Official RT6 Firmware Upgrade Instructions

Post by GiveMeABreak »

The following are the official instructions for updating RT6 2.86B firmware. Methods shown are for USB Stick and also the procedure for installation using the official Firmware CD.

Please read through to the end as there is information here that you will need to be aware of before starting the procedure.

I recommend that before any update to V2.86b, that you follow the 'Mirascripts Part A' from the MicroSD Card Upgrade Guide in order to save your user and vehicle configuration data first: (How to Replace the Internal MicroSD Card - RT6).

General
  • Do not operate the RT6 audio-navigation system either before or during the update, start the procedure immediately after the start-up of the product.
  • Update the software with the engine running.
  • Do not switch off the engine during the update.
  • Do not start the engine during the update.
  • Do not disconnect the battery during the update.
  • The vehicle network (communication + supply) must be present during the update.
  • Do not start any navigation route calculations prior to the update.
  • All updates must be followed by a save and complete dormancy of the audio-navigation system by switching off the ignition for 3 minutes.
  • No other media must be connected to the USB port or be present in the CD player (according to equipment).
  • If updating by USB stick: Do not disconnect the software update USB stick during the update.
  • If updating by CD ROM: Check the condition of the CD-ROM (no scratches, no dust, no fingermarks). Clean the CD ROM if it is dirty.
USB Method

Install the RT6 2.86B software on a USB stick observing the following procedure:
  • Format a USB 2.0 Flash USB stick with a capacity of between 2 GB and 8 GB to FAT 32
  • Decompress the file Firmware file and copy these files and folders onto the formatted USB stick as per the illustration below:

Post Update:

An update of the RT6 audio-navigation system calibration is needed in the case of the software version being lower than 2.70 before a software update. If the RT6 audio-navigation system calibration update is not carried out, the audio quality of telephone communications will be seriously affected. This will often need to be completed by the dealership.

To check if an update of the audio-navigation system calibration is needed, carry out the following procedure.
Using Diagbox:
  • Select the "repair" menu
  • Select the RNEG2010 ECU. Confirm
  • Select the menu « IDENTIFICATION »
Look at the parameter value "Number of downloads"
If the "Number of downloads" parameter is different to FE: No calibration update is needed.
If the "Number of downloads" parameter is equal to FE: Update the RT6 audio-navigation system calibration using the following procedure: Using the diagnostic tool connected to the Internet. (Note: this will require either the dealer to do this or that you have a PSA account and purchase diagnostic tokens in order to do this).

In the diagnostic tool:
Select the "repair" menu
Select the RNEG2010 ECU. Confirm
Select the "Download" menu then "Download a new calibration version"
