very usufull info you have! i’m glad i find ur site.
i’m looking if i can find a manual or a schematic for the bose ampli on my Q7; damaged by water leacking from sunroof.. i did not knew untill it blow.
i read all the info you put. from where i can get the 3 CD mentionned in updating the MMI?
My Q7 is 2007 model, now untill i fix or buy new bose audio i cannot access the MMI to check my MMI version.
You can buy those CDs from your Audi dealer. It shouldn’t be expensive. You can find part no. in the article. Before buying confirm with your Audi dealer that those CDs will work on your car for sure.
When i press car and then setup it shows me no further settings available for the car menu :(
What can I do to verify my version ?
You can enter hidden red menu (press and hold both SETUP and RETURN buttons), then go to Interfacebox → SW-index.
First hit setup and then car. Otherwise it wont work
How do u enable the parking signstuff after update?
HI Great instructions
I have A6 2008 V8 with 2G high MMI, Nav, Bluetooth, rear view camera, CD changer and AMI. The problem is that my CD changer is not working anymore so I am not able to use the CDs for upgrade. I do have VSDC software and ODB2 cable.
Is it possible to do the upgrade using ODB2 or through connecting a USB flash to the AMI
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi. In my knowledge there are two ways to update MMI.
Eighter by using disk and CD changer or with Audi diagnostic tool (VAS).
OBD2 cable just with VCDS or VAG-COM will not let you update the MMI system. Sorry.
Where could I get the mmi update CD for my 06 a6? is it expensive?
You can buy update CDs from your Audi dealer.
Hey i have a 2005 a6 4.2 my current software is 1070 what are my steps to upgrade to 5570 ? also i wanna configure
My aux input my car has factory bose with out the back up camera how much do the update cds cost
With software versions as low as 1070 you need to use all 3 CDs from this tutorial.
where can I buy/download language packs? czech for example
For Audi MMI 2G there are no official language packs. Try your local Audi forum for advice and remember that installing aftermarket software modification will terminate your warranty.
Hi, I have a Q3 2014 model…It has a NAV button on the MMI but it says it is disabled.
Can I upgrade the software to include GPS??
if you don’t have GPS it’s most likely not a matter of software update. You need hardware as well: GPS antenna, DVD drive for maps (of HDD inside MMI)…
Great guide thank you. However a faced an issue. Could you explain me what else I can try. I got the factory upgrade Cd’s and I have 2G MMI low( with the red screen)
When I insert the first cd after a couple of minutes my car saysERROR “no dada cd in drive”
I tried with all slots and cleaned the whole cd charger but the same issue all the time.
Local Audi dealer charge £189+VAT so I do not really want do it with theme.
Thank your answer
Is your update CD set designed for low/basic version? Because High and Low/Basic MMI 2G systems are completely different.
Hey aften update My radio can’t play??
Component Protection (CP) might turn itself or something gone wrong while updating radio receiver. Best if you check with diagnostic interface.
Yes it is for Low Basic. It written on the Cd cover.
Try those CDs in your PC to check if your computer can read them without problem.
Then empty the CD changer, place CD1 in slot 1, restart the MMI using three button combination (it’s here on the blog), when it start press and hold SETUP and RETURN, select SWUpdate and check if the CD will work.
If not you should get a refund from whoever sold you those CDs.
Your comment…My MMI screen is off. U press the MMI on/off button, the MMI screen saver comes on for a few seconds & it goes off.
I had parked in the sun for a day(in Ghana). Could that be the reason? What can I do?
This might me a overheat problem or one of the MOST components is not working (amplifier, navigation, SDS, CD changer, tuner…). Check all fuses, then try scanning the car with diagnostic interface.
I accidentally clicked on the bootloader button in the green menu. Can you please help me exit?
You need to insert update CD so the bootloader can be stored in the MMI.
Just bought an Audi A5 2008 , when I checked version it said SW 0130 , is this the basic version as I cannot even alter suspension ( hard ride , its a Quattro , sport) and how can I upgrade it , is it a case of purchasing the cd’s from audi ??
