Hi,
My RNS-E has 260 firmware. This firmware update removes TV mode; however, I heard that the only way to prevent the loss is to take the 0200 sw disc, modify the text in file index.txt to read 0270. If this is true, can someone please explain me how to do this?[-o<

Thanks for your support!

LDM.BIN
05.CMP
DUMY0E.KWI
DUMY1E.KWI

Thanks for your support!

Thta version number means you have an EU unit that has only been partilally converted to US software.

Look at the recent threads on making an EU to US conversion CD.

Glad to see you got it fully converted OK.

Would you like to write and post a "How To"? Recently some new members have found it very difficult (you obviously didn't!) and have asked for a "How To" guide...

Audi Forum - View Single Post - upgrading software/using new map...dependent on?

00.VNS
A2220134.MOT
INDEX.TXT
LDM.BIN
LOADING.KWI

Change index.txt with notepad or wordpad. Just open the file, replace 0200 with 0270, then save.
I spoke to you on another thread yesterday...it seems you are the most knowledgable on European to US RNS-E's. Could you send me a disc witht the updates?: I've tried the firmware updates (0260) and the VAG programming...but like I mentioned bfore...it keeps defaulting to 0. :evil::evil::evil:

Just did the EURO to US RNS-E convert without vag-com on my 8E B6 A4

The HU is 8E0 035 192 T
System SW 0650
Navi SW V2200815
Audio SW A2210141-080807

Take those needed 5 files from 2009 US DVD
Use VIM 1.10 to edit LOADING.KWI, source euro, target us, save
Inorder to use this cd w/o vag-com, edit INDEX.TXT to be "SOFIDX:0660NAVVER:V220101E AUDVER:A2220132"
Burn these files to CD-RW with imageburn, ISO 9660 + Joliet,

Put CD into navi and it start to update, after 2 reboot, the version became
System SW X---
Navi SW V222023F
Audio SW A2220132-110505

Then insert 2009 US DVD and it update again, now it is
System SW 0260
Navi SW V2220317
Audio SW A2220141-080807

And it works great. Thanks for all the great guys and infos here. Hope this helps a bit.
Now, It's time start to learn how to use it.

That's a neat trick to avoid having to use VAG-COM!

Any chance you can do the same with a 2010 Nav disc and send me a copy to update my EU RNS-E? If you are able to do it, I will gladly pay you for the effort. I already own a 2010 Disc w/ RNS-E installed, but I don't have the time or patience update myself. Let me know. Thanks.

You basically take the 5 firmware files from your 0200 sw disc, modify the text in file index.txt to read 0270, then burn those files to a cd, and use that to "update" the firmware on your rns-e. Then, when you insert the 09 nav disc, it won't try the auto-update. let me know if you have any trouble doing it...

Thanks!

If I reload the 0200 SW on the 2010 HW 8P0 034 193 model, technically it should remain the TV mode as well as the Traffic for US usage supported the 2010 device running 2010 DVD? Is it the case here? I'm thinking to try that, do you think it would work?

The 0200 sw talked about here is not the 0200 sw that the 2010 RNS-E is running. The 2010 US RNS-E never had the TV option and here is no software that you can load to fix this.

Thanks for the confirmation on no TV option for US , AudiA4B6US, but I was thinking the VIM or play movie DVD on the 193 unit with 2010 DVD map. Is it possible? Since I'm in the market to get 193 unit with the 2010 DVD map for US usage, what firmware and SW version that I should be pay attention to. I'm learning I know I need 193 unit, but still got confused on like is it the same SOFIDX 0200 = 0200 sw disc ; firmware sw 0260 of DVD 8P0 919 884 AS (2011-0260), etc... even within the 193 unit but showing sw200, sw260 on ebay, very confusion. Any feedback for clarify would be much appreciated.

Even though the sofidx seems to be the same, the software is completely different (think OS X for Intel and iOS for ARM CPUs), you cannot load the pre-2010 software on a post-2010 RNS-E and there is no post-2010 software that support video inputs. There is a single A3 RNS-E, pre-2010 but still having a 193 part number, that's why I don't like using just teh 193 as indicator whether or not a RNS-E is a pre- or post-2010 unit. The media button (if the faceplate hasn't been swapped) and the high res display are better indicators but only if you can take a look at the unit itself.
