(I'found this topic just now, I have posted a new topic with the same question, sorry) do you have found a way to replace Honda Connect retaining correct clock time on imid and wheel phone buttons?
Watching programs installed on my rc8 connect i can see some interesting system app such: com.fujitsu.ten.displayaudio.imidservice.
Is there any user with rooted Connect able to extract these applications and make them installable as apk on standard android radio?
It may be possible to make the i-mid fully compatible with third-party android radios
There may be options to repalce the radio (iMid) entierly and still retain the majority, if not all, of the functions. Even those requiring the CanBus data for such things as the trip computer etc. Also some features might be added also, but I have not seen a good enough video showing the replacement radio in a 9G Civic so cannot be sure.
However there are a handful available from Chinese sources that look interesting, the 10G versions have more videos obivosuly and show a lot more about what features are retained and which ones aren't maybe.
This looks to be a straight swap almost, this oens LHD but i have seen RHD versions to.
2. Dasaita seems to be a good one; https://dasaita.aliexpress.com/store..._5904672.1_3_4
No specific 9G fiting one I have found, but team a universal with a facia plate and it maybe a good option. Here is one fitted into a CRV which won't be far off what we have in our Civics;
Looks to retain all features, but again not found any good information when fitted in a 9G.
3. Phoenix looked to make one that integrated well to; https://www.phoenixautomotiveinc.com...box/make_honda
But no 9G, maybe a universal would work.
With regard to root on the iMid, you can do this yourself if you're up for the challenge?
All the information you're likely to need can be found here; https://forum.xda-developers.com/gen...droid-t3179549
it's a long thread, but there is a lot of good information in there.
Radios linked above that appear to retain features do so because the Honda specific apps have been extracted from the iMid I assume and rebuilt into APK's, so there is hope there.
If you find anything out please let us know, as I have not delved deeper.
