XX-610101-150906 which I think should work, only date is different. Installed it. Checked extra settings and vehicle list is populated now but when I select VW obd rsz, it shows like its updating but never does,
Can't figure out why.. Also after it starts it will flash between background wallpaper and black screen with the icons a few times then finally it will straighten up but I'll still have glitches where if I click a link it may do nothing or it will open then close. I've also tried several other software versions from forum and still no good. Could launcher be the cause?
Hope someone can help me with this.
Thanks

Took more pics and it updated, shows dvd unknown but was able to select vw obd rsz this time. Radio and equalizer work fine but still have an issue with wifi.
Says connected, no internet. Any idea what the f94 and the f81 was for in the mcu?

The "connected, no internet" is solved in another thread. When I'm home from work, I'll put the link here for you.

Yes, in Play Store.
[/QUOT

wifi conection issue is solved. I've downloaded the terminal before but it been to long.
Anybody with Mcu firmware 5.3.17-1-XX-610101-151112 can you pull it from your system the earlier version firmware 5.3.17-1-XX-610101-150906 that I found may be causing me problems.
Thanks for the help Old.Splatterhand!

Sorry, i don't know.


Is there any way you know of to check hardware id's? I've tried about a dozen other mcu files with a different hwd id than where mine shows 1 model id shows blank with all I tried. I haven't found a different file with the harsware id 1other than the one I have. not even sure the radio id is TEF662X could be something else.
Works for a while fine then i'll loose the mcu version and says unknown and have radio problems and sound setting problems.

    Hi guys. as promised, i decided to make an how to, so you can update your headunits, commonly known as QuadCore R16, to android Marshmallow. First i wanna thank @dickjones for all is help in 4pda forum

    Files Needed - Android 6.0 Image and software to update - https://yadi.sk/d/CEZ8Rwe_3KbMbj
    Recovery in Case of first attempt Bootloop - https://yadi.sk/d/1krDlyPP3JXFaD
    Final FW recomended with root included - https://yadi.sk/d/suOSRwtd3KSbw4
    Apk to put the unit in flash state - http://www9.zippyshare.com/v/ujNIf42V/file.html

    Hardware Needed - Male to Male USB. i made mine from two old usb cables. just cut them and join black with black, red with red, white with white and green with green. Isolate so they wont touch each other.

    I advise to this with the unit next to the PC. For this, use a PC power suply, cut two yellows and join them with the red and the yellow from the Unit. Then cut two blacks from the PSU and join them with the black from the Unit. After this, find the green wire of the PSU, cut it and join it with another black from the PSU. this will make that when you turn on the PSU, it will start without an assist from a PC.

    Last before you start, in the ANDROID 6 files you will download there is a video of the process, but you dont need to follow any step till step 10, due to the PCUpdate.apk, that allows you to put your unit in flash state withou the need of dismantling the unit.

    1- Install Phoenix Suit. Also install the Google USB Driver provided with phoenixsuit installation. if it gives an error on the driver instalation, continue with the instalation and download the google driver usb from any site. Copy all the driver files and paste them in the AllWinnerTech Driver folder. Install Phoenix Suit again, and at the driver instalation you'll notice that there is no error anymore.

    2-After instalaltion finished, open phoensuit, press the Ancor Icon, second from the left, then blue box and select the image provided with Android6.rar, named sun8iw5p1_android_d7_uart0

    3-Now in your headunit install PCUpdate.apk and open it. Proceed with flashstate. Unit will turn dark. Its now in flashstate. Now connect your USB Male to Male from your PC to the usb from the unit. If you have two usb cables in the unit, if pc doesnt detect on the first one, change to second cable. Only one will work for flash purposes.

    4-As soon as the pc detects the unit, if some driver begin to install, let it finish, and then, on the PhoenixSuit, press the GREEN BOX in the Ancor Menu. Unit will start to update. Let it finish.

    5-Unit will reboot after finish

    6-The first boot may take a few minutes. If it boots fine, Proceed to step

    7-This part is for units that got in bootlop after phoenixsuit flashing. you will flash the recovery in case of bootloop provided above. USB PEN Fat32, put the file in the root of the usb. This part may differ from unit to unit. On the ones with hardware buttons, the force flash state is turning off the unit, insert usb with the recovery file, press home button and let it pressed, turn on the unit and as soon as it turns on, press once the reset button. let the home button pressed till flash screen appears. let it finish. Again, if it dosent detect the file, repeat the process but in the second usb cable from the unit.

    8-after finish, unit will enter recovery. insert a usb keyboard in the unit to navigate recovery. factory reset and the wipe cache. when its done turn off the headunit and emove usb.

    9-download the Final Firmware provided above and put it on the root of the formated fat32 usb.

    10-insert the usb in usb cable from headunit, force flash the FW again like you did in step 7. Unit will flash the final firmware, takes about 2 minutes to boot.

    VOILA, you are in 6.0

    Im not responsable for broken devices. do this at you own risk.

    This was tested in two units, one from eincar with fake 5.1 and in another with already two years bought in aliexpress. one said astar y3 cortex a7, other astar d3 cortex a9. both are working perfect with android 6.0

    Hi,
    Thank you for this post! I succesfully updated to Android 6 with the Phoenixsuite on Windows 10 x64.

    Just 2 questions after this;
    - My touch panel buttons don't function after the update (volume up/down, power and the back key)
    - How to perform step 9? "Download the Final Firmware provided above and put it on the root of the formated fat32 usb." As I understand, these are the 4 files? I have no idea how to perform this update.

    System before update:
    TW astar_y3-eng 4.4.2 KVT49L 20151024 test-keys

    Thank you very much.

    First
    Menu item Settings-Car settings-Extra settings-Touch area keys. Then like on video
    (video in Russian :( )

    Second
    Download the latest update https://yadi.sk/d/-aplOdJ93QTeWb

    Extract 4 files to the root folder of usb flash drive. Click menu item Settings-Car settings-System update-usb... Wait until the update is complete. Make a Factory reset (menu item Settings-Car settings-Factory reset)

    Good luck...

    I have a problem, te app that put my android in flash state puts it with black screen and horizontal green lines, after that, my unit its connected and just after that the unit reboots and it says windows doesnt recognice it.

    can anyone help me? Thank you!

    It looks like that app doesnt put the radio in flash state

    sounds like you dont have google usb driver instaled properly. you have to download google usb driver manually, take all the files from the driver, copy them to the driver folder of phoenixsuit and reinstall the phoenixsuit
