Default updated blue and me 5.4

Blue and me updated : version 5.4 with sony ericsson patch

Downlaoded all the updates and sony ericsson patch and updated asper the instruction given in pdf given by sunilrj.
only thing is that i did not have to switch on the radio as per the pdf instruction . the updated started as soon as the key was turned to MAR and completed when it saud " update completed. The USB drive can be removed now"".

After that i tried connecting my phone and it got paired once and disconnected a few tomes as reported by manual for searching the right com pot and finally connected again. Now works as usual.
I dont find any difference now, although i have not streamed songs from USB.
Will do that tonight and keep you guys updated.

Planning to go for change of alloys mostly tomorrow.........wifey credit card ready.

Vahan i give a clean chit for the update. you can go ahead

Ashwin, are you visiting the TASS today for alloy change ?
Its raining and the entire area around the TASS is slushy.

Pls ensure you are around when the wheel is changed.

Dinitrol Antirust periodic checkup is due every three months. Your's should be due by now. Pls get it checked as monsoon has started and anyways, you are in TASS today.

Pls also, speak to Sairaj on the delay in spares, esp in my case where the LINEA EMOTION name stickers are delayed for over a month and the seat best casing is delayed for almost 20 days now. Ask him how come the same (seat belt assembly) was available in a weeks time at VST.

Will call you later in the day, thanks.

If your mobile is not working properly as per the PDF.
Try with version 5.4 or Don't do any updates.
for me,My HTC Touch phone is working as par with Mobile Functions PDF.
Mobile Functions : Telefoni Compatibili
Version 5.4 Update : Fiat / Blue&Me

Thanks. I think I'll try it as some of the functions are not working with my phone, curious if they work with this update.

Also, pls let me know on below:
  • In your USB stick, did you copy all those files in the zip file to root section of the USB stick or you created a folder & saved all files in that folder?
  • Did you copy 1 single Zip file or all those 4-5 files (inside the zip files) on USB stick?
  • I think USB stick needs to be formatted (FAT32 system) and must not have any other file in it except this software. is this right?

Amit

Here is the procedure to do it.

1. Create a new folder in C:\ with the name "Blue & ME" and Unzip all files from the zip file to this folder.

2. Now format the USB stick with FAT 32 by right clicking in my computer.

3. Copy all 6 files from C:\Blue & ME folder to root (no folder) of this USB stick.

You are ready with the USB stick just insert it in the USB port of Linea and move the ignition key from STOP to MAR.

It seems this update has more compatibility with other mobiles.
it can play apple ipod and iphone music by streaming if you get a adapter ( look for the adapter in sunil rj thread)
After updating i find the connection to be more clear and stable. Havent checked the message reader as though .

It ( adapter) costs 89 euros officially. but i know a guy called chris@souls at fiat forum who is willing to give the adapter for 65 euros if we can order 7 pieces at once. anyone interested?

no extract the zipfile to a folder in your desktop using winrar/winzip . you will get a folder with 6 files in it

just copy those files to the usb stick. do not copy the files with the folder. And one more warning is that dont ever plug out the usb stick before it says update complete. if you plug it out the whole blue and me will be corrupted

after updating the blue and me format the stick and the do the same with sony erricsson patch.

just copy the files alone and not the files with the folder.

one more thing before doing pray to god!!


Binze. i did not go today as my work was very hectic. dont think i can go for the next 5 days either as my father is leaving for swiss today and i have to see off his commitments for the whole week. will talk to you tomorrow. and it is raining too. you already know that i dont take my car out in the rain


Hey guys one more update.
surprise surprise surprise!!
i heard from the top brass that fiat is launching ecodrive for linea in october

just a doubt.
does your media player stop when you switch off from MAR to STOP?. The radio i have set it to 20 mins from menu so it plays even if i switch off the car. but when i hear songs from usb when i switch off to stop the media player too stops

is it the same in your car too?

Aswin,

Are you able to hear any noise while whipping?
I am getting a screeching noise while doing so.I checked some other linea too.
It also has the same issue.Don't know whether it's a problem with every car produced or unique to some cars i have seen.

Ashwin, Karthik,
1. Yes; the wiper on the driver side wobbles (lower end) when in use.
2. The screeching sound is there in all cars. Infact i chaged my wiper due to this and still i find this. I have checked with couple of other cars as well. The sound exists.

I think, when wind shield and wiper blades or too dry, it make this screeching sound and in most of the car I have driven.

I have a different problem with my Linea wipers. The drivers side wipes beautifully, the passengers side does not wipe too well. Anone have suggestions? There is no screeching though

Last Sunday at Shell petrol pump Mysore, the person was cleaning my windshield and suddenly the driver side wiper rubber came off the wiper. He took it out and cleaned it and put it back, very easily and its locked again.
Not sure how it came out, Later on my way from Mysore to B'lore, it was raining heavily and I was worried that it might come out but wiper worked perfectly without any issues.
