I am still looking for a better source, but I found some v70.XX OS files on the description of the YouTube video here
. Based on comments its legit. If anyone has the checksum for NA_70.00.100A or 70.00.335C please share so that we can also independently verify the files.

I found a working link (I didn't check the checksums or try to install it yet).
I don't want to share it publicly (or explain how to find it), but I can't PM (as I only just registered), maybe somebody or TalonTsi90 can PM me and I could respond..

Rumor is Mazda is DMCA-ing all places who share it. Dunno why, its not like anyone is claiming its theirs.
Now I understand why this guy is saying to use Tor.

You can share the files with unionshare. You have to use Tor for downloading it, but no one will know who uploads them :)
Unfortunately, we no longer have the files unless someone who downloaded it before shares it.

TAKE DOWN NOTICE FOR SERVER ACTIVATED BY Mega..
I WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERING A SERVER, PLZ DO NOT ASK FOR INFO PRIVATELY.
All too hard in 2021.

HOME SCREEN for .up FIRMWARE SHOWN ABOVE

GENUINE Mazda CarPlay+Android Auto All HERE!
ALSO link in Sig for all latest Firmware for updates With or Without CP/AA conversion.

This OFFICIAL Mazda CarPlay+AndroidAuto is for all Mazda Models which have Mazda Connect or MZD Connect, these Installation Instructions MUST BE Followed Exactly or you will never get CP/AA to work. CP/AA comes together as ONE Installation, it cannot be separated.

All of your existing Connect User/Display FEATURES still remain and still function as normal.

The following Genuine MAZDA details is for current Mazda's Worldwide using factory installed MAZDA Connect or MZD Connect Color Touch-screen (see above pic), your existing Car Warranty is not affected.

YES this Genuine CarPlay and AndroidAuto RETRO Upgrade is for Your MAZDA if you want to do a self or home installation.

BELOW Pic is the End Result AFTER you have installed the 74.00.230A FIRMWARE (the correct Region) FIRST, then RUN+USE this new FIRMWARE, and then INSTALL the TWO NEW Genuine Mazda Parts LAST.




REGIONS for FIRMWARE
4A N (ADR)
is for Australia-NZ, Asia (except Japan +China), Middle East, Brazil, Pacific O
EU N is for Europe and UK
NA N is for North America, USA, Canada, Mexico.

PRECISELY for the Model Years from 2014 to Today which covers MAZDA 2, MAZDA 3, MAZDA 6, MAZDA CX-3, CX-5, CX-8, CX-9 and MX-5.
#This Genuine Mazda CP/AA Retrofit Parts Kit and Firmware/Software is not for 1st Generation of Mazda CX-5 and Mazda 6 using the factory TomTom in-Dash Navi.

NOTE: IF your NEW 2019~ Mazda Models (listed above) DOES NOT come Standard with Factory Fitted CP/AA but has 'any' Version of 7x.00.xxxx Firmware already installed from Factory then ALL you need to purchase/install are the TWO Mazda Parts Listed below in your Region to get CP/AA to work.

This Thread is NOT for Tweaks or ANY other cheap way to install CP/AA (which does not work anyway and will end up costing you more $$s).

NOTE:

You can not rename File whatsoever.
You can not have ANY other file or files or folders on your flash drive.
You must only have the correct .up file(s) on a small FAT32 (about 16GB) Flash Drive, file CAN NOT be in a .zip or .rar format.


IF still having issues of CMU not seeing USB Flash Drive do a full format clean of Drive.
Put small <16GB USB Drive in Windows 10 PC, go to Start, This PC, RIGHT Click on the Drive, Select Format.., Select FAT32, Select Start, click OK, all files on Drive will be Deleted and Drive Re-Formatted (cleaned).
Copy/Paste new Firmware file(s) ONLY on Drive, remove from PC and try in your car again.


IF you are using any MacOS PC to download file then that will also corrupt your Flash Drive as Macs add hidden files onto flash drive and car CMU will not see the file.

MAZDA ONLY supports MS-Intel Windows 10 64bit OS and is used by all car makers for Diagnostic and Maintenance UPDATES in their Automobiles.

Apple (Mac) systems is not supported or used by any car brands in Service Departments or for Diagnostics, period.


WIRELESS Carplay
is ONLY INCLUDED WITH 74.00.230A FIRMWARE for your region which is also a normal Update progression from the now outdated 70.00.367A...as of today (May 10, 2021) 74.00.230A is only available for NA N.

