    I tried to update my Opel Astra C072I following your instruction but now I can see:

    Illegal update package, upgrade terminated!
    Please contact your local dealer!

    If I try to update the firmware a RED screen say:
    ERROR: Upgrade package does not match!

    What can I do, now????

    Ok, SOLVED!
    1. open "update.ini" into "image" folder
    2. add a new line: oeminfo=HFZ
    3. save
    4. update firmware

      Hi Maxetere, thanks for solution. The best way is like this

      1. make sure you have removed the firmware card before starting
      2. restart system
      3. insert firmware card
      4. go to setting, setup GPS path to \patch\UpgradePatch.exe
      5. back to main screen, click Navi. it reminds patch is updated
      6. restart to update firmware, you won't have the illegal issue now.

                          Hi RoadNav

                          Thanks for your help and assistance. I have a Holden Colorade ute, and will appreciate some answers for the following:

                          1. I had some issues with my unit, and was sent a C203I "upgrade", with APP Edition S100-V1.1.9.0. Is this the latest firmware? This is my system spec:

                          2. I tried to update this with a C203 version with APP Edition S100-V1.1.9.18, but I get the same warnings as Wallahoo above:

                          WARNING Illegal update package, upgrade terminated!
                          Please contact your local dealer!

                          When i try to patch the system a message appear : patch is forbidden

                          Can you please help?

                          Many thanks
