The ultimate MIB2-HIGH toolbox.
The ultimate MIB2-HIGH toolbox for all your MIB2 High customization needs.
Note: this screen has the potential to ruin your MIB2 HIGH unit. The developers are not responsible for any troubles to anyone or anything caused by this toolbox. It's never our intention to harm any person, car or brand. Use the tools wisely, don't be a douche.
Note2: This is not a universal Jailbreak-like solution for all your needs and firmware versions.
Note3: If you're a business that tries to make a profit off of this: Don't be an asshole, don't charge money for this. This project is done in our free time, out of love for the community. I've risked bricking my own hardware while testing, and invested a lot of time in the research. Instead of making money, why not support this project with your knowledge or a small donation or become a Patreon.

Hold the MENU button, and go to TESTMODE. On older versions you can go to the developer menu by holding the MENU button for about 10 seconds.
Go to the Green Developer Menu
There will be an additional menu called "mqbcoding". When you see this, the installation was succesful.
You're now done.

Most screens have a description inside, or show information when running a script. It's always wise to have an SD-card in slot 1.
This screen lets you dump skin-files(images.mcf files), Android Auto configuration files (gal.json) and Startup screens (.canim files). Make sure an SD-card with enough space is inserted in one of the slots. Dumps will be placed in a folder specific for your unit (FAZIT) and firmware version.
This screen has 2 buttons: - Patch Android Auto to enable custom third party apps. No root is needed on your phone. - Recover the original gal.json file in case you didn't like the patch or something is not working right.
This screen lets you install new images.mcf for each of the 6 skin-folders, from the SkinFiles folder on your SD-card. Use the dump files as a guideline. Don't install any files that are meant for other firmwares because it will mess up your graphics and functionalities of your infotainment unit. This screen will also let you recover the skins from backup.
This screen will let you import new .esd files from the GreenMenu folder on your SD-card.
In the Tools folder you will find a couple of tools: - extract-canimseat.py - extract-canimvw.py
These are Python-scripts to extract startup screen files (.canim files) in 2 formats. If one of the scripts doesn't extract your canim, try the other one. Both work in the same way: extract_canim.py , for instance:
extract_canim.py test.canim .\testfiles\
This a python script to extract skinfile containers (mcf) and it works similar to the canim-extract: extract_mcf.py , for instance:
extract_mcf.py images.mcf .\extracted\
These are the scripts to compress the startup-screens. Make sure you use the same compress-method you used when extracting. Usage: compress-canim.py , for instance:
compress-canim.py test.canim modified.canim .\testfiles\
compress-mcf.py images.mcf images2.mcf .\extracted\
extract-cff.py images.cff c:\extracted\
If you run into any issues, consult the F.A.Q..
This toolbox probably doesn't work on all available firmware versions. IOC version can be an issue too and can cause fatal metadata/release info errors upon installing. I'm currently investigating this issue (issue #1)