HOWEVER one Must Also Purchase a New CMU from a 2021 Model for a Wireless CP spec car and CMU as not ALL 2021 Models come standard from factory with WCP CMU.

WIRELESS CARPLAY WILL NOT WORK ALONE WITHOUT 74 Firmware and NEW 2021 CMU (meant for WCP), as far as I know those TWO things are all that are required, the Firmware is Free and New CMU is about $1,200 to $1,500 USD.

View attachment 242823


This THREAD Does NOT apply to ALL NEW Next Gen 2019 Mazda 3 (BP) or 2020 Mazda CX-30 (DM) or MX-30.

YES, You can install this New Updated 74.00.230A Firmware (Region specific) only WITHOUT doing the Hardware (Two New Mazda Parts) Installation.
By installing this new Firmware ONLY your car will have the very latest available CONNECT Operating System and is FUTURE CP/AA READY...which can be done later or never.
IF later you want this working CP/AA Feature you still MUST install the TWO Genuine Mazda Parts.

****

Below will show you how to and where to go to get the Genuine Mazda FIRMWARE Files from for free and where to download the Video's and .Pdf Instructions.

Purchase is ONLY for GENUINE Mazda CarPlay with AndroidAuto and WILL NOT WORK without Installation of new 70's Firmware FIRST and THEN the TWO ALL NEW Genuine Mazda Parts installed Second and Third . .. in that Order.. . PERIOD!

*Method in these new Updates are now ONLY a Single 'UPDATE.up' File to Run.
No more separated Fail-safe + Reinstall.up files, Now ONLY ONE 'update.up' File.
You Select either “Reinstallation Package” or ''Update Package'' AFTER file 'SEARCHING' from Your pre-loaded file on Your quality 'USB FLASH DRIVE'.

ALL the other NEW Mazda Parts are a MUST DO requirement as the process of adding and the installing of CP/AA Firmware and the MUST have Genuine Mazda Parts has not changed. DO NOT BUY or USE any other systems 'put together last year' as this WILL corrupt the use of this very latest Genuine Mazda UPDATED FIRMWARE listed below.
NOTE: There are some cheap options to separately install AndroidAuto ONLY without CarPlay and the 2 New Mazda Parts Listed Below, I strongly advise NOT to go down this route as you must use the OLD and Outdated 59 Firmware which is buggy and at times very unreliable with communication errors infecting OTHER working Systems Hardware inside your car, engine, IC control modules or display screen, you should only use latest Mazda Firmware.
The GENUINE Mazda Firmware here is Free and the Genuine Mazda Parts are not that expensive and Mazda is still maintaining updates for a few more years.

Like @ForeverYoung I've found a firmware link that appears to be legitimate, although I've not been able to check/try it yet. I don't want to get the link DMCA'd so if a mod/admin can let me know the best way to share it I'll send it on.

@ASH8 I see that lots of people are looking around for alternate downloads and this might lead to someone installing counterfait/compromised firmwares.
It's clearly illegal to share the original firmware
It's however clearly dangerous to install compromised images
Could you please post sha-256 hash keys of the images you had in the past so that people can check against anything they download and avoid briking their headunits?
-Thanks!

p.s.: Ideally posting the sha-256 of each uncompreseed .up files would be the safest way since any zip/etc... will hold different hashes

Are you talking about: MD5 (128 Bit) Hash and SHA-1 (160 Bit) Hash?
Before anything you should always check both.
I don't know if this gives us a 100% guarantee on updates!

yes: MD5, SHA-1 or SHA-256 will do
tampering with them is technically feasible but usually impratical unless from very powerful attackers (e.g. lots of computing power) so SHA-256 are pretty safe

Hi There guys.

I just recently ordered the AA Upgrade kit of eBay for my 2015 Mazda 2 (Demio)

I'm currently running 70.00.352 EU N, that i managed to update to before all of the silly take down notices by Mazda.

Any chance someone could PM a link to anything newer then that version like 70.00.367A or 74.00.230A?

Is it even worth to upgrade the FW from .352? my primary use case for MZD is BT streaming and AA (after upgrade)

Regards
Wojtek

Hi

Sorry, just to clarify, can anyone confirm that I can install the android auto module and lead with 70.00.100 EU?

If not does anyone have a link to the next EU/UK upgrade that will allow me to do it.

Many thanks
