Thanks to Klaus and Brobble I'm proud to announce that the RNS-E VIM unlock tool actually works very well and can be quite useful for many things. If you haven't done so I would recommend to spend some time reading the Nav Hacks topic at http://www.navplus.us/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3056. You should also be familiar with creating an update CD, if not I would recommend to read the software update topic at http://www.navplus.us/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4098&postorder=asc&start=35. Since the tool can easily render your RNS-E useless I have to mention a couple of things before talking about the more interesting part. If you cannot answer all of the following questions with yes, this topic is not for you and you should use one of the many offerings out there to get video in motion. - I know what an RNS-E is. - I have a computer and can create a single session ISO 9660 CD. - I do have a VAG-COM and already changed the software coding and adaptation channels of the RNS-E. - Iâ€™m not afraid to render my RNS-E useless making an expensive repair or replacement necessary. - I do have access to the European 0080 software or the RNS-E DVD 8P0 919 884 B - Iâ€™m familiar with creating an update CD to change the region of the RNS-E or downgrade/upgrade the RNS-E software without a map DVD - I do not plan to sell update CDs that include the VIM hack and I do not plan to make money for unlocking VIM using the RNS-E mod tool - I'm not using a RNS-E with SDS (SDS may get removed when loading the hacked software) Since the software on the RNS-E is copyright as well as the map data, the tool does not include the software. For the same reason it is not possible to host an ISO with the modified files. What should be legal is to provide a software tool that allows you to modify certain files from the navigation DVD resulting in a custom update that unlocks video in motion. As side effect of removing the lock bit and allow coding for video in motion, the software coding and most adaptation channels will change and will need to be reset. All stored navigation destinations, names and radio presets will get lost as well. The process of creating the unlock update CD is the following: - Write down the software coding, all adaption channel values, all navigation destinations, names and other personal data as stored in your RNS-E - Take the five software update files from the European RNS-E DVD 8P0 919 884 B - Start the RNS-E mod tool and read the help text, it contains some important information - Modify loading.kwi using Klaus RNS-E mod tool - Save the changes - Create an update CD - Load the update - Load the current software - Restore the software coding and adaptation channel values as well as navigation destinations, names and presets The RNS-E mod tool and process works and has been confirmed by at least three people independent from each other. Thatâ€™s as much as you get as guarantee that nothing will break. If you are still not scared and brave enough to give it a try, send me an email requesting the RNS-E mod tool that Klaus wrote. To confirm that you know what Iâ€™m talking about, include the file name of the mot file that is part of the Euro 0080 software. By requesting the RNS-E mod tool via email you also confirm that you take full responsibility for what happens with your RNS-E. Thanks again to Klaus and Brobble for figuring out this stuff and making the tool available for free. Have fun, Dirk ********************************* Update: The VIM Hack and the SDS MOd tool can both be found on Klaus' home page at http://naviedit.de/.
