I'd also like to ask one more thing. I installed the "no more beeps" I think it's called but my seat-belt still chimes. What do I have to do to disable it? Thanks!

hello, the tweak "no mor beep" deactivates the "beep" of infotainment, the seat belt beep is not deactivable, fortunately, because it is a security element

I took the first step and installed AIO. [...] Ever since the installation, the entire infotainment system seems really dull witted. Everything is much slower to load as well as to respond to user inputs. Any ideas? I did not change the firmware version or upgraded Gracenote. [...]
I guess that the only way to make the firmware faster is to update it to at least to the latest FW 59 for your region (install ID7/Autorun tweak from AIO before updating).

Hello @Tristan-cx5! I will try this suggestion. I want to understand one thing before I do anything. I thought I read a post where you told someone to install the ID7 first, followed by the firmware update, and only then install the individual tweaks. When I ran the ID7, the tweaks were installed automatically on my flash drive. Is that wrong? Should I redo it?

I did install Gracenote V 7 yesterday and I wanted to ask if I should go ahead with Ver 9 before proceeding. My current firmware version is 55 and my plan was to install the ver 59 fail-safe first and then "re-install" the same (but not fail-safe) version. I can post the full version numbers shortly when I get home.

Correct, that`s what I know (perhaps there are more/other solutions): ID7 first, followed by the firmware update, and then install the individual tweaks.

If it is possible to install ID7 and other tweaks at once, that would be nice. I never tried it - might be possible. But this only makes sense, if you do not update your FW at this session. As far as I know most tweaks are deleted at a FW update. So before planning/doing a FW update, there is no need to install the other tweaks.

I always updated FW first and then updated Gracenote separately, if a newer Gracenote version was available than provided by the FW. Sometimes a FW update also includes a Gracenote update. I would do the FW update first, then check the Gracenote version and then decide if an update is necessary. I do not know, which FW includes which Gracenote-version.

Also, I just downloaded these files again but they are a bit different; perhaps just dates and nothing else. I don't know. But should I move everything in the folder with the newer dates into the flash drive? The new one (below) also includes several files in addition to folders. I know I should probably remove the highlighted zip file but should I move everything else? And "this" is what is defined as ID7? Is that correct? Because the other file I downloaded was the one that launched the AIO tweaks. Thank you!

I think I did things wrong from my own misunderstanding of the word tweaks. Is this highlighted checkbox the only one I should be running first, before upgrading firmware or installing AIO tweaks? I thought that ID7 was a separate program but I'm thinking that is wrong. Also, I downloaded the newer 2.8.5. Should I go with that one instead?

The difference in your files/folders/screenshots is:
  • ID7 from AIO (use up to/including 70.00.100) from Serial Connection (your second screenshot, folders start with 00 and 01)
  • ID7v2 via serial method only - from ID7 Recovery v2 - only recommended for FW 70.00.335 and above. (your first screenshot, folders start with 02 and 44)
These files need to be at the usb stick for doing the ID7 thing. If you want to install tweaks after installing the ID7, you could delete all files from the usb stick before or format it.

Your highlight in AIO screenshot is the way to the ID7/Autorun-Tweak. Click that and then on the top compile to compile the id7 tweak to an usb stick. I would recommend to first do this (ID7) and after doing this, delete all files from the usb stick or take another one and then compile all other tweaks. As you have FW 55 and want to update to FW 59, you are fine with the ID7 from AIO.

* UPDATE *
Thanks @Tristan-cx5!
  1. Removed all tweaks
  2. Installed ID7 only
  3. Installed firmware 59.00.545 fail safe
  4. Reinstalled firmware 59.00.545
  5. Gracenote automatically updated to ver. 8.0
  6. Installed "some" AIO tweaks
Still pending:
  1. Smaller flash drive for music files seems to be helping with slow system response (only 1 day of testing)
  2. Have to determine which version of AA to try next
  3. "May" add other tweaks individually to see if they work without slowing down response
  4. Open to any suggestions!
Hopefully this might help someone out there who has found this whole topic as confusing as I have.

