as of right now i'm not sure what the issue is but i doubt i'll be able to get it to boot again, at the time of the video i forgot to hook up the remote wire for my booster amp so i wasn't getting any sound, after i went back and hooked it in i was un-able to get it to boot up again. i have everything pretty well insulated and definately didn't short anything so unless it's super sensitive to some ESD i would have picked up somewhere i'm out of idea's.
my old head unit runs just fine off of the same harness as does my booster amp and bluetooth car kit, all connections seem good. still working with innotrends to narrow down the issue. i didn't have time to try tethering but i did pair via bluetooth and was able to call and recieve calls, however it didn't import my contacts. i was planning on tethering via wifi hotspot off my nexus and using bluetooth for calls and OBDII data myself.