2008 Audi A5 will most likely have a 3G system. This tutorial is about 2G system.
Hello. Very useful information, thanks! I have one question. I have Audi A8 D3(2003). When I update it with last version for 5570 something wrong. Because when everything is done my software is updated to 5150 not to 5570. Why is this problem? Maybe don’t have some modules for 5570? Thanks!
MMI 2G head unit alone should be updated to 5570. Please verify if your update CD data is not corrupt.
hi , am have 3 cd original , update sw first cd 350 to 390 , how to update last new version ??? thanks ;
Is this also for AUDI A1 with MMI, and can i put the update a SD CARD?
the software version i have now is RMC_EU_K11240
Start screen logo is the same for all Audi audio systems which is confusing.
For sure you don’t have MMI 2G system which was available only in A4, A5, A6, A8 and Q7.
Most likely you don’t have MMI 3G system but RMC system (Radio Media Center).
I updated bc i accidently pressed the bootloader button, but now i have no steering-wheel commands, no display for parktronic (just sond) , and many others menus from “CAR” are not there anymore. all the settings are just the same as before the update, but now i have no acces to change them. PLS HELP. how do i get them back?. A6 4F 2008, MMI 2G High
You need to access hidden green menu and enable all missing features according to your cars equipment. Please check hidden green menu description for MMI 2G.
I have same problem. How did solved it? With little details, please.
I updated the first CD with no problems. When I try to update with cd2 (BT device) I get the message that no device selected for update. What I understand the Handyvorb2 is the BT device but I can’t check any of the boxes (bootloader or application). What am I missing? I have MMI 2G Hi, with telephone connection in the car witch I think means that I have BT?
If CD2 does not indicate any pending updates then skip to CD3. Apparently not all BT modules needed CD2 update.
Can I update from 1190 straight to 5150 or should I do another version first. I have a 2006 Audi A8
I have a 2007 Q7 4.2l with MMI 2G 2740, I burned both ISOs on speed 10x, new laptops don’t have a lower speed, we tried the first CD the S/W update didn’t recognise the software, all devices said N/A, i burned a couple of CDs more same thing, then i tried to run the second CD immediately, and the devices recognised the CD, i started the download and everything completed except for the siruis, once i rebooted MMI worked fine, but some menu options did not view such as the battery indicator level, and most important Bluetooth did not work, i tried to downgrade to CD1 still same problem could not do anything, is there any solution to downgrade again to 2740 again and then re-upgrade maybe get the bluetooth working.
By the way I downloaded the cd’s from this site: a6retrofit.com
Please if there is any help
Sometimes during the update (specially from old versions) coding and adaptation values go back to default. That’s why some options are missing, BT does not work…
All you need to do is enter hidden green menu and enable those features according to your cars optional equipment.
I tried several times to enter the hidden green menu, but I couldn’t,
I followed the steps you mentioned in this site, but I fail to enter.
Everytime I try to enter hidden green menu I get this message:
There is no more available settings.
In red screen
I have 07 Audi Q7. the software version is 2740. The car has no NAV, rear camera, Bluetooth or hands-free feature. in my case, Is there a benefit from updating or not?
If you don’t experience any issues with the system (lags or glitches) I don’t recommend performing this procedure. It will bring no new features.
Hi I’ve got a Q7 2006 AVUS with rear camera, and BT. My phone reach to connect the MMI but when I stop the car it loose the connection. I’ve tried to update the bluetooth module but it seems to do nothing. I see only “Restarting the device…” again and again. It also show 0 N.D the 1 N.D … but nothing seems to work. I’ve waited 1h at least. I’ve updated nav and mmi to 5570 without any problems and my DVD are brand new factory one’s.
Any idea that could help ?
If you loose BT connection when turning off the car, you should visit electric workshop and check if BT module is powered correctly.
Hi, how do I know if I have the high or low 2g MMI?
MMI 2G low (basic) uses monochromatic red screen.
MMI 2G high uses full-color 16:9 7” screen.
Hi. I have run the 3CDs fine – and the update looks to have worked properly, but I cannot find the 3D maps on the sat nav. (I’ve got an Audi A6 Avant, 2006, with 2015 maps). What have I done wrong?
