I think that touching the binary or the Android structure is a very bad idea, I now think I know the limits of the PX6; I would discover the S625 in a short time, but I will only set up the SU file and the ROOT rights will be assigned via PORTABLE PC / ADB / UNIT

Here is the method to log some data and do whatever you want with them:

Tasker event -> Logcat (Needs root)

Filter:

Code:
sendStatus Msg: {"jsonArg":"{\"acData
Then you will get this line every ~1 second while driving and everytime a door opens:

Code:
sendStatus Msg: {"jsonArg":"{\"acData\":{\"AC_Switch\":false,\"autoSwitch\":false,\"backMistSwitch\":false,\"frontMistSwitch\":false,\"isOpen\":false,\"leftTmp\":0.0,\"loop\":0,\"mode\":0,\"rightTmp\":0.0,\"speed\":0.0,\"sync\":false},\"benzData\":{\"airBagSystem\":false,\"airMaticStatus\":0,\"auxiliaryRadar\":false,\"highChassisSwitch\":false,\"key3\":0,\"light1\":0,\"light2\":0,\"pressButton\":0},\"carData\":{\"airTemperature\":11.5,\"averSpeed\":0.0,\"carDoor\":0,\"distanceUnitType\":0,\"engineTurnS\":1315,\"handbrake\":false,\"mileage\":214,\"oilSum\":23,\"oilUnitType\":1,\"oilWear\":0.0,\"safetyBelt\":true,\"speed\":78,\"temperatureUnitType\":0},\"mcuVerison\":\"615054dALS-NBT-GTH-190330-B18\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\\u0000\",\"systemMode\":1}","type":5}
You can split it in Tasker. For us the entries in carData are useful

airTemperature - is the temperature outside

averSpeed - doesnt seem to change

carDoor - equals a number =
4 is trunk
8 is engine hood
16 is front left door
32 is front right door
64 is back left door
128 is back right door
If for example 2 doors are open at the same time the number adds for example
front left door (16) and back left door (64) the number is then 16+64=80

distanceUnitType - doesnt seem to change

engineTurnS - is the actual rpm

handbrake - is true or false regarding your handbrake status

mileage - is the left mileage in km what you can drive with your gas

oilSum - is the gas left in your tank in Liters

oilUnitType - i havent found out what this is. Mine keeps at 1

oilWear - i havent found out what this is. Mine keeps at 0.0

safetyBelt - is true or false regarding your safetyBelt status
seems like it only affects driverside

speed - is your actual driving speed in km/h

temperatureUnitType - i havent found out what this is.


Then you can process these values to display them in a widget or anywhere else.

I've saved images for the door value. Each value have its image with displaying what door is open

You can get the images here:

I made my launcher look like this:

[QUOTE=F20_M135i;25962250]Hello

it is indeed very curious as a defect, I can not find an explanation here. Try downloading a FIX GPS application from the google Play store and see how your unit reacted (that was the goal of my first message) Maybe you should update your unit, you will find in this thread what to do.

The gps test app used in the video, it have an option "gps fix" but it doesn t help, like you see în the video after pressing fix option, i tried to enter again in sygic and no signal image appear.

I tried to find an update for my mcu but i can t find, mine is 012042bJLY-NBT-HW7190628[B1290_170325]

Exclamation

IMPORTANT INFORMATION /!\

After dismantling my PX6 RK3399 unit I see that I no longer have any control over the brightness of my original Idirve, I am not talking about the counters, which react to them, but rather the original screen which does not respond more to the settings or lights on.

I need to code the car I think, I'm going to get started tonight with BimmerCode.

I think you should know that.





NB : I'm used to coding on vehicles, I'll tell you what it is here.

doesnt affect when you turn it up or down?

i found the limit editing the Kswcarlauncher.apk or KSWCarlauncher.apk ... When i put the modified apk on system app folder the system is crashed and i reboot in bootloader....

I have order a new unit in Spain to XTRONS... Snapdragon 625 64+4 android 9.0 470€.

yes the electronic module "FEM 01" was affected by the brightness adjustment of the android unit (it was faulty with a value on #FF instead of being in #yes or #no)

It is a good choice, the Xtrons are very famous.
For the unit crash: do not touch the launcher!
Setting up a modified and poorly signed / compliant .apk file can have serious consequences, this is only my opinion.

Hello, for the first time post.

I always refer to this forum.
I was wondering whether to post this.
But, I will post it because you seem to be always struggling to get MCU and firmware.
I discovered this site by accident.
So I don't know when it will disappear, but it's like a developer archive.
(It seems that you can download without an account.)

https://mega.nz/#F!kbYFBS5C!gE-QFJoUp__YMrh0SPxiJA

I thank the archive maintainer.

davide18 Very bad news, your unit is in FASTBOOT mode, i.e. it is waiting to receive either a download via computer / or physical manipulation (impossible on our unit) It seems that there is no possibility at this stage (see page before and my warning on this mode).


Tried the gps fix, same problem, where can i find an update for rom or for muc, because i google it, and nothing.. And from github they not working when i push update.. It s say "Waiting" and after 15mins i close it..

For those of us that brought the PX6 720 units from Carnavi @Aliexpress. Maybe we should bombard them with requests ONLY on the Aliexpress.com chat line for a release of the latest MCU and Firmware. And when they dont respond or cooperate we report them to Aliexpress.com for not following through on 1 year customer support..At least you'll have a record of trying to reach them.

I'm on MCU Version:: 61504b3-ALS-NBT-HWL-191017[1920

I have to do the music app trick to hear Waze direction and alert. Which I'm hearing they fixed.

I have minuscule iDrive controller support on Android side which I heard it's now universal. And a couple other things.

It's not fair to hear you shelled out 700 bucks and you cant get a basic MCU update. Not like I want an Android 10 update.

You can download the boot animation package I'm using here (available 7 days, feel free to upload to a permanent location); the BMW logo is displayed first (splash.img), then the BMW M car animation is run. To install, unpack the zip file to a USB stick root, OEM folder will be created automatically (overwritten if exist), then just insert the USB stick to the unit and wait a few moments for a confirming message that boot animation has changed.

By the way, I tried to speed up the animation by deleting half of the pictures. It runs twice as fast then, but the total boot time is not affected anyway. My boot time is 24-28 seconds, average 26 seconds.
Do you mind sharing your bootanimation again?
