Hello everyone, I had the misfortune of messing up my APIM when upgrading my Sync3 to ver3.4 in my F-150. Ya see my screen is a 4" and after I installed the software I now have a cropped screen which belongs to an 8" screen. I have lost all control. I have read
" * Create a new USB with your current version as source and target, so an autoinstall UBS is created. ONLY SELECT THE APPS PACKAGE.
Manually download and copy NU5T-14G381-BA into the SyncMyRide folder (do not uncompress it)
Edit the autoinstall.lst file on the created USB changing the file references to the one you manually downloaded.
Insert the USB into the car and wait."
But here’s the thing, I can get to edit the file but there are 2 lines to possibly edit.
1.Item1 = REFORMAT TOOL - 1u5t-14g386-cb.tar.gz
Open1 = SyncMyRide\1u5t-14g386-cb.tar.gz
Not quite sure what needs to be edited.
Sounds like if you’re seeing a reformat line that you created the USB incorrectly. autoinstall mode, as requested, should not have a reformat option if configured per the instructions. I’d go back, reread the instructions, and start over.
Otherwise, post the autoinstall.lst file as requested and we can confirm that for sure.
Can’t tell, screen is black. What caused this problem was upgrading the original ver to Sync3 ver 4.23088downgrade by using Syn3 updater? If so do I do an “option” setting? Include “apps”, Gem" and nav?
ALSO, the screen is black. Will the usb stick be recognized?
I have a black screen now because you told me to " So you need to downgrade to version 3.3, then reformat and install 3.4 for 4" models". After I did that I got only the rear cam in zoom mode and a black screen when not in reverse.
It clearly states if your car looks like the “left side” but yet you had a 4" model so it wouldn’t have looked like that.
As you have a black screen now for reasons unknown i don’t know how to fix it, if you had a oversized screen then it just needs a update to the 4" version, but at this point i have no idea as you aren’t telling the truth about how you got the black screen.
Follow the steps posted by F150Chief in this topic, but again as you have a black screen i have no idea if it will work or not, i suspect the black screen might be because it’s in reformat mode, in which case you will need a 8" screen to fix the issue afaik.
