Devices (GU) must contain on board the following chips:
Android processor - AC / MT 8227L
audio processor - TDA7729 (TDA7719, CSC37033, SCS37534)
Bluetooth - MT6625
Radio - NXP A5105 (NXP6851?)
MCU controller - STM32F030C8T6

Devices with an audio processor CSC37033, CSC37534 do not have a NXP A5105 radio chip - the integrated radio is used in the MT6625 combo type.

No program will show you the contents of the GU, only an autopsy will show

What is MCU - In short: The MCU (Microcontroller Unit or, according to other sources, the Media Controller Unit) is a stand-alone computer, usually performed on a separate motherboard with its own processor, memory, and programmable inputs and outputs. Peripherals — a radio receiver (radio tuner), a DVD player, a Bluetooth hands-free device, a low frequency amplifier, and others — are connected to the MCU. Another part of the head unit - the computer running the Android OS - interacts with the MCU, transmitting commands to it and receiving responses to them. More details about the MCU can be found: https: //forum.xda-deve…ead_Unit/MCU_Explained

as far as I could see, according to Aide, the architecture here is practically the same for everyone. However, at least two different devices in the subject live. You would lay out a screen where the firmware number is mcu and android.

Screen about the system, too, throw a new one. There is a guess.

What I stepped on yesterday, my font was set large, and the mcu version did not fit.

Here is the screen:

And you have a fresh one, 1.3 at the end. I have 1.0.

Or it depends on iron.

I asked the seller mcu update, it is quite responsive to me. But it seems to me that everything they had, they have already sent.

And how are things going with your root?

Updated the device with this firmwarehttps: //drive.google.c...DmLk8/view? usp = sharing. Small changes there. But there is no hot start. Yandex navigator began to work correctly (the sound muffles the sound after the alert continues to play music) when playing music from a flash drive, the sound mixing control in the sound menu started working. It did not work before.

Another point appeared to select the region of the radio.

One moment. From one port, the load is about a third and an error. From the other, everything turned out.
