Obdeleven as far as I'm aware just gives you a heads up on the relative firmware releases being used. Added bonus but you dont use it for that.

I would check your navigation FeCs before you do the update to insure you can do 189 in relation to Mapcare. The navigation FeC decode table I did:


Yes the mib2 high is the Seat Navigation Plus it's their name for them. I call it by its generic VAG name.

There are posted firmware files on the thread but I am not an expert on that. I bow to others on that.
Just checked my and the 73 ends with 26 which Shows November 2020. That means that the Version i currently have installed is the latest i can update right?

If it was 27 you could get the latest release in, but this wouĺd suggest you are one quarter out. June 2020 is the one you can update too. 184.


Or you find a retrofitter to adjust the navigation FEC to a bigger number.

As for firmware updates I believe 1409 may be the latest. It is for my mib2 high. Obdeleven reports from its database of users what its seeing. Not sure for specific hardware model. Mine is an H50. Obdeleven screen attached. I'm not a firmware expert 😂. I reckon mib2 high will top out at that.

1409 is not the latest. 1447 is. Drop me a PM if you want it. Don't pay anyone for software updates.

Hello together,

I got the following infotainment system:

Device P/N: 5F0035043V
Hardware: H41
Software: 0123
Installed SW Train version: MHI2_ER_SEG11_S0257

As far as I know I can perform the following steps:

0123 -> 0674 -> 0818 -> 1447

Can somebody confirm that?
And the most important question is, where can I get these firmwares?

Thanks in advance!

Nobody has ever said where the updates come from, do they spill out of ODIS or some other route. In the past people have tried to trade in updates on the thread and we know retrofitters sell them with instructions but where do they originate from ?.

Morning, I've went through this and other threads but can't find the update for mine, I've not seen many with the same details and they have no information to follow up on.
Chillout sent me a few but none have worked unfortunately.
I have MIiB2
Hardware H30,
Software 0351,

I think it goes 0359 then 0368?

Any help with this would be really appreciated.

Managed to get an update from East Yorkshire Retro fits, took a couple of times to get it to load but ok now.

Does anyone know how to clear the fault code that it leaves behind, ive got OBD Eleven and it doesnt have Confirmation of Installation like VCDS

It's there but needs some labour. Often you have to keep chasing down the error repeating the process since they can stack up with each one cleared at a time so the recalc changes.

Hi guys, I just bought a used Seat Leon ST, and all i can say is the infotainment system seems pretty good! at least to my ears :cool:
It also has nav system and full link, however I was wondering if I could update the firmware to a more recent one (the car has more than 4 years).
I have seen some users updating it to 330 first and then to 369, however i cannot find the software package anywhere, can please someone help me?

Part No 5QA035846
Software 0245
HMI software H25.14.78_STD2Nav_EU

I am also looking to update the maps, however I still do not know if I have just to download them from the SEAT site and load them to an SD card.... it seems to good to be true.

Thanks if anyone can help out!

Let someone else answer your firmware question. On the maps you have standard navigation system. You must not follow the Seat map update site that's for if you have valid Mapcare which was never sold in the UK. However one guy on the navigation thread back in 2017 developed the "workaround" which side steps Mapcare. See the resource link I wrote


1520 is the current release. I give the link to that but I believe that the Seat Navigation site has that one on it but whether it's Skoda, VW or Seat all the same identical release so you go to the one that is the fastest, generally VW.

The important thing is not to delete your existing overall.nds file on the card, you will need that just to replace the one on the download. Retrofitters sell a £20 mod now that avoids copying that file out but you can save £20. Use the map card that came with the car and follow the link. How to make good accidentally deleting that file is also covered on the link. It was found going back in time was the universal fix to all screw ups with loosing the matching overall.nds file the car is paired to.

M.I.B. update!

Can now be run completely from SD card, no D-Link needed anymore for MHI2 units.

SCREENSHOT_(Sdl_7DD2(Tg;Sgi))_TIME_2000_01_01_00_00_00_GEOCOORD_LAT_0.0_LONG_0.0_5202074_Nr_31.png

NOTE:
M.I.B. is running on Harman MHI2(Q) units (MIB 2.x) only.

CAUTION:
Ensure that a external power is connected to the car during any flash or programming process!
It is not recommended to flash with running engine!
Power failure during flasing/programming will brick your unit.
All you do and use at your own risk!

