Hi fellow members,

new version 2.4.90 is rolled out via OTA (or downloadable _here_). Unfortunately there are some bugs introduced with that update.

- Android Auto bottom line fast starters don't work when running the default launcher in the car (they are not shown at all on PC using Vysor). They just use space on the screen and you can't stop them from being shown. Found no way to modify/hide these buttons.

- Screen tap detection is inacurate: You have to tap slightly offset to get a reaction. The firmware itself provides no way to readjust.

- Connection between CarPC and head unit (Toyota GR86) does not work reliable. Sometimes it connects, most times I jut get a yellow LED.

- ...

Please add your findings

Bye for now  Fred

Is the touch screen still usable? Can you please send a video of the issues in a google drive link to email?

@admin Yes. You don't have to go exactly to a button, just a bit offset and it works. The attempt to make a video was not successful last night, I'll try it again in daylight.

Yesterday 2.4.86 stopped working for me. The screen stayed black, today on the PC, perfect, I updated to 2.4.90. Then I will test in the car ( Hyundai Ioniq)

That's it, updated and working perfectly, as before. How can I know if I have the basic or the Pro?

If you can see your IMEI number on the system information you got a Pro, otherwise it's the basic version.

I still haven't been able to update, the update gets caught, maybe it's because I have the carpc rooted?

It's a bummer to reinstall myself again all buff

@tiosanturzi Javier, rooted CarPC won't update (I believe, didn't work before). You might try a "dirty flash" (just "Download" and not "Upgrade") and untick User files. This might work for you. But without full ROM we can't flash...

@zadar1980 If it doesn't upgrade OTA you have to go back to unrooted version 2.4.90. For the time being there is no full ROM 2.5.10 available.
