    Thread: RNS-510 Video In Motion via firmware change 5 min job and free.

      I don't take credit for this at all I just know it worked for me. Most of the info I got was from Robpol86's post on tdiclub.com so credit goes to him. There are bunch of discussions about the subject going on now on a couple of forums.

      Obligatory warning: As with any electronics when you make firmware changes there is a chance of bricking your unit. If you don't accept that risk then stop reading now. Also playing DVDs while driving is dangerous and intended for passengers only. Just like texting/talking DON'T DO IT.

      1. Download poweriso http://download.cnet.com/PowerISO/30...ml?tag=mncol;1 or any other CD/DVD image file processing tool. I used poweriso.

      2. Download the Video In Motion file here. http://www.robpol86.com/index.php/Fi...IM_Berto89.zip There are 2 files in the zip.

      VIM_berto.iso is the video in motion file.
      RECODE_berto.iso is the file if you want to revert changes.


      3. Open the file and burn a copy of the VIM file to a cd-r using poweriso.

      4. Start the car eject any cd/dvd in the unit.
      Press and hold Eject, Day/Night and Guide.
      While holding buttons your screen will go black insert burned CD-R.
      When it prompts you OK/Cancel on a white screen, hit OK.
      It will reboot a few more times.
      The head unit should auto-reboot when you remove the CD.


      This worked for me on a CDN Spec RNS-510

      Went through the thread and it seems like this will probably not work for me. I have the FW version of the RNS-510 that is 1000 and H06...

      Brilliant! I can't wait to try this out. Should make adding a camera slightly easier.

      saw this on tdiclub a couple of days ago and worked flawless. literally took 5 mins from the moment I saw the thread to having video in motion. so glad I didnt have to spend money on an adapter to get this to work.

      Someone needs to take a video of the video and post on the internets!

      Burning a disk, will make video

      No blank CD's... Nothing like wasting an 8.5GB DVD-DL on a 0.000190735GB image

      EDIT:

      Just an FYI for you guys with a similar config to mine; this does not work

      EDIT:

      Looks like all they did was flip a few bits in a hex editor, should not be hard at all to apply to HW08/1040 as this is FW dependent, not HW dependent.

      EDIT:

      It works!

      Please note I'm not an idiot, I was paying attention to the Road/Gas pedal and not this silly video

      Nope! Burned the disc, held the buttons, inserted the disc, and let it do its thing. Done, done, and done!

      My clock was set to 24 hour, and I didn't have any errors.

      is there any reason not to do this? has anyone actually killed their h/u?

      Right! Listened to it with my eyes.

      No, I don't think anyone has confirmed any bricked HUs yet. Mine actually had a little weird hiccup. I did it and was leaving to get my coils adjusted to a town 45min away... so when I put my GPS on, it was all out of whack. It had my direction of driving wrong and even had me on the wrong streets. I had to reboot it twice to get it to put me in the right place. I don't know if it really only got fixed because it picked up more satellites or resetting it, but it's fine now.
