As the previous users, it’s recommended for you to run the interrogator log in about 2-4 weeks to see how the rwdata partition is doing. The idea behind this is to see if this issue is 22251 specific. Also, 3.4.21256 should be in your plans should this happen again, since it’s been flagged as the most stable version out there.
I don’t remember exactly how much was free after the master resets, it was only a couple of MB. I will definitely run the interrogator a few times over the next couple of weeks to see if it’s slipping away. My system had been doing auto updating, so I am pretty sure I was getting the versions consecutively and no issues until 22251.
Hello and thanks to all for this site and the help.
I do still have issues if I am reading right.
Just recently I have been having issues (like past week or so). I have to do a soft reset every so often due to black screen. I get the hangup like you (@glendonmacburnie ) but cannot do a master reset from the screen.
I have tried doing soft reset and reset the APIM from ForScan a couple times.
Here is my log and, if I understand right, I need the rwdata to be open or am I reading it wrong and it is already clear and I am ok to go with the downgrade and then upgrade with reformat?
To note it has been laggy/slow to load (sync) for the past couple weeks.
I hope I am no rehashing someone else’s post…I just do not want to brick it.
APIM Model: 4U5T-14G371-CJA
APIM Type: Navigation
APIM Size: 32GB
APIM Free Space: 4.3G

Ok, I hope you are not right with the failing APIM.
Just did a forced downgrad with only APP to 3.3 and this works fine. My Navigation is not working at the moment but i belive this is normal. Im creating a Reformat Stick at the moment with 3.4.21265 with everything checked, even the F11 Nav Card.
Hope this will also fix my problems with the resets. I will let you know
The fact that you were able to downgrade without issues, also speaks your issue has nothing to do with the rwdata partition issue described earlier…
Time will tell if there’s something wrong with your APIM, it’s not the first that does not fully populate a log. And that does not necessarily mean the APIM is failing… but, reverting to defaults is an issue…
As you said, I hope I’m wrong and it’s just “a thing”
Mondeo 2015 retrofitted with sync3, I had the same fault with all memory blocks blank after upgrading to 22251.
Every restart of the car prompted me to run setup including phone pairing.
Tried every type of downgrade etc but nothing worked.
Turns out the APIM I bought out of a salvaged Focus ST was in fact a counterfeit APIM.
Replaced APIM with one from a 2020 Fiesta MK8 and after a lot of ABF tweaks is running perfectly…
Hello everyone, something that works. It took me 4 days to look at the blogs. The software 3.4 19101 only the Apps must be loaded on the system! Then the system comes back and picks up the 22251. But the system is not stable, you have to download the 3.4 22200 (the one before the rotten 22251). I did without the voices and without Gracenote which are not corrupted, and there is room. And Miracle! It works, your system is under 22200 and everything works as before.
