Well if someone is willing to be a guinea pig and an Edge/Explorer/Flex etc. owner posts up the file online, someone can give it a shot. I'd rather not try it though, although according to the Ford IVT team its the same software so there should be no reason it doesn't work.

No there isn't...at all. It depends entirely on what needed to be updated to fix these bugs. It's not patching source files, it's replacing binaries. You can add in a single line of code which lets say adds 64 bytes to a file, but the upgrade is going to be far, far bigger than 64 bytes since you aren't distributing an updated source.
For an extreme example, I remember with Mass Effect people complained about Garrus's low res face. Bioware refused to fix it though because to update it would require a multi-gigabyte patch to replace the texture file when his face texture is just a tiny, tiny part of that (QA is supposed to prevent this sort of thing, but nobody's process is perfect).

Off topic but ME2 and ME3 made me love Garrus that much more because his ugly mug wasn't an ugly blurry mug.

No, everything else is off-topic. This thread is now about Mass Effect.

Sorry but that is not the topic, if you wanted to start a separate thread for this in its proper location i.e. the off topic lounge/ boredom thread then go ahead, but this one was to discuss the upcoming MFT update.

Excuse me, but discussing things being off-topic isn't the topic. Please keep discussion to the upcoming release of MyFord Touch 3.2. If you want to discuss being off-topic, please go to the proper location. Please relocate your MFT update discussion thread to a forum that discusses cars the update actually applies to.

Just because they say the update doesn't apply doesn't mean that it wouldn't work. It might be a bit of a risk to install it before its officially released but since its essentially the same software in all the vehicles with MFT it should work just fine and might correct many of the issues, but you won't know if you don't try and install it.

Unless of course IVT was lying about it being the same, but afaik it appears to be the same in all of the Fords and Lincolns I sat in at the autoshow.

If anyone is a bit brave and willing to be the beta tester for the update it is available here http://www.syncmyride.com/syncmedia/...atepackage.exe

The install procedure is the same as the previous update, clean formatted flash drive at least 2.0GB capacity, and the car needs to be run for approximately an hour while it installs.

Select "Save".
A "Save-As" pop up window will appear with a file named "Gen2v322build12156updatepackage.exe". Choose a folder on your computer to save the file temporally.

"Select "Save".
When the download complete pop up appears select "Open folder".
A file named "Gen2v322build12156updatepackage.exe" will be highlighted. Double click on the file.
A download warning may appear, if so, agree to continue by choosing "yes", "ok", or "run".
An extract pop up window will appear. The extract destination to the USB drive will need to be selected. To browse for the USB drive, select the "button with three dots" located to the right of the pop up.
Scroll down and select "computer".
Select the "USB drive/removable disk". USB drives previously provided for FSA 11A02 and 11A03 will be titled "SYNC".
Select "Extract".
Confirm USB drive contents. Select the USB drive located under My Computer. A folder named "SyncMyRide" and two files (autoinstall.lst and DONTINDX.msa) will be present on the USB drive; it's now ready for the Vehicle Software Install procedure. "

GB, not gb. There's no such thing as gb. I would also be interested in seeing someone try this and reporting back. Specifically, if they notice any interface changes. If there are any differences, I wonder if it's a change on par with the interface changes between Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 or the changes between Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. I also wonder if those brave enough to test this will have to unshackle the MFT's AI. If so, I reserve the right to blame them for plugging in the overlord. Can anyone confirm that the official installation procedure for this update doesn't include AI unshackling? That'd be a dealbreaker for me.

Say your car appears to have MFT, why don't you go and find out if this will work, it would either prove or disprove the theory perpetuated by our resident IVT member that the base software is all the same and that it would work without a hitch. If no one attempts it then it can't be proven true.