Prepare SD card:
Extract all files of the M.I.B. to the root directory of a clean SD-Card (FAT32/NTFS formatted)
Patched IFS-stage2 images have to be placed on the SD card in the folder /patches
Pre-patched (CP, FEC and EL) ifs-root-stage2 images can be found for all recent MHI2 FW versions here: https://bit.ly/3nPIHl8
You only have to copy the folder(s) you need for your car(s) - e.g. /patches/MHI2_ER_SKG13_P4526_MU1440_PATCH
They are already prepared in the right way, so that the tool can use them right away
In case you want to use your own patches (not recommended) - ask us first to help you:
For each SW-train a seperate folder is needed e.g. /patches/MHI2_ER_SKG13_P4526_MU1440_PATCH
The folder has to contain the patched ifs-root-stage2 image with the following naming syntax:
"MU-version"-ifs-root-part2-"image start address in hex within RCC"-"image length in hex" --> e.g. MU1440-ifs-part2-0x00ba0000-1C06F300.ifs
image length is on byte 0x20 position 04-07 in little Endian of the original ifs-root-stage2 image (e.g. fresh from FW update)

NEW - GEM Method: use GEM
Insert the SD card into slot SD1 of your MHI2 unit.
Go to SW Update, select UPDATE, select SD card, select "M.I.B. Launcher V1.0", START update.
Installtion of M.I.B. on your Unit will start. The unit will restart three time until update process is finished.
GEM will be activated as part of the installation.
SVM error has to be cleared via M.I.B. function in GEM after installation
Enter GEM on your unit and have FUN!
Select ==>>M.I.B.-More_Incredible_Bash<<==

"old" D-Link Method: Connect to MHI2 and start M.I.B.:
D-Link - e.g. DUB-E100 HW rev. D1 - USB-Ethernet adapter is required to connect to your MHI2 unit.
Use Putty/Kitty to connect via UART or Telnet (MIB IP:172.16.250.248) and login into RCC (recommended: port:123) or MMX (port:23).
Login and password for your units SW train has to be known: https://anonymousfiles.io/xzi8Nq2r/
Check your SW-train, a pre-patched ifs-root-stage2 has to be present within the folder /patches
Insert the SD card into slot SD1 of your MHI2 unit and login to the RCC shell:
# Mount SD card in slot SD1
mount -uw /net/mmx/fs/sda0/
# start M.I.B by typing
/net/mmx/fs/sda0/start

Default screen seize of Putty/Kitty is often too small to display the M.I.B. menu in full.
Increase the window seize manually.

You should see (a more colourful) menu with the following content:

Patch Info:
All patches ifs-root-stage2 files in /patches/ (https://bit.ly/3nPIHl8) contain the following patches - all-in-one file:
CP - Component Protection removed
EL - ExceptionList.txt signature check removed (already prepared and part of each patch)
FEC - FECContainer.fec signature check removed
EL patch will re-enable the installation of MIB2Toolbox on latest FW version, as the removed signature check also applies to the POI upload process.

EL vs FEC:
It is recommended to use the EL patch over FEC.
ExceptionList.txt can be edited with any ASCII editor (Notepad++). Shorten the ExceptionList.txt to the FECs you need.
No need to change FECContainer.fec with WhatTheFec tool, therefore it will stay original on the unit.
In case of FW update - at dealer - no issues with illegal FECContainer and unusable unit.

Please don't pay for updates...
I'll see if I can supply you guys with some free ones!
Hello @Chillout!, I am new to the forum and Seat community. My System information is : Device part number:: 5F0035864A, HW:040, SW0425, NAV database: 5F019866F 0036 ECE 2014, Media codec:N/A.

Could you give me advice is my Nav MIB-1 and is there a way to be updated?
Thanks in advance!

1409 is not the latest. 1447 is. Drop me a PM if you want it. Don't pay anyone for software updates.

Hi a question, If i'm on MHI2_ER_SEG11_P4517_MU1219 now and want to go to 1447, do i have to go to 1308 first and then to 1447?

If anyone can help.
My unit is on 0363 at the moment and want to get it to 0515,
Can this be done without opening the unit up or is that the only way (bar sending it off to someone like East Yorkshire retrofits)
