I think you'd need the source files (.fla) in order to re skin or make modifications. im not 100% sure on this, but Id imagine it would be quite a involved process to decompile and not mess up any of the code that makes MFT work.

If you find out anything let us know I am interested in making some graphic mods
I recall someone else found this a while back, perhaps it was you? At that point I wasn't interested in re-writing MFT. It's kind of a different story now...

It was known a long time ago that MFT utilized Flash Lite, lol. But this is still kinda cool nonetheless.

Of course it would be much better if we just had a native program winning through WinAuto and not essentially a program running through a program.

But seriously there has to be a way to rewrite this system...

I'll be talking to the computer/electrical engineer at my work today about how I can use what very little programming abilities I have to do this.

Note: It might end up worse than what we currently have. heh...

What???

1) MFT is based on the MS Auto 4.x platform (Silverlight is integrated into Windows Embedded Automotive 7).
2) The developer of MFT (not Microsoft) chose to use Adobe FlashLite.

I was under the impression that these files are validated during software upgrades. Replacing files changes their signature and prevents this from working. Am I mistaken?

I've dissected the update and found that the files are indeed signed. Someone with the right resources could certainly find a way to circumvent that as well as install a different OS. Then it would just be a matter of getting the system talking to the rest of the car.

The Windows Automotive debugger would definitely come in handy and it only costs around $7000. I work with WinDBG at the kernel level all day long. If someone wants to buy the tools and supply a donor vehicle or hardware I'd be happy to take a crack at it.
