I've installed FCC Launcher, but I can't set it as default. If I choose "set as default launcher" in FCC settings, the unit goes straight to the standard laucher, and now I can't even change between the different default launchers (whatever I choose in factory settings reverts back to the last one I used before installing FCC). Is there a trick that will let me set FCC as default?

Hello,

I bought the head unit Mekede M500S 4+64 and after an short test it looks fine.

Her at the forum I read about sofware update and asked the Mekede support to send me the leatest software.
The don't recommend to do an update becaus it can cause a system damage.

My MC version is 2021.04.27 17:38:00 YIN 53 L6315 G23P48F V:1.0
System Info APP1280x720 2021-09-18
Build number: QP1A.190711.020

What do you think about?

Cheers
Andreas

Hi.
I just receved my medeke 7862 6g/128gb.
I got everything working but I couldn't get the reverse camera to show.
I have kia 2012 premium package with 6v factory camera.
I already located the reverse wire from original stereo harness and step it down to 6v and feed it to camera power cables. I also connected Video cables from the camera to CAM VIN in the new display.
When I put the reverse I get black screen only. I tried to look for camera setting but there is none.
Any ideas please?.

I don't know how the reverse is triggered in the display I didn't connect any reverse trigger.
I also noticed a wire marked with IR what is exactly for?

your MCU version is the latest. And, yes, it is highly recommended to NOT try and update MCU software unless you know very well what you are doing, this can easily brick your HU.
You can, however, update system and apps. The latest notable addition is wireless Android Auto which you may or may not have, the change did appear in September.
Don't expect much from the seller, chances are that, even if they send a software update, it will be older than what you currently have.
The latest system version available is 2021-12-07_System_1638860547. You can get this version as well as software updates and customizations from this thread on 4pda.
For customized launchers, check here (paid software)

@ m00n61
Thanks, I found the software, downloaded and installed it.
It was a bit diffcult to register but with googels help it works.

Now I trie to found out what the difference between the normal and mod version is.

Just some caution if thinking about using the UDT system mod app - UDT system introduces sound bugs, such as intermittent radio and system no sound, low sound volume at turn on - which all of a sudden goes loud after a random period of time.

Do have all mod systems this kind of bug?
But I can go back to stock systeme if I am not happy?

In the past I flashed a lot of smart phones, satelite receivers, tabletzs ect., but in the last 2-3 years lost a bit the connection.

hi, I bought a Mekede M700S 8G 128GB from Mekede Official on Alibaba. Where can I find updates? And possibly where can I find Root or Mods? Thank you all

Search this thread. It prevents others from constanty having to repeat things because users don't search.
I have already read the thread and I know you can ask the seller, but I have also read that often the seller is not trustworthy and sends old updates. i also read about searching on 4PDA and searched but couldn't find anything on M700S

Mekede used number schemes for their sc9853i units, but I see that on Alibaba they still use number schemes for their uis7862 units. They don't do that on aliexpress.The Mekede 700S is a FYT uis7862 (ums512) unit and exactly the same as their other uis7862 units apart from the cheapest version (the 300 or 400?) which has lower quality components, but it's also compatible.
So the links to 4pda higher in this thread containing (universal) root methods, modded firmware, modded apps and launchers, etc. can be used on your device.
Of course: make backups and be careful and always check your reseller id (Mekede is most probably 116, but in unlikely cases can also be 1)

thank you. I'll first look for a way to backup then. there will be this possibility in the settings I think.

Don't use the google translated post when you reply. First set it back to Eng;lish. This is pretty annoying. This is an English forum and of course you are free to use Google translate to translate posts, but do a little effort for all those users that try to help you, instead of a lazy reply.

Do you mean FYT 7862UIS / Type 116, there is no Mekede

Anyone else thought about taking the lead/ownership of creating a thread.
Once I have my FYT uis7862 (Mekede, reseller id 116) early January, I am willing to setup such a thread.
I can even do it right now, but at this moment I have nothing to share.

I've run into an issue where all my audio is fine, except when calling. When I'm making a phone call the sound comes from the rear of the car in stead of the usual front.

Can I somehow fix this? Can barely understand the people im talking to when driving.

    Looks like the fan power.
    To tell the truth, that is what i supposed and connected it to the only fitting connector on when of the wire harnesses coming out of the device, BUT my fan never turns on, sooooo maybe im wrong.
    As well as connecting the fan to the harness you also have to switch it on in the UI. In Settings go to Device/Sound/Amp OnOff set to On to have the fan on. Looks like there isn't proper integration for the fan so they just use the switchable amp power output to drive the fan.

    Very clear, many thanks.
    Only one more question, navifly models seems doen't have cooling fan in the back. Is it suggested to have it or not?
    It is definitely suggested especially if you live in (sub-)tropical areas. The fan is really quite and keeps the temperature about 20 degrees lower (in my case).

    And with regard to "UI looks different": I just created a modded firmware based on the latest Mekede in combination with the latest core/kernel I could find, that contains all 11 launchers that are available for the several FYTs around. I currently use Nova Launcher. My current Mekede firmware (build date 18 September 2021) contains 3 launchers: 2 of them look very nice, but that is only eye candy. Real functionality is not so great. I will simply test all 11 and might get back to Nova again. I will also test if my modded firmware is "sharable". I know simply how to overcome issues, so I want to test first.

    I also use something else than the "twipe_all" or "twipe_data", that removes everything (all) or all data including your 3rd party installed apps including their settings. And only because FYT still doesn't have a good update protocol for their own apps after 6+ years.
    My "post upgrade" action is only removing all FYT related data/cache/profiles.
    But first test if that really works ;)

    I finally received my Mekede uis7862 unit for my Octavia 2015, but it doesn't fit correctly. It needs to be pushed in and "click" tight. That is the system VW/Skoda/Seat/Audi use after 2013. That doesn't work and therefore it can easily fall out of the dashboard.
    I did a test drive this afternoon and as such the unit functions fine, but the fact that it is completely loose and can fall out of the dash is an extreme annoyance after having waited so long.

    EDIT: And the 5GHz WiFi reception is a big deception. I have to park my car almost inside my nearest WiFi Mesh AP, while I have a perfect MESH WiFi network.

    even if in the description it says QLED ... talking to Mekede and Navifly sellers they tell me it is no longer Qled now, only IPS

    Update: in Alibaba chat operators Mekede and Navifly say that the "7862" model declared as Qled is actually no longer Qled but only IPS ... while the M600S or M700S models declared as IPS can actually become QLED with the addition of $ 5
    I doubt there ever have been any true QLED units.
