Possible to hack MFT!
 
Hey guys!

This is just a quick blurb to get a feeler for who wants to help me. I was just screwing around with the USB stick for the 3.2.2 update and I just realized I stumbled upon the skins for MFT.

I found all the screens! So this looks like I can alter them. They use Shockwave/Flash to display the screen. I am going to mess around with it some more and see how far I can get with it. I wanted to see if anyone else found this out or tried anything so far. It would be cool to be able to fully "skin" the MFT to your liking.

Please let me know if I should spend some time into tearing this thing apart and see what we can get into :)

I am hoping this could possibly lead to full custom screens with background!

What I did was update my car to v3.2.2. I started to explore the USB stick after the fact and extracted SyncMyRide\DA5T-14D545-ASA.ZIP\data\Repository\

If you look in there, it has a 8inchskins folder where you can take a gander through and see all their menus as .swf files. I have run some through the shockwave player and can see all the menus of MFT. So far I see all of the DA5T-14D545-???.ZIP are all the same inside, the last 3 letters signify something about the car, probably the available options.

I know, this is just a start. But I want to document what I am screwing around with so far! :) If anyone stumbles on something else please add! Lets be the first ones who can fully hack this b*tch!

Do you have Flash Builder? If so, have you tried decoding the SWF file so that you can modify it? If not, and you're curious, I can give you my email and you can send me one of the SWF files and I'll see what it holds on the backside. It could lead to the possibility of modifying.

The only issue I can think of is trying to figure out a way to either communicate openly with the memory module or tricking the system into updating those files from a memory stick.

No wonder MFT is glitchy it's using flash! I spend more time updating adobe products than using them...

I'm a software developer, but no real experience skinning in flash. I hope it's easier than skinning android phones with locked bootloaders.

GL!

I dont have any flash tools :( But when I get home I can definitely send you some files to mess around with! What I find funny is they have a "test" app which shows basic functions that are used, I will send that one also! PM me!

Well, they aren't getting into kernals and low level operating system stuff. That would drive some INSANE!

I spent most of the day talking about Linux with two of my techs; we were contemplating rewriting a kernel and re-developing a software package we use in house.

It was straight Geek talk for about 7 hours.
