How to user 64GB SD card [Link on Mega]

Cheers :wink2:

In order new 2021 map to fit in 32GB SD do not copy the following folders
pkgdb/LIT
pkgdb/LIT2
pkgdb/LIT3

Hi,
If You want to copy the files for 3GP, you need to delete the following folders to fit to the 32GB SD card (Only LIT1-3 is not enough!).
CTY
LIT
LIT2
LIT3
Hope it helps, for me it worked!
You might need GEM (Green engineering menu) activated and use User Defined Mode and manually select all that is under AUDI_MMI3G_ECE if it's not selected.

Note: For update of 3GHigh remove the LIT3GP folders instead.


Warning - FW update K0900 is removing the "Emergency Update" option from the "Green Menu". There is a way that this can be fixed.

• Emergency menu activation on K0900 firmware. [ Only for A5OC ]
• To enable the Green Menu you could use VCDS, VAS or the following script [ Green menu activation ]
• 03623 [ 03623 Remove ]
1. Unzip it on the SD card.
2. Put the sd card in the MMI.
3. When prompted press the center knob.
4. After the script is done you will see confirmation screen.
5. Remove the SD card and reboot MMI

Do not use MAC to unpack and/or copy the files to the SD card.

The problem:
I've tried to update my firmware (MMI 3G+) to K0767 and got the following error:

GEMMI_nav:0 error code 141
I could only access "Retry" choice (but update kept blocking at 5% with the same error) or "Back" button that was useless
Unable to do anything else, even the Reset procedure didn't work!

Root cause:
This is a file corruption error, the MMI didn't like what it found on the SD card.
Because I'm a stupid software engineer who thinks he knows best, I didn't trust the forums and copied the files from my mac onto the SD card (using command line to clean-up the .Trashes/ and alike folders)
So this is the lesson: DO NOT COPY FROM A MAC
Sub-lesson: better learn from other's mistakes than redo the experience...

Solution:
As stated previously, even a MMI reset procedure didn't allow me to get out of the error.
So I went to my neighbour's Windows PC, reformatted the SD card and extracted the RAR archive onto it.
Back to the car, update went fine and completed successfully after 30 minutes

Hope this experience will help some fellow here...
LESSONS LEARNED - NEVER USE MAC OS (or Unix, Linux based OS) for unpack and copy map or firmware data into SD card. Also always format SD card in Windows OS. USE ONLY WINDOWS FOR UNPACK/COPY!!!

I had to upgrade Firmware as well. I could not load map data even they were copied in windows. It means that also Firmware was corrupted.
I found cca 10 000 hidden files on Firmware SD card. Dangerous is that Firmware seemed to be OK all the time but it was not and I could destroy whole MMI
(Imagine that FPGA or EEPROM is burned with some hidden apple .bin file....).
Q&A section
Here are some of the questions raised by the forum members about the update process that I might failed to explain in the manual.

Q. Do i need VCDS to do the update?
A. No, you need VCDS only to clear some errors after the update but the MMI will function correctly even if you don’t clear them out.

Q. I have a Bang & Olufsen sound system not a Bose. Does this also mean that i need to exclude it?
A. Yes, better not to update the DSP system.

Q. Currently no updates for North America?
A. Not for now.

Q. I have mmi 3gp , version p0XXX can i go straight to k0900?
A. Yes.

Q. Have found the activation script and it includes "2380_00040009.fsc". This should be changed according to manual Page 31 to the MAC address specifically to my MMI or should I continue to use the "2380_00040009.fsc" as stated in the manual page 18.
A. Leave the filename as it is now.

Q. The 2380_00040009.fsc file contains a VIN number. Should that be changed to my VIN number?
A. No, do not attempt the edit the fsc file.

Q. Will my VIN be visible and correct in the MMI
A. Yes.

Q. Only thing is that my Google Maps option is greyed out... any hints?
A. Reinstall the GEMMI_nav component from the K0900.

Q. 01043 - Control Module; Incorrect Software Version - How can i solve this ?
A. Restart the MMI and remove the key from ignition then put it back in. The error should change from 01043 - Control Module; Incorrect Software Version to 03276 - Please Check Software Version Management.

Q. What does the new firmware bring in terms of added functionality?
A. Not much, apart from K0770/K0767 fixing the issues with the SIM data connection and Bluetooth usage at the same time.

Q. What are 03276 and 03175, will they affect the MMI in anyway and how can they be avoided?
A. 03276 - Please Check Software Version Management will appear every time when the software is updated w/o VAS connection to the VW/Audi servers.
03175 - Invalid Data Set will appear when updating the map w/o deleting it first. Sometimes this helps to avoid that error.
They will not affect the functionality or the sound characteristics of the MMI.

Q. Is there a way to use used defined mode w/o "Green Menu"?
A. Yes. In file metainfo2.txt in the root folder if you remove the line "MetafileChecksum=XXXXXX" and add
EnableUserDefinedSWDLMode = "true"
skipMetaCRC = "true"
the you will be able to use the user mode w/o the green menu.

