its a 4gb 8core with 32gb of storage.

Iam extremely new to this and Im yet to figure out what certain things mean so please be gentle

1. Is there any mods worth doing?
2. Is there any better firmware to flash/use to make this unit 'better'
3. I have changed to nova launcher and it seems to be snappier, any questions here?
4. What can I use to re-program buttons on my steering wheel? What it comes with doesnt seem to work.
5. Its actually android 10, not 11, its spoofed I checked.

The Device manufacturer is SPRD

Any help would be greatful!

Thanks in advance

It's a FYT unit. Any firmware from a FYT reseller can be used be it for uis7862 or uis8581A. The 8581A is simply the "lighter" less poweful brother of the uis7862. There are some minimal tweaks you have to apply and the lsecupdate binary is different. Of course, if you find a real uis8581firmware it might be better.

1. Only if you have problems, go for a mod.
2. If you do not even know the brand/reseller of your unit, how can anyone advice for better firmware? Next to that: 98% of the firmware for FYT units is identical. Only some differences in "theme" for the launcher (but you use Nova anyway). Your app firmware is of December 2021. There is newer available, but that means it will wipe your system. So far I only flashed newer kernels (read the uis7862 Q&A, etc. thread) hoping they patched the kernel with Android bugfixes and security improvments in the newer kernels, and keep the rest as it is (no AllAppUpdate.bin), thereby also keeping all my settings and 3rd party apps. Again: If you don't encounter errors, there is no need for other firmware. Note: do not flash T'eyes firmware. It is not bad but it does contain quite some restricted firmware making your unit perform much worse.
3. I use Nova as well and I am happy with it. No questions here :)
4. Do you have a CAN-bus? if so, they are hard-coded and you can't reprogram them unless you use something like my "FYT HW OneKey" app that lets you reprogram part of the buttons.
5. That's correct. The android level is determined by the SDK. The Android version setting (for easy version status) is nothing more than a property and can just as easily be set (or faked) to 17, 31 or 145, etc..

Wow thanks for the reply mate you're an absolute damn legend

I'm quite ok with how it functions I don't have any said errors or problems. Good to know some of this info really I mean it thanks again.

Mine is faked however I don't really mind or care I didn't think the components would have been able to power this soc!

I don't have any functions for a cheap Chinese thing it does it job with Waze and music. And occasionally YouTube for a podcast.

Yes sir I do have canbus so I'll be looking for that tool asap. I wanted to reprogram a button for Spotify next song. Nothing special!


Is there ever a time where I should be updating the firmware at all? Like sau year down the track? Or do they stop servicing them?

I was hoping there was a hal9k mod for this one too but I lucked out there

In the settings you can reverse next-previous and/or Vol-Up/Vol-Down if your app/system reacts the other way round, like Spotify does for example. You do not need my app for that.

Like said: so far I have only updated the kernel (6513_1.zip) and nothing else. I only use the unit for navigation, radio and music. Note though that those FYTs still contain an error where they erase your Google contacts if you sync them. It seems the latest T'eyes/Joying firmware doesn't do that anymore, which als means that the somewhat slower resellers like Mekede etcetera should follow soon. (but I don't call from my car. Maybe twice a year)

All those mods are for MTCD/E models, not for FYT.
The only FYT mod is made by @gordgelin but only for real T'eyes models (like mentioned :some T'eyes stuff only works if you have a T'eyes id on your unit).
Tyukta at 4pda makes "a best of" mod where he simply takes the latest kernel and combines it with (what he considers) the best apps (themes actually) from other firmwares (the AllAppUpdate.bin) and he himself also does some theming to apps.

Cool well thats pretty straight forward I dont have any issues with it, so Ill be leaving it for now and just using your tool for re-programming buttons.

The infamous google contact deletion happened to me, i managed to restore which is really good, however it was annoying. It would of been really good if the google phone app would of worked with it over BT, but it does require a sim (the unit goes support 4g however i dont use a sim).

Ill be ready over the guides today to see for your tools

Hi Gentlemen,
I bought same FYT few days back, succeeded with installation to old MB w211. However i faced problem with Bluetooth connection. It seems like Bluetooth driver or module in head unit is not working properly. I tried to reset factory settings, but still have issue with Bluetooth connection.
Could you please be so kind and share your advice on that. Maybe firmware update is required, but i don't know where to find it out.
I would really appreciate your assistance. Sorry for my English, i am not native speakers.
Thanks in advance Gentlemen.
