So i have purchased a 2-din 6.2″ Android to install into my 2011 Chevrolet Silverado (non-Bose radio). My intent is to make sure it is rooted, upgraded from Gingerbread to Jelly Bean, and tethered to my Galaxy Nexus.
Other modifications I wish to do include a Tasker profile to run a dropbox-sync when it sees my home WiFi (hopefully in the time between driving into my garage and the retained-accessory-power (RAP) turning it off).
I will also be connecting this to the steering – wheel controls, to the OBD-II sensor via Bluetooth, and to a rearview camera, as well as to the stock (OnStar) microphone.
I have purchased an Axxess ASWC and an Axxess GMOS-LAN-01 to do the wiring & canbus hookup. I have also purchased a Metra GM Multi-kit 95-3305 faceplate adapter.
There are some existing threads about these family of stereos (I believe they are all the same OEM, just different manufacturer labels), e.g. @ XDA, 4PDA, and 4PDA.
The stereo arrives at the end of this week, so the fun will start then. Until then, i can only see the img files and build.prop etc.
