Hi;

So the screen is black and no matter how many times I turn off the vehicle and then back on it just doesn't work. I tried back+nav+mute and after 10 secs I can hear the radio playing but the screen remains black no matter how many times I do that. I was told that I need to SSH into the car thru wifi (my car only displayed bluetooth before the issue) but I'm not sure what to do after I SSH with putty. Now the problem is that I can't get the USB tweak, it's on this forum but the link is broken and I'm not able to get the file Mazda_USB_tweak_enable_wifiap.zip. Can anyone help me get that file and then regain my info system?

Thanks

Update: problem solved! See below.

I must add that this happened after I updated failsafe to 59.xx and restarted vehicle before updating the OS

So again, for the 1043rd or 1044th time, please read below HUGE mistake for any others who are thinking about doing their own firmware updates. Beware, be prepared and read and re-read the instructions 5 times. "Soft Bricked" equals kind of pregnant.

I tried to remove the cmu but failed miserably. I will need to take it to a technician but I'm not sure I'll be able to remove the green board and thinking I would just replace the cmu at this point. I dunno if either of these will work:

My vehicle is 2015 Mazda 3 GS, will either be compatible?

This will be my last mod, this failsafe is anything but failsafe. I just want to get my efing infotainment back.

Update: It's done! I was able to unbrick the CMU by following instructions in the mzd black screen thread! That guy rocks!

The hardest part was removing the trim and then the CMU, and I couldn't do that no matter what. Had to take the car to a garage where they removed them for me for 25 Canadian dollars, a far cry from the 340+ CAD for a new CMU on eBay.

Finally! Lol