Go to Navigation, press SETUP button and look for 3D/bird view.
Hi. I have update the MMI, but now when i turn of the MMI appears the MMI welcome screen . It is all right ???. When i have the old software the MMI turn off for real…. !!! Can you tell me if i have to change something from Settings ?
If you turn it off by press and hold of the volume knob, then yes – MMI logo should stay on the screen with small clock on the bottom.
If you want to turn the display off, use button on the dashboard.
My 2002 A8 currently does not have blue tooth functionality, will updating the software remedy that?
If you want bluetooth in your car you need to retrofit BT module, microphones and code it.
Updates with success! But not without turning the engine on.
I would like to post how this worked for me:
– If your MMI does turn on after clicking the On/Off button, and immedietly after the Audi logo back off, don’t worry. Without the engine running, but power on this never worked for me.
– Start the engine, keep it running for as long the 3CD updates takes
– Go to the SW Update menu as in the tutorial
– Put in CD1 (~25 min)
-> Everything needed is auto selected, so you can just proceed the update
– Put in CD2 (~2 min)
-> if you have no bluetooth you will see nothing is selected for this CD.
– Put in CD3 (~10 min)
-> Everything needed is auto selected, so you can just proceed the update
Hello,how can i open hidden green menu without conection to pc.
Sorry but you need diagnostic interface to enable hidden menu.
I paid a guy with full vcds £20 to enable mine, whereabouts are you?
I have an Audi A6 (2006). I updated MMI to version 5570 a while ago and all worked well. I had AMI retrofitted recently. I do not know which version AMI the software is. I have an iPod touch (5th gen) and attach it using an Audi 30 pin cable (4F0051510AG) and an Apple lightning adapter.
When I try to use the iPod through AMI, it is hit-and-miss as to what happens. Sometimes it is fine and plays without any problems while sometimes it says the device does not have any playable tracks, or it might show some tracks but then freeze when I try to play them.
Please can you help!
Do I need to run the MMI update again / update AMI / or use a different cable??
Many thanks for your help.
run the 5570 update again. You AMI module can have older software that’s not fully supported by the latest MMI head unit software.
I have had problems using a Bluetooth Viseeo WMA 1000 device plugged into AMI to play Apple Music from my iphone. I have had hit and miss playback and the “no playable tracks folder” on and off for a long time. I have software 4420 on my MMI. Have you solved your problems? mr -fix.info says run the update again but surely you would need the cd changer and ami connected to update it. Is that your set up?
I look forward to your reply
My car is audi a8 d3 2003 with mmi version 0770 . All i want is to enable audi optical parking .I have changed the parking module to version D which support optical display and coded the module to 02xxxxx but still no optical display when i put in reverse just acoustic. I dont want to update the mmi to 5150 as worry that it will damage the mmi. Is there any other way to enable the optical display Thanks
you need to code both parking module and MMI module to support this feature.
Please tell me how to code the mmi and the coding value
My A8 mmi version is 0770 can i use the 3 cds to upgrade to 5570 directly to 5570. Will this update damage the mmi componet
Use all 3 CDs. First one will update your MMI to 5150, second is for handsfree system, third will update it to 5570.
Hi I have the second cd don’t seem to be working even tho I have Bluetooth
Maybe your bluetooth module does not require CD2 to be installed. Go to CD3.
hi i cant open my green hiden menu why is not working audi a8 2006
Please read this: ENABLE MMI HIDDEN GREEN MENU (2G, 3G, 3G+)
Please tell me how to code the mmi 2g of audi a8 d3 to support optical parking display as i have already recode the parking module
I need to update my MMI software for audi A6 and also update the navigation.
How can I do this? I cant even get green menu either.
I downloaded some program onto a CD but when I went to start download in the red menu I didnt start.
I cant change anything in the red menu – it all seems dead.
what can I do please?
Don’t use downloaded software/firmware as it can damage your car.
Just bought an used 2007 Q7 with no Bluetooth, back camera, or navigation! Is there any hope of me getting these features? When you press knobs ( tele, nav…) it says not installed! Please can I add an aftermarket radio with these features and if so what kind? I’m a female in Chicago and I don’t want to be taken advantage of or damage my vehicle.
