It sounds to me like the nano flux driver needs to root the 2.1 seed of the proto-driven modular capacitator without necessarily flashing the RAM state particulator. If you can clear that up, I think we can circumvent the problem with the lybians.

So far I've learned (if this is duplicative, my apologies) that the Entune unit is ARM-based and runs QNX. The latter is an issue for me, as I haven't touched QNX since 2004 or so, and that was still the 4.x release tree, I think. It also looks like there is a 1GB Hynix NAND flash chip in the unit, so there is potentially lots of space to play with.

I haven't actually run the update yet, but if anyone has any more tech info to share, actual hacks (nothing illicit, but improvements) or wants to follow along with what I'm doing (or trying to do), let me know and I'll start a new thread.
i dont know what you just said...but sounds like if you could make this unit half usable from what Toyota is doing with it, im all about that.


yeah i get the same error when trying to tether bluetooth.
on the Entune site it goes through the steps for setting up bluetooth tethering for the iphone, you start by using the USB connection to set it up, then its supposed to reconnect via bluetooth.... but the steps are not possible the way the system works as far as the prompts and such. it says the audio most be off whne hooking up USB, but as soon as I do, my ipod takes over (another small peeve of mine, every time i hook the usb, the frikking ipod takes over), so i cant follow the orders to tether after that.

Maybe my USB port is bunk lol. I have reformatted the stick. Copied the ISO to the thumb drive along wity the text file. I have extracted the contents of the ISO to the thumb drive and tried again like the instructions said. I know it gets power becuse I have charged my phone with it.

Are they neighbors to the vulvalarians? Cause you will never figure out their problems.

I just got the Upgrade pack in the mail today.

It includes a 2 gig USB drive. To update to 2.1.0.

I am going to have to say the whole entune thing still sucks.

Has anyone here that has it been able to make it work flawlessly?

As far as my experience goes so far I would not recommend this to anyone at all.

Sorry guys.

What it means. The head unit, which appears to be a Harmon-Kardon device (they also own JBL, if memory serves) uses a pretty typical processor (ARM, its family is also used in things like the iPad and iPhone) and a Real-Time Operating System called "QNX Neutrino" - it's sort of an oddball Unix-variant (pre-dates Linux by about 10 years).

If you poke around the ISO, for example, you can find the graphics the Entune unit uses for the Nav app (just an example, lots of other stuff there too). Many of the images are crappy .bmp files, so it's probably possible to replace them with custom icons, make new splash screens, etc.

The software to do over-the-air updates (OTA) is also in place, and those will be accomplished via a secure HTTP (https) connection. It doesn't look like the partner sites are up and functional, yet.

What I really need is to take apart an Entune unit and see how you get a console hooked up to it. I'm trying to find out how the operating system is set up, because frankly the Entune system sucks ass. I see no reason why (other than time to devise code) you couldn't turn the Entune unit into a general-purpose in-car computer.

If anyone comes across a cheap one for sale, let me know and I'll put it on the bench and start the dissection. I would guess there is some way to throw it into a diagnostic mode from the touch screen, but I haven't stumbled across it - yet.

Figured out my BT tether problem. You have to enable DUN/PAN on the settings button( next to the connect to Internet button) on the paired device page. Once I did that, entered my entune I'd, it was good to go. Keep in mind that you still need the tethering plan for this.

i sa that screen i thought maybe that swhy i had to do, but i had the same issues i had before update "connection failed". so i went back to disabling that and trying the new way they want you to do it and now it says "unable to connect check entune app is running"

i know you can tether if you use iPhone as a hotspot, but supposedly now with update you can do bluetooth tethering, and even says you can on Entune instructions now, but it dont work ;(

i would go to a dealer but those guys usually dont know anything about Entune

Try un-pairing it completely and then pair it again. Did anyone figure out if there's anything more to the update other than the crApps? How big is the thumb drive storage wise?

the thumb drive form toyota is a 2GB unit....pretty nice one.

it add the crapps, but actually adds some very useful voice commad on top of the ones it already had...so you can actually search bing and look up radio stations etc while driving and such, so far its made entune almost half useful.

i already have a nanny remover so i can operate my navi unit while moving but it is nice using voice commands for search.
