Source Code Here!

Post by duncho » Tue Jan 03, 2017 3:45 pm

I was wondering whether anyone from the forum would be able to modify the Linux base of Nissan Connect firmware if I provide the source code?

Here is the link to:
1. OSS license terms: http://oss.bosch-cm.com/download/Nissan ... CN2KAI.txt
2. Source code to D5xx firmware: http://oss.bosch-cm.com/download/Nissan ... t_D50x.zip

It would be nice to fix the bugs that BOSCH was unable to solve from 2014 as well as to add functionalities as is DVB-T2 tuner or video support to allow play video files from USB stick.

Nissan Connect modifications in the area of video streaming could have serious implications to say the very least. Who would sign off the mod for safety/insurance purposes?

I'd have said it was just as safe as checking facebook when you're doing 56mph down the motorway

If that is true then Nissan Connect is one dangerous piece of kit!

Glad I only use it for listening to my Doris Day collection. ;)

Cant help you with the code side of things, however do you know the spec of the hardware behind the system? It may struggle if it does not have the CPU/GPU (or APU...) powerful enough to display more than, essentially text!

No good news... So the "code" that BOSCH published is nothing else just formal abidance of Linux license. This source codes contain only open source codes that BOSCH used – Linux, some drivers for Linux, file system for Linux. But applications are missing. Other words to say it is absolutely useless. We would need a buddy in BOSCH to help with fix of bugs. Other than that is utopia.

...OR..... could it be hacked around with enough to create a completely custom ROM and application?! Hard work maybe, but may get lucky that the legwork has already been done. Downside is probably the loss of maps due to encryption

If could someone hack it, there is bilion of possibilities. I doubt someone would want to have old OE maps, but TomTom, iGo, Garmin or any other map which supports life traffic. But I'm strongly skeptical as hacking it is really tough job if possible at all.