Thanks in advance
Everything can be added. Please google for “Audi MMI 2G bluetooth retrofit” and so on…
Are you sure that you have no navigation? You don’t have DVD drive under the trunk floor for the map disk?
Can i update my audi a8 d3 from version 0770 directly to 5570 using the 3 CDs 4L0998961without any intermediate update
use CD1 to go from 0770 to 5150, then CD2, then CD3 to go from 5150 to 5570.
Good morning. I purchased an Audi A6 quattro le man’s 3.0 diesel. I also have the update cd’s. The mmi version was way below 5.0 and so tried to load cd1. Followed instructions but no update after an hour so gave up! Is there any way of knowing whether the cd is actually uploading I. E any indication on screen?
Did you perform all steps from the tutorial? Empty the CD changer, put the update CD in slot 1, enter update menu with CAR and RETURN buttons?
Thanks for the speedy reply. Yes I had my phone with your tutorial in the car with me and was frightened to get out in case any electrical interference! It may be my slot 1 cd as I have the owner manual cd and a couple of times it says no cd inserted when it had been. Having said that when I went through the tutorial it recognised the cd rom and got to the point where display said software update do not use electric stuff (or words to that effect).
Hi i have successfully update my mmi from 0770 to 5570. But i have a fault code on the sound module 02084 component protection no or incorrect basic setting/adaptation static. The amp work perfect so i don’t know what the code is . I ve tried to clear the code but can not.Please advice
Hi! While updating MMI and other components (amp, nav box, cd changer, tuner…) some of the devices might loose coding and adaptation values. Please check all components if coding is correct and it fit your car equipment.
You can quick look for a 0000000 coding. If you can find empty coding, then try you have to analyze all modules.
Hello, I have 2005 A6 3.2 will update for MMI allow my to use my phone as Audio out Via BT?

Hello I have Audi Q7, have a problem when comes to CD2 and try to start download for the 2nd time it states “no device is selected for updating” .
I have carried on to disc 3 but my initial problem with telephone function not working is not fixed.
Maybe your phone module is broken/disconnected so it does not work and can not be updated.
I have q7 2007 bat the B.T is not working wat i shoold do?
and if its posibol to apgrad the versun?
and how can i do it?
Thank in advans
Are you sure that you have bluetooth in your car? This is an optional equipment – not all Q7 have bluetooth.
My 2003 Audi parts A8 D3 has factory fitted bluetooth phone and phone cradle.I tried to connect my smart phone to the car telephone module using bluetooth but can’t pair.Also i use cd2 of 4L0998961to update the bluetooth but there is no update
CD2 is not always needed when updating MMI system. Even if bluetooth is installed.
I dont know if i have..but im sure that i have the microphon and the optional telphon ander the right hand …
So wen presing the telphon nuten its show no thelphon instold..
You can please tall me wer the bluetooth module is located in my car q7 2007 BUG 3.otdi quattro .and if ican upgrede the vesion i had 34.5.0
I keep getting error on Epatch.bin 176 error. tried it all different ways. any suggestions. dension 500 is in service mode too :(
Check if your update CDs are not scratched.
I updated my audi a6 2006, but i used the 2nd cd only one time, now bluetooth aint working anymore, i tried to repeat the update again, but now even with cd 1 the update doesnt start. i tried by removing the battery for 15 mins but still same, any suggestion? Thanks!
I have a version 4140. 0709 , to what version I can upgrade , I’m leaving in US and how many CD’S I have to use?
After updating is it possible to have suspension issues? Also what can happen if the car was driven while being updated?
if you update while driving you’re risking the CD to skip track and bricking your MMI.
Hi I have a Japanese import audi a4 2008 with MMi High, can I still update using these disks?
It’s best if you recode your car to the correct region.
My Navigation DVD is failing intermittenty. (wont display map). Looks like failing laser.
I bought a second hand replacement but it fails to initialise. It is not component protected.
If it came from a car with newer software than mine (4220) would that prevent it from working?
On each map DVD there’s a software included needed for maps to work. If the drive and discs are both OK, then it should just work.
