Warning! There is a remote chance of you ‘bricking’ the unit, this is a fraction of a percent but it could happen! The process takes around 60 minutes.

Warning! Users with cars MY07 and earlier may experience power drain issues after the upgrade. See the post “Upgrading 2nd generation radios (RCD 300, RCD 500) to 3rd generation (RCD 210, RCD 310, RNS 310, RCD 510) power drain issue” for more details.

  • Hi There,

    I’ve had a really good read but I can’t find anyone with the radio boot loop issue running my version of SW (6276). Head unit is in continuous loop sometimes it works straight away other times takes up to 45 minutes.

    HW- Version: H04
    SW- Version: 6276
    Part Number: 1K8035680

    I am unable to find anyone with that HW and Software combo, is there anyone who can please help me with what to do, I was going to try and re-run the 6276 and see if that makes any difference.
