  2. Stuck on boot. Did I brick my unit?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I don't have the info with me at the moment, but I seem to remember my FW version is 55.00.650. I loaded some tweaks and all went well. After a couple of days I realized I really didn't like several of them (but loved some of the others) and I didn't like that it slowed things down a bit. So...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I've got an early 2016 3 in the UK. I really want the infotainment screen to boot to the music screen everytime I start up the car, at the moment it only does this about 10% of the time. It's just a bit of a niggle that I keep having to press the music button when I start up. I don't want...

    So I am replacing the clutch in my 2012 3i Skyactive. Of course, I ripped the Lower Ball joint boot while separating the control arm from the steering knuckle. All the basic auto stores - PepBoys, AutoZone, etc. - will be happy to sell me a control arm, which I hope is overkill. I can't...

    Hi all, Not sure if anyone has done this but I was curious if there was a way to enable the failsafe boot when you are booted into the main filesystem (root). I've seen the write-up on how to do it "physically", see here: forcing invocation of Mazda Connect failsafe mode. I figured this could...
  20. Mazda CMU tear down and boot loop fix

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I don't know if this has been posted here before but I found it an interesting read. This guy (2x4Logic) posted several write-ups of his tear down and it includes how he was ultimately able to fix a bricked CMU (in boot loop). The boot loop fix is pretty intense and probably not for most...
