RCD330+ Firmware Upgrade to version 5314
« on: January 09, 2018, 04:42:56 pm »
This is how to upgrade the firmware on the 187B revision of the RCD330+.


This will replace Baidu Carlife with Android Auto.


Version 5314 Upgrade:
  • Download the firmware (version 5314) and save the .tar file to the root of a USB flash drive
  • Plug into the head unit, turn on, and hold down the Setup button until the service menu is showing
  • Go into the Software Update option
  • Select the software update and follow the on screen instructions to install
  • The unit will reboot and may request an anti-theft code - enter 0000 to unlock.


When installing version 5314, if you receive the variant conflict error then:
  • Download the firmware (version 5515) and save the .tar file to the root of a USB flash drive
  • Plug into the head unit, turn on, and hold down the Setup button until the service menu is showing
  • Go into the Software Update option
  • Select the software update and follow the on screen instructions to install
  • The unit will reboot and may request an anti-theft code - enter 0000 to unlock
  • Now follow the instructions above to install firmware version 5314.

My crngiar RCD330+ 6RD035187B HW: 534 came with firmware 5515 and appears to work fine so far.

Just FYI.

Assuming you're using iOS, does your Siri work correctly? On mine I can't get the voice to come through regardless of what I do.  :-\
