Retriction hack + 16 ilx premium

Here is a nice hack i found, i was just crying because my car wouldn't read my text message while on drive mode. after researching, heres what i picked up. There is a operation restriction function that can be turnt off allowing the # dail and navi address search to function while in drive mode. Along with the text/email.
To access the operation restriction tab you must enter the diagnostic settings
For the premium models (2 screens without navi) hold the back-audio-menu buttons for 3 sec until this screen appears




On this screen now hold the enter botton for 3 sec and u should end up in the " for developer " screen, as so...




Scroll down the operation restriction and hit enter and on this next screen hit OFF like so...




Now select return and continue selecting return untill you are back out the diagnostic menu.
All restrictions should be off and you should now be able to search a address on the navi and view your incoming messages under email.

For those of you with the tech plus it can be done as well just have to figure out which bottons to hold that leds the diagnostics menu you should try navi-menu back bottons to see if that works


Note. You will need to perform this process after the car is turnt off, for it will reset back to restriction on, i do it when I'm warming up the car, it doesn't take long once you know where to go.
On that note please be safe while driving .

Im just loving this find tho. Also found if you go on the diagnostic menu and under the tab DSP and turn the function Flat to on mode as so..








It gives a lil bass boost, i suggest trying this while a song is playing so you can hear the difference.

And here Id hope some clever Digital Signal Processing would improve audio.
Say a cross-talk filter, or something more clever like SRS, BBE, or DTS Automotive.

Funny how it does play with your audio (even in a standard Premium system).

I guess that's what they mean by a Premium 7 speaker audio system, instead of the standard sub-less 6 speaker setup.


If you make changes to the DSP, does it save when you shut the car off?

^ I wish the dsp setting would stay on. Everything that is changed in the diagnostic menu always resets after the car turns off. We need a hack for that!

I wonder if there's a way to 'save' a setting. Like maybe a special key combination you do to back out of the Diagnostic Menu or the like.

Has anyone managed to get full mirroring by tricking the console your phone is running the navigation app using Watchdog Pro or Dissident? As I understand from other sites these apps allow true multitasking ergo assign the Acuralink navi app to run in the foreground while you run whatever you want along with it. The solution seems to be jailbroken iPhones only. For Android an app called Multitasking seems to do the trick without rooting it.

I believe it is possible for ILX premium owners with Acuralink to run a jailbroken app called Dissident to get true mirroring and NOT have to go through the Diagnostics mode to mirror your phone. Could somebody confirm this??
