Current sat at 3.4 21194 and the Ford web site says update available which I assume is 3.4 22110.
Would it be best to use the Ford installer or the cyan labs app? Does the app format and reinstall for this uplift? I believe at 21194 the installer would have to downgrade to reformat ? But I’m not sure why it would need to unless there are some benefits ?
Would the app produce an interrogator file for upload to Ford automatically?
Don’t worry, but this is far from being a generic question.
Since your profile is now complete, DO NOT REFORMAT YOUR UNIT since it’s a MY20 model, you will brick it otherwise.
That being said, yes, the provided update by Ford is for 5U5T-14G381-EZ, which is 3.4.22110. Everything you showed has nothing to do with maps, it will update the other packages via autoinstall, which is fine.
Since 3.4.22110 is the latest known build and Ford has provided it to you “legitimately”, I would go with Ford’s update this time.
The Ford updater has offered two updates for my two cars. I was expecting the file to be identical as both APIM’s are identical as far as version number, grace notes that I can see from the about page.
I only downloaded one file from Ford and was going to apply to both cars. In a moment of boredom I downloaded the fiesta file from Ford and noted it was slightly different size to the focus file.
Looking at the two update packages different files exist in each on a couple of occasions. The suggestion was ti run the integrator and see what was installed on the APIM and compare the files in the Ford update package.
That’s were I got a little lost as some files appear identical to the ones installed and others exist I think that are not installed now. I have only interrogated the fiesta as the focus isn’t here and they may help me I guess.
I was asking what I should be looking for when comparing the Ford update file to the installed interrogator file? Or if someone could compare the fiesta installed list with the two update packages and tell me which is which.
Why does this matter, simply install the Ford file for the correct car ? I replaced the APIM in the fiesta and can’t remember how I updated it as I assumed the files were the same until now. It’s possible I used the focus Ford file to go from 3.2 to 3.4 but it’s a while ago and was hoping understanding what each package contains may help?
i updated my Fiesta APIM from the ford web site using the donor VIN that the APIM came from. The interrogate file to upload to Ford to confirm the update obviously has my cars original VIN. I used a XML editor to replace the VIN in the file to the donor vin and renamed the file name in the same way. The Ford site refuses to acknowledge the file for some reason.
the file name is made up of Sync_xxxxxxxx_VIN.xml where the x’s are entitled serial number (not sure of what).
i can only assume the xxxx’s are incorrect in some way to what its expecting or the xml editor is screwing the file in some way.
