I do not have a solution, but to get a good/simple view on the folder structure, I would recommend to use the software WinSCP. Perhaps you do not have the "full view" or you use wrong linux commands? I am not a linux guy and for me WinSCP was helpful.
Thanks Tristan, heading back to the car to check it out with WinSCP.

I try, but I seldomly used it.
  1. Evaluate the IP address of the MZD: a) Open a WiFi Hotspot with your smartphone. b) Connect the MZD to it. c) Connect the laptop/notebook to it. c) Check the WiFi Hotspot settings at the smartphone for the MZD IP address.
  2. Open WinSCP at the laptop/notebook and connect via SFTP Port 22 to the IP address of the MZD using user/password: cmu/jci (or user/jci).
  3. On the right side of WinSCP should you see the folder structure of the MZD.
But be aware that some files can not be deleted/overwritten without a special permisson. There are some info about that in this forum, which can explain that better than me. I did these permission changes beforehand via Putty. But I recommend to search for these codes/strings and learn more about them, if you can not do what you want via WinSCP.
Code:
echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/Watchdog\ Disable/value
mount -o rw,remount /
chmod 755 /examplefolder/examplefile
...after replacing a file I did again:
chmod 755 /examplefolder/examplefile
I am not sure, if this is correct, but for me it worked out.

Thanks again.
I must say this truly is frustrating as not even the WinSCP seems to work. I got the IP but when attempting to establish connection, it times out. I attempted to ping the IP from my laptop as well just to see if there is some kind of communication but the ping times out as well.

Searching through the directories via Linux I discovered that the is /bin and /dev on the same location as /mnt.
As the screenshot before indicated I only have up to /mnt/data_persist
Looking further at the commands that we are copying, in simplistic terms we are copying all the information as it is on the flash drive to the CMU (recursive copying) and then making the autorun file executable.

That being said, is it safe to say that these files can be placed in any directory and accomplish the same task to do they need to be in the mnt/data_persist/dev/bin location?
OR
Would creating a new directory and copying these file across work as well?

Even in the screenshot from https://mazdatweaks.com/serial/ , after pasting ls -l /mnt/data_persist/dev/bin which essentially just lists everything in the location, only the files from the flash are in there which means that mnt/data_persist/dev/bin was an empty location.

I am noticing that others are having this issue as well in the forum.
Seeing that the /dev/bin is missing from the mnt/data_persist/ it would be logical to create these directories. However, in logining in as user/jci , that account does not have root access and therefore you cannot modify the structure.
As stated in the instructions, once you execute the scripts you will then be able to login as root with username: cmu pass: jci
If we can get access to the cmu account, then the directories can be created as specified.

So Guys, I was able to get through successfully today. @Trezdog44 gave me some great help and explained some things that cleared up my questions.

1. Yes, the information that we put on the flash drive needs to be at that particular location (/mnt/data_persist/dev/bin) due to the code that is being used to run the mods.

2. As I suspected, the user/jci account did not retain rw access although all the relevant directories were in proper permissions (777). I could not even cd into directories, it would state 'can't cd into ...'

What worked for me was following the instructions of ID7 V2 with the ID7 V1 files.
  • Reinstall 59.00.502 but established the serial connection before doing this.
  • Follow directions of serial connection ID V1 from https://mazdatweaks.com/serial/
NOTE: you do not need to login in the terminal if you are doing this.

  • Copy the firmware update files to flash together with the XX folder
  • Install .502 as normal firmware update
  • After the installation is completed, you will notice that the text stops scrolling on the screen. At this point you have an open connection as root.
  • From here I created the directories /dev/bin, copied the file from the XX folder into it and ran the executable command. (In summary I just ran the scripts as outlined in the Mazda AIO serial connection)
NOTE: You MUST run the scripts and commands at this point.

  • Once this was done, I followed regular process as dictated for after updating firmware. (turn off car, remove flash, lock car and wait 5m away for 3 mins etc)
  • I then put the flash drive in with the AIO tweaks and it installed.
Hope this can help some other users out there.

Hello, I have problems with serial connecting. Mazda 3 2015 2.0 120hp firmware version was 70.00.335 successfully downgraded to 59.00.502 and now I am trying serial connection for installing ID7. I am trying to login with "user" and "jci", but I think it is unsuccessful here is the log: (full log)

What I am doing wrong? I also tried to login with 'cmu' and 'jci', but it is the same.

Hi, I have version 70.00.200 4an, (strange for me), it unlocks it via serial without problems but when installing video player it tells me that I can brick the radio, do you know if it is compatible to accept?

Do the new usb hub work if downgrading from fw70.00.335 to fw59.00502 with aio android auto? Have anyone try it before? Please give your experiences. Thank you.
No. The new hub can only work with the 70.x firmware. Same as the requirement to where you have to install 70.x before installing the new hub. When I did all my upgrade/downgrade tests I would reconnect the old hub before downgrading to < 70.x.

I had a question about android auto tweak. I have been using it since the summer, no problems. Is there a way to change the appearance so it looks like the mazda enabled android auto that comes with the newer cars? Just curios as the clock is more visible where its located on that version.

thanks

You want to change a wallpaper? If yes, then it's possible.

Hi, Did you get through with this?
I believe the issue is that you might be entering the password before the required time. In my experience when you see cmu login: and you enter the account, you will see password: where you will then enter the password.
It is a bit difficult to see these things so what I would suggest is that when you establish the serial connection, wait for some time before you attempt to login. The text slows down when most things are loaded.
Try and advise.

I have a 2015 mazda 3 and had to take it to the dealer due to a recall with the infotainment system. Well turns out they upgraded my FW to V70.00.335. I was reading the instructions and im a little confused. Hoping someone can help me out here.

In this URL: mazdatweaks.com/serial/
under the Serial Console App
on step 3: Plug in flash drive. I am guessing this has to be an empty flash drive?
also at what point between step 3 and step 12:
Remove flash drive, turn off car, insert flash drive that has AIO tweaks installed, turn car on back in ACC mode

Do i need to do what it says on mazdatweaks.com/id7/
Or since I was already updated to that version I don't have to follow the steps on mazdatweaks.com/id7/

Thank you

You already have V70.00.335 installed. It is currently not possible to do any of the tweaks. The first link only works if you are on version >= 59.00.502 and <70.00.335. The ID7v2 is only for when you are upgrading to a version >= 70.00.335

@marcegc31 : If you want to install tweaks via USB again you have to install .335 over your .335 (or install .352). At the end of the update process install ID7v2 files via serial access. So yes, you need to stick to www.mazdatweaks.com/id7 ,as it has to be used for >= 70.00.335. As basic knowledge about how to do the serial access in general you can read www.mazdatweaks.com/serial

www.mazdatweaks.com/id7 states the following: "Copy the “XX” folder onto the USB drive along with the update file." - so .335 or .352 file and XX folder should be on one FAT32 formatted usb stick. After everything is done, you can compile your tweaks via AIO to a FAT32-formatted usb stick and install them. So an empty usb stick never has to be put in the car.

That is actually interesting.. So if a user has V70.00.335+ on their CMU (with no ID7/tweaks), they can perform serial tweak while installing V70.00.335 again, and run the special command to run autorun as described in ID7 Recovery v2 to be able to install tweaks again?
