Chances are that the MFT system checks the card's serial or manufacturer data to verify it is legit. The folks that tried to make backups using cloning software (including one to clone photo cards to enable features of certain cameras) tried and the backups didn't work. I think 2 folks on the Edge forum tried, and one on the owners-owners group tried and failed.

Would be great though if someone checked to confirm. I would love to back up my card if I could.

Backing up the new card to the old may certainly be possible though!

Remember that the S in SD stands for Secure. That's because the standard has features (I've never looked into what they are) precisely designed to enable protecting the content from copying.

Couldn't for the life of me make the update work on USB. Got stuck on step 3/15 and had to fuse reset to get it out of that state.

Copied files to a SD card and popped it in. Installer started and proceeded successfully. I recommend a SD card if people are having difficulty getting USB to work.

As always, your response is spot on. Allow me to elaborate.

SD cards have built in digital rights management (DRM). There is a portion of the SD card memory which is used to implement the DRM and cannot be accessed by a user.

Trying to clone a navigation SD card by simply creating an image of the original is not possible.

But trying to scare people into not updating by saying it could void their vehicle warranty? Not cool.
You can't really expect Ford to say: hey, feel free to go and use your bootleg copy of the software, right? This is just standard response that most large corporations would give. We should probably be happy they are initiating a lawsuit against the person who posted it :)

As for voiding your warranty, the easy thing to do is deny you ever used it :) If you do somehow screw up your MFT (by whatever means), simply wait for the usb key to arrive, and then claim it screwed up when you used the official key.

Now, as far as capability of screwing things up. Well, I took a brief look at the contents. I already know the executable images are digitally signed, so a nefarious middle man would not be able to modify it without having to resign it, and he won't have the correct private key. There are resource files within that don't have signatures (swf, bitmaps, etc). These could be corrupted. Lastly, the installer infs are not signed, so you could muck with those and managed to perhaps install the wrong version or delete some critical file. None of this would damage the system permanently, it just might need to be reflashed at the dealer.

Myself, I figure I'll wait for the key (although I plan to bring my car in for service in a few days, so I will see if they can get it to me at the dealer sooner). But, I am very impatient, so who knows, I might change my mind.

Got this updated, and wow this is amazing. This is what the system should have been like from day one. Everything is much snappier, and it looks so much better too. Thanks to the people that got this early and loaded it up for everyone to enjoy!

I just want to make sure to point out, nobody has or is bootlegging this software nor was it obtained in any sort of illegal manner. The software was zipped up from a USB stick that was sent to a dealership. This is the same USB stick that Ford is sending out to MFT customers, and has publicly stated that it will be available to some customers on their own website by the end of the week.

Upgrade installed smooth. Everything seems to work fine just nothing comes up for NAV -- so I assume when I get the new SD card it'll load the NAV upgrade and that functionality will return. Really couldn't care less about NAV if this upgrade fixes most if not all of the problems I have been experiencing...

First screen


Hopefully the last time I will see this, AKA the MFT BSOD


Upgrade successful about 45 minutes later


Home with wallpaper (title/artist not showing for my connected and playing iPhone 4S). When I touch NAV nothing happens, but the systems seems to be working fine.
