    Maybe some ideas how to do it?
    I have tried to install ECE firmware (0976), but unsuccesfully, even with swdl mode in green menu and even with changed nav region in 5F module. Also I have tried to modify metainfo2 file with recalculating checksums (succesfully) but unfortunatelly I can't recalculate signature.
    I am searching for solution to install ECE maps or maps and firmware (both of them I have), maybe smb has any ideas, because I am really don't know how to try else :(

    Good to see you've made it across from AudiWorld and welcome to the forum. I don't have an answer for you only to follow my advice and PM DJAlix. I hope he can...

    I wished to do similar and contacted Audi UK who raised a technical ticket. The answer I got back was that it was hardware region locked. Either that or they simply weren't willing to help. I'm also assuming that the map updates are digitally signed for the vehicle VIN and that would need Audi to update their back-end systems to allow the change of region. I had been tempted to see if DJAlix was able to help but the cost may prove to be too much considering I can just use Android Auto instead.

    I am actually working on region changes within MIB1 and MIB2 units at the moment, and have nearly cracked it :)

    Maps aren't digitally signed for the VIN. You would not have possibility to download them from my audi but you can do it from any account with mib2 high vehicle of necessery region (ECE q7 4m, a4 b9 for example) - it is 100%.

    Is MIB2 the Navigation Plus system with hard disk maps storage? Also, if you need a guinea pig - happy to oblige!

    That's great to know - I'd just assumed that they were locking downloads to vehicles based on VIN as they charge for updates after 2 or 3 years.

    I wonder then how they lock access to updates once the limit is reached. It has to be linked to the vehicle identification some how..

    Yes, the technology pack MIB2 systems are the only ones I am investigating at the moment. I have a "bench" set up so am good for testing :)

    That would be great if you got it working. I'd be pretty much guaranteed to get this done if you figure it out. I'm OK with using google maps but there are occasions where I haven't had reception so am unable to start navigation. I presume that new UK map updates could be installed by a dealer for a price.

    Seriously, you found a server and you wish to access password protected files?
    Really....

    Eh? not sure I follow you cuke2u.

    For the OPs benefit, I did message DJAlix and it was still work in progress a couple of weeks ago

    Someone posted a link to some hosted "software", which I requested be removed. Whats my reason for having the link removed? 1) file sharing is not allowed here. 2) Protection. Anyone trying to guess the passwords to unknown software with a view to installing it on their £20k+ car is just stupid and needs protecting from themselves!

    This is still a work in progress and not very high on the list at the moment due to BAU demands.

    I see, that makes sense now. Didn't see the removed message (obviously) and I thought cuke2u was posting in the wrong thread.

    Keep me posted if or when you do make progress - looking forward to being able to pay you a visit.

    Thanks DJAlix, I was concerned that 'finding' a server then requesting help with passwords, in the world of IT security is not to be encouraged with assistance. It may well be innocent but I always err on the side of caution with any unknown requests...