Where are the download links?
i can’t find anymore.
You should buy original CDs at dealers. It cost like 10$ and you don’t need to worry about improperly burned CDs that will damage your MMI.
Hello, i’m stuck informação cd2 for more transferência 2 hours.
It says initializing pheripheral and then for a second in contact With pheripheral.
Is this normal?
I have inserted the first cd and have Bootloader (234>240) and Application (2120>5151) ticked…how can I tell if the update is actually happening?
Scroll down to “Start download” and press it.
Good evening mr-info, Nice tutorial.
I have a problem instaling from 5150 to 5570. Bought the originals cd’s for updates. from CD 1 i’m getting error 176, from CD 3 i’m getting error 195. A lot of searching in internet found something out “zug”, maybe you an idea what to do, if i will go to local audi dealer i know it will cost a lot. interface box sw number 4f0910732s, index 5150, hw number 4e0035729, index h43. i’m out of ideas. Maybe you have some suggestions. Thank you.
When updating my A8 MMI HIGH gen 2 to 5570 I get the following message: “Audi mmi, following device is not in download mode: AMI”. And the AMI is not updated neither when using disc 1 nor disc 3. Everything else seems to be upgraded and to be working just fine. Tried to unplug the “AMI-cable” but that didn’t help.
I’m not sure if remember correctly, but alternatively you can update AMI with Usb drive connected as AMI source.
MMI does not load after using CD2. The CD was ran twice. First it updated “OK” ran a second time there was an “S”. After updating and restarting MMI it failed to turn back on completely dead. (VCDS Address 07: Control Head
Cannot be reached)
Firstly great work!
I have a 2009 Q7 (USA) that i recently updated the nav disc. Now the navigation seems to drop from maps to the destination (where you enter the destination) screen on its own. Any idea what might be causing that?
Check for stuck buttons.
Hi! Excellent info here.
Could you please help we? I have a 2005 Audi A6 SW: HU C6-6350 11.1.0 0442 but I cannot access the secret green menu. It says no more options. On the red menu on the SW- index: 1110 cannot edit info either. Want to change the screen logo and to erase the service warning beep. Thank you.
First update to 5570, then enable green menu, then change welcome screen.
I bought an A5 from the US market and the maps , software is from that country.
Can I change the software to the ureopean version by myself?
wich type of procedure I have to do?
You need to get update CDs for Europe (or whatever region you want to use), recode and update the software.
I’ve got a Audi A5 07, I’ve entered the 1disc of 3 and and done it all, at the end it says go the restart mmi, I’ve done this then my screen went blank and never come back on?? Now none of the mmi lights and up buttons or the screen?
Hi, I have a 2008 A4 Avant with MMI 2G. Hidden menu doesn’t appear after pushing Setup and Car (I pushed Setup first, then Car).
Any chance that an update to version 5570 (current version is 5140) will make the menu available or won’t that make any difference. If so, what can I do to use the hidden menu?
My car is a A6 AVANT 3.2FSI QUATTRO with MMI 2G. In MMI the SW number is C6-HU 6362 07.4.0 0444, which is a strange software version number when comparing with what other audi owners post on the web. I’m wondering if it is a different software version regime because of its Japanese origination or language pack.
I want to upgrade my MMI system using the MMI 2G software update to version 5570 via the red screen and loading the cd’s one by one (3 in total). I’m hoping this will overwrite the japanese language pack currently loaded onto my MMI system. Do I load the Euro version or is their an Aus NZ version I should be looking for?
Yes yours is different as is Japanese. It will be older 2005 software release.
You can upgrade using the euro cds but you will lose ur radio and require a European K box replacement ($149 off ebay)
Hi guys, how its possible that i cannot access the red menu to pick swupdate option? any ideas? i try all combinations but no success :(:(
Red menu can not be locked. You should be able to access it as long as you have MMI 2G system, using correct buttons in correct order.
Did you find a solution? I cannot get the hidden red menu to come up either.
Hi, i have an AUDI Q3 My 2012 European model without navigator (only 1 SD slot), my MMI software is: RMC EU P11474, if i upgrade to the latest versione 5570 i will have in the green menù the “CAR” function and i will can activate the battery level ?
