187B No Name C250 Android Auto
#1
I wanted to start a thread for the newer versions being sent from aliexpress. 
I ordered 187B 5314 C180 but I received: 

6RD035187B
SW-5406
HW-541
C250

i don't believe a Android Auto firmware update is available yet....
Hoping someone has had better luck searching.

i did it. during sw update you can get failure on 64% (as i remember)
i've unpacked the archive of firmware and edited config.txt, need to change all 1 to 0 in this file.
then updated this file in the archived firmawe and finished successfully

I'm a bit nervous about bricking the motherboard.  I heard people have flashed with wrong firmware and having to replace the board.
What happens at the failure point 64%? Can you reverse the process  back from this point?

The config  in 5314 C180 Frimware Noname 187B has the below 5 items. 
kernel_update:1
bootloader_update:1
vip_update:1
bt_update:1
middleware_update:1

So you just changed them to 0 and it works on the different C250 HW-541 unit?

i do not remember actually i have c 210 bt or 250
but sure hw541, sw 5406

first i've tried 5314 AA firmware , got error, after rebooting, the process started again update from beginning every time only 64%, i tried several times,
then i pulled out usb stick, put in PC, edited file, all of that items set to 0, returned usb stick to RCD and finished updating.

ive shared this information on 4pda forum, and at least one guy did the same sucessfully,
i dont know if he changed this file before his first try or after it like me.

why dont you understand, i dont recommend to install 5406, i had a problem when tried to flash 5314AA firmawe on 541hw headunit,
may be this problem is not common for all 541 hw, and certain units can be flashed without such problem, but some of them might have the same problem
