I use a Mac and so followed the video tutorial step by step (or so I thought) but I get an error that says ‘Bad Installation File - One or more of the files being installed on your system did not install successfully’. Reformatted Memorex 128GB USB to EXFAT, put autoinstall.lst and reformat.lst in main usb then all 16 tar.gz files in the folder I created ‘SyncMyRide’.
I’ve tried doing this several times I’m obviously just screwing something up. Help!
*I took photos of the error message on console and also screenshots of the USB Drive and how I have everything in there, just don’t know how to upload to this thread or if it’s possible
SYNC Region: NA

Do you have a error message, if so what is it?

Just to manage expectations, let me tell you there’s a chance Car Play won’t work even after changing the USB hub.
As I said before, the “HUB NOT SUPPORTED” message is expected when upgrading on older hardware. And it’s also true that a new HUB is required for Car Play.
We had reports in the past that if an intermediate Sync3 2.2.17xxx version was skipped (even by Ford’s upgrade path) on older vehicles, Car Play would not get activated on Sync3 3.0. From that point, some users got it working after upgrading to 3.4 from 3.0, but some said it didn’t work either.
We hope you are in the first group of users that will get Car Play once the HUB is replaced.
Either way, you need a new HUB to get rid of that message.
