Well, I spent another 5$ on the VTurbo this weekend.. Yep, 5 WHOLE bucks..

on the Dezoris 1.5.5 ELA USB Interface. What it does is unlock test mode (which is locked on May 2012+ builds) preventing you from using any of the LG codes. For example, I unlocked being able to watch video while driving.

With the interface, you are able to play music from a flash drive, watch videos from a flash drive, mess around with some of the head units settings, play a slideshow, load custom PHONE skins (like when I press phone, it has a custom skin for the Galaxy Nexus)

I have posted on ***** to see if there are some other things that can be done with this interface so we will see.

I would highly recommend this to anyone..

Here is the link on *****.

Very cool. I had heard that he might be coming out with an exploit for the newer head unit software. I'll have to keep my eye on this, but for now I'm happy with the stock options.

Did you have to install any software on the actual HU itself? Or is it all loaded from the USB when its plugged in?

I'm mainly interested in the video playback (although the converting looks like its a pain.)

converting is easy.. I downloaded 'Total Video Converter' which is MUCH better than the standard Hyundai software. I can choose a specific resolution so it fills up the whole screen. takes a little while but I converted 13 movies last night for our trip to California this weekend. Tested them in the car and they look pretty good considering they are on a mediocre 7" screen, were in SD to begin with and then the resolution changed to be fill the screen.

Make sure when using non-Hyundai conversion software to pick these settings:

AVI MPEG4 format with MP3 audio. I used 850x480 for the resolution. Making it MP3 audio will decompress the file a bit, making it bigger. My average file size for SD movies after conversion is around 1.5GB. Got two 16GB flash drives.

It loads up from the USB. It does install 'pictures' to the HU which are for loading the sound drivers for the Interface.

My HU already has pictures installed on if factory unless it's a different version, cool stuff though I'll defiantly be picking it up

How do you enter codes in?
Follow the link that Turbosocks posted on the original post, and there is a section that explains step by step how to install the unlock batch and which code to enter, which is 90019001. With this code you can watch video while driving but not via the USB, it is via the AUX. So if you have a portable DVD player, or iPod Legacy you can connect it to the AUX with a 4-post cable (or A/V 3.5mm cable). On newer iPods you need to use the correct cable and use the A/V cable that Hyundai provided with the yellow, red, and white RCA connectors. To view from USB, you need to use the ELA viewer.

Edit: Viewing via the AUX, you don't need to convert your videos because the iPod is the player, or your portable DVD.

Bah... just saw this. Only had the car for less than 3 days and I'm spending more and more $$ on it.

Just got the software. Going to load it on a 128GB solid state hard drive along with this:
Right Angle 90°USB 2.0 A Male To USB 2.0 A Female Adapter Extension Cable 45cm | eBay

Going to tuck the USB cable nicely behind the plastic and run it into the glove box. Hopefully 45cm is enough. If not, I can always splice it and extend it.

Almost broke my USB stick the other day because it hang out so far.

ehh, its more along the line of if I forget, or say it in an accident and I am unable to change this, or the USB port breaks off.. Some circumstance that the dealer ends up with my car and finds the software modification. Guess I could always use the excuse of "It was like that when I bought it".. but still, just good info to know

Its like the equivalent of overclocking a CPU.. They cant really prove you did it unless you damaged the CPU in a certain manors, but it technically voids your warranty.

Runs great on my VT. There is no software that runs on your HU. It is all local to your USB Jump Drive. Now videos are playing just fine as we roll down the road.

went ahead and bought the software but have not installed it yet..
The install doesnt look complicated, just mildly irritating.. Anyone have any complaints about it yet?

I still have my reservations on setting it up.

No issues here. It is easy to install. And as long as you follow instructions, you will get it going in no time. Just make sure you have uploaded a picture to your HU before trying to play videos. There are quirks with it though: like if you raise the volume via the HU knob or the steering wheel it cuts out the video for a few seconds, and if you have a rear cam, when you switch to reverse it cuts off the video all together (which is understandable). The volume can be raised via the player interface and it will not stop the video.

So load a picture first, then while viewing the picture via the media options plug in your USB with all your videos and it will launch the software.

That's what's beautiful, it's not modifying the HU in any way. It's strictly a piece of software running on top of it. There is no modification done to the actual HU software though, so you're fine.
