JL3001 Firmware v1.4

Post by InsaneAudioSupport » Mon Jul 27, 2020 6:20 pm

Hi, All. Insane Audio's JL3001 Firmware v1.4 is now available. This update includes various updates to the Control Settings app (so you can do things like change the way the unit powers off when your door are on or off), has some bluetooth connectivity enhancements when using autosleep mode and various other refinements for speed and stability. Note that this is not a manditory update but we do recommend our customers take the time to update their units as this version adds a bunch of odds and ends that we have been meaning to send out for a few weeks now.

As always, we'll first want to check your build number to see if you need this update. Go to Settings->System->About Machine->Build Number. The build number starts with "rk33990userdebug 9 PI" followed by a date code.
  • If your date code is 20200720 (July 20, 2020) then you already have this update. You’re good to go!
  • If your date code is something earlier then July 20, 2020 then you want this update.
  • If your date code is later than July, 2020, that means you are reading this in the future and you are on some newer version of our software that likely has all kinds of super awesome features.
To apply this software update -
  • You are going to want to right click on update.zip and save locally to your computer. Note that it is important to download this locally first to avoid data corruption.
  • Right click on the CANBUS.UPDE file and save locally to your computer.
  • Then you’ll want to copy both of these files onto a microSD card formatted in FAT32. You can re-use your Insane NavEngine GPS card if you want – just make sure you delete those two files when you are done updating (but don’t delete any of your Navigation data!)
  • Copy the two files you just downloaded to that microSD card and properly eject it from your computer.
  • Next, you'll want to power up your JL3001.
  • Insert the microSD card that you just put the necessary files on. Right away, you should see a dialog box asking if you'd like to update your software. We are going to do that, but before you click on Install make sure you check the box that says wipe data and format flash. That part is very important – please make sure you check that box first.
  • The unit will then go through and perform the software update. Please let it complete and don't turn anything off until its done. When the unit comes back up, we're going to want to update your CanBus system.
  • Go to settings -> car -> factory settings. It will ask you for a password. Please enter “canupdates2” then click on OK.
  • The unit should then apply the canbus update and you should ultimately see a “Download Success!!” message.
  • Note that this will only work if the canbus.upde file is on your GPS microSD card.
  • After everything is done, press the home button. Then let’s go ahead and reboot your system by going to settings -> system -> reboot.
Your software is now updated, but then there are just a few minor things we'll want to do to restore everything back to the factory state:
  • Properly eject your SD card from the GPS slot and remove it. Put your Insane NavEngine GPS card back in. (or, if you were using your Insane NavEngine card just delete those two update files)
  • To re-install Insane NavEngine, open up the file browser. Navigate to GPS->Insane NAVI then click on iGO.apk and follow the prompts.
  • If you'd like your koi pond wallpaper back, open the file browser. Navigate to GPS->INSANE NAVI->Additional_APK and click on Water Garden_1.6.4.apk. Follow the prompts to install. Then you can long press on the home screen and set the live wallpaper.
  • You'll need to open the bluetooth app, search for and pair to your OBDII adapter for your live engine data.
  • You'll want to re-configure the Torque app as well. Go ahead and open that up. Press the settings icon on the bottom left. Select Settings -> OBD2 Adapter Settings -> Choose Bluetooth Device. There should only be one listed so go ahead and select that. Note that there are also some general settings that you may want to change like "start in dashboard mode" which will allow you to immediately jump to your gauges when you press the Torque icon. These settings are in Settings -> General Preferences
Thats all there is to it! As always, all Insane Audio customers get lifetime technical support so if you need help with this update or anything else, please feel free to hit us up anytime at www.insaneaudio.com/support

Optional: update your bluetooth chip

The following is optional, but will also update your bluetooth chip to the latest software. In order to do this, you will need an android phone.
  • As mentioned, you are going to need an android phone
  • On the phone, you’ll first need to temporarily change the screen timeout to whatever the longest setting is (30min on most devices). You’ll find that under settings -> display -> screen timeout
  • Download and install Gaia_v3_2_9.apk
  • You should also download the BIN file and save it somewhere on your phone
  • On your JL3001, turn on Bluetooth and make sure NO other devices are connected. This is important. Remove all Bluetooth devices.
  • Launch GAIA control on your android device
  • Select JL3001 bluetooth then click Connect BR/EDR
  • Allow the pairing request
  • After everything is paired successfully, you can click on UPGRADE
  • You’ll need to tell the tool where you saved that BIN file. Select it and click Start Upgrade
  • This should take about 4-6 minutes. Please make sure your device stays on while the process completes.
  • At the end, you’ll get a pop up window asking if you’d like to proceed. Click on continue.
  • After everything is done, you’ll get one final Data Commit popup box. Click continue.
  • Finally, you’ll get an Upgrade complete message. Click on OK.
That's it! Go ahead and reboot your JL3001 by going to settings -> system -> reboot.