Warning - At no stage I take responsibility of your actions or any of my notes that may mislead you. Therefore, and like my all other documents I say “use at your own risk”.

Does this map work on A4 B8 2011 MMI 3G High with firmware "0257_6" (not updated yet)
or is this 2020 map best for now?
You have 3G High system.
Do NOT delete the CTY folder,need that folder.

My HW: MMI 3G+ (HN+_EU_AU3G_K0942_3) Audi q5 (8R) sound b&o

Before i progress with Map update (as usual), could somebody confirm successful instalation of "Map Europe 2021" from 32GB SD card (deleting pkgdb/LIT, LIT2,3,4 and this time additionaly pkgdb/LIT3GP, LIT3GP2,3,4) to MMI 3G+ ?

Maybe @congo, as expert, can you answer on my doubts this time:
1) Why is this time file name of sources 8R0051884HQ and not 8R0060884HQ (DBInfo.txt file has the right identification PartNumber="8R0060884HQ" # mandatory 11 characters)? Wrong source link for HN+ ?

2) Empty 32GB SD has 31,9 G-bytes space, so current Map (with deleted LIT, 2-4) has size 32,2G-bytes (previos Release 8R0 060 884 HF - 6.31.1 20202021 MMI 3G HighPlus Europe 20202021 was just bellow limit). How will be upgrade procedure in the future with more and more Map content? Does somebody has experience with 64G SD card?

3) What is the functionality connected with LITx and LIT3GPx files, which should be deleted?

Thx

About Question 1: For me it is this time strange naming of files on Mega : 8R0051 insted of usual 8R0060 - i was not sure if i have downloaded the right package following instructions on top:
Map & activator:
8R0 060 884 HQ - 6.32.1 2021 MMI 3G High/Plus Europe [Link on Mega (use 7z/7zip to open the files)] Password: 8R0051884HQ

Hello
I have installed FW 942_4, then maps 6.31.1. Then I have downloaded the 6.32.1 maps and wanted to write them. So that I don't get any DTCs I have activated the Green Menu, followed the entire erase process for the maps/format hdd. I have tried to install 6.32.1 and I can only install STANDARD and no custom install, and by standard it has only installed : MapStyles and TMCConfig, AUDI_MMI3G_ECE and NaviPersistence were (standard) selected to "N" and can't change that. Did the update but no joy. Then I erased again database and deleted nav partition, reinstalled 6.31.1, work like a charm, BUT when I inserted card with 6.32.1 now I get NO updates. I can only install standard, no custom, and as standard, all options are preselected with "N" ! What am I doing wrong ?! How can I install 6.32.1 ? Then, on another subject I get these 2 DTCs : 03276 - Checking Software Version Management and 03623 - Release Code Faulty.
Also tried to follow instructions for clearing 03276, by going to system 5F Information Electronics, channel 15 etc but can't write the values I obtained recalculating the count value and storing/saving the new value, but I can't write, this Channel ...
Any ideas ?
Thank you !!

Hello, I can't get which activator should be used for the map activation process - the one that comes with the maps or the one from the activator link? Thank you!

For my 3G+ i used the vlasoff one from the first post, i hadn't noticed when i made the torrent that the one with the new map was different to be honest.

Albert,
Do you have a Mega link for the NAR maps?

...
...
and for anyone looking for the NAR map here's 2019 - 8R0051884GB seems to be the latest one that's been shared:

Code:
magnet:?xt=urn:btih:4B9507AB79E0B5D03621DF15745DBF583CD7283B&dn=8R0%20051%20884%20GB%20-%20MMI%203G%20Plus%20-%20NAR%206.19.1.zip&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.opentrackr.org%3a1337%2fannounce&tr=http%3a%2f%2fatrack.pow7.com%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2fopen.stealth.si%3a80%2fannounce&tr=http%3a%2f%2ftracker.bt-hash.com%3a80%2fannounce

Hi,
I know the topic is about 3GP/3G+, but from the content of the post I assume, that these maps are compatible with 3G High as well, quoting some parts of the post:
Map & activator:
6.32.1 2021 MMI 3G High/Plus Europe [Link on Mega (use 7z/7zip to open the files)] Password: 8R0051884HQ
and
You might need GEM (Green engineering menu) activated and use User Defined Mode and manually select all that is under AUDI_MMI3G_ECE if it's not selected.

Note: For update of 3GHigh remove the LIT3GP folders instead.
I have latest (0257_6) firmware for 3G High and installed these maps. Installation run smoothly, no problems here. However none of the activators, found on this and various other (3G High related) topics works. I tried Vlasoff, Keldo, Darkdll but none of them worked. FSC based, that are run from Engineering menu, execute, but nothing happens after restart, the rest, that should work on any screen, after everything has booted, do nothing, I see no confirmation screen, whatsoever.
I also tried several SD cards - 1GB, 16GB, 64GB, all formatted as FAT32. I still get "Navigation data blocked" kind of message.
As I browse the forum, a lot of people are in similar situation and I failed to find working solution, so I any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