I have the software VCDS ver. 15.7
You don’t have MMI. You have RMC.
5570 update was for MMI 2G, which was never installed in Q3.
hi, i have tried updating my mmi 2g high and cd1 went successful, i then put in cd2 which came up with a fail and asked if i wanted to retry,i clicked on retry and it just froze, left it for hours and nothing happened,even taking key out it stayed on, in the end i had to disconnect battery, now the mmi boots up but radio etc works then goes off for a second etc, whenever i try to do anything it just keeps jumping,it doesn’t display anything anymore for heated seats a/c,parking etc, and if i try the update again it just stays on reading meta data information and does not change, please help
Where did you get update discs from?
I have try to make the update to the A6 of my father, CD1 seem to go well, but after the reboot, I cannot access to the update menu anymore (setup-return)!
Do you have any idea?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Where did you get update discs from?
U need to read enable green screen menu using a vag com tool.
Great advice so far!
Installed CD2 and it took approx 6mins and restarted the MMI automatically. Then installed CD2 again to make the Bluetooth work (Bluetooth worked with iPhone before this update) and the install seems to be taking a long time (over an hour) is that normal?
Hi, I have SW: B8-HU 51.7.0 0741
Do i need the update ‘4L0-998-961 5570’
or i already have it installed
You don’t need, but you can install 5570.
The only new firmware versions on the European 5570 update CD are for the following MMI components:
B & O amplifier – new version is 320
Tuner – new version is 630
HybridTV – new version is 470
MMI [aka Control Head] – new version is 5570
I try to update but get error metaininfo.txt in line 2269, try with cd version 3360 and get no disk loaded.
I have this:
Amp. Basis 0320
Which car? Which year? What SW version?
I have the same problem. The car is A6 C6 2005. What to do?
I have audi Q5 2014…and how I now what upgrade I can make on it?
I have DVD and two SD slots but I can listen music if I have navigator on. :(
Is it possible to run navigator from SD slot and music listen from DVD?
You don’t have MMI 2G in your car.
will the same software for USA work for 2G Low and High or are there different software for each?
Hi, I got a 2007 Q7 without BT and Nav. The sw version it’s 28.6.0 can I update to this version if it’s got a Bose sound system ? How can I add BT to it? Thanks
Yes you can update. Use CD1, then CD3.
You can retrofit bluetooth to this car. You’ll need BT module, microphone, some wiring (if your car is missing it) and diagnostic interface to code it.
Hi, i have a 08 q7 ,I have following to update mmi from 5150 to 5570 with the 3rd Cd, but it keeps opening file to unlock a lot of files over 24 hrs still not yet finish the update, what’s wrong I missed, I am dare to stop it , but I don,t know how long I need to wait and I wanted to know how many files need to open? Old help
There’s something wrong with your update CD. This should not take more than an hour.
I think updating my software on my 2007 Audi C6 Avant and enabling battery monitor has caused a problem where the car now does not go into standby and or shut down electrical components which is causing my battery to slowly drain overnight causing a low battery warning every morning and no exterior and interior lights on dark mornings. Can anyone help with how to fix this, I am thinking it will need to be rolled back! Is this possible?
Great site. Just bought Audi A6 2007 which has MMI 2G High and which is running version 4220. There is no Bluetooth. I am considering having the Fiscon BT kit fitted. What is the best order? Fit Fiscon then do software update? Or update to 5150, then fit Fiscon, then do BT update on CD2 and finally CD3? Is there a risk that updates could cause Fiscon to fall over?
CD2 updates only original devices so you don’t even have to try running it.
First do full update to 5570, then connect whatever you want.
For me it says that “Metainfo cannot be annalysed” when i do put 1st or any of those three discs. Ive been downloading those files from [CUT] this link. and the car ive got is audi a6 2005 with MMI 2g high. this is the picture of system info http://imgur.com/a/YnHsE . Any advice? thx
Most likely disk image is damaged/fake or CD is burned incorrectly. I do not recommend using self-burned update disk. THere’s a risk of bricking your MMI.
can please someone confirm in fact the latest version is 4610 for USA MMI 2G?
