    SDS HACK questions

    Does SDS hacking still work? Ive read the relevant threads and tried to make a few disks but nothing seems to happen other than "Insert DVD navigation Disk".

    I thought Id give it a try anyway.
    I have the RNS-E and bluetooth all working but thought the SDS hack would be great if I could make the disk for it.
    Ive downloaded "RNS-E_SW0650_STD" as well as "RNS-E_SW0660_SDS" and tried burning these to CDR but neither do anything.
    Do I need to be burning the folder and its content as in "RNS-E_SW0660_SDS" to a CD or its contents itself, being
    SDS
    00.VNS
    A2210141.MOT
    INDEX
    LDM.BIN
    LOADING.KWI
    to a CD outside of a folder containing them?

    I still have a the VCDS and lead for another few days.
    Ive tried enabling forced downloads as well as updates only though VCDS but nothing seems to work at all.
    I just get the insert Navigation DVD message.

    Ive used Nero to burn the CDs as well as finalise along with CD-R 700mb cds.

    Thanks for your help yet again.

    Hi mate,
    I have no idea on how the SDS hack works but my suggestion is more on the files you downloaded.
    Are the files '.iso' files? if so you would want nero to 'burn an image to disk' and then point it in the direction of the .iso file. If you are just trying to burn files and folders then im afraid i am no help to you here, no idea how the RNSE reads those disks.

    tbh not entirely sure that would have a difference if its not already an ISO.
    only reason i was wondering if it was an ISO as the image may have some files packed in to work as a perfect cd and after extraction it could have broken down. i have just read that SDS is also does via wires: What RNS-E Unit to get?
    i think you should ask Nigel (NHN) for some more info on it

    Yeah I understand about needing to re wire the mic through the RNS-E then to the bluetooth module from The RNS-E unit just dont know how to burn the CD, Ive done a few now and nothing. Ive made plenty of other CD, DVDs in the past that have worked no problem, this is the first thing Ive done for the car though and dont seem to be able to do it.

    Hi, thank you again, Ive already read these and a few others, the second link you gave has a link to the site I downloaded the CD info from that I cant seem to burn properly. Ill try to PM NHN to see if he can help, I saw him asking questions about the same topic on an old forum so he seems to be the man in the know yet again...
    Thanks

    Just copy the 660 sds hack files/folders to a iirc dvd & write to the dvd as normal, I tend to not use windows integrated software as it seems to corrupt the writing, so nero dragndrop would suffice, also windows 7 is a pita for these aswell, be an idea to use an xp pc.

    Apologies if I'm hijacking the thread but I have a question relating to SDS!

    I just got my new S3 and it has RNS-E, GSM Phone Prep and MFSW. It appears the mode button and speech button on the MFSW only allow me to use the Phone functionality, to a limited extent (answer phone so far).

    When pressing the mode button I get 'button not in use' in the DIS, I tried issuing speech commands to switch mode (e.g. to radio, navigation etc.) and iirc she just says 'pardon', might be my geordie accent but I'm guessing not

    Does the above likely mean I do not have SDS and simply have phone prep alone therefore would need to do the SDS hack?

    Cheers peoples

    Dont know how relevant this is but software/firmware version on rnse is 650... downloaded the 660 sds files and burned them, is it safe to try and update?

    There the ones Ive been doing only cant use them. It either just doesnt do anything or says the DVD/CD is unreadable or just says Insert Navigation DVD. This may sound odd but if you get a disk to work could Iyou make me one and i can pay you though paypal for postage and the disk?

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I have just done the SDS mod on the mic and now got the mic working (RNS-E MK1 2010 Nav Disc), but in the process I have managed to downgrade the software and knock of my originally hacked unit SDS hack, so now I am back to SW650.

    Shockingly, my MIC still works through the stereo.

    Does anyone have or direct me to the files so that I can burn it onto a disc to put it back on?

    On another note, I have, can get access to, quite a few of these pins (that go into the back of the RNS-e)... probably a couple of thousand lying around... so if anyone needs any let me know.

    Thanks