Hello everyone!

I just bought a Mazda 6 2016 GJ. Does the infotainment hack work with this car? The infotainment systems are the same - Mazda 3, Mazda 6, right?

I'm on ver. 56 (forgot the last digits) EU. I installed Mazda AIO Tweaks in Windows and set up everything.
I do have some questions though.

What is with the Autorun and Recovery? Can I make a complete backup of my firmware in case something goes wrong? I read somewhere that there's a fault in some CMUs and the display will go black / reboot and not come back on and there is no fix to that. If that should happen, would restoring to default firmware fix this?
In order to install this - I don't know how to call it - custom firmware, do I just copy the files from the _copy_onto_usb folder onto the root drive of the USB and plug it into the car?

I'm mainly looking for Android Auto, everything else is extra.

I have a fair bit of experience with flashing custom ROMs on Android phones, but nothing car related.

Sorry for being a noob and asking so many questions.

Yes, the infotainment hack (AIO Tweaks from www.mazdatweaks.com) work with this car & FW 56. The infotainment systems are the same for many models.

At your FW you can install AIO Tweaks via USB directly. From FW 59.00.502 onwards, the installation via USB is blocked. Autorun and (ID7) Recovery enable you to do a FW Update as far as up to FW 70.00.100 and still being able to install AIO Tweaks via USB after the FW update. If you do not install the Autorun and (ID7) Recovery, the installation of AIO Tweaks via USB will not be able after a potential future FW update. For AIO Android Auto (AA) 1.13 or the user project "AA True_go 1.14" (see so called own thread for more info) it is recommended to update max. to FW 59.00.502.

No, you can not do a backup of your FW version.
Yes, there is the possibility to brick the CMU. All on your own risk. There are different brick versions that can happen - not for all is an easy solution available.

Your so called "custom firmware" is called "tweaks". You copy the install files for the tweaks to a FAT32 formatted USB Stick and put it in the car. ACC, Igniton or engine on and wait for the pop up in the MZD.

All right, so I could upgrade to 59.00.502 and then be able to install AIO Tweaks via USB w/out also installing ID7 Recovery. Or is it from 59.00.502 included, so I need to install that too?

Hi all,

A few weeks ago I did the necessary to install a few tweaks.
  • No More Disclaimer
  • Reverse Camera Safety Warning
  • Semi-transparent parking sensor graphics
  • Shorter Delay Mod
  • 1 Sec Diag Menu
  • Speedometer
  • AIO Tweaks App

I'm running "70.000.021 EU N" so I went with the serial method. For the first tweak installation I checked "Copy Backup" and "Test Backups" in AIO just in case.

Since then, tweaks are working, but I feel like my whole system is much slower and laggy than before. I didn't install the swap file tweak since I'm not using AIO AndroidAuto. I'm thinking about uninstalling things tweak by tweak to find the culprit. Could it be the autorun scripts running in the background?

In the first place I created the usb to uninstall tweaks, but I've noticed that the file \config_org\v70\systemApp.js.org copied by AIO on my usb is different from the one I backed up during first install. Both file are attached (I added .txt extensions). Should I care?

I'm a bit dubious to restore the system with a file that differs from the original one. Also, I've had official CP/AA installed by dealership. I'm worried that they'd be uninstalled or that they'd not appear in app list anymore if I restore my cmu with the AIO 'generic' systemApp.js.org and not the one from my backup.

Not sure if I've been clear enough, and I might ask a bit much but hey thanks for any help

Hi there, is a newbie here and would like to seek for guidance if AIO work for 56.00.240 4A N version? Is that anyway to backup in case anything happen, it could reload back to the previous? Thanks a lot in advance.

Yes, AIO Tweaks can be installed via USB at your 56.00.240 4A N MZD firmware. Check "copy backup" in the install options in AIO. This should copy backups of the original files, which will be modified by AIO. But there is no such thing as a backup of your whole MZD firmware, that can be created (like you might have it at your PC/Mac).