I have a 2007 A6 2.0tdi with what I believe is 2g MMI High, I went through all the disks fine but when finished I had no BT ( says phone not installed when pushing tel button ) …when trying to run disk 2 again, it says “n/a” against all the modules and it will not progress with the update again……any ideas please?

i have the software version 4220

SW 28.6.0, when I try to update it tells me “cd cannot be read” !!!
Hi have genuine disks and a 2007 A5.
Disc 2 lists 1 update for Bta but won’t start.
Just says ‘initialise the device’
I definitely have bluetooth in car.
i bought copies of these CD that seem to work ( reading comments )
but the update with the first CD didn’t finish…
so i cancelled the update and after , no sound.
The sound is muted , and i cant listen any sound now.
with vcds , the MOST diag says that the sonorisation is KO for electrical and optical loop.
i tried to make another update , but the CD player can’t now read it , he blocks at the step “reading meta informations…” and don’t go the next step.
So , i would like to know if i switch the CD player , it will be possible to launch another update or the AMP is broken ?
Worked like a dream
Thanks a lot

I have been following your instructions to try to update my 2008 A6 version 51.4.0.0731 to version 5570 but I am stuck. I cannot get the hidden red menu to appear when I press and hold buttons SETUP and RETURN. Do you have any suggestions?
I’m not sure wich sw number is correct in my A6 C6 2005. It says SW: C6-HU 6350 12.0.0 0513. Wich number is it? Is it 6350 or 12.0.0, and is it possible to upgrade from 1200 directly to latest version?
The car has 2g hi mmi, Bluetooth, navigation, and so far everything works fine.
Thank you for the tutorial!
I tried to buy the CDs indicated but the seller said it would not work for my car (that it is too old).
I have an Audi A8 2005-2006, the software version is 11.1.0, would these CDs work or not?
Also, I have an integrated phone (Nokia style), does that means that I have Bluetooth and I could regain functionality for others phones with the update?
Thank you in advance.
I have some extra MMI 2G update cds lying around. I have already updated my Q7 successfully with them. Feel free to contact me in case you need them. All are tried, and tested CDs.
My US 07 Audi Q7 with SW: AU-HU 46.1.0 0805. I ordered 4F0 998 961 which only comes with 2 CDs (CD1 and CD2) from Audi Parts Dealer. This instruction mentions in subtitle:
MMI 2G software update version EU 5150 / USA 3360 / Russia 5540 – procedure for CD1
MMI 2G software update version EU 5570 / US 4610 / Russia 6030 for CD3
Does it mean, I have US 4610 already, so I only need to run CD3 ?
I have Audi A6 2008, There is no Bluetooth and Telephone not installed. If I update to mmi is its works bt.
Hi, I get “error 129 from device” after disc one and now it also says “radio not installed” if I try to use my radio as normal!
Official discs used
Have you solved this ? i have the same issue.
I tried doing this, but the install was interrupted.
I have a 2008 2G MMI. The update seemed to start fine, and then got hung up at 6%. I guess it probably wasn’t “hung up” as you said the update can take a few hours. As I was sitting in my car during the update, I got a call that went to blue tooth. After the 5 minute call, I turned the car off without thinking.
Now the lights on the nav unit flash red, the MMI says “navigation not installed”. When I go into VAGCOM says “controller not found” in the 37-navigation selection.
What do I do to have the nav unit recognized again?
(Thanks for the great website!)
All sorted. I disconnected the nav unit, then reconnected. Inserted original DVD and the display said “initializing.” Nav is fully functional again!
My version appears to be 5071. So, I can get the update discs from the dealer and do the update myself? My bluetooth can be a bit flaky, so I’m hoping it will fix that.
Audi a6 mmi 2g version 3460 (if necessary update ver 4220 frst or direct 5570!!! Thanks
Any hint´s to as where U can download the CD´s?
Seems vaglife.dk isn´t working anymore
Firstly, thank you for this guide – it has been very helpful.
