RHR Gracenotes Update (Sox comes through again!)

Noticed a new update, generously supplied by Sox over on the unofficial MyGig site http://mofv.com/mygig/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6266. It's a big download, almost 3GB. According to Sox it can be loaded on a USB flash to update the RHR just like the last update he provided.



I will attempt the update Friday, hopefully some better album art is in here!

Thanks Sox!

Thumbs up Re: RHR Gracenotes Update (Sox comes through again!)

Major Improvement! I went from maybe less than 5% of over 450 songs stores on the Media Center displaying album art to more than 75% of them showing album art. It's not perfect, some tracks show the wrong art, some still show that crappy genre art, and others, the generic uconnect art, but overall a major improvement.



Painless install!
  1. Download the file. (Nearly 3 GB = 3 hrs for me)
  2. Extract the folders and files from the downloaded zip file
  3. Copy them to a USB flash drive
  4. Insert flash drive into front USB port of the 730N RHR
  5. Allow the installation to run (it takes about 30 minutes)
  6. Enjoy better track art.






Thanks to Sox for sharing the update, I'm sure Chrysler/Jeep will be notifying me soon to let me know an update is available. Wait, I just received an email, nope not from Chrysler, but it looks important, a request for help to launder money from a Nigerian functionary...

Re: RHR Gracenotes Update (Sox comes through again!)

Quick question...

Do we just put the "GNDB.zip" on a USB drive or is there another step I'm missing?

Thanks

Re: RHR Gracenotes Update (Sox comes through again!)

Tip from the School of Hard Knocks: Don't let your radio turn off for even a second during the install. I'd originally used ACCY, then decided this might switch off automatically during the install so I turned on the engine. This turned off the RHR for a second or so.

Bad move. It had already deleted the existing Gracenote, and now has nothing to update. So no Gracenote. At all.

Eventually I'll have to figure out how to install the original Gracenote, then try again.

UPDATE: After many more tries, got a message, "Invalid USB Device Detected." So apparently after this screwup it's expecting only, say, A/V files, not a program update. Maybe using a DVD will resolve this, but in principle if it won't read the Gracenote program files on USB anymore, it shouldn't have better results with a DVD.

Re: RHR Gracenotes Update (Sox comes through again!)

Help please, got updating error message. Here is what I did. Unzipped GN 4118 RHR US folder. Copied GNDB folder and GNUPDATE file to an empty USB. Placed USB in 730N and it recognized it. Answered YES and update began. About half way through update the USB stopped flashing and I got a message something like "Serious Error" and it stopped updating. Now all my album art is the "My Connect" logo. I tried again and it asked if I wanted to update N/A Error to N/A 4118 and I said yes and encountered the error message again. Under System Information the Gracenotes number now shows "N/A (..." It use to show number 2311. Any ideas to correct the problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Larry

Update: The USB I was using was the same USB that worked okay with update 2.120, but I got an error message the three times I tried to update to Gracenote 4118. So I copied the GNDB folder and GNUPDAE file to another blank USB that was exactly the same model as the first USB that gave the error message. The second USB loaded the Gracenote update 4118 perfectly. Thanks Sox and Corp Cog for the update information.

I get the same SysInfo message for Gracenote. Too, don't believe the message when first doing the install that if the radio goes off during install, the install will resume next time the radio is turned on.

Believe that, and I have a bridge to sell you. Anyhow, it seems that a way needs to be found to install the earlier Gracenote. I have a funny feeling that comes bundled with the firmware, 2.120 in our case.

no problem larry.

have you the 2.120 application on the RHR?

the best way are downloading new and extract the file and install again.

N/A are only the message for a cancel gracenotes datafile, when you make a sucessfull install from the 4118, its show the rigth and working normaly

no you must extract the zip and then only the folder GNDB and the gnupdate file to a FAT32 formatted USB stick.

Good luck, Larry. I did this and the USB drive wasn't accepting.
