    Text Color Change in MMI

    I am on the hunt to see if anyone has ever changed the text colors in the mmi screens via vagcom? I really hate the orange text color they use and was curious if you knew anyone that has coded it out somehow. It would be awesome if it were white and red...one can dream? Anyway thanks for the help in advance.

    Best,

    YES THIS.

    Someone please find a way. Everything else on the interior is red and white, and then they have orange for all the audio screens

    I ran a bash script on my car to list all the file names and dump them into a file on my sd card. Unfortunately I didn't find any config related to this.. I guess those a just hard coded and gets compiled to the firmware. Maybe someone with more experience might know where to look for.

    honestly if someone was able to pull these files, maybe a few of us with coding experience could modify the screens. Maybe add in what I've always wanted and many cars have which is a display of common gauges. I mean MMI should in theory be able to pull that info from the ECU from what I would assume.

    It honestly bugs me so much! If you just leave it on car then it will be red...but doesn’t fix the issue.

    How would one go about pulling the files?

    I would personally just use the p3 gauge, but gauges on mmi would be awesome. BMW already has the feature why can’t we ?

    Not exactly sure what files you are referring to , but I believe anyone who has done the MMI version update has the files. I'm in the process of doing this with Phil right now.

    I'm very familiar with linux kernel and I've contributed many commits to upstream kernel. But I think cracking audi's MMI is very difficult because we don't have access to source code and they don't seem to use a config file for color (Which I consider bad practise), so I think the thing that can be done is very limited.

    Yep, i gave one "Linux guy" files long time ago and no success...even if we could find a real source of text color, other story will be how to crack and change this and if test will fail:), nobody will waste such time, as you may spend week for this and 0 result.


    Looks like some people like to have this:)
