If you are having problem with the system that keeps on rebooting and you're getting a screen message that say "System Star-up In Progress...Please wait", you may want to reset your system and/or you may do the Pioneer Update 3.0.
To reset your system: Press the "Reset" button in the upper left hand corner with a thin object, such as a pen tip or the end of a paper clip. This will restore the microprocessor to its default settings and erase the settings for the AV source and other data.
Pioneer Update 3.0, Here's How: ( Reminder: This is not the official Retail Pioneer 3.0 Update. You can purchase the official 3.0 Update SD Card from Pioneer's website.)
Step 1: Download 3.0 from the torrent. http://itchybot.com/x910bt.zip.torrent
Step 2: Download the install files.http://itchybot.com/...all%20Files.zip
Step 3: Copy the 2 WinCEIMG files to an empty SD card.
Step 4: Turn unit on. When the pioneer logo comes up, press and hold the menu, map, eject and the reset button at the same time. When you hear a pop sound from your speakers, let go of the eject button but continue to hold menu and map buttons. This will bring you to a blue screen where you will have to enter the service combination. Press the volume knob in this sequence and you will see * signs for each push: Up, Up, Down, Menu, Left, Right.
Step 4: Put in your SD card with the WinCEIMG files.
Step 5: Select Update CE
Step 6: Select Update SD Format
Step 7: Wait till it says restart in the bottom center.
Step 8: Remove your SD from the AVIC, put it in your computer.
Step 9: Delete all of the files off the SD card and put the testmode folder, DATA file, and the flash dump from torrent on.
Step 10: Insert the SD card into the AVIC and hit the reset button.
Step 11: Once testmode boots, open explorer and copy the contents of the flash dump to the "My Flash Disk" Drive.
(Should take about 20min even though at first it says like 140min)
Step 12: Copy the Data file from the SD card and replace the one in "My Flash Disk\APL2\iGo" (Soft Bypass)
Step 13: Press and hold restart and eject for 5 seconds.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.
