Re: XAV-AX100 Sony -- Please disable the Warning Screen on start up + more

Fantastic work, I have yet to try it. What do we know about potential future official Sony updates? Would they still be applicable after this patch?

 

Cheers,

J.-P.

Re: XAV-AX100 Sony -- Please disable the Warning Screen on start up + more

I ran it on two of my XAV-AX100 units and it loaded fine on both with no obvious problems encountered so far.

 

Of course, your mileage may vary, so you assume responsibility if it goes wrong.

+1, this is a very poorly implemented disclaimer feature.  I will test the "caution message" hack shortly.  Thanks to whomever programmed it!

I've tried the hack and it works flawlessly for me.  Booting into either the tuner or Android Auto are now both warning free.  Very nice.

 

I downloaded the entire Sony-XAV-AX100-master zip folder and then otherwise followed the directions given on the Sony website for an official firmware update.

Try at your own risk, but it went fine for me.

I installed the update and only had a small problem downloading one of the files into the update folder.  Otherwise it works great. 

 

Next thing to fix is the preset channels should display the radio station numbers.  Who cares about the last song that was played hours ago.

 

Thanks to the person who is smarter than me about this and was able to remove the warnings!!

I wish the next update will allow me to swipe left/right without automatically changing the AM/FM preset station. It's just bad software programming to switch the station without the user selecting it.

Imagine if you were to scroll through your smartphone's media player's library and each time a page is loaded the "Now Playing" track changes...

Re: XAV-AX100 Sony -- Please disable the Warning Screen on start up + more

I just wanted to add my vote and support for the initial request to remove the warning screen.  I do not own this head unit but almost bought it from Best Buy last night before reading reviews on Amazon alerting me to this annoying issue.  After googling this receiver to confirm the negative Amazon reviews, I was led here.  HEY SONY listen to your customers and address silly issues like this!!! You have lost a customer because I can see that after months of the issue being brought to your attention, you have done NOTHING about it!  How many other potential buyers don't bother registering on a forum to let you know they will spend their money somewhere else?

 

I'm sure this is a waste of my time and my message will fall on deaf ears at Sony, just as the many other replies to this thread have. I will continue to research competitive head units from other companies that won't make me hate my stereo every time I get in my truck.  It's like paying $100 for a nice steak and finding a ******roach on your plate.  No matter how nice the food is, the experience is ruined.  Disappointing that Sony chooses not to bother solving such a minor issue.  Thank you to Superx for bringing this to my attention BEFORE I spent money on this unit.  I appreciate your review on Amazon.

Re: XAV-AX100 Sony -- Please disable the Warning Screen on start up + more

hey Joffrey, I created a community account just to tell Sony:
a) that nag is beyond ******. By the time it comes up I'm already halfway down the road (slow boot)
b) your customers ask you to provide you a solution to permanently disable it, you don't react
c) a hacker manages to fix this problem seemingly easi by injecting the click for the user

what have you done apart from sitting on your hands and loosing customers? People don't buy this unit for that exact reason. I mean come on ..?!