I have an MMI problem, and wonder, if by chance, you might know the answer? The rear wash/wipe pipe leaked, and leaked water on the media stack. This affected the smooth running of the MMI system, and also caused the car to not shut down properly, which caused a battery drain, as the car was never fully shutting down.
An auto-electrician has first changed the amp, and then the radio tuner. This has helped, but not cured the problem, in that instead of the car never shutting down at all, it now shuts down after 2 hours. So, at least the car still starts after sitting for 2-3 days parked.
Would you be expert enough to help diagnose (with additional information) why the car is still taking 2 hours to shut down? I have VCDS, and now that the new amp and tuner are in, VCDS reports zero faults at all – so I’ve got nowhere to start looking!
I’ve followed the upgrade instructions above, with the gen Audi disks, and the MMI is now running 5570 software.
What I did find earlier today, whilst looking through the secret red menu, is that when you click on either the Amp or the radio tuner, or the MMI option within the main red menu, and then click on (iirc) ILC in the top left corner, and start looking through the log files, I can see that there are many hundreds of log files under each component of the system – most of them are very recent (from today in the last few days and weeks) – 256 log files in most components and 1,000 log files within the tuner – I had wondered if these needed clearing or anything like that for example? I don’t know where to go next!

Hi Mr Fix, I’ve upgraded from 3450 to 5570 ok, but all displays appear to be the same, and there’s no track info on cds when playing, just track 01, 02 at. Any ideas.
Just a quick question that wasn’t answered yet.
If I don’t have a battery charger can I have my car running in P and update software?
Or it’s not recommended and can damage MMI?
I’m in Japan with a 2007 Q7 MMI 2G high & would like to upgrade with the 5570 cds, which I got from a friend in the UK, but do you think this would be ok? He says he used them to upgrade on a car with the same software version as mine (14.7.0), but wondering what trouble I might run into by doing this? Will I lose my radio function? Sorry to bother you but if you could help me since I can’t seem to get a decent answer from a Japan dealer, I would greatly appreciate your help!
Thank you in advance
i cant find any reasonable suggestion or solution. First i cant find digital speedometer, yes i have tried from right side joystick under the steering wheel. Once went to Audi center and asked and they said maybe its not installed in software from begining. Then one mechanic said that in this model, there isn’t any digital speedometer.
the second problem i have had that small display in middle (where it suppose to show digital speedometer) don’t work unless i drive for few hours, and then rear and front sensors don’t work, well it use to work after driving for while but now censors don’t work at all. i have checked the censors and they all are working (hearing closely if they clicking).
would appreciate your suggestion.
can I update my MMI Version c6-hu 03.6.0 0336 directly to 5150 and then to 5570, or do I need to update first an older version?
I was woundering the samething, im on C6StdPlus_0410
Tried CD1 number of times.
One update only, but update unsuccessful: AMI not in download mode.
Any help please.
During CD1 update (only AMI available) got a message: AMI not in download mode.
Got the OEM CD’s, 0, 1, 2, 3.
With CD 0, the MMI keeps saying “reading meta information”. Left it for about 2 hours, no result.
It isn’t locked up or anything, I can cancel using the return button no problem. Is it supposed to take that long?
Do I have to use CD2 again after using CD3? For now my software is 3460, so if I get it right, I have to update first to 5150 with CD1, the update with CD2 TWICE (because of bluetooth module), and then update with CD3 from 5150 to 5570? Or do I need use CD2 TWICE again? Thanks.
I have an Audi Q7 2009, the sat nav, music, parking assist, electric mirrors not working, my garage advised me to change the MMI, this was changed, MMI 2G, but this time it comes on and goes off again. please help.
Hello my friend, can these discs help me get out from bootloader screen?? My mmi 2g high now is in bootloader mode, can i get out from there whit these update disks?
Works for Audi Navigation Plus? I have an Audi A4 B7 2007.
Worked well. Didn’t take too long. Did it without engine running and without battery on charge (new-ish battery in car though). No idea what’s changed but all updated with no problems except a CRC error at the end of disc 3, which a retry fixed.
Didn’t allow the Tune2Air or other Bluetooth AMI connections to work still though (my reason for the upgrade as had been told it needs the latest software) but that’s another issue entirely.
