Volvo Vida stopped working and you cannot login?

If your new installation of Volvo Vida (2012 up to 2014D) does not work – you cannot log in, after fresh and proper installation. Or your existing installation stopped working… well this is because patched license has expired recently (like in 1.1.2018).

Download „patch” (2014A+) that you usually have to apply after installation of Vida, and extract „exe” file to C:\ drive (or wherever is your Vida) – do not run it, just extract it (with WinRar, 7zip etc). This exe file is just self extracting archive with post extract script.

You should have those files, after extracting:

Archive: 2014A.exe
Details: RAR 4, SFX

Now the „license” file is in C:\VIDA\patch\. Look inside of it for a string:

subscriptionExpireDate=”2017-12-31 23:59:59″

Looks suspicious in year 2018?

  • just change the date in license file
  • make sure VidaMonitor and all java instances are off (javaw etc),
  • and execute filldb.cmd,
  • reboot and you are good to go!

If this doesn’t work – you probably did not kill VidaMonitor or Jboss/Java.

Good luck and fruitful hacking! 馃檪

Jak przerobi膰 telefon pok艂adowy Volvo XC70/V70 na zestaw g艂o艣nom贸wi膮cy

W Volvo XC70 z 2006 roku, mia艂em telefon pok艂adowy. Sk艂ada艂 si臋 on z klawiatury telefonicznej (a pod ni膮 ca艂ego modu艂u GSM i GPS), s艂uchawki fizycznej w pod艂okietniku, g艂o艣nika w

Klawiatura telefonu XC70, a pod ni膮 modu艂 GSM i GPS.

zag艂贸wku kierowcy i mikrofony przy lusterku wstecznym. Zestaw uzupe艂niaj膮 przyciski odbierania i odrzucania po艂膮cze艅 na kierownicy.

Niby fajnie, mo偶e i kilka lat temu by艂 by to przydatny zestaw – teraz nie mog艂em dla niego znale藕膰 sensownego zastosowania. Dodatkowa karta SIM, przekierowywanie numer贸w… innymi s艂owy za du偶o zachodu, a w ko艅cu w ca艂ym tym przedsi臋wzi臋ciu chodzi o wygod臋.

Najprostszym rozwi膮zaniem (kt贸re i tak wdro偶y艂em – nie chcia艂em wyrzuca膰 mojego, 艣wie偶o co nabytego z samochodem, HU805) jest dokupienie systemu bluetooth/aux/usb do radia, podpinanego pod z艂膮cze zmieniarki/nawigacji (w wypadku V70/XC70 z tego okresu). Ale nie mamy wtedy osobnego mikrofonu (chyba 偶e zainstalujemy z zestawu), radio musi pracowa膰 w trybie zmieniarki – by mo偶na by艂o rozmawia膰 i s艂ysze膰, 偶e kto艣 dzwoni oraz dodatkowo rozwi膮zanie to wydawa艂o mi si臋 ma艂o eleganckie.

Szybkie studiowanie Vida i moje obawy, 偶e i tym razem kto艣 mocno przekombinowa艂 system GSM w samochodzie, zosta艂y rozwiane – mikrofon i g艂o艣nik doprowadzone s膮 normalnie (nie w postaci zakodowanej, zaagregowanej do szyny itp.) wtyczk膮 do modu艂u telefonu. Czyli mo偶emy dzia艂a膰!
