I don't take credit for this at all I just know it worked for me. Most of the info I got was from Robpol86's post on tdiclub.com so credit goes to him. There are bunch of discussions about the subject going on now on a couple of forums.

Obligatory warning: As with any electronics when you make firmware changes there is a chance of bricking your unit. If you don't accept that risk then stop reading now. Also playing DVDs while driving is dangerous and intended for passengers only. Just like texting/talking DON'T DO IT.

1. Download poweriso http://download.cnet.com/PowerISO/3000-2646_4-10439118.html?tag=mncol;1 or any other CD/DVD image file processing tool. I used poweriso.

2. Download the Video In Motion file here. http://www.robpol86.com/index.php/Fi...IM_Berto89.zip There are 2 files in the zip.

VIM_berto.iso is the video in motion file.
RECODE_berto.iso is the file if you want to revert changes.


3. Open the file and burn a copy of the VIM file to a cd-r using poweriso.

4. Start the car eject any cd/dvd in the unit.
Press and hold Eject, Day/Night and Guide.
While holding buttons your screen will go black insert burned CD-R.
When it prompts you OK/Cancel on a white screen, hit OK.
It will reboot a few more times.
The head unit should auto-reboot when you remove the CD.


This worked for me on a CDN Spec RNS-510

Went through the thread and it seems like this will probably not work for me. :eek: I have the FW version of the RNS-510 that is 1000 and H06... :(

Brilliant! I can't wait to try this out. Should make adding a camera slightly easier.

saw this on tdiclub a couple of days ago and worked flawless. literally took 5 mins from the moment I saw the thread to having video in motion. so glad I didnt have to spend money on an adapter to get this to work. :thumbup:

Burning a disk, will make video :)

No blank CD's... Nothing like wasting an 8.5GB DVD-DL on a 0.000190735GB image :facepalm:

EDIT:

English fail.

Just an FYI for you guys with a similar config to mine; this does not work :(

EDIT:

Looks like all they did was flip a few bits in a hex editor, should not be hard at all to apply to HW08/1040 as this is FW dependent, not HW dependent.

EDIT:

It works!

Please note I'm not an idiot, I was paying attention to the Road/Gas pedal and not this silly video :laugh:
