Change FEC code to get infinite map updates

Hi guys,

My '5 free map updates' and 3 year Connect services expired (07-2017 A3 E-Tron).
I have 2019/2020 maps installed and want 2021 map, but not absurd for the price the dealer asks for it.

I read that if you change the correct FEC code to a different value you are letting the system think you still have the rights to update (for example with 0x4a lets the system think you have the right to update until the year 2030!)

If done, you can download the MIB2 files from Volkswagen (official website) for free (VW MIB1/2 files are lifetime free) and install them.

Who knows how to do this correctly (with Telnet). Maybe a good step-by-step manual?

Your help is much appreciated

Hacking the hex may create a checksum error given its a signature/key to allow updates from what I know & it may create much more issues, be very careful as its an expensive bit of kit.
