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. [...]
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?
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.
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.
Simply put, I'm using the latest version of AIO and AA Tweak on my Serial patched fw 59.00.504 NA N and I can't get any audio to come through. I can only hear audio come through when Google Assistant is active. I've tried this in both Wireless and Wired mode. My Bluetooth being on/off doesn't...
I was wondering if it would be possible to swap the stock radio from the 2014 iSport with a factory infotainment screen from a higher trim level. I found a good source for the screen, CMU, and control knob at a local junkyard. Haven't been able to find any answers to this question anywhere else...

My daughter graduated college and is looking at a Mazda3, probably used 2014-2018. The Infotainment system is impressive, but if it breaks, it looks expensive. I am very much a minimalist on cars - I drive a 99 4runner and a 89 Volvo 240=ultra reliable and no payments. Aftermarket...
