Default Where can I find disaster recovery option - 07-19-2019, 04:45 PM

I got stuck with no firmware on my car. App phone won't connect to the jb4.
Car cranks , but stalls after 10 seconds.Need to download firmware again.
I need a disaster recovery , so I don't have to mail my clipboard for reflash.

There likely isn't one. How did you get stuck with no firmware exactly?

May need to purchase another 2580 chipset on our site for $25 or send the board in to be hard flashed.

We simply don't frequent this forum for support tickets very often. As stated in our main post, if you require support email us directly at support@jb4connectkit.com.

Going back to the question, yes disaster recovery is there and is called 'Disaster Recovery' on Android and 'D.R.' on iOS. This can be found near the bottom of the Settings tab. I'll be updating the name of that on iOS to match Android.
