There is an engineering mode for our Touchscreen Monitor.
Here is how to access.
Proceed at your own peril! 👿

1.)
243



2.)
244



3.)
245



4.)
246



5.)
247




Here are a list of things your boy is trying to do.
• Install 3rd Party Apps such as YouTube, and Video Player on the Touchscreen.
• Install an Internet Browser like Chrome. I am not sure how to do this because our Venues do not have WiFI connectivity unlike other Hyundai's. Maybe Piggyback off the Blue Link Connection?
• Have the Camera Turn On at Will because It is helpful in certain scenarios.

I am not sure how hackable these touchscreens are. I'm not willing to go hardcore mode, because I don't want to lose Bluelink yet because of my membership.

Bad enough to "brick" your phone. You certainly don't want to brick your car!

I just got my Venue a couple weeks ago and have been playing around with the Infotainment.
First - Mine is a 2020 SE, so it only came with the audio system w/ Android Auto + Apple Carplay. No Navigation or Sirius XM.

I was hoping to be able to sideload some apps over ADB, as demonstrated in this video:

Here's what my software update screen looks like, and where I had to tap 5 times then 1 time to get to Engineering mode. The password on mine was 2400.

In the engineering mode I was able to turn on WiFi, and make the Venue connect to my phone that was configured as a hotspot.
But I couldn't figure out a way to turn on ADB. In the linked video, the guy choses an option called "Enable Auto Test" that turns on ADB, but I didn't have that option. I did see an option that said "ADB TCP", but it didn't seem to do anything.
I verified that there was no ADB service running via a port scanner, so I wasn't able to sideload any apps.

One interesting thing I did notice: There are all kinds of tests that can be run to verify that the hardware works. One of them was a GPS test, which verified that the system does have a working GPS in it. I'm curious how different the SE version is from the others. Maybe it's the same hardware, but just missing the Navigation app?

Update:

I was playing around yesterday, and happened to notice that Hyundai had posted a new software update for Display Audio on Feb 17th:

I downloaded the update file to a flash drive, went to the update screen, and it offered to install it. The unit rebooted and started to install, but it quickly stopped the installation and came back up with the same version as before (update was not applied).

Then I went into the engineering mode and chose the option for "force update". It took maybe 20 minutes or so, but this time the update worked and it came back up running version QX.USA.D2V.002.100.201113.

The main difference that I can see is that the option to control the wi-fi is gone from the engineering mode, and instead there is a wi-fi option in the main menu. This option enables Android Auto over wireless (no more USB cable needed!)

Thanks for the news about the system update.
I'll do it over the weekend.

About the GPS, it might be a software thing.
I think some Mazda cars were equipped with GPS capabilities from factory, and you just have to buy ($400-$600) the software at the mazda dealership to activate it.
I believe people were able to crack it, and started selling the bootleg software on ebay and etc. It is cheaper to mass produce parts so it might just work for our venues. lol

If you are to install apps on the venue, I'd stay away from launchers because I heard those apps are notorious for bricking head units.

Let us know your progress with it 💯

I just downloaded the 2.7GB update for the navigation through here: Navigation Updater | Official Hyundai Motors Navigation Update Website

I am now going to look into forcing it onto my touchscreen unit. Let's see if it is possible.
I'm guessing if you can sideload apps, then we can load this baby onto it.

I will see if I can put it on an SD card and try.
Thank you already updated but cant see how to do the android auto wireless. Im not doing sideloads, Im just using screen2auto from here dont need to buy the app you get one free download a month, just get the screen2auto then you can mirror your phone to the car no ROOT no unlocking anything needed.
